Description

    CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of Korean Application No. 2007-117095, filed Nov. 16, 2007, in the Korean Intellectual Property Office, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • Aspects of the present invention relate to an apparatus for displaying and playing multimedia contents, and, more particularly, to a user interface for displaying and playing the multimedia contents, which is capable of allowing the user to easily recognize information about multimedia contents at a glance, and allowing the user to more easily retrieve desired information, through an image pre-play function, an apparatus comprising the same, and a control method thereof.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • In accordance with recent developments in the field of image and audio media, a recording medium capable of recording and storing a large amount of high-quality image data or high-quality audio data corresponding to a long playback time has been developed and are commercially available. Such a recording medium includes an optical disc, such as, a digital versatile disc (DVD), for example.
  • Also, an optical disc system capable of recording multimedia contents on an optical disc and playing the recorded multimedia contents has been developed and are commercially available. Such multimedia contents include images and audio, for example, and such an optical disc system includes a digital versatile disc (DVD) recorder, for example.
  • Such a DVD recorder plays back images and/or audio recorded on a DVD, and outputs the images and/or audio through a screen and/or a speaker. For multimedia contents consisting of moving images, the DVD recorder uses a coding compression algorithm proposed by the moving picture expert group (MPEG) to encode and record the multimedia contents. For the playback of the recorded multimedia contents, the DVD recorder decodes the encoded multimedia contents to reproduce original multimedia contents.
  • Personal video recorders (PVRs) have also been developed and are commercially available. Since such PVRs store a broadcast signal transmitted from a broadcasting station in a hard disk drive (HDD) or a storage medium other than the HDD in the form of a digital signal, it provides an environment enabling the user not only to view a broadcast of the broadcast signal in real time, but also to play back a stored broadcast signal every time the user wants to view a stored broadcast of the broadcast signal.
  • In typical cases, however, retrieval of a desired multimedia content can be achieved only after the user opens storage areas, namely, folders, in which the multimedia contents are stored one by one, because the multimedia contents are arranged in a form of a list.
  • In the typical multimedia content retrieval method, a number of operations performed to retrieve a desired multimedia content from the folder in which multimedia contents are stored increases as a depth (or a number of subfolders) of the folder increases. In order to retrieve a desired one of the multimedia contents, the user should search the multimedia contents stored in the subfolders one by one.
  • In the typical multimedia content retrieval method, in which listed multimedia contents are searched individually to retrieve a desired multimedia content, the searching operation is carried out only based on titles of the multimedia contents. In order to obtain detailed information about a certain multimedia content, it is necessary to actually play back the multimedia content. For this reason, it is inconvenient when the played-back multimedia content does not correspond to a multimedia content desired by the user, since search and retrieval operations would need to be repeated, possibly multiple times, to retrieve the desired multimedia content.
  • Furthermore, the recent increase in the capacities of the DVDs and the PVRs, and the recent continuous increase in the number of available multimedia contents have resulted in increased difficulty in searching an enormous amount of the multimedia contents.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS
  • Reference will now be made in detail to aspects of the present invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein like reference numerals refer to the like elements throughout. The aspects are described below in order to explain the present invention by referring to the figures.
  • FIG. 1 is a block diagram illustrating an apparatus for displaying and playing multimedia contents in accordance with an aspect of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 1, the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100 includes an input unit 110, a storage unit 120, a controller 130, a screen display unit 140, and an audio output unit 150.
  • The multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100 is an apparatus which is equipped with a digital circuit to process digital data, while having a function to display and play images and/or audio through a screen (for example, of the screen display unit 140) and/or a speaker (for example, of the audio output unit 150). Examples of the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100 include a computer, a printer, a digital TV, a digital camera, a digital copying machine, a personal digital assistant (PDA), a mobile phone, a portable multimedia player (PMP), an MP3 player, a digital video recorder, or other devices. Hereinafter, constituent elements of the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100 will be described in detail with reference to FIG. 1.
