VSS thanks our 2020 sponsors for their generous support.

Elsevier

Elsevier is a global information analytics business that helps institutions and professionals advance healthcare, open science and improve performance for the benefit of humanity.

We help researchers make new discoveries, collaborate with their colleagues, and give them the knowledge they need to find funding. We help governments and universities evaluate and improve their research strategies. We help doctors save lives, providing insight for physicians to find the right clinical answers, and we support nurses and other healthcare professionals throughout their careers. Our goal is to expand the boundaries of knowledge for the benefit of humanity.

National Eye Institute

The National Eye Institute (NEI) conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight, and the special health problems of individuals who are visually impaired or blind. Vision research is supported by the NEI through research grants and training awards made to scientists at more than 250 medical centers, hospitals, universities, and other institutions across the country and around the world. The NEI also conducts laboratory and patient-oriented research at its own facilities located on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

VPixx Technologies

VPixx Technologies welcomes the vision community to VSS 2020, and is excited to demonstrate our TRACKPixx 2kHz binocular eye tracker, alongside the PROPixx DLP LED video projector, now supporting refresh rates up to 1440Hz. The PROPixx has been designed specifically for the generation of precise high refresh rate stimuli for gaze-contingent, stereoscopic, and other dynamic applications. The PROPixx is the world’s most flexible display for vision research, featuring resolutions up to 1920×1080, and a perfectly linear gamma. The solid-state LED light engine has 30x the lifetime of halogen projectors, a wider color gamut, and zero image ghosting for stereo vision applications. Our high-speed circular polarizer can project 480Hz stereoscopic stimuli for passive polarizing glasses into MRI and MEG environments. Come and see the SHIELDPixx Faraday cage for installing the PROPixx inside an MRI/MEG room. The PROPixx and TRACKPixx eye tracker include an embedded data acquisition system, permitting microsecond synchronization between visual stimulation, eye tracking, and other types of I/O including EEG, TMS, audio stimulation, button box input, TTL trigger output, analog acquisition, and more!
