Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
8189959 Image blending using multi-splines May 29, 2012
Multi-spline image blending technique embodiments are presented which generally employ a separate low-resolution offset field for every image region being blended, rather than a single (piecewise smooth) offset field for all the regions to produce a visually consistent blended image.
8160400 Navigating images using image based geometric alignment and object based controls April 17, 2012
Over the past few years there has been a dramatic proliferation of digital cameras, and it has become increasingly easy to share large numbers of photographs with many other people. These trends have contributed to the availability of large databases of photographs. Effectively organ
8121434 Multi-pass image resampling February 21, 2012
Multi-pass image resampling technique embodiments are presented that employ a series of one-dimensional filtering, resampling, and shearing stages to achieve good efficiency while maintaining high visual fidelity. In one embodiment, high-quality (multi-tap) image filtering is used in
7889948 Image stitching using partially overlapping views of a scene February 15, 2011
An "Oblique Image Stitcher" provides a technique for constructing a photorealistic oblique view from a set of input images representing a series of partially overlapping views of a scene. The Oblique Image Stitcher first projects each input image onto a geometric proxy of the scene a
7822289 Locally adapted hierarchical basis preconditioning October 26, 2010
A "Finite Element Preconditioner" provides locally adapted hierarchical basis functions for preconditioning large data optimization problems. For example, a few of the many typical graphics applications that make use of iterative optimization solutions include tone mapping, gradient doma
7778491 Oblique image stitching August 17, 2010
An "Oblique Image Stitcher" provides a technique for constructing a photorealistic oblique view from a set of input images representing a series of partially overlapping views of a scene. The Oblique Image Stitcher first projects each input image onto a geometric proxy of the scene a
7574017 Statistically comparing and matching plural sets of digital data August 11, 2009
The present invention is embodied in a system and method for statistically comparing a first set of digital data to at least a second set of digital data and matching the first set of digital data to appropriately corresponding portions of the second set of digital data. The first or
7499586 Photographing big things March 3, 2009
The subject application provides an architecture that facilitates producing a single image that can visualize a scene too large to depict from any single perspective view. These images can be stitched together on a 2-dimensional picture surface to form a multi-perspective image of th
7460730 Video registration and image sequence stitching December 2, 2008
A "Keyframe Stitcher" provides an efficient technique for building mosaic panoramic images by registering or aligning video frames to construct a mosaic panoramic representation. Matching of image pairs is performed by extracting feature points from every image frame and matching those
7457477 Digital photography with flash/no flash extension November 25, 2008
A system and method for improving digital flash photographs. The present invention is a technique that significantly improves low-light imaging by giving the end-user all the advantages of flash photography without producing the jarring look. The invention uses an image pair--one taken
7424218 Real-time preview for panoramic images September 9, 2008
A "Panoramic Viewfinder" provides an intuitive interactive viewfinder display which operates on a digital camera display screen. This interactive viewfinder provides real-time assistance in capturing images for constructing panoramic image mosaics. The Panoramic Viewfinder "brushes"
7302084 Statistically comparing and matching plural sets of digital data November 27, 2007
The present invention is embodied in a system and method for statistically comparing a first set of digital data to at least a second set of digital data and matching the first set of digital data to appropriately corresponding portions of the second set of digital data. The first or
6157747 3-dimensional image rotation method and apparatus for producing image mosaics December 5, 2000
The invention aligns a set of plural images to construct a mosaic image. At least different pairs of the images overlap partially (or fully), and typically are images captured by a camera looking at the same scene but oriented at different angles from approximately the same location or
6097854 Image mosaic construction system and apparatus with patch-based alignment, global block adjustme August 1, 2000
The system of the invention aligns a set plural overlapping images useful in constructing a mosaic by performing patch-based alignment of the set of overlapping images to produce a set of warped images, performing block adjustment of the set of warped images to produce a set of block-adj
6075545 Methods and apparatus for storing, accessing and processing images through the use of row and co June 13, 2000
Methods and apparatus for storing, accessing, and processing information representing images through the use of row and column pointers are described. By manipulating and/or generating new sets of row and column pointers, many image processing operations can be performed without the
6044181 Focal length estimation method and apparatus for construction of panoramic mosaic images March 28, 2000
The focal length estimation method and apparatus claimed in this application aligns plural overlapping images with one another for constructing an image mosaic. This is accomplished by computing a planar perspective transformation between each overlapping pair of the images, computin
6018349 Patch-based alignment method and apparatus for construction of image mosaics January 25, 2000
The invention is a patched based alignment method and apparatus which aligns a set of overlapping images to construct a mosaic image. The images are aligned by first finding an incremental deformation of one image relative to a 3-dimensional coordinate system tending to reduce regist
6009190 Texture map construction method and apparatus for displaying panoramic image mosaics December 28, 1999
The texture map construction method and apparatus of the invention constructs, from a set of overlapping images, a texture map divisible into plural faces. This is accomplished for each one of the plural faces by computing a texture mapping transform which maps between pixel locations
5987164 Block adjustment method and apparatus for construction of image mosaics November 16, 1999
The invention is embodied in a block adjustment method and apparatus which simultaneously aligns a set of overlapping images in order to construct an image mosaic. For each one of the images of the set, the invention performs the alignment by determining ray directions relative to a
5986668 Deghosting method and apparatus for construction of image mosaics November 16, 1999
The invention is embodied in a deghosting method and apparatus which locally aligns individual images in a set of overlapping images of a mosaic. This is accomplished by determining, at plural predetermined pixel locations of each one of the images, motions between the one image and
