Drimbarean Alexandru, Zamfir Adrian, Florea Corneliu, Albu Felix, Miss Dan, Steinberg Eran, Corcoran Peter, Prilutsky Yury: Detection and estimation of camera movement. Fotonation Ireland, Drimbarean Alexandru, Zamfir Adrian, Florea Corneliu, Albu Felix, Miss Dan, Steinberg Eran, Corcoran Peter, Prilutsky Yury, SMITH Andrew V, October 30, 2008: WO/2008/131438 (37 worldwide citation)

A digital camera includes an optical system, a main image sensor and a camera motion sensor for estimating relative camera-object motion during image capture. A processor estimates camera motion based on information obtained by the camera motion photo-sensor while the camera is exposed to an image o ...

Drimbarean Alexandru, Bigioi Petronel, Pososin Alexei, Steinberg Eran, Prilutsky Yury, Corcoran Peter: Optimized red-eye filter method and apparatus involving subsample representations of selected image regions. Fotonation Vision, Drimbarean Alexandru, Bigioi Petronel, Pososin Alexei, Steinberg Eran, Prilutsky Yury, Corcoran Peter, BOYCE Conor, August 18, 2005: WO/2005/076217 (33 worldwide citation)

A digital camera has an integral flash and stores and displays a digital image. Under certain conditions, a flash photograph taken with the camera may result in a red-eye phenomenon due to a reflection within an eye of a subject of the photograph. A digital apparatus has a red-eye filter which analy ...

Steinberg Eran, Bigioi Petronel, Corcoran Peter, Gangea Mihnea, Petrescu Stefan Mirel, Vasiliu Andrei, Costache Gabriel, Drimbarean Alexandru: Face searching and detection in a digital image acquisition device. Fotonation Vision, Steinberg Eran, Bigioi Petronel, Corcoran Peter, Gangea Mihnea, Petrescu Stefan Mirel, Vasiliu Andrei, Costache Gabriel, Drimbarean Alexandru, CONOR Boyce, September 12, 2008: WO/2008/107002 (30 worldwide citation)

A method of detecting a face in an image includes performing face detection within a first window of the image at a first location. A confidence level is obtained from the face detection indicating a probability of the image including a face at or in the vicinity of the first location. Face detectio ...

Corcoran Peter, Steinberg Eran, Petrescu Stefan, Drimbarean Alexandru, Nanu Florin, Pososin Alexei, Bigioi Petronelnel: Real-time face tracking in a digital image acquisition device. Fotonation Vision, Corcoran Peter, Steinberg Eran, Petrescu Stefan, Drimbarean Alexandru, Nanu Florin, Pososin Alexei, Bigioi Petronelnel, SMITH Andrew V, February 14, 2008: WO/2008/018887 (28 worldwide citation)

An image processing apparatus for tracking faces in an image stream iteratively receives a new acquired image from the image stream, the image potentially including one or more face regions. The acquired image is sub-sampled (1 12) at a specified resolution to provide a sub-sampled image. An integra ...

Steinberg Eran, Bigioi Petronel, Zamfir Adrian, Drimbarean Alexandru, Corcoran Peter: Digital image enhancement with reference images. Fotonation Ireland, Steinberg Eran, Bigioi Petronel, Zamfir Adrian, Drimbarean Alexandru, Corcoran Peter, SMITH Andrew V, December 24, 2008: WO/2008/157792 (18 worldwide citation)

A digital image processing technique detects and corrects visual imperfections using a reference image. A main image and one or more reference images having a temporal and/or spatial overlap and/or proximity with the original image are captured. Device information, image data and/or meta data are an ...

Steinberg Eran, Drimbarean Alexandru, Nanu Florin: Red eye false positive filtering using face location and orientation. Fotonation Vision, Steinberg Eran, Drimbarean Alexandru, Nanu Florin, SMITH Andrew V, September 12, 2008: WO/2008/109708 (16 worldwide citation)

An image is acquired including a red eye defect and non red eye defect regions having a red color. An initial segmentation of candidate redeye regions is performed. A location and orientation of one or more faces within the image are determined. The candidate redeye regions are analyzed based on the ...

Drimbarean Alexandru, Steinberg Eran: Method and apparatus for automatically controlling the decisive moment for an image acquisition device. Fotonation Vision, Drimbarean Alexandru, Steinberg Eran, BOYCE Conor, November 6, 2008: WO/2008/131823 (13 worldwide citation)

A method is operable in an image acquisition device for controlling an instant of exposure. A face is detected in a first image a scene, and further images are acquired substantially of the same scene. When a new face is detected in at least one of the further images, then a final image of the scene ...

Albu Felix, Florea Corneliu, Zamfir Adrian, Drimbarean Alexandru, Poenaru Vladimir, Steinberg Eran, Corcoran Peter: Image processing method and apparatus. Fotonation Vision, Albu Felix, Florea Corneliu, Zamfir Adrian, Drimbarean Alexandru, Poenaru Vladimir, Steinberg Eran, Corcoran Peter, FR KELLY 27 Clyde Road Ballsbridge Dublin 4, March 26, 2009: WO/2009/036793 (9 worldwide citation)

An image processing apparatus is arranged to process a first relatively underexposed and sharp image of a scene, and a second relatively well exposed and blurred image, nominally of the same scene, the first and second images being derived from respective image sources. The apparatus provides a port ...
