A method and apparatus for providing: multimedia services to a local area network includes processing that begins by receiving a plurality of channels from at least one multimedia source. The processing continues by receiving selection requests from at least one client module via a communication path. The processing continues by generating a set of channel select commands from the select request. The processing continues by selecting a set of channels from the plurality of channels based on the set of channel select commands. The processing continues by mixing the set of channels into a stream of channel data. The processing then continues by transmitting the stream of channel data via the communication path to the at least one client module such that each client associated with a client module receives the channel data for the respective channels that they had selected.


A viewer fovea tracking generator is configured to analyze image data corresponding to a viewing of the video program via an A/V player by at least one viewer, and to generate fovea tracking data corresponding to the at least one viewer. A network interface configured to transmit the fovea tracking data to the video source via a network. The video program is fovea encoded by the video source in accordance with the fovea tracking data.


Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a system receives indexing data delineating a plurality of program segments in a video signal that each include a sequence of images of the video signal. The indexing data further indicates content contained in the plurality of program segments. A digest generator generates digest data associated with the video signal based on the indexing data, wherein the digest data indicates a plurality of digest segments that constitute a noncontiguous subset of the video signal. Other embodiments are disclosed.


A tile processor is configured to analyze sensor data to identify the at least one viewer and to generate tile configuration data in response to the identification of the at least one viewer that indicates a tiled partitioning of a screen display into a plurality of tiled regions. An A/V player generates tiled display data for display of the at least video program on a display device in accordance with the tile configuration data.


A viewer state generator analyzes input data corresponding to a viewing of a plurality video programs via the A/V player by at least one viewer, to determine a viewer state of the at least one viewer corresponding to the plurality of video programs and to generate viewer state data that indicates the viewer state corresponding to the plurality of video programs. A recommendation selection generator processes the viewer state data, and desired viewer state data than indicates a desired viewer state to generate recommendation data indicating at least one additional video program.


A user interest analysis generator analyzes input data corresponding to a viewing of the media file by the viewer, to determine a period of interest of the viewer and to generate viewer interest data that indicates the period of interest. A recommendation selection generator configured to process the viewer interest data to automatically generate recommendation data indicating at least one additional media file related to content of the media file being displayed during the period of interest, for display to the viewer by a display device associated with an e-reader.


Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a system that includes a signal interface configured to receive a plurality of video signals from a corresponding plurality of video cameras. A surveillance processor is configured to process the plurality of video signals and to recognize at least one person in at least one of the plurality of video signals and an emotional state corresponding to the at least one person and that generates surveillance data corresponding to the at least one person, based on the emotional state corresponding to the at least one person. Other embodiments are disclosed.


Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a system that includes a video codec configured to generate a processed video signal based on the image sequence. A photo generation module is configured to recognize an object of interest in the image sequence and generate photo data from a selected image in the image sequence that includes the object of interest. Other embodiments are disclosed.


Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a video camera system that includes a first subset of video cameras that are configured to generate at least one broadcast video signal of an event, and a second subset of video cameras that are each individually controllable in response to subscriber control data from a corresponding one of a plurality of video player systems to generate a plurality of processed video signals of the event. A video access server receives the subscriber control data from the video player systems corresponding to a plurality of subscribers for control of the second subset of video cameras, and for routing the processed video signals of the event such that each of the plurality of processed video signals of the event is routed to the corresponding one of the plurality of video player systems. Other embodiments are disclosed.

An orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) communication system includes a first interface having a first cable coupler to couple to a first end of a coaxial cable, and a first plurality of signal pathways coupled to the first cable coupler. Each signal pathway of the first plurality includes a physical (PHY) layer component and a radio frequency (RF) front end coupled to the PHY layer component. The system further includes a second interface having a second cable coupler to couple to a second end of a coaxial cable, and a second plurality of signal pathways coupled to the second cable coupler. Each signal pathway of the second plurality corresponds to a signal pathway of the first plurality and includes a PHY layer component and an RF front end coupled to the PHY layer component.
