  • Publication number: 20200288059
    Abstract: An image processor includes a first converter to convert input images into images in a different coordinate system from that of the input images according to first conversion data based on a projection model, a position detector to detect a connecting position of the images converted by the converter, a corrector to correct the first conversion data on the basis of a result of the detection by the position detector, and a data generator to generate second conversion data for image synthesis from the conversion data corrected by the corrector on the basis of coordinate conversion, the second conversion data defining the conversion of the input images.

  • Publication number: 20190243110
    Abstract: An imaging device includes two imaging optical systems each of the imaging optical systems including a wide-angle lens having an angle of view wider than 180 degrees, and an imaging sensor configured to image an image by the wide-angle lens, so as to obtain an image in a solid angle of 4? radian by synthesizing the images by the respective imaging optical systems, wherein the wide-angle lens of each of the imaging optical systems includes, in order from an object side to an image side, a front group having a negative power, a reflection surface and a back group having a positive power, and is configured to bend an optical axis of the front group by the reflection surface at 90 degrees toward the back group.

  • Patent number: 9154723
    Abstract: A receiving terminal includes a data acquiring unit which acquires from the content server information that is required for the export of the content and that includes information about a capability required for the receiving terminal and information about a capability required for the removable medium. A propriety judgment unit compares the information about the capability required for the receiving terminal with information about a capability the receiving terminal possesses, compares the information about the capability required for the removable medium with information about a capability the removable medium possesses, and judges whether or not the export processing of the content can be performed. A control unit makes a processing relevant to a purchase of the content or to the export of the content perform, according to a judgment result by the propriety judgment unit.

  • Publication number: 20110110516
    Abstract: In a service enabling viewing of a rental content time-limit-managed by a copyright protection system (DRM) for a certain time period from first-time viewing in a video download service through a network, even possible viewing times for the content under the one and another copyright protection systems when the content is exported to a removable medium in conformity with the other system (CPS) before first-time viewing under DRM management are synchronized. When a content time-limit-managed by a copyright protection system is exported to a removable recording medium in conformity with a different content protection system, a URL for a management server is designated and a request is made of the designated management server to fix a possible viewing time if the URL of the management server is designated when the content is viewed for the first time in a content reproducer in conformity with the content protection system.

  • Patent number: 5513011
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for recording/reproducing video signals on or from storage media. A video signal is divided into k video blocks in a time-axis direction, wherein k is an integer not less than 2, finding a block skip interval s which is an integer satisfying an equation s=(pk+1)/n when p is an integer not less than 1 and n is an integer not less than 2. The k video blocks are interleaved in order ofi= s(j-1)}mod k+wherein i is an integer satisfying a relation 1.ltoreq.i.ltoreq.k and representing a block number of the video signal, and j is an integer satisfying a relation 1.ltoreq.j.ltoreq.k and representing an allocation block number on a storage medium (FIGS. 2(A) and 2(B)). And, thus interleaved video blocks are allocated on the storage medium (312).
