  • Publication number: 20160246057
    Abstract: [Object] To provide an image display system that displays an image with a wide field of view while reducing VR sickness. [Solution] When a field of view FOVO of an original image provided by an image output device (200) is greater than a field of view FOVD of an image viewed by a user wearing an image display device (300), the image output device (200) cuts out a region with the field of view FOVD from the original image for delivery to the image display device (300). Also, when the field of view FOVO of the image viewed by the user wearing the image display device (300) is equal to or greater than the field of view FOVD of the original image provided by the image output device (200), the image output device (200) delivers the original image as-is to the image display device (300).

  • Patent number: 9007481
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus, information processing method and computer program product cooperate in detecting a first target object contained in image information. Image information of an image is received through an interface. A processing circuit determines whether a first target object in the image information has not yet been detected. A determination is also made regarding whether a second target object in the image information has been detected. An image quality parameter of the image is modified to assist subsequent detection attempts in recognizing the first target object when the first target object has not yet been detected but the second target object has been detected.

  • Patent number: 8582806
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a detector, a setting unit, and an image generator. The detector detects a target object image region from a first image. When one or more predetermined parameters are applicable to a target object within the region detected by the detector, the setting unit sets the relevant target object image region as a first region. The image generator then generates a second image by applying predetermined processing to either the image portion within the first region, or to the image portions in a second region containing image portions within the first image that are not contained in the first region.

  • Patent number: 8494258
    Abstract: A learning apparatus includes an image generator, a feature point extractor, a feature value calculator, and a classifier generator. The image generator generates, from an input image, images having differing scale coefficients. The feature point extractor extracts feature points from each image generated by the image generator. The feature value calculator calculates feature values for the feature points by filtering the feature points using a predetermined filter. The classifier generator generates one or more classifiers for detecting a predetermined target object from an image by means of statistical learning using the feature values.
