As a general rule, DeepFrame Basic Kit is designed to be built into custom installations, as the display can be ordered in the various components one by one. You can of course also purchase a complete display setup from us.
DeepFrame One is an all-in-one-box display solution with everything included in the flight case. Built for repeated use and fast assembling, it is curated by renowned Danish designer Steffen Schmelling as a free-standing display with a signature aesthetic look.
A DeepFrame display setup consists of the DeepFrame (optical lens) together with an HD or 4K screen. The content from your screen is reflected and magnified through the DeepFrame, thereby creating the mixed reality experience of your content appearing as a hologram when looking through the optical lens.
No, the Basic Kit allows you to buy the DeepFrame optical lens itself. You will, therefore, need an HD or 4K screen as well. We strongly recommend using a 65” curved 4K OLED screen, together with our OLED mount kit.
The curved OLED, mounted on our optional OLED mount kit, will curve the image to follow the curvature of the DeepFrame lens, thus straightening out the reflected image and minimizing any perceived distortions in the image contents. Further the OLED technology has an extremely good contrast and color performance, which helps and optimizes the 3D effect.
When using any flat display, you should know that the reflected virtual image will be curved and be distorted. On the centre part of the image, the distortion is not really noticeable, but the further to the side your contents are on the screen, the more they will seem distorted and skewed in perspective.
If you use an LCD screen, please make sure to try and minimize the so-called black level on the screen. This is the amount of light shining through the black parts of the image. A high black level will result in a grey haze being reflected by the
The hologram can appear in size to be anything from 50x50 cm (~20x20 in) up to 2x2 km (~1.5x1.5 mi)
DeepFrame allows you to create a hologram that seemingly appears to in reality from min. 3,5m distance, up to ca. 200m distance.
By adjusting the distance between your OLED screen and DeepFrame lens, you magnify the content and at the same time push the hologram further into the distance.
Currently, the DeepFrame lens only comes in one size, 1150x1150mm (~45x45 in)
No, not at the moment.
We strongly recommend using a 65” curved 4K OLED screen for the best image quality and holographic effect, together with our OLED mount kit.
The holographic content can be made in any 3D software on the market. Some of the preferred are Maya, 3DS Max, and Cinema 4D. You can also use actual filmed content or even live video from a camera. When filming, the camera needs to be at a height of 1450 mm (~57 in).
The hologram will shift or bend slightly if you move to the far left or right, thereby breaking the 60-degree viewing angle. However, using a curved OLED screen will minimize most of this.
To make your hologram appear larger or smaller, you simply adjust the distance between the screen and the DeepFrame optical lens back or forth.
Maximum 1400mm (~55 in) distance from
Minimum 800mm (~31.5 in) distance from
If you want to create a hologram that appears in the real world behind the DeepFrame optical lens (or a virtual overlay op top of something real) you will need a minimum of width 2m x length 5m (~6 x16 ft).
No, not yet.
Yes, it is possible to use DeepFrame in smaller areas by closing the backside of the optical lens with black fabric or a black box, making it impossible to see through the DeepFrame. By doing so, you essentially turn DeepFrame into a large VR display instead, maintaining the perception of endless 3D depth. As an example, you could then place DeepFrame against a wall and still show your content in a full-size 3D space.
You can build a closed housing with an anti-reflective glass in front, thus keeping all components out of reach.
First dust it off the optical lens without using any liquids, then clean using a soft cloth with a little water. The most sensitive part of the glass optic is the inside of the concave surface – the side that faces the screen.
Roughly 60 degrees.
With DeepFrame you can create a hologram of any size imaginable with one single display system. As an example, you can project a hologram up to 200 meters away, which is impossible to do with PG Foils.
Also, the brightness and resolution is far better in DeepFrame, allowing a truly impressive blend of virtual and real in most light conditions.
No, we do not recommend DeepFrame as a stage solution since the viewing angle is limited to 60 degrees.
You can create interactivity in a number of different ways. The simplest way is to connect a tablet via HDMI and use the Dreamoc Play app, which then allows you to flip through different holographic content being projected through DeepFrame.
You can also run any Unity developed content via a PC, which then allows you to play around and manipulate the content being projected through DeepFrame. For this you can connect any type of interface via HDMI or use a smartphone for control
We recommend encoding your movies using the HEVC (H265) codec for 4K resolution, and MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4 or H.264 codec for Full HD LED screen.
As a general rule, this display is designed to be built into custom installations, as each component can be ordered separately. You can of course also choose to purchase a complete DeepFrame setup.
Important: We recommend being 3 persons for this.
Important: Do not apply pressure to the bottom part of the OLED Screen, instead allow the bottom corner to bend in a different radius than the top, leaving a wider gap!
Important: Beware not to pull the cable towards you as this might damage the part where the cable connects to the screen.
In this example, we have connected the BrightSign media player with a wireless router to the HDMI input found on the OLED Screen’s
As another example for creating an interactive solution, you could connect a PC running Unity and play the software directly through DeepFrame.
It is not possible to create a settings file for the DeepFrame Basic Kit
