  • Publication number: 20060093224
    Abstract: A network camera (image capturing apparatus) extracts an image of a monitoring area and an image of a watch area from a captured image that is output from an image capturing device, and changes the size of each of the images by a scaler, thereby generating a whole image and a watch image each having a predetermined image size. JPEG data obtained by encoding an integrated image obtained by integrating the whole image and the watch image in accordance with the JPEG method is distributed to a network. A terminal which acquires the JPEG data via the network decodes the JPEG data and displays the whole image and the watch image on a display. As a result, convenience in distribution of a captured image can be improved.
