  • Publication number: 20190052859
    Abstract: A video processing unit and method for region adaptive smoothing. The image processing unit includes a memory and one or more processors. The one or processors are operably connected to the memory and configured to stitch together a plurality of video frames into a plurality of equirectangular mapped frames of a video. The one or processors are configured to define a top region and a bottom region for each of the equirectangular mapped frames of the video; perform a smoothing process on the top region and the bottom region for each of the equirectangular mapped frames of the video; and encode the smoothed equirectangular mapped frames of the video.

  • Patent number: 9280206
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-readable medium for providing feedback effects for an image. The method includes identifying one or more features in an area of the image. The method also includes mapping the one or more identified features to at least one of multiple modalities of feedback effects. Additionally, the method includes generating parameters for feedback effect output and storing the generated parameters in association with the image such that, in response to coordinates of an input of a user corresponding to the area of the image, a user interface associated with the image is configured to provide at least one of the multiple modalities of feedback effects to the user. The multiple modalities of feedback effects include one or more visual feedback effects, one or more haptic feedback effects and one or more audio feedback effects.
