Abrégé

Method for transmitting and for receiving of adaptive streaming content over a unidirectional radio frequency network and corresponding apparatuses. Adaptive Streaming digital video and/or audio services ("AS services") are transmitted via a broadcast distribution network. The AS services can be added to the traditional broadcast programming to enhance the service offering. The AS services are encapsulated for transport in an MPEG-TS, including the manifest file and stream chunks. A descriptor ("E-descriptor") is added to the Service Information ("SI") and Program Specific Information ("PSI") to enable discovery and selection of the AS services by a receiver. The receiver installs the AS services based on the E- descriptor. If an AS services is selected, it is decapsulated and manifest files are served by an AS server in the receiver. An AS receiver in the receiver reads the manifest files, fetches the chunks from the AS server, converts these to a video and/or audio elementary streams and inputs these into a decoder, which outputs decoded streams for a renderer.

Abrégé

Different implementations are described, particularly implementations for processing a medium dynamic range video signal are presented. In a method for processing such a video signal a medium dynamic range video signal and associated metadata are received, wherein the metadata include data representative of a peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal. In addition, data representative of a peak luminance value of a presentation display are received. It is determined whether the peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal is greater or lower than the peak luminance value of the presentation display. A processor is configured based on the determination, wherein the processor has a first mode to reconstruct a high dynamic range video signal based on a received standard dynamic range video signal and associated metadata, and a second mode to optimize a received high dynamic range video signal for the rendering device. The medium dynamic range video signal is processed by the processor in the first mode if the peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal is smaller than the peak luminance value of the presentation display and in the second mode if the peak luminance value of the medium dynamic range video signal is greater than the peak luminance value of the presentation display.

The invention concerns a head-mounted device embedding a single display. However, such a head mounted device has a reduced field of view which may have a negative impact on the quality of the images presented to the users of such head mounted devices. The proposed solution consists in positioning a micro-lens array on a display of the head-mounted device to spatially multiplex images emitted by the display for each eye of a user of the head-mounted device on the entire surface of the display by interleaving pixels which emits light for a first eye of the user with pixels which emits light for the second eye and ensuring that each eye sees light emitted by pixels intended for this eye. Such a solution enables to double the field of view for each eye of the user of the head-mounted device.

Abrégé

In today's network management world, there are various solutions that collect data and presume to identify events impacting the QoE of the end-users. However, such solutions usually do not try to address the question of whether the end-users are actually impacted. These solutions usually look at certain types of known problems and try to detect if that problem exists in the end- user's network, and from that they conclude that the end-user might be impacted. The method according to an embodiment of the invention enables to proactively identify that an end-user is actually experiencing an event impacting the Qo E in his home network. The proposed solution enables the detection of event affecting an end-user's network, regardless of the type of the network and without looking for specific issues. This knowledge may be a valuable asset of an Internet Service Provider which may fix issues quicker or mitigate end-users' dissatisfaction.

A local failure prediction model is used to provide an estimation of a potential failure in a temporal window. Based on this estimation and on a collection ratio representing the proportion of non-failure data to be collected, the user device decides if it should send out the collected data to a collecting device. When the temporal window elapsed, the device sends out a label representing the real failure status. The collecting device uses the collected data and labels to improve the failure prediction model. The improved model may be redistributed to the plurality of user devices.

Abrégé

For rendering a 3D scene comprising a surface and illuminated by an area light source (A), a glossy part of a radiance is represented by drawing samples between the light source and the surface according to a random sampling process exploiting a density function (L3). Two density distributions are determined: a first one associated with reflectance properties at a shading point of the surface and with a view direction (I), and a second one associated with geometrical properties of the light source. The density function for the shading point is obtained from a product of the first and second density distributions, which are represented respectively by a first and a second cosine lobes (L1, L2). Preferably, that density function is itself represented by a third cosine lobe (L3). Application to a GPU.

Abrégé

The present disclosure concerns a device (132) for forming a field intensity pattern in the near zone, from electromagnetic waves which are incident on said device. Notably, such a device allows confining electromagnetic waves, which are incident on the device, into beams of radiation in the near zone. It comprises at least one layer of dielectric material (112), which surface has at least one abrupt change of level forming a step. A lower and lateral part of said surface with respect to said step is in contact with a substance having a refractive index lower than that of said dielectric material. For an incident electromagnetic wave impinging upon the device in the vicinity of such a step, the corresponding step of index it encounters produces a complex electromagnetic phenomenon, which allows generating low-dispersive condensed beams (55) and specific field patterns in the near zone.

Abrégé

The invention describes a method for applying a geometric warp to the light field capture of a 3D scene, consisting of several views of the scene taken from different viewpoints. The warp is specified as a set of (source point, target point) positional constraints on a subset of the views. These positional constraints are propagated to all the views and a warped image is generated for each view, in such a way that these warped images are geometrically consistent in 3D across the views.

Abrégé

There are several types of plenoptic devices and camera arrays available on the market, and all these light field acquisition devices have their proprietary file format. However, there is no standard supporting the acquisition and transmission of multidimensional information. It is interesting to obtain information related to a correspondence between pixels of a sensor of said optical acquisition system and an object space of said optical acquisition system. Indeed, knowing which portion of the object space of an optical acquisition system a pixel belonging to the sensor of said optical acquisition system is sensing enables the improvement of signal processing operations. The notion of pixel beam, which represents a volume occupied by a set of rays of light in an object space of an optical system of a camera along with a compact format for storing such information is thus introduce.
