  • Patent number: 10345926
    Abstract: An inclination derivation device of a pointer of a pen shape, is discussed with the pointer including a first electrode installed at an end of an axis and a second electrode installed around the axis. The inclination derivation device includes a sensor of a plane shape that detects a position of the first electrode and a position of the second electrode, and a control portion. The control portion includes a look-up table (LUT) in which a corresponding relation of a value based on a difference between the position of the first electrode and the position of the second electrode, and a compensation value that becomes a base of an inclination of the axis of the pointer is registered; an input value calculation portion that calculates and inputs the value based on the difference to the LUT; and an inclination derivation portion that derives the inclination from the compensation value output from the LUT.

  • Patent number: 8701154
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus including a user-information analyzing unit which analyzes user information and calculates a variation in parameter. A procedure selecting unit classifies, based on the calculated amount, the user into a predetermined group, and acquires, from a procedure database, a procedure corresponding to the group of the user. A basic part producing unit records, in a product's ROM, various set values. Based on the result of analysis by the user-information analyzing unit, a unique part producing unit records an initial parameter value in the product's ROM. A system controller controls a storage unit to store a characteristic amount extracted by an image-characteristic-amount extracting unit and setting conditions on the image processing which are supplied from a remote control signal receiving circuit so that both are associated to each other.

  • Patent number: 8284843
    Abstract: An information searching system includes an encoding apparatus and a searching apparatus. The encoding apparatus inputs information to be stored, encodes the input information in layers, and then stores the resulting per-layer encoding information in a database. The searching apparatus acquires information that has been thus encoded in layers in order from the upper layers thereof, compares the encoded information for an acquired search query to the encoded information for potential matches on a per-layer basis, decodes the information for the potential matches that resemble the search query on the basis of the comparison results, and then outputs the decoded information for the potential matches that resemble the search query. In so doing, searches are conducted rapidly and with reduced computational load.

  • Patent number: 8106957
    Abstract: An image signal generated by a CCD image sensor is processed by the block-generating section 28 provided in an image-signal processing section 25. A class tap and a prediction tap are thereby extracted. The class tap is output to an ADRC process section 29, and the prediction tap is output to an adaptation process section 31. The ADRC process section 29 performs an ADRC process on the input image signal, generating characteristic data. A classification process section 30 generates a class code corresponding to the characteristic data thus generated and supplies the same to an adaptation process section 31. The adaptation process section 31 reads, from a coefficient memory 32, the set of prediction coefficients which corresponds to the class code. The set of prediction coefficients and the prediction tap are applied, thereby generating all color signals, i.e., R, G and B signals, at the positions of the pixels which are to be processed.

  • Patent number: 7970968
    Abstract: This invention relates to an information-signal-processing apparatus etc. for performing a series of processing pieces by using plural functional blocks in response to any information signals, in which functions can be easily upgraded through version upgrading of the functional blocks. Control block 110 issues a common command and transmits it to a control block 120 via a control bus 111. Control I/F 120 of the functional block 120 converts this common command into an intra-functional-block command if the common command is the common command related to its own functional block, and supplies the functional section 120e with it. This enables the functional block 120 to operate adaptively in accordance with the common command. When performing upgrade of the functions by the version updating of a predetermined function block, the common command need not be changed.

  • Patent number: 7602442
    Abstract: A plurality of processing portions sequentially performs a plurality of processing operation on an information signal. In this case, the plurality of processing portions is provided with a control-command-added information signal to which control commands are added for controlling the processing piece to be performed by some or all of the plurality of processing portions, for each predetermined unit of the information signal. The processing portions respectively separate the control command and the information signal from the control-command-added information signal. The information signal thus separated is then processed on the basis of the separated control command for controlling the processing to be performed by this processing portion. The separated control command is added to the post-processing information signal for each predetermined unit thereof, thereby determining a control-command-added information signal to be output.
