  • Publication number: 20190310971
    Abstract: An apparatus, method, system, and computer-readable medium are provided for maintaining contact information associated with a contact. In some embodiments a request associated with a contact may be received. Contact information may be obtained from one or more external or internal sources. One or more confidence scores may be generated for the obtained contact information and for one or more values received with the request. Based on the confidence score(s), one or more values associated with the contact may be incorporated in one or more data stores. In some embodiments, suggestions for contact related information may be generated. Responses to the suggestions may be used to update the generated confidence score(s).

  • Publication number: 20190268672
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatuses are described for coordinating output of related media content on a variety of devices and device types is disclosed. A content distribution network may store associations between a primary media content file and a set of rules. A rules engine may be initialized with the set of rules and a set of facts pertinent to the output of the content. The set of facts may include information describing secondary devices associated with a viewer of the content. Events, such as those associated with output of the primary media content, may trigger output of secondary media content on the associated devices.

  • Patent number: 10217348
    Abstract: Methods, systems, computer-readable media, and apparatuses for processing sensor data are presented. An example method comprises accessing, by a computing device at a premises, sensor information associated with a plurality of sensors located at the premises, receiving, by the computing device, first sensor data from a first security sensor of the plurality of sensors, receiving, by the computing device, second sensor data from a second security sensor of the plurality of sensors, and in response to determining, by the computing device and based on the sensor information, that the first sensor data is associated with a higher priority than the second sensor data processing, by the computing device, the first sensor data, and transmitting, by the computing device, the second sensor data to a remote computing device for processing, wherein the remote computing device is at a location different from the premises.

  • Patent number: 9952827
    Abstract: Methods, computing devices, and systems that apply equalization settings for particular audio devices based on a content audio profile. A computing device may detect at least one audio device connected to the computing device and request a device sound profile of the at least one audio device from a database remote from the computing device. Computing device may receive the device sound profile of the at least one audio device from the remote database. The computing device may receive content comprising an audio component and a video component and a content audio profile associated with the audio component. The computing device can determine whether to adjust equalizer settings for sound reproduction of the audio component based on the audio profile and the device sound profile of the at least one audio device.

  • Publication number: 20170272818
    Abstract: An example method can comprise receiving content for presentation at a user device. The content can comprise a plurality of sections, and each section can comprise a video portion and an audio portion. The user device can also receive content metadata regarding one or more features of the content, where the features of the content comprise one or more candidate sections of the content for modification. The user device can apply one or more rules to the received content based on the content metadata to modify one or more of the audio portion and the video portion of at least one section of the content, creating modified content, and can cause presentation of the modified content on a display device.

  • Publication number: 20170257410
    Abstract: Aspects discussed herein relate to systems, apparatuses, and methods to identify, in near real-time, points of interest of viewers of a content item concurrently being transmitted in a linear stream to the viewers. A point of interest may refer to a segment of the content item that caused a surge in user reactions. During a subsequent transmission of the content item, identified points of interests may be displayed to the viewer. The viewer may select the point of interest in the content item to begin playback of the point of interest in the content item. Further, a playlist of points of interest in one or more content items may be generated for playback of the points of interest to a viewer.

  • Patent number: 9715818
    Abstract: Methods, systems, computer-readable media, and apparatuses for processing sensor data are presented. In some embodiments, a security server may receive sensor data from one or more sensors that are located at a premises. Subsequently, the security server may classify a first portion of the received sensor data as critical sensor data, (e.g., based on the first portion of the received sensor data being associated with a critical function). In addition, the security server may classify a second portion of the received sensor data as non-critical sensor data (e.g., based on the second portion of the received sensor data being associated with a non-critical function). Thereafter, the security server may process the critical sensor data, and further may provide the non-critical sensor data to a network server for processing.
