  • Patent number: 10491911
    Abstract: Approaches for transcoding on-the-fly (TOTF). A digital video is encoded to produce a set of encoding decisions. A video quality profile is created that describes the set of encoding decisions. Upon determining that the video quality profile is associated with a compressed digital video bit stream, a final rate of compression is determined, frame by frame, for the compressed digital video bit stream using the video quality profile. The final rate of compression may be determined either internal or external to an encoder/transcoder. The video quality profile may be created by reviewing a plurality of encoding decisions to determine which encoding decisions merit inclusion based on a variety of criteria.

  • Publication number: 20160316216
    Abstract: Approaches for encoding/transcoding of digital video based on subjective video quality preferences or display device characteristics or capabilities. A set of esthetic digital video preferences are received from a user via a user interface. The user may be associated with a supplier or provider of digital video or may be a viewer of the digital video. A video quality profile that describes the set of esthetic digital video preferences or the characteristics or capabilities of a display device is created and stored. Upon determining that a video quality profile is associated with a compressed digital video bit stream, a final rate of compression for the compressed digital video bit stream is determined using one or more video quality profiles. In this way, a user's subjective video quality preferences or the characteristics or capabilities of a display device can be considered in encoding/transcoding digital video.

  • Patent number: 8401006
    Abstract: Embodiments of a method and system for enforcing a traffic policy at a Policy Enforcement Point (PEP) that controls the flow of traffic in a wireless communications network are described. In one embodiment, a method involves learning the topology of the wireless communications network, defining a virtual PEP (VPEP) within the topology of the wireless communications network, the VPEP comprising a location component that is remote from the PEP, associating a traffic policy with the VPEP, associating a traffic flow with the VPEP if the traffic flow has a characteristic that corresponds to the location component of the VPEP, and enforcing, at the PEP, the traffic policy that is associated with the VPEP against the traffic flow.

  • Publication number: 20110314071
    Abstract: Data access is controlled using metadata in the data being stored. As consistent with various example embodiments, data is stored on behalf of one or more of a multitude of disparate users and/or applications using the data, based upon metadata in the data itself and storage rules for the metadata. In one implementation, a rules-based storage and access system retrieves storage rules based upon metadata in received data, and executes the storage rules to select a file system in which to store the received data, from a plurality of file systems having different data retrieval characteristics such as speed, security and quality.

  • Patent number: 7254224
    Abstract: A system and method of facilitating server-based call processing services and call control may employ service triggers transported via a standard protocol. A service trigger may enable a service provider to modify or otherwise to customize the behavior of a call processing server arrangement; some or all of the functionality of the call processing server arrangement may be controlled or influenced in accordance with parameters set by the service provider and defined by the service trigger. A service trigger may enable a full range of customization options, ranging from simple modifications to complete service creation and implementation, interrupting and altering call control logic at any point during call control operations.
