Method and Apparatus For Assigning Devices to a Media Service

A user interface is used to assign different devices and device types to media services where the number of different devices and device types that are capable of being assigned is deter­mined by access privilege information corresponding to such media services. When a number of devices of a specific type are assigned where such a number exceeds a limit specified in the access privilege information, the assignment of additional devices of that specific type is halted.

Some Notes

My recommendations are based on fundamental needs asked by the majority of clients. These recommendations are in no way meant to decide for you but hopefully will help steer our conversations so that you get the most value for your money.

The hours & costs provided are estimates. These factors are driven by the complexity of your business, the size of the organization and the resources available for any project. As we define your needs, the hours/costs can go up or down but my goal in any engagement is to save your business money and time.
