  • BACKGROUND OF INVENTION
  • [0002]
    Field of Invention
  • [0003]
    The present invention relates to a digital card with either live or animated captured images with memory for a continuous loop of pre-stored movies, trailers, or electronic game demo data. A small LCD screen is attached to the front of the polycarbonate plastic. Each D.R.V.C. (Digital Resolution Video Card) has a graphics processor memory and digital-to-analog connector ports at the top and bottom of card. Along each side of the card are micro compress data storage units from the top to the bottom. Each row contains six storage units, with a total of thirty mini units consisting of several rows of data stored in each mini unit. CDs and DVDs are made using the same materials and manufacturing methods, however, the data on D.R.V. is stored within the card itself, in the form somewhat the card itself in the form somewhat like DVDs small pits and bumps in the inter workings of the card. The D.R.V. card is composed of two layers of plastic, the data is arranged as a single row of data, once that designated row of data is done, the next row of data is extracted from the same mini unit until that mini unit data is done, then the optical laser eye goes to the next mini unit until all the data or storage space is used on either side of card.
  • [0004]
    In another aspect of the invention, the LCD screens allow the user to have a visual picture of information that is stored on the card. The LCD screen gives the user valuable information on movies or game platforms. The battery and CPU are stored behind the LCD screen. The images are live or animated depending on which platform is being used. The LCD screen purpose is to replace text information on DVD boxes or CD boxes by visually watching the data. The customer has a better understanding of the purchase. Once the user can see what is stored on D.R.V. card, the user can access the information depending on the trailer or game demo being used.
  • [0005]
    In another aspect of this invention, sound bits for demos will be used. The user has the option to turn down sound or increase the sound. The sound will be stored and loop over, with each viewing. The audio data will be stored along with the other data in each mini unit capsule.
  • [0006]
    In another aspect of this invention allows for more compact information to be stored, then a DVD. Once the optical eye extracts the string of data, and a MPEG encoder analyzes each frame and decides how to encode it. The encoder eliminates redundant or irrelevant data. Once the card has engaged the card converter drive, the card compress data is processed and converter it into images and audio.
  • [0007]
    In another aspect of this invention, the console has a biometric security feature. This feature allows the user to secure the system from unwanted players, thus this feature also works as a game saving feature. The user press the finger print button, a small tray opens to allow the user finger print to be scanned for future applications, this allows the user and console to be more secure in certain location on the game. Thus, providing a biometric solution to the user. The users fingerprint becomes the users memory card, saving the game by a biometric solution.
  • [0008]
    In another aspect of this invention is the four tray movie or game holder. This invention allows the user to place four D.R.V. cards inside the tray, making it easier for the user, instead of changing out games or movies each application.
  • [0009]
    In another aspect, this invention allows user to have a wireless console. A adapter is linked to the TV or rotating monitor. The console sends the image from the console by wireless applications. The adapter is more like a receiver. It de-scrambles the encrypted signal. The console communicates to the chip inside the adapter. A digital MPEG-2 signal converts the signal into an analog that the TV can recognize. The cordless console has a lithium battery. The internal modem is used for Internet connection. The Internet ports are located in the back of the console.
  • [0010]
    Another aspect of this invention is the 360 degrees monitor rotation. The optical eye from the wireless controller (keyboard) sends a electronic beam to the LCD monitor. Once the user turns left the DCD monitor follows the signal of the controller. This aspect of the invention allows the user to play anywhere in the room, without wires and without having to be directly in front of the infrared receiver. The monitor will give a special mechanism added to the neck of the monitor to allow the LCD monitor to shift 360 degrees with out human interaction.
  • [0011]
    In another aspect, this invention is the wireless controller with built-in LCD screen. This feature allows the user to play the same game on the TV on the controller. The console splits up the image form the TV to the controller, allowing the user to play directly off the controller. The controller receives signals from the console, the user can play form anywhere in the room. The audio from the game is split between the TV and controller.
  • [0012]
    In another aspect of this invention, the controller can be portable. The user can play D.R.V. cards inside the controller allowing the user to play games at anytime any place. Since the D.R.V. card is compact, it can be inserted into the controller slot in the top center, or the console can send a high pitch frequency.
  • [0013]
    In another aspect, this invention uses the console as a whole entertainment unit. The console has four processors, memory and operating system. The console DRV cards do not work like DVD or CD. The optical laser lines up with the mini ports on each side of the card, extracts the line of data and this data is sent to the CPU and processed before the system is loaded. The ROM preloads several lines of data into RAM. The console loads several lines of data, of video and audio portions are process. One mini port can hold several lines of data, allowing for more storage on one compact of card. The console tray has four trays that are alined with laser optical eyes, which extract the data from the mini ports. A chip coordinates everything. The console has several functions to give the user more choices with this invention.
  • [0014]
    This invention also allows the optical eye to go from one storage unit until all the mini storage units data has been process. From the left top to the bottom, back up to the top right, to the bottom, data is pulled out read and placed back into its correct slot. The console's optical laser eyes must stay so far ahead of the previous data streams. Depending on the type of science being converted, the encoder will decide which frame to use. The longer the frame, the more intraframes that would have to be encoded. The CPU has the correct storage unit sequence opening for each mini-unit.
  • [0015]
    The RF TV adapter, in this invention, can be used to allow multiple user to play or watch either movies or games off the same console. Thus, four users can simultaneously operate the console. A wireless signal is sent to appropriate RF adapters in each location. Once the signal has been received the network will access for user input, either by a console controller (if game) or a TV console remote (if movie). Since the data on the D.R.V. card is imprinted on the card four times, it allows the user to watch the same movie or play the same game at the same time. The console system will identify each D.R.V. title to the user on the screen, so the user can choose the preferred application. However all games that have a biometric code, still must have access by a biometric code, still must be access by a biometric finger-print to gain access to game data.
  • SUMMARY OF INVENTION
  • [0016]
    The present invention is a visual and storage solution to DVDs and CDs. This invention allows user to sample a demo of the stored movie or game platform, by watching a full color LCD screen, with sound clips. In addition, the amount of storage that can be held on this card is large. Along each side of the card are several square blocks of storage data compress within mini storage units within the card. The method of use is simple, once each string of data is removed and used, another string is extracted, and the previous string is placed back, and the process continues until either all data is used or user decide to end process. The D.R.V. card can store more data. The card data convert the string of data into either audio or images. Unlike a DVD player with one optical eye, the D.R.V. player or game console has several optical laser eyes, to scan both sides of the D.R.V. card. Each D.R.V. card main square port can hold several mini ports, which the CPU, extract data from the mini units in pre-programmed order.
