It has the feature in the point made like this.

  FIG. 1 is a diagram illustrating an example of the shape of the information display device according to the present embodiment, and illustrates an arrangement example of at least a pair of panel-like touch input units respectively arranged on different surfaces of the apparatus main body. For example, FIG. 1A shows the most typical arrangement example, in which a panel-like touch input unit A0101 is arranged on one surface of the device main body 0100 and faces the panel-like touch input unit A on the other surface. This is an example in which a panel-like touch input unit B0102 that is paired with the panel-like touch input unit A is disposed at a position to be placed. Also, FIG. 1B shows that the panel-like touch input unit A0101 is arranged on one surface of the device main body 0100 and does not include the position facing the panel-like touch input unit A on the other surface. This is an example in which a panel-like touch input unit B0102 that is paired with is arranged. Also. Although not shown in the figure, the intermediate shape of (a) and (b), that is, the panel-like touch input part A on one surface and the panel-like touch input part B on the other surface are arranged at positions that partially face each other.

Further, FIG. 1C shows that two panel-like touch input portions A 1 0101a and A 2 0101b are arranged on one surface of the device main body 0100, and the other surface has a panel shape. This is an example in which a panel-like touch input unit B0102 that is paired with the touch input units A 1 and A 2 is disposed at a position including a position facing the touch input units A 1 and A 2 . As described above, the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment may be configured such that a plurality of panel-like touch input units are arranged on one surface of the device main body. Further, although not shown, the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment may be configured such that a plurality of panel-like touch input units are arranged on a plurality of surfaces of the device main body, respectively. FIG. 1D shows an example in which the device main body 0100 is shaped like a digital camera. A panel-like touch input unit A0101 is arranged on the front surface of the main body, which is one side, and the other side. This is an example in which the panel-like touch input unit B0102 is arranged on the surface corresponding to the lens side surface. As described above, the one surface and the other surface do not necessarily have to be opposed to each other, and may be different surfaces. Therefore, although illustration is omitted, for example, in the case of FIG. 1A, the other surface on which the panel-like touch input unit B is arranged may be an upper surface or a side surface in contact with one surface. Furthermore, the panel-like touch input unit may be arranged on three or more different surfaces. For example, in the case of FIG. 1A, in addition to the panel-like touch input unit A arranged on the front surface and the panel-like touch input unit B arranged on the rear surface, a panel-like touch input unit is further provided on the upper surface. It may be arranged.

As described above, the different surfaces of the device main body in the information display apparatus of the present embodiment may be two opposing surfaces, but may be two surfaces that are not facing each other, and may be three or more surfaces. In either case, the number of panel-like touch input units arranged on each surface may be one or plural.
FIG. 2 shows a combination of different surfaces of the device main body in the information display apparatus of the present embodiment. Here, in order to simplify the description, the combination in the case where the panel-like touch input unit is arranged on a different surface of the device main body 0200 having a substantially rectangular parallelepiped shape as shown in FIG. Table 0201. At that time, the number of panel-like touch input units arranged on each surface is not considered, and the number of combinations of different surfaces on which one or more panel-like touch input units are arranged is shown. As a result, there are 57 combinations in total as shown in FIG. Actually, some of these panels have different numbers of panel-like touch input units arranged on each surface, and some of them are different from the shape of the substantially rectangular parallelepiped shown in this figure. There will be countless numbers.

<Configuration>
(Information display device)
Next, the configuration of the information display device of this embodiment will be described.
FIG. 3 is a diagram illustrating an example of functional blocks of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment. The “information display device” 0300 of the present embodiment includes an “apparatus body” 0310, at least a pair of “panel touch input units” 0320, a “display control signal generation unit” 0330, and a “display unit” 0340. . Moreover, although the example which uses what a display panel equips with an external apparatus was shown in this figure, information display apparatus itself may have a display panel. Such an example will be described later.

As long as the “information display device” has such a configuration, the specific type of information display function is not limited. For example, the above mobile phone, PDA, electronic notebook, music player, portable device having a map display function with a built-in GPS function, portable device with a built-in one-segment broadcasting reception function, and the like are widely included.
Hereinafter, the structure of each part which comprises the functional block of the information display apparatus of this invention is demonstrated sequentially.

