  • Patent number: 10286626
    Abstract: Implementations described and claimed herein include a cellular cushioning system comprising a first matrix of void cells, and a second matrix of void cells opposing the first matrix of void cells, wherein one or more peaks of each void cell in the second matrix is attached to one or more peaks of each void cell in the first matrix, and wherein the void cells of the first matrix have a higher cell resolution than the void cells of the second matrix. In another implementation, a method of manufacturing a cushioning system includes molding a first matrix of void cells, molding a second matrix of void cells, the void cells of the first matrix having a higher cell resolution than the void cells in the second matrix, and attaching peak surfaces of the void cells of the first matrix and peak surfaces of the void cells of the second matrix together.

  • Publication number: 20190139138
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for fast track routing of streaming data as between multiple compute resources. For example, the system may comprise a processor, reconfigurable logic device, a shared memory that is mapped into a kernel and user space of an operating system for the processor, a network protocol stack, and driver code for execution within the kernel space of the operating system while the operating system is in the kernel mode. The driver code can be configured to (1) maintain a kernel level interface into the network protocol stack, (2) copy the streaming data from the network protocol stack into the shared memory, wherein the copy operation is performed by the driver code without the operating system transitioning to the user mode, and (3) facilitate DMA transfers of data from the shared memory into the reconfigurable logic device for processing thereby.

  • Publication number: 20180007381
    Abstract: Video foreground and background detection is performed on a received video sequence on a macroblock by macroblock basis using motion vector encoding information associated with each macroblock. Some of the macroblocks in each frame, for example, edge or corner macroblocks, may be exempt from the foreground and background detection. The detection information, along with the video data, is passed to an image stabilization algorithm that prepares the video for subsequent video compression.

  • Publication number: 20180007269
    Abstract: A neural network learning algorithm obtains a fingerprint of a video sequence. Using the fingerprint, selection of an appropriate video stabilization algorithm, and its parameter settings, is performed. The video thus stabilized is made more appealing for viewing and easier for subsequent video compression. The neural network may be trained during a training phase to select a correct fingerprint of each video sequence based on the effectiveness of resulting video stabilization and/or compression.

  • Publication number: 20170078686
    Abstract: Various of the disclosed embodiments relate to multiple video encoders that are used to simultaneously encode a video using encoders configured using different encoding parameters. A segment selector selects an encoded version of the encoded video segment using operational criteria such as video quality and bandwidth. A configuration determination module may analyze the video segment to make a decision about which encoding parameter configurations may be suitable for encoding the video segment. The configuration determination module may be trainable, based on past encoding results.
