World Wide Largest Computer Generated Photoresist made by DHL

July 2012

In July we invested in a new high power laser and a high resolution Lcos beamer. With this laser we were able to produce the worlds largest 3D computer generated "full color" hologram of 30 x 30cm (12 x 12�) on photoresist. The quality of the holographic image was improved by the in house build projector with the new high resolution Lcos-panel.

New Large Holographic Table

April 2008

We just installed a large newport table measuring 600cm x 150cm x 96cm. This table will expand our capabilities in large format hologram production.

New Building

October 2007

A new building of 100m2 was added to the main building. The new building will be used for R&D into new holographic systems.

Digital Full Color holoprinter: More Info?

High Efficiency Digital holoprinter now available!

Dutch Holographic Laboratory released the Digital Full Color holoprinter in 1997. This printer is an add on to your normal Holographic setup for 2D/3D graphics art. It allows you to make fully automated digital 3D computer generated holograms and multiple photo generated holograms. It also allows fully automated 2D/3D recording (without the intermediate step of using litho's) of holograms. The 1997 release could only print holograms upto 20x25 cm (8x10 inch). At the end of 1999 holograms upto 30x40 cm (12x16 inch) could be printed, due to a new Slitholder. The latest development in the Digital holoprinter is the use of a Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) in stead of a LCD screen for recording the holograms. This brings within reach the possibility to produce larger holograms with higher contrast. And the use of a DMD may lead to the use of new types of Holographic material. The new Digital holoprinter can also be used for reflection hologram Mastering... You'll find more details about the Digital Full Color holoprinter, the renewed slitholder and the DMD at the holoprinter Page. Click at the holoprinters TAB or the image of the holoprinter Kit...
