Media Resources receives grant
Media Resources, a company based in Oakville, ON specializing in indoor and outdoor LED signage, large format printing and 3D installations, has received a grant of approximately $3 million from the National Research Council of Canada. The funding is intended to be used to develop the company's fine pixel pitch display technology. As a result, the company will hire an additional 12 scientists and engineers. The grant was awarded through the council's Industrial Research Assistance Program Large Value Contribution program. It also includes advisory services as well as research and development assistance.
"This grant will allow us to extend our current VisionIQ product line from traditional outdoor and indoor LED signage to the emerging market of leading-edge fine pixel LED displays," said Cheng Qian, chief product architect at Media Resources. "Our solution, once fully developed, will provide innovation, comprehensive redundancy, monitoring, robustness, superb image quality and longevity not currently available in the market today. Our goal is to have a next-generation indoor and outdoor fine pixel pitch product that is superior to all known competitors in North America."
