KDDI Develops A Sysytem To Convert Video/Photos Into Comic-Style Album

KDDI R&D Labs announced today that they developed a new system which can generate naturally arranged photo album in comic-style sequence of frames from video and photos.
Here is an example of the generated album from an wedding photos.

According to the release [J, pdf], it is humdrum to line up the same shaped photos.

It looks better if you put photos into the pre-defined variable frames, but only doing so may place a vertically long photo into a landscape box, may make a main person put out of the frame.

This technology will recognize portrait/landscape and persons, automatically curve them out and fit them in balanced frames.

They are planning to popularize the technology into a service to create comic-style photo album as a visible label of home-made videos and recorded TV programs.
