One feature I have been waiting a long time for, is the ability for cameras to take a photograph without having to worry about loss of information. Contrast Optical Design & Engineering is making that dream a reality. Their AMP Technology captures multiple exposures simultaneously, with a total exposure range of more than 17 stops! Their paper will be presented at the SIGGRAPH 2011 conference in Vancouver, on August 8th. Watch the demo after the break.
A fun video that introduces the AMP Camera Technology and gives a sneak preview of the GEN II camera features. AMP captures three images with the exact same exposure time, at the exact same moment in time. A custom blending algorithm is used to combine the images to produce HDR video. The AMP Camera Technology is a revolutionary way to capture video data and HDR is just the beginning of its capabilities. AMP is a trademark of Contrast Optical Design & Engineering, Inc. – Mike Tocci
Thanks for the tip Damian!
