A DOTTY IDEA
CAN YOU IMAGINE
THAT THE DOTTY IMAGES THAT YOU SEE ON THE RIGHT
WHEN SCANNED AND RUN THROUGH A SOFTWARE
WOULD CONTAIN 20 MUSIC TRACKS
OR A GAME SOFTWARE
OR THE LAST 2 YEARS BACK-UP DATA
OF A COMPANY
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF INTACTA
What is Intacta
code is a system that allows digital data to be printed
on a single page
in a pattern of black and white dots
arranged on a
two-dimensional graphic grid.
you could be downloading SOFTWARE, MUSIC, MOVIES and SPECIAL OFFERS
directly from your newspaper.
at INTACTA Technologies Inc., have found a way to encode almost any kind
program, music files, high resolution images, video clips etc.
The dots can be converted back into software or music tracks
by passing a standard scanner over the pattern.
Once the data dots have been scanned,
a computer can turn them back into their original program using a special
program to do the converting is freely available on the Internet.
Newspaper pages are ordinarily made up only of characters, photographs
However, the impact of television and the spread of
multimedia have led to demands from readers
for newspaper pages with
greater representational power.
Multimedia capability, it is thought,
would enable newspaper publishers
to offer more appealing news coverage
Readers, after installing the
viewing program on a Windows computer,
can capture the data with any
commercially available, general-use scanner
with a resolution of at least
300 dpi and then reproduce it in its original multimedia form.
This technology could be used, for example, to reproduce music samples,
obtain stock prices and other numerical data in spreadsheet form, and
retrieve game programs.
The technology is also expected to facilitate the
use of paper as an alternative "memory" format.
anticipated that the use of these programs will help the newspaper
industry introduce a multimedia
dimension to newspaper pages, making
possible the attachment of detailed information
with advertisements and
otherwise broadly increasing the appeal of printed media.
