  • Publication number: 20150130848
    Abstract: A technique to output map information to appropriately match imaged images is to be provided. An information processing device includes an input unit that inputs image information acquired by imaging; an output unit that outputs map information; and a control unit that controls the input unit and the output unit, wherein the control unit performs control, according to depth distance information acquired from the image information, to vary the downscale ratio of the map information outputted from the output unit.

  • Publication number: 20100150519
    Abstract: For smoothing motion of an video during time of a special reproduction, in a video reproducing apparatus, for outputting an input video signal while holding it temporarily therein, comprises a buffering portion (100), and a video speed converter portion (101), for producing an interpolation frame responding to motion of video with using a plural number of video frames, which are outputted from the buffering portion, and thereby outputting a video signal, a reproduction speed of which is converted by combining the interpolation frame and the video frame from the buffering portion. And, a time distance of video frames of the video signal, which is outputted from the buffering portion, as well as, a producing process and a combining process, for producing an interpolation frame within the video speed converter portion, are controlled depending on a control signal indicating a reproduction speed.

  • Publication number: 20090059067
    Abstract: A motion vector detection apparatus is disclosed capable of detecting accurate motion vectors from between a previous frame of image and the presently displayed frame of image even in edge regions of the frames where inaccurate motion vectors would normally tend to be detected. A motion vector-detecting portion reads in an image signal from the signal input portion as well as image signals entered through first through third frame memories. Processing for detecting motion vectors is performed, based on four frames entered in synchronism to the motion vector-detecting portion out of the frames forming the image signals. Vectors produced between the image signal from the first frame memory delayed by one frame relative to the image signal from the signal input portion and the image signal from the second frame memory delayed by two frames relative to the image signal from the signal input portion are detected as motion vectors.
