Publication number: 20190014090

Abstract: A system and method for providing load balanced secure media content and data delivery in a distributed computing environment is disclosed. Media content is segmented and encrypted into a set of individual encrypted segments on a centralized control center. Each individual encrypted segment has the same fixed size. The complete set of individual encrypted segments is staged to a plurality of intermediate control nodes. Individual encrypted segments are mirrored from the staged complete set to a plurality of intermediate servers. Requests are received from clients for the media content at the centralized control center. Each individual encrypted segment in the set is received from one of an intermediate control node and an intermediate server optimally sited from the requesting client. The individual encrypted segments are reassembled into the media content for media playback.

    Abstract: A system and method for providing information dispersal in a networked computing environment are described. A plurality of database servers is distributed throughout a networked computing environment. Each database server includes a database storing segments of information staged for retrieval upon user request. A user system uploads a message specifying an information request. The information request identifies a set of the information staged on the database servers for retrieval. A central controller is communicatively interfaced to the user system and each of the database servers and controls the database servers to disperse the information requested in the uploaded message.

  • Methods and apparatus for generating and processing synthetic and absolute real time environmentsPatent number: 5513130

    Abstract: A system for generating and processing synthetic and absolute real time remote environments for interaction with a user and her biological senses is comprised of seven modules. These modules store, retrieve and process data to generate an output which interfaces with the system user’s biological senses. These modules also track user data to accurately place the user in the generated and processed model. Various embodiments of the system user sensory interface are provided including visual and aural input devices and a three dimensional chamber having interactive tactile output via matrix-addressed, electromechanically operated rods driving a flexible skin.
