Advances in Digital Imaging and their Impact on the Bank of Canada's Bank Note Image Distribution Policy
Abstract:In recent years, the availability of high quality, inexpensive scanning, image editing and printing equipment has markedly increased. Images of bank notes, once difficult to obtain, are now readily available. As the availability of images has increased, so has the risk of misuse for the purpose of counterfeiting. As a direct consequence of the widespread availability of digital imaging capabilities to the general public, the Bank of Canada has made several modifications to the images it distributes, the procedures governing who is allowed to use them and the restrictions placed on their use. This paper describes circumstances which led to the development of the Bank of Canada's image distribution policy, the library of images, and the adoption of digital watermarking technology.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
