  • Patent number: 11384912
    Abstract: A thin aspect lighting system and method are shown. The system and method include at least one module having a reflector that is generally elliptical in one cross-section and generally parabolic in another cross-section. Each module is adapted to generate at least one of a flat beam pattern, a high beam pattern or a low beam pattern, such as a low beam pattern with a kink or elbow. Also shown is a headlamp assembly having a plurality of modules that generate the same or a different light beam pattern. Manipulation and variation of facets or positions of various components, such as at least one light source provides improved characteristics in one or more of the light beam patterns.

  • Publication number: 20220164401
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for dynamically creating hyperlinks associated with relevant multimedia content in a computer network. A hyperlink generation module receives an electronic text file from a server. The module searches the text file to identify keywords present in the file. Once the keywords have been identified, a database is queried to identify multimedia content that is related to the keywords. Generally, multimedia content is associated with metadata to enable efficient searching of the multimedia content. Typically, the multimedia content is contextually relevant to both the identified keywords and text file. One or more hyperlinks corresponding to the keywords are then generated and inserted into the text file. The hyperlinks provide pointers to the identified multimedia content. After insertion into the text file, the hyperlinks may be clicked by a user or viewer of the file to retrieve and display the identified multimedia content.

  • Publication number: 20220043830
    Abstract: A distributed data store may maintain versioned hierarchical data structures. Different versions of a hierarchical data structure may be maintained consistent with a transaction log for the hierarchical data structure. When access requests directed to the hierarchical data structure are received, a version of the hierarchical data structure may be identified for processing an access request. For access requests with snapshot isolation, the identified version alone may be sufficient to consistently process the access request. For access requests with higher isolation requirements, such as serializable isolation, transactions based on the access request may be submitted to the transaction log so that access requests resulting in committed transactions may be allowed, whereas access requests resulting in conflicting transactions may be denied.

  • Publication number: 20220026052
    Abstract: A lighting fixture appears as a skylight and is referred to as a skylight fixture. First and second light engines of the fixture provide different color points, peak light intensity angles, far-field light distribution characteristics, and/or circadian stimulus values. A skylight fixture may include a sky-resembling assembly and a plurality of sun-resembling assemblies, with dedicated optical assemblies and/or light sources. A lighting fixture may include multiple waveguides that different extraction feature patterns and/or may be sequentially arranged.

  • Patent number: 11156760
    Abstract: According to an aspect of the present disclosure, a luminaire comprises a plurality of waveguides, a light source arranged to direct light into the plurality of waveguides, and a plurality of extraction feature patterns. The luminaire contemplated by the present disclosure is arranged with the plurality of waveguides are aligned such that an extraction feature pattern extracts light out of a first waveguide of the plurality of waveguides and a second extraction feature pattern extracts light out of a second waveguide of the plurality of waveguides. Further, in accordance with this aspect, the light extracted out of the first waveguide is directed through the second waveguide to develop an appearance of depth.

  • Publication number: 20190303402
    Abstract: A system and method for navigating digital media assets including a navigation system configured to receive a search query in response to a user input and process the search query by applying the search query to a search index of digital media asset conventional and time-based metadata and determining search results of titles of and start points in time within digital media assets that satisfy the search query. The navigation system may then display the search results to the user through the user interface. The search results may be displayed in a hierarchical format, wherein the title of the digital media asset is displayed and upon selecting the title of the digital media asset, the start points in time within that digital media asset are displayed or played as a video to the user through the user interface.

  • Patent number: 9852344
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for classifying videos based on video content. For a given video file including a plurality of frames, a subset of frames is extracted for processing. Frames that are too dark, blurry, or otherwise poor classification candidates are discarded from the subset. Generally, material classification scores that describe type of material content likely included in each frame are calculated for the remaining frames in the subset. The material classification scores are used to generate material arrangement vectors that represent the spatial arrangement of material content in each frame. The material arrangement vectors are subsequently classified to generate a scene classification score vector for each frame. The scene classification results are averaged (or otherwise processed) across all frames in the subset to associate the video file with one or more predefined scene categories related to overall types of scene content of the video file.

  • Publication number: 20170318344
    Abstract: Methods and system for presenting a user with multimedia digital content available to and having a high correlation of potential viewing interest to the user, comprises determining which multimedia assets are available to the user; ranking the available multimedia assets as a correlation between the user's interests and demographic information and metadata associated with each multimedia asset. Higher ranking and relevance of each respective multimedia asset is indicative of a higher likelihood of viewing interest to the user. The ranked and available multimedia assets are presented to the user on an interactive display screen, where the higher ranked multimedia assets are featured more prominently to the user on the interactive display screen. The user is then able to take further action with respect to each presented multimedia asset.
