Photokina 2012: Kolor and Seitz partner to enhance the compatibility of their panoramic photography solutions

On the occasion of Photokina 2012, we are happy to announce our new partnership with Seitz! Here is the announcement:

COLOGNE, Germany. — Sept. 22, 2012 — Kolor and Seitz announce their partnership to enhance the compatibility of Seitz Roundshot VR Drive II motorized panoramic head and Kolor Autopano Giga image-stitching software.

Seitz Roundshot VR Drive II is a precise motorized panoramic head meant to automate the shooting of panoramic images, gigapixel panoramas and HDR photos.

Kolor Autopano Giga is an image-stitching application compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux that automates the stitching of dozens, hundreds or thousands of images.

The application now includes a dedicated import plugin for VR Drive II that pre-position the photos shot with the motorized head to guarantee an accurate stitching. Additionally, it enables direct creation of tone-mapped panoramas (HDR fusion) or 32-bit HDR images with simultaneous stitching and mixing of bracketed images.

A beta version of Autopano Giga 3.0 that integrates this plugin is already available for download on Kolor’s website.
