Exploring DOF with PixelSense & the Canon EOS Utility

Around this time last year I made use of an MS Surface (MS PixelSense) Samsung SUR 40 to control a Camera using Canons EOS Utility. A Libec Swift Jib 50 and a Sony NX5E camera were used to capture the interaction with the MS PiexlSense table and transmit it to a series of projectors around the room.

The main idea behind the setup was to demonstrate the effects of Aperture & Focal Length on the Depth of Field. This time round however I took a HDMI output directly from the MS PixelSense table & fed it into the projection system of the lab. To establish the feed between the MS PixelSense & Projection System a HDMI splitter & 10 meter HDMI cable was used. The resulting image was outputted to 6 Epson Projectors and 2x 55″ NEC Displays around the lab. The following images below taken just before shutdown & tidy-up should give some sense of what the setup was like.

In addition we also spent some time taking a look at two sets of cineskates. You may also notice that some of the content shown on the MS PixelSense table looks to be some outdoor footage of a nice clear day. Had taken the class out the previous week to fly some Quad-copters around the campus, you can see some videos here & here as well as a flickr photo-set of images.
