  • Publication number: 20210182434
    Abstract: In an example, there is provided a method for attesting to a management state of a device platform configuration, based on a signed data structure that represents a device management status and a time-based value from a secure cryptoprocessor of the device. The signed data structure is sent to a management system for validation based on a comparison to the state of the cryptoprocessor at the time of signing the data structure.

  • Patent number: 10805099
    Abstract: A method and device for interlacing data from multiple disparate broadcast and streaming services that allow for the determination of duplicates in the data from the different services. The duplicates can be determined by comparing the information accompanying the data from the different services and then removed to provide interlaced data. A user may selectably output the interlaced data together with original data from the different services.

  • Publication number: 20200084387
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to systems and methods for placing a camera into a low power mode. An example device may include a memory and a processor. The processor is configured to determine that the first camera is to be placed into a low power mode. The first camera is in an active mode and has a first frame capture rate. The processor further is configured to generate and output a command for placing the first camera into the low power mode. Execution of the command causes the first camera to increase the first frame capture rate to a second frame capture rate and go into the low power mode from the active mode after increasing the first frame capture rate to the second frame capture rate.

  • Patent number: 10578793
    Abstract: Color-scanning grating-based backlighting includes a color scanning protocol to provide different colors of light in different regions of a plate light guide with an intervening dark region. A color-scanning grating-based backlight includes the plate light guide and a diffraction grating configured to diffractively couple out a portion of a guided light beam as a coupled-out light beam directed away from a plate light guide surface at a predetermined principal angular direction. The backlight further includes a multicolor light source configured to provide the different colors of light to the plate light guide as the guided light beam according to the color scanning protocol. Provided light of a first color in a first region is separated from provided light of a second color in a second region one or both by the intervening dark region and by a light-confining wall of the plate light guide.

  • Patent number: 10200623
    Abstract: Methods, devices, and systems for determining one or more image capture settings for use in flash photography are disclosed. In some aspects a device includes a memory and a processor that is coupled to a first camera, a second camera, a flash unit, and the memory. The processor can be configured to cause the flash unit to emit a flash during a flash operation having a first portion and a second portion. The processor can be further configured to cause the first camera to receive a plurality of image frames during the first portion, determine at least one image capture setting based on at least one of the plurality of frames received by the first camera, and cause the second camera to capture one or more image frames during the second portion based on the determined image capture setting.

  • Publication number: 20180032710
    Abstract: In embodiments, apparatuses, methods and storage media are described that are associated with performing identity-based access control for content. A content consumption device may be configured to control access to presented content based on identities of one or more content consumers that are physically proximate to the device. The content consumption device may be configured to perform facial and/or voice recognition on one or more content consumers to determine an identity for the one or more content consumers. The content consumption device may be configured to determine access permissions for the identified content consumers. At various times, access to a piece of content may change based on who is physically proximate to the content consumption device. Other embodiments may be described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 9699463
    Abstract: In embodiments, apparatuses, methods and storage media are described that are associated with content distribution. In embodiments, an encoder may be configured to encode portions of content, such as video and/or audio data, utilizing different sets of encoding control variable settings. The different sets of encoding control variable settings may include different resolutions, different frame rates, and/or different compression levels. In embodiments, different segments and/or different portions of a single segment of data may be encoded using different sets of encoding control variable settings. In embodiments, the sets of encoding control variable settings may be selected based on quality of the encoded video and/or audio data. Instances of video and/or audio data encoded with different sets may be compared to the data from which they were generated to determine one or more quality metrics. One of the instances may then be selected for provisioning to a content consumption device.
