Title
(EN) USING SCREEN CAPTURES TO PROVIDE AUTOMATIC CONTEXTUAL SMART INPUT-IN DEVICE SELECTION MENU
(FR) UTILISATION DE CAPTURES D'ÉCRAN POUR FOURNIR UN MENU DE SÉLECTION DE DISPOSITIF D'ENTRÉE INTELLIGENT CONTEXTUEL AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A two-way smart input-in device recognition mechanism determines which input slots of a multi-input display device (such as a television) are actually occupied, and obtains a screen capture of a graphic image for each such device. An embodiment of the present invention automatically associates the screen capture graphics with input-in device locations to enable presenting an intelligent visual input-in selection menu, which may be rendered in response to activation of a Menu button of a remote control device. Preferably, the input-in selection menu only displays graphics for currently-occupied input-in slots.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, un mécanisme de reconnaissance de dispositif d'entrée intelligent bidirectionnel détermine quelles fentes d'entrée d'un dispositif d'affichage à entrées multiples (tel qu'un téléviseur) sont réellement occupées, et obtient une capture d'écran d'une image graphique pour chaque dispositif de la sorte. Un mode de réalisation de la présente invention associe automatiquement les graphiques de capture d'écran à des emplacements de dispositif d'entrée, afin de permettre la présentation d'un menu de sélection d'entrée visuel intelligent qui peut être rendu en réponse à l'activation d'un bouton de menu d'un dispositif de télécommande. De préférence, le menu de sélection d'entrée affiche seulement des graphiques pour des fentes d'entrée actuellement occupées.
