  • Patent number: 10356591
    Abstract: Technology for securely processing emergency response. The technology includes combining video data from multiple video sources relating to an emergency response scenario. The video data is combined into a multi-video feed that utilizes a particular amount of bandwidth when delivered. From a display of a multi-video feed, a video source may be selected. A single-video feed is then delivered for the selected video source and the single video feed is utilized substantially the same bandwidth and the multi-video feed. Dynamic geofences may also be generated. The dynamic geofence is based on an object that is capable of moving. When the object moves, the dynamic geofence also moves such that the boundaries of the dynamic geofence are fixed relative to the object, even as the object moves. Group members may be associated with the dynamic geofence such that they are alerted when a group member crosses the dynamic geofence boundary.

  • Patent number: 4999771
    Abstract: Data messages are transmitted between host data processors and a communications processor. Data messages from a communications processor are transformed for the host processor to which the message is assigned. Data messages from a host processor are transformed for the communications processor. Protocol is established between (a) untransformed data messages from the communications processor and transformed data messages for the communications processor, and (b) untransformed data messages from each host processor and transformed data messages for each host processor. A device interface connects a plurality of host processors to a plurality of buses, each bus being connected to one communications processor. The device interface handles the protocol, transformation and control function in parallel so that messages between a given host processor and terminal connected to a communications processor are processed through a device interface.

  • Patent number: 4514692
    Abstract: Eddy current type metal detector for locating and distinguishing between metal objects of different types in the ground or other surroundings. Differentiation is employed to eliminate signals from the ground soil or other material in which the object is located, and objects of a particular type are detected from the phases of signals which they produce.

  • Patent number: 4117266
    Abstract: A connection across telephone lines includes a resistor having a shunted capacitor circuit holding a normally closed relay open and permitting it to close on closing the telephone circuit, by lifting the handset, to activate a recorder. Replacing the handset opens the circuit shutting off the recorder. A current limiting resistance in the recorder switch circuit prevents damage to the relay while the capacitor provides high current for activating the the relay solenoid. A bridge circuit eliminates polarity of the magnetically biased relay.

  • Patent number: 4115658
    Abstract: A two-way telephone amplifier uses a microphone-speaker switching system with the microphone normally on. Incoming or off-line voice signal causes switching to open the transmit line and close the receive line. Features of the invention include a bridge circuit with transmit and receive lines all connected to one side of the secondary of a telephone line coupling transformer.
