  • Patent number: 10327041
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and machine-readable media are disclosed for providing an audio preview of songs and other audio elements. In some embodiments, an electronic device may operate in either a “play mode,” which allows a user to listen to songs in a normal fashion, or in a “preview mode,” which may be used to provide previews of songs to a user in succession. In some embodiments, the electronic device may seamlessly transition between play mode and preview mode. For example, the electronic device may pause a currently-playing song when the mode of operation switches from play mode to preview mode so that, if the user exits out of preview mode, the original song may be resumed from the pause point. In some embodiments, the electronic device may provide a multi-directional visual interface that allows a user to control the succession of previews provided in preview mode.

The apparatus determines, according to a status of a first indication signal, whether to trigger a signal compensation operation; determines, according to a status of a second indication signal, a first adjustment condition is met, compares power of a received signal with a power threshold, and if the power of the received signal is greater than the threshold power, compensates the received signal according to a first adjustment factor; and if the status of the second indication signal does not meet the first adjustment condition, determines the status of the second indication signal meets a second adjustment condition, performs auxiliary compensation according to a second adjustment factor. By compensating signal distortion caused by chip stacking for a received signal, this reduces costs for implementing a multi-channel array system without the need to increase system complexity.

  • Patent number: 9628740
    Abstract: An upstream video processor may perform video processing upon video data to created processed video data. The video processing may include at least one of color correction, contrast correction, gamma correction, sharpness enhancement, and edge enhancement. Metadata indicative of the performed video processing may also be generated. The processed video data and metadata may be passed to a downstream video processor, the latter for use in determining what further video processing, if any, to apply. An intermediate video processor may receive video data and metadata indicating video processing performed thereupon by an upstream video processor. Based on the received metadata, additional video processing may be performed, and new metadata indicating the additional video processing may be generated.

  • Patent number: 9612909
    Abstract: A computer system includes an interrupt controller to notify a bus error occurrence, and a multithreaded processor. The multithreaded processor includes a schedule register that settles a sequence of performing a plurality of virtual CPUs and stores data for virtual CPUs to be performed, and a virtual CPU execution portion that performs virtual CPUs according to a sequence settled by the schedule register. Virtual CPUs operate different operating systems (OS's) and include a first virtual CPU that operates a management OS to manage other OS's. When notified of bus error occurrence, the virtual CPU execution portion operates only the first virtual CPU regardless of an execution sequence settled in the schedule register. The first virtual CPU reinitializes a bus where an error occurred.

  • Patent number: 9438719
    Abstract: One embodiment is a device having an elongate pliable screen has first and second connection elements that connect together to hold, in a looped shape, a substrate carrying the screen, a receiver unit that receives notifications coming from an external appliance, and a control unit that causes received notifications to be rendered using a first rendering mode or a second rendering mode. The control unit detects the connection state of the first and second connection elements and causes a received notification to be rendered in the first or the second rendering mode as a function of the detected connection state between the connection elements. The first and second rendering modes may comprise respectively: displaying a symbolic or abridged picture indicative of the received notification, or displaying the content of a message conveyed by the received notification, depending on whether the first and second connection elements are connected together or disconnected.

  • Patent number: 9417697
    Abstract: Various embodiments include a three-dimensional (3D) translator device for translating two-dimensional (2D) visual imagery into 3D physical representations that users can feel with their fingers and thus interact with and experience physically. The 3D translator device may enable users to feel/interact with 2D images displayed on devices such as 2D touchscreen devices by translating the 2D images into a 3D touch surface coordinate data set. The 3D translator device may actuate based on the 3D touch surface coordinate data set so that the users can feel the 3D representation of the 2D images, and translating the users' touches on the 3D translator device's 3D touchpanel into touch inputs that can be processed by a 2D touchscreen device (i.e., “2D touch inputs).
