  • Publication number: 20190253767
    Abstract: A system for remotely controlling client recording and storage behavior schedules the recording, storing, and deleting of multimedia content on a client system storage device. The viewer may request that certain content be captured. Capture requests also allow the service to determine content to be recorded by the client system in the same manner that a viewer requests that certain content are recorded but are more powerful than what a viewer can request. Recording requests for a capture request can preempt viewer requests or be entered at the same or lower priority as a viewer request. Capture requests can adjust all aspects of a recording request and affect the capture request itself. Client system operational functionality are also manipulated by the service using capture requests.

  • Publication number: 20190135691
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention described herein relate to fiberglass materials, composite glass materials, methods of making fiberglass materials and composite glass materials, and different applications of fiberglass materials and composite glass materials. The fiberglass materials can include a bimodal particle size distribution. The fiberglass materials can include an average aspect ratio of greater than about 2 to 1. Also described herein are composite glass materials including a first glass material and a second material. The second material can include at least one of post-consumer glass waste, fly ash, metakaolin, and slag. Also described herein are methods of making a composite glass material including providing a first glass material to a mixer; providing a second material to the mixer; and co-milling the first glass material and a second material to form a composite glass material.
