The holographic summit focuses on new technologies and business models for theater operators and arena owners. It leapfrogs virtual reality and augmented reality, discussing technologies for digital holograms without use of a wearable device.
Why is this important? In recent years the theater industry has faced a dilemma; moviegoers attendance had decreased to only 1 to 2 movies a year. The reason was simple. The ability to download the movie and watch it on a large screen at home bypassed and replaced the need to leave the home.
Current immersive technologies that are currently advertised involve wearing a large obtrusive headset. This eliminates the ability to share the experience with others. It also further bypasses the need to leave the house, therby harming revenues of movie theatres.
It is our belief that movie theaters, arenas and outdoor event spaces can vastly improve their revenues and profits by utilizing technologies that only works well in a large space. Any replication within the home would give an experience that would be poor.
Holographics is a solution to this problem. In 1977, the first Star Wars movie gave us an iconic image of a futuristic view; the hologram. A 3 dimensional image projected into space that can be viewed from any angle. For years, the technology required had only been theoretical up until recently. Currently, some of the last barriers to functional digital holography are being overcome. Novel types of displays and methods of capturing transmitting 3D data are some of the technologies from research teams across the globe bringing the dream to reality.
The event is for:
We intend to show technologies that require minimal construction expenses. We recognize that most theaters have fixed seating and changing the physical structure would be cost prohibitive.
With each holographic technology illustrated at this event, expected costs, including construction costs will be discussed. You will be shown financial models for these types of projections, including alternative and common revenue structures.
The production of holographic films will be covered.
The one day fast paced Holographic Summit will consist of intensive seminars and networking.
Sponsorships are available for the event. We urge all delegates at the event to meet our sponsors in person to build relationships.
Our conferences are designed so delegates learn significant amounts of information quickly. We also create a friendly environment: In addition to being a great learning experience, you will meet and make a lot of friends. I hope to see you there.
If you've never been to our trade shows before, you will learn significantly while at the same time make alot of friends in the industry. We hope that you will find this event stimulating, interesting a great learning experience. I hope to see you there.
