  • Publication number: 20100180272
    Abstract: A system for facilitating sale of a virtualized information handling system. The virtualized information handling system may be a consumer electronics type information handling system or a small business type information handling system. In operation the system offers a virtualization enabled information handling system at a point of sale. The offer can include an offer for an integrated (i.e., built-in) Productivity virtual machine as well as an integrated web browser. During the sale of the information handling system, the customer is provided with an opportunity to purchase additional virtual machines as part of an up-sell offer. If the customer opts not to purchase additional virtual machines, the customer can decide to purchase one or more of the proffered additional virtual machines at a later point. Each purchased virtual machine is uniquely linked to the customer.

  • Publication number: 20060227768
    Abstract: A system and method for communicating between a local computing resource and a remote user interface includes a segmented switch for sending Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIE) packets. The segmented switch includes a local switch segment that is associated with the local computing resource and a remote switch segment associated with the remote user interface. The local switch segment and the remote switch segment are connected by a link and allow for the transmission of information between the local computing resource and the remote user interface using PCIE packets to transmit keyboard, video and mouse information between the local computing resource and the remote user interface.

  • Patent number: 5508734
    Abstract: A system for electronic imaging of a hemispheric field of view includes a camera for receiving optical images of the field of view and for producing output data corresponding to the optical images. The camera includes an optical assembly for producing images throughout a hemispheric field of view for optical conveyance to an imaging device or photographic film. The optical system assembly has lens components that selectively emphasize the peripheral content of the hemispheric field of view. An electronic imaging device within the camera or a film-to-digital date conversion system provides digitized output signals to input image memory or electronic storage devices. A transform processor selectively accesses and processes the digitized output signals from the input image memory according to user-defined criteria and stores the signals in output image memory. The signals in the output image memory can then be displayed according to the user-defined criteria.
