  • Patent number: 10336125
    Abstract: A laminated core stock sheet for use in a composite laminate assembly configured for being separated into plural individual cards is provided. The laminated core stock sheet includes a core substrate layer and an intermediate filmic layer coupled to the core substrate layer. The intermediate filmic layer includes plural conductive bodies spaced apart from each other that provide at least one of a security feature, a decorative feature, or other functional feature of the individual cards. The core substrate layer and the intermediate filmic layer are configured to be coupled with another laminated core stock sheet that may or may not include the intermediate filmic layer to form the composite laminate assembly configured for being separated into the individual cards.

  • Publication number: 20190139375
    Abstract: Method, computer program product, and system to facilitate an audit of a checkout transaction, where the checkout transaction is associated with a virtual transaction record reflecting interactions of a person with a first set of one or more items of a plurality of items within an environment. The method includes acquiring image information including a shopping receptacle associated with the checkout transaction, and identifying a second set of one or more items of the plurality of items that are included in the shopping receptacle using the acquired image information. The method further includes comparing the first and second sets of items, and determining, based on the comparison, whether to perform an audit of the checkout transaction.

  • Patent number: 7310423
    Abstract: A single decryption engine is used for decrypting a plurality of encrypted transport streams. Packets in each of the plurality of encrypted transport streams are tagged with a tag value to indicate their origin stream. The tagged packets from the plurality of encrypted transport streams are merged into a merged transport stream. The packets in the merged transport stream are decrypted with the decryption engine to produce a decrypted merged transport stream. The decrypted merged transport stream is split into a plurality of decrypted transport streams, equal in number to the plurality of encrypted transport streams, by routing packets in the decrypted merged transport stream to specific decrypted transport streams according to their tag value. A null-packet padding technique, a gapped-clock technique and a multi-port static RAM controller technique are disclosed.
