5. EXAMPLES of carrying out the INVENTION

<> In order to fully understand the invention, will be described below are preferred examples of its implementation with reference to the accompanying drawings.

The optical disk of high density recording, for example, sialoceles (Blu-ray) disc read-only (BD-ROM), sialoceles Blu-ray rewritable drive (BD-RE) and the like, in accordance with the invention may have a structure of files or data to control the playback of video and audio data, depicted in figure 1. Some aspects of the data structure of the present invention, is shown in figure 1, similar to the well-known standard BD-RE, so the description of these aspects will not be given in too great detail.

As shown in figure 1, the root directory contains at least one catalog BD. Catalog BD includes the common files (not shown), the PLAYLIST directory, which stores the playlist files (e.g., *.mpls), a CLIPINF directory, which stores the information files clips (*.clpi), and the directory STREAM, which stores files clips, audio/video in MPEG2 format (*.m2ts), corresponding to files of information about clips.

The directory STREAM includes an audio/video stream in the MPEG2 format, called clips or files clips. Audio/video stream contains the source packages audio and video data. For example, the source video package contains the header and a transport packet. Source package which engages a number of the original package, which is usually a sequentially assigned number that serves as the address to access to the original package. Transport packets contain a packet identifier (PID). The packet identifier (PID) identifies the sequence of transport packets that owns the transport package. All transport packets of the same sequence have the same packet identifier (PID).

The CLIPINF directory contains an information file of a clip associated with each audio file/stream. In the information file of the clip, among other things, specifies the type of the associated audio/video stream, the sequence information, software information and information synchronization. Information about the sequence describes the sequence for the main time entry (ATS) and the main system time (STC). For example, the sequence information indicates, among other things, the number of sequences, information about the time of the beginning and end of each sequence, the address of the first source packet in each sequence and the packet identifier (PID) of the transport packets in each sequence. The sequence of source packets in which the content of the program constantly, is a software sequence. Software information specifies, among other things, the number of the program is mnih sequences the starting address for each program sequence and identifier(s) of package (PID(s)) for the transport of packages in the software sequence.

The synchronization information is called information about the characteristic point (CPI). One of the forms of information about the characteristic point (CPI) is the map entry point (EP). Map entry point (EP) corresponds to the source address of the packet (i.e. the number of the original package) and time representation (for example, the basic time entry (PBX) and/or main system time (STC)). Timestamp representation (PTS) and the number of the original packet (SPN) refer to the entry point of the audio/video stream, namely the timestamp representation (PTS) and the related number of the original packet (SPN) indicate the entry point in the audio/video stream. Specified so the service is often called a service entry point.

The PLAYLIST directory includes one or more playlist files. The concept of the playlist was introduced to facilitate editing/mounting clips for playback. The playlist file is a collection of intervals playback clips. Each interval playback is called the element of play (playitem). In the playlist file, among other things, specifies each of the elements in the works forming a playlist, and every element of play, among other things, is a pair of entry points (IN-point and OUT-point)indicating the position on the time axis of the clip (for example, the timestamp of the view, based on the basic time entry (PBX) or primary system time (STC)). In other words, the playlist file identifies the playback controls, each of which specifies a clip or part of it, and identifies the information file clip associated with the clip. The information file clip, among other things, sets the playback controls in compliance with the clip in the source packages.

Files General information (not shown) provide General information to control playback of audio/video streams recorded on the optical disk.

In addition to the illustration of the data structure of the recording medium according to the exemplary embodiment of the present invention figure 1 shows the region of the recording medium. For example, files shared information recorded in one or more areas of General information, directory, playlist recorded in one or more areas of the directories, playlists, each playlist directory playlist recorded in one or more areas of the playlist on the recording medium, etc. In figure 2 and OBrien an example of a recording medium with a data structure of figure 1, stored on it. As shown, the recording medium contains the information about the file system, the database area and the area of audio/video stream. Area database contains information area of shared files and information the playlist area, and the area information about the clips. A region of a file of General information and the area information about playlists contains files shared data stored in the corresponding data area shared files, and the PLAYLIST directory and playlist files recorded in the relevant field information about the playlist. Information about the clips have a CLIPINF directory, and recorded in the appropriate files information about clips. Region audio/video stream contains audio/video streams for different sections of the record.

