Sony Cybercapture technology for hard disc drives


Ilse Jurriën : 2005-12-15 15:15:00
Sony Cybercapture technology for hard disc drives : Seagate today announced the first practical implementation of Cybercapture technology. Sony Corporation has employed this technology in its new Compactvault removable hard disc media drive that uses Seagate’s CompactFlash Photo Hard Drive, following a joint implementation effort between the two companies. Hard disc drives with Cybercapture technology maximize hard disc performance and enables faster shooting. By moving control of the file system from the CE device onto the hard disc drive itself, Cybercapture technology will allow an even higher recording rate of still pictures in multi-shot mode as well as higher quality recording of moving pictures, on a drive running in AV mode.


New Chip delivers better pictures for less power


Mark Peters : 2005-12-12 01:03:00
New Chip delivers better pictures for less power : The next advance in digital cameras is becoming a reality at the University of Rochester. Imaging chips revolutionized the photography industry, and now the chips themselves are being revolutionized. A pair of newly patented technologies may soon enable power-hungry imaging chips to use just a fraction of the energy used today and capture better images to boot - all while enabling digital cameras to shrink to the size of a shirt button and run for years on a single battery. Placed in a home, they could wirelessly provide images to a security company when an alarm is tripped, or even allow mapping software like Google's to zoom in to real-time images at street level.

Samsung develops largest flexible LCD panel


Mark Peters : 2005-11-28 09:19:54
Samsung Electronics develops largest flexible LCD panel : Samsung Electronics, announced today that it has developed the world’s largest transmissive TFT LCD (thin-film transistor, liquid crystal display), with sufficiently high resolution to display digital television content.The seven-inch, 640x480 (VGA-standard) flexible display uses a transparent plastic substrate that is thinner, lighter and more durable than the conventional LCD glass panels used today. Moreover, the full-color transmissive LCD panel maintains a constant thickness even when it is bent. Considered the next-generation in flat panel displays, this technology involves the use of pliable plastic instead of rigid glass substrates in TFT-LCD production.

The new NEC SOG module has been realized by the following: simultaneous pursuit of a wide color gamut and high luminance and downsizing through integration of peripheral circuitry. The new WVGA LCD model (SOG) from NEC will be displayed at FPD International 2005.


Canon iSAPS technology


Mark Peters : 2005-10-11 23:28:22
Canon iSAPS technology : Canon has collected a huge volume of photographic data and made extensive statistical analyses of the frequency of taking photographs. Based on this data, we created Photographic Space, a graphical database of information about the correlation between surrounding brightness and distance between camera and subject according to the focal length and zoom lens position when pictures are taken. Canon developed a scene-recognition technology called "iSAPS" (intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) Technology. Canon iSAPS Technology envisages the scene to be photographed and makes optimal adjustments of key functions, such as AF, AE and AWB, before the shutter is pressed.


Minox protection for digital photos introduced


Jasper Huitink : 2005-09-21 20:00:04
Minox protection for digital photos introduced : Carsten Chadt explains: “Well maintained traditional film material is known to last for at least a century or two and reproduction is easy." Loss of data can be caused by many different means. The storage medium ages, they may get damaged or deleted by accident or another thing and that is today’s standards may not be read by future hardware and software. Therefore, it should be common practice to regularly copy to the latest standard, but in practice this is becoming more and more complex as the number and size of the files grow. The answer is that pixel by pixel and colour by colour the digital photos will be transferred by cathode rays to conventional film material by a new machine.

Philips demonstrates intelligent displays


Jasper Huitink : 2005-09-06 14:00:00
Philips demonstrates intelligent displays : At the IFA 2005, Philips is demonstrating photonic textiles; fabrics that contain lighting systems and can therefore serve as displays. With the development of this new and unusual technology, Philips Research is pointing the way toward a new age in the long history of textiles. At first glance, objects such as clothing, towels, upholstery, and drapes would seem unlikely places on which to place intelligent and interactive systems. Yet these low-tech objects figure prominently in our lives. By integrating flexible arrays of multicolored light emitting diodes (LEDs) into fabrics, and doing so without compromising the softness of the cloth, Philips is bringing these objects to life.

HP Scalable printing technology


Dennis Hissink : 2005-07-30 16:30:10
HP Scalable printing technology : Scalable printing technology (SPT) is HP's new entry into the printing and imaging market. It's a whole new thermal inkjet technology that's been developed from the silicon on up. Scalable printing technology puts all of the printhead technologies onto the printhead itself. There are 3900 nozzles on the printhead...each one printing and blazing away to give HP customers speed and quality. And, HP makes the entire printhead themselves in their own silicon wafer fab. The most notable benefits of scalable printing technology are speed and image quality. This technology is about four times faster than HP's previous technology, allowing customers to print a 4 x 6 photo in about 14 seconds.


Sharp dual function LCD development


Dennis Hissink : 2005-07-27 13:10:26
Sharp dual function LCD development : Sharp Corporation and Sharp Laboratories of Europe, Ltd. have developed a new LCD, which can simultaneously display different information and image content in right and left views in a single unit by directionally controlling the viewing angle of the LCD. This feature makes it possible to provide information and content tailored to specific users depending on the angle at which they view the screen. Volume production of the LCD will begin in July 2005. Increasingly wider viewing angles in LCDs have made possible clear, highly readable displays without loss of image quality no matter what direction the display is viewed from, and mean that several users can view an LCD simultaneously.
