Modern video cameras normally only capture a single color per pixel, commonly arranged in a Bayer pattern. This means that we must restore the missing color channels in the image or the video frame in post-processing, a process referred to as debayering. In a live video scenario, this operation must be performed efficiently in order to output each frame in real-time, while also yielding acceptable visual quality. Here, we evaluate debayering algorithms implemented on a GPU for real-time panoramic video recordings using multiple 2K-resolution cameras.