Video and audio data are usually organized in separate sections, for example, various films, presents video and audio data are organized in different sections. Moreover, the partition may be arranged in separate chapters almost as much as the book often divided into chapters.

Because of the large storage capacity of the newest media with high recording density, such as optical discs: sialoceles disk read-only (BD-ROM) and sialoceles rewritable the claim (BD-RE), can be recorded and, consequently, play with the recording media of different topics, different versions of the section or part of section. For example, one media you can record video data, corresponding to different angles of the camera's location. As another example, the media can be recorded versions of partition or its part, corresponding to different languages. As another example, the recording medium can record the uncut version and theatrical version of the section. Or on the recording medium can record the version of the section or parts of a section for adults, adolescents and children (i.e. different versions of control by parents). Each version, the angle of the camera, etc. correspond to the individual channel playback, and such video called video multi channel playback.

Because of the large storage capacity of the newest media of high density recording, such as sinologiya optical disks, read-only (BD-ROM), a static image can be recorded and reproduced in an organized manner and/or under interactive control of the user, for example, in the form of slide shows. Below will be described a data structure for managing reproduction of still images to an optical disc of high density recording in accordance with the tvii with embodiments of the present invention, as well as methods and devices for recording and playing back still images in accordance with embodiments of the present invention.

Figure 3 illustrates the method of controlling a static image for an optical disk with a high recording density in accordance with one example implementation of the present invention. In this example a set of images recorded on sialoceles disk read-only (BD-ROM) file is a static image, multiple images contained in the file static images associated with a specific navigation information of the playlist that contains navigation information for managing reproduction of still images. Some navigation information corresponding to the static image is related with certain video film contained in the audio/video clip that stores video and audio data of the movie.

As shown in Figure 3, with one position of the record may be due to a variety of static images. Many images can be displayed in various ways, for example, sequentially, randomly /rearrangement or slide show in auto/manual mode. Various display options are under obree described below.

Figure 4 shows the method of controlling a static image for an optical disc of high density recording in accordance with another embodiment of the present invention. This embodiment coincides with the example depicted in Figure 3, except that the audio/video clip contains only audio data. In this scenario, when you run the audio playback device optical drive identifies a static image associated with certain positions of recording audio data, and performs a playback operation of a static image in which the detected static image display together with audio data.

In accordance with example implementations of the present invention the movie data (e.g. video or video and audio) and a static image or audio data and images can be provided to the user through, for example, a TV connected to the playback device for optical disks, similar to that discussed below. Now will be described in detail ways of managing navigation information to associate images with film or audio data.

On Figa shows one way to control static images in accordance with one example is sushestvennee of the present invention. In this example, the static images to determine one or more tags playlists. As shown in Figa, a static image or group of images associated with the playlist by tag playlist, called the label of the static image. Thus, static images can be managed as a slide show, which is described in more detail below. Tags playlists described in more detail below, in accordance with 6-7.

Figure 6 shows one example implementation in accordance with the present invention, the navigation information for static images provided by associated labels playlists. Each playlist file contains the information field labels playlist called 'PlayLists Mark'. As shown in Fig.6, in the information field 'PlayLists Mark' label playlist is specified, the length of the information field and the number of labels playlist 'number_of_PlayList_marks' in the playlist. If sineokogo rewritable drive (BD-RE) field 'length) contains the value '26 bytes' (26 bytes). If sineokogo disk read-only (BD-ROM) in accordance with the invention, the length field may have a value greater than 26 bytes. For each of medispec playback in the information field 'PlayLists Mark' label playlist specified label type 'mark_type', timestamp label 'mark_time_stamp', duration 'duration', information Creator 'makers_information' and the name of the Creator 'maker_name'.

The label type identifies the type of the label. For example, when the label indicates the beginning of the Chapter, the label type 'mark_type' refers to the appropriate label as the label of the head. As further shown in Fig.6, if the label refers to the static image, then the index number 'ref_to_still_image_index' of the relevant static image or images recorded(s) on inelusion disk read-only (BD-ROM).

