    Wrong. Dumbledore (note the spelling) is not a hologram. Holograms have not reached that level of size or sophistication yet, and at that distance the 3-D effect of a hologram wouldn't likely even be noticeable.

    Be that as it may, I've read two different versions of how that image is achieved. One report was that it was a Pepper's Ghost, another said it was a projection on a scrim.

    I disagree with both. From the videos I've seen, it looks more like a large HDTV screen, just like the talking portraits. Set dressing hides the edges of the TV screen. Dumbledore appears solid, and had it been Pepper's Ghost or a projection on a scrim, he would appear ghostly and see-through.

    It's not a screen, it's musion. Same effect seen in Disaster. Basically an updated pepper's ghost.

    As for sugarcookie's post... no comment.

    What is musion, and how does it work? (I don't know Disaster - never seen that.)

    Several sources listed it as being "holographic", but it doesn't really fit the 3-dimensional definition of a hologram, with only a single image source reflected on a flat surface.

    Very convincing in the videos from the HP queue. They appeared to be solid.
