High resolution, wide field of view video generated from multiple camera feeds has many use cases. However, processing the different steps of a panorama video pipeline in real-time is challenging due to the high data rates and the stringent requirements of timeliness. We use panorama video in a sport analysis system where video events must be generated in real-time. In this respect, we present a system for real-time panorama video generation from an array of low-cost CCD HD video cameras. We describe how we have implemented different components and evaluated alternatives. We also present performance results with and without co- processors like graphics processing units (GPUs), and we evaluate each individual component and show how the entire pipeline is able to run in real-time on commodity hardware.
