3D Stereo Visualization Kit

June 3, 2003 - Point Grey Research Inc. (PGR) launches their latest 3D Stereo Visualization Kit (3DSVK) at the International Robots and Vision Show in Rosemont June 3 to 5, 2003. The 3DSVK is an inexpensive add on to PGR’s Bumblebee camera that enables high quality stereo visualization.

The 3DSVK uses stereo images produced by the Bumblebee to create video that is easy to visualize in 3D when displayed. The Bumblebee system consists of two cameras with 640x480 or 1024x768 resolutions, B&W or Color, and is precalibrated to remove any lens distortions or misalignments that may cause problems with visualization. Each kit includes Vrex glasses, nVidia graphics card, software CD and a user manual.

"It’s an easy and inexpensive solution for producing stereo images, users no longer need to invest in elaborate and expensive camera rigs" says PGR’s Vladimir Tucakov. "Teleoperation and telepresence are just a few applications that will certainly benefit from using the kit."

The 3DSVK kit is flexible, portable and works "right out of the box." With three viewing modes available, users can choose between single stereo image acquisition, streamed stereo video acquisition or on-line stereo viewing. Anyone requiring a portable solution can simply connect their camera and 3DSVK kit to a laptop.

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.
