The University's recent press release announced that we have granted an exclusive licence to ALPS Electric Company Limited for a core holographic projection patent. This is an important milestone in the relationship between the Department of Engineering and ALPS, which started when ALPS became a founding strategic partner in the Centre for Advanced Photonics and Electronics (CAPE).
The experienced academic team of Professor Bill Crossland, Dr Neil Collings and Dr Tim Wilkinson is working very closely with ALPS to bring this technology to market through the ViHPS (Video Holographic Projection Display Systems) project. Jamieson Christmas, ALPS' Chief Engineer in the UK, is fully integrated with this academic team and is based in our labs in Cambridge.
Their impressive prototype was demonstrated earlier this year in Tokyo at the ALPS Show, which was attended by more than 6000 people from technical companies and the press. This device had a footprint about the same size as a credit card. It showed real-time images from a video camera as guests approached the exhibit using no more processing power than an ordinary laptop computer.
