  • Publication number: 20210224549
    Abstract: A system can obtain a labelled data set, including historic video data and labelled events. The system can divide the labelled data set into historic training/testing data sets. The system can determine, using the historic training data set, a plurality of different parameter configurations to be used by a video encoder to encode a video that includes a plurality of video frames. Each parameter configuration can include a group of pictures (“GOP”) size and a scenecut threshold. The system can calculate an accuracy of event detection (“ACC”) and a filtering rate (“FR”) for each parameter configuration. The system can calculate, for each parameter configuration of the plurality of different parameter configurations, a harmonic mean between the ACC and the FR. The system can then select a best parameter configuration of the plurality of different parameter configurations based upon the parameter configuration that has the highest harmonic mean.

  • Patent number: 11070254
    Abstract: Described is a technology to reduce the interference between two or more transmit receive (Tx/Rx) points (TRPs) and improve the reliability for New Radio ultra reliable low latency communication (NR URLLC) applications. The technology operates in one aspect at a network node, and in another aspect at a user equipment. If a network device decides to use packet duplication, the network device can indicate duplication to the user equipment. The network device can send duplicate copies, e.g., via two different antenna panels, or can send one copy and coordinate with another network device (e.g., another cell) to send the other copy. When the user equipment receives the copies, the user equipment combines the data, e.g., via soft combining or concatenation into combined data, and decodes the combined data. Weights, such as corresponding to channel quality from each transmit source, can be used as factors in the combining of the data.
