Patexia is looking for method and device for imaging scenes having different brightness variations, the device exposure setting is adjusted based on the brightness of that object to be photographed.
Submitted documents describing this system must be:
● filed or published before 03/27/2003
● not on the known references list
The Patexia Case Research team has designed the following questions for a crowdsourced validity analysis ofUS 7,495,699 B2 with a focus on independent claims 1, 6.
Figure 1 shows the schematic of the process associated with the claims 1, 6.
|1||Is the reference either a US patent filed, a foreign patent published, or a non-patent document published before March 27, 2003?||T/F|
|2||Does the reference describe a method and/or system for sequentially digitally imaging a scene (such as in a digital video)?||20|
|3||Does the reference further show selecting at least one moving object of interest within the scene, tracking the at least one object as it moves within the scene?||20|
|4||Does the reference further show adjusting the exposure of the entire scene based on the at least one object image data?||20|
|5||Does the reference describe a method and/or a system that does object tracking, object priority, auto-exposure imaging that updates the next image frame with the exposure information learned from the object of interest in the current frame?||40|