The functional blocks of the information display device according to the present invention described below can be realized as hardware, software, or both hardware and software. Specifically, if a computer is used, a CPU, a main memory, a bus, a secondary storage device, a hardware component such as an external peripheral device, an I / O port for the external peripheral device, and the like Examples include a driver program for controlling hardware, other application programs, and a user interface used for information input.
Then, by CPU processing according to the program developed on the main memory, the data inputted through the interface and stored in the memory and the hard disk are processed and stored, and the above hardware and software are controlled. Instructions are generated. The present invention can be realized not only as an information display device but also as a method. A part of the invention can be configured as software. Furthermore, a software product used for causing a computer to execute such software and a recording medium in which the product is fixed to a recording medium are naturally included in the technical scope of the present invention (the same applies throughout the present specification). Is).

(Equipment body)
The “apparatus main body” is a main body portion of the information display device, and is a housing that stores a CPU, a main memory, a storage device, and the like. Further, a display panel for displaying information may be provided. The apparatus main body of the information display apparatus of the present invention is characterized in that at least a pair of panel-like touch input units are arranged on different surfaces.

(Panel-shaped touch input unit)
The “panel-like touch input unit” is synonymous with what is generally called a touch panel in the present invention. By touching the screen of a computer or the like with a finger, a dedicated pen, etc., and specifying the position on the screen, the computer or the like It is a device that receives an input for operating a device (hereinafter, a panel-like touch input unit may be referred to as a touch panel).
The panel-like touch input unit is provided with at least a pair, and is arranged on different surfaces of the device main body. “At least a pair” means that each one is arranged on at least two different surfaces, and if it is more than that, the number of surfaces to be arranged and the number of panel-like touch input units arranged on each surface Any number. In addition, it is not necessary for the paired panel-like touch input units to form independent pairs such as A and B, C and D, and A and C are paired at the same time as A and B are paired. It may be a relationship such as Those shown in the previous figure 1 (c) Even in this example, the panel-shaped touch input unit A 1 and at the same time the panel-shaped touch input unit A 2 and the panel and the panel-shaped touch input unit B is pairs This is an example in which the shape touch input part B is a pair.

  However, the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment generates and displays a display control signal according to a combination of inputs to the panel-like touch input units on different surfaces. It is desirable that the user can operate while visually confirming the position of another surface corresponding to the input position on one surface.

(Another configuration example of the panel touch input unit)
From this point of view, in the information display device of this embodiment, it is desirable that at least a pair of panel-like touch input units are respectively disposed on two mutually opposing surfaces, and at least one panel-like touch input is provided. The part is preferably a display panel. Further, it is more desirable that the panel-like touch input units respectively disposed on the two opposing surfaces have substantially the same shape and the same arrangement. Because, with this configuration, for example, when the user touches the back panel with a finger, the position on the front panel corresponding to that position can be the same position on the opposing surface. As a result, it is possible for the user to easily perform an operation as if operating from both sides of one surface while visually confirming the operation positions on both surfaces.

FIG. 4 is a diagram showing another example of functional blocks of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment, and shows a preferable example. The “information display device” 0400 shown in the figure is basically the same as the device shown in FIG. 3, but at least a pair of “panel-like touch input units” 0420 are arranged on two opposite surfaces of each other. It is characterized in that it is.
FIG. 5 is a diagram showing another example of functional blocks of the information display apparatus of the present embodiment, and shows a preferable example. The “information display device” 0500 shown in this figure is characterized in that one panel-like touch input unit 0521 is a display panel. In the example of this figure, the other panel-like touch input unit 0522 is not a display panel, but unlike the example of this figure, the other panel-like touch input part may also be a display panel. That is, the information display device of the present example includes all devices in which at least one of at least one pair (that is, two or more) panel-like touch input units is a display panel. Although not shown in FIGS. 4 and 5, in these cases, the panel-like touch input units arranged on different surfaces are preferably substantially the same shape and arrangement.

