What is Vision Technology Inc?
We are an advanced camera development firm striving to empower businesses with wide field-of-view video and imaging solutions.
The HemView is our newest product and it features a 360 degree field-of-view. It produces real-time, seamless, uniform resolution at 30 frames-per-second. It has all of the features of regular pan/tilt cameras but without any moving parts.
Our HemViewTM imaging product takes advantage of special hardware to produce a single perspective view of a large scene. It provides uniform resolution throughout the entire hemispherical image. A custom user interface provides motorless pan-tilt control for live viewing of the entire scene.
These products are supported by a custom FireWire backbone for high-speed image transfer allowing multiple images to be analyzed and transformed into final image, with HemViewTM these can be completed and displayed at customary video rates.
- Primary window shows current area of interest
- Auxiliary views can be oriented to ‘Keep an Eye On’ specific scene parts (e.g. Door, Safe, etc.)
- ‘Bird’s-Eye’ view showing entire covered area, with main window orientation outlined and indicators showing auxiliary view locations
- Auxiliary views can be easily transferred to the primary window with a single click
- Allows an arbitrary number of pan/tilt windows to shown simultaneously
- Allows pan/tilt window operation without moving parts
- User Interface with standard quad split view
The hardware for our NicamTM imaging product produces a focusing capability from 1ft to infinity; this, in conjuction with software capable of determining proper focus and depth estimation, provides unmatched abilities to produce panoramic images with all objects in focus. Our image processing technologies are capable of producing 360-degree images without a single seam. Our experience in producing user interfaces allows navigation through these images, which are shown under perspective projection to eliminate familiar curvature distortions in traditional panoramic images.
