16934 results about "Recording media" patented technology

Recording media. A recording medium is a physical material that holds information. Newly created information is distributed and can be stored in four storage media–print, film, magnetic, and optical–and seen or heard in four information flows–telephone, radio and TV, and the Internet as well as being observed directly.

Method and system for facilitating advertising and t-commerce transactions in connection with content stored on a storage medium

In one embodiment, the present invention is an improved interactive television system and method for t-commerce. In this embodiment, the present invention relates to a method for facilitating transactions by a user through a television system including a playback device. The method includes providing a first storage medium with pre-recorded content stored on the recording medium; storing an interactive advertisement on the first storage medium; generating a trigger for the interactive advertisement; displaying the interactive advertisement on the television system in response to the trigger when the first storage medium is played by the playback device; prompting the user to respond to the interactive advertisement; generating a transaction request from the user response; and transmitting the transaction request through the television system.
This embodiment of the invention further includes storing a user identification within the television system and generating a transaction request from the user response and the user identification. The user identification may be stored in a second storage medium distinct from the first storage medium. Additionally, an electronic wallet including personal information of the user may be stored.

Read/write head including displacement generating means that elongates and contracts by inverse piezoelectric effect of electrostrictive effect

A read/write head includes a slider provided with an electromagnetic transducer element (or an optical module), an actuator, and a suspension. The actuator includes a fixed part, a movable part, and at least two beam members for coupling them together. The beam members have a displacement generating means that elongates and contracts by inverse piezoelectric effect or electrostrictive effect. The fixed part is fixed to the suspension, and the movable part is fixed to the slider. Upon the elongation and contraction of the displacement generator, the displacement generator deflects and the movable part displaces linearly, circularly or rotationally with respect to the fixed part, and the electromagnetic transducer element displaces in a linear or circular orbit, so that the electromagnetic transducer element intersects recording tracks. In the actuator, the fixed part, movable part and beam members are formed as an integrated single piece by providing a hole and/or a cutout in a sheet-like member constructed of a piezoelectric or electrostrictive material. The actuator of the structure illustrated is used for the positioning of a direction intersecting recording tracks. In this case, the total sum of voltages applied on the displacement generating means is controlled in such a manner that it is constant at any time, thereby controlling position fluctuations of the electromagnetic transducer element in the direction vertical to the recording medium surface.

Device and method for recognizing hand shape and position, and recording medium having program for carrying out the method recorded thereon

An object of the present invention is to provide a device and a method for recognizing hand shape and position even if a hand image to be provided for recognition is rather complicated in shape, and a recording medium having a program for carrying out the method recorded thereon.A hand image normalization part 11 deletes a wrist region respectively from a plurality of images varied in hand shape and position before subjecting the images to normalization in hand orientation and size to generate hand shape images. An eigenspace calculation part 13 calculates an eigenvalue and an eigenvector respectively from the hand shape images under an analysis based on an eigenspace method. An eigenspace projection part 15 calculates eigenspace projection coordinates by projecting the hand shape images onto an eigenspace having the eigenvectors as a basis. A hand image normalization part 21 deletes a wrist region from an input hand image, and generates an input hand shape image by normalizing the input hand image to be equivalent to the hand shape images. An eigenspace projection part 22 calculates eigenspace projection coordinates for the input hand shape image by projecting the same onto the eigenspace having the eigenvectors as the basis. A hand shape image selection part 23 compares the eigenspace projection coordinates calculated for the input hand shape image with each of the eigenspace projection coordinates calculated for the hand shape images, and then determines which of the hand shape images is closest to the input hand shape image. A shape/position output part 24 outputs shape information and position information on the determined hand shape image.
