The interest for wide field of view panorama video is increasing. In this respect, we have an application that uses an array of cameras that overlook a soccer stadium. The input of these cameras are stitched together to provide a panoramic view of the stadium. One of the challenges we face is that large parts of the field are obscured by shadows on sunny days. Such circumstances cause unsatisfying video quality. We have therefore implemented and evaluated multiple algorithms related to high dynamic range (HDR) video. The evaluation shows that a combination of several approaches gives the most useful results in our scenario.
