Event description


With Thomas Burnett, CTO; and Viz graduates Christopher Portales and Rathinavel Sankaralingam

No prior technical knowledge is necessary to attend.

This technical deep dive presentation will review:

  • What are light-field displays and why are they important?

  • The application agnostic light-field display architecture being developed at FoVI3D.

  • General light-field display properties and characteristics such as field of view, directional resolution, and their effect on the 3D aerial image.

  • The computation challenge for generating high-fidelity light-fields.

  • A display agnostic, open source ecosystem.

Human binocular vision and acuity, and the accompanying 3D retinal processing of the human eye and brain are specifically designed to promote situational awareness and understanding in the natural 3D world. The ability to resolve depth within a scene whether natural or artificial improves our spatial understanding of the scene and as a result reduces the cognitive load accompanying the analysis and collaboration on complex tasks.
