  • Patent number: 10354617
    Abstract: A luminescence shock avoidance algorithm selectively limits the brightness level of a display device when the display device is activated in a dark environment to prevent the temporary vision impairment that can occur when a display device is activated in a dark environment. The algorithm receives the state of the display (e.g. on or in standby mode), and can optionally receive an ambient lighting value from an ambient light sensor and a user-selectable manual brightness adjustment setting to determine whether luminescence shock avoidance should even be triggered, and if it is triggered, how much should the brightness level of the display be limited.

    Abstract: A terminal provided in the present disclosure, acquires values of one or more monitoring parameters. The terminal sets, according to the monitoring parameter, a blue light output value of a to-be-adjusted pixel displayed on a screen of the terminal when a value of at least one of the monitoring parameters meets a preset rule corresponding to the monitoring parameter, where the blue light output value is less than an original blue light output value of the to-be-adjusted pixel. The screen of the terminal displays the to-be-adjusted pixel according to the blue light output value such that the terminal can set, according to the monitoring parameter, the blue light output value of the to-be-adjusted pixel displayed on the screen of the terminal, and therefore the blue light can be adjusted intelligently, and an objective of vision protection without affecting user experience is achieved.

  • Patent number: 10325398
    Abstract: Techniques and systems for applying an ink effect to the drawing of an ink stroke can include absolute age for a digital ink stroke. A digital ink system can identify a reference time from which to represent a current time. The system can generate an absolute age of each ink point of the ink stroke based on the reference time. Then the ink effect can be applied to the ink stroke with a rhythm derived from when the ink stroke was originally drawn by using the absolute age of each ink point. In some cases, the rhythm can be the same rhythm as when the ink stroke was originally drawn. In other cases, the rhythm can be modified based on the rhythm the ink stroke was originally drawn. For example, the original rhythm may be accelerating, decelerating, skewed, compressed, affine, or non-affine.
