  • Patent number: 11514704
    Abstract: A video capture and processing system includes a memory configured to store a pose database. The pose database includes poses that indicate a start or stoppage in an event. The system also includes a processor operatively coupled to the memory. The processor is configured to generate a pose of an individual in a video frame of captured video of the event. The pose can be three-dimensional pose or a two-dimensional pose. The processor is also configured to determine, based on the pose database, whether the pose of the individual indicates a start or a stoppage in the event. The processor is further configured to control an upload of video of the event based on the determination of whether the pose indicates the start or the stoppage in the event.
