Patent for Image Control Device Assigned to Fuji Photo Film

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 22 -- Yasuo Takane of Asaka, Japan, has developed an image control device with information-based image correcting capability.

According to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office: "A digital camera includes an image control processing section in which a memory controller controls a video memory, a bus arbitrator, a display sequencer, and a timing adjusting section.

"Image data are read out of the video memory and fed to a data corrector. The display sequencer adjusts a sampling order in accordance with the combination of luminance data and color data constituting the image data, while varying a packet size."

An abstract of the invention, released by the Patent Office, said: "The bus arbitrator arbitrates access requests in accordance with priority to thereby reduce the occupation ratio of a bus. The data corrector restores and processes the image data and then delivers them to a buffer memory included in the timing adjusting section."

The inventor was issued U.S. Patent No. 7,164,442 on Jan. 16.

The patent has been assigned to Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd., Kanagawa, Japan.

The original application was filed on Sept. 12, 2001.
