Post Magazine – 3dMD body scanner offers 360-degree capture

3dMDbody SystemLOS ANGELES — After demonstrating its first full body scanner at SIGGRAPH in 2000, 3dMD brings its latest generation technology to this year’s SIGGRAPH show. While the 3dMDbody System is capable of basic anthropometric shape capture for application in the areas of size and fit for clothing/accessories, ergonomic design, as well as diet and fitness monitoring, the system’s modular approach has enabled it to extend from eight to 22 camera-viewpoint systems with a 1.5 millisecond capture speed.

Specifications include: 360-degree capture of a body from head to toe; fast capture speeds at the highest of resolutions; one continuous point cloud produced from the four or eight stereo camera viewpoints, which eliminates the data errors associated with merging/stitching data sets together; and an option for simultaneous acquisition of geometry and high resolution texture, or geometry only.
