  • Patent number: 10614609
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus of processing 360-degree virtual reality images are disclosed. According to one method, a 2D (two-dimensional) frame is divided into multiple blocks. The multiple blocks are encoded or decoded using quantization parameters by restricting a delta quantization parameter to be within a threshold for any two blocks corresponding to two neighboring blocks on a 3D sphere. According to another embodiment, one or more guard bands are added to one or more edges that are discontinuous in the 2D frame but continuous in the 3D sphere. Fade-out process is applied to said one or more guard bands to generate one or more faded guard bands. At the decoder side, the reconstructed 2D frame is generated from the decoded extended 2D frame by cropping said one or more decoded faded guard bands or by blending said one or more decoded faded guard bands and reconstructed duplicated areas.

  • Patent number: 10587857
    Abstract: A video processing method includes receiving a bitstream, processing the bitstream to obtain at least one syntax element from the bitstream, and decoding the bitstream to generate a current decoded frame having a rotated 360-degree image/video content represented in a 360-degree Virtual Reality (360 VR) projection format. The at least one syntax element signaled via the bitstream indicates rotation information of content-oriented rotation that is involved in generating the rotated 360-degree image/video content, and includes a first syntax element. When the content-oriented rotation is enabled, the first syntax element indicates a rotation degree along a specific rotation axis.

    Abstract: Representative systems and methods for preventing or otherwise reducing extreme-ultraviolet-induced material property changes (e.g., layer thickness shrinkage) include one or more thermal treatments to at least partially stabilize a material forming a material layer disposed over a substrate prior to extreme ultraviolet (EUV) exposure (e.g., wavelengths spanning about 124 nm to about 10 nm) attendant to photolithographic processing. Representative systems and methods provide for reduction of average compressive stress in a material layer after thermal treatment prior to extreme EUV photolithographic patterning. Representative thermal treatments may include one or more annealing processes, ultraviolet (UV) radiation treatments, ion implantations, ion bombardments, plasma treatments, surface baking treatments, surface coating treatments, surface ashing treatments, or pulsed laser treatments.
