The single board computer connects to the front panel power and reset switches, the switching board and the motherboard power switch input. Upon user input to the software program running on the single board computer, a limitations database is accessed. If time is allowed, the program powers the motherboard and switches the USB keyboard and video outputs to the motherboard. During the last minutes of allowed time, the program periodically flashes the display warning the user and, through power and reset switch presses, a time extension can be requested. If allowed, according to the database, use time is extended by the predefined setting. Otherwise time runs out normally and the motherboard is powered off and the USB and video circuits switched back to the single board computer.

  • Patent number: 10152772
    Abstract: Systems, apparatuses, and methods for generating and utilizing sub-pixel sampling patterns on a processor are disclosed. In one embodiment, a processor includes at least multiple execution units and a memory. The processor generates sub-pixel sampling coordinates within each pixel of an image being rendered based on a rotated grid superimposed on the image. The processor also specifies an amount of rotation for the rotated grid. The processor utilizes the sub-pixel sampling coordinates for determining which locations to sample within the image being rendered. The sampling patterns generated based on these techniques enable using more complex and computationally efficient anti-aliasing resolve filters, resulting in higher quality images.

  • Patent number: 10152944
    Abstract: Color signals to be displayed on a colored display surface and having a first gamut in a color space, are subjected to radiometric compensation. An embodiment includes displaying on the colored surface a set of control points of a known color, acquiring via a camera the control points as displayed on the colored surface and evaluating at least one second color gamut of the control points displayed on the colored surface. The second color gamut(s) is/are misaligned with respect to the first color gamut due to the display surface being a colored surface. The method may also include evaluating as an intersection gamut, the misalignment of the second color gamut(s) with respect to the first color gamut, calculating the color transformation operator(s) as a function of the misalignment evaluated, and applying the color transformation operator(s) to the color signals for display on the colored display surface.

  • Patent number: 10134345
    Abstract: The invention provides a luminance adjustment method and apparatus for RGBW LCD, which uses first and second EOTFs to generate a grayscale luminance lookup table for RGBW LCD, and makes the grayscale-luminance relation in lookup table corresponding to the first EOTF within the grayscale interval between 0 and grayscale threshold; the grayscale-luminance relation in lookup table corresponding to the second EOTF within the grayscale interval between grayscale threshold and 255; the curve slope of the second EOTF greater than the curve slope of the first EOTF within the interval between second luminance threshold and maximum luminance value. By adopting different EOTFs for low and high grayscale intervals, the method considers the poor dark state characteristics of LCD and characteristics of RGBW LCD having higher maximum luminance, and improves the display capability of RGBW LCD in details of high grayscale images.
