Accuracy in the third dimension

The novel holographic stereogram portrait capture system developed by Spatial Imaging was recently used to great effect by company founder and holographic artist Rob Munday to create a holographic stereogram portrait of HM The Queen, commissioned by The Jersey Heritage Trust to commemorate the Island of Jersey's 800-year allegiance to the Crown. A holographic stereogram portrait is made from a sequence of up to 400 photographic images taken of the sitter from multiple angles of view using a specially designed moving camera. In the case of The Queen, Munday designed and built the VIP (Video Images with Parallax) system; an image capture device that translated the world's highest resolution digital camera along a two-meter rail. As the camera translated, a sequence of parallax images was grabbed. Having used Anorad's linear stages for other systems, Spatial asked Anorad to provide a two-metre linear motion rail that would make the creation of the Queen's portrait possible. Anorad delivered the rail, believed to be the longest commercially available linear motor positioning stage in the world, together with a high performance direct drive rotary stage.
