  • Title:
    Slovak university is offering an autonomous stereoscopic camera system
  • Start date:
    26 januari 2017
  • End date:
    25 januari 2019
  • Summary:
    Research team from a distinguished Slovak university has developed unique new stereoscopic camera system enabling professional 3D recordings. The proposed technology offers innovative method of determining the convergence point and the size of the stereoscopic base of the system, as well as the virtual connection of the control module. The university is seeking partners through financial agreement or licensing agreement.
  • Description:
    Shooting and transmitting images in Stereoscopic 3D is an attempt to replicate what we see with our own two eyes. Generally, there are two approaches for producing stereoscopic recordings: using one or two cameras. Stereoscopic recordings produced by one camera are widely popular, but offer only limited results and no variability in positioning of the lenses. These deficiencies can be solved using two cameras, however, this approach is very demanding on the technical skill of the user.

    The disadvantages in both approaches evoked the need to design a method for transformation of the parameters of the reproduced picture into the settings of an autonomous stereoscopic camera system in the variant of converging camera axes.

    As a result of this effort, the research team from Slovak university has been able to develop a method for determining the distance of the convergence point (where the object appears in relation to the screen) and the size of the stereoscopic base of the system (distance between the centers of two camera lenses), as well as the virtual connection of the control module. The technical solution is based on the construction and adjustment of two independent cameras for producing stereoscopic video recordings.

    The simplicity of the operation and the quality and complexity of the produced recordings predetermine the device for common home use, as well as for professional sphere of 3D recording. There is also a substantial interest in the presented utility model for the use as a monitoring system for manufacturing processes, where its application can be truly extensive.

    The university is interested in technology transfer with industrial companies via license agreement or financial agreement (university is looking for investors regarding this technology). Please see the "Type and Role of Partner Sough" field for further details.

  • Advantages and Innovations:
    The low price of technology and quality workmanship allowing easy handling and control complexity are the main competitive advantages of the presented invention. Another significant benefit of the proposed stereoscopic system is that in addition to the technical advantages, it also takes into account the abilities of the human eye, to which it is adapted. Careful adjustment of cameras, angles and other parameters allows adapting to the lens of the human eye and to the limitations of perception. Technical contribution of presented solution is the possibility of free adjustment of the cameras.
