  • Patent number: 9138656
    Abstract: There is provided a system to provide a sequence of motion samples to a plurality of motion platforms, such as the plurality of seats in a movie theatre, such that the motion is synchronized with a sequence of images, such as a movie. In order to reduce the cost of the system, synchronization of a motion data signal with the sequence of images is centralized at a unique synchronizing unit. The synchronized sequence of motion samples is distributed to a plurality of motion platform hubs, each controlling and managing a reduced number of motion platforms.

  • Patent number: 8564339
    Abstract: A method and a system for measuring amplitude and phase difference between two sinusoidal signals, using an adaptive filter. The method generally comprises measuring a sample of an output signal of a system excited by a sample of a reference signal; using an adaptive filter and the sample of the reference signal to determine a and b coefficients that minimize a prediction error on the sample of the output signal, iteratively, and determining the amplitude and/or phase of the output of the system using the a and b coefficients.

  • Patent number: 8515240
    Abstract: There is described method for producing a computer file for inclusion in an audio bundle of a digital cinema file in which is encoded a multi-channel vibro-kinetic signal for controlling a motion platform. The audio bundle is for being transported over a digital transport link between a D-Cinema player and a motion decoder. The method comprises: obtaining a succession of blocks of vibro-kinetic samples from a vibro-kinetic file (e.g., a KineLink file); encoding binary data which represents the samples of the multi-channel vibro-kinetic signal into a sequence of monophonic PCM samples, according to a defined structure; and building a computer file using the encoded binary data, the computer file for incorporation into the audio bundle of the digital-cinema file, the encoded binary data for being transported over the digital transport link of the D-Cinema player to a motion decoder controlling the motion platform.

  • Patent number: 8515239
    Abstract: There is described a method and device for encoding a vibro-kinetic signal (e.g., motion codes) directly onto a video player media (e.g., a DVD player) and for streaming the vibro-kinetic signal to a dedicated motion decoder in synchrony to the audio and video, while the movie support media (e.g., a DVD, a computer file, streaming data from a network) is being played. According to an embodiment, the multi-channel vibro-kinetic signal is encoded within one of the audio channels transported by the HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) link. Two methods are proposed to perform the encoding: Direct LSB (Least Significant Bit) Injection; and Perceptually Modulated Injection. There are also described corresponding decoding methods and motion decoders.

  • Patent number: 8468280
    Abstract: The present description relates to the interfacing of a computer with a motion platform using a USB audio-class computer peripheral. The computer peripheral receives a digital audio-format signal according to the USB specification and provides a motion signal to up to four motion platforms. As the computer peripheral is a USB audio-class peripheral, no device-specific driver is required to play motion synchronously with a movie or a video game. The general purpose audio driver included in the operating system of the computer is advantageously used and the computer peripheral can alternately be used with any operating system comprising such a general purpose audio driver, such as Windows 2000, Windows XO or Mac OSX. The computer peripheral is seen by the computer as a USB sound card.
