  • Patent number: 9992449
    Abstract: A method and a system for sharing in video images, captured by a video image capturing device mounted on a source user and having a wide field of view, with a destination user, are provided herein. The method may include: receiving video images and respective positions and orientations thereof, captured by the video image capturing device at the source location; receiving a request from a destination user equipment, to view video images captured at the source location, wherein the request includes a line of sight of the destination user, as derived by an orientation sensor of a destination user headset; mapping the request to a respective region of interest of the destination user based on the line of sight; cropping the video images based on the respective region of interest and further based on said respective positions and orientations; and transmitting the cropped video images to the destination user.

  • Publication number: 20130222551
    Abstract: An active vision based method and system for video capturing is provided herein. The method may include the following steps: illuminating a stationary outdoor scene containing objects, with a structured light exhibiting a specified pattern, at a first angle; capturing reflections from the objects in the stationary scene, in a second angle, the reflections exhibiting distortions of the specified pattern; analyzing the reflected distortions of the specified pattern, to yield a three dimensional model of the stationary scene containing the objects, wherein the specified pattern may include temporal and spatial modulation.

  • Patent number: 8212876
    Abstract: A night vision coloring system may color a scene by extracting the spectral signature of each area in a scene and matching the extracted signature with a predetermined database signature and associated color. The system may comprise a temporal or spatial filtering element that may typically allow the capturing of an image reflection through a plurality of spectral bands, thereby extracting the spectral signature of each area in the image. The color associated with the matched database signature may be used to color each area comprising the image.
