Stop the insanity: CNN’s ‘hologram’ was horrendous: I agree that the term “hologram” was totally mis-used here. I’ve heard from several sources that it was actually a tomogram.
First off, let me say that it wasn’t even real “hologram” technology, which annoys me from the start. Don’t say it’s a “hologram” technology unless it really is. If CNN was truly using a “hologram,” it would not have employed a green screen and overlay images. Instead, it would have captured scattered light and then reconstructed it back in the studio.
Oh, and it probably would have bankrupted CNN too.
Still, I think the technology was neat. It could be a way to get a bunch of people to look like they’re in the same room to the people at home, and there’s some value in that.
