Description

[0001]
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to an image display device and an image display method, and in particular, in a non-self-luminous configuration in which an image is displayed on a screen by light from a plurality of light sources, chromaticity and brightness of the screen, and color unevenness and brightness unevenness in the screen. The present invention relates to an image display device and an image display method that can easily calibrate the image.
[0002]
[Prior art]
As a conventional image display device having a function of correcting variations in chromaticity and luminance of a screen, the chromaticity and luminance of the screen are detected by a single color sensor, and the above chromaticity and luminance are detected based on the detected data. There was a thing which corrects (for example, refer to patent documents 1). In addition, there is one that detects the chromaticity and luminance of the screen by a single color sensor, and corrects and controls the color adjustment of the image processing in accordance with the variation amount of the detected value from the logical value (for example, see Patent Document 2). .
[0003]
On the other hand, as a conventional non-self-luminous image display device that displays an image on a screen by light from a light source, a light source is composed of light emitters of a plurality of colors, and light from different color light emitters is mixed. Accordingly, there is an apparatus that functions as a light source and adjusts the chromaticity and luminance of a display screen by individually controlling the light emission amount of each color light emitter. Furthermore, there are some provided with a plurality of the light sources.
[0004]
For example, in a non-self-luminous flat panel display such as a liquid crystal display that transmits light from a light source such as a backlight and displays an image on a screen, R (Red), G (Green), and B (Blue) 3 There is one in which one or a plurality of light sources are constituted by a plurality of color light emitters each formed by arranging a plurality of color LEDs.
[0005]
In such a non-self-luminous image display device, the amount of light emitted from the light emitter of the light source varies with time, and the amount of variation in the amount of light emitted from the light emitter of each color varies. Since the luminance fluctuates and color unevenness or luminance unevenness occurs in the screen, it is necessary to calibrate chromaticity, luminance, color unevenness, or luminance unevenness.
[0006]

[0007]
[Problems to be solved by the invention]
However, the conventional image display device that corrects the variation in chromaticity and luminance is applied to the non-self-luminous conventional image display device that includes the plurality of light sources, so that adjustment of chromaticity and luminance and color unevenness are applied. When correcting brightness unevenness, there are the following problems.
[0008]
Since the chromaticity and brightness of the screen where light from multiple light sources are mixed are detected by a single color sensor, the correlation between the detected data and each light source is not taken into account, and the adjustment processing of chromaticity and brightness diverges. There was a possibility. In order to prevent such divergence of adjustment processing, it is necessary to detect the chromaticity and luminance by individually emitting light from each light source. Since detection in the area is necessary, it takes time and effort to detect the light amount and adjust the light emission amount.
[0009]
In addition, a conversion error, a bit drop, or the like occurs in image processing depending on the degree of variation, and image quality may be deteriorated separately from correction of color unevenness and brightness unevenness.
[0010]
The present invention has been made to solve such a conventional problem, and in a non-self-luminous configuration in which an image is displayed on the screen by light from a plurality of light sources, the image quality is not deteriorated. It is an object of the present invention to provide an image display apparatus and an image display method capable of easily calibrating the chromaticity and luminance of the image and the color unevenness and luminance unevenness in the screen.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
FIG. 1 is a configuration diagram of a display panel in an image display apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 2 is a diagram for explaining a configuration for light source calibration and a light source calibration procedure in the image display apparatus according to the embodiment of the present invention.
[0014]
1 and 2, the image display apparatus according to this embodiment is a non-self-luminous image display apparatus such as a liquid crystal display, and includes a display unit 11 of a display panel, a light guide plate 12 of the display panel, and a display. The panel includes four light sources L1, L2, L3, and L4, four color sensors S1, S2, S3, and S4, a light source control unit 20, a light source driving unit 21, and an A / D conversion unit 22. . The light source control unit 20 includes a light source emission amount calculation unit 23, a correlation data memory 24, a light source reference emission amount data memory 25, and a light source control amount calculation unit 26.
[0015]
The light source Ln (n is an arbitrary value of 1, 2, 3 and 4) is composed of an R (Red) light emitter, a G (Green) light emitter, and a B (Blue) light emitter. For example, an R light emitter is an array of R LEDs, a G light emitter is a G LED, and a B light emitter is a B LED. The light source Ln can individually adjust the light emission amounts of the R light emitter, the G light emitter, and the B light emitter (R channel, G channel, B channel) independently.
