Abstract

See full text

A method for processing digital images and displaying them on a television receiver is provided. Initially, an image processing device receives digital image data from a digital camera or other digital device. Next, the digital image is stored on a storage device associated with the image processing device. This digital image on the storage device is converted into television signals and supplied to a television receiver where it can be displayed. Another aspect of the present invention provides an apparatus for processing these images. This apparatus includes a first input terminal capable of receiving digital image data, a second input terminal capable of receiving commands from a user, an output terminal capable of supplying digital image data to a television receiver external to the apparatus, a storage device associated with the apparatus capable of storing the digital image data, and a processor capable of executing instructions in response to commands received over the second input terminal that store the received digital image in the storage device, converts the digital images into television signals, and transmit the television signals to the television receiver for display thereon.
