“It is a pleasure to go there and listen what people says, by looking around, on the net as well as on places where not only your colleagues are, then its time to plan.
After our last successfully released Venus 7″ High Brightness monitor at later August (2016), now we launch a new product that will cover a wider public.
We are so glad, only a few weeks has been passed since our first monitor, and we are on a second model that will be followed by a third (7″) within the same Loyal series. I'm just remembering way back when we started more than half a decade ago with software, then complemented to develop Camera Accessories, then continued the software with a powerful Denoiser, then from 2015 with NEXT 4K and from beginning this one with exclusive portable recorders-monitors-streamers and portable computers all in one, including the last customized for Hollywood RED Cameras which we are still developing, and now entering the display market, I'm really happy to manage this Team of professionals, just like from when we started, introducing high tech features and talented design, at those affordable prices that people are looking for”