FIG. 6 is a diagram showing an example of the shape of the information display device according to the present embodiment for reference, and at least a pair of panel-like touch input units are respectively arranged on two opposing surfaces. An example is shown. Among these, FIG. 6A shows the same most typical arrangement example as shown in FIG. 1A, in which a panel-like touch input unit A0601 is arranged on the front surface of the apparatus main body 0600, and relative to this. This is an example in which a panel-like touch input unit B0602 that is paired with the panel-like touch input unit A is arranged at a position facing the panel-like touch input unit A on the rear surface. 6B is similar to that shown in FIG. 6A, but is an example in which the two opposite surfaces are both side surfaces of the device body.
The “surface” here is typically a flat surface, but may be a curved surface. FIG. 6C shows an example in which one surface extends from the front surface to the upper surface of the device main body, and the other surface extends from the rear surface facing the lower surface to the lower surface. Furthermore, since the shape of the device main body itself is not limited to a substantially rectangular parallelepiped as described above, the shape of the device main body is substantially spherical as shown in FIG. 6 (d), or substantially as shown in FIG. 6 (e). It may be a barbell shape. Even in such a case, as long as they are arranged so that their backs face each other in a generally symmetrical position of the device main body, the panel-like touch input units are respectively disposed on two opposite surfaces of the device main body itself It can be thought that.
It should be noted that the panel-like touch input units shown in FIGS. 4A to 4E are all preferable examples having substantially the same shape and the same arrangement.

(Display control signal generator)
The “display control signal generation unit” is configured to generate a display control signal according to a combination of inputs to each of the at least one pair of panel-like touch input units.

FIG. 7 shows an example of generation of a display control signal corresponding to a combination of inputs to the panel-like touch input unit. In the table 0700 shown in this figure, a display control signal 0703 generated according to a combination of an input 0701 to the panel-like touch input unit A and an input to the panel-like touch input unit B0702 is shown for each pattern. For example, in pattern 1, the input to the panel-like touch input unit A is an input fixed at coordinates (X, Y), and the input to the panel-like touch input unit B is an arcuate sweep input (here, the panel-like touch input unit A). This is an input that traces mainly on the touch input part with a curved line (however, if it can indicate the rotation direction of the screen, an input that traces with a straight line is not excluded), the screen centered on the coordinates (X, Y) A display control command for rotating the is generated.
As a specific touch operation by the user in this case, for example, the user touches one point of the touch panel on the back side of the device main body and traces the touch panel that also serves as the display screen on the front side with a curve. As a result, a display control signal is generated for display control so that the image displayed on the screen rotates in the direction traced around the position corresponding to the one point. At that time, as described above, the user visually confirms the position corresponding to the coordinate position (X, Y) of the panel-like touch input unit on the panel of the panel-like touch input unit B. It is easier to operate. Therefore, a position corresponding to the coordinate position (X, Y) of the panel touch input unit A may be displayed on the panel of the panel touch input unit B.

For example, in the pattern 2, the input to the panel-like touch input unit A is an input for designating the coordinates (X 1 , Y 1 ) and the coordinates (X 2 , Y 2 ), and the panel-like touch input unit B Centered on the axis connecting coordinates (X 1 , Y 1 ) and coordinates (X 2 , Y 2 ) A display control command for rotating the 3D video image (rotation axis) is generated. As a specific touch operation by the user in this case, for example, the user touches two points on the touch panel on the back side of the device body and traces the touch panel that also serves as the display screen on the front side with a straight line. As a result, a display control signal is generated for display control so that the 3D image displayed on the screen rotates in the direction traced with the line corresponding to the line connecting the two points as the rotation axis.

For example, in the pattern 3, the input to the panel-like touch input unit A is an input for designating the coordinates (X 1 , Y 1 ) and the coordinates (X 2 , Y 2 ), and the panel-like touch input unit B Display control command for enlarging and displaying an image of a rectangular area defined by coordinates (X 1 , Y 1 ) and coordinates (X 2 , Y 2 ), when the input to is input by tapping the panel once with a finger Is generated. In this case, a predetermined magnification may be set in advance such that, for example, the image is enlarged by 120% for each tapping. Also, unlike this example, the input that specifies the coordinates (X 1 , Y 1 ) and the coordinates (X 2 , Y 2 ) and the input that touches or separates the opposite panel with a finger are combined. While touching the panel, the image of the rectangular area defined by the coordinates (X 1 , Y 1 ) and the coordinates (X 2 , Y 2 ) is enlarged at a constant speed, and the enlargement is stopped when the finger is released from the panel. A display control command may be generated.

