Park, Jae-Woo ; Jung, Geun-Jae ; Park, Jong-Hee ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 1~13
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.001
In order to create an intelligent autonomous agent in virtual world, we need a sophisticated design for perception, recognition, judgement and behavior. We develop the perception and recognition functions for such an autonomous agent. Our perception mechanism identifies lines based on differences in color, the primitive visible data, and exploits those lines to grasp shapes and regions in the scene. We develop an inferencing algorithm that can infer the original shape from a damaged or partially hidden shape using its characteristics from the ontology in order to intelligently recognize the perceived shape. Several individually recognized 2D shapes and their spatial relations form 3D shapes and those 3D shapes in turn constitute a scene. Each 3D shape occupies its respective region, and an agent analyzes the associated objects and relevant scenes to recognize things and phenomena. We also develop a mechanism by which an agent uses this recognition function to accumulate and use her knowledge on the scene in the historical context. We implement these functions presented above against an example situation to demonstrate their sophistication and realism.

It is important for the strategy of service to provide the health information in the environment that the healthcare has been changed focusing on the preventive medicine. Recently, the various applications of u-healthcare have been presented by researchers. In this paper, we proposed the health information monitoring system using the context sensors based band. By wearing the proposed hand, the health status is gathered and vital signals are transmitted to the connected UMPC. It can be easily monitored according to the user locations in real time. To provide the health index according to the temperature, the air conditioning, the illumination, the humidity, and the ultraviolet rays, we use the various XML links extracted from RSS of the Korea Meteorological Administration. The health information is analyzed in terms of factors, such as, the asthma index, the stroke index, the skin disease index, the pulmonary disease index, the pollen concentration index, and the city high temperature index. Ultimately, this paper suggests empirical application to verify the adequacy and the validity with the proposed system. Accordingly, the satisfaction and the quality of services will be improved the healthcare.

U-health services have been progressed as treatment and management for specific diseases and prevention services for providing the behavior management to customers according to the increase in chronic patients. The conventional U-health services provide required services and bio-information monitoring only through remote diagnoses and counsels and that represent limitations in preventing and managing metabolic syndrome patients like chronic patients. Thus, in this study a multi platform based U-health service model for managing the health of chronic patients is proposed. The multi-platform based U-health service model can provide continuous health information, diet, and exercise services regardless of the location of customers through PCs and smart phones. In addition, it is able to provide prescription services to doctors and nurses using a CDS (Clinical Decision Support) module based on clinical information. Doctors can identify the life pattern of patients through a behavior modification program and provide customized services to patients. The U-health service model provides effective services in multi-platform environments to customers and that will improve the health of chronic patients.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.033
In this paper we designed and implemented a wireless communication circuit which can control the remote devices integrating RFID and ZigBee. This system unifies transmit part and receive part. And this system recognizes RFID tag data, then the recognized information is controlled by MCU, and transmitted to a remote device through the ZigBee. This is operated on TinyOS. If this system is applied to a entrance security system, it can permit/deny one`s entrance as well as control the personal computer or other electronic devices. Our experiment shows the result of the recognized data transmission is very different according to a opened playground and a closed place. The data transmission time is stable in the indoor and the data transmission distance is long in the outdoor. We anticipate that our system be applied the various office oriented domains by connecting to the Wired LAN or the WLAN of IEEE 802.11x category.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.043
The scope of the problems that could be solved by monitoring and the improvement of the recognition time is directly correlated to the performance of the management function of the business process. However, the current event-managing monitoring system and the real-time advanced alarming business monitoring system decided whether to apply warnings or not by assuming a fixed environment and showing expressions based on the design rules. Therefore, there is a limit for distinguishing the range of occurrence and the level of severity in regard to the new external problems occurring in a complicated environment. Such problems cannot be abstracted. In this paper, evaluation model of business process contextual situations using goal scenario is suggested to provide constant services through the current monitoring process in regard to the service demands of the new scenario which occurs outside. The new demands based on the outside situation are analyzed according to the target scenario for the process activities. Also, a similar process model is found and identified by combining similarity and interrelationship. The process can be stopped in advance or adjusted to the wanted direction.

