  • Publication number: 20210081444
    Abstract: A method for automated routing of pictures taken on mobile electronic devices to a digital picture frame including a camera integrated with the frame, and a network connection module allowing the frame for direct contact and upload of photos from electronic devices or from photo collections of community members. The integrated camera is used to automatically determine an identity of a frame viewer and can capture gesture-based feedback. The displayed photos are automatically shown and/or changed according to the detected viewers. The photos can be filtered and cropped at the receiver side. Clustering photos by content is used to improve display and to respond to photo viewer desires.

  • Publication number: 20210048965
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for displaying digital photos on a digital display with a network connection module. The method includes identifying two different photos in a digital photo collection that include a matching photo content, and displaying the two different photos simultaneously in a split screen on the digital display. The two different photos can be matched from related photo clusters. An integrated camera can be used to automatically determine an identity of a frame viewer to determine photos to display, and can capture gesture-based feedback. The photos can be filtered and cropped at the receiver side.

  • Publication number: 20040072542
    Abstract: Integrated RF components in the radio frequency (RF) front end of a communication device. The RF front end includes an antenna function for converting between radiated and electronic signals, includes a filter function for limiting signals within operating frequency bands, an amplifier function for boosting signal power and a mixer function for shifting frequencies between RF and lower frequencies. The receive antenna function is separate from the transmit antenna function where two different integrated filters/antennas (filtennas) are employed, a filtenna for the receive path and a filtenna for the transmit path.
