Radiant Images’ patent covers volumetric holographic capture for current and upcoming smart displays and spatial computers
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2019 –Hawkeye’s (OTCQB: HWKE) Radiant Images, a Company under contract to be acquired by Hawkeye Technologies, Inc., today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Design Patent 860,296 covering immersive capture systems utilized for holographic imaging. This proprietary technology is applicable for rapid development in immersive technologies such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), X Reality (XR or Cross Reality) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The newly patented technology is the latest in a string of accomplishments and accolades for Radiant Images, including three industry awards in recent months for technical achievements in the field of immersive technology and artificial intelligence. Also, in early 2019, Radiant’s proprietary technology, utilized in its AXA Stage, was installed at Sony Pictures for its next-gen innovation movie studios.
“We have built a reputation as explorers and innovators in the area of capture technology, and our breakthrough achievements make us well positioned to continue to lead the way to the next level,” said Michael Mansouri, co-founder of Radiant Images. “The seemingly impossible in now achievable. It’s an exciting time.”
Radiant Images proprietary AXA Volumetric Capture Stage System is an accurate and adaptive volumetric and light field stage, utilizing highly accurate camera positioning for volumetric, light field, and AI software. The modular system supports 100+ cameras inside a sphere and captures from every possible viewpoint to create a more engaging and dynamic immersive experience for virtual reality, augmented reality, XR and all forms of immersive experiences and future communication devices.
The AXA’s camera positioning accuracy is the key to automation and algorithms for all volumetric and light field capture, placing the capturing system on the forward edge of this technology.
The patent is part of an intellectual property portfolio at Radiant Images that includes numerous other patent-pending applications that together are dramatically accelerating the next technology cycle for the entertainment industry and beyond.
Radiant is focused on applying its core technologies to help advance artificial intelligence, WAMI – Wide Area Motion Imaging, and automotive and manufacturing line scanning. Its systems providing live streaming and real-time image analysis of immersive 360-degree video can be applied to a variety of industries and use cases, from the battlefield to the factory floor.
As such, Radiant has developed new potential business verticals from its core technologies in other areas and industries, including automotive, manufacturing, military, law enforcement, art, sports, space and medicine, plus interactive signage and displays.
The next decade is poised to see major developments and advancements in artificial intelligence and immersive experiences. Companies and organizations across a range of industries will continue to look to Radiant to find solutions and opportunities to more fully harness this evolving technology.
