As DNEG’s Head of Realtime Technologies, Simon Pabst drives the development of new real-time software and hardware solutions for the next evolution of DNEG’s pipeline, currently focusing on a powerful and flexible virtual camera system, AR/VR/XR applications and mobile apps, and tools supporting DNEG’s LED volume operations.

Prior to heading DNEG’s Virtual Production R&D department, Simon developed successful in-house tools such as DNEG’s onset data ingestion system Jigsaw, panorama stitcher Stig and DNEG’s custom photogrammetry processing pipeline, a software stack ingesting on a daily basis terabytes of complex on-set data across DNEG sites and efficiently processing a high volume of raw images and videos that allows DNEG artists to quickly find and access the on-set data they need. Simon is also academically proficient with a PhD in Computer Graphics from the University of Tübingen.
