Here’s our story as taken from our profile at https://goo.gl/nCcUJ0
Background 7thSense was founded in 2004 with roots in the world of simulation. We’re a multi-award-winning specialist software and hardware company dedicated to high-end media serving and projection onto any surface, manufacturing products and managing all R&D at our head office in Sussex, UK with a further office in Michigan, USA. Our Delta Media Server range provides real-time uncompressed video serving, show creation and display matching for many markets. We’re chosen for our extreme performance solutions and outstanding service reputation.
Main products and services We are experts in media serving and supply our hardware and software to some of the world’s greatest digital display environments. Our Delta Media Server range represents our core offering and scales all the way from small form single HD playback to multi-output fully uncompressed video, high bit depth servers up to 8Kx4K 60fps output or 4K 240fps from a single 3U rack mounted server. Our systems are created for large-format displays when pixel-perfect resolution is needed.
Additional products Outside of media serving hardware and software, we offer a range of supporting products and services that assist with design and integration stages too. From content management, projector layout and design visualisation, Web-based show control, live capture and real-time recording to interactivity, projection mapping and show creation. Our technology can support any project no matter how innovative or challenging. Our products are designed to provide a seamless visitor experience while streamlining the installation and workflows behind the scenes.
USPs We build our products to order and to exact performance specification. Designed from the ground up to support the highest quality fully uncompressed playback, our solutions are scalable to meet just about any resolution, bit-depth and frame rate requirement and are suited to all needs from the simplest single-channel displays, multi-faceted multi projection systems to full multi-scene ‘dark rides’. Our solutions allow for real-time composition of media and real-time inputs from external sources for full control, flexibility and performance.
Key customers Our customers include system designers, integrators and end-users worldwide across a range of markets and applications including museums, science centres, theme parks, attractions, 3D theatres planetariums, live events, and projection mapped displays.
Where in the world? Our products are installed on six out of seven continents and we have a U.S. office for support of our North America customers with dedicated reseller partners in China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore to support projects in the ASEAN market.
Plans for 2017 Having recently upgraded our entire Delta Media Server range ready for next generation performance demands, we are now preparing for the 2017 launch of many new Delta features together with Stack 2 – the second generation of our advanced content management system. Our team will continue to grow both in the UK and USA to support our expanding customer base – we will also be increasing our presence across Europe with new reseller and distributor partners for this region in the pipeline.
2017 trade shows We’ll be attending many attractions and AV technology industry events in 2016 and 2017 including ISE, the TEA Summit, DEAL, the IAAPA Asian Attractions Expo, EAS, SATE and IAAPA.
