  • Patent number: 10983583
    Abstract: The configuration buffer may be divided into partitions that may effectively function as multiple linked configuration buffers. The linked partitions may each be associated with a portion of the display pipeline (e.g., an image process block) and may each be responsible for loading configuration entries into the programmable register(s) of a portion of the display pipeline. In this manner, the partitions may load the associated programmable register(s) of the display pipeline substantially simultaneously, reducing the time used to configure the entire display pipeline. Since configuration of the display pipeline may occur during the blanking period, a reduction in display pipeline configuration time may reduce the blanking period and increase the time for driving pixels of the display, thereby improving perceived image quality (e.g., pixel yield of the display panel).

    Abstract: This disclosure includes example embodiments of graphics processor memory management systems that support the use of graphical textures that are not fully bound or “backed” in memory throughout their entire lifespans. Such graphical textures are referred to herein as “sparse textures.” According to some embodiments, sparse textures may be split into fixed-dimension pages in memory wherein, during execution, a user may indicate a desire to map certain pages to physical memory locations and populate such pages with the underlying data. In other embodiments, statistical information obtained from the graphics processor is used to aid in the determination of whether or not a given texture (or portion of a texture) needs physical memory backing. In yet other embodiments, the graphics processor may also enforce ordering guarantees, e.g., in instances when there are fewer pages in memory available than there is a need for backing of at a given moment in time.

  • Patent number: 10853976
    Abstract: A user interface adaptation module identifies a dominant color of a portion selection of a frame of a video and, based on the dominant color, generates colors for components of a user interface in which the video is displayed. The colors of the user interface components are set based upon the generated colors and upon context information such as a playing state of the video. The setting of the component colors in this way allows the user interface to adjust to complement both the played content of the video and the video's context. In one embodiment, the dominant color is identified by partitioning individual pixels of the portion selection based on their respective colors. In one embodiment, a set of primary color variants is generated based on the dominant color, and different colors are generated for each type of user interface component based on the different primary color variants.

  • Patent number: 10832376
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and non-transitory computer readable storage media are disclosed for applying piecewise deformations to digital content using a plurality of parametric patches. For example, the disclosed system generates a plurality of parametric patches (e.g., Bezier patches) within a parametric quilt for digital content (e.g., a digital image or digital text). The disclosed system also provides interface controls for user-defined split/patch locations for the parametric quilt. In one or more embodiments, the disclosed system divides digital content into a plurality of portions. The disclosed system modifies one or more parametric patches and deforms a corresponding portion(s) of the digital content based on the modified parametric patch(es). The disclosed system then recombines the portions of the digital content to generate modified digital content that includes any deformations based on the modified parametric patch(es).

  • Patent number: 10764469
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes an obtaining unit to obtain image data and a dynamic range conversion unit to convert an input luminance signal included in the image data into an output luminance signal for an image printing apparatus by using a conversion parameter. A dynamic range of luminance of the converted image data is narrower than that of the unconverted image data before the dynamic range conversion. When the input luminance signal indicates an input black reference luminance value, the output luminance signal indicates an output black reference luminance value, and, when the input luminance signal indicates a predetermined reference input luminance value, the output luminance signal indicates a reference output luminance value, the reference output luminance value being a value calculated based on the predetermined reference input luminance value and the output black reference luminance value for observing a print product to be printed by the printing apparatus.

    Abstract: An image is configured as private within a storage container. An image processing application initiates operations to configure the image as private upon receiving the image captured by an image capture device. A metadata table is generated for the image. The metadata table includes a privacy tag. A privacy value is determined for the privacy tag. Next, the privacy tag is configured based on the privacy value. The privacy tag determines an access to the image based on the privacy value. The image is stored with the metadata table in a storage container. The storage container is hosted locally or in a cloud based storage.

  • Patent number: 10740929
    Abstract: Graphic arts software has evolved to provide users with a variety of mark making tools to simulate different brushes, papers, and applied media such as ink, chalk, watercolour, spray paint and oils. However, in many instances the marks rendered appear unnatural and artificial despite the software's goal being to simulate as realistically. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide either users or the software application with a mechanism to remove or reduce artifacts indicative of artificial generation, e.g. rapid transitions. Further, in many instances the graphic images generated and/or manipulated refer to imagined environments or have elements that are physical in nature. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide users with a range of mark making tools that represent marks made by mark making tools comprising multiple elements following physical laws.
