The paper is devoted to the analysis of the problem of document boundaries detection in images and in a video stream. The paper proposes an algorithm for obtaining the position of the document, consisting of very reliable segments of a document boundaries extraction and a construction of an intersection graph that satisfies the projective model of the rectangle. An online algorithm for selecting and integrating possible document positions in a video stream based on the Kalman filter is proposed. The analysis of possible modifications of the algorithm and their effect on the final result are provided. Evaluation of the quality of the document at ICDAR’15 Smartphone Document Capture competition’s dataset  showed a mean result of 95.5% in Jaccard index of projectively corrected document quadrangles and a 3rd place in the competition.
