Your 2D flat panel monitor does not show depth. But with a holographic display you can see one or more views on the same sceen, which changes as you change your postion!
The holograph tricks your eyes and brain enough to make the image or video on the screen display look and feel natural, as if it were real!
Clients have determined that the following ITO Substrates work great for researching process and prototype development of Holographic Displays.

50mm 12-15 ohm-cm Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coated boro-aluminosilicate glass50mm dia. x 0.5mmNon-alkaline TFT grade
The video you see of a spacecraft flying through an alien atmosphere shows how the perspective changes while moving through a light field. Two displays are used to compare the conventional 2D display and holographic light field display.
Science fiction has pushed the imagination of holograms beyond the boundaries of what is possible with current physics.Avalon Holographics
Unfortunately, you can’t get light to simply change direction at a point in space, just because you want it to. Therefore, light must either come from a light source, or interact with a physical surface to change its direction, colour, or intensity. The only known way to make light appear in front of you out of thin air is by focusing lasers to generate a plasma event, which is essentially setting the air on fire. Because of this, the holograms in movies that appear out of nowhere are impractical and dangerous - if you want to do that, prepare to be fried!
