  • Patent number: 11410666
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments enable converting audio signals captured in various formats by various capture devices into a limited number of formats that can be processed by an audio codec (e.g., an Immersive Voice and Audio Services (IVAS) codec). In an embodiment, a simplification unit of the audio device receives an audio signal captured by one or more audio capture devices coupled to the audio device. The simplification unit determines whether the audio signal is in a format that is supported/not supported by an encoding unit of the audio device. Based on the determining, the simplification unit, converts the audio signal into a format that is supported by the encoding unit. In an embodiment, if the simplification unit determines that the audio signal is in a spatial format, the simplification unit can convert the audio signal into a spatial “mezzanine” format supported by the encoding.

  • Patent number: 11363340
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing media content streaming/downloading and playback, and, more particularly, to methods, systems, and apparatuses for implementing video quality optimization based on display capabilities. In various embodiments, a computing system might receive user input from a user indicating a user request for media content. The computing system might autonomously determine characteristics or attributes of a playback device (i.e., a display device and/or audio playback device, etc.). The computing system might send, to a media content source over a network, a request for the media content, the request comprising information regarding presentation characteristics that are based at least in part on the determined characteristics of the playback device.

  • Patent number: 10972752
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for implementing stereoscopic interleaved compression techniques are disclosed. A system includes a transmitter sending a video stream over a wireless link to a receiver. For each pair of frames, the transmitter encodes a left-half of a first frame of the pair with an amount of compression less than a first threshold and encodes a right-half of the first frame with an amount of compression greater than a second threshold. For a second frame of the pair, the transmitter encodes a right-half of the second frame with an amount of compression less than the first threshold and encodes a left-half of the second frame with an amount of compression greater than the second threshold. The transmitter conveys encoded half-frames and indications of an amount of compression used for each half-frame to a receiver. The receiver receives, decodes, and drives the encoded half-frames to a display.

  • Patent number: 10970332
    Abstract: A method of managing digital content includes displaying a user interface on a display screen of the electronic device. A search instruction is generated according to a search condition. Each of a plurality of cloud servers is controlled to search for digital content meeting the search condition. Related information of the digital content meeting the search condition is received from each of the plurality of cloud servers. A user interface object is generated according to the related information received from each of the plurality of cloud servers, such that a plurality of user interface objects are obtained. Once an object list is generated by aggregating the plurality of the user interface objects, the object list is displayed on a display screen.

  • Patent number: 10932007
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing media content streaming/downloading and playback, and, more particularly, to methods, systems, and apparatuses for implementing video quality optimization based on display capabilities. In various embodiments, a computing system might receive user input from a user indicating a user request for media content. The computing system might autonomously determine characteristics or attributes of a playback device (i.e., a display device and/or audio playback device, etc.). The computing system might send, to a media content source over a network, a request for the media content, the request comprising information regarding presentation characteristics that are based at least in part on the determined characteristics of the playback device.

  • Patent number: 10880804
    Abstract: Wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) devices that are not associated with a specific wireless carrier can be contractually operated as an extension of the specific Wi-Fi carrier. In this case, a display screen of a mobile device, that is currently communicating with the Wi-Fi device as an extension of the carrier, can display the carrier info. The display can be a result of a comparison between an internal mobile device data store and/or an external list that comprises the Wi-Fi devices that are acting as extensions of the carrier for a 5G network.

  • Patent number: 10866702
    Abstract: A device concurrently graphs a first data visualization and a second data visualization on a display. The first data visualization and the second data visualization share a common axis corresponding to a shared data field from a data source. The first data visualization comprises graphical marks corresponding to data values of a first data field from the data source and the second data visualization comprises graphical marks corresponding to data values of a second data field. A user moves a first graphical mark from a first location corresponding to an actual data value of the first data field to a second location, creating a first hypothetical value of the first data field. The device moves a second graphical mark in the second data visualization to an adjusted location corresponding to a computed hypothetical value for the second data field according to the first hypothetical value of the first data field.

  • Patent number: 10860266
    Abstract: A system receives a request to create a template. Responsive to the request, the system displays a user interface including at least a preview and configuration region, and a template variables region. While displaying the user interface, the system receives user input that selects a respective variable for inclusion in the template. Responsive to the user input, the system updates the configurable preview of the template to include the respective variable, and displays user interface elements used to define input-acceptance rules for the respective variable. The system receives user input at the user interface elements to define an input-acceptance rule having at least one condition that must be satisfied before input will be accepted via the respective variable when that respective variable is used in conjunction with the template. Responsive to the user input at the user interface elements, the system associates the respective variable with the input-acceptance rule.
