  • Publication number: 20240069847
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling a display system. The methods comprise: detecting an occurrence of an event; initiating a display session based on the event being of an event type to trigger a display session; and selecting media content (MC) for display by computing devices (ICDs) (wherein ICDs are located in areas or sections (SA/S) of a venue); selecting a first SA/S at which display of MC is to begin; identifying first CDs (FCDs) that are located in the first SA/S; causing FCDs to notify users that FCDs are to be moved into positions in which first pixel panels are visible by persons located outside of the first SA/S; and causing each FCD to display a respective pixel portion of a first electronic graphic (FEI) contained in MC, whereby an entirety of FEI is displayed collectively by FCDs.

  • Publication number: 20230392822
    Abstract: An air moving device (AMD) includes a housing that dampens noise and routes airflow. The AMD housing includes a focal-bearing surface that has an associated focal point. The focal-bearing surface routes airflow through the AMD housing and reflects and concentrates noise to the focal point. The AMD housing further includes a noise dampening structure at the focal point to reduce, absorb, and/or dampen the concentrated noise. Because the noise is concentrated, a relatively smaller size noise dampening structure may effectively or adequately reduce or dampen AMD noise. The smaller size noise dampening structure relatively reduces airflow impedance. As such, AMD housing may provide for both reduced AMD noise and relatively reduced airflow impedance therein and/or therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20230324069
    Abstract: A building system for a building. The building system can include one or more memory devices. The one or more memory device can store instructions. The instructions, when executed by one or more processors, can cause the one or more processors to receive, from one or more sensors, air quality measurements associated with one or more spaces of the building, and generate, using the air quality measurements, a productivity score for at least one of the building or at least one space of the one or more spaces of the building. The productivity score can be based on a predicted productivity or effect on productivity of one or more occupants of the building in view of the air quality measurements.

  • Publication number: 20230326720
    Abstract: An apparatus for forming a plasma may include one or more coupling ports to accept a radiofrequency (RF) current. The apparatus may additionally include one or more coupling structures which may include one or more conductive loops to permit the RF current to conduct from at least a first portion of the one or more coupling ports to at least a second port of the one or more coupling ports. The one or more conductive loops may each be configured to exhibit a first value of inductance in the absence of the plasma and to exhibit a second value of inductance in the presence of the plasma. The one or more coupling structures may each include a reactive element, in which each reactive element is coupled to a corresponding one of the one or more conductive loops so as to form a corresponding number of coupling structures. Each RF coupling structure may have a resonant frequency that increases in response to the presence of the plasma.
