n technical terms, Voxon’s technology is a volumetric display. At its core is an ultra high-speed digital light engine and a highly optimized volume rendering engine. This unique combination of hardware and software is capable of projecting over half a billion points of light every second into physical volumetric space.
Geometry that is being rendered is sliced up into hundreds of digital horizontal cross sections before being projected synchronously onto a specially designed high speed reciprocating screen. As the photons of light hit the screen, they are diffused and reform a physical cross sectional image at precisely the right place in physical space. Through persistence of vision, the human eye blends hundreds of layers together, and the result is a true three-dimensional (3D) volumetric holographic representation of data that can be viewed in the same way as one would view a real object, from any angle, and without special effects, goggles or glasses.

In the video they say it is a fast rotating projector. If you watch the video you posted they explain it around minute 1:30.

the projector is what sends the light, but the screen?
And for it to be moving so fast, but not with enough force to hurt someone touching it, as was also mentioned?
A drive system for a projection screen in a swept surface volumetric three dimensional (3D) display is disclosed where the drive system causes the projection screen to reciprocate through an excursion distance at a screen reciprocating frequency relative to a projection system. The drive system includes an actuator arrangement for generating an input reciprocating force substantially at the screen reciprocating frequency through an input excursion distance and a support structure for the projection screen. The support structure further includes a resonant mounting arrangement for the projection screen where the resonant mounting arrangement is operably connected to the actuator arrangement and configured to allow the projection screen to reciprocate through the excursion distance. In addition, the resonant mounting arrangement is configured to have a resonant frequency substantially equivalent to the screen reciprocating frequency on actuation of the actuator arrangement. A gaming console incorporating a swept surface volumetric 3D display based on the drive system is also disclosed.
...the fabric may be air permeable and/or perforated to reduce air resistance that arises as a result of the moving projection screen
