I have been working on a vision based video tracking appliction prototype which can track subjects or activity with a wide angle or 360 degree cam, in real-time. At a wide angle, we capture at a higher resolution than needed for the finished product and crop/pan in software centering the subject. With 360, we can track a target infinitely around the point of capture. The feed can be processed in realtime so you could potentially throw the output up on a live screen. By inline processing this way we can eliminate a gimbal altogether.
