  • Publication number: 20200107003
    Abstract: A system and method for providing quality control in 360° immersive video during pausing of a video streaming session. In one embodiment, a paused video frame may comprise a plurality of mixed quality video tiles depending on user gaze vector information. Under pause control, the video quality of all tiles of the tiled video frame is equalized to a highest video quality corresponding to the quality of the tiles presented in a viewport.

  • Patent number: 10567780
    Abstract: A system and method for effectuating optimized 360° immersive video viewing experience. A media input stream is coded into a plurality of phase-encoded bitstreams in multiple bitrate representations with varying video qualities. Each phase-encoded bitstream that belongs to a particular bitrate representation includes a number (N) of frames with a specific GOP structure having a GOP size (p), wherein the plurality of phase-encoded bitstreams equals the GOP size. For each pth phase-encoded bitstream, N frames are encoded as follows: at least a first frame is encoded as an I-frame; and a frame at a frame position i, for 2?i?N, that satisfies {i Mod (GOP size)}=p is encoded as an X-frame that has a slice header of a P-frame and includes blocks of only intra-coded data, otherwise, that frame is encoded as a P-frame having blocks of predictive-coded data (P-blocks) with a P-slice header.

  • Publication number: 20200019291
    Abstract: A computing device is described that receives, from a source, a notification. The computing device determines content of the notification other than a quantity of notifications currently pending for the source of the notification and based at least in part on the content, determines a notification badge that reflects the content of the notification. The device displays the notification badge near a graphical element for launching the source of the notification. In reflecting content of the notification, the badge icon may facilitate efficient interaction with the computing device by resolving one or more ambiguities that would otherwise arise.

  • Publication number: 20200014903
    Abstract: A system and method for providing immersive video based on gaze vector information. A gaze vector is obtained from a client device operating to display a 360° immersive video asset to a user, wherein each video frame comprises an array of tiles projected on a 3-dimensional (3D) display environment viewed by the user in which the user is immersed, the gaze vector defining a gaze direction in the 3D display environment where the user is viewing (i.e., a viewport) at any particular time. Angular separations between the viewport and remaining portions of the video frame are used in selecting different video qualities of the 360° immersive video asset such that the viewport comprises a higher video quality than the remaining portions when displayed by the client device.

  • Patent number: 10499054
    Abstract: A point cloud encoder including an input interface to accept a dynamic point cloud including a sequence of point cloud frames of a scene. A processor encodes blocks of a current point cloud frame to produce an encoded frame. Wherein, for encoding a current block of the current point cloud frame, a reference block is selected similar to the current block according to a similarity metric to serve as a reference to encode the current block. Pair each point in the current block to a point in the reference block based on values of the paired points. Encode the current block based on a combination of an identification of the reference block and residuals between the values of the paired points. Wherein the residuals are ordered according to an order of the values of the points in the reference block. A transmitter transmits the encoded frame over a communication channel.
