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 media.

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.
