  • Patent number: 10506273
    Abstract: A device is configured to receive media content from a mobile device. The device may receive security information from the mobile device. The security information may indicate a setting for presenting the media content on a display device. The device may store the media content and the security information. The device may receive an instruction to present the media content on the display device. The device may determine whether the media content is permitted to be presented on the display device based on the security information. The device may selectively cause the display device to present the media content based on whether the media content is permitted to be presented on the display device.

  • Patent number: 10182269
    Abstract: A system receives one or more content streams for a program including a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) Live Streaming (HLS) master manifest file for the program, HLS media segments having different bitrate variants, and HLS media manifest files for each of the different bitrate variants. The system encapsulates the HLS master manifest file, the HLS media segments, and the HLS media manifest files into Internet Protocol/User Datagram Protocol (IP/UDP) packets and sends the IP/UDP packets via multicast to video serving offices. Network devices in the video serving offices extract from the IP/UDP packets the HLS master manifest file, the HLS media segments, and the HLS media manifest files. The network devices send to a cache device the HLS media segments and the HLS media manifest files; and forward the IP/UDP packets via multicast to devices in customer premises.

  • Patent number: 9852274
    Abstract: A device may receive and store first device information (first information), associated with a media client device (media client), and a first security key (a first key) from a content provider network (CPN); and may receive a provisioning request from the media client, including second device information (second information), based on the media client detecting an absence of a physical network connection to receive media content. The device may compare the first information and the second information and may request a second security key (a second key) based on the first information matching the second information. The device may receive the second key from the media client and may compare the first key and the second key. The device may enable the media client to establish a secure connection to the CPN, via a network associated with the device, based on the first key matching the second key.
