Point Grey’s 3D Stereo Vision Camera Improves Performance, Lowers Cost and Improves Quality of 3D Imaging Solutions


January 26, 1999 –Using the Pentium III processor, Point Grey’s MMX optimized Triclops library provides an increase in the processing speed as well as the accuracy of the 3D imaging results. With the increase in the processing power of computers and the decrease in the cost of camera components, Point Grey Research now provides low cost, high quality 3D imaging solutions.

"Our ongoing development efforts have resulted in advances in the technology," said Rod Barman, President of Point Grey Research. "Improving the speed and the quality is a huge benefit to our users," he said, "and now provides the robotics industry with the lowest cost 3D imaging solution available in this category."

The Triclops family of cameras are designed to provide high quality 3D images in black and white or color. The camera consists of three high resolution S-video color cameras, in an L configuration. The Y channels of the three cameras are connected to an RGB frame grabber for stereo processing. The Y/C signal of the reference camera is connected to a second S-video frame grabber for black and white or color data acquisition.

In addition to its products sales, PGR also offers custom development services and solutions using the power of Triclops technologies for a broad range of applications.

Point Grey Research is a worldwide leader in the development of advanced digital camera technology products. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, PGR designs, manufactures and distributes IEEE-1394 cameras, stereo vision cameras and spherical digital video cameras to a broad spectrum of industries. Through a close working relationship with its customers, PGR continues to be at the forefront of innovation.
