  • Patent number: 10225536
    Abstract: Sink devices are provided that increase quality of displayed images by dynamically integrating higher fidelity update frames into a base stream encoded using an encoding technique (e.g., chroma-subsampling and/or another lossless encoding technique). Use of base image frames enables backward compatibility with existing technology and serves as a baseline for bandwidth scaling. The fidelity update frames may include raw image data, lossy, or losslessly compressed image data, and/or additional subsampled image data. The image data included in the fidelity update frames may apply to the entire base image frame or a portion thereof. The fidelity update frames may include incremental data or complete, high fidelity image data for a portion of an entire image. The sink devices may store and implement fidelity management policies that control operation of the devices to balance resource consumption against fidelity to meet the needs of specific operational environments.

  • Patent number: 10033789
    Abstract: A method for executing a connectionless wireless media content session includes receiving a MAC address by an electronic device. The MAC address may be received out-of-band. The address is monitored for received media content over a wireless channel from a transmitter. The broadcast wireless channel and media content codec information may also be received out of band. The received media content is received over a Wi-Fi MAC layer using RTP without an IP connection with the transmitter. The received media content may be rendered on the electronic device.

  • Patent number: 9832521
    Abstract: Techniques related to encoding image content for transmission and display via a remote device with improved latency and efficiency are discussed. Such techniques may include skipping one or more of frame capture, encode, packetization, and transmission for a frame based on a skip indicator. One or more selective updates may be captured for the skipped frame and integrated into an encode of a subsequent non-skipped frame, which may be packetized and transmitted for to the remote device for presentment to a user.

  • Publication number: 20170180758
    Abstract: A tile concept allows independent encoding and decoding of regions of the video frames combined with changes in the way that the coded tiles are packetized and queued for transport. After the coded tile network abstraction layer (NAL) units are packetized into MPEG-TS frames, the more important tile data is put in the network abstraction layer at the head of the queue while the less important data is inserted later in the queue. Audio can also be accorded high priority. For a given link bandwidth/latency environment, the important data is transmitted first and the less important data can be discarded at the transmitter with less impact on the user perceived quality.

  • Publication number: 20170178590
    Abstract: A higher frame rate (a multiple of the original display frame rate at the host) is exploited at a display sink device to opportunistically insert new decoded frames for display at the higher refresh rate of the sink. In other words, delayed frames arriving at the sink may get a chance to be displayed during the higher refresh rate cycle, thus offering a better (“smoother”) viewing experience along with improved interactivity or “responsiveness.

  • Publication number: 20170139661
    Abstract: In accordance with some embodiments, instead of always defaulting the primary display on or off, while mirroring its display to a secondary display, a sensor reading may be used to decide whether the primary display should be on or off. In other words, depending on a condition sensed by one or more sensors, a decision is made whether to turn the primary display on if the default setting is off or off if the default setting is on.
