General information

Short Summary
The seamless pattern generator technology allows to decide which elements of the input image are wanted in the final result without alterations, the % of pixels, operate with 2 or more images merging them into the same pattern as well as define the geometry-size of the perimeter. The SME looks for partners interested in in either adopting the technology for their design and production purposes or integrating it into their portfolio as added-value feature. A commercial agreement is also foreseen.
Full Description
A Basque SME specialized in design and production of fabrics (printed textiles) with wide experience in the development of innovative value propositions is offering a technological solution that allows the generation of repeating patterns (rapports) from any image in very short periods of time. Rapports refer to a repeating pattern or motif that is designed to seamlessly align when multiple units of the fabric are joined or printed. The design is created in such a way that when the fabric is produced in larger quantities, the pattern seamlessly aligns at the edges of each unit. This allows for the creation of larger, continuous designs without visible breaks or interruptions. Rapports are particularly important in the production of printed textiles, where precision in pattern alignment is crucial for achieving a high-quality and aesthetically pleasing final product. Textile designers often work on creating rapports, ensuring that the patterns are well-balanced and repeat consistently. The goal is to achieve a visually appealing and cohesive design across the entire fabric.

The company seeks to complete the development or to partner a third party to develop (currently the simplest solution included in the patent application has been demonstrated) one of the most versatile solutions the said technology solution is capable of. This includes:

1.- selection of the input image motifs that have to be in the final result.
2.- selection of the motifs that will not be part of the final result.
3.- definition of the percentage of pixels that are required in the final result of the original image.
4.- Programming of different complex solutions.
5.- programming to work with 2 or more input images for fusion into the final result.
6.- Definition of the geometry and measurement of the final result.
7.- new developments around what’s already been tested.

The company is offering either an investment agreement for the development of all the potential contained in this technology, or licensing agreements with partners to develop and incorporate the proposed technological solution into their portfolio and/or agreements for joint development.
Advantages and Innovations
The state of the art to achieve a rapport, repetition pattern from an image or area of an image was limited to solutions and patents that required inevitably manual work on the part of the designer. The universality of the technology solution developed by the Basque company allows unlimited results for the same input image. In addition, designers can also decide which elements will go in the final result and which elements will not. Also, they may select the percentage of similarity with respect to the image input, operate with 2 or more images and merge them into the same rapport, define the geometry and measurement of the final perimeter. All automated with results in seconds.

Partner Sought

Expected Role of a Partner
The company is looking for cooperation in three different lines:
1.- investment agreements to develop the potential of the solutions described, currently the simplest solution included in it is programmed.
2.- license agreements for a third party to develop and exploit it by integrating it into their portfolio.
3.- research and development agreements to explore even further the potential of the technology described.
