Abstract

We propose a highly precise digital image stabilization (DIS) scheme for a hybrid stabilizing system. The stabilizing system adopts a hybrid method of using both optical image stabilization (OIS) and DIS. In the stabilizing system, OIS prestabilizes the original unstable image using gyro-sensors, and the resultant image obtained from OIS is post-stabilized using DIS to remove the residual jitters less than one pixel. The proposed DIS, which is newly designed using control-grid interpolation, can remove not only translational jitters but also rotational ones simultaneously. Experimental results show that the proposed hybrid image stabilizer achieves considerable performance improvement against conventional stabilization techniques.
