Application number: 16/979,830

Methods and apparatus for intra prediction in video encoding and decoding using a composite reference array are described. In one exemplary embodiment, the composite reference array is formed from two or more reference arrays of a plurality of reference arrays. The composite reference array can be formed by projecting along a prediction direction, one or more of the plurality of reference arrays onto a reference array closest to the block of the video data being encoded or decoded. The filter coefficients for the interpolation filter are then determined based on the locations of the predictors on different reference arrays. Interpolating reference samples from different reference arrays, the predictor value for a target sample can be obtained.

In today's network management world, there are various solutions that collect data and presume to identify events impacting the QoE of the end-users, However, such solutions usually do not try to address the question of whether the end-users are actually impacted. These solutions usually look at certain types of known problems and try to detect if that problem exists in the end-user's network, and from that they conclude that the end-user might be impacted, The method according to an embodiment of the invention enables to proactively identify that an end-user is actually experiencing an event impacting the QoE in his home network. The proposed solution enables the detection of event affecting an end-user's network, regardless of the type of the network and without looking for specific issues. This knowledge may be a valuable asset of an Internet Service Provider which may fix issues quicker or mitigate end-users' dissatisfaction.

A method for rendering a current image on a head-mounted display is provided. The current image has been acquired by a camera mounted on a moving object. First, the capturing roll angle is obtained. It is compared to the viewing roll angle that is the current roll angle of the head of a user of the head-mounted display. If the difference between the capturing roll angle and the current viewing roll angle is lower than a determined threshold, a detection flag is activated. The current image is then rotated by an angle determined according to the capturing roll angle, the current viewing roll angle and of the detection flag. The current rotated image is rendered.
