Title
(EN) DIRECT VIEW INTERACTIVE PHOTO KIOSK AND IMAGE FORMING PROCESS FOR SAME
(FR) KIOSQUE PHOTOGRAPHIQUE INTERACTIF A VISION DIRECTE ET PROCEDE D'IMAGERIE ASSOCIE
Abstract
(EN)
An interactive photo kiosk in which, in one embodiment thereof, presents an upright open face which enables a user to stand directly in front of the kiosk, which optically defocuses the background image and substitutes a selected computer generated image, and which enables the user to pose and freeze a selected image made visible to the user on a display screen (S20, S21). Users may choose from among a menu of different computer generated foreground images. In a preferred embodiment, the selected frozen image is in digital form and is processed electronically to form a single digital multiple image of the same image in a selected area format which when delivered to a printing apparatus (S22, S23) for hard copy print-out, produces a multiple image of the same frozen image on a single sheet wherein each of the multiple images can be peeled off the single sheet and used separately from each other (S24, S25).
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un kiosque photographique interactif qui, selon une de ses réalisations, présente une face ouverte droite permettant à un utilisateur de se tenir debout, directement face au kiosque. Ce kiosque défocalise optiquement l'image d'arrière-plan et y substitue une image de synthèse sélectionnée, et il permet à l'utilisateur d'arrêter et de figer une image sélectionnée affichée sur un écran de visualisation (S20, S21). Les utilisateurs peuvent choisir parmi une sélection de diverses images de premier plan produites par ordinateur. Selon une réalisation préférée, l'image sélectionnée et figée est une image numérique qui subit un traitement électronique de façon à produire une image numérique unique comportant de multiples vues de la même image suivant un format surfacique sélectionné, ladite image unique produisant, lorsqu'elle est transmise à un dispositif d'impression (S22, S23) de recopie d'écran, une image multiple de la même image figée sur un seul feuillet, chacune des multiples images du feuillet pouvant être détachée séparément et utilisée indépendamment des autres (S24, S25).
