Scott Daly: Bit-depth extension of digital displays using noise. Sharp Laboratories of America Incorporated, Marger Johnson & McCollom PC, August 27, 2002: US06441867 (72 worldwide citation)

A method for extending bit-depth of display systems. The method includes the steps of measuring the static display noise of a display device, using the display noise to create pseudo-random noise and subtracting the pseudorandom noise from a contone image. After the noise-compensated image data is q ...

William Ho Chang, Scott Daly: Adaptive error diffusion with improved edge and sharpness perception. Sharp Laboratories of America, Marger Johnson & McCollom PC, December 30, 2003: US06671068 (58 worldwide citation)

A method for adaptive error diffusion. The method includes the steps of receiving input image data, detecting edges in the input image data, and then adding noise to the input image data depending upon results of said edge detection. The amount of noise is higher for pixels with higher edge content, ...

Wenjun Zeng, Shawmin Lei, Scott Daly: Image coding method using visual optimization. Sharp Laboratories of America, Marger Johnson & McCollom, December 2, 2003: US06658162 (33 worldwide citation)

A method for compressing and decompressing image information. An encoder receives initial image information and transforms said initial information using a linear transform to produce coefficients. These are then locally normalized using a neighborhood masking weighting factor, quantized and coded t ...

The present invention provides compositions of matter useful as deposition agents for making structures, including thin film structures and hard coatings, on substrates and features of substrates. In an embodiment, for example, the present invention provides metal complexes having one or more dibora ...

Guan Ming Su, Sheng Qu, Scott Daly: Adaptive false contouring prevention in layered coding of images with extended dynamic range. Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation, October 28, 2014: US08873877 (3 worldwide citation)

An encoder receives a sequence of images in extended or visual dynamic range (VDR). For each image, a dynamic range compression function and associated parameters are selected to convert the input image into a second image with a lower dynamic range. Using the input image and the second image, a res ...

Austin L Huang, Scott Daly, Dean Messing, Jeffrey B Sampsell: Image processing system optical shifting mechanism. Sharp Laboratories of Ameria, Chernoff Vilhauer McClung & Stenzel, October 3, 2006: US07116370 (2 worldwide citation)

An image processing system processes light conveying visual pattern information represented by individual light rays. The system includes an optical assembly having an input surface and an output surface. The input and output surfaces define a plurality of input and output positions, respectively, f ...

Robin Atkins, Tao Chen, Scott Daly, Walter C Gish, Samir N Hulyalkar, Michael Rockwell: Content creation using interpolation between content versions. Dolby Laboratories Licensing Corporation, May 26, 2015: US09042682 (2 worldwide citation)

One or more derived versions of image content may be obtained by interpolating two or more source versions of the same image content. A derived version may be targeted for a class of displays that differs from classes of displays targeted by the source versions. Source images in a source version may ...
