Holo-Gauze Dazzles 204 Million Eurovision Song Contest Viewers

Holo-Gauze, the world-renowned 3D display solution for hologram effects, helped Sweden to deliver the biggest- and arguably best-ever Eurovision Song Contest, with dazzling holographic effects embellishing contest-favourites Australia’s entry during the semi-final and Grand Final. Holo-Gauze was utilised to display Hologram FX, complementing Australian singer and former X-Factor winner Dami Im’s incredible live performances.

Three Holo-Gauze solutions were deployed: two 3x5m screens behind Dami for accompanying visuals, including floating faces, and another 3x5m screen installed in front of her to create the Minority Report style interactive holographic effects. The first half of the performance was filmed directly through the 3x5m screen and Holo-Gauze remained 100% invisible to the cameras throughout the performance thanks to its tightly woven, near-transparent structure.

“I was thrilled to be asked to help out with what is sure to be seen as the most professional and most visually arresting Eurovision ever,”says Holo-Gauze inventor Stuart Warren-Hill. “Holo-Gauze is ideal for live events such as this, allowing live performers to be situated behind our near-invisible gauze while visually stunning holographic effects appear to float in front of them. Usually effects such as these are expensively added in post-production – ruling them out of live events. However Holo-Gauze makes the seemingly impossible possible.”

Launched to market in the autumn of 2014, Holo-Gauze immediately received global praise for enabling the creation of the world’s biggest, brightest, highest-resolution indoor hologram effect during superstar DJ Eric Prydz’s EPIC 3.0 show at Madison Square Garden. The performance utilised a 20x 5metre Holo-Gauze screen displaying huge hologram effects, including a giant helix, huge speaking head, and numerous rotating particle effects.

Earlier this year Holo-Gauze added theatre to the finale of Lady Gaga’s Bowie tribute performance at the Grammy’s. And last year, Holo-Gauze featured on both Channel 4’s Gadget Man and Channel 5’s Gadget Show, and produced visuals for the story of Einstein’s Theory of Relativity at May’s World Science Festival in NYC, and the Manchester International Festival run of Damon Albarn’s musical reworking of Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland,
