  • Patent number: 10165274
    Abstract: An encoder for encoding a video stream or an image is described herein. The encoder receives an input video stream and outputs an encoded video stream that can be decoded at a decoder to recover, at least approximately, an instance of the input video stream. The encoder encodes a video stream by first identifying scene boundaries and encoding frames between scene boundaries using a set of parameters. For at least two different scene sequences, different sets of parameters are used, providing adaptive, scene-based encoding.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8947490
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods are provided for processing video. In one method, analog image information is acquired over an exposure period, and digital image information is generated from the analog image information at a frame period where the exposure period is greater than the frame period. In another method, stored characteristic information such as images of parties are compared to a received characteristic information. If there is a match, a communication link is established between the parties.

  • Patent number: 8917931
    Abstract: An encoder for encoding a video stream or an image is described herein. The encoder receives an input video stream and outputs an encoded video stream that can be decoded at a decoder to recover, at least approximately, an instance of the input video stream. The encoder includes an encoding logic reducing a color spectral resolution of the input video stream to a range of colors or color differentials similar to that recognizable by a human eye, whereby an encoding efficiency is increased by the color spectral resolution reducing.

  • Publication number: 20120195369
    Abstract: An encoder for encoding a video stream is described herein. The encoder receives an input video stream, scene boundary information that indicates positions n the input video stream where scene transitions occur and target bit rate for each scene. The encoder divides the input video stream into a plurality of sections based on the scene boundary information. Each section comprises a plurality of temporally contiguous image frames. The encoder encodes each of the plurality of sections according to the target bit rate, providing adaptive bit rate control based on scenes. If a video quality bar is met at a lower bit-rate, there is no need to encode the same section at a higher bit-rate since the quality bar has already been met.
