APBU-00000647 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-8 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 17 of 25 REMARKS Reconsideration of the' Application, as amended by the present communication, is hereby respectfully requested. Claims 27-41/43-68! 70-113,115-129 and 131-194 were originally presented for examination in the Application.In the Office Action dated 11/25/97, the .foregoing claims were rejected under 35 U.S.C. 103(a). Responsive to the Office Action, all of the original claims have been cancelled, and new claims 195-218 have been added. It is submitted that the new claims more clearly describe the invention and distinguish the same over the prior art of record. Before turning to the specific rejections, a discussion of the general nature of the invention may be helpful to provide a context for analysis of the claims. The present invention teaches a system and method for transmitting audio/video source information, namely full motion video programs, between devices. The audio/video information is time compressed to thereby allow transmission in a burst transmission time period which is substantially shorter . than the time associated with real-time viewing of the video program by a receiver of the program. For example, a video program having an associated viewing time (i.e., running length) of one hour could be time compressed and transmitted to a receiver in a burst transmission time period which is substantially less than one hour. The burst transmission technique employed by the invention offers significant advantages over prior art audio/video information delivery systems -11- APBU-00000648 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-8 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 18 of 25 and methods. One illustrative example involves video library systems (also known as video-on-demand systems), wherein a video program selected from a collection of multiple programs is delivered to a client in response to a request therefrom. In a conventional video library system, each (uncompressed)video program is delivered to the requesting client on a substantially real time basis, i.e., the transmission period is equal to the time associated with viewing of the program by the receiver. By using the burst transmission system and method of the present invention, the transmission throughput (ie., the rate at which audio/video information can be delivered to the system clients given a certain amount of bandwidth) is increased, enabling servicing of a larger number,of clients. Furthermore, the system's clients can be serviced faster and more efficiently than by a conventional system. Utilization of the technique embodied by the invention also lends enhanced functionality to.the video library system, such as the ability to selectively "pause"or "rewind"the video program. Rejections Under 35 U.S.C. 6103(a) Claims 27-41,43-68,70-113,115-129, and 131-194 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C. 103(a) as being unpatentable over Izeki et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 4,974,178) in view of Hamilton et al. (U.S. Pat. No. 4,897,717). The Applicant respectfully traverses the Examiner's rejection as applied to new claims 195-218. Izeki et al. teaches a system for editing information including pictures, sounds, and characters. The information is received through input units (43,45) -12- APBU-00000649 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-8 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 19 of 25 I , and is preferably converted into a prescribed format by converting unit (46). The converted information, held in first storage means 53, is then edited by editing unit 47, and the edited information is stored in second storage means. The edited information can then be conveyed via an interface to a storage device such as magnetic tape. It is to be appreciated that the Izeki et al. device does not provide for burst transmission of video programs over a communications channel; rather, it is intended to facilitate production of a master tape comprising picture and sound information. Hamilton et al. teaches a digital compression technique utilizing a discrete sine transform, segmentation and predictive analysis to avoid compression losses and thereby improve the quality of reconstructed images. Hamilton et al. does not teach or suggest any specific implementation of the compression technique described therein. All of the claims in the present Application recite structures or steps wherein audio/video information representative of a video program is stored in digital time-compressed form, and the digital timecompressed audio/video information is then transmitted in a burst transmission time period substantially shorter than the time associated with real-time viewing of the audio/video information by a viewer. For example, independent claim 195 recites an audio/video transceiver comprising, inter alia: compression means, coupled to said input means, for compressing said audio/video source information into a digital time compressed representation thereof, wherein said digital time compressed representation of said audio/video source information - 13 - APBU-00000650 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-8 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 20 of 25 is capable of being transmitted in a burst transmission time period that is substantially shorter than a time period associated with real time viewing by a receiver of said audio/video source information; [andl transmission means, coupled to said storage means, for. transmitting said digital time compressed representation of said audio/video source information away from said audio/video transceiver apparatus in said burst transmission time period. Similarly, claim 206 recites a method for handling audio/video information, the method including the steps of, inter alia: compressing the received audio/video source information into a digital time cdmpressed representation thereof, the digital time compressed representation of said audio/video source information having an associated burst transmission time period that is substantially shorter than a time period associated with real' time viewing by a receiver of said audio/video source information; [andl transmitting, in said burst transmission time period, the stored digital time compressed representation of said audio/video source information to a selected destination. The time-compression/burst transmission feature recited in the claims of the present Application is neither disclosed nor suggested by Izeki et al., Hamilton et al., or any of the other references of record, either taken individually or in combination. In rejecting the originally presented claims under $103, the Examiner states "it would be obvious to one of ordinary skill in the art to employ means for time-compressing audio/video information as an alternative compressing device for the compressing means of Izeki et al. in order to increase the transmission speed of the audio/video information as well as to increase the capacity of storing the audio/video information of the storage means." Applicant traverses the Examiner's assertion. It is an axiom of patent law that obviousness - 14 - APBU-00000651 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-8 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 21 of 25 cannot be established by combining the teaching of the prior art to produce the claimed invention, absent some teaching or suggestion supporting the combination. ACS HosDital Svstems, Inc. v. Montefiore Hospital, 221 U.S.P.Q. 929,932,933 (Fed. Cir. 1984). As discussed hereinabove, Izeki et al. is directed to a very different problem than is the claimed invention. Namely, the Izeki et al. device is intended to be used for editing picture, sound and character information to produce a recording medium, whereas the system and method of the present invention enables burst transmission of full motion video programs. The "output means" (80) of Izeki et al. simply comprises an interface for transferring edited files to a master tape (see column 6, lines 61-65); it is not analogous to the transmission means or transmission step of the claimed invention. Furthermore, although Izeki et al. makes reference to processing "video information",it is apparent, based on a fair reading of thk specification, that this "video information"represents still-picture information in video form (see column 2, lines 37-42). This is in sharp contrast to the claimed invention, wherein full motion video programs, having an inherent temporal element, are time compressed and transmitted. Applicant respectfulIy submits that there is no motivation to combine the editing apparatus of Izeki et al. with the compression technique disclosed in Hamilton et al. Izeki et al. is simply not concerned with transmitting audio/video information away from the apparatus to one or more receivers. Furthermore, since Izeki deals with still picture information, compression of the - 15 - APBU-00000652 Case 3:06-cv-00019-MHP Document 79-8 Filed 12/09/2006 Page 22 of 25 ,I , ,, ,,i I 1. information would still not represent time compression thereof (as defined in the specification of the Application),since time compression necessarily requires that the information to be compressed have a temporal dimension. Because all of the claims now pending in the application recite features neither taught nor suggested by the prior art references, Applicant submits that these claims are allowable, and such action is earnestly solicited. If the Examiner has questions regarding this case, he is invited to telephone the Applicant's undersigned representative at the number given below.
