Abstract
A mirror pyramid consists of a set of flat mirror faces arranged
around an axis of symmetry, inclined to form a pyramid. By strate-
gically positioning a number of conventional cameras around a mirror
pyramid, the viewpoints for the individual cameras' mirror images can
be colocated at a single point within the pyramid, effectively form-
ing a virtual camera with a wide field of view. Mirror pyramid-based
panoramic cameras have a number of attractive properties, including
single-viewpoint imaging, high resolution and video rate capture. Cur-
rently existing designs realize a single viewpoint within each mirror
