LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Hawkeye's (OTCQB: HWKE) Radiant Images has been named as an honoree of the prestigious Lumiere Award by the Advanced Imaging Society (AIS) held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills on October 28, 2019, for their AXA Volumetric Stage and its development of holographic video technology.
"We are thrilled to be recognized amongst industry leaders such as Walt Disney Studios, Apple, IBM, Dolby, DreamWorks, Unity Technologies, LG Electronics, Pixelworks, Epic Games, Microsoft, Sony Pictures, Samsung and NVIDIA who are consistently pushing the boundaries of the human experience," said Michael Mansouri, co-founder of Radiant Images. "Our AXA Volumetric Light Field stages are an important part of all forms of holographic capture for the current and upcoming smart displays and spatial computers. What was previously available for a glimpse only in science fiction movies and futuristic predictions are now a reality with Radiants' AXA Volumetric Light Field stages."
With the AXA Stage, Radiant created the world's most accurate and adaptive volumetric and light field stage. The system supports 100+ cameras with the ability to add additional camera density anywhere inside the sphere. AXA's highly accurate camera positioning is the key to automation and algorithms for all volumetric and light field capture, placing the system squarely on the cutting edge of this technology.
Radiant is at the forefront of precision imaging, optics, machine learning, and AI to create volumetric videos. Immediately gaining traction with its holographic technology, Sony Pictures recently purchased Radiants' AXA Volumetric Stages for its next-generation movie studios.
Radiant Images is currently working with their partners to provide elements for the dawn of realistic mixed reality applications, be it via 5G teleconference, a distance learning class, or a volumetric movie or TV broadcast.
With over 1 billion augmented reality-enabled devices in the market, virtual reality and augmented reality applications are gaining in importance in several industries, such as entertainment, sports, education and training, automotive/aerospace, architecture, and mechanical engineering. Whether it's with simulations of workflows in virtual reality or whether reality is enhanced with content in augmented reality – the benefits of using VR & AR have long become obvious. Instructions can be absorbed simply and quickly, and workflows can be explained and illustrated step by step because presentation components can be experienced instead of just viewed, complex ideas can now be exchanged in a free form and intuitively.
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.