[0016]
R, G, B light from the three color light emitters of the light source Ln is controlled for each pixel, mixed by the light guide plate 12 and diffused to the display unit 11, whereby a color image is displayed on the display unit 11. Is displayed.
[0017]
The color sensor Sm (m is an arbitrary value of 1, 2, 3, and 4) is disposed around the display unit 11 and in the vicinity of a part of the area Am on the display unit 11. Light amounts of R, G, B3 colors (R, G, B3 channels) in the area Am of light from the light sources L1 to L4 mixed by the light guide plate 12 are detected, and the detected light amounts of these R, G, B3 channels are detected. The data is output to the A / D converter 22. Since the chromaticity and luminance in the area Am are known from the detected light amounts of the three channels, the color sensor Sm detects the chromaticity and luminance in the area Am, and A / D converts the detected chromaticity and detected luminance. In other words, the data is output to the unit 22.
[0018]
Here, each of the partial areas A1, A2, A3, and A4 on the display unit 11 is expressed as being clearly divided by a dotted line in FIG. 1, but this is only the position of the area. The range actually detected by each color sensor is not clearly divided in this way.
[0019]
Further, when installing the color sensors S1 to S4, in order to eliminate detection errors other than light from the light sources L1 to L4, it is desirable to have a structure that blocks incident light other than light from the light sources L1 to L4. .
[0020]
The light source drive unit 21 individually drives each light emitter of each light source, and individually determines the light emission amount of each light emitter according to the light source control data from the light source control amount calculation unit 26 of the light source control unit 20. Control.
[0021]
The A / D conversion unit 22 converts the analog value of the detected light amount output from each color sensor into a digital value, and outputs the detected light amount data to the light source emission amount calculation unit 23 of the light source control unit 20.
[0022]
In the light source control unit 20, the correlation data memory 24 stores between the detected light amounts of the R, G, and B channels of the respective color sensors and the light emission amounts of the R, G, and B channels of the respective light sources L 1 to L 4. The correlation data is stored in advance. The correlation data is also correlation data between the detection chromaticity and detection luminance of each color sensor and the emission chromaticity and emission luminance of each light source.
[0023]
The light source emission amount calculation unit 23 uses the correlation data stored in the correlation data memory 24 to calculate the detected emission amounts of the R, G, and B channels of the respective light sources from the detected light amounts of the respective color sensors. The detected light emission amount data is output to the light source control amount calculation unit 26. In other words, the light source emission amount calculation unit 23 may calculate the detected emission chromaticity and the detected emission luminance of each light source from the detected chromaticity and the detected luminance of each of the color sensors.
[0024]
The light source reference light emission amount data memory 25 stores light source reference light emission amount data composed of reference light emission amounts of the respective light emitters of the respective light sources in advance. The light source reference light emission amount data is data composed of the reference light emission chromaticity and the reference light emission luminance of each light source.
[0025]
The light source control amount calculation unit 26 compares the detected light emission amount data for each light emitter of each light source with the light source reference light emission amount data for that light emitter stored in the memory 25, and the light emission. Light source control data for controlling the light emission amount of the light emitter is output to the light source drive unit 21 so that the light emission amount of the body matches the reference light emission amount.
[0026]
The light emission amounts of the respective light emitters of the respective light sources are initially set so that the chromaticity and the luminance are uniform over the entire screen of the display unit 11 and there is no color unevenness or luminance unevenness. However, due to the variation with time of the light emission luminance of each light emitter and the variation with time of the light emitter, the uniformity of chromaticity and luminance within the screen is lost, resulting in color unevenness and luminance unevenness. In particular, if there is a variation in the temporal change among the R, G, and B light emitters, a change in chromaticity appears remarkably, and the visibility decreases. For this reason, it is necessary to calibrate the amount of light emitted from each illuminant of each light source to maintain the uniformity of chromaticity and luminance within the screen as in the initial setting.
[0027]
The procedure for light source calibration in the image display apparatus of this embodiment will be described below. The light source calibration procedure of this embodiment is characterized by using a correlation between the detected light amount of each channel of each color sensor and the emitted light amount of each light emitter of each light source. First, the correlation between the amount of light detected by the color sensor and the amount of light emitted from the light source will be described.
