This application claims the priority filing date of provisional patent application U.S. No. 60/788,469, registered on March 31, 2006

The proposed system applies to the effects of ambient light, which accompany the display of data.

Koninklijke Philips electronics N.V. (Philips) and other companies have disclosed means for changing ambient or external light to improve video content for a typical home or business applications. Modulated video diffuse illumination, which is provided with the display device or a TV, shown to reduce fatigue of the viewer and to improve the realism and depth of experiences. Now Philips has a line of TVs, including a flat-screen TV with ambient lighting where the frame around the TV includes sources of ambient light, which is projected ambient lighting on the back wall, which supports or is adjacent to a TV. In addition, the light sources separate from the TV, can also be modulated in the video for the formation of ambient lighting, which can likewise be controlled.

In the case of single colour light source, the modulation of the light source can only be modulated brightness source is the IR lighting. The light source, allowing for the formation of multicolor light, provides the ability to modulate many aspects of the multicolor light source on the basis of the displayed video, including widely selectable interval of color per pixel.

The purpose of this system is to overcome disadvantages in the prior art and/or providing the effect of ambient light, which may not be directly associated with the content of the displayed video.

The present system provides a method, program and device for the control element of the ambient lighting. According to a variant implementation of the category of the displayed data, which are determined by the node, the data of the scattered light associated with the determined category, are extracted, and the extracted data ambient lighting displays in accordance with the display data. The data that is retrieved ambient lighting can be a script executed with the ability to determine the temporal parts of the data ambient lighting. Data ambient lighting may be associated with a category based on input from the user. Categories may include news, traffic and weather.

The sub-data can be defined and extracted data ambient lighting can be modified with additional Yes the tion of ambient light, associated with the subcategory. Association category data ambient lighting can be edited by the user. May be granted to the Association a default category data ambient lighting.

The present system further explained with the help of example with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 shows a block diagram according to a variant of the implementation of this system.

Figure 2 shows a block diagram according to a variant of the implementation of this system.

Figure 3 shows the device according to the variant of the implementation of this system.

The following description discloses illustrative embodiments of the present invention, which are in place with the attached drawings will show the above features and advantages, as well as additional features and advantages. In the following description, for further explanation, but not limitation, specific details are set forth, for example, a particular architecture, interfaces, techniques, etc. to illustrate. However, specialists in the art it will be obvious that other embodiments of who deviate from these specific details, are also within the scope of the claimed invention defined by the attached claims. Moreover, for clarity, detailed the descriptions of well known devices, circuits and methods are omitted so as not to complicate the description of the real system.

It should be noted that the drawings included here for illustrative purposes and do not affect the amount of the claims of the claimed system.

Figure 1 shows a block diagram 100 according to a variant of implementation of the present system. During steps 110 starts the process, which can occur as a result of activation, for example the inclusion of site ambient lighting. As used in the materials of the present application, the term site ambient lighting, or simply site, is designed to enable a device that has features and/or characteristics that are not related to the formation of ambient light. For example, a television, a monitor, a personal digital assistant (PDA), cell phone and other devices that have the ability to display text data, it can be considered a node. The node may include an ambient lighting system according to a variant of implementation of the present system or may simply be operatively connected with a similar ambient lighting system. Action 110 may also be due to the activation characteristic of ambient light by the user node. For example, the user may decide at some point of time to activate or reactivate a sign of ambient lighting agreement is but a variant of the implementation of this system. Of course, the sign of the ambient lighting can be set by default in the "on" state without interference or intervention. Obviously, 110 may also provide switching between the process of ambient light based on the video and the process of ambient light on the basis of the data, as described in this document. In one embodiment, this switching between processes can be based on the identification of the node data type (for example, through video or text)that is displayed by the node.

In any case, during the 120 system according to a variant implementation is pending to determine if you can view the data. The term "data" as used herein is intended to include Teletext, computer data, web pages, including combined text and graphic web page, closed captioning text, and other data such as these.

Under this system, after determining that the node displays the data or performs the display data, the present system determines the category of the data during steps 130. Data typically can be defined as belonging to a particular category of data, such as news, traffic, weather, etc. According to a variant implementation of the data can be metadata associated with the data which define the category. According to an additional variant of the implementation of the displayed data can be analyzed directly to determine the category and/or to determine additional information associated with a category that includes information associated with the subcategory. For example, in one embodiment, the data category of the weather can be defined, for example, using the associated metadata. Accordingly, data can automatically be considered to determine the details of meteorological data, for example, associated with a particular forecast, present in the meteorological data. Consideration may just be the identification of key words within the data, for example, rain, snow, sun, etc. or may be more complex, for example, determining a graphical representation contained within the data (the image shows clouds with rain and so on), determining the sequence and/or a large part of the data for differences between categories or details on defined categories. For example, identification of key words rain and the indication associated with a measurement that indicates the amount of rain (e.g., inches, centimeters, etc)can be used to extract relevant data ambient lighting during the 140 according to the present system. For that is about to simplify the discussion, herein, the term category is intended for expression of the General information associated with the data, as well as more detailed information such as category, sub category, up until not specifically expressed otherwise.