Timestamp label 'mark_time_stamp' indicates the point where the label is and it indicates the point on the time axis of the audio/video clips (for example, on the basis of the basic time entry (PBX) and/or main system time (STC)), where is the label. Duration 'duration' indicates the length of the label, starting with a timestamp label, labelled as 'mark_time_stamp'. If the label is the label of the static image, the duration 'duration' may specify the duration of the display of a static image.

Information Creator 'maker_information' provides information that is provided by the Creator, a 'maker_name' specifies the name of the Creator.

As you can see from the description Fig.6, when the label represents the label of the static image, information associated with m is rigid static image, provides navigation information for reproducing a static image associated with the label of the static image.

On Figa depicts another example implementation of the navigation information for static images provided by associated labels playlists. As shown, this embodiment coincides with the example shown in Fig.6, except that if the label is the label of the static image (for example, label type=0×10), in connection with the mark static image is available for more information regarding play a static image or a static image. In particular, provided the following field indicators: indicator number of images associated with the label static image 'number_of_still_images', synchronisation indicator display 'display_timing_mode', the indicator display order 'display_order_mode', the impact indicator to display 'display_effect_mode' and indicator time interval effect display 'display_effect_period'.

If the field 'display_timing_mode' is '0', it means an automatic slide show. If the field 'display_timing_mode' is '1', it means the mode of viewing static images or a slide show, which displays static depicted is I based on user input from the keyboard. If the field 'display_order_mode' is '0', this means the sequential display of static images, which consistently produce the display of static images. If the field 'display_order_mode' is '1', it indicates the operation random display of static images, which produce display images in random order.

Field 'display_effect_mode' indicates an impact that should be done on a static image, for example, cutting/clipping or smooth introduction/removal of the image. Field 'display_effect_period' specifies the duration of the respective impact on the display. Field 'display_timing_mode', 'display_order_mode', 'display_effect_mode' and 'display_effect_period' can be defined and managed for each static image.

If due to a variety of static images, the 'ref_to_still_index', which specifies the index number of the static image, is defined as the index number of the last static images or linked images. If you connected only one static image, a value of 'ref_to_still_index' is defined as '0×FFFF'.

As another variant example of implementation of the present invention, as indicated on Figa, could be achieved without the inclusion of the 'ref_to_still_index'.

Figv illustrare the method of static images in accordance with one example embodiment of the invention, which coincides with Figa, except that the labels of the playlist can also be defined as a label film. The label film is used for control blocks videopicture (VPUs). Prescribed unit audio/video clip, where the recorded video and audio data, or recorded only video data is called a block of videopicture (VPU). The unit videopicture (VPU) can be recorded and managed as a separate file. Navigation information can be recorded and managed so that a static image or video, the block videopicture (VPU), is displayed at a specific position, in which it is desirable to display a slide show, for example, in the center of the displayed moving image.

Figv illustrates an example implementation of the navigation information for static images and blocks of videopicture (VPUs), provided by the associated labels playlist. This exemplary embodiment of the present invention coincides with the example shown in Figa, except that if the label is the label film (for example, label type =0×11), together with the label film provides additional information for reproducing unit videopicture (VPU). In particular, feature Indyk is the Torah fields: 'VPU_Clip_file_name', to ensure the file name of the clip unit videopicture (VPU), 'VPU_start_TM' and 'VPU_end_TM' to select and run a specific recording unit videopicture (VPU), 'VPU_data_size'indicating the data size of the recording unit videopicture (VPU), and 'VPU_info', providing information about the properties of the video data recorded in the block videopicture (VPU).

Figs illustrates another example implementation of the present invention the information field labels playlist. As shown, this embodiment coincides with the example given on FIGU, except that is not included navigation information for a static image.

Figa illustrates another example of the method of static images in accordance with the present invention. In this example, navigation information such as a time display and how to display a static image or group of images provided by one or more indicators of static images. As shown, the indicator static image links one static image or group of images with audio/video clip. Audio/video clip may contain video and audio data of a movie together or only audio data. Static and what the considerations applying can be stored in one image file, or each still image may be stored in a separate image file.

