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: New proton record: Researchers measure magnetic moment with greatest possible precision

High-precision measurement of the g-factor eleven times more precise than before / Results indicate a strong similarity between protons and antiprotons

The magnetic moment of an individual proton is inconceivably small, but can still be quantified. The basis for undertaking this measurement was laid over ten...

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