Digital Contents have been considered as major parts in the areas, such as design, cartoon, video and etc. A number of Digital Contents are made with the works of popular computer program, Photoshop, and used in some courses of making works. Channel is obviously regarded as a high-level function among others in using Photoshop, even though it hinder a lot of users in understanding the way and the principle to use. Channel and Displacement Map have something in common, because they share the infoshade of channel. The infoshade is the information of 256 levels which consists of black and achromatic colors between white and black color. The infoshade of Channel is used as a concept of movement in Displacement Map. Displacement Map analyzes infoshade in `Displacement map images` and transfer the pixels of original images under the application of displacement map. This means that the infoshade of Channel can be made for the application with characteristic of movement. This study was carried out to analyze the principle of application of infoshade in `Displacement Map` with Photoshop. Thus, the central aim of this study is not so much studying engineering algorithm as studying and analyzing the principle of Channel`s infoshade through studying how the infoshade of channel is applied in the work.

Due to the high interests of image quality by consumers, the concerned market becomes more heated. Recent digital camera development tendency shows to perform the higher image quality to meet consumers demand of quality satisfaction. However it is hard to confirm that development of objective image quality performance means positive subjective image quality preference. And also, we cannot find out the previous researches concerned on correlation between objective and subjective image quality comparison. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze the consumers preferred images based on objective image quality performance. Throughout this paper, we analyze statistical correlation between the objective and subjective image quality assessment methods by using ISO standards. In these results, we try to find attributes that enhance image quality. We suggest not only to analyze and reflect on customers` preferences, but also to pursue the high quality image performance practically. We expect the results of this paper to positively influence product development.

The advent of new platforms each year along with the advancement of technology provides a new opportunity for digital media designers to develop creative and innovative contents. This phenomenon affect the same way the students that major in the digital media, and the use of the platforms that is based on the new technology in the development of contents gives a newer and useful opportunity for learning to the students who recently study the digital media area. As the main technology of the recent digital media that attract many students` attention, we are presenting virtual reality display, movement cognition, physical engine and the gesture interface, and developed the consolidated platform based on these four technologies, and designed them in a way that can be more easily implemented in a simpler way. In order to study the efficiency of the platform with the objective of the development of digital media contents, we have developed four different prototype contents, and have measured based on the user`s preference, efficiency and satisfaction. In the results of usability evaluation, functionality, effectiveness, efficiency, satisfaction were rated as `high`. This results shows that the suggested 3D platform environment provides students to develop a rapid prototype fast and easy, and this may have a positive influence on students major in the digital media to conduct creative development research.

The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 88~101
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.088
Locative media is fundamentally different from traditional media in terms of being packed with user`s space, place, and position nearby, which does not simply mean user`s physical coordinates. This study has been started that I was drawn by the tendency of which current locative media contents are based on `location-based information,` and closely related with `Augmented Reality.` I wonder how media user`s psychological experience/involvement are revealed when the media environment changes by the progress of technology. I wonder how media users perceive `social presence` formed by locative media in current locative media environment. Particularly, the fact that user`s perception of social presence formed in locative media conflicts with the previous computer-mediated communication(CMC)`s attributes deepened my curiosity. In this study, the idea of `more-proper-construct` is suggested, the characteristics of social presence in current locative media is considered, and is investigated by qualitative methodology how the `location-based` attributes and `AR` contribute to forming the social presence.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.102
This paper aimed at smartphone applications of department store brands in order to examine the traits of applications for the brand image. The study carried out survey research with 114 smartphone users who experienced the application of a department store, assuming that the design, contents, ease of use, and community characteristics of the application would affect satisfaction and the brand image. This paper performed a confirmatory factor analysis, correlation analysis, and the test of a model using PLS. Results showed that the design and contents of the application affected the improvement of satisfaction and of a brand image, whereas ease of use did not affect satisfaction and brand image. Also, community was influential on satisfaction, whereas it was not influential on the improvement of a brand image. Satisfaction with the application showed a strong impact on the improvement of a brand image; thus, it was found necessary for upcoming brand applications to enhance satisfaction for building a positive brand image.

