Title (EN) MEMORYLESS ELECTRONIC CAMERA WITH DIRECT HARD COPY OUTPUT
(FR) APPAREIL PHOTOGRAPHIQUE ELECTRONIQUE SANS MEMOIRE A SORTIE DIRECTE SUR SUPPORT PAPIER
Abstract:
(EN) A compact photo-imaging and print-out device is configured in th form of a quasi toy camera capable of being operated by a child and is exclusive of image storage memory and any attendant supervisory microprocessor. Instead, the electronic response of an image capture ccd array is coupled directly to a print-out unit, either 'as is' or via a selectively inserted gradient circuit. In the former instance, a captured image is printed out by the printer in accordance with its grey scale content; in the latter instance, the printer will generate an outline or line drawing of the captured image based upon prescribed differences in contrast of the captured image.
(FR) Un dispositif compact de photo-imagerie et d'impression se présente sous la forme d'un appareil photographique ressemblant quasiment à un jouet et pouvant être utilisé par un enfant, ledit dispositif étant dépourvu de mémoire de stockage d'image et de tout microprocesseur de contrôle attenant. A la place, la réponse électronique d'un réseau CCD de prise d'images est couplée directement à une unité d'impression, soit 'en l'état' soit par l'intermédiaire d'un circuit à gradient intercalé sélectivement. Dans le premier exemple, l'image prise est imprimée par l'imprimante conformément à sa teneur en demi-teintes; dans le deuxième exemple, l'imprimante va générer un contour ou un tracé linéaire de l'image prise, sur la base des différences prescrites de contraste de l'image prise.
