Our research is aimed at inventing technologies that enable and
enhance seamless digital media experiences. We aim to automate the
creation of professional-quality images, publications and other
Our research has played an integral role
in establishing and maintaining HP’s technical leadership in
digital imaging and publishing – touching nearly every HP imaging
product, from printers to scanners to cameras to commercial
publishing systems. Most recently, we contributed to new
technologies in HP cameras that make it possible to remove red-eye,
preview a panorama and adapt the lighting – all inside the camera
without a PC.
We’ve made key contributions to industry
standards for multimedia. We’ve applied our technology to art
conservation, working with such institutions as the Louvre,
London’s National Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art
in New Delhi. And we’ve even helped the U.S. government determine
how to deter currency counterfeiters.
We take a fundamental systems approach to
our research, looking at digital imaging and publishing systems as a
whole rather than focusing on individual components or features. Our
scientists and engineers work from the lowest-level firmware up the
stack through to automated workflow-driven networked applications.
We support devices ranging from the inkjet, to the LaserJet
family, and up into our Indigo Digital Press family.
As we look to the future, we are
investigating new, less resource-intensive media types – requiring
less storage, memory and bandwidth – with the goal of expanding
media access to more of the world’s population.
