With the official release of the GenICam 3.0, integrators and end users will now be able to more easily deploy 3D cameras in vision systems, as the standard provides easier integration and access to 3D machine vision technologies.
This release of the GenICam standard—which marks the first time that access to 3D cameras is standardized—provides a means for communication and image acquisition between software and a camera. It also provides a controlled exchange which applies across various camera manufacturers and interfaces (GigE, USB3, CoaXPress, Camera Link HS). In addition, proprietary transport layers can make use of the new standardized GenICam 3D interface.
A new 3D lens adapter isborn at Kula (Reykjavík, Iceland) in the minds of Íris Ólafsdóttir, Stella Björgvinsdóttir, Birgir Birgisson, Ágúst Rafnsson, and Jón Arnar Tómasson (Did I say they are from Iceland?).
Kúla Deeper is a "3d lens" for DSLR cameras and Kúla Bebe is for smartphones. Both devices come with a software to convert 3D pictures and videos to almost any 3D format available. You can pre-order Kúla Deeper which is expected in April/May 2015 right now, with a 30% discount for a limited number of pre-orders ($105 instead of $150).
