Zero Parallax is building a proprietary optical lens and camera system that solves the core problem in multi-lens image capture—the parallax error. Deemed impossible until now, the Zero Parallax camera lens eliminates the need for "stitching” that typically requires extensive resources.
The Zero Parallax lenses enable building extreme angle multi-channel image acquisition systems with ultra-high resolution and uniform pixel density at any field of view. The technology is intended for driverless cars, security, biometrics, architecture, remote control vehicles, VR production, prosumer and consumer cameras and broadcasting.
Zero Parallax lenses may be mounted together without parallax, eliminating the need for stitching
Uniform pixel density throughout the entire spherical image, that provides great detail for deep learning and pattern recognition
Enabling effortless streaming capabilities through multichannel no stich hardware
High-precision, proprietary Zero Parallax lenses are built to produce a high-sharpness spherical image while capturing the surroundings from a single point of view
Instant synchronization and no-stitch lenses require less processing power and contribute to minimizing latency for remote viewing
Extreme angle multi-channel lens system allows increasing data ponts for improved reliabilty of the data reading
Balanced exposure and ISO throughout an array of lenses is achieved by dynamic algorithms
Proprietary FPGA accommodates instant frame synchronization for convenient live streaming and easy post-production workflow
Extreme data rates allow recording of RAW data sets and full image control in post production
Zero parallax lenses provide high resolution data at uniform pixel density for easy readability by AI. It also provides a high number of data points at reduced processing cost.
The distortion free camera system provides uniform data for AI with at least of two points of reference for surrounding object recognition and at least two points of reference for object trajectory tracking in 3D space.
To be truly immersed in a Virtual Reality environment the image quality has to be seamless, which is why professional production studios spend significant amounts of resources to stitch images together. This painstaking process can take from weeks to months depending on the length of a video.
The Zero Parallax camera lens produces a perfect 360 viewing experience – completely eliminating stitching and makes seamless virtual reality content creation fast and accessible to everyone.
The Zero Parallax lenses enable achieving ultra-high resolution due to extreme angle multi-channel image acquisition capacity and uniform pixel density throughout the entire spherical image.
The technology is ideal for 180, 270 & 360-degree security cameras offering seamless video at significantly reduced cost and resources due to elimination of stitching.
The Zero parallax lens and camera technology has the capacity to provide real time “eyes” for remote controlled operations and enables to create situational awareness for task performance and provide measurable data for analysis.
In mining, the zero parallax technology offers large improvements in two main concerns within the industry – human safety and productivity of operations.
The Zero Parallax Lens and Camera System grew out of necessity, as we encountered the parallax problem making spherical videos for planetariums as early as 2012. This meant experimenting with existing cameras, creating custom rigs and months and months of manual stitching to create a seamless spherical video.
In that process, we made a discovery that lead to completely new way of thinking about optics for spherical image capture. With our team of engineers this concept has now been developed into a proprietary optics and hardware solution.
