360-degree video processing is complex and computationally intensive. By leveraging the GPU, VRWorks 360 Video SDK provides a high-performance, high-quality and low-latency GPU-accelerated implementation that can be integrated into 360 video workflows.
Real-time stereo stitching is particularly challenging. The basic process generally involves ingesting, decoding and calibrating multiple high-resolution streams, stereo stitching, and encoding. The entire pipeline has to be executed in real time while maintaining the highest level of image quality. To accomplish that, NVIDIA has developed a new set of motion based algorithms for superior-quality stereo stitching, optimized for real time. Using consecutive frames, the algorithms estimate the motion of objects in a video stream, noting how they match and move across a seam while accounting for stereo disparity.
