Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MULTI-VIEWPOINT VIDEO CAPTURE
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE CAPTURE VIDÉO À POINTS DE VUE MULTIPLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments of the present invention disclose a system and method for multi-viewpoint video capture. According to one embodiment, the system includes a camera housing for accommodating both a first multi-imager set and a second multi-imager set, with each multi-imager set including a plurality of optical cameras having different viewpoint directions and configured to produce a source image. Furthermore, each camera in the first multi-imager set and the second multi-imager set include corresponding cameras facing in approximately the same viewpoint direction. The first multi-imager set is positioned laterally adjacent to the second multi-imager set such that lines joining a center of projection of corresponding cameras in the first multi-imager set and second multi-imager set are approximately parallel.
(FR)Les modes et formes de réalisation de l'invention concernent un système et un procédé de capture vidéo à points de vue multiples. Selon une forme de réalisation, le système comprend un corps de caméra servant à contenir un premier ensemble imageur multiple et un second ensemble imageur multiple, chaque ensemble imageur multiple incluant une pluralité de caméras optiques comportant différentes directions de point de vue et étant conçu pour produire une image source. De plus, chaque caméra du premier ensemble imageur multiple et du second ensemble imageur multiple comprend des caméras correspondantes orientées approximativement dans la même direction de point de vue. Le premier ensemble imageur multiple est positionné de manière latéralement adjacente au second ensemble imageur multiple, de sorte que les lignes réunissant un centre de projection de caméras correspondantes du premier ensemble imageur multiple et du second ensemble imageur multiple sont approximativement parallèles.
