The following chart compares certain claims of Scott’s issued patent to Kontiki, Inc. (“Kontiki”)’s Delivery Management System.1

Scott’s Patent: Claim 1

Kontiki’s Delivery Management System

A media distribution system, comprising:

Kontiki’s peer-assisted delivery technology system is comprised of central directory servers that manage all network interactions, grid delivery servers that provide distributed 24/7 access to all source content, and individual computers or “peers” running Kontiki’s delivery client.”

a media file database configured to store media files, wherein one or more of the media files have been compressed prior to storage in the media file database;

General Summary of the Delivery Management System’s Satisfaction of Claim Element: Central servers and end-user PCs in the peer-to-peer network are configured to act as a media file database.2

Kontiki’s peer-assisted delivery technology system is comprised of central directory servers that manage all network interactions, grid delivery servers that provide distributed 24/7 access to all source content, and individual computers or “peers” running Kontiki’s delivery client.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/peer-assisted-content-delivery-technology.html (emphasis added)

Kontiki’s peer-assisted delivery technology pulls together existing networks and storage space on both PCs and servers to create a content distribution network. Content is delivered to a user not only from the server where it originates, but also from any number of network-connected computers with copies of the requested content.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/grid-delivery-technology.html

Central servers support secure publishing and end-user PCs act as small caching servers.”

http://www.kontiki.com/_download/Kontiki-DMS-Datasheet-Consumer-Media.pdf

Peer-to-peer technology enables these PCs to act as small caching servers, and the Kontiki Delivery Management System makes intelligent use of this available resource to deliver more content, in richer formats without causing network congestion or interrupting the PC user.”

http://www.kontiki.com/_download/Kontiki-DMS-Datasheet-Enterprise.pdf

The capabilities of the Kontiki Delivery Management System to deliver HD-quality content, which generally has a large file size, suggests that the media files – including HD-quality content – have been compressed prior to storage on the central servers and end-user PCs. For example, Kontiki’s website boasts:

Kontiki’s market-proven peer-assisted delivery technology rapidly delivers HD-quality content to consumer audiences with network-friendly scale, speed and efficiency.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/peer-assisted-content-delivery-technology.html

a computing device configured to receive user requests for delivery of the one or more of the media files stored in the media file database,

the computing device further configured to: identify average network throughput between computing device and the requesting users;

and route the user requests for delivery of the requested one or more media files to a distribution server capable of servicing the user requests based upon at least the average network throughput;

General Summary of the Delivery Management System’s Satisfaction of Claim Element: The central directory server in the Kontiki Delivery Management System is a computing device configured to receive user requests for the delivery of media files in the media file database. Kontiki’s description of the Delivery Management System’s ability to use certain delivery technology, including “Adaptive Rate Computing” and “Adaptive Rate Multiserving,” suggests that the central directory server considers network throughput when servicing user’s request for delivery of media files.

Kontiki’s peer-assisted delivery technology system is comprised of central directory servers that manage all network interactions, grid delivery servers that provide distributed 24/7 access to all source content, and individual computers or “peers” running Kontiki’s delivery client.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/peer-assisted-content-delivery-technology.html (emphasis added)

The Kontiki Delivery Management System is centrally managed and controlled to support only authorized and sanctioned publishing activities.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/peer-assisted-content-delivery-technology.html

“Kontiki dynamically optimizes delivery from many PCs and media servers by caching content at the very edge of the network. As demand for content increases, Kontiki’s patented peer-assisted delivery technique becomes more efficient, in contrast to traditional content delivery methods that bog down during access spikes. This network efficiency means you can deliver more content, in higher quality formats using existing resources without stressing the network.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/peer-assisted-content-delivery-technology.html

Kontiki’s market-proven peer-assisted delivery technology rapidly delivers HD-quality content to consumer audiences with network-friendly scale, speed and efficiency.”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/peer-assisted-content-delivery-technology.html

With Network Manager, you can dynamically control delivery network use to maximize efficiency. The IT manager has the ability to enable or disable client and server caching or localize caching to subnets. For example, remote offices with limited bandwidth might use localized caching to minimize connections to the main office. Centralized network configuration enables administrators to control the behavior of clients and servers within the network in real-time.”

Peer-Assisted Content Delivery thru Bandwidth Harvesting

  • Adaptive Rate Computing

  • Outer Edge Caching

  • Time Shifting

  • Self Optimizing and Self Scaling

  • Leverages a network of under-utilized clients & servers”

http://www.kontiki.com/peer-assisted-video-delivery-technology/grid-delivery-technology.html (emphasis added)

Kontiki aggregates underutilized Internet capacity through Time Shifting (which smoothes historically spiky bandwidth consumption patterns), through efficient distribution of content by means of high-performance Adaptive Rate Multiserving (ARM), and by caching content at the outer edge of the network. The net effect is highly efficient and reliable content distribution network for digital media files such as video, software, audio and documents.”

and a distribution server coupled to the media file database, the distribution server configured to simultaneously deliver a single copy of the requested one or more of the media files identified in the routed user requests to the requesting users in less-than-real-time, wherein the distribution server automatically adjusts delivery of the requested one or more media files to the requesting users based on current average network throughput between the distribution server and the requesting users.

General Summary of the Delivery Management System’s Satisfaction of Claim Element: The central directory server in the Kontiki Delivery Management System is coupled to the central servers and end-user PCs in the peer-to-peer network. The publicly available information from Kontiki suggest that media files are delivered to requesting users in less-than-real-time as a result of the Delivery Management System’s ability to use certain delivery technology, including “Adaptive Rate Computing” and “Adaptive Rate Multiserving,” to evaluate network throughput when servicing user’s request for delivery of media files. A media distribution system’s ability to deliver files in less-than-real-time is generally a top priority in developing the architecture for a particular system.
