  • Publication number: 20200193671
    Abstract: A system and method for creating 3D graphics representations from video. The method includes: generating a skeletal model for each of at least one non-rigid object shown in a video feed, wherein the video feed illustrates a sports event in which at least one of the non-rigid objects is moving; determining at least one 3D rigged model for the at least one skeletal model; and rendering the at least one skeletal model as a 3D representation of the sports event, wherein rendering the 3D skeletal model further comprises wrapping each of at least one 3D skeletal model with one of the at least one 3D rigged model, each 3D skeletal model corresponding to one of the at least one skeletal model, wherein each 3D rigged model is moved according to the movement of the respective skeletal model when the 3D skeletal model is wrapped with the 3D rigged model.

  • Publication number: 20190355021
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed regarding an e-commerce system that places customers into a plurality of clusters and tailors services provided to a customer based on the cluster in which the customer is placed. In one embodiment, the e-commerce system defines the clusters based on purchase history data for customers having sufficient purchase history data. The e-commerce system then places customers without sufficient purchase history data into one of the defined clusters based on demographic data for the customer and demographic data for the customers in the cluster.

  • Publication number: 20180220048
    Abstract: Systems and methods for foreground/background separation and for studio production of a FVV. A method includes projecting, onto objects in a filming area within a studio, a predefined pattern including a large set of features; generating, based on signals reflected off of the objects and captured by a plurality of depth cameras deployed in proximity to the filming area, a local point cloud for each depth camera; separating, based on the local point clouds, between a background and a foreground of the filming area; creating, based on the local point clouds, a unified point cloud; meshing points in the unified point cloud to generate a 3D model of the objects; texturing the 3D model based on the separation and images captured by the depth cameras; and rendering the textured 3D model as a FVV including a series of video frames with respect to at least one viewpoint.
