Lightfield

Explore inside your reality


By capturing several images from the same point of view, we are able to reconstruct the lightfield of the scene. This new approach leads us to have an unprecedented quality and multiple applications.

"This is a new paradigm. Our technology allows us to see more. Standard cameras, different interpretation of the data."
Oscar Gómez: Chief Lightfield project

Definition

Lightfield is capable to obtain volumetric information of the scene captured with only a conventional camera. So, for a scene obtained by a still camera we can estimate the distance from our device to the pixel represented in the image. An out-of-the-shelf smart phone is the only thing needed, the rest is done entirely via software, no additional hardware is needed.

With a camera in a still position we take a set of images varying the focus distance of each image. With this set (focal stack from now on) we can reconstruct the 3D volume of the scene in the focus range identifying theposition in the Z axis of each point in the scene.

Once the volume is obtained, we are capable to detect where are the objects situated in the scene. The quality of our product is the maximum quality provided by the camera.
