BROOKLYN, NY — Looking Glass (http://look.glass/8k) has introduced the 8K Immersive Display, a high-resolution holographic display that doesn't require the use of VR or AR headsets. The unit is four times the scale of other displays on the market, measuring in at 32-inches, with holographic depth measured in feet rather than inches. The Looking Glass 8K will be available worldwide, with the first public demonstration at the Digital Content Expo in Japan this month. Pre-orders are being accepted globally, with shipments starting Spring of 2020.
The unit is powered by Looking Glass Factory's proprietary 45-element light field technology and can be experienced by groups of up to a dozen people. The Looking Glass 8K delivers 33.2 million pixels, with over a billion-count color gamut at 60Hz, making it not only the largest holographic display in the market today but also the highest fidelity. The display operates on optical principles and a software platform that doesn't require any head-tracking or VR or AR headsets, making it well suited for companies that want to collaboratively view or interact with 3D images in the areas of retail, mapping/GIS, medical imaging and entertainment.
Demonstration units of the Looking Glass 8K are being hosted in Brooklyn, Hong Kong, San Francisco, and Tokyo, with viewings by appointment only. The first advanced beta run of the Looking Glass 8K displays have sold out, but pre-orders are being accepted now for the next production batch, with orders shipping in the order they are received, starting Spring 2020.
