  • Patent number: 10834315
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus having no synchronization support function by a time code and to cut down a system cost, in synchronizing respective moving images in the case of outputting and displaying moving images input from a plurality of imaging apparatuses through network transmission. A vertical synchronization signal input from a particular imaging apparatus among a plurality of imaging apparatuses is used as a reference to select frame image data items from moving image data input from the plurality of imaging apparatuses, and the selected frame image data items are integrated into a single stream and sent. Even in a case where the plurality of imaging apparatuses captures videos asynchronously, it becomes possible to select, from the respective moving images, frame images with a small imaging timing difference on the basis of the vertical synchronization signal of the particular imaging apparatus.

  • Patent number: 10645258
    Abstract: Focal plane distortion is prevented from standing out in the vicinity of a joint when a plurality of captured images are stitched and synthesized. A plurality of cameras are provided. Each camera includes an image sensor that outputs a signal by a raster scan scheme. Phases of a vertical synchronization signal supplied to the image sensors of the plurality of cameras are respectively shifted according to information of gap amounts of captured images of the respective cameras from a reference position in a vertical direction. Even if there are gaps in the vertical direction between the installed cameras, positional gaps between the installed image sensors due to variations in individual camera main bodies, and the like, there are no lines with largely different capture times in the vicinity of a joint of a synthesized image, and focal plane distortion is prevented from standing out in the vicinity of this joint.
