  • Publication number: 20080311952
    Abstract: A mobile handset and method therefor automatically limit user selection of local broadcast channels to those that are active. Location-related information sourced by an external node, such as RNSS position information from RNSS satellites or a cellular identification value sourced by a network access node, and received on the handset is applied to identify active local TV channels and the mobile handset limits selection of local TV channels by a user of the mobile handset to the active local TV channels. Identification of active local TV channels includes a first instance identification based on a lookup operation performed on the mobile handset and a second instance identification based on an active channel query/response exchange between the mobile handset and a server node, wherein the second instance identification is applied to update the first instance identification.

  • Patent number: 5432609
    Abstract: A two-dimensional colorimeter focuses light through a beam splitter onto a rotary filter so that a first light receiving element can receive light from multiple points on a sample. A rotating filter can provide multiple measurements based upon different wavelengths of light. A portion of the light from the beam splitter also contacts a spectral sensor which separates the light from a particular point into primary wavelength elements which are converted into electrical signals. Based upon these primary wavelength elements, the first signals from the light receiving element are corrected. As a result, the measurement of chromaticity of multiple points on a sample can be performed accurately using a device of simple construction.

  • Patent number: 5305233
    Abstract: A spectrophotometer utilizes a band-pass filter array for splitting incident light into a plurality of light components of different wavelengths, a plurality of silicon photodiodes for receiving the respective light components, and a memory for storing spectral sensitivity information. The spectral sensitivity information is obtained by integrating the spectral sensitivities of spectrodetectors relative to each sectionalized wavelength regions sectionally generated from a measurement wavelength region. Each of the spectrodetectors include a band-pass filter array and a silicon photodiode in combination. A central processing unit calculates simultaneous equations representing the relation between the output from each of the silicon photodiodes, the spectral sensitivity information stored in memory and the light intensity of the sectionalized wavelength region, to obtain the light intensity.
