In 2005, Project Economics AS was established as an independent company offering consulting, training courses, and research services concerning software project management and related areas. The methodology used by the company was, to a large extent, developed in the SE department at Simula. The company is led by Dr. Kjetil Moløkken-Østvold, who studied for his doctoral degree in this department. Simula sold its shares in 2008.
In 2004, the company Silent Wings AS was established to develop, market, and sell software for flight simulation. The primary application is to simulate physically correct flights of soaring planes. The core technology was developed prior to establishment of Simula by personnel who worked at Simula until 2007. Certain components of the Silent Wings technology are in use in the educational software developed by World Beside AS. Simula sold its shares in 2008.
Today, there are no cost-effective solutions for video streaming to large scale Internet audiences and communities which are also able to support the increasingly wide range of devices, networks, and resource fluctuations. The Lividi technology automatically adapts the video quality to device characteristics, varying network quality, as well as user preferences providing the best possible video quality given the current constraints.
