  • Patent number: 10146847
    Abstract: A system and method for managing a phone number-based Social Network Service (SNS) account. When a phone number change schedule information is received from the user terminal, a phone number change schedule message to user terminals included in a friend list of the corresponding account confirms when authentication of the new SNS account is requested from the user terminal, whether or not the account is an account of the changed phone number for the new authentication request based on the previously transmitted phone number change schedule information. If the account is an account of the changed phone number, a phone number change notification message is transmitted to user terminals in a friend list of the account of the changed phone number. Friends linked to the user of the SNS account are correctly informed of information on the change of the phone number.

  • Patent number: RE47004
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a A moving image coding apparatus and method involving the simultaneous parallel running of respective modules, namely: a segment-unit-coding module in which an input image frame is divided into segment units and the integer pel (integer pixel) motion is estimated while at the same time the 1/n pixel images are generated with respect to the segments of the image coded in the coding module; and a macroblock-unit-coding module in which the segments of the image frame whose the integer pel motion has been estimated in the segment-unit-coding module are received as input in the form of macroblock units and are coded in macroblock units through the 1/n pixel motion estimation. By separating the coding units into different modules and employing the techniques of parallel processing and pipelining, the present invention makes it possible to effect high-speed encoding with reduced delay in the coding rate due to differences in the processing speeds of the respective modules.
