Automated Stereo Production (ASP)A smart embedded 3D stereo camera assistance system for unattended broadcast and POV applications
Reducing the cost of future 3D stereo recording is the aim of the ASP (Automated Stereo Production) collaborative research project. At the NAB 2013, project partners Fraunhofer HHI, Fraunhofer IIS, ZEISS, P+S Technik and KUK Film have shown their new stereo concept which is simple to use, low cost, highly functional and largely automatic.
The ASP system is based on a mirrorless side-by-side camera system with integration of newly developed components like high-end zoom lenses and compact smart cameras. Integration of highly complex algorithms enables real-time correction and configuration of key parameters for stereo quality such as color matching and stereo geometry or stereo baseline and convergence. The whole system only requires a small number of servomotors and is much more robust than conventional systems whilst also significantly reducing the time and effort needed for setup.
