  • Publication number: 20210076022
    Abstract: Mathematical relationships between the scene geometry, camera parameters, and viewing environment are used to control stereography to obtain various results influencing the viewer's perception of 3D imagery. The methods may include setting a horizontal shift, convergence distance, and camera interaxial parameter to achieve various effects. The methods may be implemented in a computer-implemented tool for interactively modifying scene parameters during a 2D-to-3D conversion process, which may then trigger the re-rendering of the 3D content on the fly.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 8033909
    Abstract: A random selection program stored on an optical disc, which is played on an electronic device. The electronic device is coupled to an audio/visual output device. The electronic device includes a random number generator. The random selection program includes a random selection module and a program selector module. The random selection module is programmed to initiate the random number generator to generate randomly a selection. The program selector module is programmed to receive the selection and to initiate an audio/visual presentation that corresponds to the selection on the audio/visual output device.
