  • Patent number: 9939527
    Abstract: A subsea measurement system (400) comprises a first reference beacon (110) disposed at a first known location, a second reference beacon (112) disposed at a second known location, and an acoustic communications module (302) for coupling to a subsea element to be monitored. The acoustic communications module (302) is capable of moving, when in use, relative to the first reference beacon (110) and the second reference beacon (112). The acoustic communications module (302) also comprises a processing resource and is arranged to determine first range-related data to the first reference beacon (110) in response to receipt of a first signal by the acoustic communications module (302) from the first reference beacon (110) and second range-related data to the second reference beacon (112) in response to receipt by the acoustic communication module (302) of a second signal from the second reference beacon (112).

  • Patent number: 9942390
    Abstract: First call identification information is stored at a network-connected device. The first call identification information identifies a call between an initiating device connected to an Internet Protocol (IP)-based network and a called device connected to the IP-based network. The call identified by the first call identification information is established through a telephone carrier network. Second call identification information is stored in the network-connected device. A determination is made that the first call identification information and the second call identification information identify the call from the initiating device to the called device. The call is connected through the IP-based network so as to avoid the telephone carrier network based upon the determining that the first call identification information and the second call identification information identify the call.

  • Publication number: 20180060933
    Abstract: Dynamically generating a uniquely customized wall art hanging template to help a user hang one or more items of customized wall art as they appear in an electronic display based on the user's selections and product customizations. A user customizes an electronically generated layout of items of art resulting in curated layout of customized items that can be purchased and hung on a wall in accordance with a corresponding customized wall art template. To aid in the accurate hanging of items a uniquely generated wall art template includes customized outlines of each item of art together with customized marks that locate the proper positions for hanging each item to match the appearance of the curated layout in the electronic display. The customized outlines can include outlines of reference points in the room that help the user locate the proper positions for hanging each item to match the appearance of the curated layout in the electronic display.

  • Patent number: 9894109
    Abstract: Messages sent from an initiating device to a called device to establish a telephonic communication session between the initiating device and the called device are received at a network device. One of a first network or a second network is selected to establish a first communication path of the telephonic communication session. The first network comprises an Internet Protocol network to which the initiating device and the called device are connected, and the second network comprises a public switched telephone network. Messages are sent to the called device via the one of the first network or the second network to establish the first communication path. A second communication path is established between the initiating device and the called device through another of the first network or the second network. At least a subset of data also being sent over the first communication path is sent via the second communication path.

  • Patent number: 9832087
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for facilitating a connection between a cloud networking platform and a unified communication system, where the cloud networking platform hosts communication services including real-time communications for client devices, and the unified communication system hosts communication services including real-time communications for on-prem devices that are associated with the unified communication system. Events associated with the cloud networking platform are monitored at the unified communication system, via a cloud connector device of the unified communication system, where events are associated with users who are registered with client devices and on-prem devices, and the events include real-time communications. A notification is provided to one or more client devices registered to a first user in response to an on-prem device also registered to the first user receiving a real-time communication request from a device of another user.

  • Publication number: 20170052502
    Abstract: A print head can collect toner and contamination during use in an image forming device. A Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) moves across the face of the print head when withdrawn. A cleaning unit, which can be a silicone blade, foam pad or other suitable material, is attached or integral to the CRU such that when the CRU is withdrawn the cleaning unit wipes the surface of the print head. Insertion of the original CRU or a new CRU would again wiped the cleaning unit over the lens surface providing the required cleaning action. Accordingly, this cleaning operation happens automatically when the CRU is replaced, and also the CRU can be pulled out and re-inserted to perform the cleaning operation if contamination is detected or at other maintenance points.

  • Patent number: 9360820
    Abstract: Printing apparatuses include, among other components, a media path transporting sheets of print media in a process direction. A transfer station is located at a first location of the media path, and a fusing station is located at a second location of the media path (the second location is closer to the end of the media path (in the process direction) relative to the first location). Also, a single blower is located adjacent the fusing station, and two outlets receive air from the single blower. A first outlet (of the two outlets) provides air to the transfer station to reduce the temperature of the transfer station, and a second outlet (of the two outlets) is located between the transfer station and the fusing station and directs the sheets of print media toward one side of the media path.

  • Patent number: 9363368
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a communication is established between two endpoints. The communication session may be a video call or an audio call. The communication session may be managed by a call manager using, for example, voice over internet protocol and session initiation protocol. One of the endpoints initiates recording the communication session. The call manager facilitates recording the communication session based on a recording policy associated with the initiating endpoint. The recording policy may specify far end recording, near end recording, or a prioritized order of far and near end recording. The call manager selected an anchor network device for copying the communication session based on the recording policy.
