Projects
  • Gigapixel ArtZoom
    Gigapixel ArtZoom is an interactive panoramic image of Seattle that captures artists and performers in action throughout a 360-degree view of the city. You can zoom into the image to see dancers, acrobats, painters, performance artists, actors, jugglers, and sculptors—all appearing simultaneously within a single 20-gigapixel image. Visit the web site to explore the panorama and find out more.
  • Spin
    The goal of the Spin project is to enable users to capture photorealistic 3D models of objects using just an ordinary camera -- with no special lighting, sensors, or other equipment. Our approach works equally well for a mobile phone, a point-and-shoot camera, or a digital SLR camera. The results can be shared and viewed on a phone, in a web browser, or in a desktop application.
  • Cliplets: Juxtaposing Still and Dynamic Imagery
    Microsoft Research Cliplets is an interactive app that uses semi-automated methods to give users the power to create "Cliplets" -- a type of imagery that sits between stills and video from handheld videos. The app provides a creative lens one can use to focus on important aspects of a moment by mixing static and dynamic elements from a video clip.
  • Rich Interactive Narratives
    The Microsoft Rich Interactive Narratives (RIN) project aims to combine traditional forms of storytelling with new visualization technologies to create compelling interactive digital narratives. Experience sample narratives created using the technology at http://www.digitalnarratives.net. The RIN project is an undertaking by MSR India in collaboration with the Interactive Visual Experience group in MSR Redmond and the MSR External Research group.
  • Multi-Image Fusion
    We are all used to taking a single photograph of a scene. However, the photographer’s intent is often to capture more than what can be seen in a single photograph. By combining hundreds or even thousands of images we can create images that are much better than a single photograph. Computation to fuse the image set run either in the cloud or on a single machine can result in enhanced images and experiences of the scene.
  • Image Composite Editor
    Microsoft Image Composite Editor is an advanced panoramic image stitcher. The application takes a set of overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location and creates a high-resolution panorama incorporating all the source images at full resolution. The stitched panorama can be saved in a wide variety of formats, from common formats like JPEG and TIFF to multi-resolution tiled formats like HD View and Silverlight Deep Zoom.
  • HD View SL
    HD View SL is a Silverlight viewer for panoramic images. It's used to view panoramas that have been stitched by Image Composite Editor (ICE). While not as powerful as the HD View browser plugin, HD View SL offers the following features: support for multiple platforms and browsers; smooth panning and zooming; wrap-around display of 360° panoramas; and a shared-source implementation.
  • HD View
    HD View is a web browser plugin for viewing high-resolution panoramas and high-dynamic-range images. HD View leverages graphics hardware to achieve smooth panning and zooming while providing adaptive tone mapping, color correction, and a variety of image projections.
