IMVERSE is a spin-off from EPFL developing software and providing services for photorealistic VR/MR content creation. Our real-time volumetric solutions reduce the time and money spent on production phases of VR experiences and Hollywood movies by a factor of 10.
This is only possible thanks to our proprietary voxel-based rendering and simulation graphics engine, providing an easy and fast process to transform a single 360° 2D picture, from any commercial camera, into a room-scale 3D environment, plus the capacity to render live volumetric holograms in mixed reality with real-time VFX.