[0028]
First, there is a correlation between the light emission amounts of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source Ln and the chromaticity and luminance of the light source Ln. The light emission amount of the R light emitter of the light source Ln is R Ln , the light emission amount of the G light emitter of the light source Ln is G Ln , the light emission amount of the B light emitter of the light source Ln is B Ln, and the tristimulus value of the light emission amount R Ln is ( X RLn, Y RLn, Z RLn ), the tristimulus values of the light emission quantity G Ln (X GLn, Y GLn , Z GLn), the tristimulus values of the light emission quantity B Ln (X BLn, Y BLn , Z BLn) and Then, the tristimulus values (X Ln , Y Ln , Z Ln ) of the light source Ln are expressed as the following equation (1).
[Expression 1]
[0029]
In the above equation (1), C n is the light emission amount (R Ln , G Ln , B Ln ) of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source Ln and the tristimulus values (X Ln , Y Ln , Z) of the light source Ln. Ln ) is a 3 × 3 matrix showing the correlation. This correlation matrix C n is a matrix unique to each light source, and can be obtained in advance by actual measurement or the like.
[0030]
In addition, the light in the partial area Am of the display unit 11 is a mixed light of the light that has reached the area Am with a specific attenuation factor from each of the four light sources L1 to L4. The tristimulus values (X An , Y An , Z An ) of light in such an area Am are expressed as the following equation (2).
[Expression 2]
[0031]
In the above equation (2), k mn is a coefficient representing the attenuation rate until the light from the light source Ln reaches the area Am. In the above equation (2), the attenuation factors of the X, Y, and Z light from the light source Ln are all the same value kmn . However, when the attenuation factors of the X, Y, and Z light are different, the attenuation is performed. The rate coefficient kmn is a value unique to each of the X, Y, and Z lights.
[0032]
The n-th term in the above expression (2) represents the contribution ratio of the light emission amount of the light source Ln in the area Am. When all of the light sources L1 to L4 are caused to emit light, the tristimulus values (X Am , Y Am , Z Am ) of light in the area Am are obtained by adding all the first to fourth terms of the formula (2). It will be a thing. For example, when only the light source L1 is caused to emit light, the tristimulus values (X Am , Y Am , Z Am ) of light in the area Am are the first term of the above equation (2).
[0033]
The color sensor Sm detects light in the area Am. There is a correlation between the tristimulus values of light in the area Am and the R, G, B detected light amounts of the color sensor Sm. If the tristimulus values of light in the area Am are (X Am , Y Am , Z Am ), when the spectral sensitivity characteristics of the color sensor Sm satisfy the router condition, the R, G, B detected light amounts (R Sm , G Sm , B Sm ) are expressed as the following equation (3).
[Equation 3]
[0034]
In the above equation (3), D m is the tristimulus value (X Am , Y Am , Z Am ) of light in the area Am and the detected light amount (R Sm , G Sm , B Sm ) of the color sensor Sm. 3 × 3 matrix representing correlation. The correlation matrix Dm is a matrix unique to each area (each color sensor), for example, and can be obtained in advance by actual measurement or the like.
[0035]
By combining the above formulas (1) to (3), the light emission amounts (R L1 , G L1 , B L1 ) to (R L4 , G) of the R, G, B color light emitters of the four light sources L1 to L4 are combined. L4 , B L4 ) and the following equation (4) representing the correlation between the light amount detected by the color sensor Sm (R Sm , G Sm , B Sm ) can be derived.
[Expression 4]
[0036]
In the above equation (4), E mn represents the light emission amounts (R Ln , G Ln , B Ln ) of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source Ln and the detected light amounts (R Sm , G Sm , B) of the color sensor Sm. Sm ) is a 3 × 3 matrix and E mn = D m × k mn × C n .
[0037]
The n-th term in the above expression (4) represents the contribution rate of the light emission amount of the light source Ln in the detected light amount (R Sm , G Sm , B Sm ) of the color sensor Sm. When all of the light sources L1 to L4 are caused to emit light, the detected light amount (R Sm , G Sm , B Sm ) of the color sensor Sm is obtained by adding all the first to fourth terms of the above formula (4). . For example, when only the light source L1 is caused to emit light, the detected light amount (R Sm , G Sm , B Sm ) of the color sensor Sm is the first term of the above equation (4).
[0038]
Correlation matrices E 1m to E 4m indicate the amount of light emitted from only one of the R, G, and B light emitters of light source Lm among light sources L1 to L4 and the color sensor S1. ˜S4 detected light amounts (R S1 , G S1 , B S1 ) to (R S4 , G S4 , B S4 ) can be obtained in advance.
