Behavior: Set video behavior (behavior) such as fixed text, scroll telop, and slideshow.
Playback time: Set the playback time length.
Update interval: Set the interval to access the site.
When the information on the accessed site has been updated according to the update interval time, the transmission / reception unit 13 inputs the updated site information and updates the display content.

Here, an example of VLBP is given below.
<Area x = 0 y = 0 w = 400 h = 200 href = http: //www.A duration = 00: 10: 00: 00 int = 01: 00>
<headline x = 0 y = 0 w = 200 h = 100 behavior = fix />
<body x = 0 y = 100 w = 400 h = 100 behavior = scroll display = trans />
<image x = 200 y = 0 w = 300 h = 200 behavior = slideshow />
</ Area>

  In the above example, the area is the coordinate value of x and y, the width (w) 400, the height (h) 200, and the URL to be referenced is http: // www. A, the display period is defined as 10 minutes, and the access interval for updating is defined as 1 minute.

  Next, the head line has a width of 200, a height of 100, and the behavior is fixed.

  Next, the body defines the width as 400, the height as 100, the behavior as scroll, and the display as transparent.

  The layout interpretation unit 16 reads an HTML file to which video attribute information using VSS is added, and performs video processing. When normal HTML that does not use VSS is received, the site interpreter 15 interprets the structure of the HTML to classify information, and in accordance with the interpretation and information classification, an HTML file with VSS added to the target HTML file. Generate. The layout interpreter 16 interprets the HTML file to which VSS is added by the site interpreter 15 in this way. However, for an HTML file to which VSS is not added even by the site interpreter 15, the layout interpreter 16 interprets the HTML file as it is as an HTML file.

  The layout interpreter 16 performs video processing on the HTML file to which the VSS has been added in accordance with the instructions of the HTML and the added VSS and in accordance with the instructions of the VLBP. Items defined by VSS include, for example, a headline, a text, an image, a video, and audio.

The following is an example of VSS.
<Example>
<html>
<head>
<link rel = "stylesheet" type = "text / vss"/>
<title vss: type = headline> 2004 New Year's Message </ title>
<H1 vss: type = body vss: order = 1> Hello </ H1>
<img src = "./ image / 0001.jpg" vss: type = image vss: order = 1 />
<img src = "./ image / 0001.jpg" vss: type = image vss: order = 2 />
</ html>

  Here, the title is displayed as “2004 New Year's Message” on the video image in accordance with the above vss: “vss: type = headline> 2004 New Year's Message </ title”. It will be.

  For the image, the image with the file name “image / 0001.jpg” is written as “vss: type = image vss: order = 1 />” by the vss notation and is displayed as the number 1.

  Here, it is preferable to use the layout / behavior parameter setting editor for setting the VLBP according to the present embodiment. The layout / behavior parameter setting editor is a graphic editor for defining VLBP, and is software for visually setting areas and defining behaviors.
