VNTANA CEO Ashley Crowder calls the companyâ€™s technology, â€œthe worldâ€™s first scalable, affordable and interactive hologram.â€� The startupâ€™s tech has certainly wowed crowds in recent years.
In 2016, it collaborated with Microsoft on HOLLAGRAM, beaming in a live hologram of MS executives during a HOLLAGRAM for a keynote at HackSC. The companyâ€™s technology has also been embraced by Intel. The chipmaker deployed VNTANAâ€™s tech during its own keynote at Computex that same year.
Crowder co-founded VNTANA in 2012, along with fellow USC grad (and current COO) Ben Conway. Before VNTANA, she worked at Gulfstream, Northrop Grumman and BP, utilizing her experience in manufacturing to help design the new companyâ€™s early offerings.
In 2013, the team sent a video of a hacked Kinect to Microsoft, demonstrating how the companyâ€™s popular hands-free controller could be used for gesture tracking and control with VNTANAâ€™s holographic images. It was enough to gain the startup a place in Microsoftâ€™s Early Developer and BizSpark programs.
These days, the company is focused on augmented and mixed reality experiences, topics Crowder will discuss at TC Sessions: AR/VR on October 18 at UCLA. The one-day event combines onstage conversations about augmented and virtual reality with in-person demos and networking.
