05686960 is referenced by 163 patents and cites 50 patents.

An image input device is provided in which an optical deflector is positioned to divide the image of an object into a plurality of sub-images and to deflect the sub-images to an image sensor via an imaging lens. The images sensed by the image sensor are stored in a memory and combined by an image processor to form a composite image of the object. A hybrid zoom arrangement allows the magnification of an image on a display to be adjusted both mechanically and electronically. Techniques and circuitry for image processing allow a user to remove undesirable motion blur from the real time image and allow an input image to be patch-wise warped into an output image. An optical encoder for accurately determining the position of a deflector such as a mirror has also been provided.
