  • Publication number: 20220286467
    Abstract: A computer-implemented technique is described herein for defining and applying constraints that regulate a supervisee's interaction with applications. In one implementation, the technique provides a user interface presentation to a supervisor that lists a set of applications that run on plural application execution platforms. The user interface presentation also allows the supervisor to set platform-agnostic constraint information for any identified application. The platform-agnostic constraint information, once set for an application, constrains interaction by a supervisee with all versions of that same application. That is, the constraint information is said to be agnostic with respect to platform in the sense that it applies to a variety of application execution platforms that run the application. In one example, the platform-agnostic constraint information specifies a permitted amount of an activity that the supervisee is permitted to perform across all versions of an application.

  • Patent number: 9706123
    Abstract: Techniques to permit a digital image capture device to stabilize a video stream in real-time (during video capture operations) are presented. In general, techniques are disclosed for stabilizing video images using an overscan region and a look-ahead technique enabled by buffering a number of video input frames before generating a first stabilized video output frame. (Capturing a larger image than is displayed creates a buffer of pixels around the edge of an image; overscan is the term given to this buffer of pixels.) More particularly, techniques are disclosed for buffering an initial number of input frames so that a “current” frame can use motion data from both “past” and “future” frames to adjust the strength of a stabilization metric value so as to keep the current frame within its overscan. This look-ahead and look-behind capability permits a smoother stabilizing regime with fewer abrupt adjustments.

  • Patent number: 9635212
    Abstract: An image is compressed according to a compression ratio selected based on a compression metric. In one embodiment, the compression metric is based on image characteristics indicative of the amount of image noise in an image, such as gain and lux. Greater compression ratios are used for image having compression metrics indicating a higher degree of noise. Because an image with higher image noise levels already has a reduced visual quality, the impact of higher compression is less significant as compared to the impact of compression on images having low image noise. In an embodiment, an image is divided into a number of regions, for each of which a compression metric and corresponding compression ratio is determined, so that regions of the image having high image noise may be compressed more than regions having low image noise.

  • Publication number: 20150048189
    Abstract: A jaw crusher has a substantially fixed jaw and an opposed movable jaw. A pair of opposed side walls extend from either side of the jaws to define a crushing zone. Each side wall includes one or a plurality of side liners configured to protect the side walls. A security or capture projection extends from the side wall to one side and adjacent to each side liner and prevents the side liner from falling downward from the crushing zone in the event of dislodgement from its mounting position during use.
