Pelican Imaging, the inventor of groundbreaking array camera technology for mobile devices, demonstrated new capabilities of its imaging platform at the Uplinq™ 2013 wireless ecosystem conference, held Sept. 3-5, 2013 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. As Qualcomm’s annual conference, Uplinq provides a cross-platform view of how to exploit the powerful capabilities of today’s leading mobile devices to produce the most compelling user experiences and cultivate the business connections essential to be successful in mobile.
Said Pelican Imaging CEO and President Chris Pickett, “The engineering team at Pelican has developed some cutting-edge algorithms to enable 3D image and video capture. We believe there are broad applications for depth-enabled imaging.”
Going beyond simple megapixel count, the Pelican array camera provides complete depth information of the captured scene, allowing users to refocus after the fact, create 3D models, and perform an unprecedented range of edits. At under 3mm thickness, Pelican’s array camera is about 50% of the thickness of the best-in-class camera modules shipping in mobile phones today.
