  • Publication number: 20210235023
    Abstract: This image-capturing support device (300) includes: a display control unit (302) which generates a guidance image for guiding an operator so that a current image-capturing position and a current image-capturing direction of a camera (200) are the same as those in the past by using a previously captured image captured by the camera (200) and past position information about the camera (200) when the image has been captured, and a currently captured image and current position information about the camera (200); and a display unit (303) which displays an image including the generated guidance image.

  • Publication number: 20050220309
    Abstract: In a recording unit, a set state table in which various parameters which are required are stored when a sound processing unit performs signal processing for audio data that corresponds to each channel, and a setting screen data are recorded. This setting screen data is linked to the set state table, so that the set state table is altered in accordance with alteration performed on this setting screen. As a result, the parameters that are used when the sound processing unit performs signal processing for audio data are altered.
