Pelican's advances in computational imaging are enabling a new frontier for consumers: to capture still images and video footage with depth information of the scene, which in turn enables users to perform a range of post-capture edits such as refocusing, selecting multiple objects of focus, measuring distance between any two points, or creating a depth map/3D model of any scene. Because images and videos are captured all in focus, you can't miss your photo. Pelican's camera is about 50% of the thickness of the best-in-class camera modules shipping in mobile phones today.
"In our video pieces, we are illustrating creative examples of our vision for depth-enabled features," said Pelican Imaging CEO and President Christopher Pickett. "The applications for this technology are endless. We're looking forward to working with our customers, strategic partners, and third party application developers to bring Pelican's mobile array camera to market in late 2014."
