VividQ Showcases Optical Engine for High-Contrast, Full-Depth Holographic Display in AR Headsets

The VividQ Alpha Optical Engine Demonstrator will Accelerate the Development of High-End AR Headsets by Device Manufacturers for Gaming and Entertainment Applications.

We are excited to announce the launch of our latest cutting-edge technology, unveiled for the first time at the SID Display Week Conference in San Jose, California. VividQ’s Alpha Optical Engine Demonstrator displays high-resolution 3D visuals (60 PPD) with excellent contrast and realistic focal depth using Computer-Generated Holography (CGH), the process of engineering light in software.

CGH provides the only solution for high-performance AR display, allowing users to naturally focus on content across multiple depth planes. These innovations address many shortcomings of today’s AR devices, allowing for easier interaction with AR content within arm’s reach, and prioritising user comfort by solving the notorious vergence-accommodation conflict (VAC). Holographic display powered by VividQ technology solves these issues that limit the adoption of AR wearables today and unlocks applications in Gaming, Entertainment and the Metaverse for the first time.


This video depicts a large depth of field. There is an extensive focal range between the Earth and the spaceman. The content is displayed at close range, which is not possible in AR headsets today.

As a plug-and-play benchtop solution, the Alpha Optical Engine Demonstrator provides a simple and cost-effective way for Product and R&D teams to evaluate CGH as a display solution for AR devices. The proprietary design uses a low-cost Texas Instruments’ Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) to produce high-resolution holographic projections with VividQ’s novel software algorithms.

This new technology allows device manufacturers to test and evaluate VividQ’s innovations in CGH against their AR display specifications and image quality requirements. We are delighted to collaborate with device manufacturers from the US, Japan and China to integrate CGH into the next generation of AR devices soon to be available on the market.

The Alpha Optical Engine Demonstrator provides the best display performance specifications for holographic display yet:

The Alpha Optical Engine Demonstrator announcement is the first step toward the VividQ Alpha Program, which will provide access to our IP and the expertise necessary to develop market-ready high-end AR devices with CGH display systems.

“VividQ’s world-leading team of mathematicians, engineers, and software developers continue to push the technological envelope in AR display to match the requirements of the most demanding users of AR devices like gamers. As a result, the Alpha Optical Engine Demonstrator boasts the most advanced technology yet for three-dimensional holographic display for the AR market under development.”, Darran Milne, CEO of VividQ, shared.
