  • Patent number: 10701282
    Abstract: A plurality of frames of a video recorded by a video camera and depth maps of the plurality of frames are stored in a data storage. One or more target video camera positions are determined. Each frame of the plurality of frames is associated with one or more of the target video camera positions. For each frame, one or more synthesized frames from the viewpoint of the one or more target camera positions associated with that frame are generated by applying a view interpolation algorithm to that frame using the color pixels of that frame and the depth map of that frame. Users can provide their input about the new camera positions and other camera parameters through multiple input modalities. The synthesized frames are concatenated to create a modified video. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Publication number: 20190095670
    Abstract: This application is directed to dynamic control for data capture. A device may comprise a capture logic module to receive at least one of biometric data from a biometric sensing module, context data from a context sensing module or content data from a content sensing module. The capture logic module may determine if a capture scenario exists based on at least one of the biometric data and context data. The determination may be weighted based on an operational mode. If a capture scenario is determined to exist, the capture logic module may then determine whether to capture data based on at least the content data. Captured data may be stored in a capture database in the device (e.g., along with enhanced metadata based on at least one of the biometric data, the context data or the content data). The device may also comprise a feedback database including feedback data.

  • Patent number: 10192313
    Abstract: Systems, devices and methods are described including receiving a source image having a foreground portion and a background portion, where the background portion includes image content of a three-dimensional (3D) environment. A camera pose of the source image may be determined by comparing features of the source image to image features of target images of the 3D environment and using the camera pose to segment the foreground portion from the background portion may generate a segmented source image. The resulting segmented source image and the associated camera pose may be stored in a networked database. The camera pose and segmented source image may be used to provide a simulation of the foreground portion in a virtual 3D environment.

  • Patent number: 10134196
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to systems, apparatuses and methods to provide image data, augmented with related data, to be displayed on a mobile computing device. Embodiments of the invention display a live view augmented with information identifying an object amongst other objects. Embodiments of the invention may utilize other related data, such as 3D point cloud data, image data and location data related to the object, to obtain a specific location of an object within the live view. Embodiments of the invention may further display a live view with augmented data three-dimensionally consistent with the position and orientation of the image sensor of the mobile computing device.

  • Patent number: 9998723
    Abstract: Techniques related to filling hole regions in a disparity map are discussed. Such techniques may include generating approximated disparity values for grid nodes of an approximation grid having a lower resolution than the disparity map based on disparity values within outer hole contour regions circumscribing the hole regions. The hole regions may be filled with upsampled disparity values based on the approximated disparity values to provide a final disparity map.
