PRNewswire, CTech: Isreal-based MultiVu, developing 3D imaging solutions using a single sensor and deep learning derived algorithms, announces the completion of a $7M seed round led by OurCrowd, Cardumen Capital and Hong Kong based investment firm Junson Capital. MultiVu will use the funding to complete development of its first sensor product for 3D Face Authentication applications.

MultiVu's 3D image camera is based on a single sensor as opposed to existing solutions using two sensors and a light projector. The solution produces both pictures and video streams as needed. MultiVu's single sensor solution is promised to be inexpensive, compact and energy efficient. MultiVu method is based on state of the art deep learning algorithms, which makes it a 100% passive solution (no illumination), operating as a front facing camera, using depth and RGB data, all in a single shot.

Doron Nevo, CEO of MultiVu said "The technology, which passed the proof-of-concept stage will bring 3D Face Authentication and affordable 3D imaging to the mobile, automotive, industrial and medical markets. We are excited to be given the opportunity to commercialize this technology."

MultiVu's technology is based on four years of research conducted by David Mendlovic and his team from the Tel Aviv University.
