  • Patent number: 9600868
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for performing local adaptive weighting upsampling. An image may be converted into a color space representation. The color space representation of the image may then be divided into the individual color spaces. Upsampling may then be performed on the individual color planes. The upsampling may include resizing the color planes by adding pixels to the color planes. Local processing of the different color spaces may be performed to estimate values for the added pixels. Upon generating the estimated values, the estimated values may be refined by determining which known pixel values from the original image have the highest degree of influence on a newly added pixel.

  • Patent number: 9344735
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards employing distributed computing concepts such as peer-to-peer processing to distribute across a plurality of peer client devices, or swarm, the computations of Shape Encoding Schemes (SES) for encoding digital video content. As more peer client devices receive the content, progressively more iterations of a SES encoding is performed on various frames within the video content, thereby improving the encoding of the overall video content. Optionally, such distributed progressive processing or swarming approach may include other encoding, such as scaling corrections, scene transitions corrections, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20160080743
    Abstract: Examples of the present disclosure relate to performing subject oriented compression. A content file, such as a video file, may be received. One or more subjects of interest may be identified in the content file. The identified subjects of interest may be associated with a quantization value that is less than a quantization value associated with the rest of the content. When the content is compressed/encoded, the subjects of interest are compressed/encoded using their associated quantization value while the rest of the content is compressed/encoded using a larger quantization value.

  • Patent number: 9118922
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed towards employing distributed computing concepts such as peer-to-peer processing to distribute across a plurality of peer client devices, or swarm, the computations of High Cost and Compression Encoding Schemes (HCC) for encoding digital video content. As more peer client devices receive the content, progressively more iterations of a HCC encoding is performed on various frames within the video content, thereby improving the encoding of the overall video content. Optionally, such distributed progressive processing or swarming approach may include other encoding, such as scaling corrections, scene transitions corrections, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20040062616
    Abstract: A system for mounting bearing and a router bit on the end of a drive shaft. The drive shaft includes and expandable end portion onto which the bearing member is mounted by an attachment element that is inserted substantially with the expandable end portion to cause sufficient expansion thereof to mount and retain the bearing member in place on the drive shaft.

  • Patent number: 6367524
    Abstract: An adjustable bit for cutting tongues or grooves in a wooden workpiece that includes first and second cutter members adjustably mounted on a drive shaft, a plurality of spacer elements selectively mountable on the drive shaft to vary the axial spacing between the cutter members. At least some of the spacer elements preferably having varying thicknesses, and a ball bearing pilot member may be one of the spacer members. The cutter members may be formed for cutting a groove in the workpiece, or formed to cut a tongue in the workpiece.

  • Patent number: 6354347
    Abstract: A router bit for forming the edges of a raised door panel which includes a rotatable drive shaft, a profile cutter fixed to the drive shaft, and a back cutter fixed to the drive shaft for rotation therewith. A cylindrically-shaped pilot member is disposed intermediate the profile cutter and the back cutter. The pilot member is fixed to the drive shaft for rotation therewith and the exterior surface of the pilot member is coated with a friction-reducing material to reduce or eliminate any significant friction between the exterior surface of the rotating pilot member and the raised door panel.
