The AWEAR 2.0 system consists of three computers with recording space for up to 7 hours of recording, two highresolution video cameras with fish-eye lenses, and four microphones connected to a high-quality audio digitizer. Due to the four lead-gel batteries, the autonomy is about 3 hours. The computers are networked and can be controlled wirelessly via an internet tablet. All is mounted on a rigid frame backpack to ensure portability. This paper describes the system, the procedure of its video calibration, and lowlevel processing of the acquired video data together with the results on sequence OLDENBURG. Muti-body tracking-bydetection is demostrated on sequence PEDCROSS together with an example of dense 3D reconstruction.
