FIELD: physics; video technology.SUBSTANCE: invention relates to video surveillance devices. The result is achieved due to that, a camera (16) and a receiver (28) of a swiveling base are connected to each other so as to transmit a video signal. A web-server (50) sends a video signal beyond the border to a camera (16) and receives a signal from outside for remote control of the camera and a signal for remote control of the swiveling base. A control unit (40) controls the camera (16) in accordance with the signal for remote control of the camera. The signal for remote control of the swiveling base is superimposed on the video signal to be transmitted to the receiver (28) of the swiveling base using the video signal circuit (52). The receiver (28) of the swiveling base extracts the signal for remote control of the swiveling base from the video signal and controls rotation of the base (14) in accordance with the signal for remote control of the swiveling base. The given configuration can be used for transmission with superposition, and the camera and the swiveling base can be easily controlled through communication with the external environment.EFFECT: controlling swiveling base of a camera through a remote control signal.10 cl, 6 dwg

Adaptive image stabilisation // 2350036
FIELD: information technologies.SUBSTANCE: method and the device for stabilisation of the image containing set of shots is offered, and estimates motion vectors at level of a shot for each shot, and is adaptive integrates motion vectors to yield, for each shot, the vector of a motion which is subject to use for stabilisation of the image. The copy of the reference image of a shot is biased by means of the corresponding is adaptive the integrated vector of a motion. In one version of realisation of the invention, the perimetre of the data unit of the image is supplemented with the reserve of regulation which is subject to use for neutralisation of images, in other variant vertical and horizontal builders are handled independently, and plans of motion evaluation related to the MPEG-4 coder, used for evaluation of vectors at level of macroblocks, and histograms.EFFECT: possibility to delete astable motions at maintenance of a natural motion of type of scanning of the film-making plan, with the underload requirement for additional specialised plans and the underload magnification of computing complexity.26 cl, 4 dwg

Device for recording and reproducing an image, device for reading an image and method for correcting a chromatic aberration // 2321964
FIELD: devices for reading, recording and reproducing images, and method for correcting chromatic aberrations.SUBSTANCE: processing of correction is performed with consideration of diaphragm aperture size and object image height in image reading lens. The output signal of the camera signal processing circuit (4) by means of switch (5) is sent to block (6) for correction of chromatic aberration. Value of aperture of diaphragm (31) in lens (1) for reading image, and coordinates of pixel, relatively to which correction processing is performed, from the block (6) for correction of chromatic aberration is sent to block (10) for computation of transformation ratio. The length of focal distance of approach or withdrawal of lens (1) for reading image and camera trembling correction vector are sent to block (10) for computing transformation ratio, then transformation ratio is produced for each color to be dispatched to chromatic aberration correction block (6), where the signal, corrected in block (6) for chromatic aberration correction is compressed in data compression circuit (15) for transmission to record carrier in device (17) for recording and reproduction and unpacked in data unpacking circuit (18) for transmission to switch (5).EFFECT: increased quality of image, such as color diffusiveness.6 cl, 10 dwg

ethod (variants) and image stabilization system // 2308816
FIELD: engineering of systems for analyzing television images, in particular, for stabilizing an image in television images.SUBSTANCE: in accordance to the invention, first digital image and at least second image have a set of pixels, and each pixel has associated address for display and is represented by color. System user sets a color matching interval, or system uses a predetermined color matching interval, then in first digital image a pixel is selected, for example, representing an element in an image, which is either fuzzy because of element movement, or appears trembling due to camera movement, and is matched within limits of interval with a pixel of second image. The interval ensures compensation, required during change of lighting. After selection of a pixel in first image, it may be matched with all pixels in the second image, where each pixel of the second image, having matching color within limits of matching interval, is stored in memory, and pixel color is selected, closest to pixel of first image. Then pixel addresses are changed in second image so that the address of pixel positioned in second image, closest color-wise to the pixel in the first image, is assigned the same address on the display as the pixel of first image and the resulting rearranged second image is dispatched into memory for storage.EFFECT: creation of efficient image stabilization method.9 cl, 11 dwg
