Happy New Year !
What a year we've had!
2021 has been a challenging year for us all but here at Dimenco, a lot has happened within the past year which we have to be grateful for! From seeing the first consumer SR product come to life, to attending in-person events again we have had both a great and challenging year!
We have reminisced and recapped some of our favourite moments from this past year;
First Simulated Reality Consumer Product
2021 was the first year in which we saw our very own Simulated Reality technology implemented in a consumer product. This milestone was the product of a proud collaboration between Dimenco and Acer. This collaboration resulted in the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop by ACER which is due to be released to the consumer market in the upcoming months.
The New SR Pro Monitor
In addition to this exciting project we also create a new product of our own, the SR Pro Monitor. This 32" 8K SR Display technology combines advanced hardware and software to visualise any 3D and spatial form like never seen before. This new monitor will be exhibited as an Innovation Award Honouree product at CES 2022.
The SR App Store
The SR App Store was officially launched. The App Store is an exciting development for both Simulated Reality enthusiasts and SR app developers making it simple for users around the world to discover, download, share, and enjoy the world of Simulated Reality through a variety of fun and practical applications. To accompany the release of the SR App Store, the team at Dimenco also created our SR Developer Program where developers could forward their creations to be featured in the SR App Store.
2.5 million euros in Series A funding
Dimenco announced a 2.5 million euro Series A funding round led by KPN Ventures and the BOM. This investment of KPN Ventures and the BOM is enabling us at Dimenco to further scale our activities to fulfill the growing demand of ourcustomers and to further expand the simulated reality eco-system to become the spatial visualization technology standard in the market. With KPN Ventures now on board, and KPN as a leading Telco, it’s an additional acknowledgment of the value of SR and the growing need for wearable-free XR technology.
Attended In-Person Events
2021 brought with it the opportunity for us to take Simulated reality back to in person events. Some events which we had the opportunity to attend include Laval Virtual in France, AWE in California and Slush in Helsinki. Getting SR back on the road gave us the opportunity to expand our network of like-minded tech and XR enthusiasts as well as demonstrating the future of computer human interaction, that is SR, to a wider audience.
A Visit From Tweakers Aug 2021
In August the biggest technology website in the Netherlands, Tweakers paid a visit to our Veldhoven office to find out what Simulated Reality is all about. During their visit the Tweakers team tested the technology and spoke to a few members of our team where they learned all about the history of Dimenco, the origins of Simulated Reality and what the future looks like for Dimenco and SR. The video of their visit can be seen here.
CES 2022 Innovation Awards honoree.
While attending CES Unveiled in Amsterdam on October 14th, 2021, Dimenco was announced as a CES 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree for The SR Pro Display. The CES Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. The program recognizes honorees in a multitude of consumer technology product categories and distinguishes the highest rated in each so to be awarded this title was a huge milestone for Dimenco and Simulated Reality.
We are looking forward to adding to these memories in 2022 with our first stop being Las Vegas in early January for CES 2022. Hopefully this will be the first of many exciting events to occur in the next year and we hope you will join us on this journey!
