Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CREATING, DISTRIBUTING AND DYNAMICALLY REPRODUCING ROOM ILLUMINATION EFFECTS
Abstract:
A content stream comprising video and synchronized illumination data is based on a reference lighting setup from, for example, the site of the content creation. The content stream is received at a user location where the illumination data controls user lighting that is synchronized with the video data, so that when the video data is displayed the user's lighting is in synchronization with the video. In one embodiment, the illumination data is also synchronized with events of a game, so that a user playing games in a gaming environment will have his lighting synchronized with video and events of the game. In another embodiment, the content stream is embedded on a disk.
