DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Referring to the following description and drawings, these and other aspects of the embodiments of the present disclosure will be apparent. In the description and drawings, some specific approaches of the embodiments of the present disclosure are provided, so as to show ways to perform the principle of the embodiments of the present disclosure. However, it should be understood that the present disclosure is not limited thereby. Instead, the embodiments of the present disclosure include all the variants, modifications, and their equivalents within the spirit and scope of the present disclosure as defined by the claims.

Blue light is a visible light, and is also the blue channel in the RGB color gamut. Therefore, adjusting the blue light of a liquid crystal display (LCD) can affect the visual experience of a viewer. In contrast, ultraviolet radiation is an invisible light, and can be completely removed without affecting the display effect. According to the present disclosure, the structure of the liquid crystal display is improved to reduce intensities of the ultraviolet radiation and the blue light, thus protecting the viewer's eyes.

A typical LCD structure includes a backlight source in a bottom layer, and a liquid crystal layer sandwiched between two polarizer layers. Liquid crystal molecules in the liquid crystal layer are controlled by applied voltages to rotate between 0 degrees and 90 degrees, thus realizing different light transmission.

Since the ultraviolet radiation has no influence on the display effect, an ultraviolet optical filter can be directly added in the structure of the LCD, to filter out the ultraviolet radiation.

FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of a pixel 10 in a liquid crystal display according to an exemplary embodiment. As shown in FIG. 1, the pixel 10 includes a lower polarizer 12, a liquid crystal layer 13, and an upper polarizer 14, all of which are arranged over a backlight source 11. The liquid crystal layer 13 is located between the lower polarizer 12 and the upper polarizer 14. The pixel 10 further includes an optical filter 15 located between the liquid crystal layer 13 and the lower polarizer 12. The optical filter 15 is configured to filter out the ultraviolet radiation, the blue component of light for the pixel 10, also referred to as the blue component of the pixel 10, or both the ultraviolet radiation and the blue component of the pixel 10.

Thus, according to the present disclosure, the ultraviolet radiation and/or the blue component of the pixel 10 can be weakened by using the optical filter 15.

As described above, the optical filter 15 is added to the pixel 10. Therefore, the thickness of the liquid crystal display containing a plurality of the pixel 10 is increased. In some embodiments, by modifying the manufacturing process, the optical filter 15 can be integrated into the lower polarizer 12, i.e., the lower polarizer 12 can be configured to realize both the polarizing function and the filtering function.

According to the present disclosure, the blue component of the pixel 10 can also be reduced via color conversion, such as a color adjustment via software.

The exemplary methods and devices described below are directed to one pixel. However, methods and devices consistent with the present disclosure can be applied to process any or all of the pixels in a liquid crystal display.

FIG. 2 is a flow chart of a color adjustment method according to an exemplary embodiment. The color adjustment method shown in FIG. 2 can be used in a terminal. As shown in FIG. 2, at S21, a current color gamut mode of a pixel of an liquid crystal display is obtained. At S22, the current color gamut mode of the pixel is converted to a preset color gamut mode, so as to obtain a blue component of the pixel in the preset color gamut mode. At S23, a weakening adjustment is performed on the blue component of the pixel in the preset color gamut mode.

For example, in an image rendering process, a color gamut of a pixel needs to be converted from a linear Red Green Blue (RGB) color gamut mode to a standard RGB (sRGB) color gamut mode. A non-linear (GAMMA) correction can be performed on each color channel in the linear RGB color gamut mode, and the corrected blue component can then be weakened.

According to the present disclosure, the blue light can be weakened by the above color adjustment method. In addition, the function of adjusting screen colors can be turned on or off by the user as needed, to enhance the flexibility and convenience of use.

