Title: ACTUAL SIZE IMAGE DISPLAY
Abstract:
A video camera (10) captures image data and determines parameters indicative of a size of an image. Such data may, for example, be recorded on a recording medium (18) or may be broadcasted. A video apparatus reproduces the recorded data from the recording medium (18) or may receive the broadcasted data. Information indicative of a size of a display screen (26) of a display unit (22) is provided to the video apparatus, which then produces an actual size signal representative of an actual size of a desired object of the image in accordance with the screen size information and the image size data and may supply the same to the display unit (22) so as to enable the desired object of the image or a portion thereof to be displayed on the display screen in actual size.