[0039]
For example, when only the R light emitter of the light source L1 emits light, the light emission amount R L1 of the light emitter and the detected light amounts (R S1 , G S1 , B S1 ) to (R S4 , G S4 , B) of the color sensors S1 to S4 . S4) with, it is possible to obtain the three values of the first column of the correlation matrix E 11 to E 41, the light emission amount G L1 and color sensor S1~ the emitters when light is emitted only G light emitter of the light source L1 With the detected light amounts (R S1 , G S1 , B S1 ) to (R S4 , G S4 , B S4 ) of S4 , three values in the second column of the correlation matrices E 11 to E 41 can be obtained, and the light source L1 The light emission amount B L1 of the light emitter when emitting only the B light emitter and the detected light amounts (R S1 , G S1 , B S1 ) to (R S4 , G S4 , B S4 ) of the color sensors, Correlation matrix E Three values in the third column of 11 to E 41 can be obtained.
[0040]
By substituting previously obtained correlation matrices E 11 to E 44 into the above equation (4), R, G of the light sources L 1 to L 4 for each of the total 12 detected light amounts R S1 to B S4 of the color sensors S 1 to S 4. , Correlation equations with the light emission amounts R L1 to B L4 of the B light emitters are obtained.
[0041]
By substituting a total of twelve detected light amounts R S1 to B S4 of the color sensors S1 to S4 into the total of twelve correlation equations obtained in advance, a total of twelve R, G, and B light emitters of the light sources L1 to L4 are obtained. Simultaneous equations consisting of 12 equations with the light emission amounts R L1 to B L4 as variables are obtained, and the light emission amounts (detected light emission amounts) of the R, G and B light emitters of the light sources L1 to L4 are obtained by solving these simultaneous equations. Each of R L1 to B L4 can be calculated.
[0042]
Thus, by using a total of 12 correlation equations obtained from the above equation (4), from the detected light amounts R S1 to B S4 of the color sensors S1 to S4 , the R, G, and B light emitters of the light sources L1 to L4 The light emission amount (detected light emission amount) R L1 to B L4 can be calculated.
[0043]
FIG. 3 is a flowchart showing a light source calibration procedure in the image display apparatus according to the embodiment of the present invention. The light source calibration procedure of the present embodiment will be described below with reference to FIG.
[0044]
In the correlation data memory 24, the values of the correlation matrices E 11 to E 44 of the above equation (4) are stored in advance. The values of these correlation matrices E 11 to E 44 are set using actual measured values and the like in the design stage and the production stage. In addition, the total of twelve correlation equations obtained from the equation (4) are also stored in the correlation data memory 24 as part of the calculation algorithm for the detected light emission amounts R L1 to B L4 .
[0045]
Accordingly, in the correlation data memory 24, there are a total of twelve correlation equations obtained from the equation (4), in which the values of the correlation matrices E 11 to E 44 in the equation (4) are known. Are stored in advance as correlation data. Note that the above calculation algorithm may be stored in the light source emission amount calculation unit 23.
[0046]
The light source reference light emission amount data memory 25 stores light source reference light emission amount data composed of reference light emission amounts of the respective light emitters of the respective light sources in advance. This light source reference light emission amount data is the light emission amount data of each light emitter of each light source when a screen having no color unevenness or brightness unevenness is obtained in the entire area, and is designed and produced (the light source emission in the production stage). This is set at the time of initial setting of the quantity).
[0047]
Further, the light source reference emission amount data memory 25 stores in advance an allowable range of detected emission amount data with respect to the reference emission amount data. This allowable range is set in a design stage, a production stage, or the like according to the display quality or purpose of use of the image display device, for example.
[0048]
3, at the start of light source calibration, if the light sources L1 to L4 are emitting light, the process immediately proceeds to step 1. If the light sources L1 to L4 are not emitting light, the light source control amount calculation unit 26 of the light source control unit 20 performs. The light source driving unit 21 is controlled, the light sources L1 to L4 are caused to emit light by the light source driving unit 21, and the process proceeds to step 1 after waiting until the light source is stabilized as necessary. The light source calibration can be started at an arbitrary timing by the user, and can be automatically set to be performed at a predetermined time interval or a predetermined time.
