Video displays are windows to worlds real and imagined – they allow us to move beyond time, place and reality.
As displays get larger, higher resolution and with more realistic colors the impact is ever greater. A cruise liner recently featured displays simulating windows for cabins that did not have a window, these were fed from a high resolution camera providing a real-time view.
Augmented reality, the melding of a real-time view with computer generated overlays creates an enhanced reality on a display. This can add value or simply entertain.
Large displays can create an almost first hand involvement in events across the world though maybe most commonly it is an unparalleled view of a sport.
Volanti – displays that take you places.
