A Configurable Single-Axis, Multi-Parameter Lens Camera
SAMPL passively replicates an incident light field with an optical tree of half-mirror beam splitters. This allows multiple video sensors to share an optical center. At each sensor, we vary the imaging parameters like frequency response, aperture, image plane depth, and exposure time. This enables data capture for many applications using a single reconfigurable device. Many previous systems (e.g., [1, 2]) use a small number of single-axis sensors for a specific application. We believe SAMPL is the first to support eight sensors and the notion of reconfiguration.
