Facebook donates its Surround 360 to ECE's VIPER Lab

A camera donated to Edward Delp, the Charles William Harrison Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, by Facebook will allow students in his Video and Image Processing (VIPER) Lab to capture images in 360 degrees. The Facebook Surround 360 uses 17 cameras – 14 around the edges, one on top and two on the bottom. Delp says the main capability of the camera is its ability to produce unique, high-quality and high-resolution imagery that can be used in research.
