  • Patent number: 11895446
    Abstract: A control device controls projection by a plurality of projection units having different projection ranges. A control unit projects, by the plurality of projection units a first image in which a content is disposed on a first projection range having the projection ranges of the plurality of projection units. An acquisition unit acquires first attribute information associated with the content and indicating whether an aspect ratio is made to be changeable or is maintained in a case in which a size of the content is adjusted. The control unit projects a second image in which at least a part of the contents is disposed on a second projection range, and, in a state in which projection is performed by a projection unit except a part of the plurality of projection units, adjusts the size of the content in generation of the second image based on the first attribute information.
