Going beyond megapixels, the Pelican array camera provides complete depth information of the captured scene, allowing users to refocus after the fact and perform an unprecedented range of edits. Focus on any subject, change focus (even on multiple subjects) after you take the photo, capture linear measurements, scale and segment your images, change backgrounds, and apply filters, all from any device.
The Pelican camera architecture is designed with no moving parts, which enables the user to take an immediate first shot, followed by very rapid sucessive shots. Every scene is captured in compleInvestors: Globespan Capital Partners

Pelican Imaging's advances in computational imaging have enabled a high-resolution light field camera in a mobile form factor.
At under 3mm thickness, Pelican's array camera is about 50 thinner than best-in-class current smartphone cameras. It is the first mobile plenoptic camera to capture video, 30 fps at 1080p resolution, and to capture still images at approximately 8 megapixels, with excellent image quality.
Pelican's technology has been featured in many press articles, including Forbes, MIT Technology Review, and the Huffington Post; read more about our recent coverage. |
