Method for distance based content mirroring and mirroring transfer


A method of minoring primary media content from a portable computing device to a network of audiovisual (av) units and handing over the mirroring among the network of av units is provided with a predetermined value index and an operational visual range for the network of av units. The signal strength between the portable computing device and an arbitrary unit of the network of av units and the geospatial location of the portable computing device is measured when calculating a value index.

Server side adaptive bit rate reporting


A server receives metadata associated with an advertisement in a transport signal stream from an encoder, the metadata identifying a specified frame of the transport signal stream corresponding to a point in time of the advertisement. The server instructs an encoder, by a server, to insert a marker into the specified frame of the transport signal stream, the marker identifying the point in time of the advertisement.

Method for coding pulse vectors using statistical properties


Improved methods for coding an ensemble of pulse vectors utilize statistical models (i.e., probability models) for the ensemble of pulse vectors, to more efficiently code each pulse vector of the ensemble. At least one pulse parameter describing the non-zero pulses of a given pulse vector is coded using the statistical models and the number of non-zero pulse positions for the given pulse vector.
