MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ImmerVision, inventor of the 360° panomorph lens and worldwide expert in immersive optical technology, announces the appointment of Joel Schaffer to the position of Product Manager - Video Surveillance Applications. Mr. Schaffer's responsibility will be to support ImmerVision Enables® partners in the development of their 360° panomorph products and solutions.
A specialist in the market, Joel brings to ImmerVision more than 20 years of experience in the security industry with a focus on video surveillance. During these years he worked in product management for numerous leading companies including Sensormatic, Tyco and Samsung/GVI. Joel holds a Bachelor of Science Engineering from the University of Illinois.
Reporting directly to the Vice President – VSA, Joel will work closely with ImmerVision’s growing global network of camera manufacturers and software developers to help them develop their own 360° solutions using panomorph lenses and ImmerVision Enables panomorph viewing functionality.

“ImmerVision is transforming the security market with their innovative technology and I am thrilled to be joining their team,” said Joel. “Their open, compatible and scalable 360° panomorph technology is expanding capabilities across the entire industry by enabling any manufacturer to develop their own 360° offering.”
ImmerVision’s mission is to enable people to see everything around them when using its patented 360° panomorph lenses and its ImmerVision Enables immersive viewing functionality. Leading the innovation in 360° panoramic imaging, ImmerVision licenses its panomorph optical and software technology to global lens producers, product manufacturers and software developers. Panomorph lenses are the only ones that can be adapted to any camera, any sensor, and any consumer, commercial and government market. www.immervision.com
