  • Patent number: 10531136
    Abstract: A device, method, and program for data stream reproduction are disclosed. In one example, a transmission device includes a multiplexer that generates a data stream by multiplexing a data packet and a control information packet separately from each other, the data packet being a packet including reproduction data as the current data to be reproduced, the control information packet being a packet including control information to be used in reproducing the reproduction data. The multiplexer multiplexes a first packet in a position behind the position located a predetermined first number of packets before a second packet among multiplexing-enabled positions in which the control information packet can be multiplexed in the data stream, the first packet being the control information packet including the control information corresponding to a predetermined processing unit of the reproduction data, the second packet being the data packet including the processing unit.

  • Publication number: 20190230420
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a transmission device, a transmission method, a reception device, a reception method, and a program that allow to make a change dynamically in time stamps which are already transmitted. The transmission device transmits time stamps in a same MPU in which a change is made from already transmitted time stamps so that the time stamps can be received before decoding is started. When the time stamps in the same MPU including the change are received, the reception device updates the time stamps in a time stamp memory and can dynamically change the time stamps since decoding is performed according to the updated time stamps. The present technology can be applied to the transmission device and the reception device.

  • Publication number: 20180248653
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a receiving apparatus and a method therefor which are capable of decreasing a processing load and efficiently improving reproduction quality. A packet accumulating unit stores packets and packet type, and another packet information. A statistics information accumulating unit accumulates statistics information (e.g., an error ratio, performance (processing condition) of the receiving apparatus, a condition of a stream, and a condition of a buffer). A packet-correcting-method selecting unit selects a packet correcting method from a packet correction table generated in accordance with the packet information and packet identification/statistics information from the statistics information accumulating unit, and supplies a packet to be corrected to a packet correcting unit in a case where the packet in process is determined to be a target of correction. For example, the present disclosure can be applied to a communication system that transmits and receives data.

  • Publication number: 20180242035
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a reception device, data processing method, and a program which make it possible to smoothly switch the output of data in a case where data transmitted via different transmission paths is received to be output. A reception device includes: a reception unit that receives a plurality of pieces of data separately transmitted via different transmission paths and given time stamps corresponding to each other; an output control unit that selects data to be output from among the plurality of pieces of data and controls a timing of outputting the selected data on the basis of the time stamp of a piece of data having a latest time stamp among the plurality of pieces of data; and an accumulation unit that accumulates at least the plurality of pieces of data given the time stamps later than the time stamp of the data that has been output from among the received plurality of pieces of data.

  • Publication number: 20180220182
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a recording apparatus, a recording method, and a program capable of avoiding a buffer overflow at the time of reproduction. Each packet is separated from a packet string, and information indicating an arrival timing of each packet is output. The packet is divided into divided packets having a size which does not cause a buffer overflow, and a packet arrival time of each divided packet is embedded in a header of the divided packet. The present technology is applied to the recording apparatus.

  • Patent number: 5289171
    Abstract: In the present invention, an EL element section (1) includes a plurality of arranged cells, each including a thin film EL element formed so as to emit white light, and a like number of predetermined-color filters (2) formed on the surface of the EL element section and corresponding to the cells such that each cell is caused to emit light in accordance with image information and the emitted light is output through the corresponding color filter to color display purposes. Thus, a very thin color display apparatus is provided in which contrast is good and the dependency of the luminance on the visual sensation is also good. The thin film EL element according to the present invention uses a luminous layer of zinc sulphide containing nitrogen, so that transitional luminescence occurs among a plurality of levels, and hence rays of light having various wavelengths are emitted to thereby provide white light containing three primary colors.
