We can finally disclose exciting news that we hinted at in a blog post last May: Embodee has extended an exclusive license to its patented Online Try-On℠ technology to a newly formed company, Intervisual Corp.
Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Intervisual was founded by Embodee’s former chief technology officer, George Borshukov. Working with Embodee CEO André Wolper, George led the development of the try-on technology along with R&D Director Isabelle Haulin, who has also joined Intervisual.
The staggering but steady leaps in computing power make possible Embodee’s virtual product experiences, as they do countless other things. Without several decades of exponential advances, our servers would take intolerably long to dynamically render images of apparel. And your web-enabled devices would take even longer to display them.
For example, our recently patented virtual try-on technology produces in seconds a 360-degree view of how a pair of jeans fit you. In the past it would have taken minutes or even hours, an experience like trying on those jeans in a dressing room but endlessly waiting to see anything in the mirror.
Embodee Corp. ranks as the 15th fastest-growing private company in Oregon and southwest Washington based on its revenue increase from 2010 through 2012.
Portland Business Journal, which compiles a Top 100 list annually, announced the rankings at a gala Thursday night in downtown Portland. Private companies in all industries were considered for the honor. Embodee’s revenue increased 309.8 percent during the three-year period.
The news follows Embodee’s announcement last week that the company had been awarded a U.S. government patent for its unique process of creating and modeling 3D garments. Large apparel brands that use the process improve how they merchandise and sell products online.

Dynamic image rendering process lowers costs for brands and facilitates digital merchandising and mass customization.
Portland, Ore., June 11, 2013 -- Embodee Corp. has been awarded a U.S. government patent for its unique process of creating and modeling 3D digital garments. Large apparel brands that use the process improve how they merchandise and sell products online.
For the first time, the process makes possible production of an unlimited volume of dynamically rendered garment images at lower incremental costs than conventional photography. Brands can display virtual samples for merchandising to wholesalers and retailers, and finished garments for e-commerce sales.
