Wide range of options for flawless high-speed capture

Virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality all have similar challenges. Largely, these challenges come down to the generation of 3D content. They can require tight timing synchronization between image captures from multiple camera sources for an optimal experience. They can require excellent image quality under a variety of lighting conditions. Some applications must have images which are high resolution while still maintaining an appropriate frame rate. They can have camera setups which span large areas including stadiums so the simplest options are preferred for system installation and maintenance. They can require many more cameras to complete a system for an optimal experience.

Our camera models are designed to increase both the quality and the efficiency of any VR, AR or MR production. They utilize the latest sensors from Sony and Gpixel. Benefits include:

  • Ultra high data/frame rates
  • Many accessory and cabling options to cover any length
  • Camera network support and accurate multi-camera synchronization methods including PTP support
  • Multicast video technology
  • Low CPU overhead, low latency, low jitter using Myricom’s MVA and Mellanox’ VMA
  • Highest camera count per PC performance
  • Very competitive cost/performance
  • Industry acceptance due to IEEE and AIA standardization

Whether you are looking for a high-speed camera for volumetric capture, 3D mapping, or to capture a scene for your virtual reality, augmented reality, or mixed reality application, we have the camera solution to fit your needs.


One system which was recently shipped involved 3 servers and 48 Emergent Bolt HB-25000-SB-C 25GigE cameras running at 25MP and 60fps. See the video in-line for the initial software experience. This system records and saves 200Gbps (25GB) per server for a total of 600Gbps (75GB) across all 3 servers with ZERO data loss thanks to Emergent’s ZERO copy technology. All cameras are also synchronized to sub 1 microsecond through IEEE 1588 PTP v2. Our eCapture Pro software and eSDK are the glue to hold it all together. Simply connect the cables, power up, and run the software. In just a few clicks you will see your data come to life. Another such system has a single server with 36 Emergent HR-12000-SB-C 10GigE cameras running at 12MP and 60fps. We even provide stands and lighting where desired. Another video shows a system developed to perform high performance H.265 compression for storage of images to small SSDs as well as supporting RTMP for sending images to RTMP clients on the internet.

The above technology and services is also applicable to lower end systems such as NVIDIA Orin, Xavier, Clara AGX, etc. The above is also application to OEMs, system integrators, end-users, etc.

See the video in-line below for the initial software experience.

One can use our eSDK with all the same performance benefits. For inference applications, you can train your models with PyTorch or TensorFlow and then with a few clicks test them with an Emergent camera in eCapture Pro using our unique plug-in feature.
