S5168 - So You Want to Create the Holodeck? A Closer Look at OTOY's Lightfield Technology

Jules Urbach CEO & Founder, OTOY Inc.
Jules Urbach
Jules Urbach is a pioneer in computer graphics, streaming and 3D rendering with over 25 years of industry experience. He attended Harvard-Westlake high school in LA before being accepted to Harvard University. He decided to defer his acceptance to Harvard (indefinitely as it turned out) to make revolutionary video games. To that end, he made his first game, Hell Cab (Time Warner Interactive) at age 18, which was one of the first CD-ROM games ever created. Six years after Hell Cab, Jules founded Groove Alliance. Groove created the first 3D game ever available on (Real Pool). Currently, Jules is busy working on his two latest ventures, OTOY and LightStage which aim to revolutionize 3D content capture, creation and delivery.

Attendees will learn about OTOY's light field rendering technology which allows for immersive experiences on mobile HMDs and next gen displays. OTOY is actively developing a groundbreaking light field rendering pipeline, including the world's first portable 360 LightStage capture system and a cloud-based graphics platform for creating and streaming light field media for virtual reality and emerging holographic displays. OTOY's breakthroughs in compression and rendering on NVIDIA GPUs have dramatically reduced the barriers for light field video streaming, making it a viable media format that gives content creators everywhere a simple, cost-effective way to bring high quality, interactive 3D content to multiple platforms for the world to enjoy.
