MetadataShow full item record
A digital panoramic camera system for producing digital panoramic images includes a camera body forming a linear optic path and which is rotatably mounted to a motor. An infrared cutoff filter is also provided along the optic path for filtering light which is then provided to a charge coupled device. The charge coupled device generates analog signals corresponding to color information transmitted by the light to an analog interface which tunes the analog signals. A series of pulses is provided to the motor and to an analog to digital converter, thereby synchronizing rotation of the camera body with the conversion of analog signals to digital signals within the converter. A digital interface unit is also provided which receives digital signals from the converter and provides converted digital signals to a computer for processing the signals into a digital panoramic image.
