  • Patent number: 11509884
    Abstract: A stereoscopic VR HMD has left and right display portions in which one of the display portions is arranged with a transformation to improve the perceived virtual image resolution and therefore the perceived virtual image quality. The transformation can include offsetting sub-pixels of one of the display portions in the horizontal and if desired vertical dimensions relative to the other display portion. By applying very small (sub-millimeter) offsets along with appropriately adjusted image data, two slightly different virtual images form a stereoscopic image with a perceived increased of resolution in the binocular overlap zone established by the display portions.

  • Patent number: 11495177
    Abstract: The present invention provides an image processing circuit for compensating image data for a display panel used for displaying first and second image patterns respectively having first and second current loadings. The image processing circuit is used for: receiving a first original image data of the first image pattern and a second original image data of the second image pattern having the same brightness value for a pixel at the same location; converting the first original image data into a first final image data to compensate for an IR drop according to the first current loading; and converting the second original image data into a second final image data to compensate for the IR drop according to the second current loading. The first final image data and the second final image data have substantially the same brightness value for the pixel at the same location.

  • Patent number: 11482142
    Abstract: Systems are configured for facilitating light leak correction for a display device. The systems are configured to obtain a color value for a pixel and obtain a light leak value associated with the pixel. The light leak value is based on a measured light leakage associated with a color filter of a display device configured to display the pixel. Systems are also configured to generate an updated color value for the pixel by applying a light leak compensation operation to the color value for the pixel. The light leak compensation operation uses the light leak value as an input for modifying the color value to compensate for light leakage that may otherwise occur when displaying the pixel on the display device. Systems are also configured to trigger display of the pixel on the display device using the updated color value.
