Application: Systems and methods for matching audio to video punchout (Patent ID: US20240107103A1)

The patent filed by GoPro Inc. describes a system and method for matching audio to video punchout by capturing multiple audio content during the capture of visual content. The system uses the rotational position of the image capture device and a viewing window to generate modified audio content that aligns with the orientation of the visual content included in the punchout. This modified audio content is designed to provide sound for playback of the punchout of the visual content, ensuring a synchronized audio-visual experience.

The system further includes the capability to determine the viewing window based on rotational positions of the image capture device, providing options for horizon-leveled punchout, stabilized punchout, or user-defined punchout of the visual content. The modified audio content is generated using beamforming techniques, with the multiple sound sensors positioned on the image capture device perpendicular to the image sensor axis. By modifying the audio content based on the difference between the rotation of the viewing window and the rotational positions of the device, the system ensures that the audio matches the changes in the viewing window for the visual content, enhancing the overall playback experience.
