Lexington, Ky., July 25, 2007 — Mersive Technologies, an emerging display technology company that is redefining the ease with which ultra resolution, multi-projector displays can be designed, configured and maintained, today announced the creation of the Mersive Academic Partner Program [MAPP]. The new program is designed to provide select colleges, universities and research facilities with cost-effective technology that can be used for creating ultra definition displays.
As part of the program, Mersive will offer its Sol? Server technology and Sol Realtime API, which enable users to produce multi-projector seamless displays of almost any size, shape, and resolution. These ultra definition displays are achieved by clustering an unlimited number of commercial off-the-shelf projectors. The Mersive Sol Server calibrates the projectors into a single, unified pixel palette. Sol Realtime API allows for 3D graphics application integration.
MAPP participants will be able to purchase the Mersive Sol Server and an unlimited number of per-channel software licenses at a greatly reduced fee.
"Mersive´s goal is to enable its academic partners to create unprecedented ultra definition displays for use in various fields of research and study," says Dr. Christopher Jaynes, Mersive CTO and former director of research at the University of Kentucky Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments. "By eliminating the per-channel license fees for MAPP participants, we are encouraging partners to dream big and build the next generation of multi-projector displays. All we ask in return is that participants share the knowledge with their colleagues and the rest of the world through the MAPP wiki website at mersive.com."
Mersive will be introducing the program at Siggraph, August 7 — 9, San Diego Convention Center. For academics interested in joining a special discussion on MAPP at the show, please contact Christopher Jaynes via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