  • The input unit 110 receives inputs representing sorting items of a multimedia content selected to be played back from among a plurality of multimedia contents. In aspects of the present invention, sorting items refers to information that is used to sort, classify, identify, distinguish, and/or select the multimedia contents. For example, the input unit 110 receives a main item for a selection of a kind of a multimedia content (for example, music, video, radio, or photograph). The input unit 110 also receives an upper-level item as a sub-item of the main item to further sort or distinguish the main item.
  • For example, where the main item is music, the upper-level item may include genre, preference, album, and/or artist of the music. In aspects of the present invention, preference refers to a user's characterization, affinity, or a user generated item category for the main item. On the other hand, where the main item is video, the upper-level item may include genre, preference, or actor, for example.
  • The input unit 110 further receives a lower-level item as a sub-item of the upper-level item. For example, where the upper-level item in the main item “music” is genre, the lower-level item thereof may include pop, ballad, jazz, or rock, for example. On the other hand, where the upper-level item in the main item “video” is genre, the lower-level item may include melodrama, horror, action, science fiction (SF), etc. Also, the input unit 110 receives file information selected to be executed from among playable file information pieces included in the lower-level item.
  • Preferably, selection of the sorting items of the multimedia contents to be played back are directly input to the input unit 110 by an operation of the user through a keyboard, a touch screen, a mouse, a track ball, or a keypad on a PDA, for example. The input unit 110 may receive the selection of the sorting items through a remote controller equipped with direction buttons and/or numeral buttons in other aspects.
  • Although the sorting items are described as including three items, namely, a main item, an upper-level item, and a lower-level item, in the illustrated aspect, such is not required. That is, various kinds and various numbers of items may be selected as sorting items, or included in the sorting items, in accordance with various structures, characteristics, and capacities of the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100.
  • The storage unit 120 stores sorting items each sorted as a main item, an upper-level item, or a lower-level item. The storage unit 120 also stores a plurality of file information pieces, playable files, and/or pre-playable files which indicated as another type of file information. Here, the “pre-playable file” refers to a scale-reduced playable file produced based on an original playable file through an editing or a reduction in the scale of the original playable file. In aspects of the present invention, a scale refers to a size and/or a length. The storage unit 120 also stores a stop point of the pre-playable file when a playback of a pre-playable file is stopped during the playback of the pre-playable file.
  • The storage unit 120 may also be a module which can input and output information. Examples of the storage unit 120 include a hard disk, a flash memory, a compact flash (CF) card, a secure digital (SD) card, a smart media (SM) card, a multimedia (MMC) card, and a memory stick. The storage unit 120 may be equipped in the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100, or may be equipped in a separate device.
  • Hereinafter, various functions of the controller 130 will be discussed. The controller 130 controls a display of the sorting items through a screen display unit 140. In detail, the controller 130 controls the display of the main item and the corresponding sub-item of multimedia contents to be played back. For example, when the displayed main item is selected, the controller 130 displays the sub-item of the selected main item, namely, the upper-level item. When the displayed upper-level item is selected in turn, the controller 130 displays the sub-item of the selected upper-level item, namely, the lower-level item.
  • The controller 130 also arranges and controls the display of a plurality of file information pieces included in the displayed sorting items. That is, the controller 130 controls display of a plurality of file information pieces corresponding to the displayed sorting items in a form of arranged playable thumbnails. The controller 130 also controls display of a title and additional information of each file information piece. For an audio file information piece, the additional information thereof may include information as to an artist, an album, a genre, and a preference of the audio file. For video file information piece, the additional information thereof may include information as to a character, a genre, and a preference of the video file. In aspects of the present invention, each playable thumbnail presents a plurality of file information for a multimedia content in a compact format, and includes a title, one or more images, and the like. The playable thumbnails play at least a portion of corresponding multimedia contents, which is referred to as a pre-play function. The playable thumbnails may be of video, audio, or other multimedia files.
  • When at least one of the file information pieces is selected, the controller 130 controls display of the selected file information piece in an activated state, while controlling the display of the file information pieces that are arranged adjacent to the selected file information piece in an inactive or an inactivated state. In this case, the number of file information pieces displayed in the form of the playable thumbnails may be varied in accordance with a size of the screen display unit 140 equipped in the multimedia content displaying and playing unit 100, or other factors.
