The holographic disguise matrix, also known as the "shadow hologram" was a personal holographic projection device that allowed the user to disguise themselves as someone else.
The holographic disguise matrix used vocal emulators and other systems designed to both fool both observers and electronic sensors. It was created by a Snivvian technical expert and bounty hunter named Sinrich. These devices were subsequently used on a bounty hunting mission led by Cad Bane to kidnap the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, Sheev Palpatine. The disguises were also used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems after taking control of a Venator-class Star Destroyer to destroy the space station Valor.
A modified version of the disguise matrix, the holographic cloaking unit, allowed users to appear practically invisible, and was used by thieves attempting to make off with artifacts from the Imperial Museum on Coruscant.
