SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pelican Imaging announced today that it is using its camera array technology to deliver a depth solution for mixed/augmented reality devices. There is market transition in progress in both mobile and MR/AR markets where there is a need for robust depth solutions that work in all lighting conditions, over a broad range of distances.
Chris Pickett, Pelican CEO, said: "As I mentioned in my presentation recently at Augmented World Expo, we believe multi-baseline camera arrays augmented with near-IR patterned illumination can address the needs of depth imaging for these devices. This allows the system to perform robustly in both low light and bright light conditions while delivering high precision near- and far-field depth, providing advantages over 'time of flight' systems."
Pelican is uniquely positioned to deliver this solution by extending the depth sensing technology it developed for mobile handsets. Recently, Pelican Imaging restructured its company to simplify its organization and align the internal resources with the company's overall business strategy in order to deliver this solution to the schedule required by its customers. This restructuring provides Pelican Imaging financial stability and sufficient resources needed to execute on addressing the needs of these markets.
