  • Publication number: 20130173818
    Abstract: A device providing a real-time live video data stream file includes a memory, a processor, and a buffer. The memory stores a first video file. The processor is used for receiving a first access command generated by a Universal Plug and Play client device for accessing the first video file, and converting an original real-time video data stream to a real-time video data stream file with a predetermined format according to the first access command. The buffer is used for storing the real-time video data stream file temporarily. Therefore, the real-time video data stream file stored in the buffer can be accessed and played by the Universal Plug and Play client device.

  • Patent number: 8467001
    Abstract: A video system suitable for being set in one of several scene modes and controlling one of several ambient light sources is disclosed. The video system includes a storage unit, a signal transceiver, and a control module. The storage unit stores several brightness setting values, in which the brightness setting values correspond to the scene modes and/or several specification data respectively, and the specification data is contained in the several ambient light sources respectively. The signal transceiver is used for receiving the specification data of one of the ambient light sources. The control module is electrically coupled to the signal transceiver, and controls the signal transceiver to transmit a corresponding brightness setting value in the storage unit to the ambient light source according to the set scene mode and the received specification data.

  • Patent number: 8452029
    Abstract: An audio system including an inverter, a first amplifier, a first mixer, a main speaker, and a first audio output port is provided. The inverter receives a first audio signal and inverts the first audio signal into an inverted audio signal. The first amplifier receives the inverted audio signal from the inverter and multiplies the inverted audio signal by a first gain to generate a first compensating audio signal. The first mixer receives a second audio signal and mixes the first compensating audio signal with the second audio signal to generate a first low-interference audio signal. The main speaker receives and plays the first audio signal. The first audio output port receives the first low-interference audio signal from the first mixer and transmits the first low-interference audio signal to a first external speaker. An electronic device and a car audio system capable of generating the low-interference audio signal are provided.

  • Publication number: 20130014162
    Abstract: A channel switching method is proposed. The channel switching method is adapted to a video playing system, and includes following steps. Video of a first channel is received and played, and a command to select a second channel is received. Information indicating a status of the second channel is queried, acquired and determined. It further switches to the second channel and plays the video of the second channel if the second channel is not in a commercial playing status.

  • Publication number: 20130007791
    Abstract: A video playing system and a video content channel information query system are proposed. The video playing system includes a video content receiver, a query unit, a receiving unit and a control unit. The video content receiver acquires a video content of a channel for playing, and switches the channel to another channel. The query unit is connected to at least an external device and sends a query request to the external device, where the query request is to query playing status information of a specified channel. The receiving unit receives the playing status information of the specified channel from the external device. In addition, the control unit, according to the playing status information of the specified channel, determines whether to switch the channel from which the video content receiver receives the video content.
