Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 396: Photography

Photographic apparatus, generally for recording a picture made by a source of light on a photographic medium. It includes fluid-treating apparatus for development of film, a removable film-holder unit, hood, camera housing, camera setting indicator and certain accessories related to photography not otherwise provided for such as studio structure, camera mounting or rest, camera attachment, retouching, or burnishing device. Non-chemical processes involving photographic apparatus are included in this class.

Subclass 121: Plural focusing or rangefinding areas
Subclass 147: Having indicator
Subclass 60: PSEUDO ZOOM
Subclass 79: Having focus operation

Class 348: Television

Generating, processing, transmitting or transiently displaying a sequence of images, either locally or remotely, in which the local light variations composing the images may change with time.

Subclass 36: PANORAMIC
Subclass 208.3: Differentiating unintentional from purposeful camera movement (pan, tilt)
Subclass 222.1: Combined image signal generator and general image signal processing
Subclass 229.1: Combined automatic gain control and exposure control (i.e., sensitivity control)
Subclass 230.1: Readout of solid-state image sensor considered or altered
Subclass 231.99: With details of static memory for output image (e.g., for a still camera)
Subclass 243: Dark current
Subclass 251: Shading or black spot correction
Subclass 267: Separate complete images on face of pickup device
Subclass 333.01: With electronic viewfinder or display monitor
Subclass 333.06: Movable or rotatable unit
Subclass 333.11: Use for previewing images (e.g., variety of image resolutions, etc.)
Subclass 333.12: Modification of displayed image
Subclass 345: Focus control
Subclass 371: Flash or strobe
Subclass 563: For display of additional information
Subclass 569: Receiver indicator (e.g., on screen display)
Subclass 656: Receiver type
Subclass 734: Remote control

Class 382: Image Analysis

This is the generic class for apparatus and corresponding methods for the automated analysis of an image or recognition of a pattern. Included herein are systems that transform an image for the purpose of (a) enhancing its visual quality prior to recognition, (b) locating and registering the image relative to a sensor or stored prototype, or reducing the amount of image data by discarding irrelevant data, and (c) measuring significant characteristics of the image.

Subclass 103: Target tracking or detecting
Subclass 118: Using a facial characteristic
Subclass 165: Pattern recognition or classification using color
Subclass 167: Color correction
Subclass 190: Feature extraction
Subclass 224: Classification
Subclass 274: Intensity, brightness, contrast, or shading correction
Subclass 289: Determining amount an image is rotated or skewed
Subclass 296: To rotate an image
Subclass 297: Rotation of image is limited to 90 degrees, 180 degrees, or 270 degrees
Subclass 305: Image storage or retrieval

Class 386: Television Signal Processing For Dynamic Recording Or Reproducing

Apparatus and corresponding processes for processing a sequence of images, in which the light variation composing the images may change with time for dynamic recording or reproducing of the sequence of images. The processing involves the following steps: (a) Receiving a sequence of images from a local (e.g., camera, etc.) or remote source (e.g. broadcasting station, satellite, cable, etc.); (b) Converting the received sequence of images into a form suitable for dynamic storage, which form may or may not be reproduced later; or (c) Converting retrieved information from a dynamic storage medium into a sequence of images.

Class 358: Facsimile And Static Presentation Processing

Communication or reproduction of a static image or sequence of static images in which the local light, or density variations composing the image do not vary with time by a method or apparatus involving at least one of the following steps: (1) scanning a static image to capture an image-containing area by resolving it into an area; (2) communication of an image-representative signal or image-representative data over any supporting communication network; or (3) reproduction of an image-containing area in response to an image-representative signal or image-representative image data by reproducing a corresponding image area which at least one of the two dimensions is elemental, simultaneously or in a sequence. In this class, a facsimile system or method is a system or method for the communication or reproduction of an arbitrarily composed image in which the local light, or density variations composing the image do not vary with time, such as documents maps, charts, photographs, etc., but not motion picture film or video.

Subclass 1.15: Communication

Class 399: Electrophotography

Electrophotographically reproducing an original by the action of light directly from the original to a photoconductive member whose electrical conductivity, electrical charge, magnetic condition, or electrical emissivity of a photoconductive medium is selectively altered by the action of light to produce an electrostatic latent image which persists after imaging based upon differences in such electrical property. The latent image is made visible by development; and the developed image may be made permanent by transfer and fixing, or fixing.

Subclass 58: Concentration control

Class 345: Computer Graphics Processing And Selective Visual Display Systems

Processes and apparatus for selective electrical control of two or more light-generating or light-controlling display elements* in accordance with a received or stored image data signal. The image data includes character, graphical information or display attribute data. The image data may include, for example, information data from a peripheral input device, from the reception of a television signal, from the recognition of image data, or from the generation or creation of image data by a computer.

Subclass 158: Including orientation sensors (e.g., infrared, ultrasonic, remotely controlled)
Subclass 207: Light detection means (e.g., with photodetector)

Class 40: Card, Picture, Or Sign Exhibiting

Means for displaying information by printed or painted cards, calendars, photographic transparency viewers, railroad train station indicators, pictures, labels or tags or index files. Picture frames and stands for supporting pictures are also included. Albums are included in subclasses Changing exhibitors, Hinged leaves; Changing exhibitors, Pivoted plates, and in Picture frames, Mats, Mounts and backs, Pocketed. Such station-indicators as change the reading matter displayed are included under the several subclasses of Changing exhibitors.

Subclass 700: PICTURE FRAME
