Hyperlapse for Windows Phone by Microsoft Research spotted on Windows Phone Store

Hyperlapse for Windows PhoneLate last year, Microsoft Research unveiled that they are working on an advanced video smoothing/stabilization technology, called Hyperlapse. Now an internal beta app has surfaced in Windows Phone Store, hinting beta launch soon.

Hyperlapsing is a technique used in multimedia to string together a collection of photographs or video frames in order to produce a cinematic experience; the technology is also more commonly known as a stop-motion time-lapse.

Microsoft’s Hyperlapse project was meant to remove camera shakes while capturing a video with a smartphone. The project initially started as a way to stabilize GoPro camera output and now the research team is near to its first beta release on Windows Phone.

The developed algorithm uses a 3-step process to produce exceptionally stable videos that play back in a single fluid camera sweep. It scans through hours of video footage, reconstructs the physical path by creating a 3D model, and then render the frames from the novel viewpoints on the optimized path and lastly generate the novel smoothed, time-lapse video by rendering, stitching, and blending appropriately selected source frames for each output frame.
