President and CEO
T1V is Mike’s second venture, the first being Digital Optics Corporation (DOC), a company that Mike co-founded in 1991 while a professor of Electrical Engineering at UNC Charlotte. He served DOC as President from 1991-1998, and then as CTO from 1998 until its sale to Tessera in 2006. After a brief retirement, Mike got into the touchscreen game with T1Visions (now T1V), which started as a restaurant (T1 Tapas) and was used to test his theory that large-format interactive surfaces have the potential to bring people together for shared experiences in public settings. Part technologist, futurist, and foodie – Mike’s restaurant concept blossomed into the business that T1V is today – but has since expanded to include a variety of other markets.
Mike holds a MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at San Diego and a BSE from Duke University. He received the Distinguished Young Alumni Award from Duke University’s Engineering School in 2000 and is an inventor on more than 80 patents. In his spare time, Mike enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, running, and mastering his recipe for the perfect salsa.
A co-founder of T1V, Jim is responsible for identifying and developing new products. In his previous career, Jim was one of the first employees at Digital Optics Corporation, where he worked with Mike Feldman and stayed through the sale to Tessera. He has extensive experience in optics, electronics, computer programming, and networking, and was responsible for all IT programs at Digital Optics in the early stages of the company. While at Digital Optics, Jim identified several products and led early stage development that resulted in market dominance for DOC.