Extended Cartoon Rendering using 3D Texture
Byun, Hae-Won ; Jung, Hye-Moon ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 123~133
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.123
In this paper, we propose a new method for toon shading using 3D texture which renders 3d objects in a cartoon style. The conventional toon shading using 1D texture displays shading tone by computing the relative position and orientation between a light vector and surface normal. The 1D texture alone has limits to express the various tone change according to any viewing condition. Therefore Barla et. al. replaces a 1D texture with a 2D texture whose the second dimension corresponds to the view-dependent effects such as level-of-abstraction, depthof-field. The proposed scheme extends 2D texture to 3D texture by adding one dimension with the geometric information of 3D objects such as curvature, saliency, and coordinates. This approach supports two kinds of extensions for cartoon style diversification. First, we support "shape exaggeration effect" to emphasize silhouette or highlight according to the geometric information of 3D objects. Second, we further incorporate "cartoon specific effect", which is examples of screen tone and out focusing frequently appeared in cartoons. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach through examples that include a number of 3d objects rendered in various cartoon style.

Lim, Woon-Joo ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 134~141
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.134
This study attempts interpretation of the elements of transcendental fantasy appeared in animation. It is about the characteristics of the different spaces from the reality appeared in animation created out of imagination. In regard to the reason why such aspects of fantasy elements appeared in the whole work appear, it presents the three structures including divisional, fantasy and comprehensive structures and characteristics of spatial images of imagination presented in Gilbert Durand`s "Les Strutures anthropologiques de l`Imaginaire", through visual nature, depth, and maldistribution. Thus, this study examines the elements in animation
. Transcendental fantasy elements give abstract concepts to certain images as it specifically describes them in reality. The fantasy elements operate when it is viewed through the sensibility of the characters. This study attempts to closely approach the issues on how fantasy elements operate in animation.

This study analyzed the brand storytelling campaign of Pasteur drink-type yogurt `Quebyon`. The basic idea of research comes from how unique brand name is able to success in Korean yogurt market. Pasteur storytelling campaign has focused on the product`s branding and positioning. For analyzing the research, Brand Stewardship Model(BSM) which based on consumers` perspectives has been used. For successful storytelling campaign of Pasteur, strong brand name is needed. Pasteur has decided the brand name `Quebyon` which means good movement of the bowels in accordance with the research results. And the positioning has been decided `attack inside (the body) if it does not evacuate`. For powerful positioning, three criterions are decided. They are including harmony with the brand name, differentiation with competitors and easiness with memory. Finally, the Pasteur product dominates the Korean Bulgarian-style yogurt market. The success comes from the harmonizing of Quebyon yogurt`s branding and positioning. In other words, the branding and positioning strategies were working effectively to the consumers. In conclusion, this study has proved why branding and positioning strategies are so important in brand storytelling campaign.

Due to media`s characteristics, the methods of acting expression in stage differ from that in media. However, actors playing in either genre use the same internalization as the basis of their performance. The acting arising from actors` internalization is the same in stage acting and media acting. Nevertheless, media acting, by its genre characteristics, requires a more delicate and natural acting than that in stage acting. Such is because media acting shows a far more detailed and amplified performance that is shown on screen. The purpose of this research is to examine how to differentiate the expression characteristics of media acting from the expression methods of stage acting. Through this research, I attempt to present the expression methods of media acting that can show real life acting reflecting media`s distinct characteristics, with the aim of benefiting students who practice media acting or professional actors. Diverse expression methods presented by training of media acting are expected to enable actors engaged in this field to produce excellent outcomes through acting training to successfully bring out a realistic and convincing performance through internalization. And together with the opportunity to build delicate and detailed acting styles that are required in media acting, acting styles that are differentiated from those in stage acting will also be discussed.

