具体实施方式 Detailed ways

[0026] 此系统和方法用于在客户端设备上以虚拟透镜查看高分辨率的部分图像。 [0026] The system and method for viewing at high resolution on the client device to a virtual lens portion image. 为响应用户要求查看图像的请求,客户端设备可以通过网络,从服务器上求得基本水平分辨率的图像的副本。 In response to a user request to view an image requirements, client device via a network, obtain substantially horizontal resolution copy of the image from the server. 从其先前存储、检索、或输入到服务器上的高质量,高分辨率的图像的基础上,服务器可以存储、产生、或输入基本分辨率图像并可将此基本分辨率的图像传输到客户端设备上。 From a previously stored, retrieved, or on the server is input to the high-quality, high-resolution image based on the server may store, generate, or base resolution image may input this base resolution image transferred to the client on the device. 基本分辨率图像的分辨率低于其先前存储在、产生的、或输入到服务器上的高分辨率图像的分辨率。 Resolution of the base resolution image is less than its previously stored, produced, or the resolution of the input to the high-resolution image on the server. 客户端设备或网络的功能可以至少部分地决定其基本分辨率图像的分辨率。 Client device or network functions which may at least partially determine the resolution of the base resolution image. 客户端设备被设置为从服务器接收到基本分辨率图像并从显示界面上显示其基本分辨率图像。 Client device is arranged to receive from the server and display the base-resolution image from the base-resolution image on a display screen. 客户端设备的用户可以在基本分辨率图像上选择感兴趣的区域,从服务器上请求获取对应于用户确定的感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像,此高分辨率图像的分辨率可高达在服务器上存储的、生成的、或输入的高分辨率图像的分辨率。 Client device user can select the area of ​​interest on the base resolution image, acquires a request from the server corresponding to the region of interest determined by the user's high resolution image, the resolution of this high resolution image on the server may be as high as resolution stored, generated, or an input high resolution image. 例如,在一些实施例中,客户端设备可以被设置为在感兴趣的区域上呈现一个“虚拟透镜”,叠置于基本分辨率图像上,并显示对应于感兴趣区域的局部高分辨率的图像。 For example, in some embodiments, the client device may be arranged to present in the region of interest a "virtual lens", stacked on base-resolution image, and displays the local region of interest corresponding to the high resolution image. 此虚拟透镜可以显示感兴趣区域的更详细的图像,使用户能够“放大”感兴趣区域内的细节。 This virtual lens may be shown in more detail in the image region of interest, so that the user can "zoom in" within the region of interest detail. 客户端设备或网络的能力可以至少部分地决定其虚拟透镜的尺寸和所显示的高分辨率图像的分辨率。 Capabilities of the client device or network may at least partially determine the resolution of the lens and the size of the virtual high-resolution image is displayed.

[0027] 在一些实施例中,对应于感兴趣区域或包括感兴趣区域的局部图像,只有部分的高分辨率图像可以从服务器发送到客户端设备。 [0027] In some embodiments, corresponding to the region of interest or comprises a local image area of ​​interest, only a portion of the high-resolution image can be sent from the server to the client device. 在其它实施例中,一个完整的高分辨率图像可以由服务器发送到客户端设备,客户端设备可以被设置为选择对应于感兴趣区域的局部高分辨率图像并由虚拟透镜来显示该部分的高分辨率图像。 In other embodiments, a full resolution image can be sent by the server to the client device, the client device may be arranged to select a region of interest corresponding to a partial high-resolution image is displayed by the virtual lens portion high-resolution images.

[0028] 在一些实施例中,虚拟透镜可以在完整的基本分辨率图像上提供重叠图像,其位置为所显示的相应的高分辨率图像部分,这样虚拟透镜可同文显示更高分辨率的图像,同时提供其所选择的分辨率水平。 [0028] In some embodiments, the lens may be provided a virtual image superimposed on the full resolution image, the position corresponding resolution image is displayed, the virtual lens so that an image can be displayed with higher resolution text while providing a level of resolution of their choice. 该设置使其能够在一个应用程序中可用的显示空间内查看高分辨率的图像,同时提供上下文关联的重叠图像。 This setting makes it possible to view high-resolution image in a display space available in the application, while providing context sensitive superimposed image. 根据一个实施例,即使是在计算机系统的分辨率不足以表现完整的高分辨率图像的情况下,以及在不希望或不必要使用大量的显示空间来显示完整的高分辨率图像的情况下,这些技术可以用于显示至少一个图像相对应的局部的高分辨率内容。 According to one embodiment, not sufficiently exhibited even when the full resolution of the high resolution image in a computer system, and the lower the undesired or unnecessary to use a large amount of display space to display the full resolution image of the situation, these techniques can be used to display at least one high-resolution image corresponding to the partial content.

[0029] 在有些实施例中,用户能够以高分辨率查看所选择的感兴趣区域的图像。 [0029] In some embodiments, the user can view the image of the selected region of interest at high resolution. 另一些实施例使得用户能够在图像的任何部分移动选择感兴趣的区域。 Other embodiments enable a user to select any portion of the area of ​​interest in the moving image. 这些技术可帮助减少在给定的时间内通过网络发送高分辨率图像的数据量,并且还可以减少所需的在显示区域上显示的图象数据量,以及客户端设备和服务器所需的处理能力和存储量。 These techniques can help reduce the amount of data sent over the network in a high-resolution image within a given time, and the amount of processing required to display the desired image data on the display area, and the client device and the server may also reduce the capacity and storage capacity. 此外,这些技术可以用来在各种使用场景中优化其响应时间。 In addition, these techniques may be used to optimize the response time of use in a variety of scenarios.

[0043].顶级分辨率,是大于或等于高分辨率,且小于或等于最大分辨率的分辨率。 [0043]. Top-resolution, high resolution greater than or equal to and less than or equal to the maximum resolution of the resolution.

[0044] 在一个实施例中,高分辨率的静态图像可以是3648x2736像素(水平X垂直),每个像素的颜色为24位,典型的数字相机具`有10兆像素的分辨率。 [0044] In one embodiment, the high-resolution still image can be 3648x2736 pixels (horizontal X vertical), the color of each pixel is 24, a digital camera having a typical `10 mega pixel resolution. 然而,这仅仅是一个示例,熟练的技术人员可认识到,高分辨率图像可以有各种不同的分辨率。 However, this is merely an example, skilled in the art may recognize that a high resolution image can have a variety of resolutions.

[0045] 一个典型的高分辨率图像可以消耗相当大的内存量,其量可能过大而不能以原本的分辨率在客户的显示器上可用区域内完全显示。 [0045] A typical high-resolution image can consume a considerable amount of memory, which may be too large an amount can not be fully available to the original resolution of the display area on a display of the client. 一个典型的高分辨率图像也可能花耗相当长的时间(例如,几秒钟或更长时间)通过网络从服务器下载,而给客户端、服务器或网络增大负荷。 A typical high-resolution image may take considerable time consumption (e.g., a few seconds or more) downloaded from a server via a network, and the client, server or network load increases. 在许多应用中,基本分辨率(低到中等的)的图像可以足够用于图像的基本查检。 In many applications, the basic resolution (low to medium) of the basic image may be sufficient for the subject image search. 用户偶尔需要看高分辨率(比基本分辨率更高的分辨率)的图像,检查感兴趣区域的图像的细节。 Occasionally, the user needs to see an image of high resolution (resolution substantially higher than the resolution), check the details of the image of the region of interest. 在某些实施例中,用户能以高分辨率查看重叠于基本分辨率图像的局部图像。 In certain embodiments, the user can view the high-resolution partial images superimposed on the base resolution image.

[0046] 有些常规的图像查看系统允许用户放大图像的局部,但是,这些系统通常只是使用数字变倍方法放大部分的计算机显示,而不是获取和显示包含了额外细节的更高分辨率的图像。 [0046] Some conventional systems allow the user to view an enlarged image of the partial image, however, these systems are usually only used to amplify a computer using digital zoom display section, instead of acquiring and displaying an image comprising a higher resolution additional details. 在一些传统的系统中,对应于显示给用户的图像的像素阵列部分,用数字变倍方法可建立一个放大效应。 In some conventional systems, to the pixel array corresponding to the display portion of the image of the user, the method may be established by a digital magnification zoom effect. 这种方法不提供任何额外的细节,而只是使用一个较低的分辨率的图像以创建模拟放大图像。 This method does not provide any additional details, but only use a lower image resolution to create an enlarged image simulation. 例如,原来的较低分辨率的图像中的像素可以被复制而创建成模拟放大的图像,同时可能施加一个或多个平滑法则到放大的图像而已。 For example, pixels in the image of the original lower resolution can be copied into an analog create enlarged image, and may be applied to one or more smooth law magnified image only. 然而,如此所得到的模拟放大的图像缺乏额外的细节,并且可能显现在原本始图像中所没有的粗粒状。 However, the analog amplification of the image thus obtained lacks additional detail, and may appear in the original image of the beginning rough grain that are not. 一些传统的系统仅仅是放大整个图像而不是一个用户选择的感兴趣区域的图像。 Some conventional systems are merely an enlarged image of the entire image rather than a user selected region of interest. 例如,Adobe ReadeW和Microsoft Office®只是放大整个图像或文档页面,而不是用户选择的感兴趣的领域内的图像或文档页面。 For example, Adobe ReadeW and Microsoft Office® only magnify the entire image or document pages instead of images or document pages selected by the user in the field of interest.

[0047] 与此相比,图像查看系统100以高分辨率显示用户选择的感兴趣的区域,这样的图像是以最大分辨率捕获或产生的。 [0047] In contrast to this, the image viewing system 100 displays a user selected region of interest at high resolution, the maximum resolution of such an image is captured or generated. 客户端设备110可以提供最大分辨率中所有的细节来显示用户选择的感兴趣区域,可以显示感兴趣的区域在上下文关联的完整的基本分辨率图像中。 The client device 110 may provide maximum resolution to display all the details of the region of interest selected by the user, may be displayed substantially full resolution image region of interest in the context of the associated. 根据一个实施例,用户选择的区域内的图像可以高分辨率显示,并重叠在完整的基本分辨率图像上。 According to one embodiment, the user-selected regions within the image may be a high resolution display, and substantially superimposed on the full resolution image.

