Implementation with a widescreen movie

To evaluate our adaptive ROI system, a scene from the movie “Punch Drunk Love” was analyzed. A straight-cut fullscreen version was generated, and our adaptive ROI system was used to generate a pan-and-scan fullscreen version. The pan-and-scan version was analyzed by tracking the ROI midpoint as a function of frame number.

Roi midpoint tracking

To illustrate the mobility of the ROI midpoint, the following charts show the deviation of the midpoint from center after processing by motion, edge, and focus detection individually and combined. The first 4 charts show the unfiltered results of processing, while the last chart shows the filtered ROI midpoint using the combined processing.

Results of processing: motion only

Results of processing: edges only

Results of processing: focus only

Results of processing: combined methods, no filtering

Results of processing: combined methods, with filtering

Image results

The following images illustrate the functionality of our adaptive ROI system compared to a center-cut fullscreen image. The images are taken from the same scene as was used for the above analysis, in the Frame # 1000 to 2000 range.

Video Results

Here you can download a center-cut fullscreen and an Adaptive ROI fullscreen version of the scene above. The videos “with black bars” show a 16:9 video with black bars over the regions that would be cropped out – the ROI is still 4:3.

Note that the videos go further in the scene than the charts above.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
