  • Patent number: 11360732
    Abstract: A system and method is disclosed that allows multiple casting devices to work together to populate a large display screen according to the subject matter disclosed herein. The system includes a receiving device that includes two or more screen-cast receivers and a controller. Each screen-cast receiver receives from a corresponding casting device at least a portion of a frame of original content of the corresponding casting device generated in a native resolution of the corresponding casting device. The controller synchronizes each received portion of the frame of the original content of the corresponding casting device to form a video output signal that comprises a combination of each received portion, in addition to any internally generated content derived by the receiving display. A casting device may be a smartphone, a tablet, or a computing device, such as a laptop computer.

  • Patent number: 11355473
    Abstract: A tiled light emitting diode (LED) display panel includes multiple flexible back plates arranged in tiles. Each flexible back plate has multiple through holes formed thereon. A pixel array is formed by multiple LEDs on the flexible back plates and collectively defines multiple pixels. Each pixel includes one LED and thin-film transistor (TFT) circuits disposed on a first side of a corresponding flexible back plate. A printed circuit board (PCB) is disposed at a second side of the flexible back plates. A third side of the PCB faces the second side of the flexible back plates and has multiple signal lines formed thereon. The LEDs and the TFT circuits of the pixels are electrically connected to the corresponding signal lines via multiple conductive structures formed in the through holes. A resistance per unit length of each flexible back plates is greater than a resistance per unit length of the PCB.
