Musion Eyeliner

by Mick

Red or Black is a new 'quiz show' on UK TV - Ok, I reluctantly admit to watching this program on Sunday, but it became more interesting when I happened to notice that the stage set for Pixie Lott was using 3D holographic images produced using the Musion Eyeliner system.

Musion Eyeliner is a high definition holographic video projection system for producing 3D moving images within a live stage setting and can be used  for various live events, including audiovisual artistic performances, conference or trade show presentations, retail displays and large-scale digital signage.

The technology is based on techniques used by Professor John Henry Pepper  for a stage illusion more than 140 years ago to create Peppers Ghost. ( The old ideas are always the best. )'s_ghost

The system seems to be very effective, although it may be different when seen for real.

In the past, the system, has been used by the Black Eyed Peas at the NRJ Music Awards in 2011 where 2 of the performers are holographic. You can see a video of their performance on Vimeo.
