Abstract

Pitching trajectories in the scene of the catcher view are represented by computer graphics in many baseball contents. The catcher view scene that is generated with computer graphics cannot provide extremely realistic scene to viewers. To address this issue, this paper proposes a method that a real catcher view is generated by using an image which is acquired from a camera at the stand of a baseball stadium. Our experiments have demonstrated that transformed catcher view image is highly similar to a ground truth image of the catcher view. We acquired image data in a real baseball stadium.
