We hope that everyone had a great October, we've certainly been busy this month! 

Another new investment announced, our team moderating pitching events, attending numerous (digital) events and some exciting portfolio updates to inform you about! November isn't looking any quieter, so the run-up to Christmas should be busy!


In this months edition we will cover: 

                  🚨Welcome to Condense Reality! 

Founded in 2019, Condense Reality is building the next generation of streaming standards through “volumetric video” (a three-dimensional image that can be viewed by multiple people from different angles) of live events alongside a normal television broadcast. The startup’s technology has the potential to bring entertainment and sport to life on the tabletop, complementing on-screen action.
 

Nick Fellingham, CEO of Condense Reality, said: 


“Our technology aims to bridge real and virtual worlds by enabling broadcasters to record live events as volumetric video and instantly stream them to viewers."