[0048] 传统的系统也没有使用基于客户端-服务器的方法进行数字式放大或上下文关联的高分辨率显示。 [0048] Conventional systems based on the client did not use - high resolution digital amplification method server or context-sensitive display. 在传统的系统中,图像或文件被存储在本地的计算机系统上,并使用上面描述的传统技术将文件的全部或部分放大。 In a conventional system, the image or file is on the local computer system, and stored using conventional techniques described above all or part of the file amplification. 与此相比,图像查看系统100可以使用客户端-服务器基础的方法,其中大的高分辨率图像被存储、产生、或输入到服务器120,而一个较小的基本分辨率的图像,可从网络130发送到客户端设备110作图像基本检验。 In contrast to this, the image viewing system 100 may use a client - server based method, wherein large high-resolution image is stored, generated, or inputted to the server 120, and a smaller base resolution image, from network 130 transmits to the client device 110 for the basic test image. 高分辨率图像仅在需要时发送,而不必要为每个基本分辨率图像而发送,从而节省了网络带宽,以及在客户端设备和服务器的处理和存储的资源。 Transmission of high resolution images only when necessary, and unnecessary transmitted for each base-resolution image, thus saving network bandwidth, and a resource in the client device and the processing and storage server. 在一些实施例中,作为进一步的优化,如果用户预期只需要以高分辨率查看图像的一部分时,该部分而不是整个高分辨率图像可以通过网络130由服务器发送到客户端设备。 In some embodiments, a further optimization, if the user desired to view only a portion of the image at high resolution, rather than the entire portion of the high-resolution image can be sent by the server to the client device 130 via the network. 由于一个高分辨率的图像即使在被压缩后也可以是一兆字节或更大数,若减少传输次数,或者仅仅是通过网络传输相应于客户端用户选择的感兴趣区域的局部高分辨率图像,这个高效率系统所具有的良好的整体响应时间得以体现出。 Since a high-resolution image even after being compressed may be a number of megabytes or more, if the number of transmissions to reduce, or simply transmitted through the network client corresponding to the user selected region of interest of the high-resolution partial image, the high efficiency of the system has good overall response time to reflect.

[0049] 现在,返回到图1,图像查看系统100中的客户端设备110可以被设置为允许用户以不同分辨率查看其存储、产生、或输入到服务器120的图像。 [0049] Returning now to FIG. 1, an image viewing system 110 in the client device 100 may be provided to allow a user to view different resolutions stored, generated, or inputted to the image server 120. 客户端设备110的显示区域150显示基本分辨率图像,而虚拟透镜160显示其重叠在基本分辨率图像上的高分辨率的图像部分。 Display region 150 of the client device 110 base-resolution image display, the virtual lens 160 while displaying an image overlapping portion on the base resolution image high resolution. 根据一个实施例,显示区域150可以是在客户端设备110上运行的应用程序的全部或部分显示窗口,如网络查看器、文字处理应用程序、图像查看器或编辑器应用程序、以及用户希望在其中查看高分辨率图像内容的其他类型应用程序。 According to one embodiment, the display area 150 may be all or part of a display window of an application program running on client device 110, such as a network view, a word processing application, an image viewer or editor application, and the user wishes to see other types of applications in which high-resolution image content.

[0050] 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110可以被设置为显示不同形状的虚拟透镜160。 [0050] According to one embodiment, client device 110 may be set to show different shapes of the dummy lens 160. 例如,虚拟透镜可以是矩形、圆形、卵形、或其它形状。 For example, the virtual lens may be rectangular, circular, oval, or other shapes. 根据一些实施例,虚拟透镜可以包括一些附件,如一个帧和手柄。 According to some embodiments, the virtual lens may include some accessories, such as a frame and a handle. 例如,在一个实施例中,虚拟透镜可以是一个放大镜的形状,成为一个可移动的放大镜重叠在基本分辨率图像上。 For example, in one embodiment, the virtual lens shape may be a magnifying glass, a moveable lens to become superimposed on the base resolution image. 在这个放大镜形状的虚拟透镜160上,用户可以以高分辨率查看其选择的感兴趣区域的局部图像,此局部图像从服务器120通过网络130传输到客户端设备110 (传输140)。 In this virtual shape magnifying lens 160, the user can view the selected partial image area of ​​interest at high resolution, the partial image 120 from the server 110 to the client device 130 via the transmission network (transmission 140).

[0051] 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110可以被设置为允许用户使用指点设备移动显示区域150中重叠在基本分辨率图像上的虚拟透镜160,以变换虚拟透镜160中所显示的高分辨率的局部图像。 [0051] According to one embodiment, client device 110 may be provided to allow the user to use a pointing a mobile device display area 150 superimposed on the image of the virtual base-resolution lens 160, the transform lens 160 in the virtual high-resolution displayed the partial image. 如上所述,虚拟透镜160作为在显示区域150中基本分辨率图像上的高分辨率图像放大镜,实际上并没有放大基本分辨率图像,而是虚拟透镜160显示从服务器120接收的局部高分辨率图像。 As described above, the virtual lens 160 as a high-resolution image magnifier on the base resolution image display area 150, is not actually an enlarged base resolution image, but a partial virtual high-resolution lens 160 received from the server 120 image.

[0052] 例如,在线医学进修继续教育课程的提供者可以使用图像查看系统100来显示培训幻灯片,包括数字显微镜图像。 [0052] For example, continuing education courses online medical education providers can use image viewing system 100 to display the slides training, including digital microscope images. 这些数字图像可以是非常大的尺寸,如果将一个实际尺寸的高分辨率图像从服务器120发送到客户端设备110将消耗大量网络带宽。 These digital images can be very large size, if the actual size of a high-resolution image transmitted from the server 120 to the client device 110 will consume a lot of network bandwidth. 然而服务器120可以提供基本分辨率的数字幻灯片图像以表达特定的概念。 However, the server 120 may provide digital slide base resolution image for expression of particular concept. 如果用户想看到更多的细节,用户可以在基本分辨率图像上选择一个感兴趣的区域,客户端设备110可用重叠在基本分辨率图像上的虚拟透镜160来呈现一个高分辨率的图像。 If the user wants to see more detail, the user can select a region of interest on the base resolution image, the client device 110 may be superimposed on the base-resolution image lens 160 to render a virtual high-resolution image. 用户可以看到高分辨率图像的更多细节。 Users can see more details of the high-resolution images. 这种方法可以更有效地使用服务器120和客户端设备110的网络和计算资源,因为客户端设备不需要请求服务器120为所查看的每一个基本分辨率图像发送高分辨率图像。 This method can be more efficient use of computing resources and network server 120 and client device 110, because the device does not need the client requests the server 120 transmits the high resolution image for each base resolution image viewing. 当用户只需要以高分辨率查看部分的图像(例如,一个选定的感兴趣区域及周边区域),由于只有该部分而不是整个的高分辨率的图像从服务器发送到客户端的设备,其效率得以进一步提高。 When the user needs to see only the image (e.g., a selected region of interest and the peripheral region) of the high resolution portion, since not only the portion of the entire high-resolution image from the server to the client device, the efficiency be further improved. 在一些实施例中,虚拟透镜160可以被设置为出现在基本分辨率图像的特定的位置上,以便突出数字幻灯片中某个特定的特征来显示教材中的重点。 In some embodiments, the virtual lens 160 may be set to appear at a specific location on the base resolution image, in a digital slide to highlight the particular features of the displayed key textbook. 在一些实施例中,用户也可以动态地控制虚拟透镜160的定位和大小,并且可以根椐用户感兴趣区域的变更动态地从服务器120更新虚拟透镜160中的高分辨率内容。 In some embodiments, the user can dynamically control the positioning and size of the virtual lens 160, and the user can change noted in the area of ​​interest is dynamically updated contents of the virtual high-resolution lens 160 from the server 120. 在一些实施例中,用户也可以改变虚拟透镜显示的“倍率”(即,分辨率水平)。 In some embodiments, the user may change the "rate" shows the virtual lens (i.e., the horizontal resolution). 如果用户要求图像进一步放大,虚拟透镜可显示更高分辨率的图像(高达服务器所支持的最大分辨率),并且,如果用户请求其虚拟透镜缩小,较低分辨率的图像可在虚拟透镜上显示。 If the user requests further enlarged image, can display the virtual lens (up to the maximum resolution supported by the server) higher resolution images, and, if the user requests that the virtual lens narrow, lower resolution images may be displayed on the virtual lens .

[0053] 在另一个例子中,在线地图应用程序可以使用图像查看系统100针对感兴趣的领域,显示更多的细节或更详细的卫星图像,或两者兼而有之。 [0053] In another example, an application can use the online map image viewing system 100 for areas of interest, more details are shown in more detail, or satellite images, or both. 当用户要求地图时,服务器120可以发送基本分辨率地图到客户端设备,当用户需要一个更详细的视图时,虚拟透镜可以提供重叠在地图上的部分详细视图。 When the user requests a map, the server 120 may send a base resolution map to the client device, when the user needs a more detailed view, partially detailed view of a virtual lens may be superimposed on the map provided. 这样,仅在要时才下载其高分辨率的图像。 In this way, only download the high-resolution images only when you want. 在一些实施例中,作为进一步的优化,当用户只要求以高分辨率查看局部图像(例如,一个选定的感兴趣区域及周边区域),只有这部分图像从服务器经网络发送到客户端的设备。 In some embodiments, a further optimization, when a user requires only a local view high resolution images (e.g., a selected region of interest and the peripheral region), only this portion of the image transmitted from the server to the client via the network device . 这种技术特别在移动设备包括导航应用中非常有用,因为这些设备通常具有带宽和存储量的限制。 This technique is particularly useful in mobile device includes a navigation application, since these devices typically have limited bandwidth and storage.

