Jaunt XR - Teleporter, Simon Venshtain, Director of Research

Simon graduated from U of I in 2011 with a masters in computer engineering. After a couple of years in Qualcomm, he joined Personify which is led by his adviser, Sanjay Patel.

At Personify, he worked on multiple projects involving RGBD cameras, and the last 3 years he spent working on Teleporter. Teleporter is a real time volumetric capture and streaming solution that leverages state of the art research in non-rigid deformation. In August 2018, the Teleporter tech and team was acquired by Jaunt.

Jaunt XR is one of the first big VR companies, initially founded with the idea of being the Netflix of 360 video. They recently pivoted to be AR focused, specifically, democratizing the technology to enable partners to capture and distribute volumetric content.

Simon will give a demonstration of the Teleporter technology, by live streaming a volumetric capture of a Jaunt XR colleague into the Meetup.

Hope to see you there,
Patrick, Ron, and the AWE Nite Team
