Alan Heirich, Laurent Moll, Mark Shand, Albert Tam, Robert W Horst: Parallel pipelined merge engines. Hewlett Packard Development Company, June 22, 2004: US06753878 (99 worldwide citation)

An image generator is organized into a plurality of rendering engines, each of which renders an image of a part scene and provides the part image to a merge engine associated with that rendering engine. The image is a part image in that it usually contains less than all of the objects in the image t ...

Mark Shand, Guillaume Etorre: Stereoscopic video signal processor with enhanced 3D effect. ZORAN, The Marbury Law Group PLLC, March 29, 2016: US09300941 (1 worldwide citation)

An input stereoscopic video signal has a first frame sequence (SL) in a left-eye channel and a second frame sequence (SR) in a right-eye channel, the second frame sequence (SR) having a zero or non-zero time offset τ1 with respect to the first frame sequence (SL). It is converted into an output ster ...

Mark Shand: Frame buffer compression for video processing devices. ZORAN, November 10, 2015: US09185423

For compressing a video signal, a local multiscale transform is applied to a frame of the video signal to obtain coefficient blocks. The coefficients of each block are distributed into coefficient groups associated with that block. A plurality of the coefficient groups associated with a block are pr ...
