[Imaging & Rendering] A Low Cost Multi-Camera Array for Panoramic Light Field Video Capture
TimeTuesday, 19 November 20199:00 - 18:00
DescriptionWe present a portable multi-camera system for recording panoramic light field video content. The proposed system is capable of capturing wide baseline (0.8 meters), high resolution (>15 pixels per degree), large field of view (>220 degree) light fields at 30 frames per second. The array contains 47 time-synchronized cameras distributed on the surface of a hemispherical plastic dome. We use commercially available action sports cameras (Yi 4k) mounted inside the dome. The dome, mounts, triggering hardware and cameras are inexpensive and the array is easy to fabricate.
