  • Patent number: 10269049
    Abstract: The present invention relates to determining and presenting, in conjunction with video assistant selection, personalized, remote video assistant-specific availability information for remote video assistants that a user has transacted/interacted with in the past. Once a user logs in or otherwise presents identifying credentials, the system or methodology accesses the user's recent remote video assistant session data (i.e., which video assistants the user previously transacted with) and determines the availability of the previously contacted video assistants. In response, the invention presents a listing of the video assistants which the user previously interacted with along with availability information for each remote video assistant. In specific embodiments, the availability information includes whether the remote is currently available for video sessions and, if so, the approximate wait time for the video assistant. The approximate wait time may be dynamically determined and displayed.

  • Patent number: 10152229
    Abstract: Systems and methods for secure transaction interfaces. In one implementation, a processing device receives, within a user input interface and while a user communication agent is presented at a display interface of a device, a selection of a transaction initiation control, presents, in response to the selection of the transaction initiation control and via the user input interface, a transaction execution control, presents, in response to a selection of the transaction execution control, identifier(s) via an identifier selection control, receives a selection of the identifier(s), transitions, in response to the selection of the identifier(s), the user input interface into a numeric input interface, receives a numeric input via the numeric input interface, activates a transaction confirmation control within the user input interface, and executes, in response to a selection of the transaction confirmation control, a secure transaction with respect to the selected identifier(s) and the numeric input.

  • Patent number: 10021146
    Abstract: The present invention provides an over-the-top intermediary application for delivering video assistance services. The invention brokers and coordinates all messaging between user and video assistant multimedia applications/platforms, as well as backend resource allocation infrastructure services. By encapsulating different protocol messages from disparate multimedia clients/vendors and backend infrastructure services into a common standard-based messaging protocol, the present invention is able to provide video assistance services regardless of which multimedia client is implemented by the user or video assistant and is able to readily implement new, emerging multimedia clients and backed infrastructure services in a plugin-like fashion.

  • Patent number: 9621846
    Abstract: The present invention relates to capturing and presenting, in conjunction with video assistant selection, personalized, user-specific performance ratings for video assistants that the user has transacted/interacted with in the past. Once a user logs in or otherwise presents identifying credentials, the system or methodology accesses the user's recent remote video assistant session data (i.e., which video assistants the user previously transacted with and at least one corresponding user-specific performance rating) and presents a listing of the video assistants which the user previously interacted with along with at least one user-specific performance rating for each remote video assistant.

  • Publication number: 20170024679
    Abstract: The present invention relates to creating personalized user selection of remote video assistants based on the user's recent remote video assistant history. In this regard, once a user logs in to a remote video assistant/assistance system, the invention accesses the user's recent remote video assistant session data (i.e., which video assistants the user previously transacted with) and presents a listing of the video assistants which the user previously interacted with. In specific embodiments, as a means of insuring that the user recognizes the video assistant, an image or video clip is presented along with the listing of previously used to remote video assistants.

  • Patent number: 9141864
    Abstract: The present invention provides techniques for directing the gaze of a subject whose image is captured by a camera, including the direction in which the subject looks, or the distance between the subject and the camera, in such a way that a visually appealing image can be captured by the camera, where a media professional (e.g., an interviewer or a director) or other person knowledgeable in media best practices is non co-located with the subject. The techniques enable the media professional to provide visual hints both manually and automatically to the remotely located subject.

  • Patent number: 9055312
    Abstract: The present invention provides techniques for digital video distribution that provides for joint video content watching amongst a group of watchers using multiple mini browsing windows (MBWs), such that the watchers can simultaneously interact with each other in a video conferencing-like setting (i.e., seeing selected watchers' videos in MBWs and hearing their voices) while they view together specific video content in a synchronized way. The MBWs can be displayed as overlays on the main video window being watched on full screen.

  • Patent number: 8429687
    Abstract: Techniques for transmission and preparation for display of real-time audio-visual content of a plurality of TV programs over electronic communications network channels and display of the audio-visual signals as a part of a TV Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) are disclosed herein. In particular, the use of video coded using a layered codec, and stored in a layered format, allows a properly configured system to present to an end user a live preview of multiple TV channels, along with EPG information (e.g., the channel, time, title and genre of video content, a list of programs scheduled in the future, as well as the ability to, for example, set parental controls, order pay-per-view programs, to search for programs based on theme or category, and to set recordings for the future when combined with a recording system), on his/her TV screen, without taking significantly more resources (e.g., in terms of bandwidth, system complexity) than the traditional digital TV transmission.

  • Patent number: 8341672
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method, apparatus, system, and computer readable media containing instructions for preparing and displaying a plurality of audio-visual signals in a digital video distribution system (e.g., IPTV), which enables fast channel switching between channels. The system includes a server which sends a plurality of audio-visual signals coded in a base layer and enhancement layer format to an endpoint. The endpoint receives and decodes the base layer of a first channel, at least one second base layer of a second channel, and at least one enhancement layer of the first channel, and displays them on a video display.

  • Publication number: 20120177130
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques for a system and protocol that provides for composition of a video scene that embeds one or more video sequences into a background image. The protocol enables a video stream presentation system (e.g., IPTV) to automate the embedding by one or more decoders of video sequence content and non-background information, for example, stock tickers, close caption, or date/time information, into a background.
