Abstract

One of the most common ways of capturing wide field-of-view scenes like arena sports is by capturing panoramic videos. Several experiments were conducted in order to devise an approach for driving a panorama video capture system in a completely automatic fashion. The target scene is an outdoor football stadium, where the light is uncontrolled and widely varying owing to the weather. This paper provides in detail various attempted approaches and the outcomes. Several papers propose global color correction for adjusting the colors, yet practically such a correction introduces new artifacts into the video streams. It is observed that visually pleasing results are obtaining by appropriate synchronization of exposure settings.
