1. Field of the Invention
The invention relates to a display and a weighted dot rendering method.
2. Description of the Related Art
In known display of the kind used in video, film and computer technology, so-called pixels are arranged along horizontally and/or vertically extending lines. The pixels generally consist of so-called dots representing the three basic colours red, green and blue. Dots are sources of luminous radiation the light of which is mixed to generate luminous mixed colours in a process referred to as additive mixing.
In computer monitors and television receivers the display is divided into a plurality of pixels arranged on a fixed grid or raster. Each pixel is controlled individually, with the pixels addressed from left to right and from the top to the bottom, for instance, as is customary practice for CRT screens.
EP 0 637 009 A2 discloses a method of controlling active LCD displays in which the dots are arranged in a mutually offset pattern to form a delta shape, with the dots of each colour group vertically interconnected by a control line. Horizontal control is effected pixelwise, meaning that the three dots of each RGB pixel are addressed at the same time. Further, each dot comprises a memory element and a switching element, whereby RGB data can be transmitted using synchronizing information, as is the case in conventional monitors, for example.
DE 36 06 404 A1 discloses a method of generating picture elements on a colour display, as well as a colour display. The method uses a light gate array of which the light gates are addressable individually by means of control circuitry in such a manner that the desired colour intensity is obtained by controlling the transmission properties of the respective light gate. Light sources are disposed behind the light gate to provide at least two primary colours and are switched in alternating light cycles at a repetition rate of at least 25 Hz, with the light gates being controlled synchronously therewith. Because of the inertia of the human eye, it is possible for a gate to display the desired colour.
One drawback of this kind of display is that the number of pixels is limited by the fixed grid, which limits the resolution and the picture sharpness as well. The finer the grid, the higher the resolution. The fineness of the grid itself is limited by manufacturing technology, however, because the cathode ray tubes that are used for the displays comprise so-called shadow masks having holes therein which cannot be reduced to whatever size unless one puts up with considerable expenditures.
U.S. Pat. No. 6,252,613 discloses a pixel addressing method using at least 2 scanning lines to address a pixel. This method increases the vertical spatial frequency comparing with conventional RGB stripe display and it does increase the overall resolution by a factor 1.5. The drawback is that it still applies rigid pixel addressing method which limits the display further to improve its both horizontal and vertical resolution.
Likewise, in LCD displays, the integration of a great number of thin film transistors (TFT) is extremely expensive and very prone to produce major amounts of rejects. In Plasma (PDP) or in FED displays, the technical and economical manufactured size of a RGB pixel is physically limited by the mass production technology itself and further reduction of the RGB pixel size for higher resolution cannot be achieved without huge manufacturing equipment cost and over proportional scraps which are economically not viable.
In LED displays, the placement of the LEDs is complicated and expensive as their space demand is predetermined by their shape.
The concept of using overlapping pixels by sharing dots with neighboring pixels to create a perceived higher resolution was disclosed in the patent U.S. Pat. No. 6,661,429, entitled “Dynamic Pixel Resolution for Displays Using Spatial Elements”. In the U.S. patent Publication No. 2003/0218618, which is a continuation-in-part of the Patent U.S. Pat. No. 6,661,429, and entitled “Dynamic Pixel Resolution, Brightness and Contrast for Displays Using Spatial Elements,” this method was further elaborated to use time sequential overlapping of frames to reach a perceived higher resolution by the human vision. In the U.S. patent Publication No. 2004/0150651, which is a continuation-in-part of the U.S. patent Publication No. 2003/0218618, and entitled “Dynamic Pixel Resolution, Brightness and Contrast for Displays Using Spatial Elements,” weighted dot rendering method was applied to replace the time sequential method for reaching the same overlapping pixels effects.
One objective of the present invention is to provide a display. The display comprises a plurality of pixel groups, each pixel group comprising a plurality of dots arranged in a predetermined identical matrix form, each pixel group having at least one first color dot, at least one second color dot and at least one third color dot, the pixel groups arranged in a matrix manner so as to form the display, wherein each color dot has a plurality of sides adjacent to the other dots with different color, and each color dot represents a luminance and a chrominance of a corresponding full color pixel data by grouping with neighboring dots to form a plurality of overlapping full color dynamic pixel groups.
