Application: Information processing device, content display system, and content display method (Patent ID: US20230418538A1)

The patent filed by Sharp Corp. describes an information processing device that receives images capturing different shooting ranges and assigns content to corresponding display regions based on the detection of persons within those ranges. Specifically, when multiple persons are detected in one range and none in the other, the device assigns content to each display region based on the detected persons. The method involves selecting specific persons based on conditions such as face size or distance from boundaries between shooting ranges to determine content assignment.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for displaying content on multiple display devices based on the presence of individuals in different regions. When multiple persons are detected in one region and none in the other, specific content is displayed on each device based on selected conditions. The method also includes scenarios where default content is replaced by content corresponding to detected persons, ensuring dynamic and personalized content display based on the individuals present in the respective regions.
