Executive Summary

The authors describe a method for producing a smooth, stabilized video from the shaky input of a hand-held light field video camera - specifically, a small camera array. Traditional stabilization techniques dampen shake with 2D warps, and thus have limited ability to stabilize a significantly shaky camera motion through a 3D scene. Other recent stabilization techniques synthesize novel views as they would have been seen along a virtual, smooth 3D camera path, but are limited to static scenes. They show that video camera arrays enable much more powerful video stabilization, since they allow changes in viewpoint for a single time instant.
