Sussex creative technology business 7thSense Design in Upper Beeding has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation ten years after being founded.
Known for some of the most advanced planetarium, 3D cinema, museum, theme park, projection mapping, and live event installations worldwide, the international market-leading team will be presented with the award by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the County in the coming weeks.
Recognising the best of British, the Queen’s Award is the highest accolade for UK businesses.
As providers of unique technology within the high-end Entertainment space, 7thSense is renowned for its Delta® Media Server product – a state-of-the-art video server and pixel management technology designed to take the highest quality films and content and plays back onto any giant screen or projected surface with results unlike any other system in the world.
Since 2004, 7thSense has established itself across many niche, high-value markets with its hardware and software products – all of which are invented and built at the Upper Beeding headquarters.
With a recently opened office in the USA, this latest award marks the business’ tenth anniversary.
Speaking about the achievement, Ian Macpherson, co-founder and managing director of 7thSense said: “We are honoured to have the Queen’s Award recognition as a creative export business in the south of England.
“In our decade-long journey we have achieved so much: building a reputation for performance, innovation and service and securing business with some of the biggest and best names in the industry.
“We deliver the most compelling experiences through giant screen video and digital interaction on an extreme level. Although we’re small as a team, we’ve always set our sights high and have some of the best.”
