Mersive Technologies (Kentucky) Introduces M-Series, First Large Format, Beyond-HD Display that Delivers Simplified, Low Cost Collaborative Visualization (9/13/2010)

September 28, 2010

Mersive Technologies is a University of Kentucky spinoff that develops display management software allowing visual collaboration to go mainstream.

Mersive Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of beyond-HD display management solutions, today announced the M-Series, an 11-megapixel display that delivers a 157 inch diagonal image while using a footprint that is only 24 inches deep. The result is an image that is almost six times the resolution of HD in a turnkey solution that enables collaborative visualization for demanding applications including engineering design, business planning, command and control, teleconferencing, and scientific visualization. At less than two feet deep, the M-Series lowers the total cost of ownership by eliminating the need for room reconfiguration and specialized HVAC and building infrastructure. The M-Series can be maintained by IT or business staff which further reduces support cost and increases usability. The M-Series accomplishes this by utilizing Mersive’s SOL Harmony display management software engine that automatically aligns, color balances, and maintains image quality across multiple projectors throughout the life of the display.
