"We are excited to be offering this IP package of digital content tools to our global base of buyers. This fundamental portfolio is highly relevant to companies involved in streaming media or online digital content providers," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

This portfolio discloses techniques for streaming data directly to a virtual machine. In all industries and services where data is streamed to devices, users require the ability to access and analyze data from remote systems or the cloud. Most businesses and organizations prefer a remote server or cloud-based server because it maximizes how hard disk storage space is utilized, and allows a firm to download a file once and share with all authorized users.

The IP package for sale includes improvements related to the control and manipulation of data, as well as the ability to manipulate and alter images as this data is stored remotely in a cloud-based server. Encoded data is sent to a user's computer for decoding inside a virtual machine to enable secured data transmission. Further, the user may also interact with or modify the data inside the virtual machine without downloading or saving the data. This is the current method of video streaming used by web-based media providers. These techniques are now being used by most media providers to provide content such as audio, video, and images to users in a fast and secured manner. 

The portfolio has a wide-range of applications – streamed media and data business, cell phone network providers, mobile device manufacturers, television broadcasters, government agencies, medical networks, and any systems for electronic medical records being planned and implemented on a national level.
