We’ve built large stages for Paris Fashion Week for A.F. Vandevorst’s Showroom and smaller presentations with a presenter giving information for IPPE, Atlanta for Merck.
3D Holographic Projection Technology options:
Pepper’s Ghost effect
The Holographic Stage can be made with the Pepper’s Ghost effect if you have enough space. It employs a complicated installation that employs reflections to achieve the goal of displaying a floating hologram in the project’s centre. The success of the event is ensured with Virtual On’s 3D Holographic Projection Systems, and visitors will be stunned by the extremely compelling effect.
If you’re searching for a short-term 3d projection hologram for an installation like a concert, exhibition, or corporate event, the HoloNet or Holo Gauze might be the best option because it’s more practical and cost-effective. Whether you need a pre-recorded film or a Holographic Telepresence event, we can provide it using the most up-to-date audio-visual approaches.
HoloNet or Holo Gauze
The Holographic Net, also known as HoloNet or Holo Gauze, is the most common means to display a hologram on stage. It doesn’t take up a lot of room and can produce a spectacular hologram video. The success of the event is assured with Virtual On’s 3D Holographic Projection Systems.
For a permanent display in a museum, gallery, or hall, we may create a custom installation that meets the environment’s needs, as well as the size and style of the space. If you need a temporary installation for a performance, exhibition, or business event, flexibility is essential. We offer the perfect Hologram Projection Technology System to produce an event with a pre-recorded or Holographic Telepresence movie that meets all standards and creates a memorable experience.

Benefits of the Holographic HoloNet or Holo Gauze
Pre-Recorded 3D Hologram Event
Normally, video 3D Holographic Telepresence is achieved by filming a presenter in at least two ways:
- Recording a speech in which the speaker (teacher, mentor, or VIP) delivers the entire message.
- Filming a presenter acting out a chat with another presenter, using a pre-written script.
Special 3D Projection Hologram effects can be applied to the hologram after filming to make it look futuristic, and it will be played on the stage on the event day.
3D Holographic Telepresence Technology
A Holographic Telepresence can be utilised in lectures, corporate events, or exhibitions; however, the setup is far more complicated than a pre-recorded Holographic Show, in which the hologram is prepared with special effects to make it seem beautiful.
The Holographic Telepresence is created by two teams working in a studio, one gathering audio-visual content and the other presenting it. There are numerous technological issues that must be considered in order to complete the project properly, and Virtual On has that experience.

Yes, a screen can be transparent, there are two types, active and passive. There are three types of active Transparent Screens: LCD, Oled, LED technology. A passive screen can be any transparent surface treated with special film or paint become reflective filtering part of the light received from a projector.
No, it does not work in direct sunlight, it requires a low level of light, semi or dark place.
HoloNet is coated in silver, which reflects 70% lighter than regular gauze, this makes the images brighter, more vibrant and seem more realistic.
HoloNet must be handled with care as with any type of projection screen, however, it is robust as mesh and long lasting.
HoloNet is fully reusable and we currently have one that has been in use for almost 2 years. However, due to the use of a silver coating on the weave it is expected that if a HoloNet is left rigged for a long period of time it may change colour tarnish slightly but this does not damage the hologram effect.
Yes, it can. However the image will be nowhere near as bright as if you are front projecting.
All holograms are best suited to be shown in a blacked out space where you have control of the lighting. However, depending on the brightness of the projector and how much ambient light you have, it is possible to view holograms in a slightly lighter environment.
For a basic HoloNet set-up you only need one projector, if you would like an even bigger image or make the image brighter you can blend more than one projector. In terms of which projector to use, the decision is based on your staging environment for example, if there is ambient light around where you want your hologram then you would need a more powerful projector, whereas if you are working on a small HoloNet in an almost blacked out room you could use a smaller one.
The image can be seen technically from two sides, front and back, however the best and most vibrant image is always on the front. Viewing angles vary from one venue to another, so if you need any help finding the optimal position we are happy to help.
Yes, the HoloNet / Holo Gauze is flame retardant.
The HoloNet / Holo Gauze can come with eyelets over the perimeter, these are then used to cable tie or bungee tie flat on the truss or scaffolding.
HoloNet or Holo Gauze screens can be adjusted to practically any sizes.
The Holo Gauze or HoloNet does not require too much room for the installation, but it depends on the HoloNet‘s size, in general terms, we require a minimum of 7x3m to do a human size projection, there is not restriction on how big it can be.
Basically, there are three elements required during the installation: the HoloNet, the projector and a black background behind the net.
Holo Gauze is a type of screen used to do Holographic Projections, unlike the reflection system, it is used with direct projection making the system much easier to install.
The Holo-Gauze or HoloNet are terms that refer to the same type of screen used in Holographic Projections, ones it is installed it should be practically invisible at naked eye on which the projection is made.
Yes, it is possible to homemade holograms. You would need some powerful projectors and knowledge about video creation. Some techniques require the use of moving mirrors, lenses and screens.
In simple words, a hologram is an optical illusion that gives you the sense of seeing things floating in the air.
In few words, hologram technology is an optical illusion. But going deeper, At the point when a laser shaft is separated to make a visualization, the light waves in the two pieces of the pillar are going in indistinguishable manners. In this way, as you move your head around, the holographic picture seems to change similarly as the picture of a genuine article changes. Also, that is the reason 3D images seem, by all accounts, to be three-dimensional.
A reflective panel of glass is set on a stage and angled down toward a hidden booth. When the hidden booth is illuminated, it reflects an image onto the pane of glass, which then reflects the image toward the audience. At eye level, this image would look squished (remember, the glass is angled).
Holograms can be part of the normal used of Universities or Colleges to bring teachers to the stage with pre-recorded speeches or experts, mentors or VIP from all around the world to the auditorium or event room, giving audience to see them live without the need to be there physically.
Absolutely, Holographic Lectures can be done in a variety of ways, it is not only part of a futuristic movie, but it is part of our present and used in different sectors such as education, finance, public or leisure among others.
Telepresence is a transfer of audio and video image of a person or other things to a another location that can be close or in a different part of the world. Normally it is used to send a full body video image that looks freely in space.

