Fraunhofer HHI introduces the OmniCam-360 for recording 3D video panoramas in real time

13.04.2016

At this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas, USA, the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute, HHI is introducing a 3D version of the OmniCam-360. This camera was developed to enable high-resolution 2D and, as of now, also 3D panorama recordings in real time. The new 3D camera technology will be presented at the Fraunhofer exhibition stand SU6716 from April 16 to 21.

The OmniCam-360 developed by Fraunhofer HHI is a series of scalable multi-camera systems with and without mirrors. It generates 2D and 3D panorama recordings that can be used for a wide variety of productions.


At NAB, Fraunhofer HHI is presenting a whole family of 360 degree cameras for real time recordings in 2D und 3D which is based on the tried and tested OmniCam-360 technology.

The different versions of the OmniCam-360 are equipped with either 10 or 20 micro-HD cameras. Single exposures are corrected in real time and assembled into a parallax-free UHD video panorama with a resolution of approximately 10,000 times 2,000 pixels per channel.

The production of real time recordings is made possible by a software-based solution developed especially at Fraunhofer HHI in the form of the Real Time Stitching Engine. This software supports all required processes for the production of UHD panoramas from a selected number of omnidirectional camera images, including color matching, warping, stitching and blending.

The Real Time Stitching Engine assembles a seamless UHD panorama video in 2D or 3D from the various, parallel HD camera streams.

The OmniCam-360 has already been used for various panorama productions. Fraunhofer HHI is presenting the different OmniCam-360 versions in live application at the NAB.

2D and 3D recordings are being corrected in real time and transferred to virtual reality (VR) glasses on site. This allows viewers to enjoy an immersive visual experience.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
