Application: Image processing circuit and method having output timing adjustment mechanism (Patent ID: US20240070824A1)

The patent filed by Realtek Semiconductor Corp. discloses an image processing circuit with an output timing adjustment mechanism. This circuit includes an image enhancement circuit that enhances input images, two image processing paths for processing the enhanced images with different timings, a timing control circuit to adjust the timing of the enhanced images based on processing requirements, and output interfaces for the processed images. The timing control circuit can modify various synchronization signals and data intervals to adjust the original timing of the enhanced images, allowing for different processing requirements to be met efficiently.

Additionally, the image processing method described in the patent involves receiving input images, enhancing them, adjusting the timing of the enhanced images based on processing requirements, processing the images to generate outputs, and then outputting these processed images. The method includes steps for image enhancement, adjusting timing, and processing based on specific requirements such as instant playback or recording. It also involves utilizing resolution adjusting circuits, frame refresh rate adjusting circuits, and frame buffer circuits within the image processing paths to ensure efficient processing and output of images with different timings and requirements.
