Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUSES FOR CONTROLLING VIDEO CONTENT DISPLAYED TO A VIEWER
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREILS PERMETTANT DE COMMANDER UN CONTENU VIDÉO AFFICHÉ À UN SPECTATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A method and an apparatus for controlling video content displayed to a viewer are presented. The method includes receiving video stream of a video. Two or more areas of interest are identified in a segment of the video stream and a display priority for each area of interest is determined. The method includes facilitating display of concurrently occurring portions of the segment if the display priority for the each area of interest is equal and the areas of interest can be simultaneously presented in a single view on a display screen. The concurrently occurring portions are displayed in a split screen arrangement if the areas of interest cannot be simultaneously presented in the single view. The portions of the segment related to one or more areas of interest are displayed based on an order of the display priority if the display priority for the each area of interest is unequal.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de commander un contenu vidéo affiché à un spectateur. Le procédé comprend la réception de flux vidéo d'une vidéo. Deux ou plusieurs zones d'intérêt sont identifiées dans un segment du flux vidéo et une priorité d'affichage de chaque zone d'intérêt est déterminée. Le procédé consiste à faciliter l'affichage de parties du segment se produisant simultanément si la priorité d'affichage de chaque zone d'intérêt est égale et si les zones d'intérêt peuvent être présentées simultanément dans un affichage simple sur un écran d'affichage. Les parties se produisant simultanément sont affichées dans un agencement d'écran divisé si les zones d'intérêt ne peuvent pas être présentées simultanément dans l'affichage simple. Les parties du segment se rapportant à une ou plusieurs zones d'intérêt sont affichées sur la base d'un ordre de priorité d'affichage si la priorité d'affichage de chaque zone d'intérêt n'est pas égale.
