  • Patent number: 11570453
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses and systems may provide for a video transmitter that generates a primary bitstream based on a video signal, wherein the primary bitstream is encoded with subsampled chroma information, and detects a static condition with respect to the video signal. Additionally, a plurality of auxiliary bitstreams may be generated, in response to the static condition, based on the video signal. Each of the plurality of auxiliary bitstreams may be encoded with full resolution chroma information. In one example, a video receiver may detect that the auxiliary bitstreams are associated with the primary bitstream, decode the primary bitstream and the plurality of auxiliary bitstreams to obtain luma information and the full resolution chroma information, and multiplex the luma information with the full resolution chroma information.

  • Patent number: 11562674
    Abstract: Technology for a display source device is described. The display source device can receive a frame start indication from a display panel at a start of a frame. The display source device can align a timing of the display source device to a timing of the display panel based on the frame start indication received from the display panel to obtain frame-level synchronization between the display source device and the display panel. The display source device can send one or more frame update regions to the display panel in accordance with the timing of the display source device that is aligned to the timing of the display panel.

  • Patent number: 11538437
    Abstract: Particular embodiments described herein provide for an electronic device that includes a display and is configured enabling a low power refresh during a semi-active workload. The electronic device includes a display engine, where the display engine generates a video stream with a frame rate, a display, where the display includes an image viewable by a user and the image is refreshed at a first refresh rate, and a timing controller located in the display, where the timing control receives an indicator from the display engine and uses the indicator to determine that the first refresh rate can be lowered to a second refresh rate without the frame rate of the video stream from the display engine being changed. In an example, the indicator is frame with no image data at the start of the frame. In another example, the indicator is an implicit indictor sent by the display engine.

  • Publication number: 20210149441
    Abstract: A lid controller hub (LCH) comprising processing components located in the lid of a mobile computing device, such as a laptop, processes sensor data generated by input sensors (microphones, cameras, touchscreen) and provides for improved and enhanced experiences over existing devices. For example, the LCH provides hardened privacy and the synchronization of touch display activities with the display refresh rate, the latter providing for a smoother and more responsive touch experience over existing designs. The LCH comprises neural network accelerators and digital signal processors that enable waking a device upon detection of an authenticated user's voice or face. The LCH also allows for video- and audio-based contextual awareness and adaptive cooling. By enabling a reduced hinge wire count and a typical day's usage with a single battery charge, an LCH can also provide for an improved industrial design to a simpler hinge and smaller battery.

For example, the LCH provides hardened privacy and the synchronization of touch display activities with the display refresh rate, the latter providing for a smoother and more responsive touch experience over existing designs. The LCH enables continuous gestures comprising touch gesture and in-air gesture portions as well as multi-plane gestures in which an initial touch gesture places the device into a mode or context in which it recognizes and acts upon subsequent in-air gestures. Touch operations of a mobile computing device can be based on user presence, user engagement, and a level of user interaction with the device.
