  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20200096940
    Abstract: In a microscopic observation unit (10), hologram data is acquired at each measurement position on a cell culture plate (13) while a light-source section (11) and other elated sections are gradually moved by a moving section (15). Every time a set of data for one measurement position is acquired, a measurement monitoring image creator (4) creates a thumbnail age by reducing the size of a hologram image which is based on original data (two-dimensional distribution of light intensity). A display processor (25) pastes the create thumbnail image to progressively complete the hologram image of the entire plate to be displayed on a display unit (27). A measurement operator watches the hologram image during the execution of the measurement. When it has been concluded that the ongoing measurement is inappropriate, the operator presses a measurement stop button to immediately discontinue the measurement.
