During CES 2018, Realfiction, a developer of mixed-reality solutions, will introduce the latest breakthrough in mixed reality, known as DeepFrame. The world’s biggest mixed-reality display made possible with OLED technology, DeepFrame enables the viewing of 4K resolution photorealistic images and videos through a glass window.
Mixed reality adds realistic virtual objects to images and video of the real world that have much of the detail of real-world objects. Unlike some other virtual and augmented reality systems, DeepFrame doesn’t require spectators to use any particular eyewear. For the first time ever, the patent-pending technology makes it possible to integrate digital holograms directly into everyday views and settings. This integration of digital holograms allows a group of people to experience the same Mixed Reality simultaneously.
The DeepFrame Mixed-Reality System Has Already Begun Winning Awards
In recognition of its product design and engineering, DeepFrame was recently named a finalist in the display technology category at the upcoming InAVation Awards and named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree.
DeepFrame utilizes a curved 4K OLED screen to project an ultra-high-resolution image, video or animation.
The image, video, or animation is deflected and enlarged on a transparent custom-made glass optic. Tailoring the visual for a physical environment lets an audience experience a glasses-free, mixed-reality view collectively in real time. A standard DeepFrame display is 64 inches, but it will be available in other sizes in the near future.
With a surprise demonstration, DeepFrame was unveiled this past May at the Danish National Aquarium. For the surprise demonstration, a 3D rocket launched out of a still water bank.
Founded in 2008 with headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, Realfiction first created the Dreamoc collection of pyramid-shaped mixed-reality displays to showcase products in combination with 3D holographic animations. Since its launch in 2008, the Dreamoc product has sold over 10,000 units worldwide and is used by such leading brands as Tag Heuer, Samsung, and Louis Vuitton.
“With DeepFrame, our goal is to re-write the rules of mixed-reality and transform the way the public interacts with digital elements,” said Clas Dyrholm, Realfiction co-founder and CEO. “By removing the need for glasses, we’ve evolved mixed-reality from a traditionally accessorized and isolated experience into something that can be spontaneous and social. Like the Dreamoc, we anticipate DeepFrame being applied to a broad range of industries, including retail, education, and entertainment.”
“The technology behind DeepFrame is, at its core, both simple and extremely complex,” said Peter Simonsen, Realfiction co-founder and head of R&D. “The seemingly holographic effect is achieved by bending the omitted light with the use of high precision optical layers, which are normally manufactured for deep space telescopes.”