  • The controller 130 also controls display of an indicator 360 (FIGS. 3C and 3D), in order to indicate a position of the activated file information piece within a continuum of file information pieces. The user can change the position of the indicator 360 by touching and dragging the indicator 360. The user can also change the position of the indicator 360 by touching a selected one of the displayed lower-level items 330 to move the indicator to the touched position.
  • The controller 130 also moves the position of the file information piece in accordance with a command to move the file information when the command is input or received. In this case, the position of the indicator 360 is also changed in accordance with the moved file information piece.
  • The controller 130 also controls a change in positions of the file information pieces in accordance with a touch, drag, or stroke operations. For example, in a case of a touch screen, when the user touches the file information piece that may be displayed as a third thumbnail from the right (see FIGS. 4A and 4B), the third file information piece may be moved to a central area where the file information will be activated. Further, the user can repeat the touch and drag operation on the third file information piece to again move the third file information from the central area to a position of the first file information piece. Further, using a stroke operation, it is also possible to rapidly move a plurality of file information pieces as a group (see FIGS. 5A and 5B).
  • Meanwhile, when at least one of the file information pieces is selected, the controller 130 controls pre-play of the file represented by the selected file information piece. Then, during the pre-play of the file, if a file stop command is input or received, the controller 130 stops the pre-play of the file at that stop point. When a file return command is subsequently input or received, the controller 130 resumes the pre-play of the file, resuming from the stop point of the file.
  • On the other hand, during the pre-play of a file (referred to as a former file), if the controller 130 receives a request for execution of another file (referred to as a latter file), the controller 130 stops the pre-play of the former file, and stores the stop point of the former file in the storage unit 120. Subsequently, the controller 130 executes the latter file, displays the latter file, and pre-plays the latter file. When a user desires to resume the pre-play of the former file, the user inputs a command for the controller 130 to resume the pre-play of the former file, resuming from the stop point of the former file.
  • Additionally, the controller 130 respectively provides progressive bars on the file information pieces displayed in the form of the playable thumbnails to indicate progress of the pre-play, for example. For multimedia contents (or files) associated with music, the controller 130 also controls to provide a resume function for an associated file information piece. For sake of illustration, in accordance with the resume function, when the user listening to a song while checking additional information about the song retrieves another song to listen, and subsequently resumes the pre-play of the song, the pre-play of the song can be resumed from a point where the pre-play of the song was stopped.
  • For multimedia contents (or files) associated with videos, the controller 130 provides a pre-play function in various ways. For example, the controller 130 may provide the pre-play function by playing only a portion of the file. In this case, a starting point of the pre-play of the multimedia contents may be a point of the multimedia contents that jumped (or skipped) a certain percentage of an overall length of the multimedia contents (for example, 10%), taking into consideration a fact that most commercially available multimedia content, such as video files have an opening part consisting of a black image and/or a promotional image (or advertisement) associated with a studio or a producer of the video.
  • For multimedia contents (or files) associated with videos, again the controller 130 also provides a resume function where the user, while viewing one video, retrieves another video to view a latter video, and subsequently resumes the pre-play of the one video, the pre-play of the one video can be resumed from a point where the pre-play of the one video was stopped.

  • In accordance with the control procedure, main items 310 of multimedia contents are first displayed (operation 200). In detail, as shown in FIG. 3A, the main items 310 of multimedia contents, for example, items “music” 310 a, “radio” 310 b, “video” 310 c, “photo” 310 d, “file browser” 310 e, “bluetooth” 310 f, “import” 310 g, and “setup” 310 h, are displayed through the screen display unit 140, which is a user interface (i.e., a touch screen) in this aspect of the present invention.
  • When the user selects a main item corresponding to a file to be executed from among the main items 310, namely, the item “music” 310 a, as shown in FIG. 3A, the sub-item of the selected main item 310, namely, an upper-level item 320, is displayed, as shown in FIG. 3B. The displayed upper-level item 320 is arranged at an upper screen portion of the screen display unit 140. At least one upper-level item may be displayed. The displayed upper-level item 320 includes a section bar 320 a positioned at the right side of the displayed upper-level item 320. If a downward-arrow shape of the section bar 320 a is selected, a plurality of upper-level items are displayed in a downwardly-arranged state.
