  • Patent number: 10715778
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a video signal transmission device and the like that can support a variety of system specifications. The device includes a packer unit, an encoder unit, and a serializer. The packer unit generates, from a video signal of one or more pixels, a plurality of block signals having a packet configuration of size corresponding to the number of pixels and the number of tone bits of a color signal constituting a video signal. At this time, a control signal including a pulse having a width corresponding to the number of pixels and the number of tone bits is also generated. The encoder unit applies encoding processing having encoding efficiencies that are different between a first period and a second period of a control signal that are distinguished depending on existence or non-existence of a pulse to the block signals.
