  • Patent number: 8559751
    Abstract: The present invention provides an improved method and device for digital motion blur removal by using motion information extracted from a sequence of images captured immediately before the image to be corrected was captured. In particular, the invention includes estimating (56) motion information of the previous sequence of images and analyzing them based on motion estimation techniques and then extrapolating (58) the motion of the image to be corrected based on the motion estimation in order to remove (62) the motion blur effects in the desired captured image. The various types of devices which may implement the method of the present invention will thereby display (64) blur free digital images.

  • Patent number: 7180946
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a filter circuit for a set of original data (X0–X7) able to implement in series the steps of discrete transformation (DCT2), correction (ZER) of odd transformed data and inverse discrete transformation (IDCT2). The filter circuit takes advantage of the fact that the paths corresponding to the even and odd transformed data are completely separate with the exception of a first processing stage (ST1) of the discrete transformation and a last processing stage (ST8) of the inverse discrete transformation in order to connect a first half of the data issuing from the first stage to the last processing stage. The implementation of the filter circuit is thus simplified, both making the circuit less expensive and giving it a lower power consumption. For optimized implementation, the filter circuit functions in differential mode.

  • Patent number: 7110029
    Abstract: A data processing arrangement comprises an input circuit [INP], an interconnection network [ICN] and a data processing circuit [PRC]. The input circuit [INP] forms successive groups of data [GRP] and, moreover, generates a basic control data item [BCD] and an additional control data item [SCD] for each group of data [GRP]. A basic control data item [BCD] indicates for each data item one of a plurality of terminals [1–4] to which the data item should be applied. An additional control data item [SCD] indicates for each data item if this data item is valid [+] or not valid [?]. The interconnection network [ICN] applies the successive groups of data to the terminals [1–4] in dependence on the basic control data item [BCD] and on the additional control data item [SCD]. The interconnection network [ICN] applies a data item to the terminal indicated by the basic control data item [BCD] if the data item is valid [+].

  • Patent number: 6925118
    Abstract: Data processing method is disclosed for processing a series of temporal processing steps [S]. The method comprises a processing step [S(n)] that generates a result [O(n)] on the basis of a set of results [O(n-1), O(n-2), . . . O(n-m)] of certain preceding processing steps [S(n-1), S(n-2), . . . S(n-m)], wherein the processing step [S] is performed in two sub-steps: a preparation sub-step [SA] and finishing sub-step [SB]. In the preparation sub-step [SA] an intermediate result [I] is determined on the basis of an incomplete set of results in which, at least the result of the nearest preceding processing step is missing. In the finishing sub-step [SB] the result [O] is determined on the basis of the intermediate result [I] and the result of the nearest preceding processing step and other results which are missing in the incomplete set of results.