For the variant of implementation, in which the data are teletextanti data, the most significant symbol of the Teletext pages may determine the category of the data of the Teletext. The next most significant symbol defines a subcategory Teletext data. For example, the first character can determine the category of "sporting events", while the next most significant symbol can define a sub-regional sports competitions". In this embodiment, each of the most significant character may define additional sub-data of the Teletext. Regardless of how you define the category and/or details associated with the category data, the system according to option implementation retrieves data lighting, for example, a light script that corresponds to the category, subcategory, etc. during the term of 140. Light scripts that are associated with videoswelcome/visual node, which is generated internally or externally to the node is known, for example, disclosed in international patent application under serial No. IB2006/053524 (bar wipes is a no 003663), registered on September 27, 2006, which is assigned to the assignee of this application, the contents of which are incorporated fully by reference into this document. Light script appears to control the effect of ambient light, for example, defining and/or changing the color of the ambient lighting, hue, saturation, brightness, intensity, speed changes, etc. and/or other characteristics of the effect of the ambient lighting of one or more elements of ambient light.

Under this system, data of ambient light, for example, the light script executed with the ability to match the data categories and/or subcategories. In one embodiment, may store a table of categories, sub-categories, etc. that are available for system ambient lighting. The table may contain a list of categories, subcategories, etc. and the data of the scattered light, for example light scripts that correspond to the categories. The system according to option implementation uses the Association, such as one that may be stored in the table and defined category to identify and retrieve data ambient lighting that fit the category.

In one embodiment according to the present system, data ambient lighting can just install one and the and more defined characteristics of ambient light (for example, the color of the effect of ambient light) to match the category. In an additional embodiment, the data of ambient light can correspond to the length of the script, which determines the temporal sequence of lighting effects during the show. For example, for a defined category of weather appropriate to the weather, including thunderstorms, light script, including a flashing light, may be associated with this subcategory, and/or defined in a table.

During the 150 real system displays the corresponding light script associated with the data displayed node. Displaying the associated results length script in shaping the effect of ambient light when the light control script. Display light script may adjust and/or set the effect of ambient light, for example, defining and/or changing the color of ambient light, the intensity, duration and/or other characteristics of one or more elements of ambient light present system ambient lighting. In one embodiment, the light script may define the sequence in advance edited lighting effects that occur as a result of the reflection of the light script.

Under this system, the AK user moves from one data category to another category, the effect of ambient light will change to reflect each display category data. Thus, the effect of ambient light can be determined to facilitate the definition of data categories and thus to assist in the navigation data and the relevant categories.

According to a variant implementation of the category can be associated with one or more characteristics of the effect of ambient light and for additional details category (for example, the definition of sub-heading) can modulate the same or a characteristic or characteristics of the effect of ambient light. For example, the color of the ambient lighting can be installed using the categories of data to display, while the color intensity of ambient light can be determined in the site.

In one embodiment, additional data or metadata may be associated with data that can be used for modifying the data of ambient light that is extracted during steps 140 and thus, these additional data or metadata can be understood to represent sub-categories used in this document. For example, for data, for example, Teletext, additional data, for example, indicating the importance of data lines, freshness (e.g. the measures recently added) Teletext data, etc. can be treated as a subcategory under option to the implementation of this system. In this embodiment, the system may display one or more characteristics of light, such as color, hue, intensity, etc. in response to a data category, but these one or more characteristics may change if news are defined as important (for example, fresh history), were recently recorded and/or has recently occurred, etc. for Example, the associative effect of ambient light for a given category (for example, important news) may be red effect of ambient light. In one embodiment, if this category is important news had subcategory recent news, the effect of the ambient lighting can be changed to a bright red and/or changed to flashing red. Thus, as the category and subcategory can be used to determine the associated effect of ambient light. In this embodiment, a subcategory defined in the table do not need to associate with a particular category. For example, a subcategory of the latter data can be used to modify any of the other categories in addition to the important news. For example, perhaps the category of sports data in General leads to a permanent blue colour R ssennoga lighting. Subcategory latest news can modify the effect of ambient light to be bright blue and/or modified in flashing blue. Thus, the sub can be used to modify more than one category of the effect of ambient light and, therefore, does not need a direct Association with a given category.

Additional modifications can easily occur to a person skilled in the art and are intended to cover by the present system. Thus, the data category may be associated with a given light script and/or performance of a given length script under the present system to generate the data ambient lighting, including data for controlling the characteristics of ambient light, such as hue, saturation, brightness, color, intensity, rate of change, etc. of one or more elements of ambient light.

