  • Publication number: 20210295481
    Abstract: In a video image recording device, when a scene outside of a vehicle is recorded through a wind shield, a scene on the inside of a vehicle room is reflected by the wind shield and reflection glare is produced. In order to reduce the influence of this reflection glare, the video image recording device is provided with a video image capture device which obtains a first data on a general video image and a second data on a predetermined part in a vehicle room, wherein the general video image is with a reflection video image, of the predetermined part and also with a transmission video image, a graphical image conversion device which converts the second data into a third data, the third data corresponding to a reflection video image by the wind shield, and a graphical image correction device which corrects the first data based on the third data.

  • Patent number: 6754393
    Abstract: Encoding efficiency is enhanced by actively combining a plurality of encoding methods. A picture element memory receives and stores picture elements within a predetermined range. A mode determinator selects an encoding mode based upon a reference picture element. A first encoding section and a second encoding section predicts the value of the encoded picture element, determines whether the prediction is correct, and then encodes the value of the encoding picture element based on the determination result and outputs a codeword for the encoding picture element. An encoding controller selectively operates the first encoding section and the second encoding section based upon one of the specific encoding modes and the other encoding mode other than the specific encoding mode selected by the mode determinator.

  • Patent number: 6636641
    Abstract: By combining a plurality of encoding methods actively, an encoding efficiency is enhanced. The first encoder encodes a result of determination whether a prediction error is zero or not. The second encoder encodes the prediction error unless the prediction error is zero. The third encoder encodes the prediction error regardless of whether the prediction error is zero or not. The mode determinator determines the encoding mode, and the encoding controller selectively operates the first encoder, the second encoder, and the third encoder according to the encoding mode determined.

  • Patent number: 6223027
    Abstract: An image data transmission system includes mobile transceivers having memories storing image data that is organized in sequential blocks. The mobile transceivers sequentially pass by a stationary transceiver and pause proximate the stationary transceiver. While pausing, a mobile transceiver transmits a block of the image data to the stationary transceiver, which receives and stores the transmitted data. Data transmission is interrupted by movement of the formerly pausing mobile transceiver. The stationary transceiver transmits a pointer signal to a paused mobile transceiver indicating which blocks of image data have been stored in the stationary transceiver so that the mobile transceivers transmit the blocks sequentially until all blocks have been received and stored by the stationary transceiver. The apparatus may be employed in a mass transit system, such as a subway or commuter train, in which the mobile transceivers are mounted in train cars and the stationary transceiver is located at a station.
