  • Patent number: 10078791
    Abstract: An invention is disclosed for a real time video analytic processor that embodies algorithms and processing architectures that process a wide variety of sensor images in a fashion that emulates how the human visual path processes and interprets image content. spatial, temporal, and color content of images are analyzed and the salient features of the images determined. These salient features are then compared to the salient features of objects of user interest in order to detect, track, classify, and characterize the activities of the objects. Objects or activities of interest are annotated in the image streams and alerts of critical events are provided to users. Instantiation of the cognitive processing can be accomplished on multi-FPGA and multi-GPU processing hardwares.

  • Patent number: 10074182
    Abstract: Architecture that enables the drawing of markup in a scene that neither obscures the scene nor is undesirably obscured by the scene. When drawing markup such as text, lines, and other graphics, into the scene, a determination is made as to the utility to the viewer of drawing the markup with greater prominence than an occluding scene object. The utility of the markup is based on the distance of the scene object and markup from the camera. Thus, if an object that appears small in the scene and is in front of the markup, the markup will be drawn more clearly, whereas if the same object appears large in the scene and is in front of the markup, the markup is rendered faint, if drawn at all.

    Abstract: Displaying wide-gamut images as intended on color-managed wide-gamut display systems while rendering a visually consistent image when rendered on targeted narrow-gamut display systems (regardless of whether the narrow-gamut displays are color-managed). Images represented in accordance with this disclosure are referred to as a dual-target images (DTI): one target being the image's original wide-gamut color space, the other target being a specified narrow-gamut color space. The novel representational scheme retains narrow-gamut rendering for those colors in a wide-gamut image that are within the targeted narrow-gamut color space, transitioning to wide-gamut rendering for those colors in the wide-gamut image that are outside the targeted narrow-gamut color space. This approach minimizes pixel clipping when rendering a wide-gamut image for a narrow-gamut display, while allowing the original wide-gamut pixel values to be recovered when rendering for a wide-gamut display.

    Abstract: A solution is proposed that allows power savings via enhancement of pixel data to compensate for reducing backlight intensity levels. According to one embodiment, each pixel of a display is sorted according to the brightness (intensity) of the pixel. Regional pixel gains are calculated and applied on a per pixel basis so as not to exceed a quality threshold. The intensity of the backlight corresponding to each region may be decreased by an equivalent amount, thereby reducing (potentially significantly) the power consumed to operate the backlight while maintaining the color intensity in the image due to the applied pixel gains.

  • Patent number: 10009976
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing an electroluminescent device including at least one region that is operable to emit light when excited by an electric signal being applied thereto is provided. Layers of electrode material and light-emitting material are deposited to form a multi-layer structure. During deposition, one or more of the layers are at least partially dried or cured before adding a subsequent layer. Once the multi-layer structure is formed, heat is applied to the multi-layer structure to soften one or more of its layers. Thereafter, an optionally non-planar molding surface is applied to the softened multi-layer structure to form at least one region with substantial two-dimensional curvature. At least one light-emitting layer within said region is operable to emit light in a spatially continuous manner with substantially uniform luminance and chromaticity across said region.

  • Patent number: 10003485
    Abstract: A system for synchronizing lighting effect patterns of interactive lighting effect devices at a remote location with respect to those at local location is disclosed herein. Synchronized lighting effects produced at the remote location while watching a lighting effect show using other interactive lighting effect devices illuminated according to a script at event venue, can be achieved. Such synchronized lighting effects obtained at remote location generate a corresponding virtual simulated perception of attending same concert venue live when watching a live streaming video thereof. Low latency between lighting effect changes are produced at remote location with respect to those observed in concert venue live streaming video due to method of color control signal generation along with usage of color control pattern blending module that creates a blended video frame comprising of a color control pattern, which allows for efficient lighting effect pattern generation at remote location.
