Open Access EPIModules on a Geodesic: Toward 360° Light-Field Imaging

(PDF 2,224.3 kb)
We discuss the design and operation of an Epipolar-Plane Imaging light-field camera array and embedded-computation system designed for panoramic operation. Built from a planar configured EPI module, this is a hybrid capable of imaging in 360° x 3D. We discuss the geometry and constraints of EPI imaging, its connection with the design and structuring of the acquisition array, and the architecture of the EPIModule forming the basis for our panoramic capture. Finally, we show an arrangement of modules on a geodesic – the Truncated Icosahedron of football/soccer – which happens to suit the optical and mechanical properties of the first EPIModule we have built. Results are preliminary; more will be presented for the conference publication.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
