Video Synchronization Using Temporal Signals from Epipolar Lines
Time synchronization of video sequences in a multi-camera system is necessary for successfully analyzing the acquired visual information. Even if synchronization is established, its quality may deteriorate over time due to a variety of reasons, most notably frame dropping. Consequently, synchronization must be actively maintained. This paper presents a method for online synchronization that relies only on the video sequences. We introduce a novel definition of low level temporal signals computed from epipolar lines. The spatial matching of two such temporal signals is given by the fundamental matrix. Thus, no pixel correspondence is required, bypassing the problem of correspondence changes in the presence of motion. The synchronization is determined from registration of the temporal signals. We consider general video data with substantial movement in the scene, for which high level information may be hard to extract from each individual camera (e.g., computing trajectories in crowded s...
