TandemLaunch Introduces Reports on University Technology for Consumer Electronics Industry

Industry Reports Offer Consumer Electronics Companies Immediate Insight into Promising Early-Stage Innovations from Universities Worldwide
MONTREAL - Jan. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- MONTREAL, QC – January 7, 2014 – TandemLaunch Inc., an accelerator specializing in identifying promising early-stage consumer electronics technology at universities and other institutions around the world, today announced the addition of Industry Reports (http://research.tandemlaunch.com/) to its service offering. Industry reports offer insight into university tech opportunities from around the world, complete with key information for companies to make better, faster innovation decisions.

Finding industry data on niche and emerging technologies can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Companies often spend tens of thousands of dollars compiling this kind of information, often getting bogged down in irrelevant or unfeasible technology, before discovering the insights they are looking for. TandemLaunch’s industry analysts have streamlined this process, giving consumer electronics companies immediate access to relevant opportunities, at a fraction of the cost.

“University research offers many opportunities, but it is notoriously difficult to leverage,” said Helge Seetzen (http://tandemlaunch.com/#about), CEO of TandemLaunch. “Not only is it scattered across hundreds of university research facilities around the world, many of the technologies are not known to the general public, and very little external validation has occurred. University tech transfer professionals offer a valuable service, but they are often juggling multiple projects, and have only a limited understanding of the technology and its market potential. Moreover, the majority of the technology has very little relevance to the consumer electronics industry, let alone specific areas of focus within the industry.”

Every report includes research trends and a list of promising innovations, complete with summaries, technology differentiators, intellectual property status, and key researchers.

The first reports to be made available are in 3D Display and Emotion Recognition. Future topics will be determined on the basis of industry interest, market projections, and university output. TandemLaunch will also take advantage of its presence at CES International 2014 (http://www.cesweb.org/) to speak to consumer electronics professionals regarding topic preferences.
