ImmersiON Announces Strategic Fusion With VRelia

By Neil Schneider | ITA Press Releases

Partnership will enhance the Augmented/Virtual Reality experience

IRVINE, Calif. (July 9, 2014)— ImmersiON, a USA company of Manuel R. Gutierrez Novelo, announced today its strategic fusion with VRelia, a company owned by Jose Antonio Garcia Marin headquartered in Spain. Novelo, the founder of internationally awarded TDVision, has proven a leader in the design and development of 3D digital infrastructure and visualization systems. Now, this partnership fusions ImmersiON’s HMD/HUD technology roadmap with the Professional Head Mounted Display business unit of VRelia to provide the user with an unparalleled experience.

Kevin Williams, Chairman of International Immersion Industries and Founder of the DNA Association, comments, “This is ground breaking news. By bringing together the emerging virtual reality technology of ImmersiON, their expertise and a fresh innovative startup like VRelia, a significant step has been taken in developing virtual reality technology and a true immersion experience. The fusion of these two leading companies has created an operation with a strong track record of establishing innovative technology internationally.”

ImmersiON and VRelia will co-develop, enhance and distribute the ImmersiON-VRelia Head Mounted Display/Heads-Up Display (HMD/HUD) for virtual reality and augmented reality applications, features not offered by any other company. With a 120-degree field of view and dual full high-definition 2160×1920 resolution, the ImmersiON-VRelia HMD features previously unseen augmented reality and virtual reality features. They include superior resolution and optics, with a wider field of view than any other products on the market, such as ANTVR, Morpheus and Oculus.

ImmersiON-VRelia personal display completes a virtual ecosystem that includes the AlterSpace AVR, an augmented and virtual- reality environment for interactive media, which is powered by A.I.L.E.E.N.N.’s Artificial Intelligence Neural Network engine. Paired with the other offerings, the new device will deliver an unparalleled experience.

The product is branded as ImmersiON-VRelia HMD/HUD, and is now available for pre-order at ImmersiONhmd.com

“The fusion between ImmersiON and VRelia takes us a step closer to releasing the perfect head-mounted and heads-up device on the market. That, added to the AlterSpace ecosystem, combines virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence at its best, making the user experience a new kind of reality–a parallel universe, where the line between the real and the digital world is completely blurred,” said Manuel R. Gutierrez Novelo, architect of ImmersiON, AlterSpace, AILEENN and TDVision.

AlterSpace AVR applications span the gamut of technology. From education to medical to military training it provides a cutting edge training and learning environment. It also extends from those venues to include business meetings, social media and entertainment. AlterSpace AVR, is powered by A.I.L.E.E.N.N., an Artificial intelligence Logical Electronic Emulation Neural Network. AILEENN simulates human brain functions, including research, reasoning, pattern analysis, prediction and big-data logical correlations. AlterSpace AVR, utilizing the 3-D, high definition virtual experience of the ImmersiON-VRelia, pairs AILEENN to offer a complete immersive experience.

“When I sampled VRelia’s early work, I knew our industry had great things in store. Now that Immersion has partnered with VRelia, the leverage is there to really take things up a level. The market is clearly growing in the right direction, and we look forward to more positive developments from our membership,” said Neil Schneider, Executive Director of The Immersive Technology Alliance.

“VRelia and ImmersiON have fusioned with one single objective: to create VR and AR for massive adoption, from the users, with the users and for the users. With that objective, we will create a platform for everyone, with the most advanced technology for Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence and years of experience in a portable system: The ImmersiON-VRelia HMD/HUD will be superior to anything you have seen before. This vision has united our companies and, working together, we will create a unique AVR ecosystem where every user will be able to contribute and share ideas, experiences and advancements to redefine the Virtual and Augmented Reality future,” said Vicente Diaz from VRelia.
