  • Publication number: 20190349453
    Abstract: A streaming policy management system and method wherein bandwidth may be allocated based on external device information received from a streaming client device connected to one or more external audio/video (A/V) devices. When a streaming network back office receives a request from the streaming client device for delivery of a particular content, wherein the request includes external device information of one or more external A/V devices connected to the streaming client device, a bandwidth is determined for streaming the particular content to the streaming client device and a request may be made to a content delivery network to create a distribution pipe having the bandwidth to accommodate the delivery of the particular content. A manifest file is provided to the streaming client device that includes one or more pointers that point to content segments of the particular content.

  • Publication number: 20190314009
    Abstract: Provided herein are trans-abdominal gastric systems and related methods that are useful in a range of applications for accessing internal regions of a patient. A cannula has internal and external anchors to reliably secure the anchor to an abdominal wall of the patient. An introducer with a capture element facilitates system placement by retrograde introduction. Upon completion, the system is removed and the gastric and abdominal wall incision and defect closed by sutures specially connected to the system that ensures reliable system removal and suture closure in a configuration that is outside the abdominal wall. The systems and methods are particularly suited for use with conventional laparoscopic or endoscopic medical instruments.

  • Publication number: 20190199770
    Abstract: A scheme for modulating an adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming client engaged in a current ABR streaming session. In one implementation, a determination is made whether a wireless UE device executing the ABR streaming client is approaching a radio white spot area. If so, a video buffer of the ABR client is configured to preload lower quality video segments to last for the duration of the radio white spot area. One or more ABR client controls may be selectively deactivated while the wireless UE device is in the radio white spot area.

  • Patent number: 10282913
    Abstract: A markerless augmented reality (AR) can track 2D feature points among video frames, generate 2D point clouds and 3D point clouds based thereon, and match a 3D model against 3D point cloud to obtain proper positional information of the model with respect to a frame. The AR system can use the 3D model with the obtained positional information to render and project AR content to a user's view. Additionally, the AR system can maintain associations between frames and 3D model positional information for search and retrieval.
