at the SIGGRAPH 2004 tradeshow
in LA, PGR
had a spectacular launch of the color Flea™
camera. Not one, not twenty, but 64 hi-res color Flea™ cameras
were used to demonstrate the multi-camera array and "Movia" technology
developed by PGR's customer, Digital Air.
Due to it's miniature size, it was possible
to set up all 64 cameras in a 10' circular rig and externally trigger
them to capture a live action shot. All 64 frames were then
rendered and viewed onto a 42" plasma screen. The cameras were
networked using only 2 PCs connected via an ethernet cable; 32 cameras
per PC, 4 buses per PC and 8 cameras per bus.
The Flea™ is now available in
both color and monochrome.

Photorealistic Camera, is a
multi-flash camera that automatically
generates stylized images and videos. It enhances the imagery to make
it easy to understand the relative depth, or 3D structure, of the
objects in the scene.
This exhibit is a vital part of the
SIGGRAPH show as it showcases both scientific and fine art advances
that may enhance our lives in the near and distant future.
PGR is proud to be a contributor to such cutting-edge research.
