Introduction of BRELYON
BRELYON is a startup established in 2019 that develops next-generation immersive panoramic displays that do not require headsets (goggles). Founder from MIT Media Lab founded the company based on his own research results.
BRELYON’s display is currently attracting attention in the United States, including being selected as one of “The 100 greatest innovations of 2022″*1 by Popular Science magazine in November 2022. The primary way users receive visual information from their computer is through a PC monitor or VR headset. However, images on PC monitors are flat, and to secure a sufficient working area, multiple monitors and a large space are required. And while VR headsets provide ample working space and immersion, they are heavy, strain your eyes, and completely isolate you from your surroundings.
BRELYON realizes panoramic images with depth through its unique SLET technology (superconic light-field expansion technology) and depth modulation technology. This gives you the immersive experience of a VR headset, but with the speed and resolution of a desktop. The immersive display offers a wide viewing angle of 101 degrees and a screen size of 122 inches in one compact monitor. The product targets users who need multiple monitors and immersion, such as esports athletes, financial traders, and creators. In addition, BRELYON’s core technology, depth modulation technology, can be licensed to industries that require 3D and multifocal visualization, such as aviation, automotive, entertainment, and medical.
