Multiple Kinect Studies


This project investigates multi-camera setups using Microsoft Kinects. Active structured light from the Kinect is used in several scenarious, including gas flow description, motion capture and free-viewpoint video.

While the ability to capture depth alongside color data (RGB-D) is the starting point of the investigations, the structured light is also used more directly. In order to combine Kinects with passive recording approaches, common calibration with HD cameras is also a topic.

Reality CG

Scope of "Reality CG" is to pioneer a novel approach to modelling, editing and rendering in computer graphics. Instead of manually creating digital models of virtual worlds, Reality CG will explore new ways to achieve visual realism from the kind of approximate models that can be derived from conventional, real-world imagery as input.
