|20120262578||VEHICULAR AROUND-VIEW DRIVING MONITOR AND RECORDER - A vehicular around-view driving monitor and recorder includes a plurality of wide-angle cameras, a real-time image monitoring and recording/playing unit, a visual image operation system, and a display device, which enables a real-time monitoring and recording of around-view raw image data shot by wide-angle cameras. The present invention also performs a real-time visual processing which includes data correction toward the twisted raw images, image overlapping and a combination of algorithmic operation via the visual image operation system to convert those raw images shot from cameras into round-view ones shown on the display which fits the driver's visual practice and driving habit, and provides better safety, correct and convenient visual assistance and driving judgment. Alternatively, the processed images could be displayed in a bird-view mode to have an additional circumferential reference. Therefore, it is applicable to drivers' visual assistance and the recovery of traffic evidence of various types of vehicles.||10-18-2012|
|20120020196||NETWORK-BASED REAL-TIME OPTIC DISC WRITER DEVICE - A network-based real-time optic disc writer device has at least two disc writer assemblies and a monitoring unit. Each of the disc writer assemblies has a disc writer unit and host controller with a detection unit. The disc writer unit is electrically connected to the host controller and has a robotic arm, at least two disc writers, and an optic disc deposition zone. The at least two disc writers and the optic disc deposition zone are arranged at one side of the robotic arm to allow the robotic arm to selectively pick up and deposit optic discs and also to allow the at least two disc writers to perform continuous writing to optic discs. The monitoring unit communicates with the host controller of each of the disc writer assemblies, so as to enable ready communication through networks, real-time notification and monitoring and continuous, un-interrupted writing operation of optic discs.||01-26-2012|
|20120019586||AUTOMATIC PRINTING OUTPUT INSPECTION DEVICE FOR OPTIC DISC AND PRINTER AND DISC WRITER INCORPORATING SAME - Disclosed are an automatic printing output inspection device for optic disc and a printer and a disc writer incorporating the device. The automatic inspection device includes an image taking unit that takes an image of printing output of an optic disc, which is then processed by an image processing unit and compared by a comparison and identification unit with an original source of patterns to determine printing quality of the image. When it is determined that the printing quality does not match the original source, an alarm and feed-back unit is actuated to issue alarm notification for facilitating subsequent handling. Through the automatic inspection, printing quality of an optic disc can be efficiently inspected and products with poor printing can be identified for timely notification that helps saving waste of material, improving efficiency of printing output of optic disc, and saving human labor and time for inspection.||01-26-2012|
|20110305130||OPTIC DISC WRITER DEVICE - An optic disc writer device is an embedded type independent system. It has a host controller, a disc writer assembly, and a printer assembly. The disc writer assembly is electrically connected to the host controller and has a robotic arm, at least one disc writer, and an optic disc deposition zone. The robotic arm is operated to move to the optic disc deposition zone for picking and/or depositing an optic disc and to move the optic disc to the disc writer by which a writing operation is performed on the disc to provide a writing-completed disc. The printer assembly is electrically connected to the host controller. The printer assembly includes a disc tray that is controlled by the host controller for extension and withdrawal for receiving the writing-completed disc therein. The printer assembly is operated to form printing of patterns on a surface of the writing-completed disc.||12-15-2011|
|20110261669||OPTIC DISC COPYING DEVICE WITH VOICE OUTPUT - Provided is an optic disc copying device with voice output, including an optic disc drive, at least one disc burner, and a copying controller. The copying controller includes a voice output circuit module for retrieving, from an optic disc loaded in either the optic disc drive or the disc burner, voice data, which after being processed and converted, are output to realize a voice output function. As such, after a copying operation, a newly copied optic disc can be immediately displayed for aural inspection of the music or sounds/voices contained in the disc and the device also shows a function of music displaying.||10-27-2011|
|20110234793||DIGITAL SECURITY MONITORING SYSTEM - A digital security monitoring system includes a main control unit, at least one camera, and a recording unit. The at least one camera is electrically connected to the main control unit. The main control unit is also electrically connected to the recording unit which includes a robotic arm, at least two optical disc recorders, and an optic disc storage area. The mentioned optical disc recorders and the optic disc storage area are arranged at a location adjacent to the robotic arm to allow the robotic arm to access the optic disc storage area and also to allow the at least two optical disc recorders to carry out uninterrupted disc recording operations. Thus, it provides a real-time recording of video data from the camera, non-interrupted recording operation, extended time of video data protection, easy filing and management and timely displaying of data, etc.||09-29-2011|
|20080298009||REMOVABLE HARD DISK MODULE - A removable hard disk module is provided which is mainly applicable to a server system. The removable hard disk module includes a server rack and a hard disk removable enclosure which is detachable form the server rack. The server rack has at least one pair of accommodation slots with threads formed on an inner wall thereof. The hard disk removable enclosure defines a space to accommodate a hard disk and has a threaded engagement portion disposed therein corresponding to the threads. When the hard disk removable enclosure is inserted into the accommodation slots, the threaded engagement portion is contacted with the threads, and the hard disk removable enclosure is moved alone to the threads through the threaded engagement portion, thereby the hard disk removable enclosure is moved into and fixed within the accommodation slots of the server rack.||12-04-2008|
