Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2007070049A1] A method and system for creating event data including 3-D data representing at least one participant in an event and making the event data available to be served is provided. The system includes a communications network. A plurality of camera units are coupled to the communications network. The camera units are configured and installed at an event venue to generate a plurality of images from waves which propagate from objects in the event and includes the at least one participant in a plurality of non-parallel detector planes spaced about the event venue. The camera units include a plurality of detectors for measuring energy in the images in the detector planes to produce a plurality of signals obtained from different directions with respect to the at least one participant and a plurality of signal processors to process the plurality of signals from the plurality of detectors with at least one control algorithm to obtain image data. A processor subsystem is coupled to the communications network to process the image data to obtain the event data including the 3-D data. A server, which includes a data engine, is in communication with the processor subsystem through the communications network. The server is configured to receive the event data including the 3-D data from the processor subsystem and to make the event data available to be served.
