Ultra Fast System Calibration
Spatially Augmented Reality
Automated Projection Mapping Software Platform
Summit Technology Laboratory has created the next generation software platform for Spatially Augmented Reality (SAR).
Introducing Artemis™, a unitary software that uses computer vision and complex algorithms to fully automate the 4D projection mapping pipeline. Artemis™ is agnostic to shape complexity or size of the projection surface, easily scales resolution via tiling and brightness via superimposition of multiple projectors, handles high degrees of ambient lighting and integrates seamlessly with Unreal Engine™ based image generators.
Since Artemis™ is centered around computer vision and complex computational methods to automate every function, the set-up time for a multi-projector system is measured in minutes not hours or days like traditional projection mapping systems. No more manual alignments, no more hand-tweaking grids, no longer constrained to basic shapes or expensive LIDAR scans. Artemis™ can capture the most complex of shapes to include 360 degree and is capable of front, rear or a combination. It works on static, dynamic and even deformable surfaces and can automatically generate the 3D mesh of the projection surface, at a density of your choice .
Ready in minutes
Our SW allows push-of-a-button calibration in a few minutes enabling quick and easy deployment and maintenance.
No shape input
Our SW automatically recovers the complex surface shape - from room-sized environments to life-sized statues to tabletop objects - eliminating the need of input of scanned surface geometry
Our SW is hardware agnostic allowing any number or kind of projectors -- ultra-short throw to long throw projectors, front or rear projectors, consumer or professional projectors.
Stack and tile
Our SW allows not only tiling of projectors to increase scale and resolution of the display, but also allows superposition of the projectors to increase the brightness.
Our SW achieves precision alignment with error in the order of less than a pixel on the display.
Our automated shape recovery allows view-independent projections that wrap in a wallpaper-like manner conforming to the underlying complex shapes
Seamless in color
Our SW patented per pixel color manipulation techniques achieves seamless color across the display even with consumer devices with low color uniformity
Our SW responds to user interaction by continuous tracking of laser pens or gestures via the feedback cameras or by integrating interactions made via mobile phone/tablet
“The STL software guarantees that we have a perfectly warped and blended 12K image every time we turn on the projection system, with just a few seconds of hands-on time. This means we don't have to worry about the picture quality if we change projector bulbs, bump the projectors, change lighting in the room, or move the screen. The camera setup works with our fixed cockpit and with our ambient lighting, so we don't have to change anything to perform a calibration.“