As shown in Figa indicator static image 'PlayListSlideshowlndicator' is a new information field added to the playlist file 'PlayList_File'. In this new information field indicates the length of the information field and the number of images in the playlist 'number_of_PlayList_stills'. For each frame of the playlist information field indicator playlist 'PlayListStilllndicator' specifies the time stamp 'still_time_stamp', the initial index number assigned(s) static(s) image(s), written(s) on sialoceles disk read-only (BD-ROM), 'ref_to_still_start_index', and the number of static images 'number__of_still_images.'

Timestamp 'still_time_stamp' indicators of static images of the playlist indicates where a static image of the playlist, and it indicates the point on the time axis of the audio/video clips (for example, on the basis of the basic time entry (PBX) and/or main system time (STC)), where a static image of the playlist.

Moreover, as shown in Figa, for each static image associated with the static image of the playlist, following information is: duration 'duration' display a static image synchronisation indicator display 'display_timing_mode', indicator display order 'display_order_mode', the impact indicator to display 'display_effect_mode' and the indicator of the interval of exposure time on the display 'display_effect_period'. These indicators were defined above in accordance with Figa.

Figv illustrates another example of the method of static images and blocks of videopicture (VPUs) in accordance with the present invention. In this example, navigation information such as a time display and how to display a static image or group of images and/or unit videopicture (VPU) is one or more indicators of slide shows. As shown, the indicator slide show concatenates one or a group of still images with audio/video clip or connects the power videopicture (VPU) with audio/video clip. Audio/video clip may contain video and audio data of the movie or only audio data. Static images can be stored in one image file, or each still image may be stored in a file separate images.

As shown in Figv, the indicator slide show 'PlayListSlideshowlndicator' is a new information field added to the playlist file 'PlayList_File'. In this new information field ukazyvayutsya information field and the number of objects slide show 'number_of_slideshow_objects'. For each object slide show indicator slide show indicates the time stamp 'still_time_stamp'. Timestamp 'still_time_stamp' indicates where the object is located a slide show, and it indicates the point on the time axis of the audio/video clips (for example, on the basis of the basic time entry (PBX) and/or main system time (STC)), where the object is located a slide show.

If the object slide show is a static image, provided the initial index number of the corresponding(s) static(s) image(s), written(s) on inelusion disk read-only (BD-ROM), 'ref_to_still_start_index', and the number of static images 'number_of_still_images'. Moreover, as shown in Figv, for each static image associated with the playlist static image, following information is: duration 'duration' display a static image, the synchronization indicator display 'display_timing_mode', the indicator display order 'display_order_mode', the impact indicator to display 'display_effect_mode' and the indicator of the interval of exposure time on the display 'display_effect_period'. These indicators were defined above in accordance with Figa.

If the object slide show is a unit videopicture (VPU), are specified and written information 'VPU_Clip_file_name' identifies the file clip above unit videopicture (VPU), information 'VPU_start_TM' and 'VPU_end_TM' to select and run a specific unit record unit videopicture (VPU), 'VPU_data_size'indicating the size of the recorded data block videopicture (VPU), and information 'VPU_info' about the properties of the video data recorded in the block videopicture (VPU).

Figure 10 illustrates another example of the method of static images in accordance with the present invention. In this example, the playback controls are used to control one or more static images. For example, as shown, some elements of the playback control video and audio data of a movie or only audio data, and some elements of the playback control static image, a group of static images or a slide show (or part of a slide show) and marked as elements of playback images.

Audio/video clip corresponding to the playlist can contain video and audio data of the movie or just its audio data. Static images can be stored in one image file, or each still image may be stored in a file separate images. The elements play a playlist provide navigation information relating to static and what the considerations applying and audio/video clip. It should be understood that a static image and, for example, audio data is recorded in separate files and are managed as separate files. Thus, the static image and audio data can be played back together, but independently of one another. This allows, for example, during the presentation of static images continuously cyclically reproduced (i.e. repeat) clip the audio data associated with the static images that make up the slide show.

Figa illustrates an example implementation of the information field of the element of play in accordance with the present invention. The information field element playback 'PlayItem' specifies the length of the information field and specifies the file name of the clip data 'Clip_Information_file_name'associated with the element of play.

