    Abstract: The present invention discloses a low power dissipation Bluetooth mesh network system and a communication method thereof. The Bluetooth mesh network system includes a friend node and a lower power node. The friend node operates as a proxy server terminal to perform a proxy server broadcast. The lower power node operates as a proxy client and establishes a connection with the friend node based on a proxy protocol when the proxy server broadcast is received and identified. The friend node further filters out an invalid packet unrelated to the low power node and stores a valid packet related to the low power node so as to transmit the valid packet to the low power node when the low power node switches from a sleep status to a wakeup status.

  • Patent number: 11120289
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for performing parallel histogram calculation with application to palette table derivation are disclosed. An encoder calculates a first histogram for a first portion of pixel component value bits of a block of pixels. Then, the encoder selects a first number of the highest pixel count bins from the first histogram. Also, the encoder calculates a second histogram for a second portion of pixel component value bits of the block. The encoder selects a second number of the highest pixel count bins from the second histogram. A third histogram is calculated from the concatenation of bits assigned to the first and second number of bins, and the highest pixel count bins are selected from the third histogram. A palette table is derived based on these highest pixel count bins selected from the third histogram, and the block of pixels is encoded using the palette table.

  • Publication number: 20210281912
    Abstract: A server offloads graphics effects processing to a client device with graphics processing resources by determining a modification to a graphics effects operation, generating a portion of a rendered video stream using the modification to the graphics effects operation, and providing an encoded representation of the portion of the rendered video stream to the client device, along with metadata representing the modification implemented. The client device decodes the encoded representation to recover the portion of the rendered video stream and selectively performs a graphics effects operation on the recovered portion to at least partially revert the resulting graphics effects for the portion to the intended effects without the modification implemented by the server.

  • Publication number: 20210275908
    Abstract: An engagement analytics engine of a computing device analyzes one or more of scene representations, player inputs, or player meta information and generates corresponding engagement data indicative of a level of engagement corresponding to the represented scene. The engagement analytics engine generates encoding parameters based on the engagement data to cause scenes or regions within scenes to be encoded with a level of quality based on the indicated level of engagement. In some examples, the engagement analytics engine generates rendering parameters based on the engagement data to cause scenes to be rendered with a frame rate or quality parameters based on the indicated level of engagement. In some examples, the engagement analytics engine causes a load balancer to shift workloads associated with one or more scenes to higher or lower performance servers based on the engagement data.
