  • Publication number: 20050183089
    Abstract: A document is sent from a document server to a relay server in response to a document request from a client. A script is then extracted from the document and is separately stored in a script cache. Then, a script calling portion in the document is substituted with a portion for calling the script stored in the script cache. Then, the resulting document is sent to the client. With this arrangement, when the script in the document is called by the client, it is executed by a script execution device of the relay server.

  • Patent number: 6628713
    Abstract: The present invention generates coded data having always high image quality irrespective of the change amount of a picture. When a difference between two adjacent frames in inputted picture data is calculated as well as a motion vector between the above frames is calculated, and the picture data is encoded based on the difference and the motion vector between the above frames as well as the motion vector is encoded, a scene change in the above picture data is detected based on the difference between the two adjacent frames in the picture data, and the feature quantity of the picture data is calculated. If the above feature quantity exceeds a prescribed threshold value, the number of pixels of the picture data is reduced in a prescribed conversion ratio at the prescribed timing according to the detected scene change.

  • Patent number: 6621939
    Abstract: A scene description generating apparatus and method, an object extracting method, and a recording medium extract an object from an input image. Positional information on the extracted object is output. Based on the positional information, scene description information about a placement position of the object in a scene is generated. When the object is deformed, reference to the positional information is made, and the scene description information is generated in which the object deformation is reflected. Accordingly, the object is placed at a desirable position in the scene.

  • Patent number: 6504850
    Abstract: In the case where plural encoder outputs are encoded at variable bit rates and are multiplexed to carry out transmission thereof at a fixed or constant bit rate, the output bit rates from respective buffers are controlled on the basis of delay time &tgr;1 from the time when encoding bit rates of video signals Video 1, Video 2 of the respective encoders have been changed. Thus, the multiplexed bit rate is prevented from exceeding the capacity of the transmission path or causing an overflow of an encoder buffer.

  • Publication number: 20020059571
    Abstract: A user interface system includes a server which includes a scene description converter for converting an input scene description into scene description data having a hierarchical structure, based on an identifier that indicates a division unit for dividing the input scene description, in accordance with hierarchical information. A scene description delivering unit delivers the scene description having the hierarchical structure to a decoding terminal through a transmission medium/recording medium. A scene description storage device stores the scene description.

  • Publication number: 20020031188
    Abstract: According to the present invention, a scene description that conforms to the state of a transmission line or the processing ability of a receiving side can be transmitted. Consequently, occurrence of a drawback such as unexpected missing of part of a scene that is unintended to a transmitting side is avoided. Even when a transmission rate is changed, signals are decoded according to a scene construction that conforms to the resultant transmission rate. A change in information needed to decode signals is explicitly reported to the receiving side. This relieves the receiving side of the necessity of sampling the information, which is needed to decode signals, from the signals. A data transmission system consists mainly of a server that transmits a scene description which describes the structure of multimedia data to be used to construct a scene, and a receiving terminal that constructs the scene according to the scene description.

  • Publication number: 20020023269
    Abstract: A special playback controller receives a special playback request from a user. A data storage unit stores data. In response to the special playback request received by the special playback controller, a data converter converts the data stored in the data storage unit into special playback data according to the type of special playback operation. The special playback data converted by the data converter is transmitted to a decoding terminal via a multiplexer, a transmitter, and a communication line, thereby enabling the decoding terminal to perform the special playback operation.
