The technical field to which the invention relates

The present description relates to a system and method of controlling the movement using temporal synchronization between the film and the movement and, in particular, to a system and method of controlling the movement using temporal synchronization between the film and the movement that pre retain the movement corresponding to the time code, before the screening of movies and control the movement in accordance with the preset code motion, when it comes to films, at this current time the drive is compared with the reference time of the movie and then synchronized to ensure precise movement with high resolution for the user, achieving precise synchronization with the movie.

The level of technology

The location for films such as the showroom or the cinema, at the present level of technological development, the audience only showed movies, but in recent years, began to provide different effects in films.

If the cinema to show regular movies called 2-dimensional cinema, and cinema for films shot in a special way so that the observers perceived the 3-dimension while watching a movie is in, called 3-dimensional cinema, the cinema, where the audience watching movies, while the inclusion of the five senses, due to the stimulation of the tactile senses of smell, etc. in addition to the senses of vision and hearing, is a 4-dimensional cinema.

In 4-dimensional cinema mobile platform, which moves the seat on which sits the viewer, installed under the seat, and devices for creating special effects that provide a variety of effects for the audience, is installed on the seat and the inner walls or the ceiling of theater.

When the viewer in the seat watching the movie, the viewer may feel a stronger excitation and sense of involvement in the film and simultaneously subjected to movement, synchronized with the film, and to experience the impact of effects such as water, wind, smoke, flash, heat, etc. and not just watch the movie.

In ski films, seat sells for the viewer the feeling that he really moved by movement of the seat with such degrees of freedom, as up - down, left - right, forward - back, etc. using the actuator. Movement of the actuator is controlled by the motion controller.

With the above purpose, the Central server transmits the time code and code motion by streaming the Hema in the motion controller. In the method of transmission of the code motion for streaming scheme as the scheme streaming code motion in accordance with the time code stream movement is synchronized with the time code to send multiple controllers motion. Further, the motion controller controls the drive of the actuator in accordance with the code motion in the movie that shows the time corresponding to the time code.

In recent years, for the films seek to implement a more precise movement, even as the number of seats. To motion controller can control more precise movement while exercising movements many seats, the array data and the data rate code motion is required to increase, and the array of processed code data traffic processed in the motion controller, you want to increase.

However, in the method of transmission of the code of traffic on the streaming scheme, movement many seats it is impossible to synchronize with the movie. Many motion control requires the simultaneous receipt of the same code motion, but many controllers it is difficult to simultaneously obtain a large number of codes of the motion, and, as a result, in some enforcement mechanisms or some motion error may occur to the Yes movement during a screening of the movie.

When a problem occurs in the transmission network of the entire premises for the films, the method of transmission of the code of traffic on the streaming scheme, the motion controller may not receive a code motion during screenings, and, as a result, bringing chairs in the movement stops.

This Central server is designed as a server with a processor and to transmit the ID movement in a variety of motion control in the data flow diagram real time, the data rate is reduced so that it is impossible to transmit the code motion with high resolution. That is, a method for transmitting code motion for streaming scheme cannot implement precise movement with high resolution.

The best option exercise

Further, exemplary embodiments of the present invention are described in detail with reference to pilage what's drawings. The configuration in accordance with the present invention and the resulting operational effects will become apparent from the following detailed description. Before a detailed description of the present invention, it should be noted that the same elements are assigned, to the extent possible, the same numerical position, even if the same elements are shown in different drawings, and the detailed descriptions of known configurations is not given, assuming that the known configuration may complicate the understanding of the essence of the present invention.

Figure 1 shows the schematic configuration of a system for motion control using a time synchronization between the film and the movement, in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in figure 1, the system 100 for traffic control in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention includes a server 110 film, the Central server 120, 130 motion control and many actuators 140. All ski films contains many devices 130 motion control and many actuators 140, managed by appropriate devices 130 motion control.

System 100 motion control in accordance with an exemplary variant the implementation of the present invention previously stores the ID movement, the corresponding time code to display the movie. The aim is the preservation of pre-code motion with high resolution, the device 130 motion control, because the code motion is difficult to convey on the threading diagram real time. Therefore, the system 100 motion control can provide precise movement with high resolution for the user, while exact synchronization with the movie.

Code motion is expressed digital numerical values. Determining that the ID movement has a high resolution means that the resolution is high, when the refresh command positioning is high, and means that the resolution is low, when the refresh command positioning is low. For example, when the code motion (motion with high resolution) is designed as a sinusoidal oscillation, the movement with high resolution can be converted via one-minute interval during the conversion of sinusoidal motion in a digital numerical value. Digital numerical values of the movement with high resolution also separated by the minute. For example, the operating characteristic quick-acting actuator with high performance, has a resolution of 25 Hz. To polycythemia features motion control for high-speed actuator, when the code motion is updated with a frequency of 100 Hz, the movement has a high resolution. Conversely, code motion with low resolution, meaning that the resolution is low, means that the movement is defined broadly.

The following is a description of the constituent elements of the system 100 motion control in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention. The server 110 of the movie shows the movie to the user location for films. The server 110 film transmits the time code corresponding to the movie, the Central server 120. In General, for the screenings, the film continuously show 24 frames every 1 second. The frame is a snapshot of a movie, and time code are presented for each frame. At this time code data is time synchronized with the movie. The server 110 film transmits the time code at the Central server 120.

