Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you wanted to binge watch your favorite show on the TV, but your friend is busy slaying zombies online? And if you ever grew up with a sibling, the remote wars must have been a weekly routine for you.
Well, MirraViz wants to save you from this and other scenarios, where sharing a screen is a call for war. In case you don’t know, MirraViz is a Silicon Valley startup that specializes in display technologies. Now, the company has showcased a new product at the CES Show floor called MultiView Screen.
MultiView Screen is a projector background that lets you view content from two different sources at the same time on a single projector screen. Sounds like black magic? Well it isn’t. In fact the company has built the technology from the ground up, and it’s pretty interesting to see how it works.
Looking at the video, it is quite evident that the company has actually built the technology into the multilayer projector screen. The system involves two different Digital Light Projectors beaming two different images on the same screen simultaneously, from different angles. Essentially, the product takes advantage of how reflective surfaces handle incoming light sources.
When viewed from particular angles, you can get a clean view of one type of content, while shifting your perspective will reveal the second stream.
MirraViz’s projector can be quite helpful in multiple scenarios. For instance, you can play multiplayer co-op games without having to split the screen. Another use case is for home entertainment, where multiple users can enjoy their own media on a single display. Commercially speaking, it can be used to project multiple live events at a venue without leaving out any customer’s wishes.
In case you are interested, you can head over to the company’s website and pick up a multiview projector screen for $499. MirraViz is also selling a complete home entertainment system which includes both the projectors as well as the screen and is priced at $1,499.
