  • Patent number: 10800608
    Abstract: With respect to a transfer facility configured to optimize package transfers therethrough, a container housing packages may be delivered to a first floor of the transfer facility. The packages may be transported to consolidation stations based on destinations associated therewith. In some examples, the packages may be bound for a single destination and thus transported to a single consolidation station. In some examples, the packages may be bound for multiple destinations and thus transported to a second floor of the transfer facility for sortation. A destination and mode of transportation associated with the package may be determined at an induction station on the second floor, as well as a consolidation station associated therewith. A drive unit may insert the package into a chute for transit down a slide to the consolidation station, where it may be placed into another container for shipment to the destination via the mode of transportation.

  • Publication number: 20180322194
    Abstract: A media content search and retrieval identifies a plurality of available sources for media content such as songs and music videos, and renders the media content in conjunction with supporting and/or related information that complements and enhances the user experience. The media search implements a cross-source search engine and approach which navigates multiple content sources based on the same search label or title, and identifies the most preferable or beneficial source based on an overhead burden imposed by each of the sources. Found content is rendered by both streaming the audio and/or video content from the found source, and integrating with supporting information aggregated on an appurtenant media server. A local device app receives both the content stream and the supporting information cached or stored on the media server for efficient rendering of the enhanced media content.

  • Publication number: 20180322457
    Abstract: A collaboration database and server correlates project originators with collaborative responders based on a predetermined criteria of skills and background coupled with a corresponding profile of the responder that indicates possible agreement with the predetermined criteria. Communicative messaging is limited during consideration of the criteria, and full communication is permitted only after both the originator and responder have indicated sufficient skills, performance history and motivation for moving forward.

  • Publication number: 20180321775
    Abstract: A media player on a mobile device renders heterogeneous playlists having songs or other entries of different formats, and which correspond to different players. The unified heterogeneous media player identifies playlist entries and invokes a corresponding player through a graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI presents a single interface to the user, selects and invokes a player corresponding to the playlist entries, and remains under the control of the common GUI for providing a consistent user experience. A media server coupled to the mobile device transmits an identifier or title and a source of the media. The media server also stores and/or transmits related information for enhancing the user experience with news, lyrics and images based on the rendered entry. The unified media player invokes a messaging interface of the corresponding player for streaming the content based on the source, and also tenders the related information concurrently.

  • Publication number: 20180322901
    Abstract: A server and website for receiving uploads of music and other media for commercial distribution performs a copyright check for ensuring that an uploaded music track is not in potential conflict with known rights of other entities. A database of audio fingerprints allows comparison of audio data against copyrighted tracks, and a metadata comparison employs fuzzy text matching and metadata comparisons to identify data attributes suggesting a similarity to known copyrighted material. Industry standard metadata, such as ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) identifiers, ID3 tags, and other relevant data such as titles and authorship, considering alternate and similar spellings as well. A comprehensive copyright check and evaluation ensures that possibly infringing media is filtered out and a distribution entity incurs little risk in accepting media uploaded via the media upload website.

  • Publication number: 20080179257
    Abstract: There is provided a process for the thermal treatment of waste materials, particularly pharmaceutical waste materials. The process comprises placing the waste material into a chamber and increasing the temperature inside the chamber in three stages. At a first stage, water in the material is desorbed as water vapor. At a second stage, organic ingredients in the material are desorbed and decomposed producing condensable organic vapor and non-condensable synthesis gas. And at a third stage, polymer-based components of the material are depolymerized and decomposed producing condensable hydrocarbon vapor. The non-condensable synthesis gas produced can be used as heating source for the process.
