Plenoptic imaging enables a light-field to be captured by a single monocular objective lens and an array of micro lenses attached to an image sensor. Metric distances of the light- field's depth planes remain unapparent prior to acquisition.

Abstract

Plenoptic imaging enables a light-field to be captured by a single monocular objective lens and an array of micro lenses attached to an image sensor. Metric distances of the light-field's depth planes remain unapparent prior to acquisition. Recent research showed that sampled depth locations rely on the parameters of the system's optical components. This paper presents PlenoptiSign, which implements these findings as a Python software package to help assist in an experimental or prototyping stage of a plenoptic system.
