  • Patent number: 6222613
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for processing image information coming from various types of image inputting media yields an image processor for processing image information that consolidates image size irrespective of the type of image inputting medium. The apparatus is provided with a plurality of image inputting media, each of which inputs image information as a first image information having a fixed image size. An image size converter converts the fixed image size to a predetermined image size which is a constant image size independent of both the fixed image size and the type of image inputting medium that inputs the first image information. The conversion generates a second image information and a data generator generates conditional data for processing the second image information. An image processor processes the second image information using predetermined image processing procedures, based on the conditional data, to generate a third image information.

  • Patent number: 5949962
    Abstract: In a method of obtaining a color correcting condition for a color image on an image frame, plural color component image signals are obtained for each pixel of the color image of the frame, and the frame is divided into plural blocks each of which is composed of plural pixels. A block color density value statistic is obtained for each block from the plural color component signals of the plural pixels of each block, wherein the statistic indicates a relationship between a density value and a number of pixels indicating the density value. A chroma level of each block is evaluated based on the block color density value statistic; a frame color density value statistic is obtained from the plural color component signals of the plural pixels of the plural blocks of the frame by reducing an influence of a block evaluated as a high chroma block; and the color correcting condition for the color image is determined based on the frame color density statistic.
