  • Patent number: 10192326
    Abstract: A compression method includes simplifying a mesh that represents a textured 3D-object by replacing polygons in the mesh with new ones that have broader faces. The method includes identifying adjacent polygons with different textures and adding vertices at the same positions as two vertices in the polygons. This creates two new edges and an intermediate polygon interposed between the two adjacent polygons. The new edges have zero length and the new polygon has zero area.

  • Patent number: 10192518
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method and display device for displaying which relates to a display field. The display method comprises steps of: converting a three-channel data of each of pixels in a target image to be displayed to a four-channel data; calculating a color different between the four-channel data after being converted and the three-channel data before being converted; for a pixel the color difference of which meets a preset adjustment condition, decreasing a ratio of a numerical value of a newly added channel in the four-channel data after being converted with respect to the three-channel data before being converted to get an adjusted four-channel data, and displaying by utilizing the adjusted four-channel data; and for the remaining pixels, displaying by utilizing the four-channel data after being converted. The color difference before and after image conversion may be decreased by utilizing the present invention.

  • Patent number: 10134360
    Abstract: By converting a first color space to a second color space, using a two-dimensional lookup table in said second color space, and converting from said second color space to said first color space, it may be possible to use one or more two-dimensional lookup tables (LUTs) to do a task conventionally handled by three-dimensional lookup tables. This may reduce storage requirements and memory bandwidth requirements in some embodiments. In general a color pixel with N color components can be processed with n number of M dimensional LUT where M<N and n is some chosen positive integer number.

  • Patent number: 10134198
    Abstract: Image compensation for an occluding direct-view augmented reality system is described. In one or more embodiments, an augmented reality apparatus includes an emissive display layer for presenting emissive graphics to an eye of a user and an attenuation display layer for presenting attenuation graphics between the emissive display layer and a real-world scene to block light of the real-world scene from the emissive graphics. A light region compensation module dilates an attenuation graphic based on an attribute of an eye of a viewer, such as size of a pupil, to produce an expanded attenuation graphic that blocks additional light to compensate for an unintended light region. A dark region compensation module camouflages an unintended dark region with a replica graphic in the emissive display layer that reproduces an appearance of the real-world scene in the unintended dark region. A camera provides the light data used to generate the replica graphic.

  • Patent number: 10134190
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods and systems for rendering augmented reality objects based on user heights are provided. Height data of a user of an augmented reality device can be determined. The height data relates to a viewing perspective from an eye level of the user. Placement data for an augmented reality object is generated based on a constraint configuration that is associated with the augmented reality object for user-height-based rendering. The constraint configuration includes rules that support generating placement data for rendering augmented reality objects based on the user height data. The augmented reality object is rendered based on the placement data. Augmented reality objects are rendered in a real world scene, such that, the augmented reality object is personalized for each user during an augmented reality experience. In shared experiences, with multiple users viewing a single augmented reality object, the object can be rendered based on a particular user's height.

  • Patent number: 10115217
    Abstract: Embodiments are directed to rendering animations in a multi-layered animation system and to rendering an element with an animation that uses multiple levels of animation properties. In one scenario, a computer system establishes an operating system (OS)-specified animation value for at least one property of a user interface (UI) element that is to be animated. The computer system receives a user-specified animation value for at least one property of the UI element that is to be animated and determines, based on the UI element property, how to combine the OS-specified animation value and the user-specified animation value. The computer system then combines the OS-specified animation value and the user-specified value for the UI element in the determined manner and renders the animation for the element using the combined animation values.

  • Patent number: 10074201
    Abstract: A system and method for coordinating session replay of spatiotemporal data and presentation of a graphical representation of said data. A disclosed video display system is capable of providing, in a displayed image, i) a diagrammatic representation and ii) a first graphical representation. The graphical elements in the first graphical representation can be dependent on the geolocations of one or more tracked objects, such as wireless terminals, that are represented in the spatiotemporal data and that are presented in the displayed image. The video display system can provide, for example, a map of a geographic area as the diagrammatic representation and a pie chart as the first graphical representation. A user of the system is able to control playback of the spatiotemporal data that are being presented on the map and to observe the pie chart being updated over time by the system during playback of the data.
