  • Patent number: 9959415
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for use in presenting information from a plurality of security domains. A first request for first data from a first data source and a second request for second data from a second data source are transmitted by a computing device. The first data source is associated with a first security domain, and the second data source is associated with a second security domain. A bridge computing device forwards the first request and/or the second request based on determining that the requests are authorized. The first data and the second data may be received and combined by the computing device.

  • Patent number: 7349553
    Abstract: A visible first watermark and invisible second and third watermarks are embedded in digital media content, in order to protect the media content from piracy. The visible first watermark protects the media content during distribution and storage, while the invisible second and third watermarks are embedded in to identify an owner and displaying entity, respectively. The second and third watermark keys can be used to detect the associated watermarks for forensic purposes. The first, second and third watermark keys are symmetric keys. A distribution entity embeds the visible first watermark in the media content using the first watermark key and embeds an invisible second watermark in the media content using the second watermark key.

  • Patent number: 7234169
    Abstract: One or more embodiments of the invention provide a method, apparatus, system, and article of manufacture for monitoring components of a digital cinema system. A digital cinema system utilizes an exhibitor system (that has one or more components) to display media content. A configuration of the exhibitor system is stored in the exhibitor system. The integrity of the configuration is then determined by querying each of the components. Software agents on each of the components respond to the query. Based on the configuration and the responses received, the integrity of the exhibitor system is determined.

  • Patent number: 7209559
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and article of manufacture provide the ability to securely distribute digital media content from a first entity to a second entity through an intermediate entity. A studio token, comprising information utilized to generate a first key, is generated and distributed to the first entity. A theater token, comprising information utilized to generate a second key, is also generated and then distributed to the second entity. A data file is accepted from the first entity. The data file comprises the media content encrypted according to the first key generated from the studio token, and an authorization header that provides information utilized to generate the second key. The data file is further encrypted according to a third key wherein such further encryption comprises adding a new header to the encrypted media content. The encrypted data file is then distributed to the second entity.

  • Patent number: 7146831
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a lockable latch for securing together a first panel to a second panel or keeper on a second panel or frame. The latch has a housing, a lockplug configured for a key, a lock collar and a return spring. When a user turns a key to rotate the lockplug and thereby lock the lockplug, the lock collar rotates through 90 degrees and a portion thereof occupies the space or gap between an edge of the first panel and a portion of the latch housing configured and dimensioned to receive the edge of the first panel or frame. As a result, space between an edge of the housing and the first panel is taken up by a portion of the locking collar due to rotation of the locking collar in the housing.

  • Patent number: 7131145
    Abstract: One or more embodiments of the invention provide a method, apparatus, system, and article of manufacture for monitoring components of a digital cinema system. A configuration of an exhibitor system (that has one or more components) of a digital cinema system is stored. Each of the one or more components is then polled (e.g., using radio frequency) based on the configuration. A determination is then made regarding the integrity of the exhibitor system based on the configuration and results of the polling. Further, a global positioning system (GPS) location and an identification (of a component) is received from an exhibitor system component. Based on the identification and the polling, a determination may be made regarding whether the identification is for an unauthorized component and consequently the location of the component for initiating enforcement action.

  • Publication number: 20040256879
    Abstract: A fragmentation-resistant instrument panel is provided which includes an outer layer having an inner surface and a core of expanded plastic foam of a predetermined shape. The core is secured to the inner surface of the outer layer. An inner layer is fixedly secured to the inner surface of the core to encapsulate the foam. A V-shaped groove in the core is provided where the groove has an open side open to the to the inner surface of the inner layer and a closed side adjacent to the inner surface of the outerlayer. The instrument panel will be resistant to fragmentation when an impact force is applied to the inner layer by the air bag and the V-shaped groove provides for a hinge point when the air bag is deployed such that the instrument panel directs the air bag toward a vehicle occupant. A method of manufacturing the instrument panel is also provided.

  • Patent number: 6821465
    Abstract: A process for manufacturing a door trim panel with an integral soft armrest pad is provided which includes providing male and female steam chest mold halves, loading and restraining a cover material onto the female mold half, closing the male mold half to a fill position to form a cavity, inserting a divider into the cavity to separate the cavity into a low density volume and a high density volume, filling the high density volume with first polymeric material, filling the low density volume of the mold cavity with second polymeric material, withdrawing the divider from the mold cavity, and heating the first and second polymeric materials such that the first and second polymeric materials are melt bonded together, including at positions where particles from the first polymeric material contact particles from the second polymeric material. The low density volume creates the soft armrest pad.
