Leading Hologram System with Multiple Patents
VNTANA has created the world’s first scalable, affordable, and interactive hologram system. From fully-controllable life size avatars to simultaneous global performances by the world’s top artists, VNTANA’s technology creates the most engaging and realistic holographic experiences in the world.
Through the use of our patented hardware, we have been able to realize a 90% cost-reduction in an industry that has not seen significant cost-reduction in 25+ years. In addition to hardware, VNTANA has developed interactive software ranging from automated avatar control to real-time holographic capture.
VNTANA has worked with major brands including Microsoft, Kia and Nokia providing unique product launches with hologram performances by top artists like Nicky Romero and Paul Oakenfold. VNTANA’s other customers include Pepsi, the National Science Center in Seoul and advertising giant 72&Sunny.
Currently there are only two other major competitors in the space: Musion and Hologram USA. Both of these companies use the same cumbersome technology which is generally 5 to 10 times as expensive, a hardware profile that is 10 times larger and takes 1-3 days to setup compared to VNTANA’s 4 hour setup.
VNTANA has done over $450K in organic revenue over the past 10 months and currently has 3 issued patents and 19 patents pending. VNTANA is also a Microsoft Early Developer and part of the Microsoft Biz Spark Plus program.
Our roots are in brands and entertainment, but our future is in education, business communication and retail.
