NCHC won 1 Gold and 2 Bronze Awards in 2011 Taipei International Invention Show and Technomart2011/10/05
The National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) received good news on research achievements again. First time participating in 2011 Taipei International Invention Show and Technomart (Taipei INST), NCHC, competing with more than 900 works from 23 countries, won 1 Gold and 2 Bronze Awards with its three patents namely “Virtual set-top box system and method,” “Liquid level detection method,” and “Remote camera synchronization controlling system.”
The annual event, Taipei INST, was held from September 29th at Exhibition Hall 1 of Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC). This year’s event contained more than 2,000 inventions and patents. Among those works, NCHC’s “Virtual set-top box system and method”, integrating technologies of grid computing, streaming, and image processing, allows users to control, adjust, and display virtual TV remote device via Internet. It can provide various streaming media on demand. Because of its innovation, commercialization, marketability, functionality, and practicability, it won the Gold Award. Furthermore, the “Liquid level detection method,” incorporating the monitor images of water level with image identification technology, enables users to identify the specific liquid level and further compute images of it. Another NCHC’s research -- “Remote camera synchronization controlling system” provides a rapid and convenient method to capture multiple images by simultaneously remote controlling cameras through network. Credited with their popularization, convenience, and market potential, the “Liquid level detection method” and the “Remote camera synchronization controlling system,” won Bronze Awards, and both were the R&D achievements accomplished jointly by NCHC and Water Resources Agency, Ministry of Economic Affairs. They have been implemented in flood monitoring, hazard prevention and rescue support, and environmental education.
"Better Living" has been the ultimate goal of NCHC. NCHC’s mission is to create more value-added services by applying innovative technologies in Taiwan’s living applications. The outstanding performance, with 1 Gold and 2 Bronze Awards in the first time participating in the Taipei INST, is not only the glory for NCHC’s Environmental & Disaster Mitigation Grid Team, but also the affirmation for the continuous innovative work of NCHC.
