  • Patent number: 10334149
    Abstract: Example techniques are described for low power mode operation for multi-camera devices. A camera device includes processing circuitry configured to determine what information from the first camera is needed to process image content captured by the second camera or to operate the second camera, and adjust an operation mode of one of the first camera or camera circuitry coupled to the first camera from a first operation mode to a second operation mode based on the determination. An amount of power consumed by the first camera or the camera circuitry coupled to the first camera in the second operation mode is different than an amount of power consumed by the first camera or the camera circuitry in the first operation mode.

  • Publication number: 20190082101
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to systems and methods for assisting in positioning a camera at different zoom levels. An example device may include a memory configured to store image data. The example device may further include a processor in communication with the memory, the processor being configured to process a first image stream associated with a scene, independently process a second image stream associated with a spatial portion of the scene wherein the second image stream is different from the first image stream, output the processed first image stream, and output during output of the processed first image stream a visual indication that indicates the spatial portion associated with the second image stream.

  • Patent number: 6223037
    Abstract: Cell selection during loss of service from a selected network includes maintaining a measurement link with a channel of at least one cell of the selected network while also initiating a broader search on channels of cells of other networks or channels of the selected network not included in maintaining the measurement link. Maintaining the measurement link allows service to be re-established more efficiently if the mobile station is again immediately in a coverage area of the selected network after loss of service occurs. In an embodiment, when a cell reselection process detects a loss of service from a selected network, the mobile station maintains the measurement link by continuing to perform measurement on and synchronizing to at least one channel of the selected network to determine if service can be eventually re-established with a suitable cell of the selected network, even though service has been lost and no cell has been, or may be, reselected from the immediate measurement results.
