U.S. Patent No. 8,527,340, further supported by U.S. Patent No. 9,020,832 and U.S. Patent 9,264,474, empowers a wide range of video streaming applications, including the ability to instantly select the best available real-time video stream from a multitude of video streams. Only CrowdOptic can capture the sensor data from all devices with a common focus (claim 1) and filter the data stream to eliminate any erratic data values (claim 9) to prevent attributes like jitter and "shaky" video from appearing in the broadcast to the viewing audience (claim 3).
