Summary:
A novel high definition 3D lossless imaging system has been developed by researchers. Based on high definition 3D lossless digital imaging technology, the Compound Eye imaging system can acquire realistic 3D positional information of objects at both near and far fields, which provides a solution to image distortion caused by conditions such as insufficient light and inadequate resolution.

A novel high definition 3D lossless imaging system developed by researchers at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

The imaging process is often affected by the field of view, wavefront aberration, ambient light, as well as the resolution of optical imaging system and detector. In such case, the image information of the object cannot be accurately transferred to the image plane, resulting in distortion, deviation and noise convolution that affect the ultimate image quality.

Based on high definition 3D lossless digital imaging technology, the Compound Eye imaging system can acquire realistic 3D positional information of objects at both near and far fields, which provides a solution to image distortion caused by conditions such as insufficient light and inadequate resolution.

Special Features and Advantages

• Does not reduce the size of the field of view

• Flexible system design that can be customized for different

Applications

• Imaging applications: light field cameras, surveillance cameras, microscopic imaging systems and 3D imaging, etc.

• Displacement and velocity measurement
