  • Patent number: 7519265
    Abstract: Recorded audiovisual programs are aggregated for archival storage on another storage medium, such as a DVD. As related programs are temporarily recorded on a DVR, the lengths of the programs are summed and compared to the recording capacity of the DVD. When a sufficient number of programs have been temporarily recorded, a message is presented prompting the user to transfer the recordings to a DVD. Portions of the recorded programs, such as commercial messages, may be edited or deleted before transfer to the DVD. When programs are recorded onto a DVD, program information may also be recorded to assist in navigating among the recorded programs. The program information may also be used for the purpose of printing appropriate labels using a personal computer system.

  • Publication number: 20080022296
    Abstract: The method and apparatus operates in a video recorder and playback unit to identify selected broadcast segments, such as commercial advertisements, of a television signal in real-time for the purpose of either suspending recording or advancing playback of the television signal during each unwanted segment. A signature pattern associated with each segment of the television signal is detected and compared to stored signature patterns representative of selected segments such as commercial advertisement segments. If the signature pattern matches one of the stored signature patterns, the segment is thereby immediately identified as being one of the selected segments and is processed in real-time to control operation of the video recorder/player. If the signature pattern of the segment does not match any of the stored signature patterns, the segment is analyzed to determine whether the segment is nevertheless a selected segment and, if so, its signature pattern is stored along with the stored signature patterns.

  • Publication number: 20070248314
    Abstract: Segments of a recorded video program that are classified to be skipped during replay are scanned through at a predetermined rate, which is independent of viewer control. While faster than the normal play mode, the rate of forward scan is such that the content of the video segments being skipped can still be readily perceived. While in this controlled forward scan mode, viewer control of the scanning rate may be disabled. A viewer-controlled input may be provided so that a portion of a video segment being skipped can be viewed at a normal rate of play starting at the beginning of the portion that the viewer wishes to see. Once that portion of the video segment has been played at normal speed, the video playback device automatically switches to a predetermined mode of operation. Segments of a recorded video signal may be automatically rearranged for playback, allowing for all segments of one type to be played back contiguously, followed by playback of all segments of a second type.

  • Patent number: 7241237
    Abstract: The present invention provides a game ball with a transient marking feature that may be used on any court surface. No preparation of the court surface is required. The game ball is coated with a temporary marking agent that is encapsulated or otherwise sealed against exposure to the air. When the ball contacts a surface with sufficient velocity, a small quantity of the marking agent is liberated to provide a visible mark on the surface at the point of contact. Similar to a “disappearing ink”, the marking agent dissipates after being released from the microcapsules.

  • Patent number: 7110658
    Abstract: A video recording and playback device (10) incorporates a processor (114) for processing the video signal to detect the presence of commercial messages. Video and audio event detectors (102, 104) detect the presence of events in the signal as it is recorded. The timing relationship of the detected events is analyzed to classify the video segments between events as program material or as commercial messages. After a program is recorded, control marks are generated (132) to indicate the beginning and end of commercial groups so that they will be skipped during subsequent replay of the recorded program.
