Once In a Lifetime River Tour Starts Here! Unfortunately, Everybody’s Dead

GigaPixel Daguerreotype: This is Cincinnati on Sunday, September 24th, 1848—162 years ago. The picture, a daguerreotype taken by Charles Fontayne and William Porter (who were standing on the other side of the Ohio River), is so fantastically sharp you can-with your mouse - step right onto the streets, onto the riverboats, peek through windows, explore rooftops as if you had slipped into the 1840's with a pass key.

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>

Gigapixel Fan Cam at Tri Nations Game

A great marketing use of Gigapixel technology. To get an idea of the quality of the high resolution image, this is a screenshot of some of the spectators right at the top of the stadium. Crystal clear viewing of fans in the stands. If you had been at this event you would be able to double click on yourself and enter your info and share it on FaceBook or Twitter. MORE>

Making real-time intuitive decisions via a large-scale gigapixel display

“HokieSpeed is expected to catalyze new approaches for conducting research via the synergistic amalgamation of heterogeneous supercomputing and cyber-enabled tools to enhance ease of use. In particular, it will give end users the ability to perform in-situ visualization for rapid visual information synthesis and analysis. It will also control their level of immersion in the discovery process – from being completely immersed, making real-time intuitive decisions via a large-scale gigapixel display. 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.
