InterDigital Patent Holdings Develops Power-Aware Video Streaming System for Better Battery Efficiency

We live in an age of convenience, and the advances in technology have enabled a plethora of devices to be available in the palm of our hand. With mobile phones becoming increasingly powerful, people are able to do more in less time. This has led to an increased demand for faster and more efficient mobile applications. InterDigital Patent Holdings, a leading provider of intellectual property and technology solutions, has come up with a system that could revolutionize the way we use our phones. The company recently patented a power-aware video streaming system that can adjust the complexity of the video depending on the battery power of the device. It is also capable of adapting the bitrate to meet the needs of different use cases. This system has been designed to help users conserve their phone's battery life by reducing the amount of power used when streaming video. It works by first analyzing the battery power of the device and then determining the optimal video quality settings for the user. This system will then adjust the video's complexity and bitrate to match the user's battery power. This way, users can enjoy a seamless video streaming experience without worrying about draining their phone's battery. The patent also details the use of a set of rules that can be implemented to determine the optimal video quality settings. These rules take into account the device's battery power, the user's preferences, the video's content, and the network connection. This system is designed to be dynamic and can be adjusted to suit the user's needs. In addition, this system can also be used to optimize the video streaming experience for different use cases. For example, it can be used to reduce the video's complexity when streaming on a slow network connection. It can also be used to increase the video's complexity for high-end devices with more powerful batteries. This advanced system has the potential to revolutionize the way we use our phones. Not only will it help us conserve battery power, but it will also provide us with a better video streaming experience. It is not yet known whether this patent will become a reality or not. However, this is a promising development from InterDigital Patent Holdings. The company has used its expertise in intellectual property and technology solutions to develop this power-aware video streaming system. It is likely that we will see more of their innovations in the near future. InterDigital Patent Holdings' power-aware video streaming system might just be the next big thing in mobile technology. It could revolutionize the way we use our phones and provide us with a better streaming experience. It is still uncertain whether this patent will come to fruition or not, but it is a promising development from the company. Patent Number: US11695991B2
