  • Publication number: 20020162110
    Abstract: A buffer device (1) receives unit information from a server (2), stores delivery destination information that relates to the destination of a delivery for each delivery destination, and also stores additional information that is to be added to the unit information. Based on the delivery destination information as well as unit attribute information that relates to time spans and attributes of the received unit information, the buffer device (1) then creates transmission information that instructs that the stored additional information is to be added to the received unit information and then transmitted. Based on the created transmission information, the buffer device (1) then adds the stored additional information to the received unit information and transmits the unit information to which the additional information has been added to the terminal (4).

  • Patent number: 5894333
    Abstract: A video. source, such as a VCR, plays back a motion image which is input by an image input section. Partition of scenes and creation of images representing scenes are performed by a catalog creation section. Additionally, at this time, an image representing the movement of an object appearing in the scenes is created. A representative image and a motion description image are initially stored in a catalog storage section and then displayed in catalog form by a display section under control of a display control section. Since not only the representative image of scenes but also the movement of the object in those scenes are displayed, the contents of the scenes are easily grasped.

  • Patent number: 5729471
    Abstract: Each and any viewer of a video or a television scene is his or her own proactive editor of the scene, having the ability to interactively dictate and select--in advance of the unfolding of the scene and by high-level command--a particular perspective by which the scene will be depicted, as and when the scene unfolds. Video images of the scene are selected, or even synthesized, in response no a viewer-selected (i) spatial perspective on the scene, (ii) static or dynamic object appearing in the scene, or (iii) event depicted in the scene. Multiple video cameras, each at a different spatial location, produce multiple two-dimensional video images of the real-world scene, each at a different spatial perspective. Objects of interest in the scene are identified and classified by computer in these two-dimensional images. The two-dimensional images of the scene, and accompanying information, are then combined in the computer into a three-dimensional video database, or model, of the scene.
