A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11929049B2) discloses an output content generation device that includes a processor configured to execute a method for determining the size of multiple pieces of information to be displayed on a singular display screen. The device automatically assesses whether the information fits within the display region and allocates areas for displaying the content across multiple screens if needed. Additionally, the device generates content to be displayed sequentially on the screens based on the size and placement of the information.

Furthermore, the patent details a method executed by the processor to determine the display time period for each screen based on the content of the information. This includes considering factors such as the number of characters in the information allocated to each screen and the difficulty level associated with the content displayed. The patent also highlights the exclusion of information commonly allocated across screens from the determination of the display time period. Overall, the patent aims to optimize the display of information on non-interactive digital signage by efficiently distributing and displaying content across multiple screens on a singular display device.
