Avalon Holographics has developed the world’s first "true 3D" commercial holographic displays for the defence and aerospace sector. The displays revolutionize the way users view and interact in 3D with complex multi-dimensional information like battlespace data, ISR data from cameras and sensors, output from data fusion applications, 3D design environments and simulation tools such as Unreal Engine.  The displays are an effective tool for visualizing 3D and multi-dimensional images, animations and video with depth and spatial characteristics.

Display users do not require head mounted equipment or glasses, and experience 3D without the nausea, fatigue and other physical effects of using current virtual reality display devices.  Avalon has prototype displays available for testing and purchase.

Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Avalon Holographics is a Canadian Small Medium Enterprise (SME) founded in 2015 by Wally Haas. Wally’s background in optics, photonics, networking and semiconductors was instrumental in developing the world’s first 40 Gigabit Optical Transport Network (OTN) software and later, the world’s first 100 Gigabit OTN software. That development led to the growth and eventual acquisition of his previous company, Avalon Microelectronics, by Altera (now Intel).