[0054] 根据一个实施例,图像查看系统100可以被设置为使用三种不同的操作模式:连续下载方法、客户端降尺度方法、或服务器组合方法。 [0054] According to one embodiment, the image viewing system 100 may be set to three different modes of operation: continuous downloading method, the client downscaling method, a server, or a combination of methods. 有些实施例中,这些方法可以单独使用或组合使用。 In some embodiments, these methods may be used alone or in combination. 在另一个实施例中,图像查看系统100可以被设置为提供一个协作的方法,该方法可以将连续下载方法、客户端降尺度方法、或服务器组合方法的任何一种结合使用。 In another embodiment, the image viewing system 100 may be configured to provide a collaborative way, the method may be a continuous downloading method, the client scale down any method or combination of methods used in conjunction with the server.

[0055] 连续下载方法 [0055] The continuous download method

[0056] 图2和图3是连续的下载方法的流程图。 [0056] FIG. 2 and FIG. 3 is a flowchart of a method of continuous download. 根据一个实施例,该方法可以连同图像查看系统100—起使用。 According to one embodiment, the method may view the system 100 used together with the image. 图2示出连续下载方法的步骤。 Step 2 illustrates a continuous method for downloading FIG. 根据一个实施例,该方法可以在客户端设备110上进行。 According to one embodiment, the method may be performed on the client device 110. 图3示出由服务器120进行连续下载的方法步骤。 Figure 3 illustrates method steps performed by the server 120 continuously downloaded. [0057] 图2中的方法于客户端的设备110接收到一个查看图像的请求时(步骤210)开始。 (Step 210) begins when the method [0057] Figure 2 receives a request to view the image in the client device 110. 根据一个实施例,该请求可以包括用户使用应用程序访问文件或图像。 According to one embodiment, the request may include user application to access files or images. 在其它实施例中,该请求可以包括用户使用在客户端设备110上的查看器中运行的应用程序访问某特定的网页或其他内容。 In other embodiments, the request may include user applications on the client device 110 running in the viewer to access a particular page or other content. 在又一实施例中,该请求可以包括用户从客户端设备110上执行应用程序使用从服务器120上获取的高分辨率图像的内容。 In yet another embodiment, the request may include a user executing an application program on client device 110 uses the contents of the high resolution image 120 acquired from the server.

[0058] 如图2所示,客户端设备110向服务器120发送一个相应于所求图像的基本分辨率图像的请求(步骤220)。 [0058] As shown in FIG 2, the client device 110 sends a base-resolution image corresponding to the requested image, a request (step 220) to the server 120. 根据一个实施例,显示器模块配置在客户端设备110上。 According to one embodiment, the display module is disposed on the client device 110. 这样,显示器模块可以处理来自客户端设备110上应用程序中的图像请求,并经由网络130向服务器120发送此相应于所求图像的基本分辨率图像的请求。 Thus, the display module may request the image processing request from the client device 110 application, and send the base-resolution image corresponding to the image request to the server 130 via the network 120.

[0059] 客户端设备110确定是否从服务器120 (步骤225)接收到图像。 [0059] The client device 110 determines whether it has received from the server 120 (step 225) to the image. 根据一个实施例,如果一图像被限制访问,服务器120可以根椐其图像控制条例来判客户端设备的用户或客户端设备110 (或两者)是否有权查看此图像。 According to one embodiment, if the image is a restricted access server 120 which may be noted in the image control policy judgment to user client device 110 or client device (or both) is authorized to see the image. 根据一个实施例,由客户端设备110发送的请求可以包括与用户或客户端设备110相关联的识别信息,可用于决定服务器120是否应授予其对存储、生成、或输入到服务器120的图像的访问权限。 According to one embodiment, the request sent by the client device 110 may include a user or associated with the identification information of the client device 110, may be used to determine whether the server 120 should grant to store, generate, or input to the image server 120 access permission. 如果用户没有被授权访问所请求的图像,服务器120可以选择发送一条信息,以指示客户端设备110的用户或客户端设备110无权访问所请求的图像。 If the user is not authorized to access the requested image, the server 120 may choose to send a message to the user indicating the image the client device 110 or client device 110 does not have access to the requested. 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110还可以被设置来记录发送请求到服务器120后所经历的时间。 According to one embodiment, client device 110 may be further arranged to send a request to the recording time after the server 120 experienced. 如果基本分辨率图像没有在预定的时间内接收到的话,此请求超时作废。 If no resolution image so received within a predetermined period of time, the request timed invalid.

[0060] 如果没有接收到来自服务器120的图像,客户端设备110可以选择显示一个消息,向用户表明无法访问所请求的图像(步骤260)。 [0060] If the image is not received, the client device 110 from the server 120 can choose to display a message indicating that the image (step 260) can not access to the requested user. 根据一些实施方案,详细的错误信息可以描述为什么图像无法访问。 According to some embodiments, a detailed error message describing why the image can not be accessed. 例如,如果在一定时间内没有接收到响应,该信息可以表明该请求超时作废,或者表明该用户无权查看所请求的内容。 For example, if no response is received within a certain time, the information may indicate that the request timed out obsolete, or that the user is not authorized to view the requested content.

[0061] 如果客户端设备110接收到来自服务器120的图像,客户端设备110可以在其显示区域150中显示基本分辨率的图像(步骤230)。 [0061] If the client device 110 receives the image, the client device 110 from the server 120 may display a basic resolution image (step 230) in display area 150. 根据一个实施例,客户端设备的显示器可以被设置为根椐显示区域上的可用空间来调整客户端设备110上的基本分辨率的图像的大小。 According to one embodiment, the display of the client device may be set to be noted in the available space on the display area of ​​the image to adjust the size of the base resolution on the client device 110. 图4示出客户端设备上显示区域的一个例子。 FIG 4 shows an example of a display area on a client device. 例如,如果客户端设备110包括一个1200像素宽与800像素高的显示区域410,并且,如果60%的显示区域的宽度可用的来显示基本分辨率图像420,以及总高度减去其顶部的140像素和底部的120像素是可用的显示区域,客户端设备的显示器模块将在可用显示区域420上显示720像素宽与540像素高的基本分辨率图像。 For example, if a client device 110 includes 1200 pixels wide and 800 pixels high in the display area 410, and, if 60% of the width of the display area available to display 420 base resolution image, and subtracting the total height of the top 140 120 pixels and a bottom of the display area is available, the client device 420 displays on the display module 720 pixels wide and 540 pixels high resolution image in the available display area. 根据一个实施例,显示区域410可以包括客户端设备110上的台式显示屏幕或其它显示装置。 According to one embodiment, the display region 410 may include a desktop client device 110 on a display screen or other display device. 在一个实施例中,显示区域410可以包括一个应用程序的窗口,其中包括了应用程序信息,以及窗口控制和其他信息。 In one embodiment, the display region 410 may include a window of an application, including the application information, and a window control and other information. 例如,在一些实施例中,用户可以访问有如高分辨率图像或网页或包括查看器中的高分辨率图像在内的其他内容。 For example, in some embodiments, the user can access high-resolution image like a web page or other content or comprises a high resolution image, including the viewer. 图4中的实施例出示了显示区域415用于显示文本内容的一部分,从而减少了用于显示基本分辨率的图像可用空间。 Example of a portion of FIG. 4 show a display for displaying the text content region 415, thereby reducing the available space for displaying basic image resolution. 如果基本分辨率图像在应用程序窗口中显示,用于显示基本分辨率图像的可用空间也会受到影响。 If the base-resolution image is displayed in the application window, the available space for displaying the base-resolution image can also be affected. 其结果是,显示基本分辨率图像的显示区域420可以是小于客户端设备的显示区域的总量。 As a result, the base-resolution image display region 420 may be less than the total area of ​​the client display device. 从这些示例性实施例中可以看出,基本分辨率图像的分辨率至少可以部分地根据客户端设备110的分辨率和屏幕尺寸以及显示区域420上的可用面积来决定。 As can be seen from these exemplary embodiments, the resolution of the base resolution image may be at least in part, be determined according to the resolution and the screen size of the client device 110 and a display area 420 on the available area. [0062] 客户端设备110可以接收来自用户的请求,查看感兴趣区域的高分辨率的图像(步骤235)。 [0062] Client device 110 may receive a request from a user to view a high resolution image of a region of interest (step 235). 根据一个实施例,用户可以使用输入装置,如指点装置,包括鼠标、触摸屏、触摸板、操纵杆、轨迹球、箭头键、按钮、或其他输入设备,这样用户能在基本分辨率图像中选择感兴趣的区域,以高分辨率查看該局部图像。 According to one embodiment, a sense, a user may use an input device, such as a pointing device, including a mouse, a touch screen, touch pad, joystick, trackball, arrow keys, buttons, or other input device, so that the user can select the base resolution image area of ​​interest to view the high-resolution partial image.

[0063] 客户端设备可以将请求发送到服务器120,要求与基本分辨率图像对应的高分辨率图像(步骤240)。 [0063] The client device may send a request to the server 120, it requires high-resolution image corresponding to the base resolution image (step 240). 根据一个实施例,该请求可以包括所需的分辨率等级的高分辨率图像。 According to one embodiment, the request may include a high resolution image of the desired resolution level. 所需的分辨率的范围在图像的基本分辨率之上,可高达其存储、生成、或输入到服务器120的图像的最大分辨率。 Range resolution required over the base resolution image may be stored up, production, or the maximum resolution of the image input to the server 120.

