Open-source parallel computing software for high-speed


digital holography

Our Service
Providing digital holography support on a global scale is our core value proposition.
Open source software

We build and maintain reliable, versatile and powerful digital hologram software : including holovibes for real-time, low latency and high throughput image rendering and holowaves for streamlined hologram image rendering with MathWorks Matlab. We share our expertise in digital holography and train programmers in parallel computing to support the development of robust open source imaging software for demanding applications. Check our GitHub!

Applications : Optical devices

The digital holography foundation, through its collaborative and open source software platform, supports individuals, laboratories and companies by offering them concrete means to carry out computational optical imaging. The primary use case for our high bitrate software is laser Doppler holography. Optical tomography, microscopy, and vibrometry are also supported. Join our Discord and tell us about your project.


We train student programmers in Cpp/Cuda to fullfil a practical mission : Achieving image rendering through parallel computing on graphics processing units with a large variety of cameras, including high-speed CoaXPress streaming systems. We also train engineers and graduate students in device co-design and signal processing to improve robust image computation and wavefront analysis in Matlab, Python and Java. We offer internship positions all year round.