The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 170~176
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.170
When the process of planning and production of Pororo is to be analyzed, scientific and meticulous contents planning which considered even cultural discount, and collaborative business partnership which maximized the strength of each participants are found to be the main success factors. Owing to them, Pororo has resulted in continuous profit making through various outlets, the production of series up to 4 seasons, and successful sales in foreign markets. However, OSMU strategy as the key business strategy was not intended from the stage of planning, but was resulted as the business process after good contents were created. In order to have more successful cases like Pororo, and to build a good animation industry ecosystem, efforts by the industry and effective supporting system by the governments should be met.

The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 177~186
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.177
VMD should be shifted from the store for the exhibition to the top selling store, the store that has something people want to buy, the store where people want to visit and the store that is convenient for shopping. To become the top selling store by using VMD to the information design, the primary research has been conducted on the females in Gwangju Metropolitan City by the questionnaire on the propensity to consume and purchase type. The secondary research has been conducted on the females in university who are fashion conscious. The tertiary research, by the questionnaire, has been conducted on the apparel store at the department store in Gwangju Metropolitan City. As a result of the research, it can be said that the best effect of VMD has been shown in the department store, and as the overall problem, it has become obvious that the standardized design was followed without taking advantage of the characteristics of each store.
Dual Path Impacts of the Consumer Innovativeness in the New Products Adoption Situation
Kim, Hyung-Jun ;
The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 187~197
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.187
There are many researches about effects of consumer innovativeness on the new product adoption behavior. However most of these studies regard this construct as one dimensional concept so that the extant studies suggest very ambiguous results about the relationship between consumer innovativeness and adoption behavior. This study subdivides the construct as cognitive innovativeness and sensory one and suggest these two types of consumer innovativeness affect on the risk perception of the potential adopter differently when the consumer adopt new product. In the empirical research through regression analysis and structure equation model with 217 samples, the study shows the consumer who have high level of cognitive innovativeness are more sensitive to functional risk of new products compared to one who have high level of sensory innovativeness. On the other side, sensory innovative consumer perceive social risk more when they adopt new products than cognitive innovator who have higher level of cognitive innovativeness. The result means there are dual paths on the relationship between consumer innovativeness and new products adoption behavior. Unlike the early studies, this study shows that there`s dual path in relationship between the consumer`s innovativeness and new product adoption. That is the consumer who have higher sensory innovativeness perceive the social risk of new products more sensitively than functional risk but the consumer who have cognitive innovativeness perceive functional risk more. So, new product adoption behavior would be different depending on the sensory or cognitive innovativeness.

