Title
(EN) MOBILE DEVICE FOR SELECTIVELY SUPPRESSING A VIDEO FUNCTION OF A PACKET-BASED VIDEO CALL
(FR) DISPOSITIF MOBILE POUR SUPPRIMER SÉLECTIVEMENT UNE FONCTION VIDÉO D'UN APPEL VIDÉO À BASE DE PAQUETS
Abstract
(EN) A mobile device (102a) and corresponding method and program. The mobile device (102a) comprises: a transceiver (303) for accessing a packet-based network (101); a screen (201); communication processing apparatus (301) coupled to the transceiver (303) and screen (201), for conducting a packet-based video call with a remote device (102b) via a channel established over the packet-based network (101); and a sensor (304) for sensing a spatial state of the mobile device (102a). The communication processing apparatus (301) is coupled to the sensor (304) and configured so as to detect, during the video call, whether the mobile device (102a) is in a first spatial state or a second spatial state, e.g. being held away from or against a user's ear and to suppress a video function of the call when in the second spatial state but not in the first spatial state.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif mobile (102a) et un procédé et un programme correspondants. Le dispositif mobile (102a) comprend : un émetteur-récepteur (303) pour accéder à un réseau à base de paquets (101); un écran (201); un appareil de traitement de communication (301) couplé à l'émetteur-récepteur (303) et à l'écran (201), pour réaliser un appel vidéo à base de paquets avec un dispositif distant (102b) par l'intermédiaire d'un canal établi sur le réseau à base de paquets (101); et un capteur (304) pour détecter un état spatial du dispositif mobile (102a). L'appareil de traitement de communication (301) est couplé au capteur (304) et configuré de façon à détecter, durant l'appel vidéo, si le dispositif mobile (102a) est dans un premier état spatial ou un second état spatial, par exemple maintenu à distance d'une oreille de l'utilisateur ou contre elle, et pour supprimer une fonction vidéo de l'appel dans le second état spatial mais pas dans le premier état spatiale.
