360° Spherical Vision

FLIR makes spherical video a reality by providing affordable hardware and software packages that deliver high-resolution, 360° visual coverage.  All Ladybug systems perform the image acquisition, processing, stitching and correction necessary to integrate multiple camera images into full-resolution digital spherical and panoramic videos, live. The quality and flexibility of spherical video data make the medium ideal for applications requiring synchronization of video images. This revolutionary technology is now used for a wide variety of applications and solutions including terrain mapping, building management, news, event and sports coverage, entertainment, and virtual reality.  

Ladybug5+

The Ladybug5+ offers the highest quality in spherical 360° imaging and accuracy. It is able to acquire an impressive 8k30 or 4k60 of content. With its patented calibration and superior global shutter sensors, the Ladybug5+ has an accuracy level of 2 mm at 10 m. The Ladybug SDK provides a wide range of functionality, allowing users to record, process, and export spherical content with ease.

Superior Image Quality

Sony Pregius® global shutter CMOS sensors provide superb image quality across a wide range of lighting conditions without smear or blooming. And the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface makes 12-bit RAW imaging possible

Enhanced Image Quality with Post Processing

The workflow starts with Ladybug5+ capturing, compressing, and transmitting full bit depth 12-bit images. Users then use LadybugCapPro to apply white balance, gamma, and other image processing functions for maximum image quality.

Flexibility with Non Destructive Post-Processing

The capture and post workflow model allows users to maintain flexibility by being able to return to the original content and reapply post processing steps as desired
