AIIA congratulates 2018 iAwards winners and finalists. The inspiration behind this year’s iAwards program has been truly staggering. We look forward to the next 25 years of celebrating innovation.” Voxon’s 3D volumetric technology brings digital content to life and helps empower people to visualise, communicate, learn and have fun in a collaborative manner with no need for glasses, goggles or headgear. Voxon Photonics have now sold the Voxon VX1 3D volumetric display in more than 15 countries around the world and are getting noticed by some of the world’s leading technology organisations in a multitude of markets such as education, medical, gaming, engineering visualization, communications, automotive and marketing. The VX1 allows objects, animations, games and real-time 3D data being able to be viewed from any angle by a number of people, the display also becomes a social experience. The volumetric technology may be cutting-edge however emotionally, it couldn’t be simpler. When people see the VX1 in action, regardless of their age, interests or background, they are mesmerized. There, right in front of their eyes, is science fiction – magic – made real. Voxon is attending major events such as TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco and Mobile World Congress Americas in LA and then heading to the Tokyo Game Show, all in September. Partnering with some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies, the future is bright for Voxon Photonics. For those of us that needed holograms, the future is here.  - ENDS -   For further media information contact: Will Tamblyn CEO and Co-Founder will@voxon.co 0433 623 625   Lynton Manuel Marketing and Communications Manager lynton@voxon.co 0405 343 770   About Voxon Photonics: Voxon Photonics are the creators of the world's most advanced 3D volumetric display.

After nine years of research and development, true 3D volumetric displays, or hologram technology, has come of age. You can now get your hands on the world’s most advanced 3D volumetric display (often referred to as a hologram) and it may not be as expensive as you think. Voxon Photonics, headquartered in Adelaide, Australia, has just delivered two VX1’s to Australian educational facilities and is about to send another one out to a major university in the United States. There will be some very excited students (and teachers) over the next few weeks. These students will be able to display true 3D volumetric content right in front of their eyes and create their own images, animations and games for the displays. Voxon Photonics CEO Will Tamblyn commented after delivering the Voxon VX1’s to the educational facilities, “It’s a blank canvas as far as content goes. We can't wait to see what amazing things the students will create for the VX1. I was expecting the kids to be excited, I just wasn’t expecting the teachers to be so excited!”. Voxon Photonics has also started leasing out the Voxon VX1 for events. About the Voxon VX1 Imagine a world where you can view a three-dimensional digital hologram in high definition, from any angle, with no illusions and no special glasses. The Voxon VX1 is the world’s most advanced 3D volumetric display makes this happen - a 3D, real-time, interactive hologram which can be viewed from any direction without glasses, headsets or special effects, in colour. The VX1 enables a unique shared social experience, where people gather around, see any 3D data being displayed and interact with genuine face to face communication. The Voxon VX1 hasn’t just taken 3D interaction to another level, it has launched it into a whole new dimension. “What we have here is different from anything you will have seen before, I never tire of people's reactions to it.  It’s a mix of “Oh Wow”, “Holy @#$%”, and often just stunned silence.  Once people understand the potential, that’s when you can see their brain really engaging. The ideas just start flowing... “ - Gavin Smith, Voxon Photonics CTO The Voxon VX1 technology In technical terms, the Voxon VX1 is a volumetric display. At the core is an ultra-high-speed digital light engine and a highly-optimised volume rendering engine. This unique combination of hardware and software is capable of projecting over half a billion points of light every second into physical volumetric space. Geometry that is being rendered is sliced up into hundreds of digital horizontal cross sections before being projected synchronously onto a specially designed high-speed reciprocating screen. As the photons of light hit the screen, they are diffused and form a physical cross-sectional image at precisely the right place in physical space. Through persistence of vision, the human eye blends hundreds of layers together, and the result is a true three-dimensional representation of data that can be viewed in the same way as one would view a real object, from any angle, and without special goggles or glasses. Unlimited potential While the first few customers have been in the education and advertising / marketing industries, the Voxon VX1 has unlimited potential. The Voxon VX1 is fast gathering interest across a number of industries such as; medical imaging, gaming, entertainment, mining, architecture and design, advertising and marketing, education, air traffic control and more.
