CROWD SOURCING FOR FILE RECOGNITION 2017-08-03 Pending Kozan, kevin michael
  • Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (US) - Burbank, CA
Methods for identifying encrypted content in ones of a plurality of encrypted data files in a library of encrypted files without decrypting the data files utilize crowd sourcing for content identification. A method includes selecting, by a computer, content titles for presenting with ones of identifiers for the data files in a data structure. Each of the identifiers includes a hash of metadata for one of the data files and the content titles include a character string that identifies each file's content. The user selection data identifies the content titles that correspond to the data files. The computer determines which content titles satisfy a minimum confidence threshold for associating with one of the identifiers, based on a quality or quantity of the multiple independent clients supplying the user selection data. An apparatus for performing the method includes a memory holding instructions for performing steps of the method as summarized above.

METHODS FOR CONTROLLING SCENE, CAMERA AND VIEWING PARAMETERS FOR ALTERING PERCEPTION OF 3D IMAGERY 2017-05-25 Pending Nolan, christopher e.
  • Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (US) - Burbank, CA
Mathematical relationships between the scene geometry, camera parameters, and viewing environment are used to control stereography to obtain various results influencing the viewer's perception of 3D imagery. The methods may include setting a horizontal shift, convergence distance, and camera interaxial parameter to achieve various effects. The methods may be implemented in a computer-implemented tool for interactively modifying scene parameters during a 2D-to-3D conversion process, which may then trigger the re-rendering of the 3D content on the fly.

Method and Apparatus for Generating Encoded Content Using Dynamically Optimized Conversion for 3D Movies 2017-05-04 Pending Antonellis, darcy
  • WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. (US) - BURBANK, CA
The present invention pertains to an apparatus and method for adding a graphic element, such as a subtitle to selected locations of the frames in a 3D movie. The authoring tool receives a depth map indicating the position of various objects in the frames of 3D content along a Z-axis. The authoring device then designates a position for at least one additional graphic element in at least some of the frames, these positions being determined in relation either to the positions of the objects or the position of the screen along said Z-axis. An encoder uses parameters from the authoring tool to reauthor the 3D movie by adding the graphic content to the positions designated by the parameters.

PRODUCTION AND PACKAGING OF ENTERTAINMENT DATA FOR VIRTUAL REALITY 2017-04-13 Pending Defaria, christopher
  • WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. (US) - Burbank, CA
An augmented reality (AR) output device or virtual reality (VR) output device is worn by a user, and includes one or more sensors positioned to detect actions performed by a user of the immersive output device. A processor provides a data signal configured for the AR or VR output device, causing the immersive output device to provide AR output or VR output via a stereographic display device. The data signal encodes audio-video data. The processor controls a pace of scripted events defined by a narrative in the one of the AR output or the VR output, based on output from the one or more sensors indicating actions performed by a user of the AR or VR output device. The audio-video data may be packaged in a non-transitory computer-readable medium with additional content that is coordinated with the defined narrative and is configured for providing an alternative output, such as 2D video output or the stereoscopic 3D output.

CINEMATIC MASTERING FOR VIRTUAL REALITY AND AUGMENTED REALITY 2017-04-13 Pending Defaria, christopher
  • WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. (US) - Burbank, CA
An entertainment system provides data to a common screen (e.g., cinema screen) and personal immersive reality devices. For example, a cinematic data distribution server communicates with multiple immersive output devices each configured for providing immersive output (e.g., a virtual reality output) based on a data signal. Each of the multiple immersive output devices is present within eyesight of a common display screen. The server configures the data signal based on digital cinematic master data that includes immersive reality data. The server transmits the data signal to the multiple immersive output devices contemporaneously with each other, and optionally contemporaneously with providing a coordinated audio-video signal for output via a the common display screen and shared audio system.

Antonellis, darcy
  • WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC. (US) - Burbank, CA
The present invention pertains to an apparatus and method for adding a graphic element, such as a subtitle to selected locations of the frames in a 3D movie. The authoring tool receives a depth map indicating the position of various objects in the frames of 3D content along a Z-axis. The authoring device then designates a position for at least one additional graphic element in at least some of the frames, these positions being determined in relation either to the positions of the objects or the position of the screen along said Z-axis. An encoder uses parameters from the authoring tool to reauthor the 3D movie by adding the graphic content to the positions designated by the parameters.

Blotches may be identified and processed to reduce or eliminate the blotch. The blotch may be in just one of several separations and multiple separations may be used, for example, to identify the blotch. An implementation (i) compares a first component image of an image with a first component image of a reference image, (ii) compares a second component image of the image with a second component image of the reference image, and (iii) determines based on these comparisons whether the first component image of the image includes a blotch. Multiple image separations also, or alternatively, may be used, for example, to modify the blotch, as well as to evaluate whether a modification is beneficial.

  • Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (US) - Burbank, CA
Techniques are described for detecting a vertical line artifact in an image captured with a digital camera. The vertical line artifact may be caused by a defect in the digital camera. Techniques also are described for correcting a vertical line artifact in an image captured with a digital camera. It may be determined that the vertical line artifact includes at least one pixel in the vertical line having a non-zero suppressed signal. A value for the pixel having the non-zero suppressed signal may be determined. A statistically-based correction may be applied to the pixel having the non-zero suppressed signal based on the determination that the pixel has a non-zero suppressed signal and the determined value of the pixel. The image may be a portion of a movie stored on a DVD.
