PxE Holographic Imaging Raises $5.4M in Seed Funding


PxE Holographic Imaging, a Yavne, Israel-based company developing holographic imaging cameras, came out of stealth with $5.4M in Seed funding.

The round was led by KDT – Koch Disruptive Technologies, the technology investment arm of Koch Industries, and M Ventures, the venture investment arm of the science and technology company Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

The company intends to use the funds to continue development in close alignment with their customers with the goal of obtaining first qualifications for mass market products in 2025.

Established in 2019 by seasoned tech innovator CEO Yoav Berlatzky and CTO Yanir Hainick, a graduate from the prestigious “Talpiot” program, PxE develops holographic imaging technology that makes it possible to acquire a high-resolution color image combined with an infrared image and a pixel-level depth map in a single snapshot that has 3x the light sensitivity of a standard camera. PxE’s passive, white-light holography approach delivers highly accurate depth data at distances ranging from µm to hundreds of meters. The camera is based on a single, standard CMOS image sensor combined with a layer of holographic optics. The captured holograms are decoded in real time by PxE’s proprietary, fully deterministic algorithm that has a computational footprint similar to a standard camera ISP. 

The broad applicability of PxE’s technology is reflected by the company’s wide variety of pilot customers that include leading companies in the fields of consumer electronics, wearables, as well aerospace and semiconductors.
