Bell2Bell Podcast featuring Newsight Imaging CEO Eli Assoolin
Bell2Bell’s latest podcast features Eli Assoolin, CEO of Newsight Imaging. The company develops advanced CMOS image sensor chips for 3D machine vision and spectral analysis. Newsight’s depth camera sensors for machine vision serve verticals such as mobile & metaverse, robotics, and automotive safety.
To begin the interview, Assoolin discussed his career and provided some background on Newsight Imaging’s planned business combination with special purpose acquisition company Vision Sensing Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: VSAC).
“I founded Newsight Imaging seven years ago with my partner, Eyal Yatskan. We both come from the semiconductor industry. We worked for years, mainly for a large American company’s Israeli branch, where we were a part of bringing the semiconductor from its relatively early stages in the ‘90s to a very, very important industry these days,” Assoolin stated. “About a year-and-a-half ago, we were looking at how to bring Newsight into its next phase – how to rebrand the company and land in the U.S. while making us a better choice for our customers. We came to the conclusion that we needed to go public somewhere. Eventually, Vision Sensing found us and submitted an offer to merge. Since then, we’ve been working together on a merger that’s expected to be completed soon.”
