Video Stabilization

 

Videos from handheld devices often contain abrupt and irregular camera motion, which is a limiting factor for both automated and manual video analysis. Video stabilization aims at removing these undesired motions and transforming the input sequence to a stable, visually plausible video. State of the art algorithms focus on stabilization strength, robustness, processing speed and latency, requirements which are often contradictory. Regarding security, the stabilization module could act as a preprocessing step to every tracking or recognition algorithm.
