Designing VR video camera systems, Brian Cabral, Facebook, Inc. (United States)

Brian Cabral is Director of Engineering at Facebook, leading the Surround 360 VR camera team, specializing in computational photography, computer vision, and computer graphics. He has published a number of papers in the area of computer graphics and imaging including the pioneering Line Integral Convolution algorithm. Cabral discusses developing Facebook Surround 360, an open, high-quality 3D-360 video capture system. VR video capture systems are composed of multiple optical and digital components - all of which must operate as if they are one seamless optical system. The design of VR video cameras, optical choices, SNR, etc., require a new set of technologies and engineering approaches, with tight coupling to the computational system components.

ERVR-098 VR journeys from the dark ages to a bright future, Gregory Dawe, University of California, San Diego (United States)

Gregory Dawe, the design engineer who made many iterations of CAVE systems possible, will share his perspective on the progression of virtual reality from the first CRT based CAVE system and how it was enhanced during the digital projector era to where we are now with present day flat panel systems. He will discuss the technological quest to improve brightness, resolution and contrast in the crusade to exceed human acuity.
