  • Patent number: 10681332
    Abstract: A viewing direction may define an angle/visual portion of a spherical video at which a viewing window is directed. A trajectory of viewing direction may include changes in viewing directions for playback of spherical video. Abrupt changes in the viewing directions may result in jerky or shaky views of the spherical video. Changes in the viewing directions may be stabilized to provide stabilized views of the spherical video. Amount of stabilization may be limited by a margin constraint.

  • Publication number: 20200128223
    Abstract: Systems and methods for tagging portions a spherical video segment are provided. The spherical video segment may include visual content. User input indicating a moment in time in the spherical video segment and a viewing angle corresponding to the moment in time may be received. Tag information for the spherical video segment may be generated. The tag information may identify the moment in time and the viewing angle such that a subsequent presentation of the spherical video segment, proximate to the moment in time, includes a notification that the viewing angle is outside a display field of view based on the viewing angle being located outside the display field of view.

  • Patent number: 10536683
    Abstract: Systems and methods for marking an event of interest within a spherical video segment are provided. The spherical video segment may define visual content viewable from a point of view. User input may designate an event of interest within the visual content. The user input may indicate a moment in time in the spherical video segment and a viewing angle of the event of interest. Tag information associated with the event of interest may be generated. The tag information may identify the moment in time and the viewing angle such that a subsequent presentation of the spherical video segment, proximate to the moment in time, includes an alert notification that the event of interest is outside a display field of view based on the viewing angle being outside the display field of view.

  • Publication number: 20190230505
    Abstract: Setup information including credential information for a computing device to connect to a wireless communication connection may be obtained. A machine-readable optical code may be generated based on the setup information. The machine-readable optical code may convey instructions configured to cause an image capture device to, in response to the image capture device capturing an image including the machine-readable optical code, establish the wireless communication connection and authenticate the computing device to the wireless communication connection by virtue of the computing device providing at least some of the credential information included in the setup information. The machine-readable optical code may be presented on a display. The computing device may connect to the wireless communication connection by wirelessly providing at least some of the credential information to the image capture device.

  • Publication number: 20190082155
    Abstract: Systems and methods for marking an event of interest within a spherical video segment are provided. The spherical video segment may define visual content viewable from a point of view. User input designating an event of interest within the visual content may be received. The user input may indicate a point in time in the spherical video segment and a viewing angle of the event of interest. Tag information associated with the event of interest may be generated. The tag information may identify the point in time and the viewing angle such that notification of alert information is effectuated based on a determination that the viewing angle, proximate to the point in time during a subsequent presentation of the spherical video segment, is outside a display field of view. The alert information may indicate that the event of interest is located outside the display field of view.

  • Publication number: 20180352245
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for multi-encoder processing of high resolution content. In one embodiment, the method includes capturing high resolution imaging content; splitting up the captured high resolution imaging content into respective portions; feeding the split up portions to respective imaging encoders; packing encoded content from the respective imaging encoders into an A/V container; and storing and/or transmitting the A/V container. In another embodiment, the method includes retrieving and/or receiving an A/V container; splitting up the retrieved and/or received A/V container into respective portions; feeding the split up portions to respective imaging decoders; stitching the decoded imaging portions into a common imaging portion; and storing and/or displaying at least a portion of the common imaging portion.

  • Patent number: 10129464
    Abstract: Systems and methods for image compositing. Image capture devices may be used for documenting various activities. An image capture device may be configured to operate in image acquisition mode configured for image compositing. The image acquisition mode may be characterized by one or more of a given image acquisition interval, number of acquired images, camera shutter setting, and/or other settings. The image capture device may provide a user interface configured to facilitate acquiring an image sequence suitable for compositing. A live compositing preview may enable users to select one or more composite images for viewing and/or sharing.

  • Publication number: 20180307352
    Abstract: Spherical video content may be presented on a display. Interaction information may be received during presentation of the spherical content on the display. Interaction information may indicate a user's viewing selections of the spherical video content, including viewing directions for the spherical video content. Display field of view may be determined based on the viewing directions. The display fields of view may define extents of the visual content viewable as a function of progress through the spherical video content. User input to record a custom view of the spherical video content may be received and a playback sequence for the spherical video content may be generated. The playback sequence may mirror at least a portion of the presentation of the spherical video content on the display.

  • Patent number: 9973746
    Abstract: Systems and methods for presenting and viewing a spherical video segment is provided. The spherical video segment including tag information associated with an event of interest may be obtained. The tag information may identify a point in time and a viewing angle at which the event of interest is viewable in the spherical video segment. An orientation of a two dimensional display may be determined based upon output signals of a sensor. A display field of view within the spherical video segment may be determined and presented on the display based upon the orientation of the display. The display field of view may be captured as a two dimensional video segment. If the viewing angle of the event of interest is outside the display field of view proximate the point in time, a notification may be presented within the display field of view.
