  • Patent number: 10764471
    Abstract: In a color to grayscale image conversion particularly method suitable for processing color document images such as forms, the color image is analyzed to determined which of the red, green and blue channels are the most dominant, second most dominant, and least dominant channels, based on the amount of information contained in each channel. Then, coefficients are assigned to the three channels, where the coefficient for the most dominant channel is smaller than the coefficient for the second most dominant color channel, which is in turn smaller than the coefficient for the least dominant color channel. The grayscale pixel value is then calculated using a linear combination of the red, green and blue pixel values weighted by their assigned coefficients. In one example, the ratio of the coefficients for the least dominant, the second most dominant and the most dominant channels is 10:3:1.

  • Patent number: 9971784
    Abstract: A method and system for reducing storage requirements and speeding up storage operations by reducing the storage of redundant data includes receiving a request that identifies one or more files or data objects to which to apply a storage operation. For each file or data object, the storage system determines if the file or data object contains data that matches another file or data object to which the storage operation was previously applied, based on awareness of the application that created the data object. If the data objects do not match, then the storage system performs the storage operation in a usual manner. However, if the data objects do match, then the storage system may avoid performing the storage operation with respect to the particular file or data object.
