Spherical Vision

FLIR makes spherical video a reality by providing affordable hardware and software packages that deliver high-resolution 360° visual coverage.  All three Ladybug systems perform the image acquisition, processing, stitching and correction necessary to integrate multiple camera images into full-resolution digital spherical and panoramic videos in real time. The quality and flexibility of spherical video data make the medium ideal for applications requiring synchronization of video images. This revolutionary technology is now used for a wide variety of applications and solutions. 

 


 

WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT FLIR 360° SPHERICAL CAMERA IMAGING SYSTEMS?

Rich Features
The Ladybug spherical systems provide 360° video streaming, cover 90% of the visual sphere, are pre-calibrated for ease of use, and perform the image acquisition, porcessing, stitching, and correction for full-resolution digital spherical and panoramic videos in real-time.

Time Saving, Image Enhancing Features 
Ladybug5’s unique post-processing workflow provides maximum dynamic range and user flexibility by moving the image processing from the camera to the host PC. Users are able to make decisions and experiment with settings post-recording and watch the effects in real-time; no need to re-record.

Geometric-Based Calibration and Accuracy
Rather than relying purely on mechanical calibration, the Ladybug systems use software to calibrate each camera on its own and in relation to each of the other five cameras. The system is able to know the vector associated with every pixel, in each camera, to one-hundredth of a degree accuracy.
