  • Patent number: 9384587
    Abstract: A method may include receiving a number of video feeds for a live event from video capture devices located at an event venue. A three-dimensional model of the event may be generated based on received video feeds. A request to view a virtual event corresponding to the live event may be received from a user device. The 3D model may be forwarded to the user device. A virtual representation of the event may be output based on the 3D model. A request may be received to manipulate a view within the virtual representation. A modified virtual representation of the event may be output based on the request.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9241194
    Abstract: In a content processing device, a set of media channels to be provided in a graphical user interface is identified. Each channel in a subset of the channels is assigned to a cell that is included in a set of cells in the graphical user interface. The graphical user interface is provided to a display. Upon a predetermined indication, at least some of the subset of the channels are rotated through at least a subset of the cells, whereby the display shows each of the cells in the subset of cells to be including a channel other than a channel that was included in the cell before the rotating was performed.

  • Patent number: 9008314
    Abstract: A system includes a sending access point and a receiving access point. The sending access point divides a data stream into sets of packets, encrypts a first set of packets using a first encryption protocol, encrypts a second set of packets using a second encryption protocol, where the second encryption protocol is different from the first encryption protocol, transmits, using a first channel over a wireless network, the first set of packets, and transmits, using a second channel over the wireless network, the second set of packets. The receiving access point receives the first set of packets and the second set of packets, decrypts the first set of packets using the first encryption protocol, and decrypts the second set of packets using the second encryption protocol.

  • Patent number: 8335132
    Abstract: A system and method for determining local time at an electronic device is disclosed. The system may include an input configured to receive home information for an electronic device. The system may also include a calibration module configured to calibrate the electronic device to a home time zone corresponding to the home information. Calibrating the electronic device may include determining a threshold time value for messages to be transmitted to and received from a home location associated with the home information and generating a time zone database based on the home time zone, and labeling each time zone in the time zone database with a label based on an offset in time from the home time zone. A time value corresponding to time of message transmission to and from the home location may also be determined.
