Real human holograms for augmented, virtual and mixed reality
About 8i
8i is a volumetric video technology company on a mission to enable people to experience human content and each other in the most realistic way through holograms. There is currently a lack of real human content in immersive computing, and we're solving that problem by providing the easiest way to create, distribute and experience human holograms that look real and feel as if they are in the same room.

Our proprietary technology transforms video from an array of cameras into a 3D hologram of a human that has true volume, and can be viewed from any angle, on any device in augmented, virtual or mixed reality. We provide developers and creators with tools to integrate these holograms and enable a broad range of immersive experiences and apps with real people.
Our Team
We bring deep expertise from a variety of backgrounds, across technology, science and media.
