  • Publication number: 20190285823
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing an intermittent bonding type optical fiber ribbon which is capable of forming non-connection portions and intermittent connection portions between adjacent coated optical fibers formed into an optical fiber ribbon by performing a laser processing for the ribbon through irradiation with a pulse laser light, thereby making it possible to rapidly form the intermittent connection portions and the non-connection portions while maintaining high linear velocity of the coated optical fiber. The non-connection portions and the intermittent connection portions are formed in the obtained intermittent bonding type optical fiber ribbon through the irradiation with the pulse laser light, so the intermittent bonding type optical fiber ribbon becomes the intermittent bonding type optical fiber ribbon, which is capable of securing operability during collective connection and surely being subjected to an intermediate branching without damaging cable characteristics during high density mounting.

  • Patent number: 8502863
    Abstract: A cut-out process of image corresponding to an amount of optical axis deviation of left and right imaging optical systems is applied to left and right images acquired by the left and right imaging units to correct an optical axis deviation. In this case, the amount of optical axis deviation corresponding to a current focus position is acquired from the amounts of optical axis deviation detected in accordance with focus positions stored in advance in a storage unit (step S38). A cut-out process of image for stereoscopic display is applied to the left and right images based on the acquired amount of optical axis deviation (step S40). As a result, the optical axis deviation of the left and right imaging optical systems can be excellently corrected regardless of the focus position (subject distance).

  • Patent number: 8363091
    Abstract: Distortion correction with different correction accuracy is performed on images acquired in accordance with an image pick-up mode for a 3D moving image, a 3D still image, and the like, and an image cut-out process corresponding to an optical axis deviation amount of each of right and left photographing optical systems is also performed thereon, whereby optical axis deviation is corrected. In this case, an optical axis deviation amount corresponding to a current image pick-up mode is read out from among optical axis deviation amounts after distortion correction, the optical axis deviation amounts being stored in advance into an EEPROM at the time of adjustment before shipment and corresponding to respective image pick-up modes. Distortion correction corresponding to the current image pick-up mode is performed on right and left images acquired in accordance with the current image pick-up mode.
