  • Patent number: 10629107
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus generates a reference image including information to be presented to a user in accordance with a first attitude of an HMD identified at a first point in time. Based on the difference between the first attitude and a second attitude of the HMD identified at a second point in time after the first point in time, the information processing apparatus generates from the reference image a display image to be displayed on the HMD. Upon generation of the display image, the later the timing for displaying a specific image in the display image displayed on the HMD, the larger the amount of displacement is made by the information processing apparatus between the position of the specific pixel in the display image and the position of a corresponding image in the reference image serving as the source from which to set the pixel value of the specific pixel.

  • Patent number: 9047416
    Abstract: In a switching node, high-speed and advanced service protocol processing function is achieved by utilizing an external control server without affecting performance of conventional service protocol processing. Specifically, a forwarding engine has PCI express and an LAN interface. Depending on a type of an input packet, destination of the packet is switched to the PCI express side for conventional network service and to the LAN interface side for extended network service that cooperates with the external control server. A CPU having the PCI express and the LAN interface is provided ahead of the LAN interface. The CPU performs communication of service inquiry with the external control server at high speed via the LAN interface. After response from the control server is obtained, setting of the forwarding engine is performed through the PCI express.
