  • Patent number: 11329984
    Abstract: A limited input device, such as a camera, is authenticated based on a request received from an authenticated application. The application can request an application server to provide the application with a one-time authorization code. The request includes the device identifier associated with the camera. The server stores an association between the one-time authorization code and the device identifier of the camera, and provides the application with the one-time authorization code. The application provides the camera with the one-time authorization code. The camera transmits a request for an access token to the server, the request for the access token including the one-time authorization code and the device identifier associated with the camera. The server verifies the device identifier associated with the camera with that associated with the one-time authorization code, and upon a positive verification authenticates the camera by providing the camera with the access token.

  • Patent number: 11330245
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for providing a frame packing arrangement for the encoding/decoding of, for example, panoramic content. In one embodiment, the frame packing arrangement utilizes overlapping imaging data so as to enable, for example, a post-decode stitching operation to be performed. The frame packing arrangement may utilize a number of projection formats, such as a cubemap projection, and may utilize any number of differing aspect ratios such as, without limitation, 4×3, 3×2, 4×2, 2×4 aspect ratios. Additionally, the overlapping imaging data may be positioned within the frame packing arrangement chosen so as to improve upon coding efficiency. For example, the overlapping imaging data may be positioned within the frame packing arrangement so as to emphasize image continuity. An encoder apparatus and decoder apparatus for use with the aforementioned frame packing arrangements are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11323603
    Abstract: Auto exposure processing for spherical images improves image quality by reducing visible exposure level variation along a stitch line within a spherical image. An average global luminance value is determined based on auto exposure configurations of first and second image sensors. Delta luminance values are determined for each of the image sensors based on the average global luminance value and a luminance variance between the image sensors. The auto exposure configurations of the image sensors are then updated using the delta luminance values, and the updated auto exposure configurations are used to capture images which are then combined to produce the spherical image. In some cases wherein updating the auto exposure configurations using the delta luminance values would breach a threshold representing a target luminosity for the scene, the use of the delta luminance values may be limited or those values may instead be discarded.

  • Publication number: 20220108559
    Abstract: A face located along a stitch line in a spherical image is detected by rendering views of regions of the spherical image along the stitch line. The spherical image may be produced by combining first and second images. A first view of a projection of the spherical image is rendered. A scaling factor for rendering a second view of the projection is determined based characteristics of the first portion of the face. The second view is then rendered according to the scaling factor. The use of the scaling factor to render the second view causes a change in the depiction of the second portion of the face. For example, the scaling factor can indicate to change the resolution or expected size of the second portion of the face when rendering the second view. A face is then detected within the spherical image based on the rendered first and second views.

  • Patent number: 11297241
    Abstract: A frame rate is synchronized to a detected cadence in order to generate an output image sequence that is substantially stabilized. In an in-camera process, a camera receives motion data of the camera while the camera captures the sequence of image frames. A dominant frequency of motion is determined and the capture frame rate is dynamically adjusted to match the frequency of detected motion so that each image frame is captured when the camera is at approximately the same position along the axis of motion. Alternatively, in a post-processing process, frames of a captured image sequence are selectively sampled at a sampling rate corresponding to the dominant frequency of motion so that each sampled frame corresponds to an image capture that occurred when the camera is at approximately the same position along the axis of motion.
