Infosys Awarded Holographic Patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office

The patent titled "Displaying holographic three dimensional (3-D) images" describes the realization of 3-D communication using computer-generated holography to send/receive information and the associated optical elements required to make a lightweight handset.

Existing technologies use high-resolution LCD to give the illusion of 3-D while actually displaying a 2-D image. Three-dimensional imaging, which includes a representation of depth information along with amplitude information, is not being used in these cases. This patent addresses the issue of 3-D in mobile communication.
