  • Patent number: 10182271
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for playing a summary of a scene related to a current scene from a media asset being played in a display. This may be accomplished by a media guidance application receiving a command to play a summary of a scene related to the current playback. The media guidance application then determines a scene or scenes related to the current scene and compiles a summary of the related scenes. The media guidance application may also compile summarized content of the current scene to catch a viewer watching summary up to the current scene when the summary is complete. The media guidance application generates for display, on a second display, the summary content.

  • Patent number: 10170080
    Abstract: An electronic device may have a main display and an ancillary display. The device may also have a backlit keyboard with glyphs. An ambient light sensor may measure ambient light levels. Control circuitry in the laptop computer may adjust the color cast of content on the ancillary display depending on whether the content contains glyphs or other input display content or whether the content contains images, color gradients, or other output display content. Input display content may be matched in color cast to the color cast of the glyphs, which may be determined based on backlight status and/or measured ambient light information. Output content may be color matched to the main display.

  • Patent number: 10159135
    Abstract: A display device that can display an image along a curved surface is provided. In the display device, a first display panel and a second display panel overlap each other with a light-transmitting layer provided therebetween. The light-transmitting layer is positioned on a display surface side of the first display panel, and on a side opposite to the display surface of the second display panel. The light-transmitting layer has an average transmittance of 80% or more with respect to light in the wavelength range of 450 nm to 700 nm and a refractive index higher than that of air. A display region of the first display panel overlaps a region transmitting visible light of the second display panel with the light-transmitting layer provided therebetween. It is preferred that the display region of the first display panel not overlap with a region blocking visible light of the second display panel.
