Digital Projection Inc. (DPI) has appointed Phil Laney as director of simulation and visualization. Laney brings more than 13 years of experience selling display products and integrated display solutions for flight simulation, maritime simulation, fire arms simulation, air traffic control simulation, driving simulation, and planetarium applications.
In addition to his career configuring the highest performance display systems for these applications, Laney has an additional seven years of IT support-related experience. Laney already has begun working directly within the visualization and simulation market on behalf of DPI.
Having previously served as market development manager for one of the AV industry’s largest specialty display companies, Laney fills a long-anticipated role at DPI.
Digital Projection has invested more than two years developing new products and new capabilities to deliver solutions specifically for the visualization and simulation markets.
Some of these products and solutions, such as DPI’s line of TITAN and LIGHTNING 3D projection systems, are already available, while many more will be announced and will begin shipping later in 2010. Laney will lend his insight to the further development of these channel-specific display solutions, as well as manage and support DPI’s Simulation and Visualization channels.
“I am pleased to welcome Phil as our director of simulation and visualization,” DPI president Mike Levi commented. “Phil has been involved in the precision display industry for more than 14 years, with a specific focus on the simulation and visualization markets. He is acutely familiar with the highest performance projection technologies, as well as the wide array of components that go into creating superior display solutions for these fascinating applications. We have no doubt that he will be a great asset to both the company and our customers.”
Laney remarked, “My former display system integration sales experience will surely enhance the multi-channel display products Digital Projection provides to system integrators in the simulation and visualization marketplace. I am looking forward to presenting DPI’s current products, as well as the new products that will soon emerge from our roadmap.”