[0064] 根据一些实施例,客户端设备110可以发送一个请求到服务器120,此请求可只包含用户所确定的感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像部分,而不是整个的高分辨率图像。 [0064] According to some embodiments, the client device 110 may send a request to the server 120, this request may comprise only a portion of the user defined high-resolution image region of interest, rather than the entire high resolution image. 在用户只希望以高分辨率查看基本分辨率图像中的一部分的情况下,或者在网络传输完整的图像将会对响应时间造成不利的影响的情况下,或者在客户端的内存量不足以存储完整的高分辨率图像的情况下,另一种请求可以是只要求使用部分的高分辨率图像。 In the case of users only want to view the high resolution when part of the base-resolution image, or would adversely affect the response time of the complete network transmission of images, or the amount of memory to store the full client is not sufficient in the case of high-resolution image, another request may only require the use of a high resolution image portion. 根据一个实施例,该请求可以包括一组对应于感兴趣区域在基本分辨率的图像上的参考点。 According to one embodiment, the request may include a set of regions of interest corresponding to a reference point on the base resolution image. 例如,在一些实施例中,客户端设备110被设置为使用户可以在基本分辨率的图像上绘制的矩形,以标示用户希望看到此感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像。 For example, in some embodiments, client device 110 is arranged to enable a user can draw a rectangle on a base resolution image to indicate the user wishes to view a high resolution image of this area of ​​interest. 在请求服务器120发送高分辨率的图像时可提供其矩形的左上角部和右下角部、或左上角部和中心点的宽度和高度。 When the server 120 transmits the high-resolution image request may provide the upper left corner and its lower right corner of the rectangular portion, or the width and height of the upper left corner and the center point. 根据一个实施例,显示器模块可以被设置为转换基本分辨率的图像屏幕坐标为像素坐标,并在请求服务器发送高分辨率图像时可以包括用户指定的感兴趣区域的像素坐标。 According to one embodiment, the display module may be configured to convert a base resolution image pixel coordinates to screen coordinates, and, when the server sends a request may include a high-resolution image pixel coordinates of the user specified region of interest. 根据另一个实施例,客户端设备110可以提供一个用户界面,用户为了收到在光标指示的区域中,或由形状所覆盖的对应于基本分辨率图像中感兴趣区域的一个高分辨率的图像,可以在其位置上的拖动或移动光标或形状,如矩形或椭圆形等。 According to another embodiment, the client device 110 may provide a user interface, the user to receive the area indicated by the cursor, or covered by the shape of the region of interest in the image corresponding to the base-resolution image in a high resolution , or you can drag or move the cursor position on the shape, such as rectangular or oval and the like.

[0065] 客户端设备110确定是否接收到来自服务器120的高分辨率的图像(步骤245)。 [0065] The client device 110 determines whether the high-resolution image from the server 120 (step 245) is received. 如果未接收到来自服务器120的图像,客户端设备110可以选择显示一条消息向用户表明无法访问所请求的图像。 If the image is not received, the client device 110 from the server 120 can choose to display a message that the requested image is inaccessible to the user. 否则,如果客户端设备110能接收到所请求的对应于感兴趣的区域的高分辨率的图像,客户端设备110可以在虚拟透镜160中显示对应于感兴趣的区域中的部分的高分辨率的图像(步骤255)。 Otherwise, if the client device 110 can request the high resolution region corresponding to the received image of interest, the client device 110 may display a high resolution corresponding to the region of interest in the virtual lens portion 160 image (step 255). 虚拟透镜置可以位于基本分辨率图像中感兴趣的区域上,并可以被设置为显示由用户确定的对应于感兴趣的区域部分的高分辨率图像。 Virtual lens may be positioned on opposing base resolution image region of interest, and can be provided high-resolution image corresponding to the region of interest portion of the display is determined by the user. 根据一个实施例,虚拟透镜160可以设置回归到初始的大小和形状。 According to one embodiment, the virtual lens 160 may be set back to the original size and shape. 在一个实施例中,虚拟透镜的大小可以与客户端设备110上显示的基本分辨率图像的大小成比例。 Substantially proportional to the size of the image resolution in one embodiment, the virtual size of the lens can be displayed on the client device 110. 例如,在一个实施例中,虚拟透镜的大小的可能会是基本分辨率图像的大小的四分之一。 For example, in one embodiment, the virtual size of the lens may be a quarter the size of the base resolution image. 例如,如果基本分辨率图像的大小是720像素宽、540像素高,虚拟透镜的大小则是360像素宽、270像素高。 For example, if the size of the base resolution of the image is 720 pixels wide, 540 pixels high, the size of the virtual lens is 360 pixels wide by 270 pixels high.

[0066] 根据一个实施例中,客户端设备110的显示器模块可确定对应于用户选择的感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像的部分,并在虚拟透镜160上显示相应的高分辨率图像部分,以高分辨率的图像取代相应感兴趣区域中的基本分辨率图像的部分。 [0066] embodiment, the client device display module 110 may determine that the high resolution image portion corresponding to the user selected region of interest in accordance with one embodiment, and displays the corresponding high-resolution image in the virtual lens portion 160 to substituted resolution image resolution image portion substantially corresponding to the region of interest. 根据一个实施例,如果用户选择了水平和垂直坐标[180,270]相对于基本分辨率图的左上部为显示更高分辨率图像的中心的区域,虚拟透镜可以被定置在基本分辨率图中坐标[180,270]的中心。 According to one embodiment, if the user selects the horizontal and vertical coordinates [180, 270] with respect to the upper left portion of FIG resolution substantially the center of the display area of ​​the higher resolution image, the virtual lens may be disposed in the base-resolution set in FIG. [180, 270] of the center coordinates. 如果的高分辨率的图像的分辨率为1080像素宽乘以810像素高,要显示的高分辨率图像部分(例如,虚拟透镜的大小)将是360像素宽乘以270像素高,以及要显示高分辨率图像的区域中心点将是[270,405],而所对应的基本分辨率图像中心点为[180,270](横跨四分之一和直下一半)。 If the resolution of the image of a high resolution of 1080 pixels wide by 810 pixels high resolution image (e.g., the size of the virtual lens) to be displayed will be 360 ​​pixels wide by 270 pixels high, and to show regional high-resolution image is a center point [270,405], and the center point of the base-resolution image corresponding to the [180, 270] (a quarter and a direct across half). 根据一些实施例,虚拟透镜160的边框可以呈现,以在基本分辨率图像显示区域150中划分出虚拟透镜160。 According to some embodiments, the virtual lens frame 160 may be presented to the display area 150 divided into virtual resolution image lens 160. 应该指出的是一个比基本分辨率图像上虚拟透镜所覆盖的区域小的的高分辨率图像也可以显示在虚拟透镜上。 It should be noted that a substantially smaller than the area covered by the virtual lens resolution image of a high resolution image can be displayed on the virtual lens. 在这个例子中,在一个360x270虚拟透镜中,约11%的高分辨率图像可以在虚拟透镜((360x270)/(1080x810))中显示。 In this example, a 360x270 virtual lens, about 11% high-resolution image can be (/ (1080x810) (360x270)) displayed in the virtual lens. 虚拟透镜将覆盖约25%的基本分辨率图像((360x270) / (720x540),不包括边界)。 Virtual lens will cover about 25% of the base resolution image ((360x270) / (720x540), not inclusive). 这种移动高分辨率图像虚拟透镜的能力使基本分辨率图像的所有部分都能以高分辨率来查看。 This ability to move high-resolution image of the virtual lens of the base-resolution image all parts can be viewed at high resolution.

[0067] 根据一个实施例,为了改善响应时间,高分辨率的图像可以在用户请求查看虚拟透镜160中高分辨率图像部分之前从服务器120下载。 [0067] According to one embodiment, in order to improve response time, high-resolution images can be downloaded from the server 120 until a user request to view high-resolution image 160 virtual lens portion. 在这样一个实施例中,该部分的高分辨率图像用户请求此图像时才在虚拟透镜160上显示。 In such an embodiment, the high-resolution image of the portion of the user request if this image is displayed on the virtual lens 160. 根据一个实施例,这种预取高分辨率图像可以通过一些用户操作而发起,并触发客户端设备110发送一个请求到服务器120。 According to one embodiment, the prefetch can be initiated by a high-resolution image number of a user operation, and trigger the client device 110 sends a request to the server 120. 例如,在一些实施例中,下载高分辨率图像可以在从服务器120要求基本分辨率图像的同时间,或在从服务器上接收基本分辨率图像稍后不久进行。 For example, in some embodiments, high-resolution images can be downloaded at the same time requires the server 120 from the base resolution image, or base resolution image received from the server at a later time shortly. 或者,客户端设备110可以被设置为响应用户按压软或硬键(例如,“图像观看系统激活”按钮),或通过点击指点设备按钮启动下载高分辨率图像。 Alternatively, the client device 110 may be provided in response to the user pressing a soft or hard key (e.g., "image viewing system activation" button), or download the high resolution image by clicking the start pointing device button. 继续此预先加载技术,在每个高分辨率图像下载完成时可以请求下载一个更高分辨率的图像,可如此进行下去,直到达到最大分辨率。 Continue this pre-loaded technology, download a higher-resolution image can be requested at the time of each high resolution image download is complete, so proceed until the maximum resolution.

[0068] 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110可以被设置为允许用户移动显示区域150中重叠在基本分辨率图像上的虚拟透镜160。 [0068] According to one embodiment, client device 110 may be provided to allow a user to move the display area 150 superimposed on the base-resolution image 160 of the virtual lens. 在一个实施例中,客户端设备110被设置为使得用户可以通过使用指点设备,如鼠标、触摸板、触摸屏、操纵杆、轨迹球、箭头键、或按钮来移动虚拟透镜。 In one embodiment, the client device 110 is set such that the user can use a pointing device, such as a mouse, touchpad, touchscreen, joystick, trackball, arrow key, or button to move the virtual lens. 在一个实施例中,客户端设备110的显示器模块被设置为实时改变,即当用户移动光标横跨基本分辨率图像,选定感兴趣区域将虚拟透镜重叠在其位置的上,对应于以移动光标位置改变而改变的感兴趣区域以高分辨率显示在虚拟透镜中。 In one embodiment, the client device display module 110 is set to change in real time, i.e. when the user moves the cursor across the base-resolution image, the selected regions of interest in the virtual lens superimposed on its position, to move the corresponding changing the position of the cursor is changed to a high resolution display a region of interest in the virtual lens. 根据一个实施例中,考虑显示器内基本分辨率图像相对参考点的光标位置,例如图像的左上角,以确定虚拟透镜160的高分辨率的图像位置。 According to one embodiment, it is contemplated within the display resolution image relative to a reference point of the cursor position, for example, the upper left corner of the image, to determine a high resolution virtual image position of the lens 160. 在一个实施例中,显示器模块还可以考虑用户是否在客户端设备显示器上卷动翻页显示,并调整水平或垂直卷动量(或两者)。 In one embodiment, the display module may also consider whether the user on the client device display scrolling display page, and adjust the horizontal or vertical roll momentum (or both). 如果已从服务器120上请求的不是完整的高分辨率的图像,或如果光标移动到一个位置,需要更多的高分辨率图像填补虚拟透镜160,客户端设备110可以发请求到服务器120要求额外的高分辨率图像以显示在虚拟透镜160上。 If it is not a complete high-resolution image on a request from the server 120, or if the cursor is moved to a position to fill the high-resolution image requires more virtual lens 160, the client device 110 may send a request to the server requires additional 120 high-resolution image to be displayed on the virtual lens 160.

