Vision Engineering opens West Coast tech and training center

March 10, 2020 - Vision Engineering, U.K. and U.S. designers and manufacturers of high-quality digital and optical visualization systems, opened a new technology collaboration and training facility in Irvine, California, just south of Los Angeles.

The new Tech Center enables Vision Engineering to bring  leading edge technologies into the hands of potential tech collaborators and customers, and will also serve as a venue to support training and demonstration events, online and offline.

The new facility will function as a collaboration hub with business partners from a range of high tech organizations to develop leading edge products and sub-assemblies to serve new digital and optical system needs, for a range of emerging technology markets.

The premises will provide 2,700 sq. ft. of collaborative and demonstration space, fully equipped with Vision Engineering’s latest immersive, optical and digital products and components, including the newly launched Deep Reality Viewer (DRV) microscope, an ultrahigh-definition glasses-free 3D stereo viewing system. The Tech Center has full 5G to allow Vision Engineering to show the existing real time intersite communication capabilities, which are integral to its products.

Mark Curtis, managing director of Vision Engineering, comments: “We are excited to introduce this new  collaborative tech space which will place us at the center of one of the most exciting technology hubs in the world. It will allow us to work closer with complementary companies to develop and expand new digital and optical technologies. As a Company, we are very active in the developing immersive VR/AR/MR space, specializing in projecting real-time information to Industry 4.0, IoT, 5G and are very keen to partner with like-minded tech companies on the vibrant West Coast.”

Irvine is known as a technology hub and the facility is located in an area where long-standing technology companies and an abundant number of startup companies within the immersive, geospatial, defense, medical device, electronics, aerospace and optics industries are situated. In addition to supporting local businesses, the facility will also support companies located in throughout Southern California, Northern California, Northern Mexico and neighboring states. Irvine is ideally located, being in close proximity to three airports and easily accessible from a number of major freeways.

Richard Nagel, vice president sales and marketing for Vision Engineering, comments: “Our collaborative partners and customers need access to the latest technology and to our research capabilities. Therefore, in addition to a showroom for our complete range of products, we will provide customer and channel partner training, as well as presenting educational sessions about hot tech topics.”

The center opening coincides with the rising success of the vibrant technology landscape in the U.S., which has had a profoundly positive impact on the U.S. economy in recent years. The tech sector generated an estimated $1.8 trillion last year, and Silicon Valley on the West Coast remains the most profitable technology hub in the world.
