Whitepaper: Design Rules for Quantum Imaging Devices: Experimental Progress Using CMOS Single Photon Detectors

by International Society for Optical EngineeringJan 01, 2008

This white paper is an extension of the earlier introduced set of quantum-based design rules directed at quantum engineers who design single-photon quantum communications and quantum imaging devices. This paper reports on the progress toward the construction of quantitative design rules as well as some proposed tests for quantum imaging devices using entangled photon sources with the SPAD imager.


Whitepaper: Multistation Data Fusion for Code-Division Multiple Access Wireless Communications

by International Society for Optical EngineeringJan 01, 2008

Data fusion is the study of optimal information processing in distributed multisensor environments with the benefits of more reliable detection and higher immunity to noise and sensor failures. This paper published by International Society for Optical Engineering describes that data fusion is the study of optimal information processing in distributed multi-sensor environments with the benefits of more reliable detection and higher immunity to noise and sensor failures. Author investigates applications of the data fusion principle to the handoff problem in popular Code-Division Multiple Access (CDMA) cellular wireless communication networks.


Whitepaper: Intelligent Content Fitting for Digital Publishing

by International Society for Optical EngineeringJan 01, 2008

Variable Data Printing (VDP) provides a huge opportunity for digital publishing and printing business. In addition to creating new contents specifically for the targeted VDP application, one also has several other venues to obtaining the contents: from the past campaigns, on the Internet (with appropriate copyright treatment), or from third parties. However, one recurring problem is that the existing contents cannot satisfy the VDP task as-is. For example, the aspect ratio of an image cannot fit into the copy hole of a layout; too much customized text cannot fit into a text block.


Whitepaper: Extensible Layout in Functional Documents

by International Society for Optical EngineeringJan 01, 2008

The production of highly customized publications, such as personalized brochures, tuned marketing collateral and custom-branded templates, presents many interesting challenges within document engineering. The customization required can often involve incorporation into the publication of variable elements whose ’Size’ is not fixed, which can be used selectively in different document instances and where ’Layout’ could involve rather complex decisions. This paper describes an approach to defining and processing publication layout in a particular document engineering architecture, based around considering documents as functions of variable data and content.


Whitepaper: Automatic Color Scheme Picker for Document Templates Based on Image Analysis and Dual Problem

by International Society for Optical EngineeringJan 01, 2008

Color harmony sets guidelines on how to create effective color combinations. Many attempts have been made, through many historical periods, to create recipes for color harmony. It is, however, not possible to make a list of rules to describe the harmonious or disharmonious visual image. Complementary contrast, whatever the subject, is not a requirement for a harmonious color image. ""Ton-sur-ton"" or analogous color scheme (where all colors are related to one color hue in slightly different shades or tints) color use doesn’t guarantee harmony either. Only the human eye can judge the final artistic result.


Whitepaper: Active Document Versioning: From Layout Understanding to Adjustment

by International Society for Optical EngineeringJan 01, 2008

Through several innovations such as layout template and constraint extraction, linear text block modeling, two-pass constraint solving algorithm, the proposed Active Document Versioning system provides a robust and generic solution to relieve the bottleneck on the creation side of end-to-end automated publishing pipeline. It supports a rich set of layout adjustment operations in professional graphic designs, such as simultaneous optimization of text block width and height, integrated image cropping, and non-rectangular text wrapping. On the other hand, there are a number of promising future research topics on both layout understanding and adjustment.
