Stereo rectification is the process of distorting an image such that the epipoles of both images are at infinity. If the epipoles are at infinity along the x-axis, then corresponding features must lie along the same y-coordinates. Using knowledge that correspondence feature's have the same y-coordinate allows for quick searches. Many stereo vision algorithm rely on rectification. The example below demonstrates rectification for a calibrated stereo pair. Note that after calibration the new camera view has a different set of intrinsic parameters.

Example Code

 * Shows how to rectify a pair of stereo images with known intrinsic parameters and stereo baseline. When you
 * rectify a stereo pair you are applying a transform that removes lens distortion and "rotates" the views
 * such that they are parallel to each other, facilitating stereo processing.
 * The example code does the following:
 * <lo>
 *     <li>Load stereo extrinsic and intrinsic parameters from a file along with a pair of images.</li>
 *     <li>Undistort and rectify images. This provides one rectification matrix for each image along with a new
 *         camera calibration matrix.</li>
 *     <li>The original rectification does not try to maximize view area, however it can be adjusted.</li>
 *     <li>After rectification is finished the results are displayed.</li>
 * </lo>
 * Note that the y-axis in left and right images align after rectification. You can click in the images to draw a line
 * that makes this easy to see. The curved image birder is an artifact of lens distortion being removed.
