  • Patent number: 10860864
    Abstract: According to one configuration, an example surveillance system includes a sensor device, analyzer hardware, and processing hardware. During operation, the sensor device scans a monitored location and generates scan data. In one embodiment, the scan data (such as distance-based data) indicates (defines) surface textures of one or more objects present at the monitored location (such as a location of interest) based on distance measurements. The analyzer hardware analyzes the scan data and change in surface textures. The controller hardware: i) generates a communication based on the detected surface textures, and ii) transmits the communication to a remote station.

  • Patent number: 10839224
    Abstract: A method detects sports highlights for an event involving players and a play object. The method calculates a covariance matrix characterizing a two-dimensional variation of a multivariate probability distribution presumed for the players relative to a spatiotemporal tracking dataset corresponding to the players. The method calculates an area S occupied by the distribution as a function S(t) based on Eigenvalues calculated from the covariance matrix, derives a differential of the function S(t) and obtains an absolute value of the differential using a function ƒ(t). The method defines a function g(t) relative to a threshold tthreshold. The function g(t) assigns a first or second value responsive to a current time t meeting or exceeding, respectively, the threshold tthreshold. The method outputs as the sports highlight, a highest value from among local peaks extracted from a convolution of the functions ƒ(t) and g(t) and being within a range of the threshold tthreshold.

    Abstract: A recording medium includes a video stream of a standard-luminance range and a video stream of high-luminance range, which are used selectively in accordance with a playback environment. The recording medium also includes a subtitle stream of the standard-luminance range and a subtitle stream of the high-luminance range, which are used selectively in accordance with the playback environment. A playlist file includes a management region where playback control information relating to a main stream is stored, and includes an extended region. The management region stores first playback control information specifying playing of the video stream of the high-luminance range and the subtitle stream of the high-luminance range in combination. The extended region stores second playback control information specifying playing of the video stream of the standard-luminance range and the subtitle stream of the standard-luminance range in combination.

  • Patent number: 10419463
    Abstract: A security platform employs a variety techniques and mechanisms to detect security related anomalies and threats in a computer network environment. The security platform is “big data” driven and employs machine learning to perform security analytics. The security platform performs user/entity behavioral analytics (UEBA) to detect the security related anomalies and threats, regardless of whether such anomalies/threats were previously known. The security platform can include both real-time and batch paths/modes for detecting anomalies and threats. By visually presenting analytical results scored with risk ratings and supporting evidence, the security platform enables network security administrators to respond to a detected anomaly or threat, and to take action promptly.

  • Patent number: 10397636
    Abstract: An electronic device has one or more processors, a display, and memory. The memory stores one or more programs configured for execution by the one or more processors. The device receives, from a content delivery network, a program manifest including one or more video segments of a video. The electronic device parses the program manifest to identify a timeline for the video that spans the video segments. The electronic device receives, from a social-networking server, a playback offset for the video. In accordance with the playback offset and the timeline for the video, the electronic device determines a designated video segment and a playback position within the designated video segment. The electronic device then plays the video segments sequentially on the electronic device, commencing at the playback position within the designated video segment.
