  • Publication number: 20170064332
    Abstract: A compression system for compressing a video received from an imaging device, the compression system including a transformation estimation device configured to estimate, based on pixel transformations between a first frame and a second frame of the video, a transformation matrix, an encoding device configured to encode the second frame as an increment with the first frame based on the transformation matrix generated by the transformation device, a compression device configured to compress the increments into compressed data, and a reconstruction device configured to reconstruct the first frame and the second frame using the transformation matrix generated by the transformation estimation device

  • Patent number: 9569874
    Abstract: A method and a system of stitching a plurality of views of a scene, the method including extracting points of interest in each view to include a point set from each of the plurality of image views of the scene, matching the points of interest and reducing an outlier, grouping the matched points of interest in a plurality of groups, determining a similarity transformation with a smallest rotation angle for each grouping of the match points, generating virtual matching points on a non-overlapping area of the plurality of image views, generating virtual matching points on an overlapping area for each of the plurality of image views, and calculating piecewise projective transformations for the plurality of image views.

  • Patent number: 9400939
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product for relating corresponding points in images with an overlapping scene. An example method includes generating transformed images of a target image using different image transformations for each of transformed images. Texture descriptors are extracted for feature points in the transformed images and a reference image. Matched feature points are identified and inliers from matched feature points are selected. An aligning transformation is generated using the inliers for at least one of the transformed images. A panorama image is created with the target image and reference image after the images are aligned.

  • Patent number: 8090413
    Abstract: A portable electronic device includes a main body, a slidable cover, a display panel, a sensor, and a controlling module. The slidable cover is slidably positioned on the main body. The display panel is positioned on the slidable cover. The sensor is configured to detect a position of the slidable cover relative to the main body. The controlling module is configured to output icons and data to the display panel, and to adjust an area of each icon displayed on the display panel according to a position, detected by the sensor, of the slidable cover relative to the main body.

  • Patent number: 8013351
    Abstract: A leak-proof LED (Light Emitting Diode) base structure includes a ceramic substrate and a ceramic reflection ring. The ceramic reflection ring is coupled to the ceramic substrate by a heat-resistant epoxy resin to prevent encapsulant filled in an LED base from flowing out through a junction between the ceramic reflection ring and the ceramic substrate. A groove for receiving an overflow of the heat-resistant epoxy resin is formed on a coupling surface of the ceramic reflection ring. The ceramic reflection ring has a polished reflecting surface for reflecting light emitted by an LED die so as to increase luminosity of the light emitted by the LED. A lens positioning portion is formed on the top of the polished reflecting surface for allowing a lens to be precisely aligned with the ceramic reflection ring, enhancing preciseness of lens assembly, and improving resultant optical configuration of the light emitted by the LED.

  • Publication number: 20070153301
    Abstract: An image magnification system and method thereof for selectively perform either a low-rating magnification process or a high-rating magnification process for an image captured by a digital camera is disclosed. The method of the invention comprises the steps of: reducing the image to reduced image data, performing a pre-magnification process for the reduced image data to generate pre-magnified image data, and selectively perform either the lowing-rating magnification process for the reduced image data or the high-rating magnification process for the pre-magnified image data.
