Predictive analysis is performed upon encoded digital motion video (such as an MPEG Transport Stream) to facilitate real-time splicing. The predictive analysis includes estimation of upper and lower bounds of the data levels in a decoder's video and audio buffers for splicing in such a way as t ...

Sebastian Keller, Daniel Gardere, Jie Wang, Michel Noury, Sorin Faibish: Method of pausing an MPEG coded video stream. EMC Corporation, Richard C Auchterlonie, Novak Druce & Quigg, April 4, 2006: US07023924 (105 worldwide citation)

To produce a paused MPEG coded video stream from an original MPEG coded video stream, an I frame is extracted from the original stream, and a Group of Pictures for a “pause” (a pause GOP) is constructed containing the extracted I frame, some “frozen” frames, and padding. Each “frozen” frame is a P f ...
