Petronel Bigioi, Senior Vice President of Engineering and General Manager at FotoNation, presents the "Digital Gimbal: Rock-steady Video Stabilization without Extra Weight!" tutorial at the May 2016 Embedded Vision Summit.
In this presentation, you will learn about new hardware solutions that can process video at up to 60 fps, delivering rock-steady video that is practically immune to platform motion and vibration. These solutions can be readily customized for your application to distinguish between large, deliberate motions of the imaging platform and smaller vibrations and oscillations that ruin video quality and disrupt post-processing operations.
A mechanical gimbal is no longer a necessary part of your design. The age of the digital gimbal is upon us, and FotoNation is making it possible. Whether you are designing drones, wearables, or a larger vehicular platform, learn how state-of-the-art, energy-efficient, GPU-free chipset solutions proven in the smartphone and action-camera markets can empower your video subsystems with real-time, high frame-rate, rock steady video, while also correcting for distortions created by wide-angle lenses.
