Implementation With a Widescreen Movie

To evaluate our adaptive ROI system, a scene from the movie “Punch Drunk Love” was analyzed. A straight-cut fullscreen version was generated, and our adaptive ROI system was used to generate a pan-and-scan fullscreen version. The pan-and-scan version was analyzed by tracking the ROI midpoint as a function of frame number.

ROI Midpoint Tracking

To illustrate the mobility of the ROI midpoint, the following charts show the deviation of the midpoint from center after processing by motion, edge, and focus detection individually and combined. The first 4 charts show the unfiltered results of processing, while the last chart shows the filtered ROI midpoint using the combined processing.

Image Results

The following images illustrate the functionality of our adaptive ROI system compared to a center-cut fullscreen image. The images are taken from the same scene as was used for the above analysis, in the Frame # 1000 to 2000 range.

Video Results

Here you can download a center-cut fullscreen and an Adaptive ROI fullscreen version of the scene above. The videos “with black bars” show a 16:9 video with black bars over the regions that would be cropped out – the ROI is still 4:3.

Note that the videos go further in the scene than the charts above.

Definition of a lens

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
