Ph.D. University of Virginia 2011. Michael Holroyd's research explores new ways of creating digital models from real-world objects that exhibit complex shape and appearance. His publications include new techniques for efficient editing and analysis of these models, as well as fabrication techniques using emerging 3D printing technologies.
Ph.D. Princeton University 2006. Jason Lawrence is a computer scientist, educator, and entrepreneur who is passionate about improving education technology and extending the reach of interactive 3D graphics and computer vision. His research focuses on real-time and global illumination rendering algorithms, 3D acquisition techniques, and representations of material appearance.
Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology 2005. abhi shelat has 50+ publications in theory of computation, algorithms, and cryptography. His research focuses on the theory of encryption, and secure multi-party computation.
This project will develop a system for indexing, searching, and visualizing large unstructured multimedia collections. Our horizontally scalable approach determines absolute position, direction of capture, and time for each piece of media. This metadata will facilitate navigation through map-based interfaces that support intuitive queries depending on time and location. Read more at nsf.gov.
This project will develop and commercialize tools for creating and displaying interactive 3D technical illustrations on portable multitouch devices. This research is focused on reducing barriers to entry for new users and developing methods for extracting 3D geometry from 360 image-sequences. Read more at sbir.gov.
PANOPTES is a photographic and video analysis engine for 3D indexing and analysis of massive streams of real-time media. By leveraging recent developments in computer vision and cloud processing, Arqball has created an automated system for indexing, analyzing, and navigating these huge collections of media, which supports analysts quickly finding footage based on nearby camera locations, viewing multiple videos synchronized in time, and tracking objects or people between multiple video streams.
Arqspin is a platform that allows anyone to create interactive 360 photography using their smartphone or camera. We leverage iOS, Android, and HTML5 to capture data, provide real-time editing solutions, content-management, and seamless viewing.
UVaM is an iPad museum catalog created for the University of Virginia Art Museum using Arqspin technology. Each object in this catalog can be rotated and enlarged using simple touch gestures. A detailed description written by UVaM curators accompanies each piece and chronicles its history and cultural context.
FocusTwist is an iOS app that lets you take refocusable images with your iPhone. It works by taking several images at different focus settings, and creating a "twist" that can be interactively refocused later.
Vinyet is an iOS app for creating short social videos, with support for timelapse video, stop-motion animations, and professional quality coloration.
Arqball is looking to hire researchers who specialize in computational photography and/or 3D scanning as well as experienced professionals who are proficient in both front-end web development and design. Contact us for more information or to send a resume.