In addition, the information field element playback includes indicator 'Clip_codec-identifier', indicating whether the element is playing a static element of play and associated with one or more static images. For example, the field 'Clip_codec_identifier' can specify the encoding format of the static image, for example, JPEG (Joint Photography Experts Group - a method of image compression and the corresponding graphic format), which then serves to indicate that the element of play is what I static element playback to display a static image.

If the type information of the characteristic point (CPI)specified in the information file of the clip associated with the item of the play, is a type map entry point (EP), indicated by type information about the characteristic point (CPI)=1, then the element of play is the main system time (STC) 'ref_to_STC-id' for the clip is marked with the name of the information file clip 'Clip_Information_file_name'.

In addition, the element of play includes the field 'IN_time' and 'OUT_time'. Field 'IN_time' occupies 2 bytes and indicates the index number of the first static image among related images stored in the file static image, and the 'OUT-time' specifies the index number of the last static image among related images.

Moreover, as shown in Figa, if the element of play is a static element of play, then the number of static images 'number_of_still_images'; and for each static image, following information is: duration 'duration' display a static image, the synchronization indicator display 'display_timing_mode', the indicator display order 'display_order_mode', the impact indicator to display 'display_effect_mode' and the indicator of the interval of exposure time on the display 'display_ffect_period'. These indicators were defined above in accordance with Figa.

It should be noted, although not shown in Figure 10, that the element of play can also serve as an element of the playback unit videopicture (VPU). Figv illustrates an example implementation of an element of the playback unit videopicture (VPU). Here the codec identifier of the clip indicates an element of play as an element of the playback unit videopicture (VPU) and provides the same information about the unit videopicture (VPU), which was discussed above in connection with labels, films and objects slide show block videopicture (VPU).

Figa illustrates another example implementation of the method of controlling the stop-frames in accordance with the present invention. In this example, the sub playback used to control one or more static images, whereas for data management film (for example, audio and video data or only audio data elements are used playing. Subcell playback specifies the playlist subchannel playback.

In this way a static image or group of images stored in the file static image associated with the subcell playback, included in the list reproduced what I am. Audio/video clip corresponding to the playlist can contain video and audio data of a movie together or just its audio data. Static images can be stored in one image file, or each still image may be stored in a file separate images. It should be understood that a static image and, for example, audio data is recorded in separate files and are managed as separate files. Thus, the static image and audio data can be played back together, but independently. This allows, for example, during the presentation of static images continuously cyclically reproduced (i.e. repeat) clip the audio data associated with the static images that make up the slide show.

Figa illustrates an example implementation of the information field of the sub playback in accordance with the present invention. The information field subcell play 'SubPlayltem' specifies the length of the information field and specifies the file name of the clip data 'Clip_Information_File_Name'associated with the subcell playback.

In addition, the information field of the sub playback includes indicator 'Clip_codec-identifier' and the type indicator 'SubPlayltem_type', which indicate whether an item is a reproduction static item do the Oia and associated with one or more static images. For example, the field 'Clip_codec_identifier' can specify the encoding format of the static image, for example, 'JPEG' (Joint Photography Experts Group - a method of image compression and the corresponding graphic format), which then serves to indicate that the element of play is a static element of the play, to display a static image. Regarding the type indicator 'SubPlayltem_type', if the type indicator 'SubPlayltem_type' is, for example, "2", it indicates that the subcell play is associated with a subchannel playback to display one or more related images.

In addition, the subcell play also includes the field 'IN_time' and 'OUT_time'. Field 'IN_time' occupies 2 bytes and indicates the index number of the first static image among related images stored in the file static images, and the 'OUT-time' specifies the index number of the last static image among related images.

Next subcell playback includes a reference main system time (STC) 'ref_to_STC_id' for the clip is marked with the name of the information file clip 'Clip-Information_file_name', the ID of the element playback containing the subcell play 'sync_Playitem_id'indicator 'Sync_start_PTS_of_Playitem' time in the item displayed is edenia, marked 'sync_Playitem_id.'

