(EN) DISPLAY CONTROL APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE COMMANDE D'AFFICHAGE
Abstract
(EN) Provided is a display control apparatus including: a display control unit configured to distribute brightness information to a plurality of display devices in accordance with external light amount information from a sensor; and a plurality of drive units configured to drive the plurality of display devices on a basis of the brightness information distributed by the display control unit.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif et un procédé de commande d'affichage selon lesquels il est possible d'effectuer une commutation sans interruption entre plusieurs dispositifs d'affichage. Selon l'invention, conformément à des informations de lumière externe provenant d'une interface de capteur, une unité de commande dérive une valeur de sortie d'affichage d'une image qui est fournie en entrée depuis une unité de fourniture d'image, et conformément aux informations de lumière externe, attribue la valeur de sortie d'affichage dérivée (informations de luminosité d'affichage) à plusieurs dispositifs d'affichage. Lors de l'attribution, il serait possible d'employer non seulement les informations de lumière externe provenant de l'interface de capteur dans l'unité de commande, mais également des informations telles que des informations d'énergie disponible d'une unité de commande d'ensemble, des informations d'éléments d'image de l'image qui est fournit en entrée depuis l'unité de fourniture d'image, ou des informations de mouvement. Il serait par exemple possible d'appliquer la présente invention à un système de commande d'affichage.
