Carnegie Mellon - To Explore Scientific Use of Gigapixel Imagery - White Papers

The conference is attracting researchers from around the world who will explore the use of GigaPixel in the classroom, field and laboratory. It's the first event of its kind and Pittsburgh is savvy enough to be on the forefront of it.  The implications for science are unprecedented, giving them an opportunity to view cells close-up, even catalog entire collections of information such as insects.  MORE>

Gigapixel Cameras Create Highly Revealing Snapshots (GigaPixel 360 quoted in the "Scientific American" article)

Gigapixel digital imagery is still in its infancy but demand for it will grow quickly as the technology develops. "In 1999, megapixel cameras were a dream," says Christopher Hills, a security consultant with Securitas Security Services who also runs the site gigapixel360.com. Now high-end digital cameras can take 25-megapixel images. "I absolutely believe it's going to be the next big step in the evolution of surveillance and video," he adds. "The world is always going to move toward bigger, faster, less expensive pictures and video." MORE>

HR3D: High-Rank 3D Display and Gigapixel Computational Imaging

We have developed a 3D display called High-Rank 3D (HR3D). Unlike displays currently sold for home and theater use, the HR3D display does not require any special glasses or eyewear. In addition, the HR3D display generates multi-view imagery, meaning that viewers can truly look around the edges of 3D objects. MORE>

Gigapixel Photography and Cameras Tips

The advent of digital technology has caused a revolution in the way we think of photography. Before this revolution, most of us thought of photography in terms of images captured on film that subsequently would be transformed into prints by way of photographic enlargement. However, rapid proliferation of digital cameras, scanners and printers has changed this perception. Even the prevailing jargon has changed. Where previously an image was described in terms of granularity and acutance, it now more often is defined by pixel count and dpi. MORE>
