  • Patent number: 11056148
    Abstract: Technologies for cloud-based media search and editing include a video editor configured to build a media query and associate the media query with a dynamic content slot of a media program. When generating video output based on the media program, the video editor transmits the media query to a cloud analytics server and receives search results identifying one or more media clips produced by a number of mobile computing devices. The video editor may display a list of clips for selection by the user or may automatically include one of the clips in the output. The cloud analytics server transmits an acceptance policy defining criteria for acceptable media, based on the media query, to the mobile computing devices. The mobile computing devices configure capture settings according to the acceptance policy and may display a user interface to assist the user in capturing acceptable media. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 11024341
    Abstract: A clip of shots is uploaded to a conformance platform. The conformance platform evaluates the clip type and initiates shot boundary evaluation and detection. The identified shot boundaries are then seeded for OCR evaluation and the burned in metadata is extracted into categories using a custom OCR module based on the location of the burn-ins within the frame. The extracted metadata is then error corrected based on OCR evaluation of the neighboring frame and arbitrary frames at pre-computed timecode offsets from the frame boundary. The error corrected metadata and categories are then packaged into a metadata package and returned back to a conform editor. The application then presents the metadata package as an edit decision list with associated pictures and confidence level to the user. The user can further validate and override the edit decision list if necessary and then use it to directly to conform to the online content.

  • Patent number: 11017817
    Abstract: The present invention enables correct placement of an electronic mark on a frame of captured image data intended by a remote control apparatus performing monitoring. Monitoring image data with a time code is transmitted to an external device. A command (an electronic mark placement command, or the like) to which a time code value showing a command target frame in the monitoring image data is added is received from the remote control apparatus. Processing based on the command is performed on a frame corresponding to the time code value added to the command, among image data corresponding to the monitoring image data recorded on a recording medium.

  • Patent number: 10998007
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to methods, non-transitory computer readable media, and systems that can generate a context-aware-video-progress bar including a video-scene-proportionate timeline with time-interval sections sized according to relative scene proportions within time intervals of a video. In some implementations, for instance, the disclosed systems determine relative proportions of scenes within a video across time intervals of the video and generate a video-scene-proportionate timeline comprising time-interval sections sized proportionate to the relative proportions of scenes across the time intervals. By integrating the video-scene-proportionate timeline within a video-progress bar, the disclosed systems generate a context-aware-video-progress bar for a video.
