A system is described for acquiring multi-view video of a person moving through the environment. A real-time tracking algorithm adjusts the pan, tilt, zoom and focus parameters of multiple active cameras to keep the moving person centered in each view. The output of the system is a set of synchronized, time-stamped video streams, showing the person simultaneously from several viewpoints.
