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.

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.

Special Forces’ GigaPixel flying spy

Developed under the auspices of Darpa, the camera is the sensor part of Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance – Imaging System or ARGUS-IS. The camera is composed of four arrays, each containing 92 five-megapixel imagers. The other parts of ARGUS are the airborne processing system, which has to deal with a phenomenal torrent of data, and the ground-based element. The airborne part fits into a 500-pound pod. MORE>

Billion-pixel panoramas from your own camera

A device that lets a camera take pictures with 100 times the resolution of the most advanced models on the market is poised to revolutionise amateur photography. The Gigapan allows people to take pictures which are more than a gigapixel - or 1,000 megapixels - in size, effectively turning a single photograph into a panoramic experience, around which the viewer can navigate on a computer. Yet the actual camera used is no more specialised than a regular digital model.  HERE>
