    Default LaserCam: A brand new live webcam to laser projection application

    Nautilus Integration is proud to announce a new level of live laser interaction technology that has been in development for some time, called LaserCam. LaserCam allows you to project live webcam and other video feeds in real time through your laser projector. This technology taps into a video source such as a webcam or capture card connected device and, using your laser projector, projects a laser image that is representative of what your webcam or camera sees. This is not your ordinary low-resolution raster scanning technique nor yesteryear's jagged-edge video processing. The images are smoothly vectorized in real time and can be scanned at a fluid 30FPS rate on ordinary 30k galvos.

    With LaserCam you will be able to use your laser projector in an entirely new way - to display high quality live vector representation of a video feed during a show or concert. In a club, you can capture and display anonymized vector video of dancers that are on your dance floor in real time on your laser projection screen! You will also be able to use LaserCam to capture and record frame sequences for use in shows that do not involve a live video feed. With LaserCam Pro, you can capture areas of your desktop directly for video conversion and image conversion, all with live laser output and ILDA recording.



    Demo Videos:

    Ripple Demo Video, Xvid compressed 12MB

    SoftColoring Demo Video, Xvid compressed 17.4MB

    Laser Dance Demo Video, Xvid compressed 4.7MB (note that the camera used to record this video adds significant flicker which is not seen in real life)

    LaserCam opens the doors to live interactive laser projection as well as real-time frame generation techniques for shows.

    Features:
    * Display real-time laser video from a camera source
    * Export ILDA 0,1,2,5
    * Interactive Colorization (ripple)
    * Image-based colorization
    * Intensity shading (Pro version)
    * Capture webcam or other video input to ILDA file for use in shows
    * Firewire camera (DCAM/IIDC standard)
    * Real-time preview on screen and with laser
    * Supports all top-of-the-line DACs: RIYA, EasyLase, Moncha (QM2000 and Fiesta Controllers Pro version) EtherDream, Mamba, Lumax (Laserworld), OLSD, or Home-built EzAudDacs

    Suggested System Requirements for full processing:
    * Webcam, kinect, 1394 video, or similar video input device, or use desktop capture with Pro
    * Dual Core 2GHz processor
    * 1GB RAM (For recording)

    Suggested System Requirements for low CPU mode processing:
    * Webcam or similar video input device or desktop capture for Pro
    * Single Core 1.8GHz Celeron processor or better
    * 1GB RAM (For recording)
    * Dual core processor required for kinect 3D processing.

    Rigt now, no FB3 support because Pangolin has not released an API for accessing FB3. If that changes, it can be added. But don't hold your breath.

    The difference is the pro version supports the soft color feature and QM2000 (along with the other DACs) and it also supports direct desktop capture.

    If you want live FB3 support, request from your hardware provider that an API is released for the FB3 I'd be happy to add it.
    Until that time, you can record to ILDA and import that to your FB3 software, or get excellent performance from community supporting packages like RIYA, EasyLase, EzAudDac, QM2000, EtherDream, Moncha, Mamba, Lumax (Laserworld), or OLSD.

    Hi Dr. Lava,

    Can you also load a video movie from disk, or does it only support live streams ?
    I didn't fail !
    I just found out 10,000 ways that didn't work.

    Way cool!! Nice work Andrew. I had been thinking edge detection might be an interesting application. Your videos look very clean.

    Glad youall are liking it! It's certainly fun to use and amazing see yourself and others in laser. Right now LaserCam technology is all about live video, no avi file loading option; however I've tried pointing the camera at videos playing on the monitor and even the tv and the results are suprisingly good. So you could always do that.

    Also, if you have the need (such as FB3-only owners) you can run this without any DAC and use the Record to ILDA File feature, then load those files into your playback soft.
