  • Publication number: 20190320201
    Abstract: A computation unit subtracts a prediction image from an input image. An orthogonal transformation unit applies orthogonal transformation to an output of the computation unit. A quantization unit quantizes an output of the orthogonal transformation unit. An encoding unit encodes an output of the quantization unit. A prediction mode determination unit determines a prediction mode from the input image. The prediction mode is different according to types of an I-picture, a P-picture and a B-picture.

  • Patent number: 10439113
    Abstract: A light emitting device includes a light emitting element, a sealing member, and a first film. The light emitting element has a light emitting surface from which a light is emitted. The sealing member is provided on the light emitting surface of the light emitting element to cover the light emitting surface and having a light output surface via which the light is output from the sealing member. The light output surface being curved to have a concave shape. The sealing member includes a light-transmissive material containing a fluorescent material to convert a wavelength of the light emitted from the light emitting element. The first film is disposed on a part of the light output surface of the sealing member to partially reflect the light emitted from the light emitting element.

  • Patent number: 10435103
    Abstract: A first steering inter-axis distance between a left steering bearing and a right bearing of a linkage differs from a second steering inter-axis distance between a left joint steering bearing and a right joint steering bearing of a steering force transmission. A difference between a first left leaning inter-axis distance between a lower intermediate leaning bearing and a lower left leaning bearing and a second left leaning inter-axis distance between an intermediate joint leaning bearing and a left joint leaning bearing is smaller than a difference between a first left steering inter-axis distance between a front intermediate steering bearing and the left steering bearing and a second left steering inter-axis distance between an intermediate joint steering bearing and the left joint steering bearing.
