  • Publication number: 20220150418
    Abstract: A system for stitching images together is disclosed. The images are sometimes referred to as frames, such as frames in a video sequence. The system comprises one or more imagers (e.g. cameras) that work in coordination with a matching amount of custom code modules. The system achieves image stitching using approximately one third the Field of View (FOV) of each imager (camera) and also by increasing the number of imagers to be above a predetermined threshold. The system displays these stitched images or frames on a computer monitor, either in a still-image context but also in a video-context. Normally these tasks would involve a great detail of computation, but the system achieves these effects while managing the computational load. In stitching the images together, it is sometimes necessary to introduce some image distortion (faceting) in the combined image. The system ensures no gaps in any captured view, and assists in achieving full situational awareness for a viewer.

  • Publication number: 20180124536
    Abstract: The present invention comprises a novel visual indicator that is capable of being installed on a standard microphone stand or boom with no interference to the normal operation of the microphone stand or boom. Standard microphone stands and booms that do not have a visual indicator built in can make use of this invention by adding visual signaling functionality to an existing microphone stand or boom.

  • Patent number: 9414719
    Abstract: This invention relates to home furnishings and accessories that utilize corner space of a shower stall as a support platform. The support platform may include a top support surface with two sides positioned to contact two perpendicular walls of the corner. A support frame may connect to the top support surface such that the bottom of the support frame and the top support surface are offset from one another. This offset configuration of the support platform may prevent the support frame from interfering with anything in the area directly below the top support surface.

  • Publication number: 20030189836
    Abstract: A boat trailer has a plurality of light sources housed within a sealed enclosure. The sources are electrically connected to a towing vehicle's lighting system and optically coupled through light condensing means to fiber-optic connecting fittings. Electrical circuitry for light source emitting elements is disposed within the enclosure and a multi-conductor electrical bulk-head connector is on the enclosure. A plurality of fiber-optic cables have environmentally securing end connectors. Fiber-optic cable tap devices function to extract a specific percentage of the light transmitted through a fiber-optic cable to a side outlet for distribution among a plurality of emitting apertures performing similar lighting functions. Light emitting apertures with light diffusion and control from the entering beam to the full area of the light emitting aperture is accomplished through lenses and/or critical angle reflectors.