  • When the user selects one of the upper-level items from among the downwardly-arranged upper-level items, a bar 320 b of the upper-level item 320 of the selected main item 310 is moved to the selected upper-level item as shown in FIG. 3B. With the movement of the bar 320 b, and a selection of one of the main item 320, file information 340 and lower-level items 330 are also changed to correspond to the selected upper-level item 320, as shown in FIG. 3C.
  • To illustrate in detail, the selected main item 310 corresponds to the item “music” 310 a is selected in FIG. 3A, and the displayed upper-level items 320 as the sub-items corresponding to the item “music” 310 a, are items “artist”, “album”, “song”, “genre”, and “preference”, for example.
  • When the user selects the item “genre” as an upper-level item 320 (operation 203 and FIG. 3B), lower-level items 330 that corresponds to the item “genre” are displayed. For example, the lower-level items 330 that corresponds to the item “genre” may be items “classic”, “jazz”, “pop”, and “ballad”, as shown in FIG. 3C (operation 204). The displayed lower-level items 330 are arranged at a lower screen portion of the screen display unit 140. At least one lower-level item may be displayed.
  • As shown in FIG. 3C and 3D, first moving bars 370 a and 370 b are also displayed at opposite sides of areas 330 a where the lower-level items 330 are displayed. Accordingly, when one of the first moving bars 370 a and 370 b is selected, an additional item 330, for example, an item “rock” (not shown), which previous has not been displayed, can be displayed.
  • When the user selects one of the displayed lower-level items 330 (operation 205), file information pieces, which correspond to the selected lower-level item 330, and having the form of images, are arranged, as shown in FIG. 3D (operation 206). The file information pieces 340 are arranged at a central screen portion of the screen display unit 140, in the form of playable thumbnails.
  • The file information pieces 340 displayed in the form of playable thumbnails, for example, file information pieces 341, 342, and 343, include respective titles 341 a, 342 a, and 343 a, and additional information 341 b, 342 b, and 343 b each including an album image and information about an artist, an album, a genre, and a preference. As shown in FIGS. 3C and 3D, the preference refers to a user's characterization of the file information, such as, “smooth” and “exciting”.
  • As shown in FIG. 3B-3D, and as referenced in FIG. 3D, second moving bars 380 a and 380 b are also displayed at opposite sides of an area where the displayed file information pieces 340 are displayed. Accordingly, when one of the second moving bars 380 a and 380 b is selected, additional file information pieces 340, which have not been previously displayed, can be displayed or come into view. For example, when the left second moving bar 380 a is selected, the displayed file information pieces 340 all move in a left direction, and previously non-displayed file information pieces 340 can be displayed on the screen display unit 140 from the right. On the other hand, when the right second moving bar 380 b is selected, the displayed file information pieces 340 all move in a right direction, and previously non-displayed file information pieces 340 can be displayed on the screen display unit 140 from the left.
  • With reference to FIGS. 4A, 4B, 5A, and 5B, the controller 130 can also change positions of displayed file information pieces 340 in accordance with a touch, drag, or stroke operations. When the user drags a selected one of the file information pieces 340, for example, a file information piece “n−1” 342, to a position of file information piece “n” 341 arranged at the right side of the file information “n−1” 342 by one column, and then drops the dragged file information piece “n−1” 342 at the position of the file information piece “n” 341, as shown in FIG. 4A, the file information piece “n−1” 342 is moved to the position previously occupied by the file information piece “n” 341, as shown in FIG. 4B.
  • On the other hand, when the user performs a stroke operation to move the file information piece “n−1” 342 to a position corresponding to a file information piece “n+2” (not shown) arranged at the right side of the selected file information piece “n−1” 342 by three columns, as shown in FIG. 5A, the file information piece “n−1” 342 is moved to the position of previously occupied by the file information piece “n+2”, and moves out of view. In this case, a file information piece “n−4” 348 will become positioned at the previous position of the file information “n−1” 342, as shown in FIG. 5B.
