Jaunt TeleporterMixed reality solutions provider Jaunt has acquired Personify’s Teleporter line of business, including key staff, intellectual property, and pending patents.

Personify is an augmented and virtual reality company which was home to Teleporter, a volumetric streaming software system which captures, processes, and streams AR assets in real-time.

The acquisition of Teleporter aligns with the volumetric research and development initiatives recently announced for the Jaunt XR Platform.

“The addition of Personify’s Teleporter team and technology allows us to increase the speed and scope of our research and development as we move further into the extended reality arena with the Jaunt XR Platform at the core of our business,” said Arthur van Hoff, Jaunt CTO and Founder. “We’re honing in on fully immersive virtual, mixed, and augmented reality experiences, and are thrilled to advance those technologies with the help of our new Chicago-based team.”

Under the deal, seven Personify engineers will join Jaunt’s R&D team, while Personify CTO Simon Venshtain will become director of research in Personify’s Chicago office, which has now been taken over by Jaunt.
