Earlier this year, The Looking Glass Factor introduced an all-in-one 3D visualization workstation for enterprise customers. Now, the company has released a larger immersive display that can display deep holographic information in feet. It is reported that the core of the new 32-inch s 7650 x 4320 resolution display is the 45-element light field technology of the Looking Glass Factory, which is described as “a true holographic window to another world that can be experienced by a team of up to ten people”.

The company says the Looking Glass 8K is designed for map-drawing, medical imaging, and entertainment applications. With a combination of hardware and software, it supports 33.2 megapixels at a 60Hz refresh rate.
Users can enjoy a true full-color stereoscopic 3D scene without wearing a virtual (VR) or augmented reality (AR) headset.
Ge Healthcare R. Scott Rader says that both the hospital and the patients in its care can learn about the information available for x-ray/CT/MRI/ultrasound scans.
Medical teams often need to deal with 3D anatomy and pathology analysis presented on 2D screens, but Looking Glass wants to provide a more exciting way to present and transform information to clinical care teams, researchers, patients, and more.
The Looking Glass 8K device is understood to have made its debut at this week’s Digital Content Expo in Japan, while the company is pushing demo models to Brooklyn, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Tokyo.
Looking Glass Factory says it has sold thousands of development kits in the past year, and advanced beta testing of the Looking Glass 8K model has been sold out. New orders are now open for booking and are expected to be available for delivery in the spring of 2020, with prices and other details available directly to the company.
