An information recording medium includes a lead-in area and a data area for storing contents information. The lead-in area includes a first lead-in information area and a second lead-in information area. The first lead-in information area corresponds to a first playback mode. The second lead-in information area corresponds to a second playback mode different from the first playback mode. The first lead-in information area has a first depth and is designed for storing lead-in information related to the contents information stored in the data area. The second lead-in information area includes pre-pits having a second depth greater than the first depth. The pre-pits represent predetermined information, such as information of copyright protection, related to the contents information stored in the data area.

In a headphone set, a speaker is enclosed in a housing. A cord is connected to the speaker at one end and running to the outside of the housing at another end through a pulling-out portion of the housing. The cord is inserted into a bushing at the pulling-out portion. An outer-shape expansion portion is fixed to the cord and located between the speaker and the bushing. The outer-shape expansion portion expands the outer shape of the cord. A concavity is provided to the bushing at one end of the bushing closer to the speaker. At least a portion of the outer-shape expansion portion is put in the concavity.


A pseudo 3D image generation device includes frame memories that store a plurality of basic depth models used for estimating depth data based on a non-3D image signal and generating a pseudo 3D image signal; a depth model combination unit that combines the plurality of basic depth models for generating a composite depth model based on a control signal indicating composite percentages for combining the plurality of basic depth models; an addition unit that generates depth estimation data from the non-3D image signal and the composite depth models; and a texture shift unit that shifts the texture of the non-3D image for generating the pseudo 3D image signal.

A thumbnail generating apparatus includes a moving image extracting portion, a reduction and enlargement ratio calculating portion and a reducing and enlarging unit. The moving image extracting portion extracts a moving image corresponding to a period shorter than a reproduction time of moving image based on the number and area of face detection regions obtained from face detection information generated by detecting a face of person included in the moving image. The reduction and enlargement ratio calculating portion integrates the face detection regions at intervals of certain time based on the face detection information of the moving image extracted by the moving image extracting portion, and calculates a reduction and enlargement ratio of the moving image based on the integration result such that a face of person included in the moving image extracted by the moving image extracting portion is largely displayed. The reducing and enlarging unit reduces or enlarges the moving image extracted by the moving image extracting portion based on the reduction and enlargement ratio calculated by the reduction and enlargement ratio calculating portion to generate a moving image thumbnail


In an automatic tracking process using an aim color, a technique of allowing an observer to confirm the aim color set in the imaging device with ease is provided. An image display device using this technique has a display control unit 211 configured to input video signals obtained as a result of a tracking process using an aim color and color information showing the aim color, the video signals and the color information being generated from an imaging device, and also configured to combine an image based on the video signals with an image based on the color information, and a tracked object indicating unit 212 configured to accept an indication against an object to be tracked in the tracking process, from an outside.

In an LED unit (34) of a backlight device (20), LEDs (38) are placed side by side at intervals of first placement interval P1. The LED unit (34) are installed in a flexible substrate (32) with a space of a second placement interval P2 apart from the flexible substrate (32). A light guide plate (22) is arranged such that an end face of the light guide plate (22) is spaced apart from the LEDs (38) by a distance H. The light guide plate (22) is so arranged as to meet a condition that P1HP2. Specifically, a plurality of LEDs (38) are placed side by side such that P1 is in a range of 0.1 mm to 3 mm and P2 in a range of 5 mm and 15 mm. The light guide plate (22) is arranged such that that H is in a range of 1 mm to 7 mm.

Video data pieces are classified into groups according to prescribed rules. A cut number assigned to each of the groups is decided on the basis of the length or lengths of a video data piece or pieces in each of the groups and the number of the video data piece or pieces in each of the groups. A cut or cuts are extracted from the video data piece or pieces in each of the groups. Regarding each of the groups, the number of the extracted cut or cuts is equal to the decided cut number. Digest data is generated from the extracted cuts for all the groups.
