Embodiments of the present disclosure provide methods, systems, and program products for autoamtically generating sweepstakes rewards. A method according to the present disclosure can include: pairing a sweepstakes token with a user profile stored in an electronic data processing system operated by an administrator independent from a sweepstakes administrator; generating a user prize inventory for the user profile using a selection of prizes from a master inventory, a user-generated inventory, and an inventory of a different user profile; in response to the token being a winning token, purchasing at least one eligible prize from the user prize inventory and deducting a cost of the at least one eligible prize from a sweepstakes monetary reward; and in response to the token being a non-winning token, generating at least one coupon for an eligible prize based on the user prize inventory.

A high speed tabletop and industrial printer is disclosed with integrated high speed RFID encoding and verification at the same time. The industrial printer simultaneously prints on and electronically encodes/verifies RFID labels, tags, and/or stickers attached to a continuous web. The industrial printer comprises a lighted sensor array for indexing the printing to the RFID tags; and a cutter powered from the industrial printer for cutting the web that the RFID tags are disposed on. The industrial printer comprises two RFID reader/writers that are individually controlled. Specifically, one of the RFID reader/writers comprises the ability to electronically encode the RFID tags while the web is moving; and the second RFID reader/writer uses an additional RFID module and antenna on the printer for verifying the data encoded to the RFID tags.

A composite image heat transfer is disclosed for use on specific merchandising articles, sports jerseys, or other apparel for a specific sport. A scannable mark would be embedded in a heat transfer positioned on a sports jersey, such as a jersey number or a club crest. The scannable mark would be scanned by a user to provide stats, personal information, or other information about the corresponding sports team/club and/or individual athlete. The user can also register the scannable mark and follow the sports team/club and/or athlete on social media. Thus, the composite image heat transfer with embedded scannable mark would link each jersey number with information related to the corresponding player/athlete, and each club crest would be linked to information related to the corresponding club/team. This would enable a strong interaction through social media and other web tools between athletes and/or clubs and fans.

Aspects of the invention relate to methods for automatically configuring a printer, such as a RFID printer with minimal effort from the user. According to one embodiment of the present invention, a user is able to automatically configure one or more of the following non-exhaustive list of printer settings by entering only an inlay designator and an inlay offset: a first TID position, an encode zone, a TID singulate, a read power, a write power, an encode while the web is moving flag, a stop to encode position and a maximum speed to encode while the web is moving.

Methods are provided for scanning and/or encoding a plurality of RFID tagged items. Such methods may involve inserting a plurality of RFID tagged items into an interior of an enclosure. A scanning or encoding signal is emitted within the enclosure and reflected off of an internal surface of the enclosure to contact at least one of the RFID tagged items. If an encoding signal is emitted, an RFID reader may transmit encoding information to the signal source (which may be an antenna) prior to emitting the encoding signal. On the other hand, if a scanning signal is emitted, information regarding the RFID tagged items may be transmitted to the RFID reader after the items have been scanned. According to one method, the same system may be used to either scan or encode a plurality of RFID tagged items.


High density read chambers are provided for scanning and/or encoding a plurality of RFID tagged items. Such chambers may include an enclosure with an interior defined by upper and lower surfaces, with a sidewall extending therebetween. An access (such as a door) may be associated with at least one of the surfaces or the sidewall, with the access being at least partially opened to access the interior of the enclosure from an outside location. The chamber further includes an antenna positioned within the interior of the enclosure and an RFID reader associated with the antenna. The RFID reader receives signals from and/or transmits signals to the antenna, while the antenna emits a scanning or encoding signal within the interior of the enclosure, with at least a portion of at least one of the surfaces or the sidewall including a signal-reflective material facing the interior of the enclosure.

A system and method for display of multiple data sets related to building systems is provided. A first building system includes a first sensor that generates first operating data corresponding to the first building system. A second building system includes a second sensor that generates second operating data corresponding to the second building system. A data server stores the first operating data and the second operating data. A user terminal accesses the first operating data and the second operating data, receives user input selecting the first operating data and the second operating data for display, and displays the first operating data and the second operating data together in a graphical display.

Embodiments provide an inkjet cartridge refilling system. The system may include a drill station configured to drill at least one refilling hole in an inkjet printer cartridge. The system may include an evacuation station configured to remove excess ink from the inkjet printer cartridge. In some embodiments, the excess ink is removed via a vacuum source. The system may also include a filling station configured to provide any of a plurality of inks into the cartridge. Some embodiments provide the ink to the inkjet cartridge via a hole drilled in the cartridge. Other embodiments provide the ink via inkjet nozzles of the inkjet printer cartridge. The system may also include a test station configured to test the refilled cartridge to determine whether it is functioning properly after being filled with ink.