(Display section)
The “display unit” is configured to display on the display panel under the control of the generated display control signal.
FIG. 8 shows an example of display on the display panel that is controlled by the generated display control signal. This figure is an example of display based on the display control signal shown in pattern 1 of FIG. Among these, (a) shows a screen display before input. Next, (b) shows an operation (input B) in which the user touches one point (X, Y) of the panel (X, Y) on the back side of the device body (input A) and traces the front side panel with a curve as indicated by an arrow. The state (input image) performed is shown. In this case, as described above, a position corresponding to the coordinate position (X, Y) of the back panel may be displayed on the front panel. As a result, an input control signal corresponding to the combination of inputs is generated, and a display is made on the display panel under the control of the control signal. As a result, as shown in FIG. The state in which the image is moved from the original position (shown by a broken line) displayed in (a) to a position rotated by a predetermined angle in the arrow direction shown in (b) is displayed.
Note that the display unit may be configured not to display based on the direct display control signal, but to indirectly display the display control signal and reflect the result of use. For example, in a digital camera type information display apparatus as shown in FIG. 1D, the lens position for camera focus adjustment is displayed using a display control signal generated by tracing the panel-like touch input unit B. It may be possible to move the image and display a screen with the focus adjusted to reflect this result.

(Hardware configuration)
Next, the hardware configuration of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment will be described.
FIG. 9 is a schematic diagram illustrating an example of a hardware configuration of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment. The panel-like touch input unit of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment includes “storage device (recording medium)” 0901, “main memory” 0902, “CPU” 0903, “I / O” 0904, and “I / O”. It consists of a plurality of “touch panels” 0905 connected via “O”. Note that the “touch panel” here refers to the panel itself excluding the storage device, the main memory, the CPU, and the I / O from the panel-like touch input unit, unlike the general example described above. The display control signal generation unit includes a “storage device (recording medium)”, a “main memory”, and a “CPU”. The display unit includes a “storage device (recording medium)”, “main memory”, “CPU”, and “I / O”. Furthermore, as shown in the figure, the information display device (display unit) of the present embodiment may include a display panel 0906 via an I / O.
These are connected to each other through a data communication path such as “system bus” 0907, and perform transmission / reception and processing of information. The storage device stores various programs executed by the CPU. The main memory provides a work area which is a work area when the program is executed by the CPU. A plurality of memory addresses are assigned to the main memory and the storage device, respectively, and a program executed by the CPU performs processing by exchanging data with each other by specifying and accessing the memory address. It is possible. In this example, a panel-like touch input program, a display control signal generation program, and a display key input program are stored in the storage device, and these programs are automatically read from the storage device when the power is turned on, for example. Resident in memory.

  Next, a hardware configuration related to each unit will be specifically described. First, a configuration related to the panel-like touch input unit will be described. The panel-like touch input program accepts an input signal based on an operation of a user's finger or the like via the I / O according to a procedure determined by itself. In this case, at least two input signals, that is, an input signal based on an operation on a panel disposed on one surface of the device main body and an input signal based on an operation on a panel disposed on another surface are received.

  Next, a configuration related to the display control signal generation unit will be described. The display control signal generation program generates a display control signal according to a combination of at least two input signals received as described above, according to a procedure determined by itself. The type of display control signal to be generated according to the combination of input signals is determined with reference to, for example, a table associating the combination of input signals with the display control signal as shown in FIG. For this reason, it is desirable that the information display device stores such a table in a storage device in advance.

  Next, the structure which concerns on a display part is demonstrated. The display program generates display information according to the generated display control signal according to a procedure determined by itself, and performs display based on the display information. This display is performed using, for example, a display panel connected via I / O.

<Process flow>
FIG. 10 is a diagram illustrating an example of the flow of processing in the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment.

