> Recently we and others have gained deeper understanding of the 
> fundamentals of the plenoptic camera and Lippmann sensor. As a 
> result, we have developed new rendering approaches to improve 
> resolution, remove artifacts, and render in real time. By capturing 
> multiple modalities simultaneously, our camera captures images that 
> are focusable after the fact and which can be displayed in multi 
> view stereo. The camera can also be configured to capture HDR, 
> polarization, multispectral color and other modalities. With 
> superresolution techniques we can even render results that approach 
> full sensor resolution. During our presentation we will demonstrate 
> interactive real time rendering of 3D views with after the fact 
> focusing.
> Related technologies: Integral Photography, Light Field,
