Based in Belfast, a startup has secured major partnership with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in Hague and Scottish government for its virtual reality technology, which is designed to support victims and witnesses in court settings.
Immersonal, the start-up in question, has developed a simplified and affordable method for businesses and organisations to create their own virtual reality experiences and training simulations.
Founded in 2021 by David Trainor and Tom Houston, Immersonal spent two years developing the software for its Immersonal360 platform.
The company has already signed a contract worth £500,000 with the Scottish government and another with the International Criminal Court in The Hague. These contracts are designed to help simplify court processes for victims of crime.
According to Immersonal’s CEO, Tom Houston, the platform is a “game-changer”.
“It is giving lay people – not software developers – the chance to create virtual reality experiences.”
“We have been working with Victim Support Scotland and CivTech creating prototypes, and testing for the past six months,” said Mr Houston.
