OVERVIEW

  • NAME: EIS
  • USAGE: electronic image stabilization 
  • HOW: it uses analysis and registration techniques

FotoNation’s EIS is a uniquely designed stabilization solution that is optimized for today’s system and performance requirements.

With high re-sampling bi-cubic quality up to 60 + frames per second frame rate, EIS stabilizes fully your smartphone videos by correcting for 6 degrees of freedom (rotation + translation) and for all distortions associated with rolling shutter (shear, jelly and stretching).

Supporting full frame corrections for resolutions up to 8K, EIS is a non-blocking, future-proof and hybrid-implemented software-hardware solution that can be configured via a small CPU component.

This allows EIS to improve the user experience with no trade-offs!

INTEGRATION

FotoNation Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) can be deployed in three modes, addressing different configurations and markets.

LOW LATENCY

This mode can be used for action camera real time streaming. The stabilized frame is available with 1/3 frame delay while the ideal stabilized trajectory is estimated.

REAL TIME

This mode is ideal for action camera and smartphone streaming. The stabilized frame is available with one frame delay while the ideal stabilized trajectory is estimated.

DEFERRED CORRECTION

This mode can be used for action camera, smartphone and drone real time streaming. The stabilized frame is available with a configurable number of frames delay while the ideal stabilized trajectory is known.

EIS can be integrated in a software or hardware form. In the case of hardware integration, the solution will be accelerated by our image processing unit (IPU) via the Distortion Correction Engine (DCE).

SOFTWARE IMPLEMENTATION

Uses built-in hardware (CPU + GPU)
Delivers the highest quality – up to full HD & 30 FPS*
Low power consumption**
Low Memory requirement

*compared with traditional methods while being directly dependent on platform
** computed using a 2.5 GHz AP on MSM897AC

HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION

Works with rectangular texture mapping for 2D image transformations
Native support for bi-cubic re-sampling
Scalable with input size and frame data
With several hundreds KGates and using only just few tens of mW, it can enable stabilization of videos at 4K resolution running at 60 FPS

computed for 40nm LP TSMC; other formats may increase gate-count and / or memory BW
