Holography In Colour and Real Time

Wammes und Partner presents holographic solutions in real time and color for electronic displays.

Using a technology developed by Wammes und Partner, holographic displays can be implemented in electronic displays - in real time, color and high resolution. Existing volumetric data can also be displayed holographically.

For example, the technology allows a Virtual Observer Window (VoW) of about 45° in all directions with a virtual image size of 1 x 0.75 m and uses 0.5 mm Hogels (holographic optical element). With a resulting directional resolution of, for example, 128 rays/hogel and 60 frames per second, the display works in real time. A sample display from Wammes und Partner calculates around 45 million light beams per second at a physical base size of 36 x 25 x 10 cm and thus displays real three-dimensional medical computer tomography data, for example.

Managing director Klaus Wammes emphasizes that he is not interested in a finished holographic display. "We do not offer a finished product that can be ordered from a catalogue by serial number. We offer the highly complex technology, the know-how, the possibility to realize such or comparable technical solutions." This is because the system is based on a modular principle and can be used across all applications and manufacturers. However, they must be able to manufacture their own equipment depending on the effort, interfaces or technical requirements.

Nevertheless, holography is no longer a vision of the future, at the latest now, but is increasingly being used on a broad basis. Wammes cites the example of Big Data: "Data volumes are now too large to be checked quickly and easily, let alone validated. Holography creates a new approach here. Enormous amounts of data can be visualized in volumetric formations and, depending on the form of presentation, plausibility checked or validated very quickly. According to the expert, the first application scenarios in medicine and geodesy are planned.
