  • Patent number: 9448761
    Abstract: An approach is provided for providing audio-based control for at least one device based on changes in the rendering of audio information. A control platform causes, at least in part, a transmission of audio information from at least one device to an audio playback assembly for rendering. The control platform further determines at least one indication of a change in the rendering, wherein the at least one indication is based, at least in part, on one or more controls associated with the audio playback assembly. The control platform also processes and/or facilitates a processing of the at least one indication to cause, at least in part, an execution of at least one function for controlling the rendering of the audio information.

  • Patent number: 8966543
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided that combine Open Mobile Alliance Mobile Broadcast Services (OMA BCAST) with different bearers, such as China Multimedia Mobile Broadcasting (CMMB) by associating service-related identifiers within an OMA BCAST Electronic Service Guide (ESG) with CMMB bearer-specific parameters. Furthermore, associating IP source and/or destination address pairs of a service with the location of the service within the CMMB bearer can be achieved and used with unicast, multicast, and broadcast environments. Further still, systems and methods are provided that allow for ESG bootstrapping, where a desired electronic service guide can be discovered by bootstrapping, e.g., OMA BCAST ESG.

  • Publication number: 20110023070
    Abstract: Broadcast configuration data such as service information, program specific information and electronic service guide data may be misconfigured in non-standard or misconfigured broadcast networks. A network and data analysis server may be used to monitor network broadcasts for configuration information, check whether the configuration information is valid and transmit updated information to a central service discovery database system. The service discovery database system may be used to repair misconfigured or incomplete configuration information before storing it to a database. Terminals with fast service discovery enabled or that have received misconfigured data through the broadcast network may request configuration data from the service discovery database system. Additionally, terminals and/or network analysis servers may receive broadcast signals through a first network connection while communicating with the database system over a second network connection.

  • Patent number: 7848328
    Abstract: Components of a transmitted service delivering multiple versions of content are mapped to streams carrying data for those multiple versions. The data streams are encapsulated into User Datagram Protocol (UDP) packets; the UDP destination port fields of the packets are given component-identifying values. A user equipment (UE) receiving the transmitted service identifies desired components based on the UDP destination port field values. The UE further encapsulates desired component UDP packets into Internet Protocol (IP) packets, and may assign component-identifying values to fields of the IP packets (e.g., the IP source address and/or IP destination address).
