  • Patent number: 10304471
    Abstract: An audio signal (X) is represented by a bitstream (B) segmented into frames. An audio processing system (500) comprises a buffer (510) and a decoding section (520). The buffer joins sets of audio data (D1; D2, . . . , DN) carried by N respective frames (F1, F2, . . . , FN) into one decodable set of audio data (D) corresponding to a first frame rate and to a first number of samples of the audio signal per frame. The frames have a second frame rate corresponding to a second number of samples of the audio signal per frame. The first number of samples is N times the second number of samples. The decoding section decodes the decodable set of audio data into a segment of the audio signal by at least employing signal synthesis, based on the decodable set of audio data, with a stride corresponding to the first number of samples of the audio signal.

  • Publication number: 20190037283
    Abstract: Personalized audio metadata is generated based on audio program elements and presentation configuration metadata to specify personalized audio presentations for a media presentation. The personalized audio metadata is transmitted to an adaptive streaming client in response to receiving a media presentation request by the adaptive streaming client for the media presentation. Audio program elements of a specific personalized audio presentation are transmitted to the adaptive streaming client in response to receiving subsequent media streaming requests for the audio program elements.

  • Publication number: 20150098758
    Abstract: A synthetic turf border system that utilizes multiple turf border elements of the same or different lengths and shapes to provide a flexible synthetic turf border system that cleanly affixes synthetic turf around an entire area regardless of the shape of the area is presented herein. The presented synthetic turf border system conforms to the shape of a given area by either providing pre-shaped angular and non-angular components, or by allowing individual elements, namely turf border bases, to rotate through degrees of arc in relationship to each other as necessary to fit the area. Synthetic turf is attached to the border bases then cut before final securement to the system.

  • Publication number: 20130313499
    Abstract: A multi-length barrier panel for use in a play area comprises a front panel, a rear panel, and extendable panels. The multi-length barrier panel further comprises attachment collars and adapter brackets for attaching the multi-length barrier panel to play area equipment. Recesses in the front and rear panel allow for the attachment collars and adapter brackets to fit within the front and rear panels when the multi-length barrier panel is in a retracted configuration. The extendable panels can be extended or retracted as needed to fit between the play area equipment.

  • Publication number: 20100083344
    Abstract: The invention relates to the field of audio encoding. In particular, it relates to the transcoding of audio metadata between different audio coding schemes. It describes a method and a system for transcoding audio gain metadata related to dynamic range control from first gain metadata of a first audio coding scheme to second gain metadata of a second audio coding scheme, wherein the first and second audio coding schemes use coding blocks and wherein each coding block has at least one associated gain value. The method and the system select a gain value of the second gain metadata based on the gain values of the first gain metadata such that within a time interval around the time instance associated with the gain value of the second gain metadata, the minimum gain value of the first gain metadata is selected.

  • Publication number: 20070282924
    Abstract: A device for checking a data set, wherein the data set has a plurality of partial sets and a partial control value per partial set includes a determiner for determining a control value and comparer. The determiner for determining a control value is formed so as to determine a common control value from the partial control values of the partial sets. The comparer is formed so as to compare the common control value to a comparison value provided to the comparer.
