I spent years in academic and research lab settings working on computer visualization and when I started Mersive to transform this work into commercial products military and training simulation was the best initial fit.  That said, I always had a vision of much broader applications for large format, incredibly high-resolution (well beyond HD) displays at a very low cost. Imagine a 12 million pixel wall in a children’s classroom being used to visualize the solar system. I’d love nothing better than to know these technologies could inspire the next Carl Sagan. Imagine pixel-rich environments in our public spaces that are shared and pervasive. How will this change the way we express ourselves and communicate with one another? I’m excited because in 2010 there was a notable shift in this direction by my company, Mersive.

Our significant progress to innovate a super high performance result at a price point that is a tenth of what was historically the case, intersected with a growing demand from broader commercial markets that rely heavily on advanced computer visualization, such as consumer packaged goods, oil and gas and product engineering, created a sea change of a year in my eyes.

It is very exciting to see our solutions gain adoption and market share outside our legacy market. This new year is going to be a big one for both Mersive and the industry.

The company issued a formal press release today regarding our growth, please see it for more details.

    Mersive technologies are making it easier for our academic customers to realise such visions. We have seen a shift in the market place not to be so fearful of managing large multichannel displays since we have been selling automatic calibration solutions, many schools are now looking at classrooms of the future, we have worked on such projects and displays are going to play a key part.
    Well done to Mersive on your excellent growth.
