【0041】前記赤外線送受信機12から送信され、前記赤外線送受信回路6で受信された前記の時分割多重化されたデータは18で示されるデマルチプレクサに入力されて個別のシリアルデータとなり、画像データ、音声データ、選択信号はそれぞれ、5の映像信号処理回路− [0041] The transmitted from the infrared transceiver 12, the data time-division multiplexing of the received the in the infrared transceiver circuit 6 is inputted to the demultiplexer represented by 18 to become a separate serial data, image data, audio data, respectively selection signal 5 of the video signal processing circuit -
2、音声処理回路21、チューナ回路7に入力される。 2, the audio processing circuit 21, is inputted to the tuner circuit 7.
特に、画像データおよび音声データはそれぞれ音声機能付きモデム20が伝送するのに適したフォーマットに変換されNCU19を経由して、公衆網27に接続された前記通信装置に送信される。 In particular, each of the image data and audio data the audio function modem 20 via NCU19 is converted into a format suitable for transmission, it is transmitted to the communication device connected to a public network 27.

【0042】かかる構成によれば、例えば、TV電話普及を阻害しているコストが高い点に関して、リモコンと兼用したことから安価にTV電話機能を付加することが可能となる。 [0042] According to such a configuration, for example, in terms costly that inhibit TV phone penetration, it is possible to inexpensively added TV telephone function since it has shared with the remote control. また、TV電話普及の第二の阻害要因といわれている、話者の顔以外の画像情報が相手に伝わってしまうという点に関しても自分の手の動きで容易に撮影アングルならびにフレーミングが行なえるため、手軽にTV電話による会話が可能となる。 In addition, TV is said to be the second inhibiting factor of the phone penetration, easy shooting angle as well as the framing for can be carried out by the motion of his hand also in terms of image information other than the face of the speaker will be transmitted to the other party , it is possible to conversations easily TV phone.

【0043】なお、通信機能をリモコンに持たせ、テレビジョン本体では、公衆網との接続のみを行うようにしても良い。 [0043] It should be noted that, to have a communication function to the remote control, the television body, may be carried out only connection to the public network.

【0044】 [0044]

【発明の効果】以上のように、本発明によれば、リモコン側に小画面の画像表示装置を設けることで、従来のマルチ画面、OSD機能等をそのまま維持しながら、裏番組サーチやTV内蔵のプリンタの制御を、別の視聴者に対して本体画面鑑賞の妨げとなることなく、実現できるのみならず、新しい通信メディアの実現も容易ならしめるものである。 As is evident from the foregoing description, according to the present invention, by providing the image display device of the small screen to the remote control, a conventional multi-screen, while maintaining the OSD function and the like, off-screen program search or TV built the control of the printer, without hindering the main screen viewing for another viewer, not only can realize the implementation of new communication media also those makes it easy.
