Technology shall mean the eViewMediaEngine which is owned by Licensor and protected by USA Patent numbers 7,003,168, 6,711,299 and 6,904,175.
The technology provides APIs to control the processes of uploading the ME format media into an archive that supports media distribution and rendering. The underlying engine components reside in both the execution time client and server(s). The archive structure supports maintaining more than one copy of an object for both redundancy and for load sharing considerations. Each archive object in the ME format has, as a minimum
â€¢ Video index file(s)
â€¢ Video data file(s)
â€¢ Audio index file(s)
â€¢ Audio data file(s)
Within the scope of this agreement, it is understood that the ME format will be extended to include
â€¢ Script index file(s)
â€¢ Script data file(s)
The archive will also be extended to support the Asier encryption model.
â€¢ Access the index and data files from an archive
â€¢ Buffer the video object such that the video starts to play quickly (typically within 3 seconds), but can sustain interruptions in the flow of data from the server.
â€¢ Manage the overall processor and bandwidth constraints. The player supports bandwidth coordination among the videos that are playing simultaneously. Each video can be designated as â€œprimaryâ€ or â€œsecondaryâ€. When initial buffering occurs, primaries are able to get to the initial fast start state (3 seconds worth of render time) before a secondary may start. At any time while playing/buffering, the secondary(s) will back off if a primary is about to stall for lack of data. Any video may have its buffering bandwidth effect controlled to a percentage of its computed average bandwidth requirement (i.e., a video may be loaded at 110% of its average bit rate rather than loading as fast as it can – ME supports both paradigms).
â€¢ Start a video on any designated frame. The player supports an API that includes a request to play from frame(x) to frame(y) and/or start playing to end at frame(x). This is used to effect slider drag operations that allow the subscriber to advance or backup to any position within a movie with no dependence on prior buffering.
â€¢ Render the video from an internal memory cache. The video is buffered from a stream and is not stored on the local disk. Thus, a two hour movie is never completely contained within the client machine.
â€¢ Support a coordinated actor/director rendering paradigm. Each video rendered on the web page is represented by a Java actor. The page also contains, in this paradigm, a Java director that controls everything visualized by the actor(s) on the page. The director contains a context for each video being managed by it. At any instant in time, an actor is associated (receiving rendering data) with one context within the director. The director may have more contexts than actors in order to buffer video data before it is needed. The contexts may be programmed to trigger events when they get to certain states (i.e., when playing a particular frame, when there is enough data buffered to safely play, when the user clicks on an actor associated with the context, etc.). Each context also supports a complete API control mechanism. The combination of the event architecture and the API allows the context events to trigger control actions in other contexts. This supports a high degree of coordination between videos on the page. As a video plays to certain frames (arrives at certain scenes), another video (or image) on the page may be triggered to take an action.
â€¢ Automatically recover from server disconnects. When connected to a web server to pull the video data, the player will encounter frequent disconnects during the course of a two hour period. The technology supports automatically detecting that this has occurred and to reconnect before the object buffer is drained.
â€¢ Automatically select from multiple object formats. Any ME archive object may be represented in more than one format (resolution, frame rate, etc.). The player environment is capable of analyzing the processor speed and available bandwidth and selecting an appropriate format. The player may also be directed to select or change formats while playing and not be required to start over.
â€¢ Restrict access to the video. The Java player is restricted to operation within a specific web domain. If a different web page tries to activate a player not authorized for it, the player will fail to run. It is understood that under this agreement, this security model will be extended to support the Asier encryption model.
â€¢ Support complex ME formats. The complex ME object format is structurally the same, but supports dynamic frame rate and resolution settings. The video may use a different frame rate for each included scene.
The technology provides a comprehensive solution for live video chat. The chat architecture includes a client API that supports
â€¢ Connecting the client to a VXN server. This operation results in an internal endpoint or IP address that is used to route data from one chat client to another.
â€¢ Enabling local camera capture. The video from the camera is automatically made available to the internal chat architecture for both local display and transmission to the server for use in the chat conference.
â€¢ Making a call. The API allows the local client to make a call through the VXN connection to anyone connected to the VXN by referencing the destinationâ€™s endpoint address. After the appropriate handshake, this will cause the local clientâ€™s audio and video to be transmitted to the destination.
â€¢ Making multiparty calls. The technology supports up to an 8 party call, depending on available bandwidth.
â€¢ Controlling call parameters. The API supports controlling parameters that affect the destinationâ€™s user experience and the bandwidth usage for both parties. These include resolution, frame rate, and quality settings. Most parameters can be changed mid-call.
â€¢ Making audio only calls.
â€¢ Interoperation with H.323 devices.
The technology consists of a combination of source and object (executable) code and associated documentation
â€¢ ME encoder Windows dynamic link library executables
â€¢ ME encoder controller Java applet executable
â€¢ ME player Java applet executable
â€¢ ME upload applet executable
â€¢ ME installer applet executable
â€¢ ME chat installer executable
â€¢ ME chat engine Java applet executable
â€¢ ME chat engine Windows dynamic link library executables
â€¢ ME media engine hosting service PHP executable (obfuscated source code)

US Patent#, Title/Description
6,037,971 — Methods and apparatus for the creation and transmission of 3-dimensional images 2 claims. Three-dimensional color images are produced by combining the red image plane from a left color camera and the blue and green image planes from a right color camera. Techniques for compensating for over or underexposure in a particular image plane are deployed as well as techniques for minimizing subjective disturbance when viewing relatively pure color regions of a 3-dimensional image and for transmission of 3-dimensional color television images to users. Filed February 19, 1998. Issued March 14, 2000.
5,969,722 — Methods and apparatus for creation of three-dimensional wire frames and for three-dimensional stereo morphing 4 Claims. A 3-dimensional wire frame representation is derived from a real 3-dimensional objects, where the surface of the object is generally featureless, by projecting a non-uniform pattern of randomly colored spots onto the 3-dimensional object and capturing images of the object by two cameras located at different positions. A wire frame representation of the object is then reconstructed from corresponding colored spots on the images captured by the two cameras. Wire frame representations are rapidly created using generic wire frames which are prototypical of a class of objects and which are modifiable to correspond to a specific instance of the class. A set of generic wire frames are bundled as a tool kit with software for editing wire frames. A method of morphing from a source 3-dimensional stereo rendered wire frame to a target rendered wire frame is also disclosed and the apparent camera viewpoint can change during morphing. Filed October 6, 1997. Issued October 19, 1999.
