  • Publication number: 20210281851
    Abstract: Systems and methods may provide for occlusion detection in frame rate conversion. Detecting the occlusion allows frame rate conversion to be more accurately performed. In some embodiments, one or more stereoscopic depth cameras may be used to determine the depth of a moving object to more accurately determine the occlusion. In some embodiments, the compression ratio may be adjusted to balance the frame rate and power to help ensure compliance with a power budget. In at least some embodiments, the motion of a camera may be passed from a 3D render pipe to an encoder to avoid motion calculation and thereby saving power.

  • Patent number: 11108987
    Abstract: An embodiment may include a display processor, memory to store a 2D frame corresponding to a projection from a 360 video, and a quality selector to select a quality factor for a block of the 2D frame based on quality information from neighboring blocks of the 2D frame, including blocks which are neighboring only in the 360 video space. The system may also include a range adjuster to adjust a search range for the 2D frame based on a search area of the 2D frame, a viewport manager to determine if a request for a viewport of the 2D frame extends beyond a first edge of the 2D frame and to fill the requested viewport with wrap-around image information, and/or a motion estimator to estimate motion information based on both color information and depth information. Other embodiments are disclosed and claimed.

  • Patent number: 11019263
    Abstract: Systems and methods may provide for capturing 360 degree video, and multi-resolution encoding, processing and displaying of the video based on a field of view (FOV) and region of interest (ROI) for a viewer. The ROI may be determined based on eye tracking information (ETI) and the video may be encoded for viewports within the FOV at a high resolution and for other viewports outside the FOV at a lower resolution. ROI in the video may be encoded at a high resolution and areas outside of the ROI may be encoded at a lower resolution. The ETI enables the selective display of one or more warnings based on the gaze of a user to improve the efficiency of the warning. 3D glasses having variable lens may be used to adjust the focal distance of a virtual display to match a virtual distance of an object based on stereo distance cues.

  • Patent number: 10882453
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer readable medium may include technology to enable optimal usage of automotive virtual mirrors. A gaze detector monitors a driver's eyes to determine if the driver is looking in the direction of a virtual mirror. If the driver is not looking in the direction of virtual mirror, all virtual mirrors are placed in a low operational mode. If the driver is looking in the direction of a virtual mirror, the virtual mirror being viewed is placed in a high operational mode and all other virtual mirrors are placed in the low operational mode.

  • Publication number: 20200304710
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses and methods may determine, on a per camera basis, an interest level with respect to panoramic video content, identify a subset of cameras in a plurality of cameras for which the interest level is below a threshold, and reduce power consumption in the subset of cameras. Additionally, technology may determine a projection format associated with panoramic video content, identify one or more discontinuous boundaries in the projection format, and modify an encoding scheme associated with the panoramic video content based on the discontinuous boundaries. Moreover, an encoded frame may be assigned to a temporal scalability layer that has a higher priority than a layer to which an asynchronous space warp frame is assigned. Additionally, technology may reduce the encoding complexity of a boundary between an active region and an inactive region in fisheye content.
