2D to 3D Photo and Video Conversion


Based in Los Angeles, Tarantula AI was formed to create visual depth-effects, and AR/VR content utilizing state-of-the-art deep learning.


There is strong consumer desire for 3D and 2D+ media content. However, consumer grade hardware does not yet fully support the creation of this content, and commercial grade processes are expensive and time consuming. Tarantula AI needed to bootstrap their product with R&D muscle that could prototype and scale up the technology they needed. The technology start-up world moves fast, so it needed to happen quickly.


The Digitalist AI team rolled up its sleeves and created a commercial prototype for IMA/GEN™. This software achieves fully automated and highly accurate 2D-to-3D conversion at less than 5% of the cost of alternatives. It converts live action photo and video from any source, including 180/360 VR, and works in resolutions from 1080p HD to 8K. IMA/GEN™ is also fast, and can be utilized in real time.

We continue to work on many exciting initiatives! If you are intrigued to learn more or collaborate with us, feel free to contact Marty Banting marty.banting@digitalistgroup.com directly.
