A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11895352B2) discloses a system and method for managing media streams over an IP network. The system involves a first device that processes a received media stream based on instructions from a control signal, generates a transformed media stream, and transmits it to a second device. A controller synchronized with the devices generates control signals for each device, ensuring simultaneous reception with the media stream. The controller also accounts for processing delays, network delays, and control delays to optimize the transmission timing for efficient stream management.

Furthermore, the method outlined in the patent involves the controller generating control signals for the devices, causing them to process and transmit media streams in a synchronized manner. The controller determines transmission times based on processing delays specific to each device, ensuring efficient stream management over the IP network. Additionally, the control signals are designed to facilitate the transformation of media streams into multiple portions, enhancing the overall streaming experience. By considering network delays and control delays, the system and method aim to streamline the management of media streams, providing a seamless and synchronized streaming experience for users across devices connected to the IP network.
