Fixed pattern noise reduction
A method, including receiving signals, from a rectangular array of sensor elements arranged in rows and columns, corresponding to an image captured by the array. The method also includes analyzing the signals along a row or a column to identify one or more local turning points, and processing the signals at the identified local turning points to recognize fixed pattern noise in the captured image.

Image processing device for scrolling display of an image
An image processing device reads data of plural pixels constituting an image in plural rows and plural columns from a display memory and displays the image at a display device. All of the pixel data constituting the image is continuously read in a sequence of addresses, continuing from an address that stores pixel data that is read last in one row to an address that stores pixel data that is read first in the next row.

Drive device for liquid crystal display device
A gate driver selects a gate line of an odd-numbered row and a gate line of an even-numbered row subsequent thereto and sets the gate line of the even-numbered row to a selected-period potential with a delay of a predetermined time from a timing when the gate line of the odd-numbered row is set to the selected-period potential. After that, the gate driver sets the potential of the gate line set at the selected-period potential to a nonselected-period potential.

Display screen, in particular for autostereoscopy
A display screen (e), advantageously of the flat type, comprising a matrix of pixels (p) arranged in rows and columns perpendicular to said rows, each pixel comprising three or more sub-pixels (sp) of different colors (rgb), in alignment in the direction of said rows and presenting a shape that is elongate, the screen being characterized in that each said sub-pixel presents a main dimension forming a non-zero angle α relative to the direction of said columns. The screen may advantageously be fitted with an angle selection array for autostereoscopic display having main axes forming an angle α relative to the direction of said columns and at a pitch that enables m≧2 sub-pixels to be covered..
