Title
(EN) A 3D PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTER WITH A CHEMICAL PROCESSOR
(FR) IMPRIMANTE PHOTOGRAPHIQUE 3D A PROCESSEUR CHIMIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A 3D printer that has a chemical processor in-line with the printer. The preferred printer is a single-stage printer that uses two video cameras with different magnification powers for acquiring images from 2D negatives for editing and key subject aligment. One video camera takes full view image for key subject selection and picture cropping, the other video camera which is used for acquiring image data for key subject alignment sees only an enlarged section of the image around the key subject. The single-stage printer uses an automated image matching algorithm to find the relative location of the key subject in each negative frame. The single-stage printer also includes a chemical processor so that photo processing can be part of an in-line printing process.

Imprimante 3D présentant un processeur chimique en ligne avec l'imprimante. L'imprimante préférée est une imprimante à un étage utilisant deux caméras vidéo avec des puissances de grossissement différentes destinées à l'acquisition d'images à partir de négatifs 2D, pour un montage et un alignement des sujets clefs. Une caméra vidéo prend une image de la totalité de la vue afin de sélectionner les sujets clefs et de couper l'image, l'autre caméra vidéo utilisée dans l'acquisition de données d'image pour l'alignement des sujets clefs ne voit qu'une partie agrandie de l'image autour du sujet clef. L'imprimante à un étage utilise un algorythme d'adaptation d'image automatique pour trouver l'emplacement relatif du sujet clef dans chaque image négative. L'imprimante à un étage comprend également un processeur chimique de sorte que le traitement photographique puisse faire partie d'un processus d'impression en ligne.
