Our Story

Ceres Holographics specializes in the digital mastering and replication of holograms and holographic optical elements (HOEs).

We help customers design Holographic Transparent Display (TD) and Augmented Reality (AR) Head-Up Display (HUD) systems that use our custom designed and precision-engineered, thin-film holographic optical elements (HOEs).

Ceres Holographics was founded in 2009, in St. Andrews, Scotland.  We set out to revolutionize the design, origination and mastering of volume holograms using new holographic photopolymer materials that emerged from the data-storage industry.

“Digitally-Controlled Mastering Technology”

At the heart of our offering – and what makes Ceres stand apart from other companies in this space – is our digitally-controlled mastering technology, which has been in development for more than ten years. Now available to select customers and partners, we offer Ceres unique mastering capability, our deep working knowledge of Bayfol HX® photopolymer film and in-house expertise in photonics and light-guiding processes.
