  • Patent number: 10401950
    Abstract: Disclosed is an electronic device that is detachably coupled to a frame of a head-mounted device that can be mounted on a head of a user. The electronic device can consecutively perform tracking of the user's head using a sensor, when sensor data is abnormally received. Thereafter, if the sensor data is normally received from the head mounted device, the electronic device can consecutively perform the head tracking, enabling the user's action and the visual information to coincide with each other, thereby reducing inconvenience or misoperation which may occur in the case of the conventional head-mounted device.

  • Patent number: 6329998
    Abstract: A multiple screen HDTV (High Definition television) processor includes two detectors and a background screen generator. The first detector generates an output signal when format change is detected. The second detector generates an output signal when change in the selected multiple screen is detected. Either output signals activate the background screen generator to delete residuary screen portions caused by different screen sizes and aspect ratios in a multiple screen generation system.
