  • Patent number: 10930317
    Abstract: An attention position detection section detects an attention position of a user to a reproduction image of moving image data. Image-related information indicating a position of a virtual division area in which the reproduction image is virtually divided and an importance level of the virtual division area is associated with the moving image data. A reproduction control section determines the importance level of the virtual division area corresponding to the attention position detected by the attention position detection section and controls a reproduction operation of the moving image data in accordance with the determined importance level. For example, the reproduction control section sets a larger number of images to be thinned in the reproduction operation as the importance level becomes lower so as to make the reproduction speed faster. The user can control the reproduction operation only by moving the attention position and easily perform the appropriate reproduction operation.

  • Patent number: 10872637
    Abstract: Certain aspects involve video inpainting in which content is propagated from a user-provided reference frame to other video frames depicting a scene. For example, a computing system accesses a set of video frames with annotations identifying a target region to be modified. The computing system determines a motion of the target region's boundary across the set of video frames, and also interpolates pixel motion within the target region across the set of video frames. The computing system also inserts, responsive to user input, a reference frame into the set of video frames. The reference frame can include reference color data from a user-specified modification to the target region. The computing system can use the reference color data and the interpolated motion to update color data in the target region across set of video frames.

  • Patent number: 10872231
    Abstract: Systems and methods for activity based recording by a smart camera system are described herein. Activity based recording provides a smart and automated method to enable and disable the camera recording, such that potentially significant events or activities are detected and recorded. A camera located in a physical space detects a triggering event and begins recording video and/or audio for a predetermined time period, resulting in a captured video. The triggering event may be detected by one or more sensors associated with the camera, including but not limited to, a camera sensor, a passive infrared sensor, and a microphone. A metadata file is added to the captured video. Certain video frames are added to the beginning of the captured video, resulting in a finalized video recording. The finalized video recording is transmitted and presented to a user computing device.

  • Patent number: 10859435
    Abstract: A laser detector apparatus (1) is provided, where a pixel array (3) is arranged behind a lens arrangement (4) such that distant objects (9) (in general, those at infinity) are out of focus at the pixel array. The image from the pixel array is evaluated by a computer processor (6) to detect such out of focus images which will be of a known size and shape (generally circular spots of known width). This can enable distant laser threats to be readily distinguished from nearby bright objects (10), whilst also protecting the pixel array from powerful laser sources (because the laser energy is not focussed to a point, on the pixel array it is less likely to damage the pixel array). It can also enable the wavelength of the laser to be accurately determined from the ratio of colours in the image of the laser spot, because it will typically not be a saturated image.

  • Patent number: 10863135
    Abstract: An information handling system selectively extends a camera from a housing along an extension axis to collect light along a plane substantially perpendicular to the extension axis. A mirror structure coupled over a light sensor redirects light from along the plane towards the extension axis and into the light sensor. Distortions of the visual image captured by the light sensor are corrected at the information handling system, such as with a digital signal processor integrated with the light sensor. In one embodiment, the mirror structure moves to direct light from only a portion of the plane towards the light sensor.
