VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NexOptic Technology Corp. (“NexOptic” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE: NXO) (OTCQX: NXOPF) (FRANKFURT: E3O1) reports today that it is pursuing significant opportunities to accelerate its growth, some of which were generated at the 2019 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas earlier this month.
At CES, NexOptic held prearranged meetings with some of the world’s largest technology companies, where conversations are ongoing, and the Company received strong expressions of interest to distribute and market DoubleTake™ globally.
The awards, expressions of interest, and accolades from multiple media outlets, retailers, distributors, and technology companies were in part due to NexOptic showcasing the significant power of its DoubleTake lenses as well as the revolutionary capabilities of its artificial intelligence and smartphone lenses for photography at a private NexOptic viewing suite throughout the multi-day CES event.
NexOptic’s unique DoubleTake lens is a near diffraction-limited 95mm F1.8 (35mm equivalent of 530mm) lens consisting of plastic, glass, and mirrored elements in a novel telescope-like configuration. The Blade Optics™ module allows the longer focal length lens to be compressed into a much smaller volume, so a lightweight device can take exceptional long-range images.
DoubleTake will be featured at the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver, Colorado January 30-February 1. If you’d like to schedule a meeting to preview DoubleTake at the Outdoor Retailer Show, please contact Matt Fitzgerald at Elevator North, 781-740-4050 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. NexOptic will be exhibiting at booth 51060-UL.
The company is on track to sell DoubleTake to consumers in late 2019.
What separates DoubleTake from any other binocular product is its Blade Optics technology. NexOptic’s patented and patent-pending suite of optical technologies has put the power of a telescope in a rugged handheld device. By utilizing dual lenses, one wide-field and one narrow-field, DoubleTake makes finding, focusing, and zooming in on objects far quicker, easier, and more enjoyable than when using conventional products. It digitally supports 4K video, 12 MP photos, and audio with an SD card slot option. Users can also wirelessly share their media and/or display screen with smartphones.
DoubleTake recently made its debut at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas as well as the Seattle Boat Show.
NexOptic also reports that effective today, founding Director, G. Arnold Armstrong has retired at the age of 93 from its Board of Directors.
“The technology NexOptic is developing is very exciting, and I have full faith the team will accomplish its goals,” said Mr. Armstrong. “I’m proud to have been part of this remarkable venture at its earliest stages, and I’m looking forward to what comes next as the Company continues with its advancements.”
“On behalf of NexOptic’s Board of Directors, I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to Arnold,” said Paul McKenzie, NexOptic’s President and Chief Business Officer. “From the very beginning, Arnold saw the value and the potential of what NexOptic’s technologies could become. It’s been my great pleasure to have had the good fortune to work closely with Arnold.”
NexOptic also reports that it has granted an aggregate of 2,650,000 stock options to some of its Directors, Officers and Consultants having an exercise price of $0.65 and a term of five years.
