  1. 1. REQUEST # 67215 Free-Space Holographic Display Technology RESPONSE DUE DATE: June 3, 2011 MANAGER: Kevin C. Stark, Ph.D. SOLUTION PROVIDER HELP DESK EMAIL: PHONE: +1-216-283-3901 Opportunity Contract research, proof of concept, joint development, (click buttons above) marketing, licensing Timeline Phase 1: Proof of concept within 3 months Phase 2: Product development and integration, engineering and prototyping; analysis, content development and market application; testing in 6-18 months Phase 3: Commercial development in 24 months Financials Phase 1/2: Up to 1,500,000 Euro for funded development Phase 3: Potential market opportunity over 5 million Euro/yearREQUEST FOR PROPOSAL DESCRIPTIONNineSigma, representing an Italian Company BACKGROUNDinvites proposals for development of free-space There has been significant recent development ofHolographic Display technologies. holographic technologies as an outgrowth of 3DNineSigma’s client is an innovative company in and computer interactive communication. In thethe Piedmont Region in Italy, and is a member of last decade, this has led to industrial andthe Virtual Reality Cluster. The goal of this RFP commercial development of a variety ofis to identify potential partners to seek significant “holographic environment simulators”, such asfunding for further development. holodecks, holographic projection screens for interactive display, as well as virtual reality andCharacterstics of a successful technology: augmented reality solutions  Generates and projects holographic images without a projection surface (i.e., New consumer applications already available on into free-space) the market require large equipment or surfaces  Creates both still and video images for projecting the imagines (“holographic”  Create images up to 2.5 meters in height cellphones, holo-videoconferences, interactive  Integrated with standard consumer gaming systems, etc.). electronic equipment (PC, video cameras, 3D scanners, etc.) The next challenge to overcome is eliminating  Full color implementation (RGB or four- the need to have a projection surface or large color modes) screen. Then, these next-generation “free-  Able to operate in a variety of settings space” holographic display technologies can be (such as low lighting or small spaces) integrated with stereoscopic image-recording  Low cost, portable, and easy to set up systems for a variety of applications.
