Google Talk to add image stabilization for video calls

Tech aims to reduce shaky video

Google is reportedly preparing to improve its Google Talk services with image stabilization technology for video calling. The system is claimed to help compensate for scene motion from moving subjects or backgrounds. Incoming and outgoing video both benefit from the technology, which is also said to help maximize compression during encoding.

The Google Talk implementation utilizes video stabilization software produced by SRI, a nonprofit research-and-development organization credited with developing a variety of technologies ranging from the computer mouse to malaria treatments.

SRI suggests the stabilization software will be added to Google Talk applications for tablets running Android 3.0 or higher. It is unclear if the technology will also make its way to Android builds for smartphones. [via Mobile Burn and GigaOm]
