Volumetric Cinema Explores 360[degrees] Holographic Experience.

Researchers at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Media Lab and Harvard University are collaborating on a volumetric cinema project that explores and investigates the possibilities of 360-degree 3D holographic cinema.

In the first phase of the project in spring 2019, researchers explored the possibilities of volumetric cinema through the production and development of a set of experimental films. Later this year the project will culminate in the creation of a short film produced and screened on a Voxon VX1.

A Voxon VX1 is a cutting-edge 3D volumetric display that aims to make such displays practical. Its 3D pixels create the equivalent of film grain, and its colours fade to enable the audience to view an image made of light floating in space before them.

VX1 is also capable of playing with scale and perspective while still being able to zoom in, swirl around and create camera movement.