In some embodiments, converting the current color gamut mode to the preset color gamut mode (S22 in FIG. 2) includes performing a non-linear correction on the blue component of the pixel according to preset formulas described below, to obtain the blue component of the pixel in the preset color gamut mode. The preset formulas include:

if ClB is greater than a first preset value, CsB=(1+a)·ClB1/x; and

if ClB is less than or equal to the first preset value, CsB=b·ClB;

where, ClB is the normalized intensity of the blue component of the pixel in the current color gamut mode, 0≤ClB≤1; CsB is the normalized intensity of the blue component of the pixel in the preset color gamut mode, 0≤CsB≤1; a is a first preset non-linear correction weight, b is a second preset non-linear correction weight; and x is a first gamma value of the non-linear correction. In some embodiments, when the calculation using the above formulae results in a CsB value larger than 1, i.e., the calculated CsB value exceeds the above range of CsB, the value of CsB can be set to 1.

For example, a range of the blue component in the linear RGB color gamut mode is [0, 1]. Assuming the first preset value is 0.00304, a=0.055, and b=12.92, a GAMMA 2.2 correction, i.e., x=2.2, is performed on the blue component of the pixel in the linear RGB color gamut mode as follows:

if ClB>0.00304, CsB=(1+0.055). ClB1/2.2; and

if ClB≤0.00304, CsB=12.92·ClB;

where the range of CsB after the GAMMA 2.2 correction is [0, 1].

In some embodiments, weakening the blue component, i.e., S23 in FIG. 2, includes, adjusting the first preset non-linear correction weight a to about zero. For example, when the user turns on an eye protection mode, a special treatment is performed on the blue channel, and the first preset non-linear correction weight a is set to about zero (a≈0). As a result, the blue component is weakened, i.e., the blue component in the preset color gamut mode under the eye protection mode is smaller than the blue component in the preset color gamut mode without the eye protection mode, and thus the blue light is weakened.

In some embodiments, the color adjustment method further includes performing a non-linear correction on the red component and the green component of the pixel, respectively, in the current color gamut mode according to preset formulas described below, so as to obtain the red component and the green component of the pixel in the preset color gamut mode. The preset formulas for correcting the red or green component include:

if ClRG is greater than the first preset value, CsRG=(1+a′)·ClRG1/y; and

if ClRG is less than or equal to the first preset value, CsRG=b′·ClRG;

where, ClRG is the normalized intensity of the red component or green component of the pixel in the current color gamut mode, 0≤ClRG≤1; CsRG is the normalized intensity of the red component or green component of the pixel in the preset color gamut mode, 0≤CsRG≤1; a′ is a third preset non-linear correction weight, b′ is a fourth preset non-linear correction weight; y is a second gamma value of the non-linear correction, and y<x.

For example, the GAMMA 2.2 correction can be performed on the red component and the green component only, and a GAMMA 2.4 correction or a GAMMA 2.6 correction is separately performed on the blue component. FIG. 3 shows the GAMMA correction curves when different GAMMA corrections are applied according to an exemplary embodiment. In FIG. 3, the x axis represents the normalized intensity of a color component in the current color gamut mode and y axis represents the normalized intensity of the color component in the preset color gamut mode. As shown in FIG. 3, by performing different GAMMA corrections on the red component, the green component, and the blue component, the blue light can be weakened.

In examples discussed above, the blue light is reduced by weakening the B color channel in the RGB color coordinate. In the RGB color coordinate, the color of the pixel is formed by mixing three primary colors R (Red), G (Green), and B (Blue) in various proportions. Alternatively, color mixing can be realized by using different primary colors such as C (Cyan), M (Magenta), and Y (Yellow). In the CMY color coordinate, no blue color is used. Therefore, damage to the viewer's eyes by the blue light can be avoided.

FIG. 4 is a flow chart of a color adjustment method according to another exemplary embodiment. As shown in FIG. 4, at S41, mapping parameters for primary colors of a pixel of a liquid crystal display are obtained. At S42, current primary colors of the pixel are mapped to new primary colors according to the mapping parameters. At S43, an image is displayed on a screen according to the new primary colors.

For example, the primary colors of the pixel can be mapped according to the following formula:

[YMC]=[0.50.500.500.500.50.5]*[RGB].

Therefore, the blue light is reduced by performing the adjustment on the primary colors of the pixel.

The preset formulas are as described above and include:

if CsB is greater than the first preset value, CsB=+a)·ClB1/x; and

The preset formulas for correcting the red or green component are as described above and include:

if CsRG is greater than the first preset value, CsRG=(1+a′)·ClRG1/y; and
