  • Patent number: 5926575
    Abstract: A processing of causing a face image of a person A as an object of encoding to be deformed in correspondence to expression and motion of a face image of a person B as a reference image. The expression change and the motion from the model wire-frame are treated as fitting information, and this fitting information is made WA1 with respect to a first image of an object for photographing, while is made Wb1 with respect to a second image of an object for photographing. For example, the fitting information from a model wire-frame W00 to an image A1 is Wa1, and the fitting information from the image A1 to the model wire-frame W00 is Wa1. Next, an image A2 into which the first image A1 is caused to be deformed by a texture Ta1 of the first image A1 and a wire-frame function Wb1 Wa1 is obtained through composition.

  • Patent number: 5636296
    Abstract: A moving image with a plurality of continuous frames is processed by using a plurality of image processing units (5-1 through 5-n), which operate simultaneously. A frame identification designator (4) attaches an identification number cyclically to each frame of the input image signal. A frame identification selector (6) in each image processing unit inputs an image frame selectively based upon the identification number, and transfers the selected frame to a corresponding image processing module. The image processing units (5-1 through 5-n) typically carry out either the same processing on respective image frames, or a plurality of processing to a single frame. An additional processor network (8) may be coupled with the image processing units for high-level processing including recognition and/or understanding of an image.

  • Patent number: 5170227
    Abstract: A method for producing a mask ROM having an array of memory cells in which pn junctions obtained by introducing P-type impurities by ion implantation onto the surface of an N-type electrically conductive layers obtained in turn by introducing N-type impurities into the polysilicon layers are formed as memory cells in a matrix configuration. The polysilicon layers that are to be rendered into the N-type electrically conductive layers are previously monocrystallized by laser annealing. In this manner, the N-type electrically conductive layers into which P-type impurities are introduced by ion implantation at the time of formation of the pn junction are turned into a monocrystalline layer so that the surface of the N-type electrically conductive layers may be uniformly and easily converted into the P-type by this ion implantation. In short, the junction surface of the pn junction used as the memory cell becomes uniform.

  • Patent number: 5117287
    Abstract: A moving image is coded through a waveform coding predictor (2), and a model-based coding predictor (3) which is mainly applicable to a head portion of a person, the coded outputs of said two predictors are compared (5) with an input current image for each block element which has for instance 8.times.8 or 16.times.16 pixels. A block element coded for the smaller difference from an input current image is taken, and is transmitted to a receiving side through differential coding (6,7). As the information compression ratio is high, a moving image can be transmitted through conventional telephone line, or a narrow band circuit.

  • Patent number: 4908862
    Abstract: In an encoding system responsive to a sequence of coefficient signals which results from a predetermined linear transform and which is divided into a sequence of blocks, anterior processing is carried out prior to quantization about the coefficient signals in each block to determine a significant area of the coefficient signals by comparing each level of the coefficient signals with a threshold level. Only the coefficient signals within the significant area are judged to be valid and produced as a sequence of significant coefficient signals from a classifying circuit (20) to be quantized by a quantizer (15) into a sequence of quantized signals. The quantized signal sequence is subjected to posterior processing to produce a sequence of encoded signals. The significant area may be decided by the use of a selected one of zone detection, zigzag scanning, and adaptive scanning.

  • Patent number: 4805017
    Abstract: A motion compensation difference interframe or intra-frame coding system includes a block data redundancy compression and coding unit, a PIXEL data coding unit and a prediction data generator unit. The block data redundancy compression and coding unit codes a motion compensated (MC) difference between an input image in a block and a motion predicted image from the prediction data generator unit, and transmits coded data to a receiver. The PIXEL data coding unit receives an error between the MC difference and a decoded MC difference from the block data redundancy compression and coding unit, rearranges the error in PIXEL data and codes the PIXEL error, when the error is greater than a predetermined value. The PIXEL coded data is also transmitted to the receiver. The prediction data generator unit generates predicted block data of the motion of the image. The redundancy compression and coding unit may include a filter circuit rejecting pulse components contained in the MC difference.
