Image processing controller for performing image processing in cooperation with image forming apparatus, image forming system including image processing controller, controlling image forming system, and storage medium


An image processing controller capable of preventing an image forming apparatus from being caused to return from a power saving state inefficiently, and wastefully consuming electric power. The controller acquires the status of the apparatus.

Data overlay for animated map weather display and rapidly loading animated raster data


A data visualization technique rapidly loads images to decrease data transfer time and associated bandwidth cost for animation effects in displays of data, and includes initially loading raster imagery at a coarser zoom level than a current view on the display, and then manipulating the imagery using general-purpose image manipulation algorithms to interpolate data points as a user adjusts the zoom level. In this manner, the data visualization technique intentionally displays a coarser view than that selected, rather than transferring entirely new imagery or datasets, and manipulates the imagery as necessary to avoid loading more data from a remote server to the local client each time the user adjusts the view..

Apparatus and processing graphics primitives


A method and apparatus includes primitive setup circuitry for determining a plurality of functions for an input graphics primitive, including an edge function associated with each edge of the input graphics primitive and a depth function associated with the input graphics primitive. Rasterization circuitry performs a rasterization operation in order to calculate position data for a plurality of graphics fragments to be used to represent the input graphics primitive.

Graphics processing systems


A tile-based graphics processing pipeline comprising a rasteriser 3, a renderer 6, a tile buffer 10 configured to store rendered fragment data locally to the graphics processing pipeline prior to that data being written out to an external memory, a write out stage 13 configured to write data stored in the tile buffer to an external memory, and a programmable processing stage 14. The programmable processing stage 14 is operable under the control of graphics program instructions to read fragment data stored in the tile buffer 10 on a random access basis, perform a processing operation using the read fragment data, and write the result of the processing operation into the tile buffer 10 or to an external memory..

Untransformed display lists in a tile based rendering system


3-d rendering systems include a rasterization section that can fetch untransformed geometry, transform geometry and cache data for transformed geometry in a memory. As an example, the rasterization section can transform the geometry into screen space.

Method for dynamic background reduction


A method is provided for reducing a background in a raster image as generated from capturing a hardcopy original. The background indicates a deviation between a lightness value of a subset of pixels in the raster image and a maximum lightness value of raster image input values, contrasting with dark information in the image.

Method of and processing graphics


A tile-based graphics processing pipeline that uses primitive lists that can encompass plural rendering tiles includes a primitive list reading unit that reads primitive lists for a tile being rendered to determine primitives to be processed for the tile and a rasteriser that rasterises input primitives to generate graphics fragments to be processed. The pipeline further comprises a comparison unit between the primitive list reading unit and the rasteriser that for primitives that have been read from primitive lists that include plural rendering tiles, compares the location of the primitive in the render target to the location of the tile being rendered, and then either sends the primitive onwards to the rasteriser if the comparison determines that the primitive could lie at least partially within the tile, or does not send the primitive to the rasteriser if the comparison determines that the primitive definitely does not lie within the tile..

Rasterisation in graphics processing systems


The rasteriser 10 also identifies when a given smaller patch of the render output is found to entirely pass the edge test for an edge of the primitive in question when the larger patch encompassing that smaller patch is tested, notes that event in state information associated with the primitive edge in question, and then uses that state information to skip the testing of the edge in question against the smaller patch of the render output.. .

Hidden surface removal in graphics processing systems


A graphics processing pipeline 1 includes a rasteriser 3 that tests patches representing respective different regions of a render output against the edges of primitives 2 to determine if the primitive at least partially covers the patch and an early depth test stage 4 that performs early depth tests for primitives in respect of patches of the render output that the primitive has been found by the rasteriser at least partially to cover, by using depth test information 5 associated with a patch indicating the number and distribution of different depth value regions associated with the patch to determine the depth value region or regions associated with the patch that the primitive should be depth tested against, and then performing a depth test or tests for the primitive in respect of the respective determined depth value region or regions associated with the patch.. .

Color registration error compensation in color printing


A multicolor image can include multiple overlaid items including a black region covering a color region. raster image processing adds the color data to color pixels of the raster data print page uniformly across the area of the raster data print page that corresponds to the color region of the multicolor image, and adds the black data to over-print pixels (where the black region covers the color region in the multicolor image).