The BMD difference depending on QCT and QUS, whose usages are recently being increased for the test of BMD, was accessed for 106 subjects of a general health examination who were aged between 24~69 year-old and results were derived as follows. The measured value of BMD by QCT and QUS showed significant correlation in general (p>0.05). In terms of the difference generated between the measurement methods depending on sexes, the female subjects showed significantly low T-score in the test made through QUS (p<0.05). Depending on ages, there was T-score difference among the subjects aged more than 40 year-old within significant range (p<0.05). When it came to the effect depending on heights and on weights, no group showed significant difference and in a group with less than 22.9 of BMI value, the T-score was measured significantly low when testing it through QCT while other groups were not affected by any testing methods. Likewise, it may require a different measurement method when it comes to the measurement of bone mineral density depending on sex, age, height, and BMI among patients. Thus, it suggests obtaining accurate data by conducting various testing methods in case of a special occasion.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.204
We looked into the content change of microelements participating in the metabolism among the impacts of radiation energy on living bodies. We irradiated X-rays of 1 Gy, 5 Gy and 10 Gy to the whole bodies of mice, and then analyzed the liver tissues. We found that the microelement content had changed in some elements compared with the control group. When it came to changes by radiation dose, there was no significant change with the absorbed level of 1 Gy, but the higher absorbed levels of 5 Gy and 10 Gy reduced the content of Ca and Mn. In particular, the Ca content was reduced the most, apparently causing symptoms such as muscle tension and chronic headache, etc. The increased element was Al, which was found to have increased by 100%. In regard to the content change according to the time elapsed after irradiation, the contents of Fe, Ba, etc. showed the tendency of reduction. The content of Cd, a harmful element, increased by 25%, and it seemed that the element was involved in the calcium metabolism. Therefore, cell damage by radiation energy is determined to have an impact on the content change of microelements and considered to be partly related to a cause of precursor symptoms.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.211
The study conducted a survey on the perception level for radiological technologists with 321 nurses and auxiliary nurses working at university hospitals in Busan in order to supply preliminary data to enhance the status as well as professional images of radiological technologists. The result shows the perception level of
with the highest score for the professional image and the lowest score for the business image. By question, `they are professional` gets the highest score while `they understand problems of patients well` gets the lowest. Among respondents, those who are well aware of education courses as well as leading organization of examination and who answer as a health care provider or a medical technician under the medical law show a high level of perception while those who answer as technician show a low perception level. Those who agree with radiologists as a career and consider their status as high in medical institutions have a high level of perception. In order to improve the perception level, individuals as well as associations` promotion and strategies are required to fix the title and enhance the negative images through active interests and kind attitudes toward patients. Also, efforts to escape from previous images limited to technical colleges, to vitalize academic conference and remedial education, and to frame the law of professional radiological technologists system are asked to heighten the qualification and status of radiological technologists. More than that, advertising and monitoring via mass media are needed to develop the image as professional career men as well.

DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.221
The purpose of this study was to examine validity of the Korean-Child Behavior Checklist: K-CBCL) as measures for emotional and behavioral problems for use with children with autism spectrum disorders. In present study, the factor of the K-CBCL was investigated, using data of 248 children with autism spectrum disorders, with 11.17 mean ages. The two factor model of Internalizing problems (Withdrawn, Somatic Complaints, Anxious/Depressed) and Externalizing problems (Delinquent Behavior, Aggressive Behavior) was investigated by the confirmatory factor analysis. The two factor model of K-CBCL was adequate for children with autism spectrum disorders. The inter-item consistency for the sub-factor of K-CBCL demonstrated on adequate reliability of the measure. Although the inter-item consistency of Withdraw, Social problems, Delinquent Behavior was not acceptable, the inter-item consistency of Internalizing, Externalizing and total problems were good. This results supported validity and reliability and suggested that K-CBCL is used to assess for emotional and behavioral problems in children with autism spectrum disorders.

This study was conducted to explore the effect of health behavior and obesity indices on blood pressure(BP) in 20s men. This was a retrospective exploratory study and the subjects were 214 men who participated in screening test for clinical trial at a tertiary hospital between October 2006 and April 2011. The proportion of normal SBP and DBP was 28.5% and 50.0%, respectively. BP was significantly higher in individuals who were hypertriglyceridemia and hypercholesterolemia than BP in subjects of opposing categories. DBP was significantly higher in individuals who were 25~29 years and smokers than DBP in subjects of opposing categories. The significant factors of increasing SBP were BMI and TG, and those for DBP were TC, TG, age, and smoking amount. In conclusion, these results demonstrate hypertention prevention program to include decreasing intake of TC and TG, maintaining normal BMI and quitting smoking needs to the young men in 20s.

Korea has a problem in treating unnatural dead bodies; law enforcement police officers have a difficulty in analyzing an accurate cause of a death, for they are not specialized in autopsy. But they must take charge of the affair at a spot for the first time. Sometimes this may give an indulgence to a killer. It results in generating an unjust victim. So, a police activity in response to an unnatural dead body must be improved surely. As a response to it, this thesis scrutinizes the unnatural dead body treatment under the Japanese police system, taking a continental law, which has a legal structure similar to our`s, and on the basis of it presents a suggestion in response to an unnatural dead body by Korean police. First, the system on treating the unnatural dead body has to be severe. Second, police engaging in treating the unnatural dead body have to take the education on treating dead bodies more deeply. Third, implements on treating dead bodies have to be secured.

