  • Publication number: 20140314336
    Abstract: A distorted image (S) is acquired through a photographing operation using a wide-angle lens or an omnidirectional mirror. A cutting reference point (P) for cutting a partial cut region from the distorted image is set. The cut region is set according to the cutting reference point. An eye vector (n) corresponding to the cutting reference point is set with a photographing viewpoint of the distorted image as a base point. The cut region is shifted by a predetermined distance from the cutting reference point. The shifted cut region is transformed through image transformation to transform the distorted image into a planar regular image (T?) according to the eye vector. The shifted cut region (E?) is transformed.

  • Publication number: 20140221306
    Abstract: Regarding Diquafosol ophthalmic solution comprising a chelating agent, formation of insoluble precipitates found in Diquafosol ophthalmic solution during its storage, as well as deterioration of the filtration performance in the course of production (filtration sterilization), have been inhibited. Further, in Diquafosol ophthalmic solution comprising a chelating agent, enhancement of preservative effectiveness has been confirmed. Accordingly, the present invention provides Diquafosol ophthalmic solution having physicochemical properties that are stable during the courses of production and distribution as well as the course of storage by a patient. Particularly in the course of production, the solution can be subjected to efficient filtration sterilization. Moreover, the solution has excellent preservative effectiveness.

  • Patent number: 8515130
    Abstract: To provide a conference system, a monitoring system, an image processing apparatus, an image processing method and A non-transitory computer-readable storage medium that stores a computer-image processing program capable of accurately and effectively recognizing an object based on a fisheye-distorted image photographed at a wide angle. When an instruction of selecting an arbitrary point Ci(ui, vi) of a 2D-viewable planar regular image generated based on a fisheye-distorted image S photographed by a fisheye lens is received, point Si(xi, yi) on the fisheye-distorted image S is calculated as a coordinate corresponding to Ci(ui, vi), and a pixel information group configuring the planar regular image is newly generated based on a pixel information group configuring the fisheye-distorted image S.

  • Patent number: 8363089
    Abstract: Any given part is cut out from a distorted circular image photographed by use of a fisheye lens and converted into a planar regular image with less distortion. A virtual sphere H having a radius R on a distorted circular image S on an XY plane is defined, thereby allowing a user to designate a cut-out center point P, a magnification m, and a planar inclination angle ?. A visual line vector n passing through an intersecting point Q immediately above the point P is determined to define an UV orthogonal coordinate system having an orientation depending on the angle ? on a plane orthogonal to a visual line vector n at a point G in which a distance between two points OG is given as m·R. The UV orthogonal coordinate system is curved along the side face C of a “virtual cylindrical column in which the point G forms one point on the side face to have a straight line V? parallel to the V axis and also passing through the point O as a central axis,” thereby defining the UV curved coordinate system.
