Abstract

In this work, a system for creation of 360° panoramic video from a low-cost 3-Camera rig is presented. To provide 360° coverage with 3 cameras, cameras equipped with fisheye lens are utilized. Fisheye lens introduces extra challenges in stitching videos from the cameras, due to considerable distortion near the borders of field of view. First, we calibrate each camera and extract mapping parameters to correct for the fisheye effect. Then, to speed up the process, these mappings are consolidated into the mappings calculated in stitching phase, to form the composite mappings. Finally, video sequences are read from cameras, warped using the composite mappings, and corrected for color uniformity to generate the 360° panoramic video.
