Reduced bitcount polygon rasterization
Techniques are disclosed for carrying out rasterization of a given graphics workload, wherein portions of the workload associated with relatively high bit count operations are processed via a first process path, and portions of the workload associated with relatively lower bit count operations are processed via a second, relatively faster process path, in accordance with an embodiment. In a more general sense, maximal bit count associated with a given primitive can be identified and compared to a threshold to determine which one of multiple available processing paths can be used..

Method for optimizing printing quality for image-laden pdf files at lower file sizes
A system for staging printable assets included in an electronic print order submitted by users through a graphics user interface for printing by one or more print vendors over a data network includes a server connected to the network, the server having access to least one processor and a data repository, the server including a non-transitory physical medium, and software running from the non-transitory physical medium, the software providing for receiving the electronic print order, recording the positional data of each of the printable assets included for printing, compressing and rasterizing certain printable assets of the electronic order, selecting certain printable assets of the electronic printing order and including those items as vector assets, and reconstructing the printable assets, page, or pages for a printer or printers.. .

Method for printing pdf files containing corrupted pages
A method for print portable document format (pdf) files with corrupted pages, comprising the steps of rasterizing images of non-corrupt pages but not corrupted pages of a pdf file, printing only non-corrupt pages of the pdf file, gathering and recording file and page information including which pages are non-corrupt pages and which pages are corrupted pages in the pdf file, allowing correction of the corrupted pages of the pdf file for reprint, retrieving saved file and page information for reprint of the pdf file. Based on the file and page information retrieved and print options and merge mode selected, the reprint process proceeds with rasterizing images of the corrected corrupted pages, and printing the corrected corrupted pages while merging with the already-printed non-corrupt pages to produce a complete set of print out of all non-corrupt pages and corrected corrupted pages of the pdf file in a correct sequence according to the file and page information retrieved..

Inkjet recording device, inkjet recording method, and inkjet recording system
The advantage of the invention is to provide an inkjet recording method and the like in which an unprinted portion due to a multipath method is not left in a back end portion of a printed image and the value as a printed material is not undermined in a case where a printing operation by a multipath method is temporarily stopped in the middle and the printing operation is resumed after feeding a recording medium. A printing operation is temporarily stopped after conducting a back end portion line formation process for forming a raster line so as to prevent an unprinted portion due to an multipath method from being left in a back end portion of a printed image which has been printed halfway when temporarily stopping the printing operation in the middle..

Three-dimensional range data compression using computer graphics rendering pipeline
A method includes obtaining three-dimensional range data, using a computer graphics rendering pipeline to encode the three-dimensional range data into two-dimensional images, retrieving depth information for each sampled pixel in the two-dimensional images, and encoding the depth information into red, green and blue color channels of the two-dimensional images. The two-dimensional images may be compressed using two-dimensional techniques including dithering.

Image processing apparatus, image recording apparatus, image processing method, and recording medium storing an image processing program
In an image processing apparatus, after a rasterizer checks resolution of raster data, if the resolution of the raster data is lower than a predefined resolution, a barcode detector analyzes the raster data and detects a barcode area. If there is a barcode area, a barcode direction determining unit determines barcode direction, and a resolution convertor enhances resolution of the barcode on black planes in a direction perpendicular to the bar direction of the barcode..

Method, apparatus, and system for controlling three dimensional displays
Method, apparatus, and system for controlling three dimensional displays are provided. The method comprises: acquiring a current time when a liquid crystal raster device is driven by a ac driving voltage signal; shutting down a backlight source when the current time is within a setting period of time included in an input period of the ac driving voltage signal, wherein the setting period of time refers to a period during which a polarity of the ac driving voltage signal changes such that an image crosstalk is generated when the backlight source is in a normal-open state.
