Korean-Based Company, Titan Platform Plans To Bring Virtual Reality To The Average U.S. Home (Tech Talk)

 

If you have read the latest headlines about tech, you know that technology hubs are preparing the world for a future in virtual reality (VR). While the VR boom seems so far away, a few foreign companies are working towards staking their claim in the U.S. market. One of our favorites so far is Titan Platform.

Korean hardware and content startup, Titan Platform has hired former Endemol Shine and Lionsgate executive Adrian Sexton as its first U.S. CEO to lead the company’s North American expansion. Sexton most recently served as the COO and Interim President of Endemol Shine Beyond US, where he launched the Icon digital network with YouTube star Michelle Phan. The latest release that is coming to North America is the home entertainment system, Clueworks.

Clueworks is renowned for its unique technology, expanding its business to B2G (business-to-government) products that are supplied to B2C (business-to-consume) products such as personal and home devices, B2B (business-to-business) shopping malls, hotels, schools, government offices and government.

At this year's SXSW, I had the opportunity to interact with the home entertainment system in person and was thoroughly impressed. The most noticeable aspect of Clueworks is its modern appearance. The white exterior and encased lighting make the product a statement piece and accent to home decor.  

The system features a streaming feature that will content consumers to original content and also has a virtual reality component that has not yet been seen in mainstream home entertainment systems. According to the CEO, it combines Internet of Things-like functionality with media streaming and artificial intelligence.
