Physical Tracking Systems (PTS)



PTS and Spheron are developing a case management system using the camera and SceneCenter Forensic software. This is an intelligent software system allowing virtual access to a Crime Scene site. It is a specifically designed visually based software database system, which provides an easy-to-use automated approach for documenting a Crime Scene. This is next-generation Virtual Site tour technology, which provides forensic professionals with an ability to revisit a crime location via a rich interactive display all from their desktops. It facilitates remote virtual location access whilst also offering a collaboration tool between multiple Police / Forensic staff, providing them with a communication method  in the most timely and cost effective manner.  The SceneCam in version 2.0.The SceneCam is able to capture 360º x 180º spherical images automatically in a single scan and produces 26 f-stops of dynamic range (32-bit per channel x RGB = 96-bit image data per pixel) and a clarity of more than 100 mega-pixels* in resolution (* when compared to a DSLR sensor). This SceneCam 2.0 Solution features an almost complete redesign & optimization to achieve additional features and benefits, some of which are:

• A newly designed power supply unit offers increased capacity from a single battery; it is rapid swappable, allows for capacity monitoring and can be used concurrently by both the camera and its lighting accessory unit ScanLight.

• The system has been updated to now support the Panasonic ToughPad, a powerful and fully ruggedised tablet giving users intuitive access to all operational controls; the clear display allows for a real-time onsite preview and inspection; form-factor, weight and uptime are improved.

• The new carbon-tripod is further enhanced to allow for an increased 3d-measurement accuracy; it now features a handy quick release camera head mount for rapid assembly, along with a new attachment- & locking-mechanism to mount the tablet.

• The entire Solution (Camera, Scanlight and all accessories) is packaged with 35% less size and 25% less weight - but continues to ensure safest transportation in the toughest of conditions.

 The SceneCam 2.0 is the fully integrated spherical capturing device, working with the SceneCenter Forensic software which is used within the SceneWorks division of SpheronVR; offering a complete solution portfolio for the production of virtual scene documentation and tailored solutions for areas such as Forensics, Security, Critical Infrastructure Protection and Industries such as Plant-Inspection, Construction and Surveillance.

PTS is working closely with  Spheron-VR AG, known globally as pioneers in HDR (High Dynamic Range) camera technology and experts in visual content management software.
