Apple patent is for remote slide presentation


An Apple patent (number 8195768) for remote slide presentation has appeared at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Techniques for remotely viewing a presentation are disclosed.

In accordance with these techniques, a host device executing a presentation application makes a presentation available over a network. In one embodiment, a remote device receives presentation data corresponding to a currently displayed slide of the presentation. The remote device may then display a representation of the currently displayed slide at the remote location.

Here's Apple's background and summary on the invention: "The present disclosure generally relates to techniques for making a presentation available for remote viewing. For example, the presentation may be made available via a conventional web browser or other application capable of accessing the presentation contents over a network. In one embodiment, a presentation application on a network may include a web server.

"When a presentation is made using the presentation application, a remote computer running a viewing application, such as a web browser, may communicate with the web server to receive the presentation as it is presented. In one embodiment, static images of each slide and build or step of a slide are transmitted to remote viewers concurrently with the local presentation of the slides and slide builds at the site of the presentation application.

"In such an embodiment, the static images may exclude animations, video, and audio that might be displayed on at the local site of the presentation application. In addition, in certain embodiments, the images transmitted for remote viewing may be scaled or sized based on various considerations, such as network load or bandwidth, the type of receiving application or device, and so forth.

The following Apple patents also appeared at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office today.

Patent number 8195141 is for remote control of electronic devices. A controlling device (e.g., a telephony device) can remotely control various tasks associated with a controlled device (e.g., a personal computer), including the navigation of user interfaces associated with applications or an operating system associated with the controlled device. The inventors are John O. Louch, Eric Taylor Seymour and Michael Shebanek.

Patent number 8192234 involves an audio connector control system. Per the patent, an electronic device such as a portable music player, cellular telephone, or computer may be provided with an audio jack system that allows audio plug position measurements to be made. The inventors are Michael B. Wittenberg, Scott Myers and Parin Patel.

Patent number 8194410 is for a printed circuit board sensor mounting and alignment. The inventors are Derek J. DiCarolo Vu T. Vo and Gregory A. Fosnes.
