About Holography
History of Holography
 Holophile produces high quality custom-image holograms to help meet the corporate marketing objectives of our clients. We work closely with our clients to design and develop imagery that is memorable, with high visual impact. The applications range from holograms used to attract customers and prospect at trade shows to mass produced images included in publications and specialty advertising products. Clients served include:

American Gas Association (Knoxville World's Fair)
Holograms were used to depict a methane molecule and future uses of natural gas. The achromatic and rainbow holograms were produced by Stephen A. Benton, the inventor of white-light transmission holography. These holograms were the first to be sold for commercial application by the Polaroid Corporation.

The Coca-Cola Company (Centennial Celebration, Atlanta)
Ten bottles and an icy fountain glass of Coke were displayed at the Coca-Cola Centennial...but viewers couldn't take a sip. The bottles and glass were actually holographic images in a triptych featured at one of the largest private parties ever staged.

College Recruitment Program tour to U.S. Campuses

Two 13"x13" holograms depicting the earth in space are mounted overhead on two high-end Virtual Reality Theater systems with full custom 3D content. As viewers walk by, an IBM logo appears and floats eight inches in front of the holographic plates. The systems travel separately to career fairs at US colleges and universities, industry-related trade shows and various IBM sponsored events.

National Security Agency (NSA)
National Security Agency Operations Center (NSOC)

Visitors to the National Security Agency Operations Center (NSOC) at Fort Meade, MD are greeted by a 40" x 30" hologram depicting a EC-121 aircraft, projected into space 20 inches in front of the holographic film. 31 stars encircle the aircraft just aft of its wings. NSOC was formed from the need for a coordinated response to the downing of an American electronic surveillance aircraft by North Korea in 1969. The 31 stars symbolize the 31 American lives lost, whose names appear on an adjacent plaque.

Pfizer, Inc.
Corporate Headquarters

The Pfizer headquarters in New York City were recently renovated. Featured in the new motif are three employee award walls. Holophile worked with Holographics North to produce three 20" x 40" holograms of the Pfizer logo installed on three floors. The images are reconstructed with LED sources in order to maintain a deep blue. Floating 18" in front of the wall, the logo spins as viewers walk by.

Practice-wide Innovation Award

Holophile developed with PwC the "I-Award" to showcase PwC's most innovative and creative work and to acknowledge the important contributions of partners and staffs in 15 project teams worldwide. Two 3-dimensional images were created and combined as a 2-channel photopolymer hologram that was mounted on the Award and illuminated by its own light source.

Raytheon Canada, Ltd. (Paris Air Show) Amazed visitors lingered near the image of an airplane projected in front of the display at the Raytheon booth. The illusion was a holographic stereogram--a hologram made from 35mm motion picture footage--depicting an aircraft guided by Raytheon's radar RAMP tower landing on a 10,000 ft. runway.

The airfield stereogram, a meter square, was complemented by another 4'x3' hologram of a life-size air traffic controller seated at a Raytheon radar console.

Rheometrics, Inc.
National Plastics Exposition, Chicago

Samsung Electronics (Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas)
Uncanny, life-like holographic portraits of U.S. Olympic athletes highlighted a Samsung salute to the Summer Games at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Weizmann Institute of Science (Rehovot, Israel)
This Polaroid "Mirage" hologram was included in the Institute's fund-raising publication, "The Weizmann Institute of Science: Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow." This hologram is the largest commercial hologram produced by the Polaroid Corporation to date using their patented photo polymer process.
