In Technology Center 2600, we saw significant gains in three Groups – 2630 Digital and Optical Communications, which grew almost 33%, 2650 Videophones and Telephonic Communications; Audio Signals; Digital Audio Data Processing; Linguistics, Speech Processing and Audio Compression, which grew almost 26%, and 2660 Digital Cameras; Image Analysis; Applications; Pattern Recognition; Color and Compression; Enhancement and Transformation, which grew over 23%. A less significant gain of just over 9% was realized by Group 2640 Telecommunications: Analog Radio Telephone; Satellite and Power Control; Transceivers, Measuring and Testing; Bluetooth; Receivers and Transmitters; Equipment Details.
The smallest gains of just over 2% and almost 3% respectively were in Group 2670 Facsimile; Printer; Color; Halftone; Scanner; Computer Graphic Processing; 3-D Animation; Display Color; Attributes; Object Processing; Hardware and Memory and Group 2680 Telemetry / Code Generation; Vehicles / System Alarms; Selective Comms; Dynamic Storage Systems; Mechanical parts of Disk Drives; Signal and Control Processing in Disk Drives.
Among those Groups that saw a decline from 2011 to 2021, the largest was experienced by Group 2620 Selective Visual Display Systems at almost 44%. The next decline, just over 25%, was experienced by Group 2615 Computer Graphic Processing. Next was a decline of just over 12% experienced by Group 2610 Computer Graphic Processing, 3D Animation, Display Color Attribute, Object Proc, Hardware & Memory. The smallest decline of almost 8% was experienced by Group 2690 Selective Visual Display Systems.
As we moved into Technology Center 2800 there are a smaller number of Groups, with none experiencing gains or declines as large as we have seen in some of the other Technology Centers.
