[0001] The present invention relates to a display apparatus and a control method thereof,

The present invention relates to a display device, and more particularly, to a display device and a control method thereof that can realize an appropriate luminance in consideration of a brightness level of an input image data and a brightness of an ambient illuminance.

In general, since the maximum brightness that can be expressed for each image display device is determined, the contrast ratio to be displayed is also determined. Therefore, in the current image display device, various techniques are used to adjust the brightness information of the screen to improve the hue contrast, but for practical reasons, the effect is not significant.

A typical method is to adjust the brightness of the screen using the average value of the video signal. In this method, the maximum brightness of the screen is controlled by an APL (Auto Peak Limit) circuit using the average brightness of the screen.

As shown in FIG. 1, the APL control method is briefly described. In the entire image, the average brightness level is high, so that the maximum brightness is controlled to be dark. When the brightness of the whole image is dark, So that the average brightness of the image is kept constant.

Also, in recent years, a method of adjusting the brightness of the screen according to the surrounding brightness level of the display device has also been provided.

That is, as shown in FIG. 2, the ambient brightness of the display device is measured and the brightness of the screen of the display screen is adjusted according to the measured ambient brightness. At this time, if the measured ambient brightness level is relatively high, And when the measured ambient brightness level is relatively low, the brightness of the display screen is lowered, thereby relieving fatigue of the eyes.

In the embodiment of the present invention, the brightness level that can alleviate the fatigue of the eyes of the viewer can be automatically set according to the illuminance of the surroundings and the level of the input data provided on the display device.

Although the term used in the present invention is a general term that is widely used at present, there are some terms selected arbitrarily by the applicant in a specific case. In this case, since the meaning is described in detail in the description of the corresponding invention, It is to be understood that the present invention should be grasped as a meaning of a non-term.

That is, in the following description, the word 'comprising' does not exclude the presence of other elements or steps than those listed.

FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating a configuration of a display device according to an embodiment of the present invention.

3, a display device according to an embodiment of the present invention includes a memory unit 100, an illumination sensing unit 101, a video data receiving unit 102, an average luminance level detection unit 103, and a control unit 104 .

The memory unit 100 stores programs related to the operation of the display apparatus and various data generated during operation of the display apparatus.

In addition, the memory unit 100 stores the equation for each illuminance group obtained corresponding to the product model information of the display device.

The above equation is obtained on the basis of the display device luminance level according to the illumination sensing state for reducing the UGR (Unified Glare Rating) value to less than a specific level.

Also, the equation is a linear equation consisting of a first variable indicating an average luminance level, a and a, b being coefficients of the first variable, and a solution obtained through the linear equation (second variable) And is set to a register value for adjusting the level.

The first equation may include first coordinate information including a register value and a minimum average luminance level value corresponding to a maximum average luminance level belonging to the same group from the display apparatus luminance level according to the illumination sensing state, And the second coordinate information made up of the maximum average brightness level value.

The process of obtaining the above equation will be described in detail below.

The memory may be implemented as a nonvolatile memory capable of updating and erasing data, for example, an EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory) and / or an EDID ROM (Extended Display Identification Data ROM) And is connected to the control unit 104.

The illuminance sensing unit 101 senses the illuminance of the surroundings where the display device is installed. That is, the illuminance sensing unit 101 includes a photosensor to convert an external light signal into an electrical signal, and measures the electrical signal to sense an external illuminance.

The video data receiving unit 102 receives video data input from the outside and outputs the video data. Here, the video signal source for providing the video signal may be a PC (not shown), and the video data receiving unit 102 may be a D-sub connection interface connected to the video signal source. Here, the input video signal includes R, G, B video signals and H / V synchronization signals.

In addition, the image data receiving unit 102 may be implemented as a tuner, a set-top box, an HDMI interface, and a wireless communication module.

The average luminance level detector 103 measures the average pixel level (APL) of the image data input through the image data receiver 102.

That is, the video signal input through the video data receiving unit 102 is output to the average brightness level detector 103. Then, the average brightness level detector 103 measures the APL corresponding to each frame of the input image data. Then, the measured APL is transmitted to the control unit 104.

Here, the APL corresponds to one of the image characteristic quantities for the image data, and the brightness level control of the display device according to the measured APL is performed based on the equation.

The control unit 104 extracts an equation corresponding to the sensed illumination sensing state from the illumination unit 101 from the memory unit 100. A register value for controlling the brightness level of the display device is set by substituting the APL value detected through the average brightness level detector 103 into the extracted equation.

Hereinafter, the process of obtaining the above equation and the operation of the control unit 104 will be described in more detail.

Generally, architectural academy uses UGR (Unified Glare Rating) system to grasp the degree of discomfort.

The UGR system generally represents an offensive discharge value of between 10 and 30. At this time, as the UGR value decreases, the unpleasantity luminance decreases. As the UGR value increases, the unpleasant luminance increases.

In addition, the UGR may be integrated with all the light sources, or may be evaluated by a point light source.

The basic formula of the UGR is as follows.

Figure 112009003926980-pat00001

The UGR value obtained through Equation (1) is evaluated by a Glare Criteria. The performance criteria are as follows.

Mean Response UGR Just Imperceptible 10 Perceprible 16 Acceptable (Just Acceptible) 19 Inacceptible 22 Just Uncomfortable 25 Uncomfortable 28 Just intolerable 31

That is, when the UGR value exceeds 10, it may not only cause inconvenience to viewers but also cause eye fatigue.

Therefore, in the present invention, the brightness level of the display device according to the ambient illuminance is set using the UGR value between 9 and 10 as a target.

In order to do this, it is first necessary to overlook how the UGR value changes in accordance with the illuminance of the surroundings where the display device is installed.

