dc.description.abstract The number of three-dimensional displays available is escalating and yet the capturing devices for multiple view content are focused on either single camera precision rigs that are limited to stationary objects or the use of synthetically created animations. In this work we will use the existence of inexpensive digital CMOS cameras to explore a multi- image capture paradigm and the gathering of real world real-time data of active and static scenes. The capturing system can be developed and employed for a wide range of applications such as portrait-based images for multi-view facial recognition systems, hypostereo surgical training systems, and stereo surveillance by unmanned aerial vehicles. The system will be adaptable to capturing the correct stereo views based on the environmental scene and the desired three-dimensional display. Several issues explored by the system will include image calibration, geometric correction, the possibility of object tracking, and transfer of the array technology into other image capturing systems. These features provide the user more freedom to interact with their specific 3-D content while allowing the computer to take on the difficult role of stereoscopic cinematographer. en_US
