Server side adaptive bit rate control for http streaming clients

Methods and systems are described for adaptively transmitting streaming data to a client. In one embodiment, the method comprises receiving, in a server, a request for a data asset from the client, transcoding at least an segment of the data asset according to initial transcoding parameters, transmitting a first fragment of the transcoded segment of the data asset from the server to the client over a communication channel, generating an estimate of a bandwidth of the communications channel at least in part from information acknowledging reception of at least the first fragment of the transcoded segment of the data asset by the client, generating adaptive transcoding parameters at least in part from an estimate of a bandwidth of the communications channel, the estimate generated at the server, transcoding a further segment of the data asset according to the adaptive transcoding parameters, and transmitting the further segment of the data asset..

Adaptive data segment delivery arbitration for bandwidth optimization

Systems, devices and processes are described to adapt segment requests placed by an autonomous media player during media streaming to compensate for fluctuations in the bandwidth consumed by the requested segments due to variances in the underlying video content. By providing predictive data about the bandwidth consumption of upcoming video segments, client devices can adapt requests for future segments accordingly.

Multiprotocol multicast streaming proxy

Multiprotocol multicast streaming proxy techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a response is sent by a proxy service for receipt by a client device responsive to receipt of a request from the client device to obtain streaming data from a service provider via a network.

P2p streaming support

The present invention relates to methods and arrangements to optimize load transportation between a p2p live streaming network and an access network. The method comprises steps like: a peer in the access network selects a live channel to use; a request comprising information of the selected channel is sent from the access network to the streaming network; a converter node connecting the p2p live streaming network and the access network detects that a number of peers in the access network using the selected channel has reached a predetermined threshold value (t); and chunks that are parts of the selected channel arriving from peers in the streaming network are converted in the converter node from p2p format to multicast format..

System and method to use a cloud-based platform supported by an api to authenticate remote users and to provide pki- and pmi- based distributed locking of content and distributed unlocking of protected content

Through use of an api such entities may optionally use their own public key infrastructure (pki) and privilege management infrastructure (pmi) components (such as: registration authority, ra; certification authority, ca; hardware security module, hsm) and access through a provided api to a platform which integrates its own pki and pmi and attribute authority (aa) or alternatively, a platform (via an api interface to an entity) can provide all pki and pmi needs and functions. As an alternative to a platform being located in the cloud, a platform could be located elsewhere, such as within the network domain of an entity.


Streaming display data from a mobile device using backscatter communications

A method of wirelessly communicating a screen image between a mobile device and a base station coupled to a display terminal includes establishing a wireless display session between the mobile device and the base station. Electromagnetic (“em”) radiation emitted from the base station is incident upon an antenna of the mobile device.

Music streaming using supported services

An example method includes sending a first message from a media playback system to a curating service server where the first message includes an indication of a service provider that is accessible to the media playback system. The example method further includes the media playback system receiving a message from the curating service server, where the message includes a media item identifier.
