WOOPTIX LIGHT FIELD
The light field is a vector function that describes the amount of light flowing in every direction through every point. Everything we can see is illuminated by light coming from a light source, travelling through space and hitting surfaces. At each surface, light is partly absorbed, and partly reflected or refracted to another surface, where it bounces again, until it finally reaches our eyes (or camera). What exactly we can see depends on our position in the light field, perceiving only a part of it. This is the information we use to get an idea about the relative position of objects in our environment.
WOOPTIX´S LIGHT FIELD DOES NOT NEED OF MICROLENSES OR ANY OTHER RESOLUTION KILLER. IT PROVIDES FULL RESOLUTION OF THE SENSOR IN REAL TIME GIVING VOLUMETRIC INFORMATION OF THE SCENE.
Wooptix Light Field
With a new approach to light field imaging WOOPTIX is using a single variable lens to acquire a focal stack to approximate the direction of the light rays. Rather than using a microlens or camera array, which requires heavy computing and lower the resolution significantly, Wooptix uses a single variable lens maintaining the full sensor resolution light field image output.
