  • Patent number: 11153604
    Abstract: A method of displaying images forming part of a digital reality stream, the method including, for each image to be displayed in one or more encoder processing devices, generating compressed image data by differentially compressing image data indicative of the image in accordance with system operation and the content of the digital reality stream so that different parts of the image are compressed using a different degree of compression, wirelessly transmitting the compressed image data to a display device using a wireless communications link, and, in one or more decoder processing devices associated with the display device, differentially decompressing the compressed image data to thereby generate image data indicative of the image to be displayed.

  • Patent number: 11151749
    Abstract: A method of compressing image data from one or more images forming part of the digital reality content, the method including obtaining pixel data from the image data, the pixel data representing an array of pixels within the one or more images; determining a position of the array of pixels within the one or more images relative to a defined position, the defined position being at least partially indicative of a point of gaze of the user, and compressing the pixel data at least partially in accordance to the determined position so that a degree of compression depends on the determined position of the array of pixels.

  • Publication number: 20210291967
    Abstract: A shimmy damper for centering a landing gear includes a cap and a housing. The shimmy damper further includes a damper shaft extending from the cap to the housing. The shimmy damper further includes a plurality of magnets configured to exert an opposing force on the cap and the housing via the damper shaft, providing a centering mechanism of the damper shaft within the housing. This centering action in turn provides for the centering of the landing gear during flight.

  • Patent number: 10516705
    Abstract: Techniques for device control for a communication session are described. According to various embodiments, a claim process is performed that establishes a control relationship between a controller and a remote device. The controller causes the remote device to initiate a communication session with a different device using a designated identity.
