Gigapan Gigapixel image of the President’s Inaugural Address

Monday, January 26th, 2009

We’ve mentioned gigapan technology before.

Take a look at this incredible 1,474 Megapixel image of President Barack Obama’s inaugural address.

Gigapan image of President's Inauguration

Details of how he did it at David Bergman’s site:

My final photo is made up of 220 Canon G10 images and the file is 59,783 X 24,658 pixels or 1,474 megapixels. It took more than six and a half hours for the Gigapan software to put together all of the images on my Macbook Pro and the completed TIF file is almost 2 gigabytes.

This is amazing technology – click the image above to view and explore the full-size image – zoom into the crowd and wonder at the detail captured …

Home CCTV on your TV

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

As our home networks extend to connect more and more devices utilising our broadband internet routers, gigabit switches, media centres, wireless networks, multiple family PCs etc. it is becoming ever simpler to share any data on the network.

We don’t normally comment much on developments in televisions here, but just in case it has passed you by, we think it is worth mentioning the advanced connectivity options available from sets such as Sony’s latest Bravia range.

Sony HDTV with ethernet

This HD TV comes with ethernet connectivity and is ready to connect to the internet:

Sony’s new XBR9 and Z-series models feature an Ethernet connection, allowing the sets to directly access Sony BRAVIA Internet Video content using an existing broadband connection. The service offers one of the largest selections of free and premium movies, TV shows, sports, music and more from an array of partners like Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube®, Yahoo!®, Slacker(sm), and others.

Read more details over at engadget.

The XBR9 and Z-series models are also Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA®) compliant, enabling easy access to digital photos, music and video stores on a PC or other DLNA server using the XMB® interface and the TV’s remote control.

This capability should enable you to connect to a PC or Network Attached Storage (NAS) on your network and access stored network CCTV video.

7-megapixel, 180-degree HD network camera

'Digital Window' D7 Camera from Scallop Imaging

HD Network Camera delivering 180° seven megapixel images!

We found this over at Geek.com:

The D7 is a 7 megapixel camera capable of processing 100 megapixels of information per second. It also doesn’t have just one lens, instead incorporating 5 separate lenses allowing for a full 180-degree capture at 15fps.

As well as the high resolution capture, the camera doesn’t need a connection to a power point as it is powered over Ethernet. That means with a single cable you can have a very wide-angled security camera capturing HD footage.

Great for wide-angle CCTV surveillance!

Scallop’s Press Release says:

A single 180° Digital Window camera feeding into one DVR port can replace multiple conventional cameras for most security applications, enabling significant cost savings and faster ROI upon deployment. Customers benefit from an extraordinary increase in capability, at lower cost and lower bandwidth requirements than present IP camera solutions. The Digital Window camera delivers a down-sampled 180° situational awareness view simultaneously with a full resolution zoom window.

Digital Window also offers:
• Excellent facial recognition, in place of existing wide angle solutions that produce only a blur;
• Instant pan and zoom, with no camera movement;
• No fisheye distortion or blind spots;
• paired units can provide a 360° field of view;
• Compatible with video analytics software;
• Power over Ethernet (PoE);
• H.264 image compression; and
• 15 fps video streaming with seven megapixels of detail over standard 10/100 Ethernet networks.
