Application: Game event recognition (Patent ID: US20240082704A1)

The patent filed by NVIDIA Corp. describes a game-agnostic event detector that automatically identifies game events using game-specific configuration data. The event data generated can be used for various purposes such as generating highlight videos or providing player performance feedback. The method involves processing media data to determine audio segments matching audio patterns associated with events, and providing information related to the events and audio segments. The system can detect events independently of whether they are visible in the video portion of the media data, and can pre-process video frames to determine event regions based on a configuration file.

The processor and system described in the patent claims are capable of receiving and processing media data to identify events based on audio signals, even if the events are not visible in the video portion of the data. The system can utilize pre-processing algorithms to analyze video frames and determine event regions, enabling the generation of related content like highlight videos or coaching segments. By using cue-to-event translation algorithms, the system can accurately determine events based on event cues received from event detectors. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive method and system for automatically detecting game events and generating useful content based on the detected events.
