  • Patent number: 7606183
    Abstract: Devices, softwares and methods send a warning signal when a periodic signal is present in the audio content of a VoIP connection. In response to the warning signal, an acoustic echo canceller of an IP telephone discontinues its adapting process. A signaling network switch detects when a periodic signal is present in the audio content, and issues a warning signal. A signaling call manager device, when it transmits a tone that has periodicity, it also transmits a warning signal.

  • Publication number: 20070263824
    Abstract: A conferencing system includes a mixer operable to process audio and video packets received from a plurality of endpoint devices, and to transmit a processed audio/video stream back to the endpoint devices. A server connects with the mixer and the endpoint devices. The server is operable to send a first transmission to a first endpoint device that causes the first endpoint device to stop transmitting video packets to the mixer. The server is further operable to send a second transmission to a second endpoint device that causes the second endpoint to start transmitting video packets to the mixer. It is emphasized that this abstract is provided to comply with the rules requiring an abstract that will allow a searcher or other reader to quickly ascertain the subject matter of the technical disclosure. It is submitted with the understanding that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims. 37 CFR 1.72(b).

  • Patent number: 7277943
    Abstract: Devices, software and methods are provided for allocating different amounts of memory of a network communication device as jitter buffer for different channels, such as VoIP connections. The channels are classified according to regions of their endpoints in the network. Jitter statistics are tracked for connections with endpoints in each region. The statistics are used to determine how much memory to allocate as a jitter buffer for each channel in a subsequent connection, depending on the region of the endpoint.

  • Patent number: 7251241
    Abstract: Source devices, softwares and methods are provided for predicting at a transmitting source how well a specific encoded frame, relative to other frames in a stream, would be reconstructed if it were not available for eventual playout at a receiving destination. If poorly, then the specific encoded frame is packetized and transmitted advantageously with respect to other packets in a stream. The transmitted stream will have higher jitter. Predicting is performed at the source by synthesizing a replicated frame, which emulates how the specific frame would be reconstructed at the destination. Then the replicated frame is compared with the decoded specific frame. The eventual playout will have a higher fidelity to the original, since reconstructed from more critical frames.

  • Publication number: 20070064901
    Abstract: According to an embodiment of the present invention, an apparatus for performing video conferencing is provided that includes an I-frame injector element operable to intercept I-frame requests from one or more end points and to attempt to service the I-frame requests such that at least a portion of the requests are prevented from propagating back to an originating sender. In more specific embodiments, when a receiver endpoint sends a fast video update (FVU) request upstream, it is intercepted by the I-frame injector element and rather than passing the FVU request to the sender the I-frame injector element replaces a next P-frame from the sender with an I-frame, whereby the I-frame is constructed so that when decoded, it matches the P-frame that it replaced. In still more detailed embodiments, the I-frame injector element operates in one of three modes that are associated with bandwidth parameters.

  • Publication number: 20060177020
    Abstract: A method and system for call answer while connected to voice mail includes generating real-time packets for transmission of a message toward a voice mail system. Generation of the real-time packets is interrupted upon a call answer by a party generating the message. Generation of the real-time packets for transmission of the message toward the voice mail system is resumed after a delay associated with the call answer. An indication is provided to the voice mail system that the real-time packets generated subsequent to the delay follow the real-time packets generated prior to the delay in the message by a time amount less than the delay.

    Abstract: A method for executing a video conference is provided that includes receiving one or more audio streams associated with a video conference from one or more end points and determining an active speaker associated with one of the end points. Audio information associated with the active speaker may be received at one or more media switches. One or more video streams may be suppressed except for a selected video stream associated with the active speaker, the selected video stream propagating to one or more of the media switches during the video conference. The selected video stream may be replicated such that it may be communicated to one or more of the end points associated with a selected one of the media switches.
