Greylock Funds Refocus Imaging

Waltham, MA- and San Mateo, CA-based Greylock Partners is the leader in a $250,000 Series A financing round for Refocus Imaging, according to regulatory filings cited today by PE Week Wire. The Mountain View, CA, startup is pursuing “computational photography” techniques developed by Stanford researcher Ren Ng that, among other things, allow photographers to adjust the focus of a digital image after it’s been taken. The technology is similar in spirit to techniques developed by Ramesh Raskar, a former researcher at the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratory in Cambridge, MA, who is now at the MIT Media Lab.
