With the acquisition, Dataton strengthens both R&D and project management teams in the industry-key sectors of virtual reality, simulation software and film production.

“The team at IXEL has proven expertise of software development and content production for fulldome and immersive 3D environments, both of which are already important application areas for our Watchout multi-display software and associated products,” said Lars Sandlund, COO at Dataton.

IXEL's Miroslav Andel - who has been appointed chief software developer at Dataton - addeed: “There is enormous development potential in the kind of large-scale visual and immersive solutions that both Dataton and IXEL provide. We're all looking forward to tapping into that potential as we continue to develop outstanding products for the AV industry.”
