Projectors are the ultimate programmable light sources and have a tremendous potential to alter the appearance of objects, and even transform entire environments. Multi-projector systems that combine several overlapping projections onto arbitrary objects and geometry require compensation for both shape and color. The Procams Toolbox is an applied project on a software toolbox that can be used to create a range of applications for different projector deployments with varying requirements. The core of the toolbox is a set of standard software components such as projector calibration, camera calibration, screen calibration, intensity compensation and color correction. These components are modular and are plugged together in a universal application framework. The toolbox is being grown into a resource that is useful for any project installation, with research anticipated in projection onto 3D objects and dynamic scenes.
