Panasonic has developed technology for using an LED as the light source so that smartphones can read optical ID (identifier) signals containing various kinds of information.

  • Panasonic showcased Visible Light ID (identifier) Technology which only requires an app-installed smartphone at CES2015.

On the LED side, technology for communicating information through LED flashing at high speed has been utilized before. However, to make such information readable, the system used fluctuations in brightness that could be seen by the human eye.

But the technology we’ve developed now can vary the LED’s brightness at such high frequency, the flashing or fluctuation, isn’t visible to the human eye. The feature of this technology is on the smartphone side; it makes the signal readable by an ordinary smartphone.

Panasonic made the following technological improvement with accompanying benefits for consumers and tourists:

Newseum’s ‘Reporting Vietnam’: New Exhibit of Powerful Photos & News Footage for the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War: May 22, 2015 – Sept. 12, 2016

Tue May 19, 2015

The following video presents Documentary Video: The Napalm Girl:

40 years ago we met The Napalm Girl. The iconic photo woke the world up to the brutal reality of collateral damage. We traveled to Vietnam-to the very spot where history was made-to produce The Power of a Picture for ABC7, Los Angeles.

All the key players were interviewed…the little girl-Kim Phuc, the photographer-Nick Ut, the reporter-Christopher Wain, Vietnam vets…we’re extremely proud of this news-doc. Four decades later, the photo and the girl are as powerful as ever.

Here’s the first part of the critically-acclaimed TV special. Winner of the 2013 Edward R Murrow Award.

Witness: The Power of a Picture
Originally aired 6/2/12 on ABC7, Los Angeles

More than 90 compelling artifacts, historic newspapers and magazines will take visitors back to experience a time when America was at war and young people were rejecting the conservative values of their parents.

MIT Algorithm Filters Reflections Out Of Through The Glass Photos

Sat May 16, 2015

Taking photos through windows almost always yields reflections of the photographer and of persons and objects in front of the glass. Now, MIT researchers have created an algorithm that will remove reflections from most digital photos by exploiting the fact that photos taken through windows often feature two nearly identical reflections, slightly offset from each other. This is true of double-paned windows and thick single-pane windows.

Though there have been other attempts at removing reflections from photos before, results have had partial success, especially in automatically deciding if the recovered scene is the one reflected by the window or the one behind the window. MIT’s new algorithm successfully distinguished reflection from transmission in real-world tests involving 197 images (obtained through searches on Google and Flickr), 96 of which exhibited double reflections that were offset far enough for their algorithm to work.

I imagine the algorithm could eventually be incorporated onto imaging chips, allowing the removal of unwanted glass reflections during shooting or when reviewing the photos in-camera during playback.
