  • Patent number: 9454247
    Abstract: An operating method for an interactive writing device is provided. The operating method includes following steps. A visible light image is captured in response to an original outputted image. A tag searching region is established in the visible light image in response to a writing operation performed by a writing object having a color tag pattern. The original outputted image corresponding to the tag searching region is filtered from the visible light image in the tag searching region to generate a local processed image. A color tag corresponding to the color tag pattern of the writing object is searched from the local processed image. A color value corresponding to the color tag is generated.

  • Publication number: 20130321481
    Abstract: A self-luminescent display apparatus is provided. The self-luminescent display apparatus includes a self-luminescent panel, a display controller and an adaptive adjusting unit. The self-luminescent panel comprises self-luminescent elements and an allowed active region. When the allowed active region is configured to a first range, the display controller drives the self-luminescent elements in the first range to display an image frame. The adaptive adjusting unit configures the allowed active region to a second range according to a trigger condition, and scales the image frame to correspond to the second range. The adaptive adjusting unit controls the display controller to drive the self-luminescent elements in the second range to display an adjusted image frame, and controls the self-luminescent elements outside the second range to turn off.
