The 4D video revolution
I-CONIC Vision AB is a new Swedish start-up company aiming to become the core of the 4D video revolution. In a 4D video you can move freely in the three dimensions of space, plus in the time domain. It is like a computer game where you move in an animated world – but with the exception that this a 4D model of the real world, created in real-time. You can enjoy it in real-time, we then call it 3DLive, or you can use it for replays or analytics afterwards.
This technology will reshape how video can depict the world! The TV world call the possibilities ‘free viewpoint TV’, and in the computer gaming industry some people are talking about ‘animated reality’.
I-CONIC’s 4D solution is based on simultaneous video from two or more drones, although it works also for videos from satellite, aircraft or on the ground. We have applied for a patent for 4D solutions based on moving cameras.
We’re planning to launch our first 4D software products in the second half 2020. But already early 2020 we will release our Video Stereoscope software, which transforms 2D video clips into 3D (stereo) video.