Another objective of the present invention is to provide a method for converting a first data of a first arrangement to a second data of a second arrangement. The first arrangement (first static pixel) has a plurality of RGB groups, each RGB group has three color dots and three first data representing three color dots, and each RGB group has a corresponding coordinate value. The second arrangement (second static pixel) has a plurality of dots, each dot has a corresponding coordinate value and a second data representing the dot. The method of the invention comprises the steps of: determining a selected dot of the second arrangement (second static pixel); obtaining a corresponding coordinate value of the selected dot; determining a selected RGB group according to the corresponding coordinate value; obtaining the first data of the selected RGB group; and calculating the second data according to the first data of the selected RGB group.
Therefore, In contrast with conventional RGB stripe arrangement which has high spatial frequency in Xaxis but 0 spatial frequency in Y axis, the arrangements of the invention have good spatial frequency in both axes, thus giving a higher visual perception of high resolution after performing weighted dot rendering methods of the invention where each dot in the displays represent the luminance and chrominance of each corresponding RGB pixel by forming with neighboring dots overlapping dynamic pixels. Since our human vision is more sensitive for luminance and less sensitive for chrominance, if each dot is small enough or the viewing distance is far enough so that we cannot see each Red, Green or Blue dot, in this case it is unnecessary to place in each position on the display a full RGB like in the case of conventional RGB stripe display but we can use the pixel arrangement in connection with weighted dot rendering methods to reach the same luminance and chrominance using only one single dot at a certain position and not a full RGB pixel and this concept is named as Visual Perception Technology.
According to the arrangement and method of the invention, the principle of Visual Perception Technology (VP) consists of:
The invention investigates further different weighted dot rendering methods with its typical rendering parameter sets. The arrangements of the invention are further claimed for pixel groups with three colors and four colors.
It is the object of the present invention to provide a display of the aforesaid kind which has a higher optical resolution for a given grid.
It is another object of the present invention to provide methods which enables an enhanced resolution to be obtained for dot-addressed displays.
It is another objective of the present invention to form pixel groups of quad pixels of 4 dots arranged in a matrix of 2×2 to represent the three primary colors Red, Green and Blue, wherein same color dot cannot be adjacent in the X and Y axis, and wherein the area of the first color dot is the same as that of the third color dot, the area of two second color dots is the same as that of the third color dot. A weighted dot rendering method is applied in this display to create a perceived high resolution display.
It is another objective of the present invention to form pixels group of quad pixels of 4 dots arranged in a matrix of 2×2 to represent the three primary colors Red, Green, Blue and a forth color White, wherein same color dot can not be adjacent in the X and Y axis. A weighted dot rendering method is applied in this display to create a perceived high resolution display.
It is another objective of the present invention to perform a color correction and enhancement method to match the chrominance showed in the 4 colors quad pixels groups display with the chrominance of the input data.
The invention relates to a display comprising pixels and dots, as well as methods of controlling said display.

According to the above method of the invention, the rendering weight is between 0% to 100%, and the rendering weight is derived from a first numerator and a first denominator. The first denominator is selected from one of 2^{n }groups, for example: 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. Besides, a second rendering weight being equal to (100%−the rendering weight), and the second rendering weight is derived from a second numerator and a second denominator. The second denominator is selected from one of 2^{n }groups, for example: 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. The coefficients in the above method of the invention are calculated from the second rending weight. Therefore, in calculation, that the first data of the selected RGB group are multiplied by the rendering weight can be easily calculated by shifting the binary value of the first data of the selected RGB group. The same calculating process can be applied to the second rending weight and the coefficients.
The coefficients in the above method of the invention can be calculated for considering the factors of the area neighboring the selected dot and the distance to the selected dot. For example, if the dots of the second arrangement are quadrate shaped as shown in FIG. 1B, the area between the neighbor dots and the selected dot are the same. The coefficients are the same. In the twenty-fourth method of the invention, the rendering weight (W) may be 4/8, the first coefficient may be 1/8, the second coefficient may be 1/8, the third coefficient may be 1/8 and the fourth coefficient may be 1/8.
If the dots of the second arrangement are stripe shaped as shown in FIG. 1A, the area between the neighbor dots and the selected dot are different. The coefficients are different. Therefore, in the twenty-fourth method of the invention, the rendering weight (W) may be 5/8, the first coefficient may be 1/8, the second coefficient may be 1/8, the third coefficient may be 1/16 and the fourth coefficient may be 1/16. The third coefficient and the fourth coefficient are smaller than the first coefficient and the second coefficient.
