Growth Journey

Simul are a growing company based in the Baltic Triangle which is the Digital Hub of Liverpool, England. The area is home to many emerging tech and game companies. Simul has recently upgraded to a large office in the newly renovated Baltic Creative Digital House, which is also home to other companies from this sector.

Its team consists of C++ programmers, who work on the company's products and make changes to game engine code, to enhance how trueSKY features work. Other members of the team include website design & developers who look after the Simul website, which was custom built to make licensing and payments easy for its users. 

The NPIF funding will support the development of a new VR streaming technology, “SimulCaster”. SimulCaster enables cloud experiences for VR and AR. In SimulCaster, a patent-pending algorithm is used to distribute the application between client and server devices. The NPIF funding will allow Simul to build the product to a fully working and demonstrable prototype stage, with a view to taking the software to market in 2020.
