2-metre long 4K hologram goes on show

Amethys Technologies, a producer of holographic display systems has produced a UHD (Ultra High Definition) holographic showcase measuring 2-metres long (86-in) for the IDEX exhibition in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

IDEX is world biggest defence exhibition, and took place in late February. The show was the world premiere for the 4K hologram, which has a resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels.

The display was created for Rheinmetall Defence, a German company specialising in products for military applications.

The display featured bespoke 3D content of Rheinmetall's products -floating' with the clear display. The contents shows the Oerlikon Fieldranger in action, it is a high precision stabilised 20mm remote controlled weapon station designed for mounting on armored personnel carriers or on special forces vehicles.

It took three months for Amethys to develop and produce the UHD holographic display and it took another two months for Amethys to create and develop the 4K holographic animation.

The solution belongs to Rheinmetall, and it will be using it at international fairs around the world, or in its Swiss shorrom during the rest of the year.