The study empirically examines if transformational leadership and implementation of corporate training programs positively affect employees` affirmative psychology toward the organization, which has been actively studied in 2000s meeting the needs of the times. The study, further, examines if the employees` affirmative psychology toward organization has any significant relationship with perceived organizational support, The study finally examines if the perceived organizational support has any influence on organizational performance. Researchers have recently studied on these issues, but there have been few empirical studies. In addition to those causal relationships, the study also examines how the employees` affirmative psychology toward organization and perceived organizational support moderate those relationships, if any, among the variables, by which the study would contribute to building theoretical foundation of affirmative psychology. The results show that all the studied relationships be accepted as hypothesized, which may imply that leaders should exploit their own leadership capacity and organizations should improve their corporate training programs, which may consequently have positive impacts on organizational performance.

The study empirically analyses a linear relationship between terrestrial advertising rates and viewer ratings. Consistent with the results of preceding studies, the present study finds a convex relationship between standard advertising rates and viewer ratings. However, after all other sales practices are taken into account, a linear relationship is documented between per-minute advertising revenue and viewer ratings. Absent the exact functional relationship between the two, it is hard to evaluate accurately how efficiently or inefficiently the current GS System has operated, but it tells us that a certain level of market mechanism prevailed within the system. The findings are consistent with the 1 Public-1 Private Media Representative alternative among many alternatives currently sought by the KCC should we accept the premise that the public aspect is as equally important as, if not more important than, the efficiency aspect of terrestrial broadcasting.

The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, volume 11, issue 8, 2011, Pages 475~487
DOI : 10.5392/JKCA.2011.11.8.475
In this paper, we present a systematic method to derive spectrum of high-order pulse and a novel design of e-Learning system that deals with deriving the spectrum using concept-based branching method. Spectrum of high-order pulse can be derived using conventional methods including `Consecutive Differentiations` or `Convolutions`, however, their complexity of calculation should be too high to be used as the order of the pulse increase. We develop a recursive algorithm according to the order of pulse, and then derive the formula of spectrum connected to the order with a newly designed look-up table. Moving along, we design an e-Learning content for studying the procedure of deriving high-order pulse spectrum described above. In this authoring, we use the concept-based object branching method including conventional page or title-type branching in sequential playing. We design all four Content-pages divided into `Modeling`, `Impulse Response and Transfer Function`, `Parameters` and `Look-up Table` by these conceptual objects. And modules and sub-modules are constructed hierarchically as conceptual elements from the Content-pages. Students can easily approach to the core concepts of the analysis because of the effects of our new teaching method. We offer step-by-step processes of the e-Learning content through unit-based branching scheme for difficult modules and sub-modules in our system. In addition we can offer repetitive learning processes for necessary block of given learning objects. Moreover, this method of constructing content will be considered as an advanced effectiveness of content itself.

This study is an analysis of how national newspapers and local newspapers frame news contents over selecting of the site of International science-business belt. The results of analysis are as follows. First, in national newspapers, `incompetent government frame` to criticize inconsistent policies and `relapse prevention frame` were most commonly found. Second, newspapers in the region chosen as the site of an International Science-business belt and newspapers in the region not chosen showed a severe contrast in news frames. Most of news frames in the region chosen as the site of an International science-business belt were `development frame` and `performance frame`. On the other hand, newspapers in the region not chosen produced `incompetent government frame` and `protest frame` more than others. Finally, local newspapers in the area not related with the site of an International Science-business belt did not even deal with such an articles. These results show that to win large-scale national projects such as PIMFI facilities, local governments have been too much competitive and connected to a conflict.