Moreover, as shown in Figa, if the element of play is a static element of play, then the number of static images 'number_of_still_images' and for each static image, following information is: duration 'duration' display a static image, the synchronization indicator display 'display_timing_mode', the indicator display order 'display_order_mode', the impact indicator to display 'display_effect_mode' and the indicator of the interval of exposure time on the display 'display_effect_period'. These indicators were defined above in accordance with Figa.

In an alternative embodiment, video and audio data of the movie or only its audio data is controlled using the subcell play, and static images, static images or a slide show (or part of it) govern the use of playback.

Figv illustrates an example implementation of the present invention, coinciding with the exemplary embodiment of the present invention, indicated at Figa, with the exception that the subcell play can also serve as a subcell playback unit videopicture (VPU) to control the playback unit videopicture (VPU).

Figv illustrious is an example implementation of the sub playback in accordance with an example implementation, listed on Figv. As shown, the exemplary embodiment of the subcell play presented on FIGU coincides with the example depicted in FIGU, except that if the codec identifier of the clip and/or led type subcell play indicate that the subcell play is a subcell of the playback unit videopicture (VPU), the subcell playback optionally specifies the block size of videopicture (VPU) and information about the properties of the video data recorded in the block videopicture (VPU). For example, in relation to type indicator 'SubPlayltem_type', if the type indicator 'SubPlayltem_type' is, for example, "3", it indicates that the subcell play is associated with a subchannel playback unit videopicture (VPU).

The following is a detailed description of embodiments of the method of recording packages static information for identifying positions of the display of static images. Figa shows how to capture packets static information for identifying positions of the display images in accordance with one example implementation of the present invention. Under this method, the source packets recorded in the initial and final positions display a static image contained in the audio/videootoscopy, the specified at least one type of navigation information among labels images, indicators, static images, playback controls static images and sub playback, defined as packets of information from static images to identify groups of images.

Package information the static image includes a 4-byte extended header of the transport packet (TP) and a 188-byte transport packet (TP) in MPEG2 format (standard for the compression of moving images and sound based on the speed of the encoding modes and providing several quality levels playback from VHS to HDTV). In addition, the transport packet (TP) in the MPEG2 format includes a packet header and payload. As shown in Figa, the information of the static image includes the field 'still_start_end_flag', 'number_of_images' and 'display_info', recorded in the payload.

For example, if the field 'still_start_end_flag' is '0', it indicates the starting position of the display a static image. If this field is set to '1', it indicates the end position of the display a static image. Field 'number_of_images' has meaning only in the initial position of the display, and in the field 'display_info' stores the display order, the effect on the display, the interval time and the impact on the display, etc.

If the decoding process in the system videodisplay processor (video display processor (VDP)), such as the reading on Fig, during playback of video and/or audio data of a movie recorded in audio/video clip reveals the source package includes the static image, that is, the information about the static image, the playback device optical drive displays a static image after you stop playback of a video film or displays a static image simultaneously with playback of the audio data.

As for the 'still_start_end_flag', system videodisplay processor (VDP) starts or stops the display of static images. Two different types of packages - initial package static image and the final package static image can be recorded respectively in initial and final positions display a static image.

Figv illustrates a method of recording information packet about the slide shows to identify positions display a slide show in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. In this way the original packets recorded in the initial and final positions of the display shows the slides contained in the audio/video clip, indicated that at least some of the type of navigation information among labels playlist indicators of static images, displays, slide shows, playback elements and sub-elements of play are defined as packets of information about the slide show for the identification of groups of images.

A package of information about the slide show contains a 4-byte extended header of the transport packet (TP)and a 188-byte transport packet (TP) in the MPEG2 format. Transport packet (TP) in the MPEG2 format includes a packet header and payload. As shown in Figv, information about the slide show includes the field 'slideshow_start_end_flag', field 'number_of_images' and 'display_info'if the package of information about the slide show is a package of information, static images, and duration fields display unit videopicture (VPU) and the size of the data block videopicture (VPU), a package of information about the slide show is a package of information unit videopicture (VPU).

If the decoding process in the system videodisplay processor (VDP), shown in Fig, during playback of video and/or audio data of a movie recorded in audio/video clip reveals the source of the package with information about the slide show, there is a package of information about the slide show, playback device optical drive displays a static image or a block of videopicture (VP) after stopping playback of a video film or displays a static image simultaneously with playback of the audio data.

