Next, in an environment that is shown in the system structural diagram of the foregoing, it will be described information guidance system of this embodiment.

<To create a capture data>
In digital television systems 61 of the user of the information guidance system, a digital content video aired provided by means such as broadcast reception and a DVD from a digital content provider on the monitor screen 64a of the digital television 64, the sequence of video data There is displayed together with the audio and subtitles.

Therefore, the user, if you want to use the information guidance system, wherein to drive the browser software, to identify the digital content for viewing. During the viewing of the digital content (in this case, the whole body image of women OL style) scene in which the desired item is displayed in, the designation button that capture data creation command is allocated to switch operation.

Thus, to take a capture file creation function, a still image of the digital image data corresponding to a desired scene, the item information stored in the digital image data corresponding to the scene, and extracts the source and since the digital content data and it captures information about the frame number of the scene, further information relating to the digital content data this data becomes stored date and extraction source, i.e., are collectively video ID and frame number, a unique file name is automatically granted, it is possible to save as a capture data to the list file.

Incidentally, list file storage unit in the user information acquisition system (e.g., a home server) is stored in. This list file can be viewable on the Internet, for example, between the user of the information guidance system, it may be arbitrarily selected users to be interchangeable captured data. At that time, those relating to the content data with copy restrictions (number of times) from the supply source, so that work is its limit.

Here, in FIG. 7 illustrates a management example of the capture data (scene search data same).

Capture data, the user is managed in the list in a file for each video you watched. That is, each captured data is a single record. Each record of the still image corresponding to a desired scene "digital image data", "frame number", the capture file creation command is selected, "time", and a data such as "Item Information". One or a plurality of records, at the time of capture, will be accumulated in a new folder before storage, by selecting instructions to save the screen or the like after creation, the folder name is managed granted to this folder . When one folder is stored, when the next capture is performed, also as another folder is prepared. For example, prior to the viewing of a single DVD, and save the folder to capture data (record) is stored, which accumulated taken already, to prepare a new folder. Then, create a capture data while watching the DVD, at the end of the viewing of the DVD, the captured data accumulated take to this new folder, managed by the folder name of the title name of the DVD. The folder name after the automatic grant, to be able to change to any name.

<To display the captured data (search scene data)>
Saved captured data is, by switch operation designation button the file sequence command allocated, to execute the file array mechanism viewing software, the digital image data (the embodiment which is extracted for each the said capture data can be displayed browsable arranged on the screen of the monitor a still image) in the desired mode (partial sequence mode full screen sequence mode).

In the present embodiment, the mode, full screen sequence mode and displays (vertical 3 × horizontal 3 in FIG. 8) the digital image data arranged in a matrix the same size and accumulated on the whole surface of the monitor screen 64a (see FIG. 8), (or the digital image data selected, moving images) particular image reflects the main region, partial sequence mode for displaying the stored digital image data in a partial area of ​​the main area aside ( and see FIG. 9), which can be switched each time the thrust through the designation button.

In each mode, the are tags for each folder (index) sheet screen attached displays are laminated, while pointing tags folder to be displayed in the direction button, operating the enter button in, and can be switched so as to display the sheet screen of the folder to the front (see FIGS. 8 and 9).

Further, the image list displaying digital image data captured, the file name or the digital content data becomes extraction source, time captured, also possible to display a search term such as attached to the item of 該場 surface good. By providing these information to the user, because the search such as the necessary information is simplified. For example, in the case where the item information has captured the scene of items that are not assigned the time and capture, but information for identifying the digital content data and the frame number is displayed on the monitor, the display for item information not. Thus, it becomes possible to use the delete function of the browser software, to remove the unnecessary capture data.

Incidentally, when the number of accumulated captured data is often, or to sort the order of the sequence in chronological order of capture can be displayed narrow search at a given search term. Of these, search and sort the list in a file, you can either search the folder that is currently being accessed (folder search), not only in one folder, you can search all the folders in the list file (list file as in the inner search), it allows you to specify the scope of the search. Further, if it can not display the captured data arranged in one screen, the sequence by scrolling to display the desired digital image data.

Then, for the desired image selected from the digital image data arranged displayed, the digital image data while pointing in the direction buttons, by operating the determination button, the monitor screen entirely in full screen sequence mode is displayed, the partial sequences mode so as to be displayed on the main area. Also the same as the method of viewing the capture data when viewing the search scene data.

<To access the detailed information of the item>
If you want to get more information about the items contained in the digital image data, the user the cursor is on an item that exists in the image shown on the monitor screen 64a while pointing, designated allocated to detailed information browsing command button the switch operation.

This makes it possible to perform a detailed information browsing function of browsing software is granted to the item, based on the address information stored in the list file, via the network 10 from LAN68, the item provider is the details connect to the site of each item managed by the server 32, to allow viewing the site.
