How it works

With this kind of tech solutions available at $699, contents creator will be able to deploy AR experiences in an easy way. It works with proprietary software Lightform Creator and it is powerful enough to ensure performing AR projections thanks to a depth map generated by the built in scanner.

1. Structured Light Scanning

To scan a scene, the LF1 sends patterns to the projector over HDMI that the 4K camera simultaneously captures. These patterns display for ~30 seconds and generate the Depth Estimate Map.

2. Depth Estimate Map

Lightform automatically calibrates for the lens of the projector, generates a projector resolution depth estimate map, fills in holes, and wirelessly transfers the data back to your laptop in ~1 minute.

3. Instant Effects

Lightform Creator, the LF1 companion software, generates instant interactive effects that use the scan data and can be applied instantly with a single click of a button for stunning results.
