  • Patent number: 10541824
    Abstract: A scalable virtual conferencing system which implements a hub and spoke architecture. For example, one embodiment of a scalable virtual conferencing system comprises: a participant management module to logically group each participant in the virtual conferencing system into a hub or one of a plurality of spokes; and a data flow management module to control communication of information between participants in the spokes and participants in the hub, the data flow management module to limit intercommunication from the spokes to the hub in accordance with the manual user input and/or participant management policy; wherein at least one participant in a first spoke is designated as a spoke leader for the first spoke, the spoke leader logically grouped into both the hub and the first spoke, the data flow management module to allow information generated within the first spoke to be propagated into the hub based on input from the spoke leader.

  • Publication number: 20050002272
    Abstract: A mixer system including a bowl for receiving a material to be mixed, a mixer body having a rotatable output component, and a hinge. The bowl is pivotable about the hinge relative to the mixer body such the bowl can be pivoted between a loading/unloading position and a closed position relative the mixer body. The mixer system further includes a locking mechanism located at least partially on one of the bowl or the mixer body, the locking mechanism being normally biased into a locking position. At least a portion the bowl or the mixer body interacts with the locking mechanism to move the locking mechanism toward the release position to allow the bowl to move to the closed position, the locking mechanism being movable back toward the locking position when the bowl is in the closed position to retain the bowl in the closed position.
