Special blend operations for wide area-of-view image generation utilizing a “floating auto exposure” scheme are described. Pixel values in the two images being stitched together are blended within a transition band around a “seam.” identified in the overlap region between the images after changes in exposure and/or color saturation are accounted for.

Method and device for providing information in view mode
A method and a device for providing information in a view mode is provided, which can discriminatively apply and display virtual information according to an importance value (or a priority) of objects in a reality image when the virtual information is mapped and displayed on the reality image of a real world acquired through a camera module in the view mode. The method includes displaying a reality image acquired in a view mode; analyzing an importance value of objects according to the reality image; determining a display range of virtual information for each of the objects according to the importance value of the objects; and displaying the virtual information for each of the objects according to the display range of the virtual information..
