Vector Space Lightweight Directory Access Protocol Data Search

A computer-implemented method, apparatus, and computer program product for performing a search for data. In one embodiment, the process converts each character of the search query into a phonetic variant to form an inflected search query. The process then identifies a set of inflected data fields of a vector space ...


Beyond Field-of-View Tracked Object Positional Indicators

A system and method for implementing beyond field-of-view tracked object positional indicators for television event directors and camera operators. The present invention includes a camera having a field-of-view. The camera tracks an off-screen object. A coordinate manager blends an on-screen indication of distance that the object is away from said ...


Automatic announcer voice removal from a sporting event

A sound processing circuit divides an audio input signal of a televised sporting event into multiple audio segments. The audio input signal includes crowd noise and announcer commentary. If an audio segment does not exceed a pre-defined amplitude threshold, a voice removal utility adds the audio segment to a recent ...


Visualization interface of continuous waveform multi-speaker identification

The programming instructions are operable to create a voiceprint from the current waveform if the current waveform is of a human voice. Furthermore, the programming instructions are operable to determine one of whether a match exists between the voiceprint and one library waveform of one or more library waveforms, whether ...


Reducing multipath signal degradation effects in a wireless transmission system

A transmitter transmits a signal to a receiver along a transmission path. The respective positions of the transmitter and the receiver are determined, and notice is received that a moving vehicle is proximate to the transmission path. Responsive to such notice, the moving vehicle position is determined, and such position ...



Hybrid ultrasonic and radio frequency identification system and method

A radio frequency identification system and method includes a tag reader and radio frequency identification tag. The tag reader includes an ultrasonic transducer capable of transmitting tones at selected ultrasonic frequencies and a radio transmitter capable of transmitting signals at selected radio frequencies. The tag reader includes a radio receiver ...
