The demand for easy and reliable generation of 3D models of real objects and environment has witnessed traction in the recent past. 3D cameras are essential for capturing and displaying a 3D scene of the objects in an environment. With the growing adoption of smartphones across the world, 3D camera is expected to become an essential feature of smartphones. Modern smartphones offer improved interactive features and have now open up new possibilities for 3D modeling.
Technologies Used in Smart Phone 3D Cameras
Currently, most of the smartphones 3D cameras are designed on the basis of stereoscopic technology. Stereoscopic camera technology offers reliability, high quality of pictures, and precision while capturing 3D image of any object, hence, most of smartphone 3D camera vendors are deploying this technology to design 3D cameras for smartphones. Thus, it is one of the major driving factor for the growth of smartphone 3D camera market. Moreover, entertainment and media industry is witnessing intense surge in the 3D content High end smartphones from the leading manufactures integrate innovative camera with high resolution equivalent to hand handled cameras. In addition to this, smart phones are integrated with 3D sensors that can sense movements and enable smartphone user to capture precise dimensions of environment and objects. Because of these enticing features, smartphones are gaining popularity in the young generation which in turn contributing to the growth of market. However, factors such as high cost of smartphones integrated with 3D camera and compatibility issues are currently restricting the growth of the market.