According to a variant implementation of the Association default categories for data coverage initially can be stored in the table. These associations can be modified according to a variant of implementation of the present system. In another embodiment, the categories may be defined in the table without data coverage. When I is m the event of the Association may be made and/or modified under the present system.

Figure 2 shows a block diagram 200 that shows the editing of the table of categories and associated data of ambient light (e.g. light scripts) according to a variant of implementation of the present system. During steps 210, the user operates the user interface according to a variant implementation of the input portion of the user interface for editing tables. The table is analyzed during steps 220, including categories and the corresponding data of ambient light, such as data defining the appropriate length scripts.

In one embodiment, the table may have a set of default categories and associated light scripts, which can be determined by the manufacturer of such master device. In this and/or alternative embodiment, the Association may be made and/or changed manually by the user as stated otherwise in this document.

The user may, for example, after some analysis of the table to make the determination as to whether to modify the table while 230. If the user should decide not to change the table, then part of the main user interface for editing the table is abandoned during the term of 270. If the user decides to modify the table in the time steps 230, the user is able to select and/or add a category during the term of 240. If the user should decide to modify the associated part of the table, then during the term of 250, the user can select, add and/or modify the Association data of ambient light with the selected/added category. For example, the user can select the Association for category length script, this category has no previous Association. The user can change the Association by selecting different length script for Association with an existing category. In one embodiment, a category may be associated with the selected light script by default, the preceding control by the user. The Association of a specific length script with data category, or with the Association of default or otherwise, can be replaced by the user. Thus, the user can select, add and/or modify the Association when necessary.

The modification process compliance categories for data ambient lighting, for example, the light script may be repeated up until you determine to save the table while 260. The process may be terminated during the term of 270.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to an image signal processing device, which enables to reproduce the appearance of an image on a plasma display panel (PDP), using other display devices such as a cathode-ray tube or liquid-crystal display (LCD), while processing signals. In an image processing module, such processing for an image signal for which an image received when the image signal is displayed in a display device of another type besides a PDP, may seem like an image displayed on a PDP. At least one reproduction colour shift is performed, which is associated with a moving image which forms as a result of that, RGB glow is included in the said order of reproduction, smoothing structure used in the direction of space, reproduction of the smoothing structure used in the direction of reproduction time, the interval between pixels, and reproduction of an array of strips. The invention can be used when, for example, an image which must look like an image displayed on a PDP, is displayed on an LCD.

EFFECT: possibility of obtaining a type of image on a plasma panel display reproduced on another display different from the plasma panel display such as a liquid-crystal display, while processing signals.

SUBSTANCE: it is suggested to do coding and decoding uniformly for multiple colouration formats. Based on control signal providing for type of colouration format of inlet signal from dynamic image, if colouration format is 4:2:0 or 4:2:2, the first unit of prediction mode detection with intra-coding and the first unit of predication image coding with intra-coding are applied to component of dynamic image inlet signal colouration component, and the second unit of prediction mode detection with intra-coding and the second unit of prediction image formation with intra-coding are applied to colouration component. If colouration format is 4:4:4, the first unit of prediction mode detection with intra-coding and the first unit of prediction image formation with intra-coding are applied to all colour components to do coding, and unit of coding with alternating length multiplexes control signal as data of coding, which should be applied to element of dynamic image sequence in bitstream.

EFFECT: improved mutual compatibility between coded video data of various colouration formats.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to encoding and decoding digital images. A device is proposed for encoding/decoding a dynamic image, in which during compressed encoding through input of data signals of the dynamic image in 4:4:4 format, the first encoding process is used for encoding three signals of colour components of input signals of the dynamic image in general encoding mode and the second encoding process is used for encoding three signals of colour components input signals of the dynamic image in corresponding independent encoding modes. The encoding process is carried out by selecting any of the first and second encoding processes, and compressed data contain an identification signal for determining which process was selected.

EFFECT: more efficient encoding dynamic image signals, without distinction of the number of readings between colour components.

SUBSTANCE: method is suggested for selection and processing of video content, which includes the following stages: quantisation of colour video space; making selection of dominating colour with application of mode, median of average or weighted average of pixel colorations; application of perception laws for further production of dominating colorations by means of the following steps: transformation of colorations; weighted average with application of pixel weight function affected by scene content; and expanded selection of dominating colour, where pixel weighing is reduced for majority pixels; and transformation of selected dominating colour into colour space of surrounding light with application of three-colour matrices. Colour of interest may additionally be analysed for creation of the right dominating colour, at that former video frames may control selection of dominating colours in the future frames.

EFFECT: creation of method to provide imitating surrounding lighting by means of dominating colour separation from selected video areas, with application of efficient data traffic, which codes averaged or characteristic values of colours.
