  • Patent number: 11346183
    Abstract: An actuator assembly of a downhole tool may include a high pressure chamber and a low pressure chamber. A pressure applied from the surface to the tool may enter both chambers. The low pressure chamber may include an inlet that restricts the flow of pressure and prevents the pressure within the low pressure chamber from increasing quickly. The high pressure chamber may also include an inlet that restricts the flow of pressure to prevent the pressure within the high pressure chamber from increasing quickly. The inlet of the high pressure chamber may also include a check valve that prevents pressure from bleeding off from the high pressure chamber through the check valve. The pressure within the high pressure chamber may actuate a piston to actuate the tool in response to the pressure applied from the surface falling within a predetermined pressure and time range.

  • Publication number: 20220165309
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, are provided, for generating video anchors for a video. In one aspect, a method includes obtaining key moment identifiers for a video, where each key moment identifier includes a time index value specifying a playback time in the video, and is indicative subject matter of the video that has been determined to meet one or more interest criteria that define salient topics within the video. For each key moment identifier, a video anchor is generated, where each video anchor indicates a playback time for the video, and may include an image of a frame that occurs near the playback time. Upon a selection of the video anchor by the user, an instruction in the video anchor causes a video player to begin playback of the video at the playback time specified by the video anchor.

  • Patent number: 11325031
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for controlling the rendering of a video game instance includes obtaining game state information and player inputs from a plurality of client devices participating in a video game session. Based on the obtained game state information, a client device is identified as being likely to render a video game instance with a quality that is less than a threshold quality. A cloud game client is allocated to the identified client device. The player inputs associated with the identified client device and the obtained game state information are provided to the cloud game client, which renders the video game instance for the identified client device. The video game instance rendered at the cloud device is then transmitted to the identified client device for display at an associated display.