(Information display device)
FIG. 12 is a diagram illustrating an example of functional blocks of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment. As shown in the figure, an “information display device” 1200 according to the present embodiment includes an “apparatus main body” 1210, at least a pair of “panel-shaped touch input units” 1221 and 1222, and a “display control signal generation unit” 1230. , “Symbol display unit” 1250 and “symbol display unit” 1250. Although not shown in the figure, the “symbol display unit” may include “input coordinate point display means”. Note that at least one “panel-like touch input unit” in the present embodiment is limited to a display panel. In the example of this figure, the “panel-like touch input unit” 1221 is a display panel. Among these, the configurations of “device main body”, “panel-shaped touch input unit”, “display control signal generation unit”, and “display unit” are the same as those described in the first embodiment, and are omitted here. The “display unit” will be described.

(Symbol display)
The “symbol display unit” is for displaying a symbol corresponding to an input on another surface opposite to the one surface in response to an input on the one surface.
When the symbol display unit has “input coordinate point display means”, the input coordinate point display means is configured to display the input coordinate position on the opposite touch panel as an input to one surface.
FIG. 35 is a diagram for explaining the function of the symbol display unit.
As shown in this figure, in the case where “panel touch input portion L” 3522 of at least a pair of “panel touch input portions” is a display panel, the symbol display portion 3550 has at least a pair of “panel touch inputs”. When the input signal R to the other “panel-like touch input part R” 3521 among the “input parts” is acquired from the panel-like touch input part R, the information display device executes processing as indicated by a solid line. That is, the symbol display unit performs “input processing R” 3551 for acquiring the input signal R, and performs “symbol display signal generation processing” 3553 based on the signal. Then, in order to display the generated symbol display signal on the “panel-shaped touch input unit L” arranged on the surface opposite to the “panel-shaped touch input unit R”, “symbol display L” 3554 “panel-shaped” It is transmitted to the touch input unit L ”. As a result, the symbol display based on the signal input to the “panel-like touch input unit R” can be performed on the “panel-like touch input unit L” which is a surface opposite to this and is also a display panel. . In this case, the “panel-like touch input portion R” is, for example, the rear side (back side) surface of the device main body 3510, and the “panel-like touch input portion L” is the front side (front side) surface.

  On the other hand, when “panel touch input portion R” 3521 of at least a pair of “panel touch input portions” is a display panel, symbol display portion 3550 has at least a pair of “panel touch input portions”. When the input signal R to the other “panel-like touch input part L” 3522 of the “parts” is acquired from the panel-like touch input part L, the information display device executes processing as indicated by a broken line. That is, the symbol display unit performs “input processing L” 3555 for acquiring the input signal R, and performs “symbol display signal generation processing” 3553 based on the signal. Then, in order to display the generated symbol display signal on the “panel-shaped touch input unit R” disposed on the surface opposite to the “panel-shaped touch input unit L”, “symbol display R” 3552 is displayed as “panel-shaped display”. It is transmitted to the touch input unit R ”. As a result, the symbol display based on the signal input to the “panel-like touch input portion L” can be performed on the “panel-like touch input portion R” which is a surface and a display panel opposite to each other. . In this case, the “panel-like touch input part L” is, for example, the rear side face of the device main body 3510, and the “panel-like touch input part R” is the front side face.

  The significance of displaying symbols in this way is to allow the user to visually know the position of input made on the surface of the device body that does not enter the user's view (typically the rear surface). It is in. For example, an input fixed to the coordinates (X, Y) of the rear panel is made, and an image displayed on the front panel by performing an arcuate sweep input on the front panel corresponds to the coordinates (X, Y). If the user wants to rotate around the position, the user knows how the image rotates unless the position corresponding to the coordinates (X, Y) of the rear panel is indicated. I can't. Therefore, by displaying the position corresponding to the coordinates (X, Y) of the rear panel as a symbol on the front surface, the user can visually know the position, and can easily perform the operation. become.

For this reason, the left and right sides are reversed so that they move in the same direction as the entire surface.

