Title: IMAGING CONTROLLER, IMAGING DEVICE, AND IMAGING CONTROL METHOD
Abstract:
The present invention reduces the power consumption of an imaging device that outputs an image signal in a portion of an imaging area. An imaging controller provided with an area of interest detection unit and an image signal control unit. The area of interest detection unit detects, from an image signal outputted from an imaging element, an area of interest included in the image signal that is watched by a specific organism. The image signal control unit controls output of the image signal in the detected area of interest from the imaging element and exercises control, differently from the area of interest, on the image signal in other non-interest areas than the area of interest.
