Abstract

This paper describes an innovative compression method of panoramic images based on MPEG-7 descriptors. The proposed solution employs a detection of a series of individual video frame overlaps in order to produce concatenated panoramic images. The presented method is easy to implement even in simple devices such as low power consuming chipsets installed in remote cameras having limited power supplies. Under subjective tests it has been proved that the concatenation method allows for achieving lower transmission rates while sustaining picture quality.
