9th IEEE International Workshop on Projector?Camera Systems
Sprache des Tagungstitel:
In this talk, I will reflect almost 10 years of our research in projector-camera systems. This includes adaptive photometric compensation, projector-superimposed dynamic range, flexible blue screens enabled by projector-camera systems, closed-loop feedback lighting for microscopes, and coded aperture projection. I will also outline the first steps in our latest basic research project, LumiConsens, towards transparent, flexible, scalable, and disposable image sensors using luminous concentrator wave guides. These are only a few examples of research activities that, potentially, lead to more or less valuable publications. The interesting questions, however, are: Is there anything beyond? Is there a true demand for projector-camera systems outside our scientific community? What is it, and how large is it?
Within the previous years, we did not only carry out research in projector-camera systems, but also accompanied a young spin-off company, VIOSO (www.vioso.com), on their adventure trip to the real world. Their journey diary is quite disillusioning. Instead of a mass market with revenues in the billions and an easy life of the entrepreneurs, only a few niches exist that require a tremendous amount of effort to be sustainably served. Stage projection in Madison Square Garden, to name only one example, isn't quite the same as a conference demo. What is published in papers isn't necessarily what is mainly needed. In this talk, I will also read a few pages of VIOSO's journey diary to give the audience a glimpse on what is waiting outside laboratory doors.