The above method of the invention can be utilized to calculation the second data of the dot in the second arrangement. The second arrangement may be one of the arrangements in FIGS. 1A to 10 of the invention. However, the second arrangement does not limited to the arrangements of the invention. The pixel arrangement as shown in FIGS. 8B to 8C comprises four dots with four colors, typically Red, Green, Blue and White. Since the color White in a four dots group will increase the light intensity of the said group, special attention is made to avoid the color shifting by balancing the white with the R, G and B color in the said pixel. The simplest method is to assigned a gray level for the White dot less or equal to the minimum gray level of the RGB dots in the said RGBW pixel so that White is only on if R or G or B is not 0 because the white balance is calibrated as gray level of R=gray level of G=gray level of B. In all black state or in pure primary color state of only Red, or only Green or only Blue, white dots stay in off condition and because for LCD with backlight and no color pigment at white dots color filter position, white light leakage from the backlight may render the black screen not so black and pure primary color not so pure, a gray pigment should be applied to the position of the white dots to compensate the white light leakage and the gray level value of White should be chosen less than then minimum of R,G,B of the corresponding RGBW dot in order minimize the color shifting due to white light.
In FIG. 8B, the first color dot (A) may be a red dot, the second color dot (B) may be a green dot, the third color dot (C) may be a blue dot, and the fourth color dot (D) may be a white dot. Therefore, the arrangement of FIG. 8B comprises a plurality of white dots. In calculating the second data of the selected white dot, because there is no white dot in the conventional RGB group, the second data of the selected white dot is smaller or equal to a minimal value among the first data of the selected RGB group. For example, if the first data of the selected RGB group are R=20, G=50, B=40, the second data of the selected white dot is smaller than 20, or the second data of the selected white dot is equal to 20.
In each quad pixel of 4 dots of equal light emitting area, each single color dot has 1/4 light emitting area of the said pixel while in the 3 dots pixel like RGB stripe pixel, each dot has 1/3 light emitting area of the said 3 dots pixel so that in order to compensate the reduced light emitting area of each dot in the quad pixel, light intensity of each dot should be enhanced to 4/3 times to match with the bigger light emitting area of each dot in the 3 dots pixel.
According to the second arrangement having a plurality of white dots, after the second data of the second arrangement are calculated, the method of the invention further comprises a color enhancing step. Firstly, a maximum value among the second data of a selected pixel group is obtained, and the maximum value compares with a gray level coefficient. The gray level coefficient is equal to a maximum gray level multiplied by a first ratio. For example, in the pixel group 84 of FIG. 8C, the second data of the red color dot 841 is equal to 180, the second data of the green color dot 842 is equal to 150, the second data of the blue color dot 843 is equal to 130, and the second data of the white color dot 844 is equal to 120. The maximum value among the second data of the pixel group 84 is equal to 180. If the maximum gray level is equal to 255 and the first ratio is equal to 3/4, the gray level coefficient is equal to 191 (255×3/4). The maximum value 180 compares with the gray level coefficient 191.
When the maximum value is smaller than or equal to the gray level coefficient, an enhancing second data of each dot in the selected pixel group is calculated by multiplying the second data of each dot in the selected pixel group by a second ratio. The second ratio is a reverse ratio of the first ratio. According to the above example, because the maximum value 180 is smaller than the gray level coefficient 191, the enhancing second data of each dot in the selected pixel group is calculated. The second ratio is equal to 4/3 in the example. Therefore, the enhancing second data of the red color dot 841 is equal to 180×4/3, the enhancing second data of the green color dot 842 is equal to 150×4/3, the enhancing second data of the blue color dot 843 is equal to 130×4/3, and the enhancing second data of the white color dot 844 is equal to 120×4/3.
If the maximum value is larger than the gray level coefficient, an enhancing second data of each dot in the selected pixel group is calculated by multiplying the second data of each dot in the selected pixel group by a third ratio. The third ratio is a ratio of the maximum gray level to the maximum value. For example, If the maximum value is equal to 230, the maximum value is larger than the gray level coefficient 191. The third ratio is equal to 255/230. Each the second data of each dot in the selected pixel group is multiplied by the third ratio so as to prevent the enhancing second data from exceeding the maximum gray level.
If the first data of the first arrangement with a first resolution of X1-RGB-Y1, and the second data of the second arrangement with a third resolution of X2-DOT-Y2, X1 is not equal to X2, and Y1 is not equal to Y2, the method of the invention further comprises a scaling step. The scaling step is used for scaling the first data of the first arrangement with the first resolution of X1-RGB-Y1 to a second resolution of X2-RGB-Y2 so as to match with the second data of the second arrangement with the third resolution of X2-DOT-Y2, wherein the RGB is equal to three DOTs.
