  • Patent number: 7804506
    Abstract: An image processing system for use in development and playback of interactive video. In a development mode of operation, pixel or video objects are selected in a frame by way of a development graphical user interface. The system automatically tracks the selected pixel objects in the preceding and succeeding video frames by determining range limits for various color variables of the selected pixel object to compensate for the effects in lighting changes and decompression effects. The system automatically locates pixel objects within the calculated range limits in the preceding and succeeding video frames and generates a pixel object file which identifies the coordinates of the selected pixel object in each frame. The pixel object file is linked to a data object file which links the selected pixel objects to data objects. The pixel object file and data object file, collectively “linked video files,” are created during a development mode of operation.

  • Publication number: 20030098869
    Abstract: A real time interactive video system for use in real time broadcasts as well as video on demand systems which requires no modification of a television set. In a real time broadcast application, the video content is broadcast for playback on a conventional television or monitor. Frames are extracted from the video content in predetermined time intervals, such as one second intervals, and stored in a directory on an Internet server. For example, for a 30 frame per second video source, one frame of every 30 is extracted and stored as a still image along with linked video files which link pixel objects with the stored frames to data objects, or other resource platforms. In order to synchronize the stored frames and linked video files with the real time video content broadcast, each frame is either numbered sequentially, or referenced by the time code of the frame from which it was extracted.
