  • Publication number: 20200221173
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and systems to help disambiguate channel identification in a scenario where a video fingerprint of media content matches multiple reference video fingerprints corresponding respectively with multiple different channels. Given such a multi-match situation, an entity could disambiguate based on an audio component of the media content, such as by further determining that an audio fingerprint of the media content at issue matches an audio fingerprint of just one of the multiple channels, thereby establishing that that is the channel on which the media content being rendered by the media presentation device is arriving.

  • Publication number: 20200173381
    Abstract: A method of controlling a hybrid electric vehicle is provided. The method includes determining whether a condition for turning off an engine is satisfied and determining engine clutch disengaging time and residual purge gas consuming time from engine driving status information when the condition is satisfied. Engine clutch-engaged charging control time is determined from the engine clutch disengaging time and the residual purge gas consuming time. The method includes closing a purge control solenoid valve and starting to perform engine clutch-engaged charging control. The engine clutch-engaged charging control is maintained for the determined engine clutch-engaged charging control time and then engine clutch disengaging control is performed for the determined engine clutch disengaging time. The engine is stopped after the engine clutch disengaging control is performed.

  • Publication number: 20200128295
    Abstract: A computing system will compare various reference fingerprints each representing a reference media stream broadcast on a different respective known channel, and the computing system will determine that a plurality of the reference fingerprints match each other, thus defining a multi-match group of the matching reference fingerprints. Further, the computing system will determine that a query fingerprint representing a media stream being rendered by a media presentation device matches the multi-match group, thus raising a question of which channel is carrying the media stream that is being rendered by the media presentation device. By considering one or more attributes of the query fingerprint, the server may then disambiguate and thereby determine the channel at issue, and the server may in turn take channel-specific action.
