The Parabolic Multi-Mirror Camera

The Parabolic Multi-Mirror Camera

Conventional multi-view camera setups are typically bulky, difficult to handle and not affordable for the average consumer. We present a one-piece single-camera multi-mirror imaging system made of low-cost off-the-shelf components. The system is relatively easy to set up and use while producing imagery similar to the output of a conventional multi-camera array. In addition to deriving the elementary theoretical foundations of our approach, we present a working prototype and captured footage and demonstrate the practical usability of the system with results for geometry reconstruction and view interpolation applications.
