Gerard M X Fernando, David W Parker, Peter Saraga: Method and apparatus for providing an enhanced television signal. U S Philips Corporation, Michael E Marion, February 13, 1990: US04901149 (12 worldwide citation)

A television signal for a television transmission system conveys a motion information signal in addition to the vision signal. At the transmission side each field of a picture is subdivided into a plurality of regions and up to a given number of the most dominant motion vectors appropriate to a regi ...

Gerard M X Fernando: Method and apparatus for picture motion measurement. U S Philips Corporation, Michael E Marion, November 27, 1990: US04974084 (7 worldwide citation)

Television pictures are divided up into a number of regions and corresponding regions for two pictures are correlated to produce motion vectors at an output connectrion (2) of a motion vector generator (1) which also at an output connection (4) produces signals signifying relative magnitude and/or w ...

Gerard M X Fernando: Method and apparatus for picture motion measurement whereby two pictures are correlated as a function of selective displacement. U S Philips Corporation, Michael E Marion, January 15, 1991: US04985765 (3 worldwide citation)

A region from two frames of a television picture is subjected to Fourier transform in processing stages (3 and 4) one via a picture memory (2), and the resulting transforms compared in a comparator (5) whose output is subjected to inverse Fourier transform in a processing stage (6). The output of co ...

Gerard M X Fernando, Aldo Giardina: Method and apparatus for picture motion measurement using picture correlation as a function of displacement. U S Philips Corporation, Michael E Marion, April 16, 1991: US05008744 (2 worldwide citation)

A method of picture motion measurement in which two pictures are correlated to determine correlation as a function of displacement to determine peak correlation values corresponding to motion vectors. In the method a maximum sample point (P) associated with a peak in a correlation surface is located ...

Gerard M X Fernando: Methods and apparatus for independent decryption of encrypted video frames. ZTE, Perkins Coie, September 19, 2017: US09769506

Techniques for generating an encrypted video bitstream include encrypting media data using a plurality of encryption keys and generating metadata associated with the encrypted media data. The metadata includes a first list based on the plurality of encryption keys and a second list based on initiali ...

Kelly Y Kishore, Gerard M X Fernando: Method and System for Optimizing the Content and Transfer of Media Files. October 6, 2011: US20110246673-A1

Media files, including video, are compressed using information about subsequent processing, or transcoding, that will later be applied to the files. The compression allows the files to be uploaded over a limited-bandwidth device more quickly or less expensively than would otherwise be required. The ...

Kelly Y Kishore, Gerard M X Fernando: Method and system for parallelizing video compression. August 4, 2011: US20110188577-A1

Video data compression performance is improved through the use of multiple processors operating in parallel. The parallel processors perform motion or spatial estimation, where portions of a video frame are found to be similar to portions in reference frames. Because this estimation operation can be ...
