06750919 is referenced by 67 patents.

This invention relates to a system and method for placing event related information into a video broadcasting so that the added information does not interfere with or obscure the primary action of interest in the broadcast. The disclosed information could be implemented by using instructions from an event information gathering system to trigger the display of one of an appropriate set of pre-rendered animations in the broadcast video via a well known live video insertion system (

48

). The disclosed invention envisages the animation sequence having at least two parts (FIG.

4

), namely a core or base sequence (

34

) which is always used, and a mid or a variable sequence (

56, 58, 60

) which is changed according to the actual data that needs to be displayed. The live video insertion system data (

48

) and processing may be used to perform occlusion, and/or tracking to either make the event information display look as if it is part of the scene, or merely to occlude the display when event action would otherwise be obscured, or to turn off or reposition, or resize the display when event action otherwise be obscured.
