Aqueti Gigapixel Examined

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Nov 04, 2012

While gigapixel cameras are one of the hottest topics on IPVM, their dreadful frame rates have restricted them to niche use. Forget about one frame per second, those cameras are lucky to deliver a frame per minute. Now a startup is claiming 600 times faster frame rate with a completely different approach to gigapixel imaging. In this note, we dig into the technical details, pricing, performance and potential limitations.
