        NEW HOLOGRAPHIC SCREEN

	In 1976 russian academician Viktor G. Komar invented
holographic screen, which gave possibility to make  projection of
holographic 3D movies, TV or consecutive series of holographic slides.


The screen can be used in
- holographic projection of real objects
- holographic cinema
- holographic TV

	This screen produces 3D images in space and allow to observe these
images without glasses and from various points of view (take a view,
look around the volumetric images), being in limits of the armchair,
located in limits of a visual zone. The holographic screen can form
such visual zones in various places and in different quantities, that
is defined by manufacturing conditions. Thanks to mirror optical
properties and ability to focus and duplicate light beams falling on
the screen, it forms 3D volumetric images similar to real objects.
These images have very high brightness, hundred times brighter than on
knows screens.

	 This screen have a great advantage in comparison with other known
systems, which demand use of glasses, not pleasant to many spectators
(like polarization systems) or have many technological difficulties
and other disadvantages (like raster systems).

	Since 1976 Russian authorities have no interest and financial
possibility to apply this invention in industry. Bad social standards
and instability in this country are threatening to bury this great
invention forever. If you are interested in it and have enough
production and financial means, please Email to
              andy at aha.ru
and I will connect you directly to mr. Komar.

        HISTORY OF THE INVENTION

	Viktor G. Komar for the first time in the world has carried out
shooting and projection of experimental holographic movie with 3D
monochrome (1975), and then colour image (1984). The practical
realization of this system is impossible in Russia, despite a
recognition of a priority and urgency of the work by experts in USA,
England, France, Germany, Russia and other countries. At presence of
investments creation of commercial holographic cinema can be carried
out.

	 In 1995 under a management of Viktor G. Komar there was developed an
original system for shooting and projection of static replaceable
holographic 3D images. Sequential display of a series of holographic
slides with colour 3D image can be observed by spectators without
special glasses and without restrictions in moving limits in an
armchair. This system was demonstrated with a great success on
exhibitions in Seoul (Korea) in 1995 and in Turin (Italy) in 1996.
Similar installations can be made by request.

	Now Viktor G. Komar develops a variety of TV systems for
reproduction of 3D colour images on the basis of application of
holographic screens. The work will be carried out in a rather
progressive and original direction with every prospect of success.

        PERSONALITY

	 Viktor G. Komar is academician of International Academy of
Information, doctor of sciences, professor, chief of Cine-holography
laboratory in Research Cine-Foto Institute (NIKFI), Moscow, Russia. He
is a trained expert in the field of cinema engineering, TV,
electronics, holography. He has published more than 160 works: books
and articles in technological magazines. Has about 40 inventions.
	 The basic direction of technological activity of Viktor G. Komar is
creation of cine and TV 3D imaging systems. During 22 years he
supervised an activity of Stereo Movie laboratory in NIKFI. This
laboratory created systems of stereoscopical cinema, which practically
applied in Russia and other countries.
