Real human holograms for augmented, virtual and mixed reality

Create, distribute and experience volumetric video of real people that look and feel as if they’re in the same room.

Our Core Process

A performance is captured with an array of cameras, looking inward. Today this takes place at 8i’s studio, but our vision is to make capture accessible to anyone, anywhere. The data is processed and converted into a single volumetric video asset called an HVR.

Distribution & Playback
Distribution & Playback

Using our proprietary compression algorithm, the HVR can be distributed to any device or platform, and play back at the highest and most efficient quality for that device.

Developer Tools & Apps
Developer Tools & Apps

Our SDK and plugins enable developers to easily integrate volumetric video into their AR and VR apps to engage their audience in the most immersive way. Holograms can also be delivered to audiences through a branded campaign on our mobile AR app, Holo.

Our SDK and plugins make it easy for developers to use holograms.
