  • Patent number: 7885272
    Abstract: A communication device, such as a telephone or a personal computer, controls one or more remotely controlled devices solely over a signaling path, without necessarily establishing an audio path, thus eliminating the need for the remotely controlled device, or its controller, to include DTMF detection hardware or software or an RTP stack. The communication device can include authentication information, which the communication device uses to authenticate itself to the remotely controlled device, so a user of the communication device can remotely control the device without necessarily entering additional authentication information, such as a passcode. The remotely controlled device (or a controller that controls the device) can register with an element that detects user interactions, such as keypad button presses, with the communication device. The registration can identify one or more patterns of user input.

  • Publication number: 20110002381
    Abstract: A video transcoding system and method employing an improved rate control algorithm. A plurality of frames in an input video bitstream are received by the system, in which each frame is in a first coding format. Each frame in the input bitstream is decoded, and complexity information indicating the complexity of the frame after decoding is obtained. An estimated number of bits to allocate for the respective frame is calculated. Using a rate estimation model that employs the complexity information for the respective frame, a picture cost for the frame is calculated based on the estimated number of bits allocated to encode the frame, and a parameter of the rate estimation model. A target cost for the respective frame is calculated based at least in part on the picture cost 10 and the complexity information for the frame.

  • Patent number: 7761577
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for terminating a communication session at a first communication device that had established a communication session with a second communication device in response to a determination that the first communication device has not received any media packets from the second communication device within at least one predetermined time period. In the event the first device determines that no media packets have been received from the second device within a first predetermined time period, a probe is sent to the second device. If a positive response is not received by the first device within a second predetermined time period from the sending of the probe, the first device terminates the session.

  • Publication number: 20100153611
    Abstract: The disclosed system and method enhances performance of pipelined data transactions involving FIFO buffers by implementing a transaction length indicator in a transaction header. The length indicator in the header is formed by components coupled to a memory controller through FIFO buffers. The memory controller uses the length indicator to execute pipelined data transfers at relatively high speeds without causing additional inadvertent shifts or indexes in the FIFO buffer being read. The system and method can be applied to any memory type in general, and avoids the use of additional control signals or added complexity or size in the memory controller.

  • Patent number: 7636775
    Abstract: The digital network modem has a built-in Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) mechanism for dynamically assigning network addresses to clients on the local network. To prevent confusion with a potentially existing DHCP server on the local network, an autosense mechanism is provided to detect the existence of a DHCP server and disable the internal, built-in DHCP mechanism. At power-on, the modem has no knowledge of clients on the local network, and the addresses in use are checked prior to operation. Addresses in use are placed in a list in a store of unknown addresses, and are not assigned to clients requesting DHCP addresses. When a DHCP client requests an address and has as its current address one of the addresses on the list, the current address is removed from the list. The list of unusable addresses is thus minimized and the same address will not be used for two clients.
