Application: Marking method on image combined with sound signal, terminal apparatus, and server (Patent ID: US20240098183A1)

The patent filed by Acer Inc. describes a marking method on an image combined with a sound signal, allowing users in a video conference to make markings on a shared screen. The method involves displaying a first image, detecting a selection command corresponding to a target region in the image, embedding a target sound signal into a speech signal to generate a combined sound signal, and transmitting the combined sound signal. The sound signal is obtained by receiving sound, and the selection command is generated through an input operation.

Furthermore, the patent details the process of distinguishing the combined sound signal into the speech signal and the target sound signal, determining the target region corresponding to the target sound signal, generating a marking at the target region in a second image, and transmitting the first image signal and the speech signal. The method also includes canceling the marking at the target region in the second image if needed. The patent also covers a terminal apparatus and a server configured to implement this marking method, providing a comprehensive system for collaborative marking on shared screens during video conferences.
