  • Publication number: 20230274464
    Abstract: Low bitrate encoding of HDR-coded content with codecs that achieve compression by lowering the precision of encoding can result in significant loss of color fidelity. The problem stems from the logarithmic nature of the HDR encoding and consequent excessive quantization of color components of HDR-coded material. The loss is ameliorated by applying a saturation emphasis function that boosts color values of the HDR-coded material prior to compression. In various implementations the saturation emphasis function is a monotonically increasing function that preferentially boosts lower color values. Following compression and subsequent decompression, the color boost is reversed. In video post-production workflows proxies may be compressed to very low bitrates. For such workflows, the described methods significantly reduce codec-induced color artifacts in the decompressed proxy, thus restoring the ability of editors to make valid technical decisions based on the proxy during post-production.

  • Publication number: 20230144941
    Abstract: According to one aspect, it becomes possible to easily modify a 3D object which is displayed in a virtual reality space. A method is performed by a computer configured to be communicable with a position detection device that includes a drawing surface and that, in operation, detects a position of an electronic pen on the drawing surface. The method includes rendering, in a virtual reality space, a first object that is a 3D object, rendering, near the first object, a display surface that is a 3D object, rendering, on the display surface, a 3D line that is a 3D object generated based on the position of the electronic pen on the drawing surface, wherein the position of the electronic pen is detected by the position detection device, and outputting the first object, the display surface, and the 3D line, which are the 3D objects, to a display.

  • Publication number: 20230052545
    Abstract: Described are compositions, in particular lyophilizates, containing proteolytic enzymes, and methods for producing the compositions. Typically these compositions contain one or more proteases with collagenase activity and a neutral protease, for example, thermolysin. The compositions are free of acetate salts. Surprisingly, such compositions can be dissolved in water more rapidly than lyophilized protease mixtures of the state of the art.

  • Publication number: 20220375386
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method, a computer program comprising instructions and an apparatus for controlling the image reproduction of a display apparatus. The disclosure furthermore relates to a display apparatus in which a method according to the disclosure is realized. In a first step, the display apparatus is switched from a first operating mode with emission into a large field of view to a second operating mode with emission into a restricted field of view. Moreover, parameters are acquired which influence a contrast of the image reproduction that is perceivable by an observer situated outside the restricted field of view. A contrast for the image reproduction is adapted on the basis of the acquired parameters. Optionally, the image reproduction of the display apparatus can be interrupted if an impermissible head position of the observer is ascertained.
