Definition

A non-single viewpoint system refers to a camera for which the light rays that enter the camera and contribute to the image produced by the camera, do not pass through a single point. The analogous definition holds for models for non-single viewpoint systems. Hence, a non-single viewpoint camera or model does not possess a single center of projection. Nevertheless, a non-single viewpoint model (NSVM), like any other camera model such as the pinhole model, enables to project points and other geometric primitives, into the image and to back-project image points or other image primitives, to 3D. Calibration of a non-single viewpoint model consists of a process that allows to compute the parameters of the model.

Background

There exist a large variety of camera technologies (“regular” cameras, catadioptric cameras, fish-eye cameras, etc.) and camera models designed for these...
