Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 709: Electrical Computers And Digital Processing Systems: Multicomputer Data Transferring

This class provides for an electrical computer or digital data processing system or corresponding data processing method including apparatus or steps for transferring data or instruction information between a plurality of computers wherein the computers employ the data or instructions before or after transferring and the employing affects said transfer of data or instruction information. The class includes - process or apparatus for transferring data among a plurality of spatially distributed (i.e., situated, at plural locations) computers or digital data processing systems via one or more communications media (e.g., computer networks).

Subclass 203: Compression/decompression
Subclass 231: Microprocessor
Subclass 232: Array of elements (e.g., AND/OR array, etc.)

Class 725: Interactive Video Distribution Systems

This class contains interactive video distribution processes, systems, and elements thereof, which are characterized by point-to-multipoint system configurations, and which are used for the unidirectional distribution or delivery of motion video data resulting from interactions between systems operators (access or service providers) or users (subscribers) and systems elements. These systems include dedicated communications systems, such as television distribution systems, which primarily distribute or deliver motion video data in the manner indicated, but which may, in addition, provide a framework for further, diverse data communications or services in either unidirectional or bidirectional form. Typically, system operators interface with transmitter-side elements or users interface with receiver-side elements in order to facilitate, through interaction with such elements, the dynamic control of data processing or data flow at various points in the systems. This interaction is typically occasional or intermittent in nature.

Subclass 87: Video-on-demand
Subclass 90: With particular transmission scheme (e.g., transmitting I-frames only)
Subclass 93: Control process
Subclass 94: Buffering and switching
Subclass 96: In accordance with server or network congestion
Subclass 97: Scheduling (e.g., grouping users together)
Subclass 116: Control process
Subclass 118: Transmission network
Subclass 119: Having significant intermediate network unit (e.g., hub, substation, etc.)
Subclass 127: Network component (e.g., filter, tap, splitter, amplifier, repeater, etc.)
Subclass 131: Receiver (e.g., set-top box)

Class 370: Multiplex Communications

This is the generic class for multiplexing or duplexing systems, methods, or apparatus.

Subclass 390: Replicate messages for multiple destination distribution
