    High-Resolution, Real-Time-Geometry Video Acquisition System


Entry Number: 14


    “Can you capture the motion of a smile in 3-D?” This demonstration presents such a geometry video acquisition system that measures both geometries and positions of objects accurately. The data acquisition speed is 90 fps and over one quarter million points per frame. Acquisition, reconstruction, and display are simultaneously realized at 30 fps.
