The provision unit provides a content that is based on the amount of time required that is estimated by the estimation unit.
Abstract: An imaging control apparatus detects a gesture of a person in an image and motion information of the gesture. The imaging control apparatus firstly determines whether the detected gesture is a gesture requiring an angle-of-view change. In a case where the detected gesture is the gesture requiring an angle-of-view change, the imaging control apparatus secondly determines whether a time elapsed since the last time a gesture requiring an angle-of-view change is made is within a predetermined time. The imaging control apparatus generates a pan operation command to change an angle of view based on the second determination result.
