WHAT IS HOLO-GAUZE?
Holo-Gauze™ is the latest development in large-scale 3D hologram effects. A patent pending front projection screen that is highly transparent and highly reflective, Holo-Gauze is unique as it works with 3D polarised projection systems and is also widely used as a 2D hologram effect. The gauze screen can be set up in minutes and is extremely light weight and portable, so touring a hologram effect is now very simple and can be scaled to any size – only limited by projector distance. Developed by me, Stuart Warren-Hill, for my Holotronica 3D AV Album shows, Holo-Gauze is now being used for spectacular productions worldwide.
