  • Patent number: 10355967
    Abstract: A video analysis system may utilize display screen snapshots captured from a device. The system may receive time information that indicates a time duration, position-related information that indicates a region, and reference information that indicates information expected to appear in the region during the time duration. The system may transmit an instruction to capture display screen snapshots during a time duration indicated by the time information. The system may receive a display screen snapshot and recognize information in the region indicated by the position-related information. The system may then determine whether the recognized information corresponds to the reference information and based on the result determine whether the video test automation has passed.

  • Publication number: 20170149855
    Abstract: Methods and systems for intelligent use of off-peak bandwidth are disclosed. An example method can comprise receiving a request for content from a user device. The content server can transmit the content to the user device. Upon receiving a teardown command to suspend transmission of the content, after transmitting a first portion of the content to the user device, the content server can determine that playback of the content is likely to be resumed at a peak time. The content server can then pre-position a second portion of the content proximate to the user device prior to the peak time.
