a holographic video; a device or system that displays or records holographic videos; cf. holovision n.
I was on a publicity tour for the book, fresh from a talk show over holovid. Oh, yes, I should mention holovid…. The cable people in conjunction with LaserScience, Ltd. of Great Britain combined holograms with 3-D projection techniques and came up with holovid, in which the viewer actually became a part of the show or studio audience.
He groped through the dusty clutter in the room and snapped on the holovid. A recording played, over and over, a man’s voice high-pitched and his face stretched out of shape: ‘—war declared. A courier from Ythri has delivered the news in Gray, that Terra has served notice of war.’
Together, the three come alive in the nighttime. No need to watch the HoloVid in the comer with its inevitable Pro-Sports. No need for a couch near the dancefloor to gander the latest Flop-Flip steps. Freed from the need for Biofeed, they.
Rickenharp’s holovid and the videos weren’t getting airplay.
When all was said and done, one got points by destroying one’s enemy, but made money by cooperating to make the best holovid possible.
Big Scaly settled back down and aimed some kind of handheld contraption that resembled a holovid camera at him.
I felt what must have been a pale echo of the sort of grief I’d once felt watching a holovid of a dear lost lover.
With the recent development of recording and imaging devices, and micron-thin wiring that we can insert directly into the cortical centers, we can capture and download a holovid of past life retrievals.
