Abstract

This invention discloses a system and method to merge the speakers from different places into a picture seamlessly in real-time video meeting. All the speakers from different places in each participant's screen look like they are in the same place. Video cameras are placed in different locations in each meeting room. By doing this, system can take photos of speaker in different angles. This will help composite different speakers from different places into a picture with the proper angle.

Splicing different speakers seamlessly in the shared screen during video conference

In traditional video meeting, we can see the panorama from remote place in a fixed angle. If this is a trilateral meeting, each part has two screens to show the images from the other two parts. It make participants feel rigid and they may find that it is not easy to focus on two screens. Besides, it is quite difficult to identify the speaker in a real-time if participants don't know the speaker well because there may be several participants in each part.

Is there any possible solution to solve this problem?

Video cameras are placed in different locations in each meeting room. By doing this, system can take photos of speaker in different angles. This will help composite different speakers from different places into a picture with the proper angle.

There is a central process unit to coordinate all video input and output. All video flow from all video cameras in different places is uploaded into this unit. This unit will extract speakers from different place in proper angle and merge them together. After that, it will deliver this result to different locations. Participants from different place will see one meeting video which including all speakers of different place standing or sitting together. Additionally, it will merge all left participants in the background of the result video flow.  

When the number of attendees is less than a criteria, e.g. 10 , the  invention will merge...
