Bradium Technologies LLC owns three U.S. Patents that cover the optimization of image delivery of limited bandwith communications channels:
- U.S. Patent No. 7,139,794 “System and Method for Network Image Delivery with Dynamic Viewing Frustrum Optimized for Limited Bandwidth Communication Channels”
- U.S. Patent No. 7,644,131: “Optimized Image Delivery Over Limited Bandwidth Communication Channels”
- U.S. Patent No. 7,908,343 “Optimized Image Delivery Over Limited Bandwidth Communication Channels”
The technology covered by this portfolio is related to network-based image distribution systems and, in particular, to systems and methods for efficiently selecting and distributing image parcels through narrowband or limited bandwidth communications channels in support of the presentation of high-resolution images subject to dynamic viewing frustrums (points of interest).
The inventors of these patents were the first to architect a system to allow bandwidth-efficient viewing of large images, such as maps or satellite images, on bandwidth limited devices, such as cellphones. The inventors were the first to combine multi-resolution tiling, caching, and priority based retrieval to create this system.
The application of this technology is to view mapping software and online mapping services on cell phones, smartphones, PDAs and other devices, allowing users to locate distinct geographic landmarks. Bradium Technologies was established to further develop this technology, expand its uses and applications, and, ultimately, commercialize and monetize this patent portfolio.
Bradium Technologies LLC is a subsidiary of General Patent Corporation, a leading patent monetization firm, that is Bradium’s managing partner and exclusive licensing agent.
