  • Publication number: 20190220659
    Abstract: In order to reduce limitations on an arrangement of a posture visualization system as a whole, a posture recognition unit recognizes, based on image data of a real space captured by an image capture unit from a predetermined viewpoint, a posture of an object in the image data of the real space. A posture visualization viewpoint setting unit sets a viewpoint different from the predetermined viewpoint. A posture visualization unit visualizes a mirror image of the posture of the object viewed from the viewpoint set by the posture visualization viewpoint setting unit based on the posture recognized by the posture recognition unit. A space display unit displays the mirror image of the posture of the object generated by the posture visualization unit and a mirror image of the real space at once.

  • Patent number: 10152945
    Abstract: There is provided an image processing apparatus capable of appropriately performing conversion processing using a lookup table on image data in an image format with a wide dynamic range. In the image processing apparatus, a system control unit sets a second dynamic range (display range) as a display target in a first dynamic range (input range) corresponding to an image format of input image data. A 1D-LUT data generation unit generates, based on the set second dynamic range (display range), first lookup table (LUT) data as a lookup table for performing first conversion processing on the input image data. A 3D-LUT data generation unit generates, based on the first dynamic range (display range), second lookup table (LUT) data as a lookup table for performing second conversion processing on image data obtained by the first conversion processing.
