  • Patent number: 11463757
    Abstract: A sender transmits media streams at receiver-enabled resolutions. The sender, a media server that has multiple resolutions of media available to stream, is made aware of the capability of the receiver to process lower resolution media streams, including a super-resolution capability to enhance the lower resolution media stream using temporal and/or spatial information contained in the lower resolution media stream. The media server sends lower resolution streams to the receiver, thereby freeing up bandwidth on the communication channel for other uses. The receiver can notify the sender of events that affect the status of the super-resolution capability on the receiver, and the sender can adjust the resolution and bitrate of the media stream accordingly to optimize use of the communication channels and resources by encoding and transmitting high resolution video frames only when needed.

  • Patent number: 11438421
    Abstract: A client device may, as part of a remote access or cloud-based network environment, access a resource either by using a connection to a gateway or by using a connection that bypasses the gateway. Which connection is used may be based on the network location of the resources provided by the network environment and network location of the client device. For example, if the client device and a resource are located at the same network location or connected to the same local network, the client device may access the resource by using a connection that bypasses the gateway. If the client device and the resource are located at different network locations or are connected to different local networks, the client device may connect to the gateway to access the resource.
