Evolution Optiks At a Glance

Light field technology is an emerging technology with immense potential to shape how we see and interact with the world. While there are numerous entities who have embarked on light field endeavours, Evolution Optiks has unique advantages that set it apart in the competitive landscape:

  • Positioned to target early adopters
  • Platform-as-a-Service
  • Customer-centric products
  • Subscription-based model
  • Clearly defined near-term commercial agenda
  • Exceptional team

First mover advantage

We recognized the immense opportunities involving light field technology early on, which gave us a years-long head start in research and development.

Platform-as-a-Service mindset

By opening up our cloud-based platform to the development community and allowing to develop, run, and manage applications within the Evolution Optiks Vision Ecosystem, we stay more open to innovation and are better able to keep pace with the rapidly evolving science of light field technology.

Customer-centric products and features

While we are scientists to the core, we know that a technology has to have widespread, real-world applications to be truly revolutionary. With vision correction for your devices at the centre of Evolution Optiks’ business model, our core offerings have the potential to make life easier for nearly four billion people.

Subscription-based model for pricing flexibility

By using a subscription-based model, we can reduce the financial barriers for businesses and organizations looking to implement device correction, multi-view displays and light field technology.

Clearly defined near-term commercial agenda

Our first mover advantage and head start in research and development has also given us the ability to focus on getting our finished products and services to market in the very near future.

Exceptional team and technological advantage

Our diverse, multi-disciplinary team of scientists, development specialists and industry experts pride themselves on their ability to be at the forefront of developments in their respective fields. This keeps our team firmly in place as leaders in light field technology.
