  • Publication number: 20190335165
    Abstract: The disclosure describes various aspects of a partial light field display architecture. In an aspect, a light field display includes multiple picture elements (e.g., super-raxels), where each picture element includes a first portion having a first set of light emitting elements, where the first portion is configured to produce light outputs that contribute to at least one a two-dimensional (2D) view. Each picture element also includes a second portion including a second set of light emitting elements (e.g., sub-raxels) configured to produce light outputs (e.g., ray elements) that contribute to at least one three-dimensional (3D) view. The light field display also includes electronic means configured to drive the first set of light emitting elements and the second set of light emitting elements in each picture element.

  • Publication number: 20190333443
    Abstract: The disclosure describes various aspects of an architecture for light emitting elements in a light field display. In an aspect, a light field display can include multiple picture elements (e.g., super-raxels), where each of the picture elements has a respective light steering optical element and includes an array of light emitting elements (e.g., sub-raxels) that area monolithically integrated on a same semiconductor substrate. The light steering optical element can include at least one microlens, at least one grating, or a combination of both. The array of light emitting elements includes light emitting elements that produce at least three different colors of light. Separate groups of light emitting elements can be configured and a directional resolution of the light field display can be based on the number of groups. The light field display also includes electronic means configured to individually drive the light emitting elements in each of the picture elements.

  • Patent number: 10394941
    Abstract: A collaborative authoring application provides an authoring environment in which two or more users can edit a document concurrently. Each user edits a copy of the document, sends updates to a master copy of the document, and receives updates from the master copy of the document. The authoring environment generally inhibits the users from providing conflicting editing instructions to the master copy of the document. For example, each user can generate a content lock about one or more data units within the document. The authoring environment may synchronize content locks automatically and content only at the request of the user.
