  • Patent number: 10659815
    Abstract: Disclosed aspects may include, for example, maximizing a quality of experience when selecting encoding bitrates for downloading dynamically adaptive 360-degree panoramic video. Some embodiments include predicting a future orientation of a display region based on a first display region of the video, identifying predicted list of tiles for rendering the second display region, calculating a quality of experience from a plurality of encoding bitrates for the tiles in the second display region and one or more tiles in a margin area so that downloading the plurality of tiles at one or more bitrates is within estimated available embodiments, and downloading tiles for display.

  • Publication number: 20190387039
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, obtaining data indicative, for a frame of a video, of a field of view of a user; determining from a set of homogeneous tiles of the frame a subset of the homogeneous tiles that covers the field of view, wherein the set of homogeneous tiles has been constructed prior to the obtaining of the data; and merging at least a first tile of the set of homogeneous tiles and a second tile of the set of homogenous tiles into a larger tile, wherein the merging is based upon at least one parameter. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190379875
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, identifying FOV and OOS tiles of the video content. The FOV and OOS tiles are received from a video server. The FOV and OOS tiles are encoded using AVC and a first layer of SVC, respectively. Further embodiments include providing the FOV and OOS tiles for presentation on a display, detecting a change in a field of vision, and identifying other FOV tiles of the video content, which comprise a portion of the OOS tiles. Also, embodiments include requesting the portion of the OOS tiles and receiving the portion of the OOS tiles from the video server over the communication network, which are encoded using an enhancement layer of SVC and then provided, to the display, according the enhancement layer in conjunction with the providing of the OOS tiles according to the first layer. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190313119
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, identifying a field of view (FoV) within a first frame of a video that occupies a sub-portion of the frame. A size is determined by subdividing a portion of the video according to a tiling scenario. Tiles overlapping the FoV are detected, and an updated size is determined based on an encoded version of the tiles and compared to a reference size. Responsive to the updated size being less than the reference size, the reference size is adjusted to the updated size, the tiling scenario is adjusted according to an adjusted tiling scenario, and the determining of the size is repeated based on the adjusted tiling scenario. Responsive to the updated size not being less than the reference size, a preferred tiling scenario is identified based on the adjusted tiling scenario for tiling the video. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20190102944
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a process that analyzes image content of an immersive video frame and identifies a first group of segments of the immersive video frame based on the analysis. The segments collectively span an entire space portrayed by the immersive video frame and the first group of segments spans less than the entire space. A size of a display region of an immersive video viewer is determined that spans less than the entire space and a second group of segments is determined based on the first group of segments and the size of the display region. Transport of the second group of segments, spanning less than the entire space, is facilitated via a communication network to the immersive video viewer for presentation, without requiring transmission of all of the segments. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9380422
    Abstract: A mobile device includes a location module that determines a location of the mobile device. A controller receives the location of the mobile device as determined by the location module, compares the location of the mobile device to a plurality of stored locations, and provides a notification to a user of the mobile device in response to a determination that the location of the mobile device is within a predetermined range of a first stored location of the plurality of stored locations. The plurality of stored locations correspond to contact devices associated with respective content, and the notification includes information about the respective content associated with a first contact device of the contact devices in the first stored location.

  • Patent number: 6757719
    Abstract: Techniques and approaches that facilitate acquisition, transmission or retrieval of data for wearable devices are disclosed. These wearable devices are electronic devices, such as mobile computing devices or wireless communication devices, and are often small in scale and very portable. Wearable devices are able to communicate with one another to exchange information. Wearable devices are also able to exchange information with a portal server. Personal portals can also be provided for users of the wearable devices so that they can easily access information gather by their wearable device and subsequently transmitted to their personal portal.

  • Publication number: 20040113887
    Abstract: An interactive environment that is partially real and partially simulated. The environment may include a structure, at least one real, three-dimensional object, at least one computer-controlled display, at least one sensor, and a processing system in communication with the display and the sensor. The processing system may be configured to deliver a sequence of images to the display, the content of which may be a function of the interaction between the individual and the scene. The structure, real object and images on the display may cooperate to form a seamless and integrated scene. Construction in the form of a modular system is also disclosed.
