3D laser scanning of capture scenario
3D laser scanning has proven its usefulness in many applications like civil engineering, architecture and archaeology. In the FascinatE system it is essential to know the precise 3D coordinates of all cameras and microphones. When the viewer of a FascinatE event selects an area of interest within the scenario, the displayed images and the presented audio signals should both focus on the same spot or area. A 3D laser scanner not only measures those coordinates, but also generates a static 3D model of the whole scenario enabling easier means of camera calibration and matching.
