  • Publication number: 20220231396
    Abstract: Techniques for transceiving radio frequency (RF) signals through a window of a building are disclosed, the window having a first surface facing an interior of the building. An antenna arrangement is attached to a building structure adjacent the first surface and the antenna arrangement includes one or more radiating elements configured to transceive the RF signals through the window. In some embodiments, the building structure is mullion. In some embodiments a window surface includes an electrochromic and/or low emissivity coating that is excluded from a region proximate to the radiating elements.

  • Publication number: 20210390953
    Abstract: An immersive digital experience for video conferencing simulates common presence of a virtual participant in a local environment. Such simulation may include (i) using a transparent media display having a portion of its pixels projecting the virtual participant's body image while keeping at least a portion of the background transparent (e.g., to visible light), (ii) disposing sensor(s) (e.g., camera) behind the transparent media display at the gaze of the participant, and/or (iii) using added virtual overlays (e.g., of plants, memorabilia, and/or furniture) to the virtual image (e.g., that are consistent with the local environment), e.g., to provide a sense of depth ranging from the overlays to the virtual participant projection and to the background showing through the transparent media display.

  • Publication number: 20210325753
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, apparatuses, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media related to a display construct coupled to a structure (e.g., a vision window). The structure can be a supportive structure such as a fixture. The display construct is configured to facilitate media display and is at least partially transparent. The vision window may be a tintable window, e.g., a window in which its tint is electrically controllable (e.g., an electrochromic window). Various interactive capabilities with the display construct are disclosed (e.g., via a touch screen).

  • Patent number: 10153812
    Abstract: A method for wireless communication is described herein. The method may include advertising support by a wireless device for a first bandwidth mode and a second bandwidth mode, wherein the first bandwidth mode utilizes a single channel and the second bandwidth mode utilizes channel bonding between a plurality of channels. The method may also include switching a current bandwidth mode of the wireless device from one of the bandwidth modes to the other of the bandwidth modes and adjusting a number of multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) spatial streams supported by the wireless device in response to the switching.

  • Patent number: 10056949
    Abstract: In an aspect a transceiver is provided. The transceiver may include a plurality of local oscillator (LO) generators configured to generate a plurality of LO signals, respectively, for mixing with one or more communication signals. The transceiver also includes a first synthesizer configured to generate a first reference signal and a second synthesizer configured to generate a second reference signal. The transceiver also includes a distribution circuit. The distribution circuit is configured to switch an input to at least one of the LO generators between the first and second reference signals for tuning each of the at least one of the LO generators between two different LO frequencies and to input to the other ones of the LO generators the first reference signal for tuning each of the other ones of the LO generators to an LO frequency.
