Graphics technology company Umbra conquers new territory with private investment

Umbra uses the EUR 3 million investment to further develop technology for streaming and rendering any 3D content on any device in real time. Tekes has funded the company's R&D and growth to global markets.

The company aims to create a new technical standard that provides a solution for displaying 3D content in various industries. Advanced 3D scanning creates detailed models out of real life objects like buildings, environments or even complete cities. Future growth areas include architectural planning, construction engineering, digital maps and simulations.

Umbra's new technology is built upon the company's existing 3D visibility solution which increases rendering performance of applications by processing only the content that is visible to the user. The current software has been used in many biggest video game productions, like Destiny, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight.

Tekes' funding has allowed Umbra to develop e.g. international business competence, pursue long-term development of its technology and invest in optimising this technology for new generation consoles.
