Scalable Display Technologies, a leading provider of software for multi-projector display systems, announced today that distinguished scientist Ramesh Raskar has joined its technical advisory board.html.html.

Raskar is head of the Camera Culture research group and co-director of the Center for Future Storytelling at the MIT Media Lab, which he joined in 2008 from Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories. Raskar’s research involves developing novel cameras with unusual optical elements, programmable illumination, digital wavelength control, and femtosecond analysis of light transport, as well as tools to decompose pixels into perceptually meaningful components. His research also involves creating a universal platform for the sharing and consumption of visual media.

Raskar holds a Ph.D from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he introduced "Shader Lamps," a novel method for seamlessly merging synthetic elements into the real world using projector-camera based spatial augmented reality. In 2004, Raskar received the TR100 Award from Technology Review, which recognizes top young innovators under the age of 35, and in 2003, the Global Indus Technovator Award, instituted at MIT to recognize the top 20 Indian technology innovators worldwide. In 2009, he was awarded a Sloan Research Fellowship. He holds 30 US patents and has received three Mitsubishi Electric Invention Awards.

“We are extremely pleased to have such a singular talent join our Technical Advisory Board,” said Andrew Jamison, CEO of Scalable Display Technologies. “Ramesh’s extraordinary vision, technical expertise, and intellectual capabilities will be a strong asset to our company as we continue to refine our technology and expand into new markets.”

“Scalable Display’s enabling technology has the potential to transform how users experience visual displays,” said Ramesh Raskar. “I’m excited to work with them to explore and develop the visualization opportunities made possible by their software.”
