PG&O Customized Optical Mirrors Integrated into 360-degree High-Def Camera System
PG&O has provided the precision optical mirrors that are integrated into a revolutionary, 360-degree high definition (HD) video camera system developed by Social Animal (www.socialanimal.tv).
The system includes nine HD cameras which are paired with optically precise, trapezoidal mirrors, designed and manufactured by Precision Glass & Optics. The MAL203 mirrors are front surface aluminized, on select float glass. They are accurately positioned above each camera lens, fanning out around the circumference of the camera rig. The aluminum is overcoated with dielectric layers on the glass to enhance reflectivity and protect against heat, humidity, and abrasion. PG&O’s MAL series is ideal for any high quality mirror applications that require durability and high reflection. Specifications include standard visible reflection of greater than 94 percent at 550nm for 45 degrees, reflection is greater than 90 percent for S&P polarization at 550nm, 15 degrees through 45 degrees.
The SA360 video is the only system capable of providing a 360-degree panoramic view at 2K resolution. During playback, the viewer can decide which angle of the video they want to watch by scrolling left and/or right.
PG&O provides high performance optical components and thin film coatings for extremely demanding tasks for digital cinema, imaging, biomedical, military, aerospace, astronomy, broadcast, solar applications, and more.
