    Abstract: Examples of a method and a system for configuring an imaging system are described. These examples involve obtaining a random sample of area coverage representations and grouping these by an estimated color, such as a colorimetric value. In each group a selected area coverage representation is determined with respect to one or more imaging attributes. A color gamut based on the random sample and the selected area coverage representations are used to generate a color mapping from an input color space to an area coverage representation space for use by the imaging system.

  • Patent number: 9809022
    Abstract: A drying assembly is disclosed. An example apparatus includes fans; a temperature sensor; a print engine to access instructions to cause a printer to perform a printing operation on media; and a processor responsive to an output of the temperature sensor to control the fans to force air onto the media to cause a substantially uniform temperature to be maintained across a width of the media during the printing operation and to cause a sum of air flow output by the fans to be maintained at a substantially constant value.

  • Patent number: 9811522
    Abstract: System and method for conversion of virtual machine files without requiring copying of the virtual machine payload (data) from one location to another location. By eliminating this step, applicant's invention significantly enhances the efficiency of the conversion process. In one embodiment, a file system or storage system provides indirections to locations of data elements stored on a persistent storage media. A source virtual machine file includes hypervisor metadata (HM) data elements in one hypervisor file format, and virtual machine payload (VMP) data elements.

  • Patent number: 9812500
    Abstract: A circuit component that exhibits a region of negative differential resistance includes: a first layer of material; and a second layer of material in contact with the first layer of material, the contact forming a first self-heating interface. The first self-heating interface is structured such that an electrical current flowing from the first layer of material to the second layer of material encounters an electrical impedance occurring at the first interface that is greater than any electrical impedance occurring in the first and second layers of material, wherein heating occurring at the first interface is dominated by Joule heating caused by the electrical impedance occurring at the first interface, and wherein the electrical impedance occurring at the first interface decreases with increasing temperature to induce a region of negative differential resistance.

  • Patent number: 9811037
    Abstract: In some examples, a device authenticates a first consumable product installed in the device, sends a first identifier of the authenticated first consumable product over a network to an engine, receives, over the network from the engine, a list of identifiers for consumable products classified as non-authentic, and in response to installation of a second consumable product in the device that stores an identifier in memory, determines whether the identifier of the second consumable product matches one of the identifiers in the received list of identifiers.

  • Patent number: 9812197
    Abstract: One example provides a device including a first transistor having a source-drain path electrically coupled between a first node and a second node. The device includes an operational amplifier having an output electrically coupled to a gate of the first transistor. The operational amplifier controls the first transistor to maintain a predetermined voltage on the first node. A first current source adds a current at the first node and a second current source subtracts the current at the second node.

  • Patent number: 9812169
    Abstract: The present invention provides a novel operational system and electronic architectural model for organizing and improving viewing and editing of time-based video media and for overcoming the detriments required by the previous film and video industry based editing technologies. The present system enables an operator to manipulate the visual and audio perception of underlying video and audio data without changing the same. A series of metadata modules enable real-time operation and editing of video data and control of a play back module as well as an improved sharing, viewing, searching, and showing of underlying video and audio data.

  • Patent number: 9813328
    Abstract: Selected ones of multiple groups of network entities are assigned to corresponding routing structures, where each of the routing structures defines a set of paths through a network among network entities of a corresponding one of the groups. The assigning considers available multicast resources in communication nodes in the network, and a criterion relating to reducing overall cost in the assignment of the selected groups to the corresponding routing structures.
