“On June 16, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that reveals one of the next chapters for Apple’s FaceTime videoconferencing application,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.
“Simply put, Apple understands that in this mobile world that we’re now living in, FaceTime videoconferencing won’t always take place on your nice stable iMac desktop but rather on the go,” Purcher reports. “Apple’s patent discusses fine tuning FaceTime videoconferencing so as to take advantage of face recognition software that is able to figure out where the center of your mobile display is while you’re moving about”
Purcher reports, “In theory it sounds interesting, but it’s one of those features that you’re going to have to test out yourself when it arrives – just to see if Apple has hit the mark on this one. Stabilizing video is going to be important feature going forward. And if you’ve ever shot video on an iOS device before, then you’re fully aware that we need better stabilization technology badly! ”
