About Us

7thSense Design is a privately owned creative software and technology company with offices in the UK and USA, plus a network of international market resellers.

Established in 2004, we specialise in advanced Media Serving for markets such as Theme Parks, Planetaria, 3D Entertainment Theatres and Visitor Attractions.

With our in-house developed Delta™ Media Server solution, we’ve sold over 3000 servers worldwide to a variety of prestigious facilities including many of the big-name Theme Parks, famous Museums, Digital Planetariums, 3D Theatres and more.

We also have a big customer base in the Digital Signage and Live Events market.

Today, we build Delta Media Server and our expanding range of products and technologies from the Head Office in the South of England. Our offices in Orlando and Michigan ensure our customers in North and South America have quick response times when they need it.

Our customers choose us for our extreme performance solutions and reputation as outstanding service providers.


7thSense was founded by Adam Neale and Ian Macpherson to allow them to apply their 25+ years’ experience in the Simulation and Visualisation industries.

With backgrounds in electronics, software and system design, both founders had extensive experience in system product design, R&D, specification, integration and installation.

Today, our expanding team continues to have extensive experience working with many AV technologies including media serving, real-time distortion correction hardware, motion control, real-time graphics and modelling, and media integration (video wall systems).

7thSense has been recognised with a number of business, product, technology and product awards over the years.

Notably, in 2014 we were presented with the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation in a year which also marked our tenth anniversary. The Queen’s Award is the highest accolade for UK businesses.

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation category requires companies to demonstrate outstanding innovation and improvements in performance and commercial success continuously over the last five years.
