Camera calibration is a necessary step in order to develop applications that need to establish a relationship between image pixels and real world points. The goal of camera calibration is to estimate the extrinsic and intrinsic camera parameters. Usually, for non-zooming cameras, the calibration is carried out by using a grid pattern of known dimensions (e.g., a chessboard). However, for cameras with zoom functions, the use of a grid pattern only is not sufficient, because the calibration has to be effective at multiple zoom levels and some features (e.g., corners) could not be detectable. In this paper, a calibration method based on two novel calibration patterns, specifically designed for zooming cameras, is presented. The first pattern, called in-lab pattern, is designed for intrinsic parameter recovery, while the second one, called on-field pattern, is conceived for extrinsic parameter estimation. As an application example, on-line virtual advertising in sport events, where the objective is to insert virtual advertising images into live or pre-recorded television shows, is considered. A quantitative experimental evaluation shows an increase of performance with respect to the use of standard calibration routines considering both re-projection accuracy and calibration time.

The second video, that contains the “+” sign captured at different zoom levels, is used to refine the calibration
parameters, in particular, the principal point (u;v) and the focal lengths fx and fy, and the radial distortion
coefficients k1 and k2 are considered. For regularizing these parameters an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) based approach [FANN Fast Artificial Neural Networks ] is used. Two different ANNs have been implemented, the former for managing the lower zoom levels, the latter for the higher ones.
