We are very excited to announce that the World’s First Software-Defined 7.4 Megapixel 180° Video Camera and winner of the CES 2017 Innovation Award will be on show at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam this week, February 7-10
PanaCast 2s is a powerful software-defined video camera that enhances and extends the functionality of the PanaCast 2 panoramic camera. It delivers 7.4 Megapixel panoramic video with real-time video stitching, delivering a 180º wide by 54º tall field of view, with 5120 x 1440 pixels per frame, at 30 frames per second, with less than one frame latency.
The PanaCast 2s system comprises a PanaCast 2 device and the PanaCast Computer Vision Engine (PCVE) software – which contains the first real-time OpenCL video stitching pipeline and runs on standard processors – creates a scalable software-defined panoramic system.
The scalable software-defined architecture enables PanaCast 2s to support a wide variety of deep learning applications as well as edge analytics and edge computing. It allows PanaCast 2s to deliver 78% higher resolution and produces a natural-looking video stream without scale distortion. The 7.4 Megapixels enables 5x lossless digital zoom (i.e., you can zoom in 5x digitally without any loss of resolution).
The PanaCast 2s will be available in Q1 2017.
