16x Helium 8K: Facebook and RED present Manifold VR-Kamera mit 6DoF

16x Helium 8K: Facebook and RED present Manifold VR-Kamera mit 6DoF

[16:17 thu,27.September 2018   by ]    

At the Oculus Connect 5 conference Facebook announced more details about the professional 360/VR camera with 6 Degrees-of-Freedom (6DoF), which will be developed together with with RED. The Manifold named ball rig will consist of 16 camera modules, each consisting of a RED Helium 8K sensor and a Schneider 8mm/F4.0 fisheye optics with 180° image angle. The helium sensor (29.90 mm x 15.77 mm, 35.4MP) is capable of delivering 8K at 60fps -- for immersive 360° recording, 16 such raw streams are simultaneously recorded via a SMPTE 304M connection. Five 12G SDISDI im Glossar erklärt connectors are also available for previews and/or stitching.

A volumetric surround view must then be generated from the individual overlapping video data in order to provide the desired freedom of movement during viewing. Depth estimation algorithms developed by Facebook are used for this, which are to be integrated into a complete toolset from Otoy for an uncomplicated workflow. High-quality pixel information is required for depth estimation; according to Facebook, the Red sensors deliver sufficiently high dynamics to extract enough image information even in dark areas. (The RED sensors have already been discussed several times in this context, see for example Helium 8K-Dynamics.

By the way, not a word is (yet) said about the hardware requirements for post-processing. When the first manifold models should be available is also still unclear -- the development process seems not to be completely finished yet: "It took years of prototyping and tight collaboration, but results so far point to a revolutionary camera built for a single purpose: to deliver next-generation stories.".

The following illustration shows what the 6 Degrees-of-Freedom are all about -- unlike simply stitched together 360° shots, which can't adapt to every movement of the head in perspective, because all existing views come from a single point of view, a volumetric video creates additional perspectives based on a calculated spatial model. The result is of course much more realistic -- i.e. more immersive.
