Image stitching or photo stitching is the process of combining multiple photographic images with overlapping fields of view to produce a segmented high-resolution panoramic image. Commonly performed with software, most approaches to image stitching require nearly exact overlaps between images and identical exposures to produce seamless results.
Hikvision employed front-end image stitching technology in its unique, all-in-one PanoVu Series Cameras to deliver 180- and 360-degree panoramas without using any additional servers. The rendered panorama has virtually no visible edges between its stitched images while the brightness and white balance are perfectly blended for a great user experience. So no graphical flaws hinder detailed imaging in the video.
Seamless image stitching is also the prerequisite for full pan, tilt and zoom functions across entire fields of view. Embedded in the PanoVu Series Cameras, seamless image stitching is used in a wide range of scenarios such as airports, harbors, transit stations, parking lots, stadiums and squares, where coverage of a 180° or 360° field of view is needed.
