  • Patent number: 10387626
    Abstract: Intelligent content delivery enables content to be delivered to different devices in formats appropriate for those devices based on the capabilities of those devices. A user might access the same piece of content on two different devices, and can automatically receive a higher quality format on a device capable of playing that higher quality format. The user can purchase rights to content in any format, such that as new formats emerge or the user upgrades to devices with enhanced capabilities, the user can receive the improved formats automatically without having to repurchase the content. Further, the user can pause and resume content between devices even when those devices utilize different formats, and can access content on devices not otherwise associated with the user, receiving content in formats that are appropriate for those unknown devices even if the user has not previously accessed content in those formats.

  • Publication number: 20180341512
    Abstract: External events are correlated with patterns of characteristics in virtual assets. Upon detection of a pattern in a different asset that matches a pattern corresponding to an event, that detection is treated as a trigger event, with resulting responsive action(s) and other process operations. Security threats are managed in a similar manner, with first security threats being added to a collection of security threats. When a virtual asset detects a change in operating characteristics, a request is provided for the collection of current security threats, and the collection of security threats is provided responsive to the request.
