  • Patent number: 10210845
    Abstract: Briefly, methods and apparatus provide image content to, and display image content on, displays with a variable refresh rate that reduce frame delays and avoid display image flickering problems. In one example, the methods and apparatus are operative to vary a display's refresh rate by varying a current frame's vertical blanking period by re-providing the current frame for display prior to providing a new frame for display. In this fashion, the displaying of a new frame may be advanced by assuring that a new frame can be provided for display as soon as it has been rendered and available for display. In addition, by re-providing the current frame for display prior to providing a new frame for display, new frames may be provided for display at rates within a safe rate range such that display image flickering issues are avoided or reduced.

  • Patent number: 9717063
    Abstract: A method, system and computer-usable medium are provide for managing the Open Channel for IMS command correctly the UICC to have knowledge about the specific status codes the ME received from IMS. This knowledge allows the UICC to make a smarter decision on what it attempts to do to access IMS. Accordingly, the UICC is provided with detailed information about the status codes from the IMS service to allow the UICC to make an informed decision. If the UICC does not have such knowledge, it is possible that the UICC will send potentially unwanted commands to the ME to establish access to IMS.

  • Patent number: 9688933
    Abstract: The charcoal-foam heating material is formed by combining a charcoal mixture with an aqueous surfactant and water to create a semi-homogenous charcoal-foam slurry. The slurry is poured into shaping molds so that the slurry dries into the charcoal-foam heating material. In the preferred embodiment, a concrete surfactant is used during the mixing process and the charcoal-foam slurry is formed into briquettes and used as a cooking fuel.

  • Publication number: 20170091779
    Abstract: Technologies for enabling real-time support for requests (e.g., onboarding requests, support requests, managing requests, troubleshooting requests, etc.) based at least in part on contextual data are described. The technologies described can receive a request associated with a product and/or a service and determine contextual data associated with the request. The contextual data can define a status of an application associated with the product and/or the service. Additionally, the technologies described can include determining support providers for supporting the request based partly on the contextual data and generating task data associated with the request. The task data can include the contextual data.

  • Publication number: 20160134865
    Abstract: An apparatus and methods for controlling power consumption in video encoding obtain, before motion estimation is performed on an image frame to be encoded, information regarding an amount of the image frame to be encoded that is static with respect to a previously encoded image frame. The apparatus and methods adjust power consumption of the video encoder based on the obtained information regarding the amount of the image frame to be encoded that is static.

  • Patent number: 9279091
    Abstract: A charcoal heating material, such as charcoal briquettes, includes a porous structure that facilitates the flow of oxygen about the charcoal, and thereby, enables the briquettes to ignite easily and quickly. In particular the lightweighted charcoal briquettes have a density from about 0.50 grams per cubic centimeter to about 0.80 grams per cubic centimeter. Methods of forming charcoal heating materials include mixing a rheology modifying agent and a moisture phase with a charcoal mixture to facilitate absorption of additional water into the solid matrix, providing increased porosity and lightweighting of the finished briquette after drying.

  • Patent number: 9077489
    Abstract: A tone map includes physical layer transmission properties for a multi-carrier communications channel. The physical layer transmission properties indicate modulation mode and transmission power to be used on one or more frequencies (i.e. “tones”). The transmission power may be reduced on a first frequency having a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) so that performance will improve for a second frequency having a lower SNR. Transmission power may be reduced on a first frequency having an unusably low SNR so that performance will improve on a second frequency. A tone map message is used to efficiently communicate modulation and transmission power adjustments on a per-carrier basis.