The Central server 120 receives the signal of the beginning of the films, a movie or a signal of the end of the show the movie for the movie from the server 110 film and transmits the received signal to the device 130 motion control. The Central server 120 analyzes the time code is taken from the server 110 film, and informs the reference time of the film in the device 130 control movement is a group of when the films. At this time code can be linear time code (LTC). Linear time code can be transmitted, when investing in channel sound frequency in the transmission network. The Central server 120 transmits the reference time of the film in the device 130 traffic management periodically or at a preset time (for example, in many moments, preset during a screening of the movie). For example, the Central server 120 transmits the reference time of the film in the device 130 traffic management on the network every 10 seconds or every 20 seconds.

For each section of the seat or set of seats installed many actuators 140 to cause the seat to move in accordance with a pre-specified degree of mobility. For example, many actuators 140 may implement motion in three degrees of freedom of movement (for example, rolling, rolling keel and vertical motion or motion in four degrees of freedom of movement (rolling, rolling keel, vertical, rocking and swinging motion), in accordance with the scheme of driving.

The device 130 controls the movement of pre-stores the ID movement corresponding to the time code before showing the movie. The device 130 traffic management manipulated the movement of the actuator in accordance with the preset code motion, when the films. The device 130 motion control compares the reference time of the movie, taken from the Central server 120, with the current time of the drive movement to synchronize the current time drive with the received reference time of the movie. In another exemplary embodiment, in which the server 110 film contains the module code analysis time, the server 110 film analyzes the time code to calculate the reference time of the film and passes the calculated reference time of the film in the device 130 motion control. Then the device 130 motion control takes the reference time of the movie from the server 110 film and compares the received reference time of the movie with the current time of the actuator to perform the above synchronization.

Figure 2 presents a detailed diagram of the device configuration of motion control, shown in figure 1, in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

As shown in figure 2, the device 130 motion control includes a receiving unit 210, the block 220 motion control and block 230 data storage.

Block 230 storing data preprocessing code motion, code time before showing the movie.

The receiving unit 210 receives the reference time to which nofilm from a Central server 120. The receiving unit 210 receives the signal the beginning of the movement or signal the end of the movement, depending on the time of the films, from the Central server 120.

Block 220 motion control controls the movement of the actuator 140 in accordance with the code motion previously stored in the block data storage 230, when it comes to films. Block 220 motion control reads the ID movement, the time that the drive through secured therein a clock signal from the block data storage 230 to control the actuator 140.

When the receiving unit 210 receives the reference time of the movie, the block 220 motion control compares the current drive with the reference time of the film, accepted the receiving unit 210. Block 220 motion control may compare the reference time of the movie with the current time of the drive periodically or at a preset time, without comparing the current time of the drive movement from the reference time of the movie in real time.

Block 220 motion control synchronizes the current time drive with the received reference time of the movie, when a failure occurs between the reference time of the movie and the current time of the actuator movement. That is, the block 220 motion control adjusts with the divine current time synchronization, that is, the time from the reference time of the movie. In this case, the block 220 motion control can synchronize the current time of the drive movement from the reference time of the movie, when the failure time between the received reference time of the movie and the current time of the drive is greater than a preset threshold time. By comparing the current time of the drive movement from the reference time of the movie, the block 220 motion control can synchronize the current time of the drive movement from the reference time of the movie, even when the current time of actuator movement does not exceed a predefined threshold time. For example, when the current time of the drive is ahead of the reference time of the film unit 220 controls the movement controls movement by delaying the current time drive on the failure time. In the opposite case, when the current time of actuator movement lags behind the reference time of the movie, the block 220 motion control controls the movement by shifting forward the current time of drive failure time.

In this case, when the current time of the actuator movement is synchronized with the reference time of the film may occur intermittent movement. Block 220 motion control performs smoothing by filtering intermittent DV is the or when there is an intermittent movement. The block 220 motion control performs the smoothing in accordance with a predefined synchronization profile to filter the intermittent motion. Figure 3 presents the block diagram of the operational sequence of the method of controlling the movement using temporal synchronization between the film and the movement, in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.

The device 130 controls the movement of pre-stores the ID movement corresponding to the display time of the movie, before the screening of the film (W302).

The device 130 motion control controls the drive of the actuator in accordance with the beginning of the movement, adopted from the Central server 120 (S304).

The device 130 motion control takes the reference time of the movie, while happens films (S306).

The device 130 motion control checks whether the current time of the drive with the received reference time of the movie (S308).

In accordance with the verification result (S308), when the current time of the drive does not match the reference time of the movie, when a fault has occurred in time between the reference time of the movie and the current time of the drive, the device 130 motion control C is chronicarum the current time of the drive movement from the reference time (S310). In the opposite case, when the current time of actuator movement coincides with the reference time of the movie, the device 130 motion control performs step S308 and the subsequent procedure again.

Then the device 130 motion control checks to see if the intermittent motion during synchronization during the procedure at step S310 (S312). Accordingly, the test result (S312), the device 130 motion control smooths movement by filtering intermittent motion, when synchronization occurs intermittent movement (S314).

The device 130 motion control controls the drive of the actuator in accordance with the smoothed motion (SS316).

In the opposite case, in accordance with the verification result (S312), when not synchronized intermittent motion device 130 motion control controls the drive of the actuator in accordance with the movement, synchronized with the display time for the movie (S318).
