Mtg: Camera Array Technology Through Time

by @ 6:08 pm. Filed under ALL, Communications, Electronics Design, Optics/Displays, Semiconductors
 

THURSDAY September 2, 2014
SCV Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley

Speaker: Tim MacMillan, GoPro, Inc.
Time: Presentation at 7:00 PM
Cost: none
Place: Agilent Technologies, 5301 Stevens Creek Blvd., Santa Clara
RSVP: not required
Web: www.CaliforniaConsultants.org

The Time-Slice effect was invented by speaker Tim Macmillan in the 1980s.  It was made popular with its use in a series of ads in the 1990s and ultimately the 1999 movie The Matrix, and this effect has become a standard feature of many action movies and TV commercials.  With the recent proliferation of higher quality cameras in consumer devices, users are now experimenting with ad-hoc arrays of DSLRs such as GoPros and camera phones.
Tim MacMillan will present the rich history of the design and use of camera arrays in the worlds of photography and cinema effects, starting with the genesis of motion pictures nearly 150 years ago.  He will chart the design philosophies that led him to explore the modern technologies enabling this effect, and he will also look at how the new wave of imaging technologies are enabling new and surprising applications.
