Systems for, and methods of, displaying video information comprising: a second screen device obtaining current play position data of a video being played on a primary screen device (e.g., obtaining from the primary screen device an identification of a current play position of the video, or obtaining information to generate an acoustic fingerprint of the video); determining a current play position of the video playing on the primary screen device based upon the current play position data (e.g., identification of the current play position or the acoustic fingerprint); downloading information (e.g., video map, subtitles, moral principles, objectionable content, memorable content, performers, geographical maps, shopping, plot point, item, ratings, and trivia information) over a computer communications network into the memory of the second screen device; and displaying information on the second screen device synchronized with the contemporaneously played video on the primary screen device.. .

Seam carving based anonymization


As image source attribution techniques have become significantly sophisticated and are now becoming commonplace, there is a growing need for capabilities to anonymize images and videos. Focusing on the photo response non-uniformity noise pattern based sensor fingerprinting technique, this work evaluates the effectiveness of well-established seam carving method to defend against sensor fingerprint matching.

Method of 3d biometrics identification


A method of 3d biometrics identification includes the steps of acquiring 3d image(s) of fingerprint; performing image normalization and feature extraction steps involving, noise elimination, ridge extraction, ridge modification and ridge validation; extracting 3d fingerprint minutiae and performing the reliability evaluation of the extracted 3d fingerprint minutiae; automatically extracting of 3d fingerprint template comprising at least five features; and automatically registering two 3d fingerprint templates, say p and q, by computing relative 3d minutiae representation from a 3d minutiae in p (sample) considered as the origin and aligning every 3d minutiae in q to compute best possible matching score, wherein every 3d minutiae in template p is further considered as the origin for the alignment of 3d minutiae in template q, and the best possible matching score obtained from such considerations (candidate alignments) is considered as the final matching score between two 3d fingerprint templates.. .

Methods for identifying audio or video content


The disclosed technology generally relates to methods for identifying audio and video entertainment content. One claim recites a method comprising: receiving data representing audio uploaded to a network server, the audio having been transformed prior to receipt; analyzing the data representing audio with a fingerprint generator to yield fingerprint data; determining whether the fingerprint data incurs a potential match in a fingerprint data repository, the potential match indicating an unreliability in the match below a predetermined threshold; upon a condition of unreliability in the match, and via an application program interface, issuing a call requesting at least a first reviewer and a second reviewer to review the data representing audio; receiving results from the first reviewer and results from the second reviewer through the application program interface; weighting results from the first reviewer differently than results from the second reviewer in determining whether to allow public access to the data representing audio.
