GigaPixel Surveillance in our future

I recently wrote an article on GigaPixel Surveillance and sent it to over 300+ members in the GigaPixel Surveillance group on LinkedIn. The article starts with: I have been asked if I really believe that GigaPixel technology will be used for security surveillance, after all we’re talking about a digital image bitmap composed of one billion pixels (picture elements), 1000 times the information captured by a 1 megapixel camera.

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>

New Gigapixel camera vastly improves surveillance

Revolutionary gigapixel camera design could have far-reaching implications for the military, crime prevention, and enforcement as well as traffic analysis and emergency response support; design is based on an array of light sensitive chips placed at the focal plane of a large multiple-lens system MORE>

Navigating a 13.3 gigapixel image on a 22 megapixel display wall!

Gigapixel images are great, but navigating them on a regular sized display through a slow web browser isn't always a great experience. This video shows how we navigate a 13.3 gigapixel image of Tromsø, Norway on a 22 megapixel display wall, using a custom, camera-based multi-touch interface and a custom system for high-performance navigation and visualization of high-resolution datasets.

The world’s most tagged GigaPixel?

Orange has tried to create a world record for the getting the most tagged people in one photo, using a view from the Pyramid stage at the Glastonbury festival. The pic itself is a 1.3 gigapixel, 75,000 pixel-wide image compiled from 36 photos that took one minute to capture. They used two Hasselblad H4D-50 cameras with 50 megapixel digital backs and, camera geeks, a 150mm lens on top and 100mm lens tilt shift adapter. Both cameras were mounted vertically on a tripod and rotated at 10 degree increments to take the pictures. MORE>

Memory chips could lead the way to GigaPixel cameras

A research group from the Netherlands believes a cheaper solution could be right before our eyes – the team’s “gigavision” technique exploits the high light sensitivity of memory chips to produce inexpensive gigapixel sensors that perform very well, especially in extreme lighting conditions. MORE>

Sony and the University of Alabama build a GigaPixel Camera

Such a camera mounted on an aircraft could provide images of a large city by itself. This would even allow individual vehicles to be monitored without any danger of losing them as they move from one ground level CCTV system to another. MORE>

Video Cameras Learn From Insect Eyes

University of Adelaide researcher can now produce digital videos in which you can see every detail. The technique solves a critical problem for surveillance cameras, where the clarity of images is everything. "When it comes to seeing," says Dr Russell Brinkworth, a postdoctoral research fellow in the Discipline of Physiology at the University of Adelaide, "even a tiny insect brain can outperform any current artificial system.

How to Make Great GIGAPIXEL Images With Your Humble Digital Camera

Size matters, at least when it comes to the resolution of digital photos. As much as I love my iPhone, its built-in 1200×1600-pixel camera just doesn’t work for serious photography. Problem is, it’s been my only camera for almost a year, ever since my previous digicam croaked during a cross-country road trip. MORE>
