  • Patent number: 7849116
    Abstract: A system and method for automated layout of collaboratively selected images within a compilation for printing, viewing, etc. The images may be drawn from any number of albums owned by various users, and have associated rankings reflecting the users' behavior regarding the images (e.g., viewing, printing, recommending). Some number of images is selected for the compilation (e.g., the highest ranked images) and the images are arranged into chapters that correspond to the albums in which they are located. Within each chapter, images are ordered by time and grouped into clusters of related images (e.g., close in time, same event, same subject). Page templates are used to determine how many images to place on a page, and may be designed or redesigned so that the prominence (e.g., size) of each image corresponds to its ranking. The chapters, pages and/or images may be augmented with titles or captions.

  • Publication number: 20100266155
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are provided for automatically dividing a collection of digital photographs into subject-specific sets. Before an event at which photographs are to be taken, information identifying some or all subjects is submitted to an automated facilitator. The facilitator generates slates comprising machine-scannable tags or codes, with each identified subject having a unique slate. At the event, for each subject a first photo is taken that includes the subject's slate; any number of photos is taken afterward. The photos are uploaded to the facilitator and scanned to identify the slates. Every photo that follows a slate is associated with the corresponding subject, until another slate is identified. Subjects are provided access codes with which to access the facilitator and view their photographs, purchase copies, order merchandise, etc. Access codes may be separate from the slates, or may be human-readable forms of the machine-scannable tag within the slates.

  • Patent number: 7600230
    Abstract: A system and method for managing security meta-data in a reverse proxy server. The reverse proxy caches data served by an origin server, and also stores security meta-data for authenticating a user and/or authorizing access to cached data. The security meta-data may include an ACL (Access Control List), access control token or descriptor, other access control information, user credentials, user privileges or roles, group membership, user aliases, etc. The reverse proxy may automatically receive access control information from the origin server when a request for data is forwarded to the origin server, or may explicitly request the information from the origin server or a security server. The reverse proxy receives and applies invalidation messages to invalidate stored security meta-data. Also, the reverse proxy acts in a stateful manner, with knowledge of the correlation between a given user and that user's session with the origin server.

  • Publication number: 20090158047
    Abstract: In a multi-tier data server system, data from the first tier is cached in a mid-tier cache of the middle tier. Access control information from the first tier for the data is also cached within the mid-tier cache. Caching the security information in the middle tier allows the middle tier to make access control decisions regarding requests for data made by clients in the outer tier.

  • Patent number: 7509404
    Abstract: A method of servicing a request for a document over a computer network includes independently caching portions of pages called blocks. Each block includes a reference to a data source and code that is adapted to access the data source and to format the data accessed from the data source. When a request for a page is received over a computer network, one or more of the plurality of blocks defined in the script of the requested document may be retrieved from a cache memory. Any block that is not found in the cache memory is dynamically generated and a copy thereof is stored in the cache memory. The requested page may then be assembled from the page blocks retrieved from the cache memory and/or the dynamically generated page blocks.

  • Patent number: 7437754
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a system that facilitates serving data from a cache server. The system operates upon receiving a request for the data at the cache server. The system first determines if the request requires access control, and also if the data is available in the cache. If the request requires access control and if the data is available in the cache, the system sends an authorization request to an origin server. Upon receiving a response from the origin server, the system determines if the response is an authorization. If so, the system sends the data to the requester.

  • Patent number: 7378832
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated systems and methods may relate to a wide bandwidth cable assembly that may include an active amplification stage to receive high frequency signals (e.g., 1 GHz or above) through a transmission line extending distally to a passive, high density signal probe stage. In an illustrative example, the probe stage may receive multiple analog or digital signals from a device under test (DUT). In some embodiments, the probe stage may include probe pins with integrated series resistance to control signal loading, and an equalizer to shape the signal path's frequency response. The amplification stage may provide a virtual ground reference for a termination impedance that may match the transmission line's impedance and may connect in series with a feedback impedance. In one example, a minimally invasive probe head may facilitate measurement of multiple channels of a high speed data bus with minimal signal distortion and/or attenuation.

  • Publication number: 20080080774
    Abstract: A system and method for sharing images and collaborating in the selection of images likely to be interest to a user. Images (e.g., photos) are shared within a community of users, by allowing user to access any unrestricted community image, recommend an image to another user, assemble compilations of any images the user can access, etc. Various metrics regarding user activity are tracked, such as how often an image was viewed, downloaded, recommended, included in a compilation, printed, edited, etc. The metric values may be normalized, and then weighted and combined to produce, for each image, a ranking or rating personalized to an individual user. Ratings of images for a user may be used to order them for electronic presentation, assemble a set of images for an electronic compilation (e.g., an online album) or physical compilation (e.g., a photo book, a yearbook) or for some other purpose.

  • Publication number: 20080059092
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for generating one or more transfer functions for converting waveforms. The method comprises the steps of determining a system description, representative of a circuit, comprising a plurality of system components, each system component comprising at least one component characteristic, the system description further comprising at least one measurement node and at least one output node, each of the at least one measurement nodes representative of a waveform digitizing location in the circuit. One or more transfer functions are determined for converting a waveform from one or more of the at least one measurement nodes to a waveform at one or more of the at least one output nodes. The generated transfer functions are then stored in a computer readable medium.

  • Patent number: 7299300
    Abstract: A system and method for dynamically selecting a level of compression to be applied to data to be served to a client. The level of compression may be selected on the basis of one or more factors, such as: the bandwidth of a communication link between the client and a server, the amount of data requested by the client, the workload of the server, whether the data are cacheable, etc. The server can readily obtain information such as the amount of requested data and the available CPU time on the server. To determine the bandwidth, the server may conduct a test transfer of a known amount of data to or from the client, or consult a database identifying known or expected bandwidths for specific client connections (or addresses). Based on the selected factor(s), the server dynamically selects a level of compression for the data.
