Since HDTVs became widely accessible to the masses, image quality has increased dramatically. Today, 8K is the latest in image definition, battling for centre-stage with 4K. However, the difference between the two in normal viewing conditions is arguably indistinguishable from each other by the human eye. Despite some companies currently developing even higher definition screens, there is little sign of TV and movie producers seeing any benefit in transitioning from 4K to 8K productions.

As a result, with regards to image quality, it appears we have reached the pinnacle of the viewing experience. So where do we go from here? Many Sci-Fi fans have dreamed of the day when “holodecks” and other forms of holographic imaging will be possible. Several companies are working on new display technologies that provide an immersive 3D experience, but these usually require the use of 3D glasses or cumbersome VR/AR headsets or goggles.

Leading the charge in revolutionising immersive entertainment experiences, LA-based, Liminal Space, Inc., has successfully concluded a $2.5 million SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity) funding round. This strategic funding aims to expedite technological advancements and facilitate the swift deployment and widespread adoption of Liminal Space’s spatial LED display system, garnering support from notable contributors in the industry.

Strategic investors and their enthusiasm

Liminal Space’s $2.5M SAFE round attracted investments from renowned entities, including Avex USA, Hibino Corporation (Japan), Kevin Bright (Executive Producer of the iconic series “FRIENDS”), Gihan Atapattu (former President Asia, Ball Corporation), Luminus Inc, San’an Optoelectronics (China), and others.

Nathan Huber, CEO and Co-founder of Liminal Space, expressed gratitude for the investment from distinguished partners, recognising their crucial role in fulfilling the company’s vision. “We are honoured and grateful to receive investment from our distinguished partners to fulfil our vision and to create a more immersive and connected world.” Said Huber,” This capital raise will allow us to position Liminal Space for the next stage of growth and innovation.”

Kevin Bright, emphasised how Liminal Space empowers creators to manifest any media vision to its highest potential, stating, “Liminal Space gives creators the ability to develop any media vision to its highest outcome.

Junichi Imokawa, Director and Managing Executive Officer of Hibino Corporation highlighted their excitement in investing and partnering with Liminal Space.
