  • Publication number: 20220313178
    Abstract: A data processing device is applied to an X-ray system which irradiates an object with continuous X-rays and processes data detected by a photon counting X-ray detection device. An n-dimensional vector corresponding to each of “n” energy regions set a spectrum of the continuous X-rays is calculated for each detector pixel based on the data. For each search region virtually set up based on one or more detector pixels, the n-dimensional vectors at the detector pixels belonging to each search pixel are mutually vector added in the n-dimensional space. The n-dimensional representative vector representing each of the plurality of search regions is calculated. Based on the representative vectors and an unit region having a desired size virtually set in a material space with coordinate information of the degree of attenuation of the X-rays, the information indicating the amount, type and properties of the material of the object is obtained.

  • Patent number: 7345713
    Abstract: An analog-to-digital converter converts a video signal into a digital video signal consisting of N bits and outputs the converted signal. A correction value memory stores correction data consisting of M bits which is used to correct the difference in luminance between display pixels on a display. A multiplier multiplies the video signal consisting of N bits output from the analog-to-digital converter by the correction data consisting of M bits stored in the correction value memory, and outputs a video signal consisting of L bits with which the difference in luminance between display pixels on the display is corrected.

  • Publication number: 20070014546
    Abstract: A control unit determines whether a flag for instructing execution of finalize process is set. In the case where dubbing is automatically stopped under any of the conditions “no signal in predetermined period,” “TAPE-END” and “DISC-FULL,” the flag for instructing execution of finalize process is set and thus the control unit executes finalize process. In contrast, in the case where the flag for instructing execution of finalize process is not set due to the fact for example that the user manually stops the dubbing by means of an operation unit, the whole process is ended without execution of finalize process. Accordingly, it is unnecessary for the user to manually perform finalize process while checking a monitor at the spot. Thus, a recording and reproducing apparatus improving the convenience for the user in dubbing from a magnetic tape to a disc medium can be provided.

  • Publication number: 20060066643
    Abstract: A judging unit compares data in a dither table for each display pixel with a numerical value of low-order 2 bits of an input signal (12 bits) and outputs 1 to an adder when the numerical value of the low-order 2 bits of the input signal is larger than the data in the dither table, while outputting 0 to the adder in other cases. The adder adds the value outputted from the judging unit to an uneven luminance correction value read from a correction memory, so that the uneven luminance correction value is corrected. A multiplier multiplies the input signal by the uneven luminance correction value after the correction.
