Abstract

See full text

Video from a video camera can be integrated into a still image, with which it shares common elements, to provide greater context and understandability. Pre-processing can derive transformation parameters for transforming and aligning the video to be integrated into the still image in a visually fluid manner. The transformation parameters can then be utilized to transform and align the video in real-time and display it within the still image. Pre-processing can comprise stabilization of video, if the video camera is moveable, and can comprise identification of areas of motion and of static elements. Transformation parameters can be derived by fitting the static elements of the video to portions of one or more existing images. Display of the video in real-time in the still image can include display of the entire transformed and aligned video image, or of only selected sections, to provide for a smoother visual integration.