As for the 'still_start_end_flag', system videodisplay processor (VDP) starts or stops the display of static images. Two different types of packages - initial package static image and the final package static image can be recorded respectively in initial and final positions display a static image.

On Fig depicts a method of recording information packet static images to identify the position of the display images in accordance with another embodiment of the present invention. In this way packets of information images are added to the display positions of all the images contained in the audio/video clip, specified navigation information, which is used at least one type of label images, indicators, static images, playback controls static images or sub playback. In this embodiment, a static image can be detected on packet information of static images.

As described above, the information package static image contains information about the static image, including the 'still_start_end_flag' and 'display_info'. Field 'display_info' includes the display order in the action on the display, the interval of exposure time on the display, etc.

If the decoding process in the system videodisplay processor (VDP), shown in Fig, during playback of video and/or audio data of a movie recorded in audio/video clip reveals the source package with the static image, that is, the information package static image, the playback device optical drive displays a static image after you stop playback of a video film or displays a static image simultaneously with playback of the audio data.

The information package static images can be added to both the initial and the final position of the static image. As for the 'still_start_end_flag', system videodisplay processor (VDP) starts or stops the display of static images. Two different types of packages - initial package static image and the final package static image can be recorded respectively in initial and final positions display a static image.

The playback device optical drive outputs the data of the film and a static image or audio data and images, for example, connected to the TV by accessing the navigation information is accordance with the present invention, such as labels, images, indicators, static images, indicators of slide shows, the elements of the playback images and the sub play. On Fig schematically shows an example implementation of the device recording and playback of the optical disc in accordance with the present invention. As shown in the drawing, the encoder audio/video 9 receives and encodes data (e.g., video and audio data of the movie, only the audio data and/or data of a static image). Encoder audio/video 9 outputs the coded data together with information on coding and information about the properties of the flow. The multiplexer 8 multiplexes the coded data on the basis of information about coding and information about the properties of the stream to create, for example, a transport stream MPEG-2. The source device packaging 7 pattisue transport packets from the multiplexer 8 in the original packages in accordance with the audio/video optical disc. As shown in Fig, the work of encoder audio/video signal 9, the multiplexer 8 and the source device packaging 7 is controlled by the controller 10. The controller 10 receives user input data on a write operation, and provides control information to the audio/video encoder 9, the multiplexer 8 and the source device packaging 7. Nab is emer, the controller 10 generates an audio/video encoder 9 team about the type of encoding to be performed, generates the multiplexer 8 team of traffic that you want to create, and gives the source device packaging 7 command on the format of the source package. Next, the controller 10 controls the drive 3 to record the output from the source device packaging 7 on the optical disk.

In addition, the controller 10 generates the navigation and control information for controlling reproduction of data recorded on an optical disc. For example, on the basis of information received through the user interface (for example, the set of commands that are saved on the disk provided through intranet or Internet computer system and so on), the controller 10 controls the drive 3 to record on the optical disk in one or more data structures figure 1-15.

During playback, the controller 10 controls the drive 3 to reproduce this data structure. On the basis of the information contained therein, as well as input from the user received via the user interface (for example, from the control buttons on the recorder and playback or remote device remote control), the controller 10 controls the drive 3 to reproduce data from the optical disk. For example, the R, as mentioned above, in respect of embodiments of the present invention a static image or a static image can be reproduced together with video and audio data of a movie or only audio data based on the navigation information. Moreover, an image or group of images can be played as slide shows or part of the slide show. As also mentioned, the slide show can be synchronized, available for viewing, etc.

Reproduced the original packets are received by the source device deacetylase 4 and converted into a data stream (for example, in a stream of transport packets of the MPEG-2 format). The demultiplexer 5 further demultiplexes the data stream into encoded data. Audio/video decoder 6 decodes the coded data to obtain the original data entered in the audio/video encoder 9. During playback, the original device deacetylase 4, demultiplexer 5 and the audio/video decoder 6 is controlled by the controller 10. The controller 10 receives user input on playback operations and provides control information to the audio/video decoder 6, the demultiplexer 5 and the source device packaging 4. For example, the controller 10 displays the audio/video decoder 9 team about the type of decoding to be performed, wide is the demultiplexer 5 team of the transport stream, want to demultiplex, and also gives the device deacetylase 4 command on the format of the source package.

