Pepper's Ghost: High-Definition Holographic Video

About pepper's ghost

Pepper’s Ghost is a high-definition holographic video technique that creates spectacular three-dimensional moving images within a live stage setting. This is achieved using a specially developed foil projection screen, which allows for an impressive visual effect that has captivated audiences for centuries.

Originally developed in the 19th century for theatrical performances, Pepper’s Ghost uses reflections to create the illusion of ghostly apparitions. This timeless technique has been adapted for the modern era, enabling dramatic, cutting-edge 21st-century video effects for live events, conferences, trade show presentations, retail displays, and large-scale digital signage.

With Pepper’s Ghost technology, actors and presenters can interact seamlessly with computer-generated imagery (CGI) and video. This interaction enables a dynamic and engaging experience where people can appear to present live alongside their alter egos or other virtual characters, enhancing the overall impact of the presentation.

There are several touch technologies to choose from including: resistive; surface capacitive; projected capacitive; infrared; surface acoustic wave (SAW); optical imaging; dispersive signal technology (DST); acoustic pulse recognition; LCD in-cell optical and force sensing, all designed to suit prevailing conditions. Centrepoint AV will of course advise and advocate the correct technology for the installation which will be established at the site survey stage.
