MONTREAL, Sept. 19, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - IRYStec Software Inc., a leader in perceptual display processing technology, announced today that it has successfully closed Series-A financing with investments from BDC Capital, Tandemlaunch and angel investors including the Purple Angels. Financing at this time will help support marketing and sales activities including, pursuing mobile device OEM customers to licence IRYStec's first Perceptual Display Platform (PDP) product.
"We are excited about the huge multi-market potential of IRYStec's innovative technology. Their Perceptual Display Platform technology is a game changer with solid benefits for consumers in terms of improved viewing experiences on all displays in many applications," said Larry Lam, Partner BDC Capital Venture Fund. "Our investment aims to bring IRYStec's first customers to production this year with its first software product release."
IRYStec's PDP technology viewing experience of all displays by instantly matching both the colour and contrast of the content to the ambient environment of the viewer. The platform will also personalize the viewing experience, making content more compelling, by adapting to each viewer's unique vision, including adjusting the colour and contrast of content for age.
"IRYStec's technology brings significant benefits to device OEMs and consumers by reducing harmful eye strain by reducing display brightness and power by as much as 75%, while increasing average device battery life. Consumers will be able to watch movies on mobile phones or tablets for twice as long while reducing eye strain and the negative health effects of long-term viewing," stated Simon Morris, CEO of IRYStec.
