Recently, document and photograph digitization from a paper is very important for digital archiving and personal data transmission through the internet. Though many people wish to digitize documents on a paper easily, now heavy and large image scanners are required to obtain high quality digitization. To realize easy and high quality digitization of documents and photographs, we propose a novel digitization method that uses a movie captured by a hand-held camera. In our method, first, 6-DOF(Degree Of Freedom) position and posture parameters of the mobile camera are estimated in each frame by tracking image features automatically. Next, re-appearing feature points in the image sequence are detected and stitched for minimizing accumulated estimation errors. Finally, all the images are merged as a high-resolution mosaic image using the optimized parameters. Experiments have successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the proposed method. Our prototype system can acquire initial estimates of extrinsic camera parameters in real-time with capturing images.
