Title
(EN) VIRTUAL WINDOW
(FR) FENÊTRE VIRTUELLE
Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure is generally related to capturing a scene and projecting a virtual window to one or more observers. A virtual window may mimic the experience a viewer has when looking through a real window. In some embodiments, for a single observer looking at a digital display or digital screen, a head-tracking camera on the same side of the screen as the observer can determine the position of the observer relative to the screen. The camera may be a 3D camera, stereoscopic camera, a wide angle lens camera, or an array of cameras (e.g., two or more). A camera on the other side of the screen can then image the view on the other side of the screen and software can determine the correct portion of the view that should be displayed on the screen to the observer.

La présente invention concerne en général la capture d’une scène et la projection d’une fenêtre virtuelle vers un ou plusieurs observateurs. Une fenêtre virtuelle peut imiter l’expérience qu’un spectateur a lorsqu’il regarde à travers une fenêtre réelle. Dans certains modes de réalisation, pour un seul observateur regardant une unité d’affichage numérique ou un écran numérique, une caméra de suivi de regard sur le même côté de l’écran que l’observateur peut déterminer la position de l’observateur par rapport à l’écran. La caméra peut être une caméra 3D, une caméra stéréoscopique, une caméra avec un objectif grand angle, ou un réseau de caméras (par exemple, deux caméras ou plus). Une caméra sur l’autre côté de l’écran peut ensuite imager la vue sur l’autre côté de l’écran et un logiciel peut déterminer la portion correcte de la vue qui doit être affichée sur l’écran à l’intention de l’observateur.