[0069] 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110的显示器模块可以被设置为允许用户请求改变显示在虚拟透镜160中的高分辨率图像的分辨率水平。 [0069] According to one embodiment, the client device display module 110 may be provided to allow a user to request a change in the horizontal resolution of the display of high-resolution image in the virtual lens 160. 根据一个实施例,显示器模块可以被设置为提供用户界面控件,如软按钮、滑块、指针的移动设备的控制,或其他类型的接口组件,这样用户可以通过互动以选择所希望的分辨率水平的高分辨率图像在虚拟透镜160中显示。 According to one embodiment, the display module may be arranged to provide user interface controls, such as soft control buttons, sliders, movement of the pointer device, or other type of interface components, so that the user can interact to select the desired resolution level the high-resolution image is displayed in the virtual lens 160. 在一个实施例中,用户可以选择一定级别的分辨率的图像在虚拟透镜160中显示,其分辨率级别可高达存储、生成、或输入到服务器120的图像的最大分辨率级别。 In one embodiment, the user may select a level of image resolution is displayed in the virtual lens 160, a resolution level which can store up to generate, or to the maximum input level of resolution of the image server 120. 在一个实施例中,用户可以选择一个分辨率等级大于基本分辨率并且可高达图像的最大分辨率。 In one embodiment, the user may select a resolution level may be greater than the base resolution and up to a maximum resolution of the image.

[0070] 为响应改变虚拟透镜160所显示的图像部分的分辨率的请求,显示器模块可以被设置为发出一个请求到服务器120,要求其传送对应于基本分辨率图像以及所选择的分辨率水平的全部或部分高分辨率图像。 [0070] In response to a request to change the resolution of the image portion displayed by the virtual lens 160, a display module may be arranged to issue a request to the server 120, corresponding to the base required to transmit the image resolution and the resolution level of the selected all or part of the high-resolution image. 其请求的图像部分可以与显示在虚拟透镜160上的图像大小相同或更大。 An image portion which the display request may be the same or larger size on the virtual image 160 of the lens. 一旦服务器120通过网络130发送高分辨率图像到客户端设备110,显示器模块就可在虚拟透镜160中显示对应于感兴趣区域部分的高分辨率图像。 Once the high-resolution image transmission server 120 via the network 130 to the client device 110, the display module can display the portion corresponding to the region of interest of the high-resolution image in the virtual lens 160. 当用户请求增加目前正显示在虚拟透镜160上图像的分辨率时,一个小于目前显示在虚拟透镜160上图像的高分辨率图像以所要求的分辨率,将显示在虚拟透镜160上。 When a user requests to increase resolution of the image currently being displayed in the virtual lens 160, is smaller than a currently displayed virtual image of a high resolution lens 160 at the required resolution will be displayed on the virtual lens 160. 当用户请求减少目前正显示在虚拟透镜160上图像的分辨率时,一个大于目前显示在虚拟透镜160上图像的高分辨率图像以所要求的分辨率,将显示在虚拟透镜160上。 When a user requests to reduce the resolution of the image currently being displayed in the virtual lens 160, is greater than a currently displayed virtual image of a high resolution lens 160 at the required resolution will be displayed on the virtual lens 160. 根据一个实施例,对应每个存储在存储器中的基本分辨率图像,服务器120可以有多个不同分辨率的图像,每个图像的分辨率大于或等于在服务器120中生成的、输入到或存储的图像的分辨率。 According to one embodiment, the base resolution image corresponding to each stored in a memory, the server 120 may have a plurality of images with different resolutions, the resolution of each image is greater than or equal to 120 generated in the server, or stored is input to the the resolution of the image. 服务器120可以在存储器中存储最大分辨率的图像,并根据客户端的请求产生高分辨率的图像(低于最大分辨率)。 Maximum resolution server 120 may store the image in a memory, and produces image of high resolution (less than the maximum resolution) at the request of the client. 根据一个实施例,用户可以随时改变虚拟透镜160所显示的图像的分辨率。 According to one embodiment, the user can change the resolution of the image displayed by the virtual lens 160 at any time.

[0071] 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110的显示器也可以被设置为允许用户更改虚拟透镜160尺寸以及虚拟透镜160所显示的图像的分辨率的大小。 [0071] According to one embodiment, the display of the client device 110 may also be provided to allow a user to change the size of the virtual lens size and resolution 160 of the image displayed by the virtual lens 160. 根据一个实施例,显示器可以提供包括软按钮(按钮或其它界面组件用在客户端设备显示器上绘制,并用指针移动设备进行选择)、硬按钮(键盘或其它按钮或开关)、或指针移动设备的控制(如,左或右鼠标键点击、鼠标向上或向下键、卷轮控制、轨迹球控制、触摸式控制、或其他指针设备控制)。 According to one embodiment, the display may be provided a mobile device comprising a soft button (button or other interface components used on the client device display rendering, and selecting movement of the pointer device), hard buttons (keyboard or other buttons or switches), or a pointer control (e.g., left or right mouse button click, mouse button up or down, the volume control wheel, trackball, touch-control, control or other pointing device). 根据一个实施例,显示器也可以被设置成提供控制,使得用户能够固定虚拟透镜在当前的位置(即,停止跟踪指向装置运动)、冻结虚拟透镜或解冻虚拟透镜(恢复跟踪指点设备的运动)。 According to one embodiment, the display may also be arranged to provide control so that the user can be fixed to the virtual lens at the current location (i.e. stops tracking the pointing device movement), to freeze the virtual lens or unfreeze the virtual lens (resume tracking the pointing device movement). 根据一个实施例,显示器也可以被设置成提供控制,使用户可关闭虚拟透镜显示,使得完整基本分辨率的图像显示不再有高分辨率图像重叠,或使用户可重新打开虚拟透镜显示。 According to one embodiment, the image display may also be arranged to provide control so that the user can turn off the display the virtual lens, such that substantially full-resolution high-resolution image showed no overlap, or to reopen the user can display the virtual lens. 有些控件可以执行多种功能,如同时改变虚拟透镜的大小和由虚拟透镜160显示的图像的分辨率。 Some controls may perform a variety of functions, such as the virtual lens while changing the resolution and size of the virtual image displayed by the lens 160.

[0072] 图3所示的方法是服务器120,对应于在图2中由客户端设备110所执行的步骤而所采取的步骤。 The method shown in [0072] FIG. 3 is a server 120, in step 2 by the step of FIG client device 110 and executed by corresponding to the taken. 服务器120接收到来自客户端设备110要求发送基本分辨率图像的请求(步骤310)。 Server 120 receives requests from the client device 110 sends a request base resolution image (step 310). 如果访问是受限制的,服务器120可以根椐访问控制条例检查用户或客户端设备110是否有对所请求的图像的访问权限(步骤320)。 If the access is restricted, per the access server 120 may control the user checks whether or Ordinance client device 110 has access to the requested image (step 320). 根据一个实施例,当某图像有访问限制时,由客户端设备110发送的请求可以包括与用户或客户端设备110相关联的识别信息,可用于决定服务器120是否应授予用户或客户端设备110对其存储、产生、或输入到服务器120的图像内容的访问权限。 According to one embodiment, when an image with limited access, the request sent by the client device 110 may include a user or identification information of the client device 110 is associated, it can be used to determine whether the server 120 should be granted to the user or client device 110 its storage, generating, or image content server 120 is input to the access rights.

[0073] 服务器120确定用户或客户端设备110 (或两者)是否有访问请求的图像的权限(步骤325)。 [0073] The server 120 determines that the user or client device 110 (or both) has permission to access the requested image (step 325). 如果用户或客户端设备110不具有访问所请求的图像的权限,服务器120可以被设置为向客户端设备110发送信息指示客户端设备的用户或客户端设备110不具有访问所请求的内容的权限(步骤360)。 Permissions If the user or client device 110 does not have the image access is requested, the server 120 may be configured to send information indicative of the client device user or client device to client device 110, 110 does not have access to content of the requested permissions (step 360). 否则,如果用户具有访问所请求的图像的权限,服务器120将从所存储的高分辨率图像上生成一基本分辨率图像(步骤330),这个高分辨率图像的分辨率大于或等于其存储、产生、或输入到服务器120的,与之相对应的基本分辨率图像的分辨率。 Otherwise, if the user has permission to access the requested image, and generates a base-resolution image (step 330) from the high-resolution image 120 stored in the server, the resolution of the image is greater than or equal to the high resolution store, generating, or enter, the resolution corresponding thereto substantially resolution image server 120. 根据一些实施例,基本分辨率图像可能已经从特定的高分辨率图像中生成。 According to some embodiments, base resolution image may have been generated from a specific high-resolution image. 在一个实施例中,服务器可以被设置来为每一个上传、输入到或产生在服务器120上的高分辨率图像产生相对应的基本分辨率图像。 In one embodiment, the server may be arranged to upload for each input or generated high-resolution image is generated on the server 120 corresponding to the base resolution image. 在一些实施例中,基本分辨率图像的分辨率级别可以基于显示基本分辨率图像的客户端设备的属性而设置,并用于显示基本分辨率的图像。 In some embodiments, the resolution level of the base-resolution image can be displayed on the client device properties substantially resolution image is provided, and a base resolution image for display. 例如,服务器120可以被设置为产生较低分辨率的图像,用在通常有更小尺寸显示的移动装置,诸如移动电话。 For example, the server 120 may be configured to generate a lower resolution image, there are usually used in the mobile apparatus of smaller size displays, such as a mobile phone. 服务器120也可以被设置为生成一个分辨率相应高一些的基本分辨率图像,用在显示屏较大和分辨率较高的笔记本电脑或台式电脑系统。 Server 120 may also be configured to generate a resolution corresponding substantially higher resolution image, with larger and higher resolution display screen of a laptop or desktop computer system. 然后,服务器120可以经由网络130向客户端设备120发送其基本分辨率的图像(步骤335)。 Then, the server 120 may transmit the basic image resolution (step 335) to the client device 120 via network 130.

