Title
(EN) SPECIAL EFFECTS COMMUNICATION TECHNIQUES
(FR) TECHNIQUES DE COMMUNICATION À EFFETS SPÉCIAUX
Abstract
(EN)
A special effects communication system 10 may include a camera system at a first location that generates a first dataset based on one or more images or impressions of a first user at the first location. The special effects communication system 10 may also include a control system 66 communicatively coupled to the camera system and a special effects system 68. The control system 66 may receive a second dataset corresponding to a second user present at a second location or to one or more users at one or more locations while the first user is present at the first location. The control system 66 may also provide one or more control signals to cause the special effects system 68 at the first location to generate special effects to present a visual and/or auditory likeness of the second user using special effects material and/or mediums.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système de communication à effets spéciaux 10 pouvant comprendre un système de caméra au niveau d'un premier emplacement qui génère un premier ensemble de données sur la base d'une ou plusieurs images ou impressions d'un premier utilisateur au niveau du premier emplacement. Le système de communication à effets spéciaux 10 peut également comprendre un système de commande 66 accouplé en communication au système de caméra et un système d'effets spéciaux 68. Le système de commande 66 peut recevoir un second ensemble de données correspondant à un second utilisateur présent au niveau d'un second emplacement ou à un ou plusieurs utilisateurs au niveau d'un ou plusieurs emplacements lorsque le premier utilisateur se trouve au niveau du premier emplacement. Le système de commande 66 peut également fournir un ou plusieurs signaux de commande pour amener le système d'effets spéciaux 68 au niveau du premier emplacement à générer des effets spéciaux pour présenter une ressemblance visuelle et/ou auditive du second utilisateur à l'aide d'un matériel et/ou de supports d'effets spéciaux.
