  • Publication number: 20220188971
    Abstract: A computer implemented method for warping multi-field color virtual content for sequential projection includes obtaining first and second color fields having different first and second colors. The method also includes determining a first time for projection of a warped first color field. The method further includes determining a second time for projection of a warped second color field. Moreover, the method includes predicting a first pose at the first time and predicting a second pose at the second time. In addition, the method includes generating the warped first color field by warping the first color field based on the first pose. The method also includes generating the warped second color field by warping the second color field based on the second pose.

  • Publication number: 20220099977
    Abstract: A thin transparent layer can be integrated in a head mounted display device and disposed in front of the eye of a wearer. The thin transparent layer may be configured to output light such that light is directed onto the eye to create reflections therefrom that can be used, for example, for glint based tracking. The thin transparent layer can be configured to reduced obstructions in the field of the view of the user.

  • Patent number: 9818336
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods, apparatus, and computer readable media for generating images on a display using a dithering process that takes into account an uneven spacing of available gray scale values in at least one color subfield used to generate the images. The dithering process includes generating a set of initial color subfields, a set of quantized color subfields, and a set of final color subfields, which are then output on the display. The quantized color subfields an the final color subfields are derived based at least in part on the uneven spacing of gray scale values in at least one of the final color subfields.

  • Patent number: 9613587
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for enhancing display viewability in high ambient conditions without excessive increase in power consumption. In one aspect, a controller associated with the display device can be configured to obtain an indication of ambient light conditions from an ambient light sensor or from a host device hosting the display device. Upon receiving an image frame, the controller can derive a set of color subfields and determine a bit-depth value for each color subfield based on the obtained indication of current ambient light conditions and mapping data which maps ranges of ambient light to respective bit-depth values on a color subfield by color subfield basis. The controller can then generate a number of subframes for each color subfield based on the respective determined bit-depth value and cause the generated subframes to be displayed.

  • Publication number: 20160351104
    Abstract: Systems, methods and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, of this disclosure allow for forming an image frame on a display device. In one aspect, a controller associated with a display device can be configured to correct for output white point shift due to variation, across separate color subfields of an image frame, in the respective number of subframes or the respective subframe weights. The controller can determine aggregate subframe weights for at least two color subfields and adjust at least one display parameter based on the determined aggregate subframe weights, to shift the output white point towards a white point of a target color gamut. The display parameter(s) can include a duty cycle of a color subfield, tristimulus coordinates of light used to illuminate a color subfield or gamut mapping function. The controller can display the image frame according to the adjusted display parameter(s).
