A packet reception state monitoring unit calculates a target stored data number as a target number of audio packets stored in a memory based on the variation in the reception intervals of audio packets, and a reproduction control unit controls the audio reproduction speed in accordance with the difference between the target stored data number and a memory-stored data number. When the memory-stored data number is smaller than the target stored data number, reproduction control is performed in a low-speed reproduction mode at a lower speed than a regular reproduction speed. When the memory-stored data number is larger than the target stored data number, reproduction control is performed in a high-speed reproduction mode at a higher speed than the regular reproduction speed. A reproduction speed changing process is performed, with hysteresis being given to transitions of the difference between the memory-stored data number and the target stored data number.


A communication system and the method of operation thereof includes: a block size unit for receiving an input digital data stream; a progressive-Golomb encoder, coupled to the block size unit, for encoding a progressive-Golomb codeword from the input digital data stream; and a transmitter unit, coupled to the progressive-Golomb encoder for transferring the progressive-Golomb codeword to an output device.

According to one aspect of the present disclosure, a method is implemented by a mobile computing device to authenticate a user. A first signal indicative of a body tremor of a limb holding the mobile computing device is detected. A second signal indicative of a body tremor of a limb to which a separate wearable computing device is secured is also detected. Based on a comparison of the body tremors, a determination is made as to whether the limbs are the same limb. A user account associated with the wearable computing device is authenticated based on the determining indicating that the limbs are the same limb.


A projection type image display device (100) including a light source (40), an illumination optical system (30) which uniformly radiates light flux emitted from the light source (40) onto a surface (SCR) of an image modulation element which becomes a primary image surface, a projection optical system, capable of being set at a distance very close to a focal distance of a projection image, which magnifies and projects image information of the primary image surface modulated by the image modulation element onto a projection surface which becomes a secondary image surface, and a comer focus control section capable of automatically adjusting a focal distance of at least corner regions of the projection image to a focal distance corresponding to a projection distance of the projection image.

The present disclosure provides a projection device for adapting a property of a projected user interface. The device determines at least one property of a surface onto which a user interface is projected. The property of the projected user interface is changed based on the at least one property of the surface onto which the projected user interface is projected.


A display apparatus that includes circuitry that displays a user interface screen including device information that identifies a plurality of output device groups and a plurality of input device groups to control connection between one of the output device groups and one of the input device groups; and receives an input that designates a combination of said one of the output device groups and said one of the input device groups, the user interface screen includes a matrix comprising a plurality of cells in a row direction and a column direction, the input designates the combination by designating one of grouped cells corresponding to the combination of said one of the output device groups and said one of the input device groups in the matrix, and the grouped cells are grouped such that the input designates the combination as a group.


A lifelog camera is configured to capture a digital image without user input that commands the capturing of the digital image. The lifelog camera includes a control circuit configured to detect a state transition in a signal from a sensor, the state transition indicative of a change in user activity; a camera module that captures the digital image under the control of the control circuit in response to the detection of the state transition; and a memory in which the digital image is stored.

A device includes a touch screen display comprising a touch sensitive panel and a display. The touch sensitive panel receives a touch event, and records the touch event as touch panel data. The device analyzes the touch panel data to identify the touch event as a valid or a non-valid touch event, determines, if the touch event is a non-valid touch event and based on the touch panel data, one or more regions of a touch panel display associated with the non-valid touch event, and turns off or dims the determined one or more regions of the touch panel display.

The invention is directed to reducing paging overhead in a network (500). An exemplary method comprises: determining whether a user equipment (UE) (451) is substantially stationary, wherein the UE (451) is located in a first network cell (410) associated with a network (500); in response to determining the UE (451) is substantially stationary, transmitting an indicator to the network (500); determining whether the UE (451) moves from the first network cell (410) to a second network cell (420); and in response to determining the UE (451) moves from the first network cell (410) to the second network cell (420), transmitting updated location information associated with the UE (451) to the network (500).
