The UCSD Vision
Laboratories and MERL
acquired several light fields for computer graphics and vision research. The datasets in this archive were used
in three recent papers: an ICCV 2007 paper on Synthetic Aperture Tracking 
, a SIGGRAPH 2006 paper on Natural Video Matting using
Camera Arrays 
, and an EGSR 2006 paper on Antialiasing for Automultiscopic Displays 
We are making this data publicly available to researchers. All the datasets may be used for academic and research purposes,
but are not to be used for commercial purposes without explicit permission, nor should they appear in a product for sale without our permission. If
you use this data in a publication, please acknowledge the UCSD Vision and Graphics Laboratories and Mitsubishi
Electric Research Laboratory, and please cite the appropriate paper as indicated for each dataset.
Each light field is available as a zipped archive of images in PNG format. We provide images that
are rectified and color and radiometrically corrected.
These light fields were acquired using an eight-camera array
and a linear translating gantry
