  • Publication number: 20170214821
    Abstract: A method of embedding data in a printed output having at least two-dimensions is described in which content data for the printed output and data to be embedded in the printed output are obtained. An input property value for a content element from the content data is determined. This is used to determine an output value for a probabilistic distribution of a set of output material compositions for a spatial element of the printed output, corresponding to the content element, based on the data to be embedded and the input property value.

    Abstract: Examples relate to communication of event-based content. The examples disclosed herein enable obtaining, by a first server computing device, a first event that is generated by a second server computing device based on a first request from a first user. The first event may comprise a first set of contextual attributes that describe the first event. The examples disclosed herein further enable identifying, by the first server computing device, a first set of content categories that are related to the first event and obtaining, by the first server computing device, first content for at least one of the first set of content categories. The first content may be determined based on at least one of the first set of contextual attributes. The examples disclosed herein further enable providing, by the first server computing device, the first content to a client computing device of the first user.

  • Publication number: 20170203591
    Abstract: A method in a printer comprising a first printhead to dispense a first printing fluid and a second printhead to dispense a second printing fluid, the first and second printheads being arranged on a common scan axis that is substantially perpendicular to a media advance direction. The method comprises controlling movement of the first and second printheads relative to a media being printed, between a first index position and a second index position, the second index position being downstream of the first index position, and wherein the movement occurs during a time period between a forward scan and a reverse scan of the first and second printheads across a media being printed.

  • Patent number: 9710124
    Abstract: An example method includes determining a region of interest of an interactive display. The method also includes determining a time since utilization of a user interface element exceeds a threshold. The method includes determining timing information for content in a region of the interactive display other than the region of interest, determining the content is stale based on the timing information exceeding a threshold, and removing the content from the interactive display based on the content being stale. The method includes automatically moving the user interface element progressively over a period of time from an initial location to the region other than the region of interest. The method further includes providing another user interface element capable of selecting a previous time since utilization, receiving input selecting the previous time since utilization, and moving the user interface element to a historic location associated with the previous time since utilization.

  • Patent number: 9710737
    Abstract: In one example of the disclosure, a first area of an image to be printed at a first gloss level is identified. A second area of the image to be printed at a lesser second gloss level is identified. Printing of the image is caused in a gloss-varying printmode that applies a pretreatment fluid to a media where the second area is to be printed, and not where the first area is to be printed, and applies a colorant or colorants to the media where the first and second areas are to be printed.
