  • Publication number: 20190289081
    Abstract: A method controls access permission to an image including receiving session information from a first camera at a first position, the session information indicating a subject to be photographed and a session in which the first camera joins, receiving an image of the subject from the first camera, updating the session information such that a second camera, at a second position, joins the session, and monitoring whether the second camera joins the session. A first period is calculated in which the second camera joins the session, a second period is calculated based on the first period, and access permission to a shared image is controlled such that the second camera downloads the shared image during the second period and does not download the shared image outside of the second period, the shared image being one of the image and an image generated based on the image.

  • Publication number: 20190185986
    Abstract: There have been cases where transistors formed using oxide semiconductors are inferior in reliability to transistors formed using amorphous silicon. Thus, in the present invention, a semiconductor device including a highly reliable transistor formed using an oxide semiconductor is manufactured. An oxide semiconductor film is deposited by a sputtering method, using a sputtering target including an oxide semiconductor having crystallinity, and in which the direction of the c-axis of a crystal is parallel to a normal vector of the top surface of the oxide semiconductor. The target is formed by mixing raw materials so that its composition ratio can obtain a crystal structure.
