Método y sistema de numeración de páginas de publicaciones impresas


Oferta Tecnológica
Una pyme portuguesa ha desarrollado un nuevo sistema de numeración de páginas pendiente de patentar. Este sistema es especialmente interesante para la reproducción de información compleja en soportes impresos. El sistema permite que dos páginas consecutivas estén siempre presentes en un único campo de visión simultáneamente. La empresa busca socios industriales (grandes empresas), universidades y centros de I+D en el área de edición, reproducción e impresión interesados en modificar la forma que tienen los lectores de leer un libro, y ofrece la patente mediante un acuerdo de licencia.


A method and system for the pagination of a printed publication, and printed publication obtained thereof is offered for licensing.
An SME, with its origin in Louriçal, Portugal is searching for licensing partners for novel pagination (see the Picture) for which patents have been applied for but not yet granted. It should be particularly interesting to the reproduction of complex information to printed supports.
The ideal partner has the dimension and ambition to challenge the status quo and improve their customers´ experience in reading published contents.
The PCT request with priority date of 18-10-2017 aims to solve a common problem of sequencing information in physical formats. That is to say, books magazines newspapers or other physical supports of information. As an example let´s consider Pages 1, 2 and 3, where page 1 will be visible at the same time as page 2 but then only on the back of page 2 will we have page 3. Therefore, while we may have the information on page 1 and page 2 visible simultaneously this method does not allow to have contents of page 2 and page 3 equally visible, therefore losing sequence in visibility.

Now let´s consider instead of having the traditional organization of pages to have a new sequential system of pages.

As an illustration of this solution, let´s have page 1 on the right side and page 2 on the left side, now instead of following the normal sequence either by Western or Eastern standards, let´s have page 1 turning over page 2. On the flip of the page we will be having the content of page 2 on the left side while at same time we will have the content of page 3 on the right side. Following the previous sequencing of pagination on the back of page 1 will be page number 4 - the leaf that was previously being flipped, which in the middle of its translation movement becomes nearly invisible to the human eye.

Now, consider particularly complex information: for example a table of information or a graph, from the perspective of the reader, inadvertently, information will be on the back of the page therefore creating the annoyance of flipping the page back and forth to reveal asynchronously the content that should be simultaneously visible.

This nuisance could be tackled by bothersome, costly and time-consuming editing of the contents throughout the book placing the information to make sure that these contents are visible simultaneously, nonetheless frequently creating a situation where pages will be left blank, or otherwise lose the information logical sequence. Moreover, this solution allows to at any given time have critical information at page "n", a page of introduction in "n-1" and a conclusion in "n+1", while consistently having the critical information visible in relation.

Furthermore, this solution not only saves costs associated with editing/printing, but also allows the natural sequence of the book to keep moving forward in a seamless way. Constantly revealing the contents of page 1 and page 2, thereafter the contents of page 2 and page 3 as well as the contents of page 3 and page 4 and so forth.

Therefore adding value to both the publishers, writers and readers alike. Illustrative figure follows in attachment.

The Portuguese company is looking for industry partners (large companies), universities and R-Y-D institutions specialised in the area of editing, reproduction, printing, among others interested in changing the way readers read books. The company offers its patent through a licensing agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
The present invention is enclosed in the area of pagination of printed publications such as a newspaper or a book. It is an object of the present invention a method for the pagination of a printed publication which comprises the following steps: a) providing a sequence of media to be printed on the publication, b) providing a first positioning for even pages and a second positioning for odd pages wherein said first positioning and second positioning are such that any ¿ odd page is: i) positioned adjacently to an ¿ + 1 first even page, and ii) has on its directly opposite side a second even page ¿ + 3, and c) printing and sequencing and d) organising the sheets, and thereby obtaining said printed publication. Such method therefore provides that two consecutive pages are always simultaneously present in a single field of view obtained from a position in front of the publication. Although the reader adaptation in the Western markets may seem a barrier for being unnatural, that should not be the case in the Eastern markets where people are already used to diverse reading methodologies. Moreover this solution could represent a bridge towards cultural adaptation to either side. This could be of particular interest and value as the Eastern economies grow in global importance, as well as in literacy levels.
