  • Patent number: 10659190
    Abstract: Devices, computer-readable media, and methods for selecting a type of transmission for an immersive visual stream based upon a latency estimate. For instance, a processing system including at least one processor may obtain a latency estimate for an immersive visual stream, determine whether the latency estimate exceeds a latency threshold for selecting a type of transmission for the immersive visual stream, and select the type of transmission for the immersive visual stream from among a field of view restricted type of transmission and a field of view plus out of scene type of transmission based upon the determining. When the latency estimate is determined to not exceed the latency threshold, the field of view restricted type of transmission is selected. When the latency estimate is determined to exceed the latency threshold, the field of view plus out of scene type of transmission is selected.

  • Patent number: 10630740
    Abstract: Described herein is a system that generates and displays an interactive timeline for a teleconference session, where the interactive timeline includes a representation of supplemental recorded content that has been added after a live viewing of the teleconference session has ended. The system can inject the supplemental recorded content into previously recorded content or append the supplemental recorded content to the interactive timeline. Moreover, the system can cause the supplemental recorded content to subsequently be displayed in one of multiple different views. Furthermore, the system can generate and/or distribute a notification of the supplemental recorded content so that participants to the teleconference session can be made aware of additional activity contributed to the teleconference session (e.g., by someone who missed the live viewing of the teleconference session).

  • Patent number: 10623275
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide systems, computer program products, and methods for a network operational decisional engine (NODE) to allow individual users to set resource distribution constraints on various accounts over a number of different networks. By providing a centralized user interface and storing and tracking user profile and account data, the invention recognizes and filters resource distribution requests based on operational decisions as specified by users in order to provide increased control over the authorization or denial of resource distribution requests. The NODE provides the ability to proactively control resource distribution constraints before requests for resource distribution are initiated, and allows for tailored operational decisions to be easily implemented based on a wide range of user-defined criteria.

  • Patent number: 10623462
    Abstract: Personal content server apparatus and associated methods that allow a user (e.g., cable or satellite network subscriber) to access content, such as a video program, from a location outside the subscriber's network. In one embodiment, a personal content server streams the content to the subscriber over a network connection from the local e.g., (subscription) network to a remote network upon authorization by a content manager process. Various access, business or operational rules are applied depending on the content and delivery mode; e.g., to live video broadcast, video-on-demand (VOD), or archived content from the subscriber's digital video recorder (DVR) or networked PVR. Secondary content (e.g., promotions, advertisements, etc.) can also be selectively replaced if desired in order to make the remotely delivered content more appropriate to the remote user's context.

  • Patent number: 10601898
    Abstract: Measurement exchange networks and protocols to exchange measurements of a parameter amongst devices (e.g., IoT devices), select the best measurement(s), accuracy/precision-wise, and determine a process variable for a control system based on the selected best measurement(s). A device may select a peer-provided best measurement to output as the process variable in place of a local measurement, and/or compute the process variable from multiple best measurements (e.g., local and/or peer-provided measurements).
