The Sarnoff Corporation patent solves the following problem:

A major obstacle to the development and deployment of distributed channels for motion imagery content (eg, video download, digital film) are the care providers for their copyrighted materials may be copied and order distribute without proper authority. Encryption is an important part of a Digital Rights Management (DRM) scheme to control access to content. However, once given access, the decrypted content left unprotected. Thus, encryption alone can not prevent all instances of theft. Continued access methods that rely on proprietary file format, and the use of compliant devices have been proposed, but in the end all that in the video must be converted into pixel brightness and color for display. At this point, video is weak.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Sarnoff Corporation’s patent US 6885757 B2 deals with Method and apparatus for providing an asymmetric watermark carrier.
A low-frequency, temporally asymmetric watermark carrier decreases in luminance in a substantially monotonic way more slowly than it increases the luminance in a substantially monotonic way. This allows the carrier to be embedded, for example, a video work, in a way that renders the resulting watermark almost invisible to the human eye. Moreover, the consequences of the watermark is substantially resistant to common techniques pirating of high-frequency visual content (eg, including the watermark data) tends to be strained by piracy processing.

The The Ohio State University Research Foundation patent solves the following problem:

Seed vigor testing is a way to evaluate the quality of a seed lot based on visually quantifiable cues, such as the speed and uniformity of seedling growth. Various specifications for strength testing seeds available, including the Association of Official Seed Analysts Forces Trials Handbook (1983) and International Seed Testing Association Seed Vigour Test Handbook (1987).

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

The Ohio State University Research Foundation’s patent US 6882740 B1 deals with System and method for determining a seed vigor index from germinated seedlings by automatic separation of overlapped seedlings.
A system and method for automatically determining a seed strength index for a lot of seeds by examining a scanned image of a plurality of seedlings grown from many seeds, including automatic separating and analyzing semen. According to one aspect of the present invention, seedling analysis software used for analyzing an image of the seedlings. The seedling analysis software better analyzes both hypocotyl and radicle length and thus determines the separation point between the two for each seedling. The seedling analysis software also preferably separated seedlings, preferably using a simulated annealing technique. According to another aspect of the present invention, a low-cost scanner placed in an inverted configuration of a scanner used to create high-quality, reproducible images of seedlings. According to yet another aspect of the present invention, a method of using the ordinary germination boxes, ie, sandwich boxes used to grow seedlings that greatly facilitate computer-based analysis. In general, this method involves placing germination blotter paper on the cover in a sandwich box and growing seedlings in the sandwich box in a nearly vertical (upright) position in a darkened germination extent. The resulting seedlings hypocotyls essentially grow upward and grow radicles essentially low, which greatly facilitates image acquisition of the seedling, for example, to reverse the scanner.

Wire-stranded medical hollow tube, and a medical guide wire

You’ve invested time, talent, and energy into making a dent in the universe with your invention and ideas. Now it’s time for Utility, Provisional or Design Patent Creation with PowerPatent software and services.

The Asahi Intec Co., Ltd. patent solves the following problem:

The invention relates to a wire-stranded medical hollow tube having a plurality of metallic wires twisted along a circular line shaped into a coreless haw configuration, and especially concerns a medical tube body and a medical guide wire to the wire -stranded medical hollow tube attached.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Asahi Intec Co., Ltd.’s patent US 6881194 B2 deals with Wire-stranded medical hollow tube, and a medical guide wire.
In a wire-stranded hollow tube (1), a number of metal wires (8) preformed with a predetermined rate building that twisted along a circular line to a careless haw configuration. When twisting the metal wires (8), the adjacent metallic elements (1, 1 a) is subjected to compression without gaps between adjacent metallic elements (1, 1 a). It increases a contact pressure between adjacent metallic elements (1, 1 a) to achieve a good intensity with a good circle and diametrical parallel therebetween, thus preventing the wire-stranded hollow tube (1) from the accidental collapse. A tension between the neighboring metallic elements (1, 1 a) when the metal elements (1, 1 a) in different helical pitch used. By applying the wire-stranded hollow tube (1) to a medical guide wire, a quick torque response and a good torque transmissibility assured that lead to a good manipulatability with a favorable follow-on capability.

Animal sorting and grading system using MRI to predict maximum value

You’ve invested time, talent, and energy into making a dent in the universe with your invention and ideas. Now it’s time to make sure it’s protected with PowerPatent’s Utility, Provisional or Design Patent Filing Software

The Pheno Imaging, Inc. patent solves the following problem:

One of the greatest challenges facing the food industry today is providing consistent quality and uniform to bring their products to the end. In beef cattle to feed the conflict is the number of days an animal feed (days on feed) to reach his maximum potential value carcass when the animal is called completed. During the cattle feeding the average number of days on feed for a whole pen of 300 animals is approximately 120 days. The whole market Stylus Then a meat processor.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

Pheno Imaging, Inc.’s patent US 6877460 B1 deals with Animal sorting and grading system using MRI to predict maximum value.
A system that compares, file, sort and grade the animal or carcass to groups like the kind according to the previously determined maximum predicted values. For live animals, the system used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with a chance to evaluate the animals and determine the number of days the animals must be fed to achieve a a maximum value. For body, the system inspects the carcass grade quality and quantity of meat on the carcass will. system also combines MRI imaging with a three-dimensional system to refine the number of days left for the animal to reach a maximum value, and the system, when used in a feedlot, lead the animal into a feed pen based on the number of days left for the animals to achieve maximum value.

According to a plasma display apparatus of the present invention, at least one sub-field, applied to a driving signal having the data written to each pixel of a frequency apply a first frequency apply human then, the frequencies are different from each other. The first frequency is controlled to be lower, and the frequency by which long controlled, for example (two-frequency driving method). With a first low-frequency pulse, initially keeping a sustain period beginning stably, and with a high-frequency pulse thereafter, to carry out sustained. Using the high-frequency pulse increases the number of light emissions, thus leading to the development of light. Thus, the present invention can both fulfill stabilization and increase in light, and therefore improve the picture quality of plasma display apparatus.
