Telecommunication and New Technology

with John Chwalibog

Virtual Technology Simplified (VTS) turned 6 the day this episode was recorded. But it was the RCN community that got the gift; a thorough, at times poignant discussion with VTS CEO, John Chwalibog.

John’s big on phones. A seasoned capturer in the telecom space, he separately developed reality capture via smartphone and tablet. He is a skilled problem-solver, intuitive businessman, and overall stellar conversationalist – he even interviews Matt for a stretch of time.

From his early days at Faro and Matterport, to capturing for insurers, to VTS becoming a revered operation in the reality capture & digital twin space, John’s arc and personal outlook are pure delight. His in-person appearance is sure to leave you wiser on workflows, instinct, passion, and what it means to fall forward.
