Title (EN) NORMALIZED IMAGES FOR CAMERAS
(FR) IMAGES NORMALISEES POUR CAMERAS
Abstract:
(EN) A method and system for producing normalized images of conference participants so that the participants appear to be approximately the same size when the images are displayed is provided. The normalizing system normalizes the size of images based on constraints relating to the distance of participants from the location of the camera. To normalize the image of a participant, the system zooms the camera to account for the distance of the participant from the camera.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un système de production d'images normalisées de participants à une conférence de sorte que les participants semblent être approximativement de la même taille lorsque les images sont affichées. Le système de normalisation normalise la taille des images en fonction de contraintes relatives à la distance de participants par rapport à l'emplacement de la caméra. Afin de normaliser l'image d'un participant, le système fait varier la focale de la caméra afin de prendre en compte la distance du participant par rapport à la caméra.
