We as a team at EF EVE ™ everyday struggle with it. However, I am truly happy about our achievements to date. I would like to share with you some of them.
First of all we have tested, developed, failed and finally succeeded to have proprietary point cloud cleaning algorithms which greatly reduce the noise.
Second of all, we have developed a system which allows us to support 2 sensors on one PC. This greatly reduces the cost of volumetric capture set up.
Thirdly, we managed to compress the data so much that our proprietary depth codec allows us to stream live volumetric video into the web and VR, AR.
Some of the newest addition to this list is automatic sensor calibration. This has been an extremely difficult process and probably the one which constantly proves that there can't be enough precision. The saying that the more you eat the hungrier you get very well applies here.
However, it is well worth it. We currently allow people to have automatic calibration of up to 10 sensors on 5 computers. In other words get 4 sensors and 2 computers and you have the most affordable volumetric capture to date.
We know that not everyone is looking for precision and therefore released another of our products EF EVE ™ Creator. I compare it to Adobe Premiere when it just started but for volumetric video. The software allows you to edit VV, manipulate quality and has in-built VFX as well as OBJ or PLY sequence export. Also, we offer Platform with VR functionality and embeddable 3D web container for VV.
I am sure that I have forgotten to mention so many other things. However, when you put this all together it's quite a lot for such a small team. If any of you have questions or want to learn more about our journey please visit here.
