Generalized Image Acquisition and Analysis

A Reconfigurable Camera Add-On for High Dynamic Range, Multispectral, Polarization, and Light-Field Imaging

We propose a non-permanent add-on that enables plenoptic imaging with standard cameras which we refer to as KaleidoCamera. Our design is based on a physical copying mechanism that multiplies a sensor image into a number of identical copies that still carry the plenoptic information of interest. Via different optical filters, we can then recover the desired information. A minor modification of the design also allows for aperture subsampling and, hence, light-field imaging. As the filters in our design are exchangeable, a reconfiguration for different imaging purposes is possible. We show in a prototype setup that high dynamic range, multispectral, polarization, and light-field imaging can be achieved with our design.

Abstract

Mirror systems have recently emerged as an alternative low-cost multi-view imaging solution. The use of these systems critically depends on the ability to compute the background of a multiply mirrored object. The images taken in such systems show a fractured, patterned view, making edge-guided segmentation difficult. Further, global illumination and light attenuation due to the mirrors make standard segmentation techniques fail. We therefore propose a system that allows a user to do the segmentation manually. We provide convenient tools that enable an interactive segmentation of kaleidoscopic images containing three-dimensional objects. Hereby, we explore suitable interaction and visualization schemes to guide the user. To achieve interactivity, we employ the GPU in all stages of the application, such as 2D/3D rendering as well as segmentation.
