Iris is LightAct’s computer vision technology. It consists of one or several Power over Ethernet machine vision cameras that have been pre-calibrated by LightAct. You can use Iris to calibrate your projectors faster and much more accurately.
The general workflow is this:
Before purchasing Iris cameras, you can run IrisVirtual. IrisVirtual allows you to determine the number of Iris cameras you will need for your project as well as their location, rotation and lens type.
Once you have purchased your Iris cameras and have them connected to the network, you need to create Iris device node and connect it with the physical Iris camera on the network. Repeat this process if you have several cameras on the network.
Make sure all the cameras have a clear and sharp view of projection object. Adjust the focus ring on the cameras if necessary and parameters of the Iris device nodes.
Create Iris camera in the viewport and map it with the Iris device node you created in step 1. Map the 3D models of your projection objects to Iris camera(s).
Once the camera is calibrated, you can use it to calibrate all the projectors.