If the variation of the UGR value according to the ambient illuminance is overlooked, the brightness level of the display device having the UGR value between 9 and 10 is obtained according to the ambient illuminance.

That is, as shown in Table 2, when the ambient illuminance is 640, the luminance value of the display device should be 276 in order to set the UGR value to 10.27.

w = emission area / (distance * distance)

Figure 112010010789820-pat00002

Equation (3) is the position index of Guth, and the definition of the variable is as follows.
p: position index of Guth
d: R / H
s: T / H
R, H, T: see Figure 4

In this case, in order to obtain the UGR value using Equation (1), w and p values should be calculated using Equation (2) and Equation (3).

The w value may vary depending on the model of the display device. That is, since the w value varies according to the inch information of the display device, the equation needs to be calculated differently according to the model information of the display device. Hereinafter, a model of 22 inches will be described as an example.

When the display device is 22 inches, the lateral length is 43 cm and the vertical length is 27 cm, so that the light emitting area is (0.43 * 0.27) m 2 . In addition, since the viewing distance of the user is generally about 60 cm, the w value is obtained by using it. However, it should be apparent to those skilled in the art that the present invention is not limited thereto and that the brightness level of the display device can be adjusted by applying different equations according to the viewing distance of the user.

Accordingly, when the display device is 22 inches, the w value becomes 0.3225.

When the p value is obtained using Equation (3), H, T and R values as shown in FIG. 4 should first be obtained.

However, since the center of the light emitting area of the display device is generally horizontal with respect to the observer under normal viewing conditions, the H and T values become zero. Accordingly, as shown in FIG. 5, when the H value and the T value are 0, the T / R and H / R values become 0, so that the p value becomes 1. [

When the w value, the p value, and the illuminance level (L b ) obtained in this manner are substituted into the equation (1), and the UGR value serving as the target is substituted into the left term, the Ls value of the display device luminance level corresponding thereto can be obtained .

In the embodiment of the present invention, a certain number of illumination levels may be grouped into one group, and a brightness level of the display device to be applied to each group may be set to Obtain the equation for setting.

That is, if the illuminance levels from 560 to 510 are grouped into one group, the luminance level of the applied display device is within the range of 244 to 224.

In other words, if the currently sensed ambient illuminance falls within the range of 560 to 510, the luminance level of the display device is changed only within the range of 224 to 244.

At this time, since the luminance level of the display device can not be changed at random in the luminance level variable range of the display device, the luminance level of the display device is varied in inverse proportion to the APL value of the input image data.

At this time, in order to vary the brightness level of the display device in inverse proportion to the APL value, an equation for setting the display device brightness level corresponding to the APL value should be obtained.

On the other hand, since the brightness level of the display device substantially checks the brightness level emitted from the outside of the display device, it can not be a practical application data value.

Therefore, a register value corresponding to the display device luminance level must exist.

The relation between the display device luminance level and the register value is as follows.

Register Luminance 255 244 254 244 253 242 252 240 251 238 250 236 249 234 248 232 247 230 246 228 245 226 244 224 243 222

As shown in Table 3, in order for the display device to set the luminance level to 244, the register value should be set to 255 or 254. Here, the register value is included in the range of 0 to 255. If the register value is set to 245, the backlight current value corresponding to the brightness level of the display device is provided to be 226.

Therefore, the above equation is an equation for obtaining a register value, which includes a variable for an average level of input image data.

Hereinafter, a method for obtaining the above equation will be described in detail.

As shown in Table 2, after the display device luminance level to be applied is obtained according to the illumination level, a certain range of illumination levels is grouped into one group.

For example, the illuminance levels in the range of 560 to 510 are grouped into one group, and the illuminance levels in the range of 500 to 440 are grouped into one group.

If a certain range of illumination levels is grouped into one group, the corresponding equation is obtained for each group. Hereinafter, the first group of illuminance levels in the range of 560 to 510 will be described.

In the case of the first group, the display device luminance level that can be represented is within the range of 224 to 244. In other words, if the current illumination level is 550, the display device luminance level should be varied within the range of 224 to 244.

At this time, in the embodiment of the present invention, the luminance level of the display device is varied in inverse proportion to the APL of the input image data.

On the other hand, in general, a method of obtaining an equation can be obtained by knowing two or more coordinate values. Therefore, in order to obtain an equation corresponding to the first group, two coordinate values must be obtained.

In order to obtain the coordinate value, a register value corresponding to a maximum value of a display device luminance level belonging to the first group, a register value corresponding to a minimum value, and a maximum APL and a minimum APL of input image data should be known.

In this case, the APL of the input image data is expressed in the range of 0 to 255 in general. However, since the level representation is meaningless within the range of 0 to 60 and 230 to 255, the display device luminance level is adjusted only within the range of 61 to 229.

Accordingly, the maximum value of the display device luminance level is 244 and the minimum value thereof is 224, so that the register value corresponding to the maximum value of the display device luminance level is 255, and the register value corresponding to the minimum value is 244. Also, the maximum APL is 230 and the minimum APL is 60.

6, since the y-axis is the register value and the x-axis is the APL value, and the relationship between the two values is in inverse proportion, the one coordinate value becomes (60, 255) The value becomes (230, 244).

y = ax + b

Since the general linear equation is as shown in Equation (4), the obtained two coordinate values are respectively substituted into Equation (4), and the a value and the b value are calculated accordingly.

In this way, the equation for the first group is y = (- 11/170) x + 258.88 as shown in FIG.

 Likewise, equations for different groups can be obtained, respectively. For example, when the coordinate values are (60, 149), (230, 125) as shown in FIG. 7, an equation such as y = (- 11/170) x + 123.88 is obtained.
