DI4D was founded in January 2003 to commercialize research carried out at the University of Glasgow into stereo photogrammetry, a method of deriving 3D data (or 3D scans) from just two camera views of the same scene. At that time, laser scanning was the state of the art in 3D surface capture, but it was not ideal for capturing humans because they had to remain completely still for several seconds while they were scanned. Alternatively, DI4D began using digital still cameras and photogrammetry, revolutionizing human facial capture because it is able to capture 3D shape and appearance (texture) simultaneously in
