Abstract: The Beauty of LightFields Lightfield displays are the next generation medium allowing the comfortable rendering of 3D depth, look-around and complex light effects such as sparkles or highlights. They allow immersive experiences where content comes to life in deep and beautiful ways. In this talk, I will review the DLB™ technology behind Leia’s switchable Lightfield display and present our content platform LeiaLoft™ — which supports a growing ecosystem of developers and content creators. I will also share some user insights a few months into the launch of the Hydrogen One smartphone and how the platform will benefits consumer and commercial partners alike in the near future.
