With the explosion of camera sales in the 5 past years, a lot of old photographic techniques have again become popular. Among them, panorama creation is one of the most promising. Kolor is today the leader in stitching technology worldwide with the Autopano Pro, and Autopano Giga
products. We’ll present our products through the technology used as well as a quick live demonstration. Some uncommon usage of panoramic will be shown : gigapixels, sun path calculation, and webcam stitching. Another topic will be a brief coverage of the panorama industry. And finally we’ll present 2 cool projects : a new low cost motorized panorama head, the merlin / papywizard project and the panobook, a collaborative book of panorama image.
