  • Patent number: 9564104
    Abstract: Techniques are presented for adjusting a brightness of a front light that illuminates a display of an electronic device. Typically, page updates on certain types of displays, such as electronic paper displays, result in a relatively large but rapid change in brightness. Therefore, by adjusting the brightness of the front light during the update (e.g., when some, a majority, or all of the pixels are in the white state) and then adjusting the brightness back to another state upon or near completion of the update, the overall brightness perceived by the user remains more uniform. Increasing the uniformity of this perceived brightness in turn decreases the jarring effect of an update and increases the experience of the user.

  • Patent number: 9407823
    Abstract: Example embodiments concern reducing the negative impacts of camera motion during video capture. Processing, transmitting, or displaying motion compromised video data yields inefficient use of bandwidth, battery power, memory, and other resources. Watching video acquired from a moving video camera may induce motion sickness. Unlike conventional systems that attempt to address motion by increasing frame capture rates to produce better individual frames, example embodiments identify frames that are compromised by motion data and do not provide or present them for viewing. Compromised frames may be logically or physically deleted from a video stream or memory. Motion may be detected by physical apparatus (e.g., accelerometer) or through image processing (e.g., motion artifacts, low correlation between frames, low signal-to-noise ratio). A display device may be controlled to operate in a video display mode or a still frame mode depending on motion detected in captured video frames.

  • Patent number: 8884844
    Abstract: An exemplary electronic device includes a first display and a second display. The first display includes a number of first pixels. Each first pixel defines a first display region. Each first display region displays first visual content when voltages are applied to the first pixel and displays no first visual content when no voltage is applied to the first pixel. Each first display region is transparent or translucent when displaying no first visual content. The second display includes a number of second pixels. Each second pixel defines a second display region for displaying second visual content. The first visual content is viewable whether or not the second display displays the second visual content, and the second visual content is viewable when one or more first display regions corresponding to the second display region are transparent or translucent.

  • Patent number: 8786775
    Abstract: Provided are a display system and a method of outputting an image signal corresponding to a display panel. The display system includes an image processor converting original video data input from a video signal converting unit into converted video data corresponding to a recognized output standard and outputting the converted video data; and a display unit including a memory storing characteristic information and serving to display the converted video data as visual information. Here, the image processor reads out the characteristic information from the memory to recognize the output standard. Accordingly, it is possible to adaptively cope with the case where only the display panel is replaced for the purpose of improvement in resolution, etc.
