  • Patent number: 10375395
    Abstract: A video processing apparatus includes an external storage device, a hardware entropy engine, and a software execution engine. The hardware entropy engine performs entropy processing of a current picture, and further outputs count information to the external storage device during the entropy processing of the current picture. When loaded and executed by the software execution engine, a software program instructs the software execution engine to convert the count information into count table contents, and generate a count table in the external storage device according to at least the count table contents. The count table is referenced to apply a backward adaptation to a probability table that is selectively used by the hardware entropy engine to perform entropy processing of a next picture.

  • Publication number: 20190004905
    Abstract: Methods and systems for recovering a host image of a client machine to a recovery machine comprise comparing a profile of a client machine of a first type to be recovered to a profile of a recovery machine of a second type different from the first type, to which the client machine is to be recovered, by a first processing device. The first and second profiles each comprise at least one property of the first type of client machine and the second type of recovery machine, respectively. At least one property of a host image of the client machine is conformed to at least one corresponding property of the recovery machine. The conformed host image is provided to the recovery machine, via a network. The recovery machine is configured with at least one conformed property of the host image by a second processing device of the recovery machine.

  • Patent number: 6931404
    Abstract: A system for operating a workflow and a method applied to the system are proposed, so as to conduct an electronic workflow for an enterprise based on a server/client architecture in a intranet or internet environment. A terminal device of the system allows a user at the terminal device to submit a request for inquiring, browsing, issuing or reading a document, which is transmitted a network server for initiating a service server, so as to process the request and transmit the processed result through the network server to the user. The foregoing system and method can substitute for a conventional system in manual processing and is a powerful tool to fulfill the objectives for an enterprise in promoting the working efficiency and reducing the management cost.

  • Publication number: 20030126251
    Abstract: An automatic network monitor system is proposed, including a management center and a database system. The management center is at least provided with a host that is installed with management software, allowing the management center to be connected to at least an apparatus via a network. The management system is capable of automatically reading data from the apparatus periodically, and the read data are stored in the database system. By assessing the data with corresponding management rules defined in the management software, the management center is adapted to send a warming signal or to perform a maintenance control process for managing the apparatus in real time. The data stored in the database system can be utilized as reference for subsequent inquiry, statistics, analysis and maintenance.

  • Patent number: 6266990
    Abstract: A method for integrally forming and manufacturing an one-piece forged hollow crank of a bicycle includes the following steps: (a) forging and molding a leading edge of a crank; (b) extruding a crank body; (c) forging and possibly sealing a rear end of the crank body; and (d) cutting and piercing the rear end of the crank body so as to form a hollow crank of a bicycle. In such a manner, the hollow crank can be integrally forged and molded quickly by fewer manufacturing steps than that of the conventional method. In addition, the product surface of the hollow crank is finished to have a fine and pretty appearance so that it is not easy to produce a defective product, thereby enhancing the aesthetics and quality and saving the manufacturing cost of hollow crank. Further, better aluminum alloys can be used with this method than can be used with the prior art casting or welding methods.