[0049]
In Step 1, the R, G, B light amounts in the area A1 are obtained by the color sensor S1, the R, G, B light amounts in the area A2 are obtained by the color sensor S2, and the R, G, B light amounts in the area A3 are obtained by the color sensor S3. Are detected respectively.
[0050]
Then, the R, G, B detected light amounts (R S1 , G S1 , B S1 ) of the color sensor S1, the R, G, B detected light amounts (R S2 , G S2 , B S2 ) of the color sensor S2 , and the color sensor S3. R, G, B detected light amounts (R S3 , G S3 , B S3 ) and R, G, B detected light amounts (R S4 , G S4 , B S4 ) of the color sensor S 4 are sent to the A / D converter 22. The A / D converter 22 converts the digital value.
[0051]
In the next step 2, the detected light amount data converted into a digital value by the A / D conversion unit 22 is sent to the light source emission amount calculation unit 23 of the light source control unit 20, and the light source emission amount calculation unit 23 uses the correlation data memory 24. The total 12 detected light quantities R S1 to B S4 are used to calculate the detected light emission amounts (R L1 , G L1 , B L1 ) of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source L1 from the total 12 detected light amounts R S1 to B S4. ), Detected light emission amounts of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source L2 (R L2 , G L2 , B L2 ), detected light amounts of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source L3 (R L3 , G L3 , and B L3). ), And the detected light emission amounts (R L4 , G L4 , B L4 ) of the R, G, and B light emitters of the light source L4.
[0052]
In the next step 3, the detected light emission amount data calculated by the light source light emission amount calculation unit 23 is sent to the light source control amount calculation unit 26, and the light source control amount calculation unit 26 detects each light emitter of each light source. A difference between the light emission amount and the reference light emission amount stored in the memory 25 is obtained, and the difference is compared with an allowable range stored in the memory 25. And when the said difference of any light-emitting body exceeds the said tolerance | permissible_range, it progresses to step 4.
[0053]
In step 4, when the detected light emission amount exceeding the allowable range is smaller than the reference light emission amount, the control amount of the light emitter is changed in a direction to increase the light emission amount of the light emitter, and the detected light emission exceeding the allowable range is detected. When the amount is larger than the reference light emission amount, the control amount of the light emitter is changed so as to reduce the light emission amount of the light emitter, and the light source control data is sent to the light source drive unit 21.
[0054]
Then, after the light source driving unit 21 re-adjusts the light emission amount of each light emitter of each light source according to the light source control data in which the control amount is changed, the above steps 1 to 3 are performed again.
[0055]
In this way, the respective light emission amounts of the respective light sources are adjusted, and if the difference between the detected light emission amount and the reference light emission amount is within the allowable range for all the light emitters of all the light sources in step 3 above, This light source calibration procedure is terminated.
[0056]
As described above, according to the embodiment of the present invention, the detected light emission of each light source from the detected light amount using the correlation equation between the detected light amounts of the plurality of color sensors and the light emission amounts of the plurality of light sources. By calculating the amount of light and adjusting the light emission amount of each light source based on these detected light emission amounts, the image quality can be improved in a non-self-luminous configuration in which images are displayed on the screen by light from a plurality of light sources. It is possible to easily calibrate the chromaticity and brightness of the screen and the color unevenness and brightness unevenness in the screen without deteriorating.
[0057]
Furthermore, since the conventional image display apparatus has one color sensor, it is necessary to install the color sensor in the center of the screen, and the color sensor must be installed at a position that hinders image display. However, in the image display device according to this embodiment, the light amounts of different areas on the screen are detected by a plurality of color sensors, respectively. Since it can be provided around the screen and the color sensor can be installed at a position that does not interfere with image display, light source calibration can be performed as needed.
[0058]
In the above embodiment, four color sensors are provided in an image display device having four light sources. However, if the number of color sensors is equal to or greater than the number of light sources, the above formula (4) is used to determine the light source. Since the detected light emission amount of the illuminant can be calculated, the number of color sensors can be the same as or more than the number of light sources.
[0059]
In the above embodiment, it is assumed that the gradation characteristic is linear. However, if the gradation characteristic is not linear due to the characteristics of the light source or the color sensor, the gradation characteristic is obtained in advance by measurement or the like. In addition, the amount of light emitted from the light source can be calculated in the same manner by incorporating it into the correlation equation (4).
[0060]
【The invention's effect】
