Realview Innovations is the brainchild of Eamonn Ansbro and John Braithwaite, two highly creative optical engineers with a passion for 3D technology. Having collaborated on a variety of specialised projects in medical imaging and astronomy, they had seen for themselves the downsides of various approaches that used complex, expensive 3D technologies. Determined to find a way to enhance the viewing experience without resorting to goggles, complicated software or expensive hardware, Eamonn and John focused on how they could transform the screen in ways that were simple to use, affordable, and comfortable for the sensory system to interpret.
Having achieved significant technological breakthroughs, Eamonn and John, together with R&D expert Catherine Overhauser, created RealView Innovations Ltd. in 2001. Based in Ireland, the company now specialises in a variety of optical screen technologies and is run as a global commercial enterprise. Specialist business development professionals, sales and marketing experts and automated production staff have since joined the original team, making RealView, one of Ireland’s leading start-up operations.
RealView’s British manufacturing partner is Panel Graphic Ltd. which has state-of-the-art robotic assembly facilities in Norfolk, England.
