Title
(EN) METHOD OF AND UNIT FOR DISPLAYING AN IMAGE WITH SUB-FIELDS
(FR) PROCEDE ET UNITE DESTINES A AFFICHER UNE IMAGE DANS DES SOUS-CHAMPS
Abstract
(EN) A display device (506) is driven in a number of sub-fields. Each of the sub-fields is for outputting a respective illumination level by the display device. In each sub-field, a pixel of the displayed image may emit an amount of light corresponding to the particular sub-field, depending on whether it is switched on or not. A required intensity level of the pixel is realized by selecting an appropriate combination of sub-fields in which the pixel is switched on. According to the invention, a selection is made from the possible intensity levels that can be generated by all possible combinations of sub-fields. This selection contains those intensity levels that can be generated by sub-fields that are temporally close together, thus causing that the light of a pixel is emitted during a relatively short period. The image display unit (300) has a means (306) that is arranged to store the combinations of sub-fields for the respective selected intensity levels.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif d'affichage (506) piloté dans un nombre de sous-champs. Chacun des sous-champs sert à sortir un niveau d'éclairage respectif pour le dispositif d'affichage. Dans chaque sous-champ, un pixel de l'image affichée peut, s'il est activé, émettre une quantité de lumière correspondant au sous-champ particulier. On réalise un niveau d'intensité recherché du pixel par sélection d'une combinaison appropriée de sous-champs. Selon l'invention, on effectue une sélection à partir des niveaux d'intensité possibles qui peuvent être produits par toutes les combinaisons possibles de sous-champs. Cette sélection contient les niveaux d'intensité qui peuvent être produits par des sous-champs qui sont temporellement proches les uns des autres, ce qui a pour résultat une durée relativement courte de l'émission lumineuse d'un pixel. L'unité d'affichage d'image (300) comprend des moyens (306) conçus de façon à stocker les combinaisons des sous-champs concernant les niveaux d'intensité sélectionnés respectifs.
