VanGogh Imaging, Inc., a McLean, Va.-based software company that offers 3-D computer vision technology for high volume mobile applications, has raised $100k in funding from the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT)
The company intends to use the funding to further develop their software and expand their workforce.
Led by CEO Ken Lee, VanGogh provides software that allows mobile devices to scan real-world objects and scenes in order to render 3-D models for Augmented Reality (AR) applications.
The solution utilizes a consumer camera or projector to extract 3-D data by adding high-definition texture and combining multiple scans to identify the object of interest. Then, VanGogh’s proprietary compression technology condenses the resulting data file – regardless of bandwidth limitations – to be used by multiple mobile applications on smartphone and tablet devices.
The funding was provided by CIT GAP Funds.
