For the first time, Kolor stitched videos together, using Autopano Server. As for static image stitching, the technologies available in Autopano were applied to video stitching. This creates a color-corrected final video with invisible seems between source videos.
The whole process is automatic; the only manual step is the video synchronization at the beginning of the stitching.
The projection mode is determined once for the whole sequence whereas the color correction adapts in real time.
For this experiment, 3 different SD camcorders were placed on a same rod and auto-stabilization was disabled. To minimize parallax errors, the subject should not be too close to the camcorders.
Smartblend ghost-remover can be improved, using temporal information.
The result obtained with this simple hardware enables to imagine very good results if using professional sequences (greater video resolution, accurate synchronization, global stabilizationâ€¦).
The 3 individual video sources and the final assembled video:
