Title: METHOD, APPARATUS AND SYSTEM FOR FACILITATING NAVIGATION IN AN EXTENDED SCENE
Abstract:
A method, apparatus and system for facilitating navigation toward a region of interest in an extended scene of video content include determining a timeline including information regarding at least one region of interest in the video content and displaying, in a portion of the video content currently being displayed, a visual indicator indicating a direction in which to move in the video content to cause the display of the at least one region of interest. In one embodiment of the present principles a timeline is attached to the content and carries information evolving over time about the region(s) of interest. A renderer processes the timeline and provides navigation information to a user using available means such as a graphical representation or haptic information, or a combination of several means.
