Abstract
This study proposes a flicker reduction method for 120 fps shooting under 100 Hz light fluctuation. In 120 fps videos, a 100 Hz light fluctuation causes a 20 Hz flicker, which is an aliasing artifact induced by its sampling frequency. In this method, the frame period of 1/120 s is divided into 1/150 s and 1/600 s exposure by using a double rolling shutter. Each pixel alternatively outputs 1/150 s and 1/600 s exposure signals which are readout by a readout circuit operated at double the rate of a normal 120 fps operation. A 120 fps signal with an exposure time of 1/100 s is obtained by summing three consecutive signals with exposures of 1/600, 1/150, and 1/600 s. This method is effective for flicker reduction even in the presence of several light sources with different amplitudes and phases. We implemented this method to an 8K camera and examined the flicker reduction effect for an 8K 120 fps video. As a result, the 20 Hz flicker was suppressed to less than one-tenth.
