RED’s screen technology comes from an exclusive partnership with a startup called Leia Inc. (Yes, like the princess.) Leia describes itself as “the leading provider of lightfield holographic display solutions for mobile,” and was founded in 2014 as a spin-off from HP’s research labs.
Finally some light is shed on the mysterious display tech.
I have to admit, the video does little to sell me on it though. Obviously it’s impossible to truly convey the tech in a 2D video but without the software the hardware is virtually useless.
Hopefully I’m wrong, the tech is super cool and works amazingly well. Then maybe we’ll see it in the next generation of smartphones along with a bunch of new software that supports it.
