EMCC Software in partnership with QinetiQ has developed SnapDVmobile for use on all Symbian camera phones. SnapDVmobile enables users to take 360-degree photographs. Images are captured from video frames and automatically interwoven via feature matching technology developed by QinetiQ. The result is stunning widescreen panoramas – all at the touch of a button from your mobile device.
Features of the program include:
- Single click
- Fully automatic
- Seamless frame overlap
- Simple to use
- Faster than image stitching
- Downloadable application
- Better quality than Photo-Stitching
Unlike photo stitching snapDV operates with only a single click by the user, and produces images free from badly stitched edges, from different shading on each frame, and from lighting variations and artefacts caused by people/objects moving in the field of view.
QinetiQ video mosaicing avoids the need to capture individual frames by hand and faithfully reproduces sweeping panoramas, group photographs and wide angled 'wish you were here' images - in the pub, on the beach, at parties etc.
