THE RESPONSE from clsa
“The technology is still a work in progress but that what it provides is a completely new way to experience content, and as such should gain mainstream acceptance over time. This isn’t going to be instant, but VR will be “real” unlike 3D TV. Furthermore, with numerous competing technologies, value is less likely to accrue to the hardware makers, and instead this is going to be a content story.
The product demonstrations in the INITION demo studio both highlighted the potential as well as the headwinds and hurdles that need to be addressed in order to see the technology succeed. I thought the team were great and extremely open to holding any discussion which I know our clients appreciated. Clients especially enjoyed the access to the INITION experts throughout the evening.” – Mark Streeter & Janet Harbison, Asian Equity Sales at CLSA

the response from inition
“We have been speaking to CLSA for a number of months and from the outset it has been clear that they have a genuine interest in building up their knowledge around the potential value in technology both as an investment and as a means of arming one’s business for the future.
The open Q&A format gave the audience the chance to ask our team questions that they may not be able to get answers to elsewhere, as well as experiencing technologies that they may have read about, but never actually tried. We look forward to building our relationship with CLSA over the coming months.” – Jay Short, New Business & Sales Director at INITION