[0074] 服务器120可以从客户端设备110接收请求,要求一完整的高分辨率图像,或对应于图像中感兴趣区域(步骤340)的局部高分辨率图像。 [0074] The server 120 may receive a request from the client device 110 requires a full resolution image, or a high-resolution image corresponding to a partial region of interest (step 340) in the image. 所请求的部分图像可能与在虚拟透镜160上显示的大小相同或者更大。 The requested image portion may be the same size or greater displayed on the virtual lens 160. 如果访问是受到限制的,可以再次根椐访问控制条例确定用户或客户端设备110 (或两者)是否有访问权限(步骤345)。 If the access is limited, the access control can be noted in again determines that the user or client device 110 (or both) has access regulation if (step 345). 如果用户或客户端设备110不具有访问所请求的图像的权限,服务器120可以被设置为向客户端设备110发送信息表示客户端设备的用户或客户端设备110不具有对此内容的访问权限(步骤360)。 If a user authority or the client device 110 does not have access to the requested image, the server 120 may be configured to send information to the client device 110 indicates that the user or client device of the client device 110 does not have access to this content ( step 360). 否则,服务器120可以生成或从存储器中检索出完整的高分辨率的图像,或对应于感兴趣区域的局部高分辨率的图像(步骤350)。 Otherwise, 120 can generate or retrieve the full resolution image from the memory, or a local area of ​​interest corresponding to the high-resolution image server (step 350). 此高分辨率图像的分辨率等于或小于其在服务器120上存储的、产生的、或输入的高分辨率图像的最大分辨率,但大于在步骤335中提供给客户端的基本分辨率图像的分辨率。 This high-resolution image resolution of less than or equal to its stored on the server 120, generated, or the maximum resolution of the input high-resolution image, but greater than provided to the client in step 335 the base-resolution image resolution rate. 服务器120可以经由网络130传送在步骤350中生成的高分辨率图像到客户端设备110 (步骤355)。 Server 120 via the network 130 may transmit in step 350 the generated high-resolution image to the client device 110 (step 355). 根据一些实施例,从客户端设备110接收到请求,该请求可以指定其用于在步骤350中生成的高分辨率图像的分辨率水平。 According to some embodiments, receiving device 110 from the client request, the request may specify the level of resolution for the high-resolution image generated in step 350. 例如,在客户端设备110上请求高分辨率图像的应用程序执行中可以包括用户接口,该接口包括一个“缩放”的工具,使用户能选择其高分辨率的图像分辨率级别以显示在虚拟透镜160上。 For example, an application requesting high resolution images on the client device 110 may include a user interface implementation, the interface includes a "Zoom" tool, which allows the user to select the high-resolution image to be displayed in a virtual resolution level the lens 160. 在一些实施例中,服务器120可以缓存其响应客户端请求而生成的高分辨率图像,以便在未来再次接收到在该分辨率等级的该图像的请求时,服务器120不用再次生产此高分辨率图像。 In some embodiments, the server 120 may cache their high-resolution image generated in response to client requests, for receiving requests again in the future when the resolution level of the image, the server 120 again without the production of this high-resolution image.

[0075] 根据一些实施方案,各种优化方案可以用在连续下载方法上。 [0075] According to some embodiments, various optimization programs can be used on a continuous download method. 例如,在一些实施例中,多种分辨率的图像可以预装在客户端设备上以预期用户会请求查看这些图像。 For example, in some embodiments, multiple resolution images can be pre-installed on the client device a request to the intended user may view these images. 在另一实施例,客户端已下载的各种不同分辨率的图像可以被缓存在存储器中。 Images of different resolutions In another embodiment, the client may be downloaded in a memory cache. 根据另一个实施例,客户端设备110可以被设置为请求仅部分的或包含其部分的区域的高分辨率图像显示在虚拟透镜上,同时服务器120可以被设置成仅发送部分的或包含其部分的区域的高分辨率图像,而不是整个的高分辨率图像。 According to another embodiment, the client device 110 may be arranged to request only the high-resolution image or a part thereof comprising the region of the displayed portion of the virtual lens, while the server 120 may be configured to transmit only the portion or portions thereof comprising High resolution image of a region, rather than the entire high-resolution images. 在一个示例中,如果发送整个的高分辨率图像的时间太长,或者如果用户只希望查看高解析度的图像的一个下属部分,可以使用这种方法。 In one example, if the transmission time of the entire high resolution image is too long, or if the user wishes to view just a part of the image under high-resolution, this method can be used.

[0076] 在一些实施例中,基本分辨率图像的分辨率级别可根椐显示图像的客户端设备的属性,带宽以及网络130在连接客户端设备110和服务器120时的延迟特性而决定。 [0076] In some embodiments, the resolution level of the base resolution image may be noted in an image display device of the client attributes, network bandwidth and delay characteristic 130 determined at 120 connected client device 110 and server. 例如,服务器120可以被设置为产生基本分辨率图像,其具有较低的分辨率而用于移动装置,诸如通常显示屏较小的移动电话,而服务器120可以被设置为产生基本分辨率图像,其具有同等高的分辨率而用于具有较大的显示面积和较高分辨率的笔记本电脑或台式电脑系统。 For example, the server 120 may be configured to generate a base-resolution image, which has a lower resolution for a mobile device, such as a mobile phone typically small display screen, and the server 120 may be configured to generate a base-resolution image, which has the same high resolution display having a large area for a higher resolution and a laptop or desktop computer system. 在一个实施例中,其对应于基本分辨率图像的高分辨率图像的分辨率等级也可以根椐客户端设备110,服务器120和网络130的属性而进行调整。 In one embodiment, which corresponds to a resolution level resolution image high resolution image may be substantially noted in the client device 110, server 120, and the properties of the network 130 be adjusted.

[0077] 客户端降尺度方法 [0077] The client downscaling method

[0078] 图5和图6是客户端降尺度方法的流程图,该方法可以与一个实施例中所述的图像查看系统100 —起使用。 [0078] FIG. 5 and FIG. 6 is a flowchart of a method of client drop scale, the method may be described in the image viewing system 100 with one embodiment - from use. 图5示出的方法步骤可以在客户端设备110执行。 Figure 5 illustrates method steps may be performed at the client device 110. 图6示出的方法步骤可以由服务器120执行。 Figure 6 shows the method steps may be performed by the server 120.

[0079] 图5中的方法开始于当客户端设备110接收到请求要在客户端设备上查看图像时(步骤510)。 Method [0079] FIG. 5 begins when the client device 110 receives a request to view an image on the client device (step 510). 客户端设备110发送请求到服务器120,要求顶级分辨率的图像(步骤520),其分辨率小于或等于在服务器120上生成、输入或存储的该图像的最大分辨率。 The client device 110 sends a request to the server 120, it requires a top-resolution image (step 520), less than or equal to the resolution generated on the server 120, the maximum resolution of the input image or stored. 根据一个实施例,配置在客户端设备110上的显示器模块可以被设置来处理来自客户端设备110中应用程序的图像请求,并通过网络130发送一个请求到服务器120,要求其对应于最初所要求的图像的顶级分辨率图像。 A display module according to one embodiment, the configuration on the client device 110 may be provided to process the image request from the client 110. The application client device and a request to the server 120 by sending network 130 is required which corresponds to the originally requested top image resolution of the image.

[0080] 客户端设备110确定是否从服务器120接收到顶级高分辨率图像(步骤525)。 [0080] The client device 110 determines whether received from the server 120 to the top high-resolution image (step 525). 根据一个实施例,如果访问图像是受到限制的,服务器120可以根椐访问控制条例判定用户或客户端设备110 (或两者)的用户是否有权查看此图像内容。 According to one embodiment, if the image is limited access, the server 120 may be noted in the access control policy or the user determines whether the user client device 110 (or both) is authorized to view the image content. 根据一个实施例,由客户端设备110发送的请求可以包括与用户或客户端设备110相关联的识别信息,以此服务器120可决定是否应授予用户或客户端设备110对存储、生成、或输入到服务器120的图像内容的访问权限。 According to one embodiment, the request sent by the client device 110 may include identification information of the user or the client device 110 associated with server 120 may thus decide whether to give a user or client device 110 to the storage, generating, or input to the image content server 120 access. 如果用户或客户端设备110无权访问所请求的图像,服务器120可以选择发送一条信息,表示用户或客户端设备110无权访问所请求的图像。 If the user 110 does not have access requested by the client device or an image, the server 120 may choose to send a message, an image representing the user or client device 110 is authorized to access requested. 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110也可以被设置为记录其发送请求到服务器120后所经历的时间,并且如果在预定量的时间内还没有收到顶级分辨率图像的话,指示该请求超时。 According to one embodiment, client device 110 may also be provided to record the time after sending a request to the server 120 experienced, and if the top-resolution images have not received within a predetermined amount of time, indicating that the request timed out.

[0081] 如果没有接收到来自服务器120的图像,客户端设备110可以选择显示一条信息,向用户表明无法访问所请求的图像(步骤560)。 [0081] If the image is not received, the client device 110 from the server 120 can choose to display a message indicating that the image (step 560) can not access to the requested user. 根据一些实施例,详细的错误信息,如描述为什么图像无法访问。 According to some embodiments, a detailed error message, as described why the image can not be accessed. 例如,该信息可在预定的时间内没有接收到响应时指示该请求超时,或者指示该用户无权查看所请求的内容。 It indicates that the request timed out, indicating that the user or not authorized to view the requested content for example, the information may not receive a response within a predetermined time.

