Abstract
We are interested in generating novel video sequences from a ball's point-of-view to enhance an spectators experience in sports domains. Despite the challenge of extreme camera motion, we show that we can leverage the periodicity of spinning cameras to generate a stabilized ball point-of-view video. We present preliminary results of image stabilization and view synthesis from a single camera being hurled in the air at 600 RPM.

Keywords
