Global sensor technology leader, Panasonic Electric Works, has recently released the ‘D-Imager,’ its novel time-of-flight type of 3D image sensor that focuses on various applications for gesture control.
The sensor, a result of many years of internal research, is well suited for markets such as video arcade games, out-of-home entertainment, interactive digital signage, immersive multi-media, movement based industrial machines, security markets that use anti-tailgating using detection or shape, and movement-enabled industrial machines.
The D-IMager helps in precise motion capturing of spatial objects that offer a broad field-of-view through processing high precision data.
It has an attractive and robust design that is able to blend with TV displays and can resolve 160x120 pixels, equivalent to 20 or 30 frames a second. It incorporates new generation features and is among the best range of imaging gadgets in the market. It also features a USB 2.0 interface and future models are in the development stage.
Panasonic Electric Works’ General Manager, Ken Omori, informed that Panasonic strongly feels that 3D sensing holds the key for developing a new technique of everyday interaction in the years to come. He explained that the Panasonic technology delivers the best commercially available performance and is confident oof its ability to develop on a mass scale various novel gesture controlled systems. Panasonic D-IMager is on sale world wide.
