  • Publication number: 20190114740
    Abstract: An image processing device includes a stitching processing unit that composites composition source images generated from captured images under a preset processing condition to generate a composite image, a screen generation unit that generates a screen and outputs the composite image to a display input device, a touch operation determination unit that determines a camera image region to be adjusted based on a detection result of a touch operation on the screen and determines an adjustment item according to an operation mode of the touch operation, and a processing condition setting unit that sets a temporary processing condition related to the camera image region to be adjusted. The stitching processing unit generates the composition source image from the captured image of the camera corresponding to the camera image region to be adjusted under the temporary processing condition and updates the composite image by compositing the composition source images.

  • Publication number: 20160234437
    Abstract: An image processing device includes a reference camera determiner that determines one among the multiple cameras, as a reference camera; an imaging condition acquisition unit that acquires imaging conditions relating to exposure and white balance which are set in the reference camera; an imaging condition setter that sends a command to set the imaging conditions relating to the exposure and the white balance, based on the imaging conditions in the reference camera, to cameras other than the reference camera; and an image composition unit that performs image composition processing on the multiple captured images that are acquired from the multiple cameras and that outputs the panoramic composite image. Thus, a boundary of an area of each composed image in the panoramic composite image that results from the composition is suppressed from being unnaturally conspicuous, and the captured image that is a reference is suitably displayed.
