As the various adjustments are being made to the Tx configuration for each point along each scan line, a corresponding set of variables must change in-step on the receive side.
The number of foci used will determine the number of pulses per scan line.
This paper presented a new algorithm for print space recognition based on assigning a score for each individual line and column followed by scan line use in order to detect the cropping bounds.
The OBM group has embarked on the building of a proof-of-concept demonstration which will deliver a volumetric monochrome image 80 mm wide by 60 mm high and 80 mm deep, of 440 scan lines at 30 Hz frequency, with a 24[degrees] angle of view, all with an optical path length approx 1500 mm so that the whole system will fit into a shallow box.
