GOOGLE Pixel’s super stable video recording feature

Google’s Pixel 2 phones have a clever trick up their sleeve when recording video: they can use both electronic and optical image stabilization, delivering largely jitter-free clips even if you’re walking down the street. But how does it meld those two technologies, exactly? Google is happy to explain: it just posted an in-depth exploration of how this stabilization works. As you might guess, Google uses some of its machine learning know-how to incorporate both anti-shake technologies where many phones can only use one or the other. The system starts off by collecting motion info from both OIS and the phone’s gyroscope, making sure it’s in “perfect” sync with the image. But it’s what happens next that matters most: Google uses a “lookahead” filtering algorithm that pushes image frames into a deferred queue and uses machine learning to predict where you’re likely to move the phone next.

Google making some interesting moves over the last few years

Google has made a strategic investment in HTC, and is hiring its best phone engineers. After intense speculation and lots of pontificating by tech pundits, Google has made it official: it’s going into business with HTC. But instead of buying HTC’s phone business outright, Google has “signed an agreement with HTC, a leader in consumer electronics, [to hire] a team of HTC talent [to] join Google as part of the hardware organization. These future fellow Googlers are amazing folks we’ve already been working with closely on the Pixel smartphone line, and we’re excited to see what we can do together as one team.
