Paper Abstract

We present details of a series of compact highly automated pulsed holographic camera systems that are designed for production runs of white-light-viewable reflection and rainbow holograms up to (and beyond) sizes of 110 x 150 cm. The series comprises a portable mastering camera called the GP-MINI, the studio cameras GP-2J and GP-5J, interferometric cameras GDP-8J and GDP-16J, professional copying machines such as the G3D and G3D-QF and the various HRIPTM digital mastering machines. All studio cameras work in rainbow and reflection copying modes as well as in mastering code. The copy mode can also be used to produce copy holograms from masters written using digital data. Every camera machine in the series is highly automated, providing such features as instant switch-over from copying to mastering modes and permitting digital electronic setting of all beam ratios. All digital mastering machines integrate seamlessly into conventional computer networks.