Absolutely, Holographic Lectures can be done for in a variety of ways, it is not only part of a futuristic movie, but it is part of our present and it can be used in different sectors as education, finance, public or leisure to mention some.
A Holographic Lecture is the communication through an audiovisual image of a person from a different location that can only talk or that can interact with other speakers on the stage or with the audience sitting in the auditorium.
Video Conferencing normally involves one or multiple persons having audiovisual contact each other for work, family, leisure or other reasons, but always involves a portable device such as a computer, mobile phone or tablet that holes a camera and a microphone to capture video and audio and send it by internet. Telepresence is normally used to transfer a person as a video to a different location that looks full body freely moving and talking without a visible device to capture the video image, that’s not meant that the device such as a camera and microphone is not there but is not visible.

Yes! The HoloNet or Holo Gauze can be used outdoors but with restrictions about whether as is not to be used wet, if the installation is to be used over the night and the weather (rain, wind or sun) is not affecting the equipment, there is not a problem.
3D Projection HoloNet is a flexible mesh with a strong capability to reflect light, it also calls Holo Gauze or Holographic Screen. At difference that is commonly said in internet the screen is not for 3D content it is for a 2D video content that is carefully developed to achieve a “Holographic Effect“. This technique should not be confused with the reflection system or Pepper’s Ghost effect that is not the same and require a much bigger and complex installation.
Hologram Mesh Stage or Holographic HoloNet makes reference to the type of screen that is being used to do a Holographic projection. The words Mesh, Net or Gauze is referring to the same type of screen which can be also stretchable, it becomes very popular because the durability, practicality to install and reduce the amount of equipment that it require to create an easy to scale hologram on the stage.
Video content to be used in every Holographic Device should be with black background and avoiding to look flat, if the object is in constantly moving and spinning and looks volumetric it trick the eye to create a perfect illusion.
The Holographic Screen is a physical surface (rigid or flexible) that allow to filter the light and hide the black colour. When the setup is correct, it can display an object (real human, animations) free of background so the eye will see it in suspension floating freely on that surface.
A truly video content displaying floating in the air is not possible at the moment.
A true hologram it that not exist as a such capability to display a video image from one place to another, but a holographic effect can be done in a different ways depending on the size, space available and lighter on the environment. In Virtual On we use basically two techniques which are direct transmission and reflection.
Changing content is very easy. Simply place the SD card with the new video content and the unit will start playing it.
Yes. It can either be done by us or do it on your own, it depends on how specialised your video team is. Each display requires a different type of video so, knowing how to do it is key to enhance the experience. We strongly advice to let us to create the video content as per our experience even if it is a very good video developer company, more often they don’t know how to do it properly and its cause a poor customer experience or double cost as the video need to be done twice.
Yes, you can connect any external device using the appropriate connection.
No. It requires a 2D file such as AVI, MP4, WMV or similar, the 3D video format are used to create the animation, but it need to be rendered on 2D in any common format like MP4 to be played on the devices. This is also described in specific catalogue.
Yes. The media player on the display will play all the supported files on the SD card in order. Once all videos have been played it will start again.
Most of our displays such as Digital Signage, Holographic Display, Magic Mirror, Transparent Display and Virtual Mannequin support commune video formats like: MP4, WMV, AVI, MPEG.