  FIG. 14 is a diagram showing an example of symbol display. When a display part has an input coordinate point display means, it is an example of the symbol display which the said input coordinate point display means performs in an input coordinate position. For example, FIG. 14A shows an example in which a cross-shaped symbol similar to that shown in FIG. 13A is displayed on the panel-like touch input unit 1412, and the input coordinates are determined by the intersection of the symbols. The position is shown. FIG. 14B shows the input coordinate position by the tip of a linear arrow symbol, and FIG. 14C shows the input coordinate position by the dot position.

The “front and back enlargement / reduction means” of the “display control signal generation unit” uses the input to the display panel side of the pair of panel-like touch input units to generate a signal for reducing the display, and the panel-like touch facing the display panel. An input to the input unit is used to generate a signal for enlarging the display. In such a configuration, when there is an input to the display panel, the display on the display panel is enlarged, and when there is an input to the side opposite to the display panel, the display on the display panel is reduced. This is because, when inputting on the display panel side, the user is operated as if pushing from this side to the other side, and when inputting on the opposite side, it is as if pulling out from this side to this side. Since the operation is performed, it is intended to facilitate the visual operation for the user.

FIG. 28 shows an example of the operation procedure of the information display apparatus of the present embodiment. The left side of the drawing (a) is a state before the operation, and shows a state at the moment when one point of the rear panel touch input unit is hit with the left index finger. The information display device of this example is also an example having the symbol display unit as described in the second embodiment, and it is shown that a substantially cross-shaped symbol is displayed on the front surface in response to an input to the rear surface. Yes. At this time, the screen display is still in the state before the original enlargement. Next, as shown on the right side of the figure (a), the display on the screen is enlarged as a state after the operation in response to the hitting operation with the left index finger. At this time, a rule such as centering on a point where the back surface is struck with a finger may be determined in advance as to where to enlarge the screen. This figure (b) compares the display screen before operation with the enlarged screen after operation for reference.
Also, unlike the example in the figure, when the finger touches one point on the front panel-like touch input unit, the screen display is reduced as the state after the operation. Also, in these cases, each tap may be enlarged / reduced at a predetermined magnification, or a finger may be kept in contact with the panel-like touch input unit for a predetermined time, and a predetermined amount may be applied during the contact. The enlargement / reduction may be performed at an enlargement speed.
In this example, the display is enlarged when the rear surface is tapped, and the display is reduced when the front surface is tapped. However, in this example, the user can operate visually and intuitively because the screen is pushed forward by tapping the back, and the screen can be pushed backwards by tapping the front. More preferred.

The storage device stores various programs executed by the CPU. In this example, a program similar to that of the information display device of the first embodiment is stored.

  Next, a hardware configuration related to each unit will be described. Here, a specific configuration of the display control signal generation unit will be described. When the panel-like touch input program receives an input signal to the panel-like touch input unit in accordance with the configuration described in the first embodiment, the display control signal generation program first follows the procedure determined by itself, and the input is first performed with a pair of panel-like touches. From which panel of the input unit is determined. As a result, when it is determined that the input is on the display panel side, a signal for reducing the display is generated. On the other hand, if it is determined that the input is to the opposite side, a signal for enlarging the display is generated. This process can be executed by following the rules in which the input on the display panel side and the display control signal for reduction and the input on the opposite side and the display control signal for enlargement are associated in advance.

<Process flow>
FIG. 30 is a diagram illustrating an example of a process flow in the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment, and illustrates an example of a process flow related to display control signal generation and display in the overall process flow. . Since the remaining processing flow is the same as the processing flow shown in FIG. 10 in the first embodiment, illustration and description thereof are omitted.
The flow of processing shown in the figure includes display control signal generation step S3001 and display step S3005. Among these, the display control signal generation step has the following sub-steps.
First, in step S3002 for determining whether the input at the panel-like touch input unit is the display panel side or the opposite side, the information display device makes the determination.
Next, when the determination result in the step is a determination result that the input is on the display panel side, the information display device generates a display control signal for reducing the display (step S3003).
On the other hand, when the determination result in the step S3002 is a determination result that it is on the opposite side, the information display device generates a display control signal for enlarging the display (step S3004).
Further, in the display step S3005, the information display device performs display based on the control signals generated in the respective steps S3003 and S3004.

