Emanuel Zueger, co-founder and Managing Director Finances & Development of Vioso.com, explains Vioso’s „smartprojecting“ software: „We use usual beamers to project on unusual – neither even nor white - surfaces like walls, curtains or tapestry. The projected image is then computated in real-time so that it will look like on a white canvas. It’s an optical trick we use.“ Emanuel points out: „The more mobile your projector is - like inside your mobile phone or your notebook - the more often you don’t have a white canvas to project on. Mini-projectors will especially profit from Vioso’s technology.“ Founded in June 2007, Vioso is one of the companies financed by Hasso Plattner Ventures. It has already won several awards - amongst others the "Innovationspreis 2008" and the „Deutscher Gründerpreis 2007". The company's projection algorhythm came directly from the research of the Bauhaus university of Weimar and has been patented by them. Emanuel remembers: „It was quite a challenge to get all the license conditions in order to use the intellectual property as the only company worldwide.“ He adds: „Even if the technology works, it’s still a long way to get it into a product that can be released to the public. It’s a mixture of financial and economic tasks as well as technology-oriented tasks that makes Vioso a quite challenging company with a very unique technology.“ Before giving an amazing little presentation of Vioso, Emanuel shares some entrepreneurial insights: „Everybody has to be willing to learn on the fly and quickly“, „Approach customers as soon as possible“ and „Often your first idea is not the right one“ More videos related to Hasso Plattner Ventures can be found @ www.tiburon-tv.com.