While Fig explains the recorder and playback, it should be understood that it is possible to create a device only for recording or playback only using the parts Fig, which provide the function of recording or playback.

Hereinafter will be described some of the different types of slide shows with reference to Fig-20. It should be understood that this is just examples, and the data structure according to the present invention also provides for other types of slide shows.

On Fig-19 provides examples of synchronized or coordinated time slide shows. In this example, the display elements (blocks videopicture (VPU) and/or elements in the form of static images) are displayed at certain points in time. The examples on Fig-19, the display elements are displayed at certain moments of time in synchronization with the audio data reproduced from the audio/video clip. The time and duration of display of each display element are determined by the navigation information from the playlist. For example, the navigation information includes one or more labels playlist, indicators stat the mental images or slide shows, of playback elements and sub-elements of play that are described in detail above. Navigation information for the audio data is supplied by the element of play or subcell playback in the playlist. The navigation information may also indicate whether to play sequential or random.

On Fig depicts an example of a sequential synchronized playback. Here are seven display elements Display No. 1-No. 7, which include blocks of videopicture (VPUs) No. 1 and No. 2 and the elements in the form of static images No. 1 to No. 5 are shown in the moments of time specified for each display item.

On Fig shows an example of random play seven display elements Display No. 1-No. 7. Here the system videodisplay processor (VDP) gets the time of submission for each element in the display of navigation information, but arbitrarily chooses which item display to display each of the received time of submission. On Fig shows an example where the first part of the play is carried out in a consistent way, and the second part of the play is carried out in an arbitrary manner.

On Fig shows an example of viewing a slide show. When the slide show is available for viewing, each display item display to receive user input data about the change of the display element. In the slide show available for viewing, navigation information indicates a duration of, for example, a static image as infinite. Received from the user input can specify the execution of transition to the next display item or previous item in the display. When the slide show is available for viewing, playing with the audio data, as shown in Fig, synchronization between the audio data and the display elements is missing. Instead, the audio data is continuously and repeatedly played back during slide shows. As described further below in connection with block videopicture (VPU) No. 1, if the power videopicture (VPU) is reproduced as item display and playback unit videopicture (VPU) is completed before receipt of the user input data about the change of the display element, the last frame of the unit videopicture (VPU), is maintained as a static image. As with synchronized slide show, display elements of the display can be sequential or random. On Fig depicted serial viewed the slide show.

The following is a more detailed description of the execution of PR is considered to be a slide show on the basis of the navigation information. As discussed, viewed the slide show can be played on the basis of the labels of the playlist defined as a label images. In this example, the controller 10 reproduces the playlist and on the basis of the navigation information contained in the playlist, the controller 10 reproduces a still image together, for example, only audio data. The playlist provides navigation information, for example the element of play or subcell playback for audio data and provides the label of the static image, linking a static image with audio data. The controller 10 generates a static image up until the user will not be received input data to the controller 10 to move to the next or previous static image. The controller 10 reproduces the next or previous still image. This is the next or previous image may be the next or previous picture in the group of images referenced by the label is a static image, or may be a static image referenced by the next or previous mark of static images in the playlist. A similar action for the currently displayed display sly is s can be carried out on the basis of indicators of static images.

In addition, you are viewing the slide show can be played on the basis of playback elements or sub-elements of play that are identified as elements of the playback images or sub playback images. Here, the controller 10 reproduces, for example, only the audio data specified in the playlist element playback or subcell play, not a static image, and reproduces a still image or one of a set of static images specified in the playlist element playing a static image or subcell play a static image. The controller 10 generates a static image up until the user will not be received input data for the controller 10 to the next or previous static image. The controller 10 then plays the next or previous still image. This is the next or previous image may be the next or previous picture in the group of images referenced by the current item playing in a static image or subcell play in a static image, or may be a static image is, referenced by the next or previous item play as a static image or subcell play in a static image in the playlist.
