Pulse Evolution is an exciting company on the leading edge of the landscape of technological advancement. Its innovative focus is on creating extremely realistic holographic images, such that audiences can see these digital people perform and believe that they are witnessing the real thing. The company has been in existence for some time but just went onto the national stock exchange, a clear indication that it is doing well and will continue to progress.
Heading up Pulse Evolution is John Textor, who has made a name for himself as a part of various ventures, including Digital Domain. He had a hand in the making of several blockbusters that were noted for their impressive special effects. These included “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” “Flags of Our Fathers” and “TRON: Legacy.” The film “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” received special recognition because of the creation of a digital character that was indistinguishable from an actual actor. Textor also was behind the virtual appearance of Tupac Shakur at the Coachella music festival.
To date, the most impressive feat for Pulse Evolution has been its creation of a digital version of Michael Jackson that performed a full song at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. That performance mesmerized 11 million people watching in their homes on television, and even close friends and family members of Michael’s were astonished at how well Michael had been captured, from the contours of his face to his signature dance moves.
LinkedIn shows that Pulse Evolution is determined to move forward with more and more events featuring digital recreations of beloved performers. Executives hope to combine their digital prowess with the latest advances in artificial intelligence. While the company’s focus right now is on securing contracts with the estates of such icons as Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe for large events such as the ones featuring Jackson and Shakur, they are open to many more applications for their lifelike holographic creations. One day, individuals may even be able to custom order such creations. The future is bright and exciting, and Pulse Evolution is standing on the horizon, helping to usher it in with all its wondrous possibilities.
