  • Patent number: 11195021
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to measure brand exposure in media streams are disclosed. An example method to determine brand exposures included in media content disclosed herein comprises determining whether a scene detected from a media stream corresponding to the media content matches a reference scene, identifying an expected region of interest in the detected scene based on information describing the reference scene when the detected scene is determined to match the reference scene and the reference scene is not specified to be a scene of no interest, and determining whether a reference brand identifier associated with the reference scene is included in the expected region of interest identified in the detected scene.

  • Patent number: 10445581
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to measure brand exposure in media streams are disclosed. Disclosed example apparatus include a scene detector to compare a signature of a detected scene of a media presentation with a library of signatures to identify a first reference scene, and a scene classifier to classify the detected scene as a scene of changed interest when a first region of interest in the detected scene does not include a first reference brand identifier included in a corresponding region of interest in the first reference scene. Disclosed example apparatus further include a graphical user interface to present the detected scene, prompt for selection of an area of the first region of interest in the detected scene, and compare the selected area to a library of reference brand identifiers to identify a second reference brand identifier included in the first region of interest in the detected scene.

  • Patent number: 9785840
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to measure brand exposure in media streams are disclosed. An example apparatus disclosed herein includes a brand identifier detector to compare first data associated with a first scene of a media stream with second data associated with a reference scene including a first brand identifier to detect the first brand identifier in the first scene of the media stream. The example apparatus also includes a measure and tracking module to combine respective locations of the first brand identifier in respective frames of a first sequence of image frames forming the first scene to determine a weighted location for the first brand identifier. The example apparatus further includes a report generator to report appearance data corresponding to the first brand identifier, the appearance data including the weighted location for the first brand identifier.

  • Patent number: 9519028
    Abstract: A system and method for use characterizing battery cells. Charging and/or discharging characteristics for each of a plurality of battery cells may be determined, the battery cells may be marked based on the determined charging and/or discharging characteristics, and grouped based on the marking—e.g., such as battery cells having similar or near similar charging and/or discharging characteristics are grouped together. Battery packs may then be assembled such that each battery pack would comprise only battery cells belonging to the same group (or “in-family”). The charging characterization may be based on voltage rise curve, which may be determined for each battery cell—e.g., based on sampling or recording during charging, at sufficient rate. Battery cells may subsequently be monitored, during use of the battery packs, to ensure that the charging or discharging does not change, and battery cells exhibiting change in characteristics may be manually or automatically removed from use.
