An Inexpensive Video Panorama System
firstname.lastname@example.org Week 1,
, Week 2
I'm calling this week 4 but I just needed to break the pages up. Today
is really only feb 21st... midwinter work rush
has been quite profound this year... This project started on the 13th
only 8 days ago and we are already shooting panoramic video from cartops
with the 6-camera rig we built and saving it to the application we wrote...
Of course Jon Summers down on the beach coast of australia has gotten
really into it. We've been video chatting, and the 6 camera rig is my side,
so I can flip between cameras and show him issues.... The little app for
the 'hexacam' now displays and records the six cameras in realtime. We're
working on post stitching methods, and realtime stitching, two thing I thought
I wouldn't get to for a couple months...
Having great people working on the project all over the world is pretty
nice... Anders Jiras in Sweden did a lot of the work below, and Irene Blueth
on Cortez Island B.C. spent a lot of time on the stitch. With Dennis in
France it's quite the international effort... (paul stewart in cambodia might
get involved soon...) It helps that I've been working on panoramic imagery
with people all over the world for almost a decade through my apps...
There are a couple
of movies you can get involved in here too!:
This pano was the second shot with the home-made hexicam.The
stitch is by Anders Jiras in Sweden...
