  • Publication number: 20200059684
    Abstract: A method includes identifying, by a server, a content location assigned to a first content slot of a schedule template defining a display rotation loop based on multiple content slots. Each of the content slots in the schedule is associated with slot criteria, and the schedule template is associated with a digital display. The server generates schedule data that indicates the display rotation loop, the content location, and the slot criteria. Dynamic content retrievable from the content location is displayable at the digital display at a first time. The first time is based on the first slot criteria of the first content slot. The server transmits the schedule data via a network to the digital display.

  • Patent number: 10491933
    Abstract: A method includes generating, by a server, an inventory corresponding to a plurality of time slots. The method also includes receiving data corresponding to a plurality of inventory bookings associated with the inventory. A subset of time slots that are assigned to a digital display of a plurality of networked digital displays may be identified by the server based on the data corresponding to the plurality of bookings. Media content that is assigned to each slot of the subset of time slots is identified by the server. The method may further include generating, based on slot criteria corresponding to the subset of time slots, a schedule template that defines a rotation loop. The media content is displayable on the digital display at times defined by the display rotation loop. The schedule template is transmitted to the digital display via a network.

  • Publication number: 20190262201
    Abstract: A patient support apparatus may include a support surface configured to conduct air along a top face of the support surface so that heat and moisture from a patient lying on the support surface are drawn away from the top face of the support surface. An opening may be formed in a side of the support surface. A cavity may extend from the opening into the support surface. An inlet port may be positioned within the cavity and fluidly coupled to the top face. A blower assembly may be configured to position within the cavity. The blower assembly may have an outlet port that couples to the inlet port when the blower assembly is positioned within the cavity. The blower assembly may conduct air through the inlet port to the top face of the support surface.

  • Patent number: 5524554
    Abstract: A pallet used for stacking various types of catering and food service equipment is disclosed. The pallet has a floor which includes an upper surface and a lower surface. A forward wall and end wall and a pair of side walls extend upwardly from the top surface. A pair of rear legs, a pair of intermediate legs, and a pair of forward legs extend downward from the lower surface of the floor. The forward and intermediate legs define openings which will receive and interlock with the handles of the catering equipment. Likewise, the rear and intermediate legs define a pair of rear openings which will receive the upwardly extending handles of the catering equipment thereby interlocking the pallet and the catering equipment. The pallet also includes a downwardly extending rear support beam which has a transverse slot disposed therein. The transverse slot is a means for receiving handles of certain types of catering equipment so that the catering equipment and pallet will interlock.

  • Patent number: 4795336
    Abstract: A RIM apparatus has a separate hydraulically actuated monomer dispensing system associated with one of at least two different fluid chemical monomers to be mixed and molded. Each system is connected with a separate hydraulic fluid delivery cylinder (one for each monomer) for receiving hydraulic fluid therefrom and is operable for dispensing the associated monomer to a RIM mixing head and mold at a rate proportional to the rate that said hydraulic fluid is delivered thereto from the connected delivery cylinder. Each delivery cylinder is supported at a preselected position with its axis spaced radially from a reference axis and at least one thereof is bodily adjustable radially with respect to said reference axis and to the axis of another delivery cylinder. Each delivery cylinder discharges hydraulic fluid at a rate proportional to the rate of movement of an associated piston therein.
