A Multi-Talented Leader
Harry van der Veen, is the multi-award-winning CEO and co-founder of NUITEQ. He left friends and family behind and moved from his birth country Holland to the vast and changing landscapes of Northern Sweden to commit himself to the company. He was no stranger to the concept of exploring untouched territories. Passionate about his dream to change the way people interacted with technology, it was there where it all started.
Back in 2006, just before the launch of iPhone, this driven interaction design graduate was one of few people in the world who had engineered a multi-user multitouch display that could be used by multiple people simultaneously. This pioneering and groundbreaking achievement was the founding spark of NUITEQ.
Standing Out Amongst the Crowd and Leaving a Mark in the Education Landscape
NUITEQs’ world-class support in the multitouch industry is unprecedented as the company prides itself on giving its customers the best possible experience. Snowflake’s high performance and stability are the reasons why companies like Intel and Lenovo have chosen the product over other alternatives. The absolutely unique capability of the software, which no other company in the world offers as far as known, is that it allows users to interact with content simultaneously in different Zones on the touch screen. The software is also ahead when it comes to content creation on mobile devices combined with large format interactive displays and YouTube videos.
Nowadays online videos have a massive impact on education. Each day YouTube gets more than 500M views when it comes to educational content and it’s the third most popular reason why people visits the site. The only challenge is that the psychological research shows that retention is low when viewers just watch a video.
When Going Gets Tough, and The Tough Gets Going
NUITEQ is a true pioneer and the company was at the beginning of the creation of an entirely new industry. One of the most prevalent challenges that the organization has experienced was the fact that almost nobody knew that this technology was possible. So, NUITEQ literally built an industry from the ground up, educated and explained what benefits of the technology are, how it could be used, and why people should purchase it. Later on, after the launch of iPhone, it became significantly easier for NUTEQ to explain what the technology entails, but it still took a quite some time before the mainstream audience knew that this tech was possible even for large format displays.
Picture of the Future
At NUITEQ, its all about natural user interfaces, making systems natural, easy, and intuitive to interact with. Currently, the organization is completely focused on multi-touch interfaces. However, NUTEQ also has the required experience with gesture technology, touchless interaction, image recognition, voice recognition, AR, VR, and other exciting technologies that can interact with contents that are more intuitive and fun.
In future, one can expect the organization to develop more web and mobile technologies. Also, the company will be focusing more on creating the best possible creative activities that are linked to the best educational video content from YouTube.
