  • Publication number: 20220019280
    Abstract: A system (30), method, and Head-Mounted Display, HMD, apparatus (31) for recording a video and playing back the video to a viewer in a Virtual Reality, VR, environment. A geographical area is recorded (51) with an omnidirectional video recording camera (34) by dividing the geographical area into a plurality of area portions and recording in separate video sections, each of the area portions while moving the camera in different directions. Time points in each video section are associated (52) with virtual locations of the viewer. At a time point providing the viewer with a choice of directions to proceed, the system receives (53) the viewer's choice and presents (54) to the viewer, a video section corresponding to the virtual location of the viewer and the desired direction of movement. The viewer's choice may be indicated by detecting a direction of the viewer's field of view or by receiving from the viewer, a response to a banner notification.

  • Patent number: 11044304
    Abstract: A selecting apparatus configured to select out of a set of content distribution network (CDN) entities a CDN entity for distributing content to a client device is described. Content distribution by a CDN entity is associated with a resource consumption, for example in regard of processing load. The selecting apparatus is configured to receive service performance reports for multiple CDN entities of the set of CDN entities and to select, upon determining from one or more of the service performance reports that a service performance of a first CDN entity is above a first result, a second CDN entity for content distribution to a client device. The selection is performed subject to the constraints that a service performance of the second CDN entity is below a second threshold and resource consumption in regard of the second CDN entity is lower than a resource consumption in regard of the first CDN entity.

  • Patent number: 10999621
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to synchronizing the rendering of video frames included in media file segments with the rendering of auxiliary media. A method implementation of this technique comprises the step of determining, from a sequence of media file segments, a sub-sequence of media file segments, wherein rendering of the sub-sequence is to be overlaid by rendering of auxiliary media starting in a first media file segment of the sub-sequence. The method further comprises determining control information enabling a media client to determine how much rendering of the auxiliary media has progressed upon rendering of each media file segment of the sub-sequence, and initiating a tagging of the media file segments of the sub-sequence with the control information.
