Steven A Gabriel, Kent E Griffin: Method and system for texture mapping images with anisotropic filtering. Microsoft Corporation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, December 21, 1999: US06005582 (212 worldwide citation)

A method for texture mapping an image includes passing an interpolating filter along a line of anisotropy in a texture map and computing a weighted sum of the outputs of the interpolating filter to compute pixel intensity values. The weighting of these output values can be computed using a one dimen ...

Joseph W Chauvin, Steven A Gabriel, Howard Good, Kent E Griffin, Mark L Kenworthy, William Chambers Powell III, George Easton Scott III, Michael A Toelle, John G Torborg Jr, James E Veres: Graphics rendering device and method for operating same. Microsoft Corporation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, March 23, 1999: US05886701 (132 worldwide citation)

A graphics rendering chip serially renders a stream of geometric primitives to image regions called chunks. A set-up processor in the chip parses rendering commands and the stream of geometric primitives and computes edge equation parameters. A scan-convert processor receives the edge equation param ...

Joseph W Chauvin, Steven A Gabriel, Howard Good, Kent E Griffin, William Chambers Powell III, George Easton Scott III, Michael A Toelle, John G Torborg Jr, James E Veres: Processor for controlling the display of rendered image layers and method for controlling same. Microsoft Corporation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, December 28, 1999: US06008820 (102 worldwide citation)

A gsprite engine circuit reads a display list identifying gsprite image layers to be composited for display, retrieves gsprite image data from an external memory, and transforms the gsprite data to display device coordinates. The gsprite image layers represent independently rendered graphical object ...

Kent E Griffin: Method and system for merging pixel fragments in a graphics rendering system. Microsoft Corporation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, November 23, 1999: US05990904 (92 worldwide citation)

A method for merging pixel fragments to reduce memory usage in a graphics rendering system. In rendering a graphics scene, geometric primitives of objects in the scene are rasterized to create pixel data including pixel fragments representing partially covered pixels. Lists of pixel fragments having ...

Kent E Griffin, Mark L Kenworthy, James E Veres, Joseph W Chauvin, Michael A Toelle, Howard Good: Method and system for accessing texture data in environments with high latency in a graphics rendering system. Microsoft Corporation, Klarquist Sparkman Campbell Leigh & Whinston, March 9, 1999: US05880737 (58 worldwide citation)

A system for accessing texture data in a graphics rendering system allows texture data to be stored in memories with high latency or in a compressed format. The system utilizes a texture cache to temporarily store blocks of texture data retrieved from an external memory during rendering operations. ...

Carey S Nachenberg, Kent E Griffin: Reducing malware signature set size through server-side processing. Symantec Corporation, Fenwick & West, August 7, 2012: US08239944 (50 worldwide citation)

A server provides a reduced set of malware signatures to clients. The reduced set of malware signatures has the same scope of coverage as a comprehensive set of malware signatures stored on the server, but with a higher rate of false positive detections. The server receives signature detection event ...

Carey S Nachenberg, Kent E Griffin: Hygiene-based computer security. Symantec Corporation, Fenwick & West, November 13, 2012: US08312536 (13 worldwide citation)

A reputation server is coupled to multiple clients via a network. Each client has a security module that detect malware at the client. The security module computes a hygiene score based on detected malware and provides it to the reputation server. The security module monitors client encounters with ...

Carey S Nachenberg, Kent E Griffin: Reputation based identification of false positive malware detections. Symantec Corporation, Fenwick & West, November 13, 2012: US08312537 (8 worldwide citation)

A signature is identified in association with an entity at a client. A reputation score associated with the entity is identified, the reputation score indicating a likelihood that the entity will compromise the client. Whether the signature detection event is a false positive signature detection eve ...
