  • Patent number: 10187610
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus according to an embodiment of the present technology includes an input unit and a control unit. The input unit inputs a first image that is captured by a first imaging apparatus that sets a first imaging space as an imaging target, and a second image that is captured by a second imaging apparatus that sets a second imaging space different from the first imaging space as an imaging target and switched to/from the first image and displayed. The control unit outputs, when the first and second images are switched to each other, a switching moving image reflecting positional relevance between the first and second imaging spaces.

  • Patent number: 9298987
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes an input unit, an attention object detection unit, and a calculation unit. The input unit is configured to input a plurality of temporally continuous images taken by an image pickup apparatus. The attention object detection unit is configured to detect an attention object as an attention target from a first image which is an image taken at a first time point out of the plurality of images input. The calculation unit is configured to compare the first image with one or more second images which are one or more images taken at a time point previous to the first time point, to calculate, as a second time point, a time point when the attention object appears in the continuous plurality of images.

  • Patent number: 7030872
    Abstract: A computer based image data processing system reads image data from a framestore and processes this data in response to user commands. In order to effect these commands the user is provided with a graphical user interface. In the interface a first region is displayed in which a number of clips representing an output sequence are represented by clip regions on a timeline, along with transitions between the clips which are represented by edit regions. The interface also displays a pointer that is arranged to move over the timeline, and a second region representing input controls. The controls relate to transition operations when the pointer is located over an edit region, and relate to other functions when the pointer is not located over an edit region.
