Small broadcast-quality HD cameras with wide-angle or fisheye lenses are both a practical and cost-effective solution for live sports and reality TV broadcasts, as well as a host of other applications including medical, forensics/security, concerts and other live events, covert wildlife image capture, electronic newsgathering, and more. Due to their compact size and lower cost, such cameras can be deployed with much greater flexibility than larger broadcast cameras to bring viewers new or unusual perspectives. Unfortunately, the wide field-of-view lenses typically used with such “micro-cameras” give rise to lens distortion and curvilinear perspective image artifacts resulting from camera positioning. To incorporate live video from HD micro-cameras into high-quality applications, broadcasters and production companies must be able to correct for these distortions in real-time.

  • Removal of Curvilinear Artifacts
  • Adjustment of Rotation
  • Virtual Camera Off-set
  • Optimization of Zoom
