FoVI 3D technology lecture to explore light- field displays at Langford

A session on light-field display technology will be presented by Thomas Burnett, founder of FoVI 3D, an Austin-based computer hardware manufacturer, and visualization graduate students Christopher Portales and Rathinavel Sankaralingam 1-4 p.m. Thursday, January 24 in the Adams Presentation Space, Langford Architecture Center Building A Room 212 on the Texas A&M campus.

Admission is free for the Institute for Applied Creativity-hosted event, and no prior technical knowledge is necessary. Attendees are required to register at creativity.tamu.edu. Refreshments will be served.

The event will explore:

  • What are light-field displays and why are they important?
  • The application agnostic light-field display architecture being developed at FoVI3D.
  • General light-field display properties and characteristics such as field of view, directional resolution, and their effect on the 3D aerial image.
  • The computational challenge for generating high-fidelity light-fields.
  • A display agnostic ecosystem.

The presentation, which will cover the technology, its usage and a demonstration, will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. A question and answer session will follow until 4 p.m. For more information on FoVI 3D and the event’s planned topics, read more on the Institute for Applied Creativity’s page.
