  • Publication number: 20240104793
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed to add augmented reality to a sub-view of a high resolution central video feed. In various embodiments, a central video feed is received from a first camera on a first recurring basis and time-stamped position information is received from a tracking system on a second recurring basis. The central video feed is calibrated against a spatial region encompassed by the central video feed. The received time-stamped position information and a determined plurality of tiles associated with at least one frame of the central video feed are used to define a first sub-view of the central video feed. The first sub-view and a homography defining placement of augmented reality elements on the at least one frame of the central video feed are provided as output to a device configured to use the first sub-view and the homography display the first sub-view.

  • Publication number: 20240085513
    Abstract: A process to partition a video feed to segment live player activity includes receiving, on a first recurring basis, a transmission of a central video feed from a first camera. The central video feed is calibrated against a spatial region represented in at least two dimensions that is encompassed by the central video feed. The process includes receiving, on a second recurring basis, a respective time-stamped position information from each tracking device in a plurality of tracking devices. Each tracking device is worn by a corresponding subject on the spatial region and transmits positional information that describes a time-stamped position of the corresponding subject in the spatial region. The process uses the received information and the calibration to define a first sub-view of the central video feed associated with a first subject. The first sub-view comprises a corresponding sub-frame associated with the first subject.

  • Patent number: 11918912
    Abstract: A process to track and provide positional information for display on a remote device includes receiving, on a first recurring basis, time-stamped position information of participant(s) in a competition. The time-stamped position information is captured by a telemetry tracking system during the competition and describes a time-stamped position of each of one or more corresponding participants in a predetermined spatial region. The process includes communicating at least a subset of time-stamped position information to the remote device on a second recurring basis. The remote device uses the time-stamped position information to overlay a representation of one or more of said participants onto a first virtual reproduction of at least a relevant portion of the predetermined spatial region to produce and display an instance of a compiled virtual scene that shows a respective position of each of the participant(s) on the first virtual reproduction of the predetermined spatial region.

  • Publication number: 20170320354
    Abstract: An adjustable T square alignment device for providing enhanced flexibility while cutting drywall or other planar objects. The adjustable T square alignment device comprises a blade defining a rigid, elongated structural body having an integral elongated sliding slot, a head defining a rigid structural member having a wide base portion and a narrow sliding portion, and a fastening system operative to both secure the head to the blade, with the sliding portion positioned in the sliding slot, and fix the head at a desired lengthwise position on the blade. In this regard, the head may be selectively repositioned along the length of the blade by sliding it lengthwise but not moved angularly relative to the blade.

  • Patent number: 9489534
    Abstract: A multi-level security system includes a storage medium partitionable into a plurality of partitions, a file system coupleable to the plurality of partitions, and a plurality of enclaves. Each enclave is assigned a security classification level. Each enclave resides in a different storage partition of the storage medium. Data stored on the storage medium is cryptographically separated at rest on a per-enclave basis. Cryptographic separation occurs at the disk block level, allowing individual blocks to be read and decrypted. The system also includes a reference monitor that enforces a system security policy that governs access to information between the enclaves. The reference monitor allows an enclave having a first classification level to securely read-down to an enclave having a second classification level lower than the first classification level and to write to another enclave having the first classification level.
