  • Patent number: 10594996
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a separation unit, a Bayer image signal supply unit, and a signal processing unit. The separation unit separates and removes, in input image signals in which pixel signals each including an invisible light component are arranged in an array different from a Bayer array, the invisible light components from the pixel signals. The Bayer image signal supply unit arranges the pixel signals from which the invisible light components have been removed in the Bayer array and supplies the pixel signals as Bayer image signals. The signal processing unit subjects the Bayer image signals to predetermined signal processing.

  • Publication number: 20190185808
    Abstract: In a state where a culture unit is contained in a container of an automatic cell culture device, the circulation of a culture solution in the culture unit is controlled by a control unit, and cell culture is performed in a culture tank. The culture solution is supplied from a culture solution tank, and the cell cultured by a cell collection vial, is collected. In a state where the culture unit is contained in a container of a cell culture device for transport, the circulation of the culture solution in the culture unit is controlled by the control unit, and the cell culture is performed in the culture tank. For this reason, even in a state where the culture unit is attached to the cell culture device for transport, the circulation of the culture solution is controlled, and thus, the culture of the cell is continued.

  • Publication number: 20180077388
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an imaging device, an imaging method, an electronic apparatus, and an onboard electronic apparatus for suppressing the flicker caused by light sources over a wide range of frequencies. With the present technology, multiple images are captured consecutively at uneven intervals in a single-frame period of a video before being blended. This removes the flicker efficiently. The uneven capture timing in the single-frame period is made the same for multiple frames. This makes it possible to prevent low-frequency flicker from getting higher in frequency. The present disclosure may be applied to onboard cameras, for example.
