  • Publication number: 20200012861
    Abstract: A media system generally includes a memory device that stores an event datastore that stores a plurality of event records, each event record corresponding to a respective event and event metadata describing at least one feature of the event. The media system (a) receives a request to generate an aggregated clip comprised of one or more media segments, where each media segment depicts a respective event; (b) for each event record from at least a subset of the plurality of event records, determines an interest level of the event corresponding to the event record; (c) determines one or more events to depict in the aggregated clip based on the respective interest levels of the one or more events; (d) generates the aggregated clip based on the respective media segments that depict the one or more events; and (e) transmits the aggregated clip to a user device.

  • Patent number: 10438248
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for providing advertising services in a predictive manner to a device with an advertising exchange. In one embodiment, a system receives a configuration call from a device upon initiation of a software application and associated advertising services software on the device. The system generates, prior to a predicted ad play event on the device, a predictive ad request for obtaining at least one advertisement (ad) from at least one of an ad store and an advertising exchange prior to the predicted ad play event. The at least one ad is stored on the device prior to an actual ad play event. The system determines, just prior to the actual ad play event, a bandwidth for a connection between the device and the system. The system determines if any ad source includes at least one ad that is more likely to convert or cause user interaction than the ads stored on the device based on the bandwidth for the connection between the device and the system.

  • Patent number: 9336538
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for providing advertising services to a device with an advertising exchange. In one embodiment, a system receives a configuration call from a device upon initiation of a software application and associated advertising services software on the device. The system sends a configuration file to the device in response to the configuration call. The configuration file includes different options for obtaining an advertisement (ad) to play on the device during an ad play event. The options include playing an ad cached on the device, obtaining at least one ad from an ad store of the system, and obtaining at least one ad from an advertising exchange that includes third party participants.

  • Publication number: 20150287102
    Abstract: Methods and systems are described for providing advertising services for devices by accessing one or more ad databases including third party ad databases using ad serving tags. In one embodiment, a system includes a storage medium to store one or more software programs and processing logic that is configured to execute instructions of at least one software program to receive an advertising request from a device upon the device having an ad play event for an initiated software application, send an ad call or request to an ad store having ad campaigns and ads, and receive an ad response from the ad store in response to the ad call or request. The ad response includes a payload with one or more ads or potential ad campaigns for being streamed to the device or an ad serving tag for accessing one or more third party ad databases.

  • Patent number: 7548899
    Abstract: Improved approaches to accessing information are disclosed. The improved approaches permit access to information through user interaction with a series of menus. The menus within the series of menus are interrelated and contain words or phrases. A phrase, sentence or question is constructed from the user interaction with the series of menus. The resulting phrase, sentence or question can be processed to access and retrieve appropriate information. The improved approaches avoid the need for users to enter words or text characters through tedious and frustrating use of a keypad (particularly when reduced in size).

  • Patent number: 7013263
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to process online interactions from numerous sources, coming from different time frames and systems. One embodiment includes a facilitator, an interaction processor, and an action generator. The facilitator facilitates interactions in one or more devices, where interactions typically occur. The processor can consolidate and analyze interactions from multiple sources, in different formats, and collected at different time frames, to extract intelligence from them. The processor processes such interactions, and generates an interaction descriptor for each interaction. A descriptor can include a generalization of the corresponding interaction, and at least a part of the interaction. Descriptors for different types of interactions can be represented by the same format to allow the processor to analyze them together.
