Abstract

Image vibration is a typical type of degradation that is difficult to restore in an automatic film restoration system. It is usually caused by improper film transportation during the copying or the digitization process. We have developed a method for automatic image stabilization consisting of two main steps: estimating vibration then correction by drifting the whole frame. Earlier stabilization algorithms are unsuccessful in cases of multiple motions and human interaction is necessary to achieve satisfactory results. The proposed technique is automatic and avoids false results for most difficult situations as shown in examples. The paper describes the technique used for motion estimation of regions; the selection of image regions for adequate vibration estimation; and the method of stabilization.
