    Abstract: Aircraft display systems for deployment onboard rotorcraft or other aircraft are provided, as are methods carried-out by an aircraft display system. In an embodiment, the aircraft display system includes a controller operably coupled to at least one cockpit display device. The controller is configured to generate a Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI) graphics on the cockpit display device. The controller selectively switches PFD operation between a heading-centered display mode and at least a first non-heading-centered display mode. The HSI graphics are produced to include one or more movable HSI symbols identifying a current aircraft heading when the PFD operates in the first non-heading-centered display mode. In certain embodiments, the controller may also selectively generate visual alerts on the PFD by altering the appearance of the HSI graphics when an angle between the current track and the current heading of the aircraft exceeds an angular threshold.

  • Publication number: 20110141137
    Abstract: In a liquid crystal array inspection that acquires an imaging picture by scanning a liquid crystal substrate in a two-dimensional manner with an electron beam to inspect a liquid crystal substrate array based on the imaging picture, the imaging picture obtained by imaging a stage with the electron beam is used to determine the amounts of displacement of an imaging range of each electron gun in an X direction and a Y direction. Amounts of correction for correcting displacements of the imaging range of each electron gun in the X direction and the Y direction are calculated according to the determined amounts of displacement. The displacement in the X direction is corrected by controlling the scanning with the electron beam in the X direction, and the displacement in the Y direction is corrected by aligning a mounting position of each electron gun in the Y direction.

  • Publication number: 20110107222
    Abstract: A display device according synthesizes icons and messages with a portion where no descriptive display image is displayed by OSD for display. Icon functions are set by a PC so that the setting of the operation of the PC and the display device, and the setting of an external device can be conducted. The number of lines of the message to be displayed is determined according to distortion correction at the case of oblique projection to correct position coordinates detected by a camera. In a presentation system including an interactive white board device, the display device (for example, a liquid crystal projector), and the PC, the display of the icons are improved to extend the functions, and the display of the messages at the case of oblique projection, and a position detection precision on a screen by the camera incorporated into the display device are improved.

  • Patent number: 7880602
    Abstract: An image-data loading unit loads image data of an image requested to be displayed based on an input signal in an image memory. A display-image determining unit determines an image to be displayed on the display device based on a priority of the image after the image data is loaded in the image memory. An image-data output unit reads out the image data of the image determined to be displayed by the display-image determining unit from the image memory, and outputs read image data to a display device.
