  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20190343546
    Abstract: A minimally invasive tissue incision system for creating joint capsulotomies and releasing/incising various tissues, tendons, and fibrous band structures is described. The system contains a penetrating needle which is retractable so as to expose a cutting element, and which may be used as a penetrating needle to pierce the skin and other soft tissue structures. The cutting clement provided within the penetrating needle may be used to incise subsequent tissue structures after the initial penetration. The system facilitates such procedures by providing the cutting element with the confines of the needle which provides safe introduction of the cutting element directly to the site via the needle.

  • Patent number: 10440416
    Abstract: A system and method for providing quality control in 360° immersive video during pausing of a video streaming session, wherein a paused video frame may comprise a plurality of mixed quality video tiles depending on user gaze vector information. Under pause control of a video optimization node, 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. In one embodiment, a custom replacement video frame is generated having tiles with the same equalized video quality throughout the full 360° immersive video frame, e.g., an X-frame, is presented to the client device player for decoding and displaying instead of the mixed quality video frame while the streaming session is paused. In another embodiment, a still image based on the custom replacement video frame is provided to the client device to display instead of the mixed quality paused video frame.

  • Patent number: 10432970
    Abstract: A system and method for effectuating optimized 360° immersive video viewing experience. A media input stream is coded into a first set of bitstreams having different qualities, wherein each GOP starts with an intra-coded (I) frame followed by a set of frames including at least one predictive-coded (P) frame. The media input stream is also coded into a second set of bitstreams having different qualities, wherein each GOP starts with an I-frame followed by a plurality of X-frames, each X-frame having a slice header of a P-frame and comprising blocks of intra-coded data only (e.g., I-blocks). During playout of the 360° immersive video content, when a viewport changes during mid-GOP and/or if bandwidth allocation changes, higher quality data in an X-frame is muxed into the coded video sequence for providing enhanced viewing experience with minimum latency.

  • Patent number: 10423411
    Abstract: A processor includes a decode unit to decode an instruction that is to indicate a first source packed data operand that is to include at least four data elements, to indicate a second source packed data operand that is to include at least four data elements, and to indicate one or more destination storage locations. The execution unit, in response to the instruction, is to store at least one result mask operand in the destination storage location(s). The at least one result mask operand is to include a different mask element for each corresponding data element in one of the first and second source packed data operands in a same relative position. Each mask element is to indicate whether the corresponding data element in said one of the source packed data operands equals any of the data elements in the other of the source packed data operands.

  • Patent number: 10419738
    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 at any particular time. An angular separation is determined between the gaze vector and a directional vector associated with each tile location respectively corresponding to the array of tiles in the 3D display environment.
