From the organizers: GigaLinc is an exhibition that allows participants to interactively explore large-scale panoramic images. Gigapixel images (100 times the information captured by a 10 megapixel digital camera) are digitally projected onto a large screen that allows viewers to navigate and explore the image in detail using Kinect-based hand-gestures, zooming in and out of areas of particular interest. Surround-sound adds to the multi-sensory experience. GigaLinc was developed by Samuel Cox for his Master’s degree in Digital Imaging and Photography at the University of Lincoln, UK.
Massive screens will display images captured using GigaPixel technology and the exhibit will include the Stanley Cup Game 7 crowd photo that has millions of online views to date. The instrument itself allows you to attach your camera (Canon, Nikon, Olympus, pocket camera, SLR etc.) and does all the panning work for you.
John Biehler had the chance to play with a GigaPan a few month ago and he took some great panoramic shots of the city from West Vancouver (click below to zoom-in and get the full effect).
In honour of this exhibit Ronnie Miranda, CEO of Active Computer Services and Gigapixel.com, is offering up a GigaPan EPIC 100 to one of my readers. This instrument, a $449 value, will help you capture amazing panoramic images with your camera. I gave away a GigaPan last January so if you didn’t win then, here’s how you can try again:
