  • Patent number: 9524029
    Abstract: The present invention is to appropriately determine a gesture operation detected to perform data processing according thereto. In the present invention, a CPU judges a processing status at the time of the detection of a gesture operation performed on a touch panel, and after determining its gesture operation type according to the processing status, performs data processing according to the operation type. In this case, the CPU determines and evaluates a gesture operation type for each processing status, and updates values (evaluation accumulation values) of a flick priority pointer and a tap priority pointer. Then, based on these values of the flick priority pointer and the tap priority pointer, the CPU determines one of the gesture operation types (flick operation/tap operation).

  • Publication number: 20070253619
    Abstract: Even if a calculation result is out of range (e.g., below 0 or over 255 in the case of an 8-bit color signal) of a destination color signal when a color conversion table is generated by matrix calculation, clipping (non-reversible operation) is not performed, and a constant is evenly added to the matrix calculation result irrespectively of whether the value range is exceeded or not, to fit the calculation result in a predetermined data type and store as a table value. Further, subtraction of the added constant is defined as an operation immediately after table interpolation, to obtain a final correct color conversion output.
