  • Patent number: 10506147
    Abstract: In various embodiments, an imaging system and method are provided. In an embodiment, the system comprises a first image sensor array, a first optical system to project a first image on the first image sensor array, the first optical system having a first zoom level. A second optical system is to project a second image on a second image sensor array, the second optical system having a second zoom level. The second image sensor array and the second optical system are pointed in the same direction as the first image sensor array and the first optical system. The second zoom level is greater than the first zoom level such that the second image projected onto the second image sensor array is a zoomed-in portion of the first image projected on the first image sensor array.

  • Publication number: 20190252079
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided to provide guidance to a user regarding management of a physiologic condition such as diabetes. The determination may be based upon a patient glucose concentration data sensed by a glucose concentration sensor. A host state change associated with the host glucose concentration data may be determined. A guidance message based at least in part on the host state change may also be determined. The guidance message may be delivered through a user interface.

  • Patent number: 7577295
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for processing a document. The method comprises: marking an area of a document, using at least one predetermined markup symbol; identifying a markup symbol; using the identified markup symbol to locate the document area; determining characters in the document area; and, processing the determined characters. Fields that can be processed include title, keywords, author, signature, document name, category, subject, or document status, to name but a few examples. In some aspects, marking an area of a document, using at least one predetermined markup symbol includes: electronically marking using a medium such as a touchscreen, pressure pad, or a mouse. Alternately, the paper document can be physically marked (with a pen or pencil) before scanning. Typically, marking an area of a document includes forming a markup character proximate to an enclosing figure. A wide range of markup characters can be defined cross-referenced to document processes.

  • Patent number: 7509341
    Abstract: A stateless-object method is provided for executing instructions. The method: establishes a central repository of states, cross-referencing state locations in memory, to identifiers; calls a first method; accesses a stateless-object in response to the first method, the stateless-object including an identifier and a second method; reads the identifier; uses the identifier to cross-reference the stateless-object's state location in the repository; accesses the located state; and, instantiates the second method in response to accessing the state. The central repository of states may cross-reference a first state to a first identifier, and the step of accessing the stateless-object includes accessing a plurality of stateless-objects in response to the first method, with each of the stateless-objects including the first identifier.

  • Patent number: 7185074
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a network in which a potential user may be notified of the presence of at least one intelligent peripheral device and, upon the potential user's request, his workstation may be configured to use the selected intelligent peripheral device. The present invention is also directed to an installation method for notifying at least one potential user of the availability of at least one intelligent peripheral device and, if requested, configuring potential users' workstations to use the requested intelligent peripheral device. In one preferred embodiment, the method includes the steps of sending an announcement to at least one potential user, receiving a response to the announcement from the potential user, and configuring the potential user's workstation to use the intelligent peripheral device.

  • Patent number: 7154622
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for flexible control of the routing and processing of documents by a document receiver. Document classifications are defined by a receiver and stored on a registration server together with an associated document processing profile (“DPP”). The receiver communicates to a sender how to access his account on the registration server. The sender views the receiver's document classifications, selects one, and prints a cover page, which includes a document classification identifier. The sender scans the cover page and a source document with a digital scanner and transceiver. The document is sent to recipients and transformed according to the DPP.

  • Patent number: 6940683
    Abstract: Disclosed are a system, a method, and article of manufacture to provide for filtering a servo signal in a tape drive using a matched filter that is optimized for the operating tape velocity of the tape drive. A servo controller for track following on a tape uses a digital filter implementation of the matched filter to produce a filtered servo signal. The digital filter is optimized for different tape velocities by selecting digital filter coefficients for the digital filter that depend upon the tape velocity presently in use. The filtered servo signal is used by the servo controller to provide improved track following in a tape drive.

  • Publication number: 20050080844
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for an imaging device to manage scan destination profiles in a network of connected devices. The method comprises: accepting a profile at an imaging device. The profile may contain a network-connected destination, protocol instructions, and/or instructions to be performed at the destination. The method: temporarily stores the accepted profile; performs a scanning job; and, sends the scanned job to the profile destination. The profiles can be accepted from a storage device source such as a wireless telephone, PDA, or a smart card. In another aspect of the method, accepting a profile includes: establishing a wireless communication link between a proximity badge and a badge detector connected to the imaging device; identifying a user associated with the detected badge; accessing a network-connected server memory with profiles cross-referenced to user identities; and, downloading a profile from the server associated with the identified user.
