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. It’s able to acquire an impressive 8k30 or 4k60 of content with its patented calibration and superior global shutter sensors, with an accuracy level of 2 mm at 10 m.
30 MP, 360° Spherical Camera Imaging System
The Ladybug5 spherical imaging system boasts an impressive 30 MP resolution covering 90% of a full sphere; a 5 Gbit/s USB 3.0 interface; and a ground-breaking post-processing workflow that provides high dynamic range, superb image quality and maximum user flexibility. It is an excellent choice for applications in GIS; vehicle-based photogrammetry; situational awareness; and entertainment solutions for lighting models, full dome projection content.

Post Processing Workflow for Dynamic Range
The workflow starts with Ladybug5 capturing, compressing, and transmitting full bit depth 12-bit RAW images. Users then use LadybugCapPro’s post processing toolbar to apply white balance, gamma, smear correction, and other image processing functions for maximum dynamic range.
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.
High Bandwidth Interface
Leverages USB 3.0 interface that makes 12-bit RAW imaging possible.