  • That is, when the user selects the file information piece 342 displayed as a third playable thumbnail from the right, as shown in FIG. 4A, and the file information piece 342 is moved to a central area, then the file information piece 342 is activated. Further, the file information piece 342 can again be selected and dragged from the central area to the position of the first file information piece 343. Moreover, by using a stroke operation, it is possible to rapidly move a plurality of file information pieces by relatively large amounts or many slots.
  • When the user selects a desired one of the file information pieces 341 (operation 207), the selected file information piece 341 is displayed in an activated state. At this time, the non-selected file information pieces 342 and 343 arranged adjacent to the selected file information piece 341 are displayed in an inactive or an inactivated state. Preferably, the activated file information piece 341 is displayed in an emphasized state, as compared to the inactive or inactivated file information pieces 342 and 343. In order to indicate the position of the activated file information piece within a plurality of lower level items, an indicator 360 is also displayed. In aspects of the present invention, an emphasized state includes being in an enlarged state, a changed color state, or otherwise a different state from an deemphasized state so as to distinguish ones in the emphasized state from ones that are not in the emphasized state.
  • In aspects of the present invention, the controller 130 can change the file information piece to be activated by moving the indicator 360 or the position thereof in accordance with a command input from the input unit 110. For example, where the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100 is of a touch screen type, the user can move the indicator 360 by touching (namely, selecting) and dragging the indicator 360 to a new position along a certain portion of an area (or a strip) where lower-level items 330 are arranged. Also, the user can also change the position of the indicator 360 by touching (selecting) a selected one of the displayed lower-level items 330. That is, when the user touches a certain portion of an area where lower-level items 330 are arranged, the indicator 360 is shifted to a position corresponding to the touched area portion. In aspects of the present invention, the movement and/or repositioning of the indicator 360 is performed by controlling a cursor.
  • When the position of the indicator 360 is changed in a touch or drag manner, the file information piece to be activated is also changed in accordance with the changed position of the indicator 360. That is, a file information piece corresponding to the new positioning of the indicator 360 is activated while an file information piece corresponding to the previous positioning of the indicator 360 may be inactivated.
  • Thereafter, the controller 130 determines whether the file represented by the selected file information piece is to be pre-played (operation 208). If yes, the controller 130 plays back (or reproduces) the file (operation 209). That is, the controller 130 provides a progressive bar 341 c, 342 c, or 343 c (FIG. 3D) on the selected file information piece 341, 342, or 343, to support the pre-play function. The user may click and drag on the progressive bar or an indicator thereon, to change a playback position of the file.
  • In aspects of the present invention, the user may double click the progressive bar to play back the file all over again. For the pre-play of the selected file, a corresponding and separate pre-playable file stored in the storage unit 120 may be played back. Alternatively, the actual file stored in the storage unit 120 may be played back, only for a predetermined time (for example, 15 seconds).
  • The determination of whether the selected file is to be played back is determined by whether the playback operation has been optionally set to an automatic mode or a manual mode, and determining whether a pre-play command from the user has been input if the playback operation has been set to the manual mode. In aspects of the present invention, the user may input the pre-play command, using a remote controller. Alternatively, if set to the manual mode, the user may input the pre-play command using a pre-play button provided on the selected file information piece, or by a button on the multimedia content displaying and playing apparatus 100.
  • Subsequently, the controller 130 determines whether a file stop command is input during the pre-play of the selected file (operation 210). When the file stop command is input, the controller 130 stores the stop point of the selected file in the storage unit 120 (operation 211). Preferably, the stop point includes information as to a time (or a length) for which the file was played back.
  • The controller 130 then determines whether a file return command for the play-stopped file is input. Namely, controller 130 determines whether the play-stopped file is to be again played back (operation 212). When the file return command is input, the controller 130 resumes the pre-play of the file, resuming from the stop point (operation 213).
  • That is, when the pre-play of one file is stopped for the playback of another file, and the file return command is subsequently input during the playback of the another (latter) file, to activate the former file, in order to resume the pre-play of the one file (former) file, the controller 130 retrieves the stop point of the former file, and plays back the former file, resuming from the stop point.
