The move will ‘eliminate the existing technological divide’ between the firms and create opportunity for mainstream adoption bringing 3D experiences to all platforms and devices. Dimenco, a spin-off from Philips, has focused on Windows-based laptops and monitors for professional use with Leia in the Android mobile and automotive markets. All Leia’s 3D products and services will be available across all devices.
“We are living in a 3D world, and it’s inevitable that our digital experiences will align with this reality. While VR/AR headsets have their place, the breadth of our technology allows any familiar personal device to offer a seamless, immersive 3D experience,” says David Fattal, CEO of Leia Inc. “Our customers wanted a unified solution across all devices – and this acquisition delivers exactly that.”
"We’re excited to be part of the Leia family and it delivers perfectly on our promise to provide immersive experiences accessible to anyone, anywhere on any device without the need for wearables, “says Maarten Tobias, CEO of Dimenco, who will join Leia as COO. “This joint entity is not only setting the industry standard, but it combines cutting edge display technology, an established high volume supply chain and a unique dynamic content ecosystem, both for consumers and professionals.”
