Personify Leverages the Intel® RealSense™ 3D Camera to Bring Video Calling to Life

New Personify application launched at CES 2015; featured in the Intel® RealSense™ App Showcase

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —   Personify, the leader in immersive video technology, launched a new application called Personify this week, which leverages Intel® RealSense™ technology to bring a more realistic dimension to video calling. Using the world's foremost dynamic background removal technology, Personify separates the user from their environment and immerses them onto their desktop, like a real-time green screen. The experience heightens the video calling experience and makes video more valuable for collaboration and sharing online experiences.


Personify's application is available today on the Intel RealSense App Showcase. The App Showcase brings the Intel RealSense experience to life through the use of 3D imaging technology, for innovative new developments in gaming, education, entertainment, content creation and collaboration.

"Imagine watching a movie online with your friends, or playing a game together while being able to see their faces, not in a separate video window, but together and overlaid in the same space, sharing the experience as a group," said Sanjay Patel, co-founder and CEO of Personify. "With Personify, that experience is possible today. From the beginning, our vision has been to make a video call feel more life-like and Intel's RealSense technology has enabled us to make that vision a reality."

"At Intel, we are committed to bringing the next generation of natural, immersive and intuitive applications to the world," said Mooly Eden, senior vice president, general manager of Perceptual Computing. "As a trailblazer in background removal technology for immersive collaboration, Personify has played a strong role in helping us showcase the incredible new capabilities offered by Intel RealSense technology."

The background subtraction technology behind the Personify application is also licensed by Intel and included in theIntel RealSense SDK for external use by other developers and applications in its ecosystem.

Personify is a free application and works with Windows 7 and 8 operating systems, with the Mac version available later in 2015. Users can have video calls with friends who do not have a 3D camera, such as an Intel RealSense 3D Camera. Personify is available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.
