Effective video stabilization with high video quality require careful tuning and calibration for a specific use case. However, this is something many chipset-based video stabilizers are not exactly designed for. Also, many chipset manufacturers do not have the time or resources to help you with this.
Flexible software enables calibration and tuning
The difference with video stabilization software is that it’s generally designed for customization. And most of all, video stabilization software vendors are usually experienced in helping customers tune and calibrate their video stabilizers for specific use cases. And this is no simple task considering that the motion sensors generally need to be adapted for each platform. If you work at a bodycam or drone company, you provide a highly specialized product with specific video stabilization requirements.
Your video stabilization algorithms deserve to be just as specialized and fit for purpose as your complete products.
