Good holographic display is probably not as difficult as you think

One of the first critiques of holographic display that we often hear is “that would be great to have but its really hard to do.  Your displays need to be really high-resolution, you need tiny pixels and don’t even get me started on the enormous amount of compute resources you need to get acceptable image quality”. In this talk, I’ll show that these problems are not as bad as they may appear on first inspection, give some insight into how VividQ is solving them and a perspective on our view of the roadmap for the emergence of holographic technology in the market.


Darran Milne, CEO, VividQ

Darran is CEO and co-founder of VividQ, a UK based deep tech startup with strong links to the University of Cambridge. VividQ has created a software platform with a revolutionary suite of algorithms to enable the mass consumer adoption of 3D holographic display within the next generation of augmented and mixed reality devices, automotive HUDs and home entertainment systems. VividQ has attracted £3mn in venture funding with backers such as Suir Valley Ventures and Essex Innovations.

Before starting VividQ, Darran worked in Fintech, creating enterprise quantitative risk management solutions for banks and hedge funds. Previous to this, he was a researcher in quantum information theory – designing specialized quantum systems for use in quantum computation. His PhD focused on a particular class of quantum states known as topological (anyonic) states.