[0082] 如果接收到来自服务器120的图像,客户端设备110可以从其接收的顶级分辨率图像上产生一个基本分辨率图像(步骤530)。 [0082] If the image is received, the client device 110 from the server 120 may generate a base-resolution image (step 530) from the top-resolution image received. 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110上的显示器可以被设置为在收到来自服务器120的图像时缩减其顶级分辨率图像。 According to one embodiment, a display on the client device 110 may be set to reduce its top-resolution image when the image is received from the server 120. 根据一个实施例,显示器可以被设置为根椐可用的显示空间缩减其顶级分辨率图像。 According to one embodiment, the display may be set as noted in the reduced space available to display its top resolution image.

[0083] 根据一些实施例,基本分辨率图像可能早已经由客户端设备110从先前在服务器120接收到的某特定顶级分辨率图像中产生。 [0083] According to some embodiments, base resolution image may already be generated from a particular server in the previously top-resolution image 120 received via the client device 110. 在一些实施例中,顶级分辨率图像的分辨率级别可根椐显示图像的客户端设备的属性,和/或带宽以及网络130在连接客户端设备110和服务器120时的延迟特性而设置。 In some embodiments, the top level of resolution resolution image display can be noted in the properties of the image the client device, and / or network bandwidth and delay characteristics 130 is provided at 120 connected client device 110 and server. 例如,服务器120可以被设置为产生顶级分辨率图像,其具有较低分辨率的图像可用于移动装置,诸如通常显示屏较小的移动电话。 For example, the server 120 may be configured to generate top-resolution image, the mobile device having a lower resolution image can be used, such as a mobile phone typically small display screen. 而服务器120也可以被设置为产生顶级分辨率图像,其具有较高分辨率的图像可用于具有较大的显示面积和较高分辨率的笔记本电脑或台式电脑系统。 And the server 120 may also be configured to generate a top-resolution image having a higher resolution image which can be used in notebook or desktop computer system having a large display area and a higher resolution.

[0084] 客户端设备110可在其显示区域150中显示基本分辨率图像(步骤533)。 [0084] The client device 110 may display the base-resolution image (step 533) in display area 150. 根据一个实施例,客户端设备的显示器可以被设置为根椐其显示区域上显示基本分辨率图像的可用空间来调整基本分辨率图像的大小。 The display according to one embodiment, the client device may be provided as noted in the free space in its base-resolution image to adjust the size of the base resolution of the image display region. 然后,客户端设备110可以接收来自用户的请求,以查看感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像(步骤535)。 Then, client device 110 may receive a request from a user to view high-resolution image (step 535) a region of interest. 根据一个实施例,用户可以使用输入装置,如指点装置,包括鼠标、触摸板、触摸屏、操纵杆、跟踪球、箭头键、按钮或其他输入设备,使用户能在基本分辨率图像中选择一个感兴趣的区域,以查看其高分辨率的图像。 According to one embodiment, a user may use an input device, such as a pointing device, including a mouse, a touchpad, a touch screen, joystick, trackball, arrow keys, buttons or other input device, allows users to select a base resolution image sense area of ​​interest to view the high-resolution images. 根据一个实施例,客户端设备110可以提供一个用户界面,用户可以在其中拖动或移动光标或形状,如矩形或椭圆形,到基本分辨率图像中感兴趣区域的位置上。 According to one embodiment, the client device 110 may provide a user interface, where the user can drag or move the cursor or shapes, such as rectangular or oval, the position of the base-resolution image in the region of interest.

[0085] 然后客户端设备100可以生成对应用户确定的感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像(步骤540)。 [0085] The client device 100 may generate corresponding regions of interest of the high-resolution image determined by the user (step 540). 在从服务器120接收到的顶级分辨率的图像上,客户端设备可以产生高分辨率的图像。 On the top-resolution image received from the server 120, the client device may generate a high resolution image. 根据一个实施例,当用户请求以高分辨率查看在感兴趣区域中的图像时(其分辨率高于基本分辨率),客户端设备110可以缩减顶级分辨率图像为高分辨率图像,其分辨率高于基本分辨率(例如,1080x810对比基本分辨率720x540),并在虚拟透镜160上显示对应于用户选择的感兴趣区域的高分辨率图像的一部分(步骤555)。 According to one embodiment, when the user requests to view a high resolution image region of interest (which is substantially higher resolution than the resolution), the client device 110 can be reduced top-resolution image is a high resolution image, its resolution substantially higher than the resolution (e.g., 1080x810 resolution contrast basic 720x540), and a display portion (step 555) the high resolution image corresponding to the user selected region of interest in the virtual lens 160. 虚拟透镜160重叠在基本分辨率图像中的感兴趣区域上。 Virtual lens 160 substantially overlap in a region of interest in the resolution of the image. 根据一个实施例,如果用户请求一个更高分辨率的图像,显示器可产生另一高于前一个高分辨率图像分辨率的高分辨率图像,此分辨率可高达和包括从服务器120上接收的顶级分辨率图像的分辨率,并在虚拟透镜160上显示此对应于用户所选的感兴趣区域中的部分高分辨率图像。 According to one embodiment, if the user requests a higher resolution image, the display may be generated high-resolution image other than the previous high-resolution image resolution and this resolution can comprise up to 120 received from the server resolution top-resolution image, and this high-resolution image display section corresponding to the user selected region of interest in the virtual lens 160. 虚拟透镜160可再次重叠在基本分辨率图像中感兴趣区域上。 Lens 160 may overlap the virtual base resolution image again on the area of ​​interest. 另外,在一些实施例中,显示器模块可以被设置为提供一个用户界面,使用户能请求改变虚拟透镜的大小,以及在虚拟透镜160上所显示的图像的分辨率。 Further, in some embodiments, the display module may be arranged to provide a user interface that enables the user to request to change the size of the virtual lens, and resolution of an image in the virtual lens 160 shown.

[0086] 图6所示的方法展示了由服务器120执行的步骤,其对应于图5中所展示的由客户端设备110所执行的步骤。 The method shown in [0086] FIG. 6 shows the steps performed by the server 120, which corresponds to a step executed by the client device 110 in FIG. 5 is shown. 服务器120接收到客户端设备110要求顶级分辨率图像的请求(步骤610)。 Server 120 receives the client device 110 requests a top-resolution image is required (step 610). 如果图像是限制访问的,服务器120可以根椐访问控制条例检查用户或客户端设备110是否且有对所请求的图像的访问权限(步骤620)。 If the image is to restrict access, the server 120 may be noted in the access control policy or the user checks whether the client device 110 and the access right to the requested image (step 620). 根据一个实施例,由客户端设备110发送的请求可以包括与用户或客户端设备110相关联的识别信息,其可用于决定是否授予用户或客户端设备110对其存储、生成、或输入到服务器120的图像内容的访问权限。 According to one embodiment, the request sent by the client device 110 may include identification information of the user or the client device 110 associated with that user can be used to decide whether to grant the client device 110 or its storage, generated, or inputted to the server access to image content 120.

[0087] 服务器120确定用户或客户端设备110是否对所请求的图像有访问权限(步骤625)。 [0087] The server 120 determines whether the user or client device 110 has access to the requested image (step 625). 如果用户不具有对所请求图像的访问权限,服务器120可以被设置为选择性地向客户端设备110发送一条信息,指示用户或客户端设备110不具有对所请求图像内容的访问权限(步骤660)。 If the user does not have access to the requested image, the server 120 may be arranged to selectively transmit a message to the client device 110, indicating that the user or client device 110 does not have access to the requested image content (step 660 ). 否则,如果用户具有对所请求图像的访问权限,服务器120可从以前产生、存储、或输入到服务器120上的相关联的相等或更高分辨率的图像上产生一顶级分辨率图像,并通过网络130将此顶级分辨率图像传送到客户端设备110 (步骤630)。 Otherwise, if the user has access to the requested image, the server 120 may be generated from previously stored or input to the equal or higher resolution images associated with the server 120 generates a top-resolution image, and by this top-resolution image network 130 to the client device 110 (step 630).

[0088] 各种优化可用于客户缩小尺度方法,包括预载顶级分辨率图像以预期用户会要求查看这些图像(例如,如果图像是在一系列不同的图像中下一张要观看的)。 [0088] The various optimization methods can be used for downscaling the customer, including the top-resolution images to preload the intended user may ask to see the images (e.g., if the image is in a range of different images to be viewed under a).

[0089] 客户降尺度方法可以与连续下载方法一并使用。 [0089] client downscaling method can be used in conjunction with continuous download method. 例如,在一个实施例中,客户降尺度方法可用于特定的分辨率。 For example, in one embodiment, the client downscaling method can be used for a specific resolution. 连续下载方法可用于当请求高于阈值的高分辨率图像。 The method can be used when a continuous download request for the high resolution image above the threshold. 在这种情况下,为客户降尺度方法下载的顶级分辨率的图像,其分辨率可以低于在服务器上可用的最大分辨率。 In this case, the top-resolution image downloads to customers drop-scale method, the resolution can be lower than the maximum resolution available on the server. 或者,连续下载方法可以用于高达一个特定的分辨率,客户降尺度方法用于高于预定分辨率的阈值。 Alternatively, successive download method can be used up to a specific resolution, the client downscaling method for threshold is higher than a predetermined resolution. 在一些实施例中,这两种方法的组合可以被用来为某些使用场景优化各种性能参数。 In some embodiments, a combination of the two methods may be used to optimize various performance parameters used for some scenes.

