Jaunt, a Palo Alto, CA-based provider of a full-stack hardware and software solution for cinematic VR, raised $27.8m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Highland Capital Partners with participation from Google Ventures and existing investors Redpoint Ventures, British Sky Broadcasting (Sky), Peter Gotcher, and Blake Krikorian. As a part of the funding, Alex Taussig, Partner at Highland Capital, will join Jaunt’s board of directors.
The company, which has now raised more than $34m to date, intends to use the funds to scale technology.
Led by Jens Christensen, CEO, Jaunt is advancing a full-stack technology solution (the hardware, software, tools, and applications) which makes use of proprietary algorithms and computational photography software to enable the creation of seamless, omnidirectional 3D experiences.