<Effect>
According to the invention of the present embodiment, when inputting to the display panel side, the operation is performed as if the user pushes from this side to the other side, and when inputting to the opposite side, the operation is performed as if pulling from the other side to this side. Thus, it is possible to provide an information display device provided with means for enabling the user to perform operations visually and intuitively, and an information display method using the device.

<Overview>
The information display device according to the present embodiment is basically limited to the information display device according to the first embodiment (however, at least a pair of panel-like touch input units are respectively disposed on two opposite surfaces of the information display device. ). However, in the information display device according to the present embodiment, the display control signal generation unit uses the input to the panel-like touch input unit facing the display panel among the pair of panel-like touch input units to generate the pop-up display signal. It is characterized in that the input to the panel side is used to generate a scroll signal in the popped up screen.

<Configuration>
(General)
FIG. 31 is a diagram illustrating an example of functional blocks of the information display apparatus according to the present embodiment. The “information display device” 3100 of this embodiment includes an “apparatus body” 3110, at least a pair of “panel-like touch input units” 3120, a “display control signal generation unit” 3130, and a “display unit” 3140. . Although this point is common to the information display apparatus of the first embodiment, the apparatus of the present embodiment has a “display control signal generation unit” having “front and back browsing means” 3136. Among the above, since the configurations of the device main body, the panel-like touch input unit, and the display unit are the same as those described in the first embodiment, the configuration of the display control signal generation unit will be described here.

(Display control signal generator)
The “front and back browsing means” of the “display control signal generator” uses the input to the panel touch input unit facing the display panel among the pair of panel touch input units to generate the pop-up display signal, and to the display panel side. Is used to generate a scroll signal in the popped up screen.

FIG. 32 shows an example of the operation procedure of the information display apparatus of the present embodiment. This figure is an example of an information display device on which a program table of a digital television broadcast receiver is displayed. This figure (a) shows the state which pressed one point of the back surface equivalent to the range by which the program guide is displayed on the front surface among the panel-like touch input parts of the back surface with the left index finger. Then, detailed program information of the program at that location is displayed on a pop-up screen (speech screen). In this example, since the part where the program “BS-1” is displayed in the program guide is pressed, detailed information of the program is displayed on the pop-up screen. Further, when the entire detailed program information cannot be displayed in the pop-up screen, a scroll screen is displayed. Therefore, the pop-up screen can be scrolled and displayed by sliding the portion where the pop-up screen is displayed on the front panel touch input unit with the right index finger up and down. This figure (b) expands and shows the screen containing the pop-up screen displayed by the operation concerning reference.

From which panel of the input unit is determined. As a result, when it is determined that the input is to the panel-like touch input unit facing the display panel, a pop-up display signal is generated using the input to the panel-like touch input unit facing the display panel. On the other hand, when it is determined that the input is on the display panel side, a scroll signal in the popped up screen is generated. This process includes a panel-like touch input unit facing the display panel in advance and a display control signal for pop-up display, and a display control signal for input on the display panel and scrolling in the popped up screen. It can be executed by following the rules associated with each.

The processing flow in this figure includes a display control signal generation step S3401, a pop-up display step S3404, and a scroll display step S3407. Among these, the display control signal generation step has the following sub-steps.
First, in step S3402, whether the input at the panel-like touch input unit is an input to the display panel side or an input to the panel-like touch input unit facing the display panel, the information display device makes the determination.
Next, when the determination result in the step is a determination result that the input to the panel-like touch input unit that faces the display panel, the information display device displays the panel-like touch input that faces the display panel. A display control signal for pop-up display control is generated using the input to the unit (step S3403).
On the other hand, if the determination result in step S3402 is a determination result indicating that the input is to the display panel, the information display device determines whether there is a scroll screen (pop-up screen and its scroll bar). This is performed (step S3405).
As a result, when it is determined that there is a scroll screen, the information display device generates a display control signal for scroll display control of the scroll screen (step S3406).
Furthermore, the information display device performs display based on the display control signal generated in the above display control signal generation step S3401. That is, when a pop-up display control signal is generated, pop-up display is performed based on the display control signal (step S3404).
On the other hand, when the scroll display control signal is generated, scroll display is performed based on the display control signal (step S3407).

<Effect>
