A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11880499B2) outlines a method for displaying observation scenes with viewports into an extended reality (XR) environment through a moving XR display. The method involves receiving XR content segment data for different orientations of the XR display, determining viewport sub-regions based on spatial data and user movements, generating observation scenes by adding visual representations, and outputting these scenes in an observation video. The viewports in the video move in coordination with the XR display, showcasing various parts of the XR environment as the user interacts with the display.

The patent also includes variations such as using a head-mounted display (HMD) for virtual reality (VR) environments or a tablet computer for augmented reality (AR) environments. It further details the addition of avatars or user images to the observation scenes, adjusting the field of view for each segment, and incorporating user-specific elements into the generated scenes. Additionally, the patent covers the implementation of the method on a computer system with specific processors and memory, as well as on a non-transitory computer-readable medium containing executable instructions for creating these XR observation scenes. Overall, the patent provides a comprehensive framework for delivering immersive XR experiences through dynamic observation scenes that adapt to user interactions and XR display movements.
