  • Publication number: 20180330760
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a processor with first and second input ports and a memory operably coupled to the processor. The processor can detect streams of media samples at the input ports and determine, in response to the detection of the streams of media samples, a capture start time. The processor can also capture a first frame of a first stream of media samples beginning at the capture start time, and a first frame of a second stream of media samples beginning at a first time subsequent to the capture start time. The processor can also calculate a relative offset time based on the capture start time, the first time, and a rate associated with the second stream of media samples, and store, in the memory, an indication of an association between the captured first frame of the second stream of media samples and the relative offset time.

  • Publication number: 20130169863
    Abstract: In some embodiments, an apparatus comprises a media module and a modification module included in an embedded appliance. The media module is configured to receive a first media signal associated with a first input port of the embedded appliance and a second media signal associated with a second input port of the embedded appliance. The media module is configured to identify a first set of media signal parameters based on the first media signal. The modification module is configured to receive a modification instruction associated with a session format having a second set of media signal parameters different from the first set of media signal parameters. The modification module is configured to modify the first media signal based on the first set of media signal parameters and the modification instruction to produce a first modified media signal in the session format and having the second set of media signal parameters.
