Delay time information together with the identification information F3 for identifying the video input terminal V3 and the audio input terminal A3. It is stored as 10C.

  Next, the operation will be described.

  First, any one of the optical disc player D, the video tape recorder V, and the computer P is a corresponding video input terminal V1 as a video sound source that displays video and outputs audio using the display device S. And the audio input terminal A1, the video input terminal V2, and the audio input terminal A2, or the video input terminal V3 and the audio input terminal A3. Here, which video sound source is connected to which input terminal is instructed by the user in the operation unit 9, and an instruction signal Sop corresponding to the instruction content is output from the operation unit 9 to the CPU 7. The CPU 7 recognizes which video sound source is connected to which input terminal.

  Next, the CPU 10 which has recognized which video sound source is connected to which input terminal outputs control signals Svsc and Sasc to the switches SW1 and SW2, respectively, and switches the switches SW1 and SW2 to any one of them. Switch to the input terminal to which the video sound source is connected.

  Accordingly, the switches SW1 and SW2 output the switched video signal and audio signal to the image processing unit 5 and the delay unit 1 as the video signal Svsw and the audio signal Sasw, respectively.

  Next, the image processing unit 5 to which the video signal Svsw has been input is based on a control signal Svcc from the CPU 7 in accordance with an image decoding method defined in advance for the video signal Svsw. Decoding processing is performed and the decoded image signal Svout is output to the display 6.

  As a result, the display 6 displays an image included in the decoded image signal Svout.

  On the other hand, the delay unit 1 to which the audio signal Sasw is input receives from the CPU 7 the delay time information stored in the nonvolatile memory area of the memory 10 corresponding to the audio signal Sasw (that is, the delay time information). 10A to 10C, the delay time information corresponding to the video sound source corresponding to the audio signal Sasw) is output in advance as the control signal Sdc, and the delay time indicated by the delay time information is set in the delay unit 1. Yes.

  Therefore, the CPU 7 reads out the delay time information corresponding to the video sound source recognized based on the instruction signal Sop from the operation unit 9 from the memory 10 as the memory signal Sm, and reads this as the control signal Sdc to the delay unit 1. Output.

  Next, the delay unit 1 delays the audio signal Sasw by the preset delay time and outputs the delayed audio signal Sda to the volume / tone unit 2.

  The volume / tone unit 2 adjusts the sound quality and the like in the delayed audio signal Sda based on the control signal Svc from the CPU 7 and outputs the adjusted audio signal Sva to the amplifier unit 3.

  Thus, the amplifier unit 3 amplifies the adjusted audio signal Sva with a preset amplification factor based on the control signal Sac from the CPU 7 and outputs the amplified audio signal Sout to the speaker 4 as an amplified audio signal Saout.

  The speaker 4 emits a sound corresponding to the amplified audio signal Saout.

  Here, when the CPU 7 recognizes that the video sound source has been switched on the basis of the instruction signal Sop from the operation unit 9, the CPU 7 selects the delay time information 10A to 10C corresponding to the switched video sound source. Any one of them is read from the memory 10 and output to the delay unit 1 as the control signal Sdc, so that the corresponding delay time is set in the delay unit 1.

  The matching between the output timing of the decoded image signal Svout itself from the image processing unit 5 and the output timing of the amplified audio signal Saout itself corresponding to the decoded image signal Svout from the amplifier unit 3 is a control signal from the CPU 7. Controlled by Sdc.

  Further, in the series of operations described above, the CPU 7 performs overall control of the respective constituent members based on the instruction signal Sop from the operation unit 9 so that the operation indicated by the instruction signal Sop is realized.

  At this time, information necessary for the overall control is temporarily stored in the volatile memory area of the memory 10 as the memory signal Sm, and then read again as the memory signal Sm as necessary. To be served.

  The operation state of the display device S described above is displayed on the operation display unit 8 including a liquid crystal display or the like based on the display signal Sdp from the CPU 7.

  As described above, according to the operation of the display device S according to the embodiment, based on the selection of any of the audio input terminals A1 to A3, any of the audio signals Sain1 to Sain1 input through the audio input terminal. The audio signal Sasw corresponding to one of the input audio signals Sain1 to Sain3 is delayed using a delay time set in advance according to the type of the video sound source that is the output source of Sain3. The audio signal Sasw can be appropriately delayed according to the type of the video sound source.

  Accordingly, it is possible to effectively prevent the occurrence of time mismatch between video and sound output from the same video sound source for a wide range of video sound sources of this type including the case where the types are expanded in the future.

  Further, when delaying the audio signal Sasw, any one of the delay time information 10A to 10C stored in advance for each type according to the type of the video sound source is read and used. Thus, the audio signal Sasw can be accurately delayed.

  Furthermore, since the user can arbitrarily set the delay time for each type of video sound source for each type, the degree of freedom of sound signal delay can be further increased.

  Further, by displaying the video signal Svsw output together with the audio signal Sasw from the video sound source from which the delayed audio signal Sasw is output, in parallel with the delayed audio signal Sasw, the video signal is displayed. The video based on Svsw and the sound based on the delayed audio signal Sasw can be displayed and sounded in a more accurate manner in time.

  In the above-described embodiment, the delay time in the delay time information 10A to 120C stored in the memory 10 is set depending only on the type of the corresponding video sound source. The audio signal Sasw can be delayed by using a delay time arbitrarily changed by the user from the delay time depending on.

  Further, the number of input systems as the information processing apparatus S is not limited to three as described above, and may be four or more.

  Furthermore, the above-mentioned program indicating the operation of the CPU 7 is recorded on an information recording medium such as a flexible disk or a hard disk, or is acquired and recorded via the Internet or the like, and is read and executed by a general-purpose computer. By doing so, the computer can be used as the CPU 7.

It is a block diagram which shows schematic structure of the display apparatus of embodiment.
