Using multiple cameras to create three-dimensional video
Increasing the number of cameras has enabled us to capture wider multi-viewpoint images. We have developed a more sophisticated robotic system by incorporating smaller cameras using fewer cables, higher video quality and processing speed in comparison with the previous one.
Producers and commentators of sports events can now choose from among the various cameras to show the best shot to better illustrate the movements of the players.
The system is capable of generating integral 3D images* (for integral 3D television) from the multi-viewpoint images.
We will improve the quality of the multi-viewpoint images and use the system to cover the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
* Integral 3D images: autostereoscopic 3D images that do not require special glasses and still exhibit parallax depending on the viewing angle.
