  • Patent number: 12033358
    Abstract: A method and computer device for determining a spatial luminance distribution over at least one image of a scene illuminated by at least one illuminant (121) are provided. The image comprises RGB channels. A linear combination of the RGB channels is applied to determine the luminance distribution. The linear combination has a set of coefficients comprising a respective coefficient for each of the RGB channels. The coefficients are determined by identifying a spectral power distribution, SPD, of the at least one illuminant and performing a search to determine values of the set of coefficients that minimise a spectral mismatch between: a) the identified SPD weighted by the linear combination; and b) the identified SPD weighted by a luminosity function.

  • Patent number: 12028946
    Abstract: A LED driving arrangement has a main converter stage and a power commutation stage in parallel with an LED unit. An energy divert mode of operation is used during which a set current is provided to the LED unit, and the main converter stage is used to deliver a current larger than the set current. The power commutation stage is used to divert energy from the LED unit and return the diverted energy to an input to the main converter. The remaining set current is delivered to the LED unit. This enables deeper dimming than the dimming level applied to the main converter stage, but without requiring an additional switch mode power converter.
