  • Patent number: 9363568
    Abstract: Systems and methods for receiving product data for products featured in a media asset are described. In some embodiments, the system includes control circuitry that receives from a server data for products featured in a media asset and timestamps for the media asset associated with the products featured in the media asset. The control circuitry generates for display a list including one or more of the products. The control circuitry receives from user input circuitry a selection of a product in the list. The control circuitry transmits to the server a request for a portion of the media asset featuring the selected product based on a timestamp associated with the selected product.

  • Patent number: 9352923
    Abstract: A web-guiding system for guiding a web of media along a transport path including a web-guiding roller located in proximity to a fixed web-guiding structure having a pattern of air holes formed through its exterior surface. The web of media travels around the web-guiding roller with the web of media contacting the web-guiding roller through a wrap angle of less than 5 degrees, and travels around the fixed web-guiding structure through a wrap angle of more than 10 degrees. An air source provides an air flow through the air holes formed lifting the web of media away from the web-guiding structure such that the web of media is substantially not in contact with the web-guiding structure.

  • Publication number: 20150379118
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed herein for automatically adjusting media playlists, and media assets within those playlists, based on one or more activities performed by a user. For example, a media guidance application may select media assets for inclusion in a media playlist that correspond to particular activities. Moreover, the media playlist may be structured such that the select media assets are automatically presented while the user is performing the particular activities.

  • Publication number: 20150239690
    Abstract: A media-guiding system includes a media-guiding roller having a roller axis and an exterior surface having one or more grooves formed around the exterior surface. A media travels along a transport path past the media-guiding roller with a first side of the media facing the exterior surface of the web-guiding roller. An air source provides an air flow into one or more of the grooves, the air flow being directed between the first side of the media and the exterior surface of the media-guiding roller thereby producing a Bernoulli force to draw the media toward the exterior surface of the media-guiding roller and providing an increased traction between the media and the media-guiding roller.

  • Publication number: 20150239700
    Abstract: A web-guiding system for guiding a web of media along a transport path including a fixed web-guiding structure and a web-guiding roller. The fixed web-guiding structure includes two sections, each having a pattern of air holes formed through a convex exterior surface. The web-guiding roller is located between the first and second fixed web-guiding structure sections. At least one air source provides an air flow through the air holes in the fixed web-guiding structure sections. The web of media travels around the web-guiding roller and the fixed web-guiding structure through a wrap angle of more than 10 degrees, with the web of media contacting an exterior surface of the web-guiding roller. The air flow through the air holes lifts the web of media away from the first and second web-guiding structure sections.
