  • Patent number: 10317787
    Abstract: A display screen includes a filter layer, a fluorescent layer having parallel fluorescent stripes, and an attachment layer between an excitation side of the fluorescent layer and a first side of the filter layer to attach the excitation side of fluorescent layer to the filter layer while providing vertical separation therebetween. The attachment layer includes attachment regions that are separated from each other by lateral spacings such that excitation-side air gaps are formed between areas of the fluorescent layer and the filter layer that correspond to the lateral spacings. During display operation, excitation light received on a second side of the filter layer propagates through to the first side of the filter layer, and at least a portion of the excitation light that propagates from the second side of the filter layer travels through the excitation-side air gaps to excite the fluorescent stripes.

  • Publication number: 20190138573
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present disclosure is directed to a method of editing a shared presentation over a network, the method including a network data server sending a first display for displaying and editing first presentation data, and sending a second display for displaying and editing second presentation data. The network data server updates the second display by adding a media object following receipt of a first message by the data server indicating that the media object was added to the first presentation data via the first display, the media object including video data or animated graphics data. Further, the network data server updates the first display by modifying playback behavior data of the media object following receipt of a second message by the data server indicating that the playback behavior data was specified for the media object via the second display.

  • Patent number: 9600264
    Abstract: A migration set list generator specifies a physical topology of a deployed software solution, wherein the software solution comprises software components and data associated with the software components, integrated into a single entity. The migration set list generator specifies at least one solution change to the deployed software solution to meet at least one business requirement and specifies at least one migration strategy for migrating the deployed software solution. The migration set list generator generates migration tasks for making the at least one solution change to the deployed software solution specified in the physical topology based on the at least one migration strategy and generates a recommended physical topology yielded for the software solution if the physical topology is updated according to the migration tasks.

  • Patent number: 8732912
    Abstract: A strap having increased column stiffness includes a leading edge and a trailing edge forming a length of the strap, a first outer edge and second outer edge defining a width of the strap, and a first side and a second side defining a thickness of the strap. A crush region is formed in the first or second side, between and generally parallel to the first and second outer edges. The crush region is defined by a thickness that is less than the thickness of the strap adjacent to the crush region. The crush region forms a line along which a bend may be formed in the strap. The bend increases the column stiffness of the strap at least about 67 percent over that of a comparable flat strap. The bend defines an acute angle and an obtuse angle in the strap as viewed in cross-section.

  • Patent number: 8419401
    Abstract: A nozzle head for dispensing sealant within a gap is provided. The nozzle head includes, but is not limited to, a body section and a port connected with the body section. The body section forms a primary channel through which sealant is dispensed. The primary channel forms an entrance through which sealant enters the body section and an exit through which sealant is dispensed from the nozzle. The port is connected with the body section and surrounds the exit. The port forms a chamber having a tip portion opposed to a rear opening. The chamber forms an angled path from the tip portion to the rear opening to trap and guide excess sealant within the chamber to the rear opening.
