Apps on dual screen device

Microsoft has patented yet another design for a dual-display
device. The latest patent is about “multi-display systems”
which could be a traditional desktop, notebook or table
computers, hand-held personal digital assistants (PDAs). It
appears that the patent has nothing to do with the
long-rumoured Andromeda dual-screen device as there’s no
mention of the hinge in the patent application.

First discovered by us, the patent titled “MULTI-DISPLAY
SYSTEM” was published by
the United States Patent and Trademark Office on August 9,
2018 and it was filed by Microsoft in February 2017.

The patent basically explains the techniques that would correct
misalignment issues in a multi-display system by identifying a
misalignment between a plurality of displays in the
multi-display device.

“As computer systems have increased in power and capacity that
allow for multiple applications to run concurrently, it has
become commonplace for computer systems to include more than
one display device or monitor. Systems with multiple displays
(or “multi-display systems”), however, are not limited to
traditional desktop systems. Instead, multi-display systems can
be implemented in a variety of systems, including notebook or
table computers, hand-held personal digital assistants (PDAs),
multiscreen television systems, etc. Even further, many
multi-display systems are implemented without being connected
to a computer system,” Microsoft writes in the background
section of the patent.

“Techniques of the present disclosure correct misalignment in a
multi-display system by identifying the misalignment between a
plurality of displays and determining a line start position of
at least one of the plurality of displays to correct the
misalignment. Accordingly, the techniques may include adjusting
the line start position by transmitting a first line start
signal at a modified line start position determined to correct
the misalignment between a plurality of displays,” the company
explains the patent application.
