  • Patent number: 10847078
    Abstract: A storage device stores dither patterns composed of a three-dimensional block consisting of the number H of dots in a horizontal direction×the number V of lines in a vertical direction×the number F in a frame direction. Each value from a minimum value to a maximum value of dither values of n bits is written in each address of the storage device. When each value is written into the storage device, processing of obtaining a spatiotemporal density value indicating a degree of density of an address in which a dither value has already been written in a three-dimensional predetermined area centered on each of the addresses in which a new dither value is writable, and processing of selecting an address having the smallest spatiotemporal density value among the addresses in which a new dither value is writable and writing a dither value are repeated.

  • Patent number: 10846889
    Abstract: Color handles are generated based on digital image color gradients using machine learning. In order to train a neural network of a generator module of a GAN system, a training digital image is used by the neural network of the generator module to generate a candidate color handle. The discriminator module of the GAN system then compares the candidate color handle with a ground truth color handle of the training digital image using a loss function as part of machine learning, and uses a result of this comparison to train the neural network of the generator module.

  • Patent number: 10818043
    Abstract: An example method for neural network based interpolation of image textures includes training a global encoder network to generate global latent vectors based on training texture images, and training a local encoder network to generate local latent tensors based on the training texture images. The example method further includes interpolating between the global latent vectors associated with each set of training images, and interpolating between the local latent tensors associated with each set of training images. The example method further includes training a decoder network to generate reconstructions of the training texture images and to generate an interpolated texture based on the interpolated global latent vectors and the interpolated local latent tensors. The training of the encoder and decoder networks is based on a minimization of a loss function of the reconstructions and a minimization of a loss function of the interpolated texture.

  • Patent number: 10762696
    Abstract: A method of operating a graphic processor performing sampling-based rendering involves intermediate rendering by shading-processing some fragments of a first frame by using a first sample candidate map having a first pattern. Further intermediate rendering may also be performed by shading-processing some fragments of a second frame by using a first sample candidate map having a second pattern. Other fragments of the second frame may be additionally sampled, where these other fragments may be determined based on comparing a shading processing result of the first frame and a shading processing result of the second frame. Final rendering may be performed by shading-processing the additionally sampled fragments.

    Abstract: A method for mixed color correction is provided. Based on the variations of the chromaticity coordinates required for adjusting between the target color and the actually-measured color, variations of illuminances of one or two of RGB of the three colors are calculated for adjusting the actually-measured color to achieve the variations of the chromaticity coordinates required for adjusting according to the correlation between the chromaticity coordinates and the tristimulus values, until the required variations of chromaticity coordinate are within a required range. This method can quickly and accurately correct and adjust the actually-measured color, guarantee the consistency of lamp colors, and is convenient for application.
