VividQ continuously supports the best research in holographic display by hosting graduate students, led by the company’s co-founder and Chief Scientist Dr Andrzej Kaczorowski. EngD Candidate and VividQ Research Student Aaron Demolder was awarded the ‘Best Short Paper Award’ atThe 17th ACM SIGGRAPH European Conference on Visual Media Production (CVMP 2020).Aaron presented his short paper, entitled “Artistic Control of Defocus in Computer-Generated Holography”, at the virtual conference. The award was sponsored by NVIDIA.The project aims to improve image quality and viewing experience. In his paper, he demonstrates how holograms allow us the flexibility of precisely controlling the shape of defocus without any overhead on the compute. The 3D holographic images can be modified to defocus into a square, circle, or even the outline of a butterfly.Aaron’s project, which bridges art, graphics, visual effects and computer-generated holography (CGH), is part of VividQ’s ongoing research and development to retain its world-leading expertise in CGH.The pioneering work in Computer-Generated Holography is a result of a collaboration between VividQ and the Centre for Digital Entertainment. The research was supported by academic supervisor, Dr Hammadi Nait-Charif from Bournemouth University, Dr Andrzej Kaczorowski, Co-founder and Chief Scientist at VividQ and Alfred Newman, Head of Research at VividQ.You can read the short paper here, or watch Aaron’s presentation on YouTube (6:48) below:
