  • Publication number: 20160176114
    Abstract: A system for online monitoring powder-based 3D printing processes and method thereof are disclosed. A uniform light source having a single wavelength provided by the system is irradiated onto the powder layer before and after applied with glue. Intensities of such reflected images are obtained and subtracted from each other in an image process procedure. A difference obtained through the subtraction is compared with an original 3D model in a computer. If any defect is found such as being larger than a threshold value, the powder-based 3D printing processes will be terminated. Therefore, the technical effects of online printing processes monitoring, time saving and printing resources saving will be achieved.

  • Patent number: 9329745
    Abstract: Methods and systems for remotely editing a video file involve: receiving, at a server, a video editing command from a remote client; modifying, at the server, a virtual representation of a media file in accordance with the received command, the virtual representation including a reference to a source media file stored on a storage device, the storage device being connected to the server over a high-speed link; and generating and transmitting, from the server to the remote client, a proxy representation of the source media file modified by the editing commands, wherein the various regions of the proxy representation are rendered either in the background or in real-time according to their complexity. Rendered frames, whether generated in the background or in real time, are stored for reuse. Individual frames of the edited video file may be transmitted upon request from a client. Simultaneous editing of independent projects by multiple users connected to the server via multiple thin clients is supported.

  • Patent number: 9315420
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a preparation method for a UV-shielding material based on Mg—Al Layered Double Hydroxide. The material with multi-layered overlay structure is made from Mg—Al double hydroxide layers and interlayer carbonate, its molecular composition is: Mg1-xAlx(OH)2(CO3)x/2.mH2O. The inorganic layers of this material can play a physical shielding role against UV, and the metal elements dispersed on the layer as well as the interlayer anion can play a great role in the chemical absorbing. In addition, by controlling the particle size and the amount of the layers, UV light can be effectively shielded by multi-level reflection and absorption of the multi-level layered structure. Therefore, the material with multi-level chemical and physical shielding properties has a good UV barrier effect for the anti-ageing asphalt, and could significantly increase its UV resistance properties.

  • Patent number: 9318150
    Abstract: Video editing methods and systems enable an editor to edit a video project for which source media assets are located at a media storage server located remotely from the editor with substantially the same fidelity and editing feature set that would be available if the source media assets and editor were co-located. A video editing client used by the editor maintains a persistent cache of proxy media with the layers of the video project stored independently, facilitating editing with combinations locally originated assets and remote assets. The client requests frames not already cached from the remote server via a low bandwidth network. Unless a frame is purged from the cache, no frame is requested from the server more than once. A multi-level priority prefetching scheme, including sequence-based prefetching, populates the cache with frames likely to be requested during editing.
