  • Biometric access control for digital media streams in home networks 

    Corcoran, Peter; Iancu, Claudia; Callaly, Frank; Cucos, Alexandru (IEEE, 2007)
    Methods for controlling access to digital media content in the home environment using biometric sensing techniques are described. A wireless rebroadcast system for IP-TV content was retrofitted with a combination of ...
  • Determining Unique Fingerprint Features for Biometric Encoding of Data 

    Cucu, Catalin; Cucos, Alex; Corcoran, Peter (2008)
    A novel approach to determining unique fingerprint features with high repeatibility is described. The techniques described are particularly suitable for CE applications and devices employing inexpensive capacitative ...
  • Fast A/V channel switching on a wireless home network 

    Corcoran, Peter; Callaly, Frank (IEEE, 2005-11-21)
    A method of enabling fast switching between multimedia streams on an 802.11g network is described. This technique is particularly useful for A/V home network applications where it is desirable to simulate the fast channel ...
  • Home networking middleware infrastructure for improved audio/video appliance functionality and interoperability 

    Corcoran, Peter; Cucos, Alex; Callaly, Frank (IEEE, 2006-05-15)
    A software architecture is described which significantly improves the accessability of multiple home appliances on a heterogeneous home network. Methods for aggregating devices into virtual clusters on a local middleware ...
  • Rapid prototyping of networked A/V CE appliances 

    Corcoran, Peter; Callaly, Frank (IEEE, 2006-05-15)
    In this paper the design and rapid prototyping of networked A/V CE appliances is described. Practical implementations of three types of appliance are described: (i) a streaming A/V server; (ii) a streaming A/V client device ...
