  • Publication number: 20160027420
    Abstract: A server system 500 is provided for receiving video clips having an associated audio/musical track for processing at the server system. The system comprises a beat tracking module for identifying beat time instants (ti) in the audio signal and a chord change estimation module for determining a chord change likelihood from chroma accent information in the audio signal at the beat time instants (ti). Further, first and second accent-based estimation modules are provided for determining respective first and second accent-based downbeat likelihood values from the audio signal at the beat time instants (ti) using respective different algorithms. A final stage of processing identifies downbeats occurring at beat time instants (ti) using a predefined score-based algorithm that takes as input numerical representations of chord change likelihood and the first and second accent-based downbeat likelihood values at the beat time instants (ti).

  • Patent number: 9240839
    Abstract: An array of light emitters is arranged single-file along an emitting surface of a transmitting device and emits light in a z-direction normal to the emitting surface. The array of light emitters is aligned along a y-direction normal to the z-direction. A lens assembly is optically coupled to the array of light emitters. The lens assembly includes at least one cylindrical lens and at least one aspherical lens. The lens assembly emits the light in free-space along the z-direction and has a first focal length in the y-direction and a different, second focal length in an x-direction. An encoder is coupled to apply a data signal to the array of light emitters. The data signal causes the array of light emitters to illuminate in a pattern that switches at a rate corresponding to a rolling shutter of a receiving sensor array.
