OmniStream doxygen documentation added.

I started documenting the two new libraries, OmniStream [or OStream for brevity] and OmniStuff, that are coming out on Omnimeeting CVS [http://omnimeeting.cvs.sourceforge.net/omnimeeting/]. The docs are reachable here [http://omnimeeting.sourceforge.net/doc/index.html]. Expect more changes in the next hours/days.

Omnimeeting 0.3 is released!

Mainly intended for development purposes, this release shows a fresh new hardware acceleration plugin to convert omnidirectional videos to panoramic ones.
A new templatized architecture is given for Omnistuff library, which can now be embedded easily in other programs.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a try!

Omnimeeting: hardware acceleration added

After a little playing with Cg shaders language, I was able to perform an omnidirectional-to-panoramic video conversion on the fly.

This takes advantages from the newest hardware accelerated graphics cards.

Try the new demo!

You can download the binaries for windows 32bit here:

Omnimeeting: two new demos released!

We've done it!
Two new motion demos have just been released, one for linux and one for windows.

Omnimeeting is a multi-platform C++ videoconference program that uses libraries
such as LiveMedia, OpenCv, CxImage, WxWidgets to stream video with RTSP protocol via Internet.
It can receive a 360 degrees omnidirectional video and do a face-detecting/tracking.

We used some Omnimeeting's stuff and some OpenCv algorithms, like the motion detector,
to display a panorama view of the platform recorded by the omnidirectional camera.
Results are that people moving/walking around are detected and followed by a red rectangle.
This can be an useful tool to be used into video-surveillance frameworks for example.
This time the video source input is a BT848 frame grabber, but it can be easily
extended to catch up a webcam source.... read more

Omnimeeting 0.1 released!

This is our first public release!
Omnimeeting is both a video streaming software and an omni face-tracking/detecting software.

It comes with a gui but it's code is modularized so that an easy reusing of code for streaming or for omnistuffing can be made.

Get it a try and spread the word, we aim to build a library which processes every kind of omni-images [images taken by a 360° camera].
