    SUMMARY: The software and camera company plans to use the money to expand its team, build 360 degree cameras and make more films.

    -- Just five months after coming out of stealth mode, virtual reality cinema startup Jaunt is looking to scale big time with a $27.8 million Series B round. The company will use the funds to grow its team, build more of its 360-degree cameras and produce films.

    Jaunt’s small team is based out of Palo Alto, Calif., where it has been prototyping and building a unique camera that sports a ring of lenses. Together, they capture a nearly full sphere of video that can then be edited with Jaunt’s software. Inside a virtual reality headset, viewers can look around as if they are inside the movie.