[0138] 客户端设备110的用户可以使用如上所述的用户界面请求查看图像。 [0138] The user of the client device 110 may request the user interface described above is used to view the image. 显示器模块接收到该请求,转而通过网络发送一个请求到服务器120,要求获取对应于所求图像的基本分辨率图像。 Display module receives the request, in turn sends a request to the server 120 via the network, request acquisition resolution image corresponding to the requested image. 服务器120可以验证用户以确定用户是否有权访问所请求的内容。 The user authentication server 120 may determine whether the user is authorized to access the requested content. 在一个实施例中,如果用户曾登录到服务器,并且该服务器已经设置了一个包含会期标识符的cookie在客户端设备110查看器上,查看器通过一个TLS加密连接发送包含会期标识符的cookie到服务器。 In one embodiment, if the user has logged on to the server, and the server has been set containing session identifier cookie on the client device 110 viewer, the viewer through a TLS-encrypted connection to send cookie contains session identifier to server. 如果允许用户访问该图像,服务器120可以向客户端设备110发送基本分辨率的图像,于是显示器模块可以显示图案O的div的基本分辨率图像(无论是在前台或在背景中) If users are allowed to access the image server 120 may transmit images to a resolution substantially client device 110, then the display module may display a pattern of substantially O-resolution image div (whether in the foreground or in the background)

[0139] 根据一个实施例,用户可以通过点击客户端设备110的用户界面上显示的一个按钮以激活图像浏览系统。 [0139] According to one embodiment, a button, the user may be displayed on the user interface 110 by clicking on the client device to activate an image browsing system. 于是,显示器模块可以为图案3的div而建立一个鼠标移动、鼠标按下、鼠标悬停、和鼠标移出(mousemove, mousedown, mouseover, and mouseout)事件处理程序(或类似的触摸屏事件处理程序)。 Thus, the display module can be established for the mouse to move a div pattern 3, mouse down, mouse over, and mouse out (mousemove, mousedown, mouseover, and mouseout) event handler (or similar touch screen event handlers). 虚拟透镜可配置为初始的矩形尺寸。 Virtual lens can be configured as an initial rectangular size. 虚拟透镜的宽度可以起始于图案O的div的宽度的50%,同时虚拟透镜的高度可以起始于图案O的div的高度的50%。 Virtual lens width may start at 50% of the width of the pattern of the div O, while the height of the virtual lens may start at 50% of the height of pattern O of div. 然后,客户端设备110中的代码发送请求到服务器以获取第一高分辨率的图像。 Then, the client device 110 sends a request to the server code to obtain a first high-resolution image. 服务器根椐访问控制条例执行其访问权限的验证。 Verify the implementation of its access to the server per the access control policy. 如果用户具有访问权限,服务器将发送此高分辨率图像到客户端设备110。 If the user has access, high-resolution image server sends this to the client device 110.

[0140] 在高分辨率图像的下载期间,显示器模块可以被设置为在显示屏上的指示灯闪烁以指示高分辨率图像正在从服务器上下载。 [0140] During the download the high resolution image, the display module may be arranged on the display lights flash to indicate a high resolution image is being downloaded from the server. 当下载完成后,显示器模块可以提供用户一个指示,表明下载完成,并且系统已准备好。 When the download is complete, the display module may provide the user an indication that the download is complete, and the system is ready. 此外,显示器可以将光标更改,以显示“等待”(例如,在PC上的沙漏符号)下载,并在下载完成后恢复正常。 Further, the display can change the cursor, to display the "wait" (e.g., hourglass symbol on the PC), download, and returns to normal after the download is complete. 当下载完成后显示器模块向服务器120发送索取下一个更高分辨率图像的请求(如果有下一个的话),以预期用户请求查看下一个更高的分辨率的图像。 When the display module transmits the request to the server 120 after the completion of a download request for higher resolution images (if the next one), is expected to user requests to view the next higher image resolution.

[0141] 用户可以通过使用指点设备点击在基本图像中,要求显示这部分的高分辨率图像的虚拟透镜呈现在该感兴趣的区域之上。 [0141] The user can use a pointing device click on the base image, the display of the virtual lens requires a high resolution image of this part of the presentation over an area of ​​interest. 显示器可以计算虚拟透镜将被放置在显示器上的位置。 The display may calculate the virtual lens to be placed on the display position. 在一个实施例中,虚拟透镜位于感兴趣区域的中心点的正中,除非这种正中位置会使虚拟透镜与图案O的div的边界重叠。 In one embodiment, the virtual center point of the lens is located in the middle region of interest unless the center position O makes the pattern of the virtual lens div overlapping the border. 在这样的情况下,虚拟透镜可以以抵消所需要的量来防止这样的重叠,使得所对应的感兴趣区域的中心点与虚拟透镜的中心偏移。 In this case, the virtual lens may be offset an amount required to prevent such an overlap, so that the virtual center point of the central lens region of interest corresponding to the offset. 然后显示器模块可以计算可能偏移的感兴趣区域内的高分辨率图像的位置,确定高分辨率图像内的左上位置。 Then the display module may calculate the position of the high-resolution image may be shifted within the region of interest to determine the position of the upper left high-resolution image. 显示器模块可将这些坐标的反添加值放到图案2的div的风格背景位置属性上。 Display Module The reaction may add the value of these coordinates into location attribute div style of background pattern 2. 显示器模块还可以设置图案2的div的左上位置在页面上虚拟透镜的绝对位置上。 Display module may also set the absolute position of the pattern 2 div top left position on the page on the virtual lens. 然后显示器模块可以加载高分辨率图像到图案2的div背景上。 Then the display module can be loaded into the high-resolution image background pattern 2 div. 显示器模块还可以设置图案I的div的左上位置与图案2的div的相匹配。 Display module may also be provided to match the pattern position of the upper left div div pattern I 2. 在加载高分辨率的图像的同时,图案I的div的不透明背景将出现在虚拟透镜位置上。 While loading the high-resolution image, the pattern of opaque background div I will appear in the virtual lens position.

[0142] 当用户经由指点设备移动光标在图案3的div时,鼠标移动(mousemove)事件处理程序可以跟踪其移动,并致使虚拟透镜改变位置,以调整虚拟透镜内所示的高分辨率图像的部分的位置,使得虚拟透镜显示的高分辨率图像的光标所在点与下面的基本图像的光标位置点相匹配。 [0142] When the cursor is in the user div pattern 3, mouse movement (mouseMove) event handler can track its movement via the mobile pointing device, and causes the virtual lens position changes, shown within the virtual lens to adjust the image resolution point of the cursor position cursor point substantially below the image matches the position of the portion of the lens so that the virtual high-resolution image display. [0143] 当用户在指点设备上左键单击时,显示器可以冻结虚拟透镜的位置。 [0143] When the user left-click on the pointing device, the display may freeze the virtual lens position. 随后的左键单击就可以解冻虚拟透镜的位置并恢复跟踪光标位置。 Then left-click on it and unfreeze the virtual lens position tracking restore the cursor position. 这些步骤可以无限地重复下去。 These steps can be repeated indefinitely go on. 或者,当用户按下鼠标左键,显示器可以解冻虚拟透镜,然后当用户释放按钮时,冻结虚拟透镜的位置。 Alternatively, when the user presses the left mouse button, the display may unfreeze the virtual lens, then when the user releases the button, freeze the virtual position of the lens. 同样,对于一个触摸屏,当用户触摸它时,显示器可以解冻虚拟透镜,当用户停止接触时,显示器可以冻结虚拟透镜。 Similarly, for a touch screen, when the user touches it, it displays the virtual lens can be thawed, when the user stops contacting the display may freeze the virtual lens.

[0144] 当用户在指点设备上右键单击时,显示器模块可以同时增加虚拟透镜尺寸(图案2的div和图案I的div的宽度和高度)和显示在虚拟透镜上的分辨率。 [0144] When the user right-clicks on a pointing device, a display module may increase the size of the virtual lens (div div pattern 2 and the pattern width and height of the I) and resolution in the display of the virtual lens simultaneously. 要做到这一点,如果下一个更高分辨率的图像还没有被下载,显示器模块可以发送请求到服务器。 To do this, if the next higher resolution image has not been downloaded, the display module can send a request to the server. 在收到该请求后,服务器120根椐访问控制条例验证用户的访问权限,如果允许其访问,所请求的图像将从网络发送到客户端设备。 Upon receipt of this request, the server 120 per the access control policy to verify access rights of users, if allowed to access the requested image is sent from the network to the client device. 显示器可以在虚拟透镜中显示该对应于感兴趣区域的部分图像。 The display may show the virtual lens portion corresponding to the image area of ​​interest. 在一些实施例中,为了提高性能,显示器模块可以在目前的高分辨率图像的下载完成时立即请求获取下一个更高分辨率的图像,这样下载的下一个分辨率的图像可以和用户正查看的目前分辨率的图像重叠。 In some embodiments, in order to improve performance, the display module can be downloaded when the current high-resolution image of a completed immediately requesting the next higher resolution image, this image is downloaded the next resolution may view and a user is current resolution images overlap. 如果在用户请求下一个分辨率时下载还未完成,装载的指示器将相应显示,光标将变为“等待”,图案I的div的不透明背景并将显示在虚拟透镜位置。 Download has not completed if the user requests a resolution, the corresponding load indicator display, the cursor changes to "wait", a pattern I div opaque background and displays the virtual lens position. 显示器模块可以将为基本图像下载的更高分辨率图像保存在高速缓存中,以便能做到重新审视其分辨率,而无需重新下载图像数据。 Display module can be saved for higher-resolution image of the base image is downloaded in the cache, so that can be done to re-examine its resolution, without the need to re-download image data.

[0145] 显示器可以在选择使用指点设备的显示屏上提供软按钮,用来增加或减少透镜的尺寸(图案2div以及底层的图案Idiv)、增加或减少虚拟透镜中显示的分辨率、以及隐藏或显示虚拟透镜。 [0145] The display may be provided on the device's display screen using a pointing selection soft buttons to increase or decrease the size of the lens (and the underlying pattern 2div pattern idiv), increase or decrease the resolution of the display of the virtual lens, and hide or display virtual lens.

[0146] 当用户移动到另一图像或其他活动时,显示器模块可以自动停用的图像查看系统和虚拟透镜显示。 [0146] When the user moves to another image or other activities, the display module can be automatically disabled and the virtual image viewing lens system display.
