“XPAND has always been at the forefront of immersive technologies, focusing on delivering the highest quality products for the best user experience,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND. “I am passionate about 3D, and I believe that technology has now evolved to a historical point where we can stop being a spectator and start becoming an actual 360-degree player. Our partnership with ImmersiON allows us to lead this experiential revolution. ImmersiON-VRelia’s IP, technology and team are a perfect match for XPAND’s continuous growth prospects.”
In addition to accelerating product development and guiding the market strategy of ImmersiON-VRelia innovative VR technology, XPAND will support the massive adoption of ImmersiON-VRelia products through its distribution channels for professional and entertainment applications.

Virtual reality has seen a surge in 2015 with most major movie studios and game developers creating top quality content for VR platforms. The revenue share for VR is estimated to be US $30 billion within the next five years (source Digi-Capital).
ImmersiON-VRelia has made an impressive showing in the past few months. The platform had a successful showing at NASA’s Ames Research Center in October 2014. It was nominated as the Best of CES 2015 by Gambit Magazine. Most recently, it was selected by VR-iPhone users as the best VR design.
“Now with this key partnership with XPAND, the leaders in stereoscopic 3D for professional and entertainment applications, we will set an unprecedented acceleration of both companies in the realm of VR,” says Manuel R. Gutierrez Novelo, CEO of ImmersiON-VRelia. “I’ve known Maria Costeira and XPAND for many years now since before they standardized protocols for 3D shutter glasses in the industry and before we standardized the 3D Blu-ray format at TDVision, the company who spun off ImmersiON-VRelia, and I couldn’t think of a better partner than them.”
