[0043] 如上所述,数据和/或图像可以按多种不同格式从用户的计算机发送到设备14。 [0043] As described above, data and / or images in many different formats can be sent from a user's computer to the device 14. 例如,对应于用户的计算机上的显示器外观的图像文件(截屏或刮屏)可以发送到设备14。 For example, corresponds to the appearance of the user's computer monitor image files (screenshots or scratch the screen) can be sent to the device 14. 如果需要的话,图像数据也可以使用降低的传输带宽量按其他格式传输。 If desired, the image data may be used to reduce the amount of transmission bandwidth of the transmission by other formats.

[0044] 应注意,在某些实施例中,用户的计算机可以直接发送图像数据到图像提供设备 [0044] It should be noted that in some embodiments, the user's computer can send images directly to the image data providing device

14。 14. 可选地,用户计算机可以发送包括统一资源识别符(URI)的数据到图像提供设备14,指示设备14到适当的位置取得所需图像/演示。 Alternatively, users can send computer comprises a uniform resource identifier (URI) to the image data providing device 14, pointing device 14 to an appropriate position to achieve the desired image / demonstration.

[0045] 如上所述,有线网卡也可以插入图像接收器内。 [0045] As described above, the wired network card can be inserted in the image receiver. 应理解,有线网卡也可以永久集成在图像提供设备14中而不偏离本发明的范围。 It should be understood, to be permanently wired LAN integration provides device 14 without departing from the scope of the present invention in an image.

[0046] 图4中展示了一个示例网络环境。 [0046] FIG. 4 shows an example network environment. 如所示,图像提供设备14可以通过有线和/或无线网卡直接与LAN 74连接。 As shown, the image providing device 14 may be connected directly to the LAN 74 through a wired and / or wireless cards. 图像提供设备14还可以通过LAN 74链接到第二LAN 76和/或WAN 78,如因特网。 Picture providing apparatus 14 via LAN 74 may also be linked to the second LAN 76 and / or WAN 78, such as the Internet. 图像提供设备14还可以通过LAN 74连接到远程服务器80或用户设备82。 Picture providing apparatus 14 may also be connected to a remote server 80 or user equipment 82 via LAN 74. 这样的配置可以允许用户从远程位置在图像投影机12上运行演示。 This configuration allows users to run presentations from a remote location on the image projector 12.

[0047] 应注意,图像提供设备14可以是小型和便携式的。 [0047] It should be noted, the image providing device 14 may be small and portable. 通常,图像提供设备14可以比常规的膝上型计算机小得多且轻得多。 Typically, the image providing device 14 may be, and much lighter than conventional smaller laptop. 此外,图像提供设备14不需要用户输入设备,如键盘或鼠标(虽然如果需要也可以包括)。 Further, the image providing device 14 does not require a user input device, such as a keyboard or mouse (although if desired also included). 该设备可以是配置为从第一个来源自动提供(render)和发送图像到图像投影机进行显示的自动提供引擎(rendering engine)。 The device may be configured to automatically provide the first source (render) and send images to the projector for display of the image is automatically provided engine (rendering engine).

[0048] 如上所述,用户界面可以与系统一起使用来使用户能够执行各种如传输和投影图像的功能。 [0048] As described above, the user interface can be used together with the system to enable users to perform a variety of transmission and the projected image features such as. 前面描述了一个示例用户界面,但各种其他用户界面也可以使用。 The foregoing describes an example of a user interface, but a variety of other user interface can also be used. 一个这样的可选具体用户界面可以具有下面的组件:安装程序、演示者管理器、投影机管理器、卸载程序以及联机帮助文档。 One such alternative specific user interface may have the following components: Setup, presenter manager, projector manager, uninstaller, and online help documentation.

[0049] 安装程序可以用于指导用户安装使用演示者模块所需的软件,演示者模块控制例如通过无线网络从用户的计算机向投影机给出演示这样的操作。 [0049] The installer can be used to guide the user to install the required software modules presenter presenter module controls, for example to give this operation demonstrates the wireless network from the user's computer to the projector. 安装程序还允许用户识别希望安装软件的目录、选择是否需要桌面快捷方式以及当安装结束时是否自动启动用户手册和演示者管理器应用。 The installer also allows the user to identify the directory you want to install the software, choose whether you want a desktop shortcut and whether to automatically start the user manual and presenter manager application when the installation is complete. 安装程序还提供对所提供的任何无线PC卡的测试。 Setup also provides test any wireless PC card to offer.

[0050] 演示者管理器组件允许用户在范围中选择投影机、启动和停止投影以及设置首选项。 [0050] Presenter Manager component allows the user to select the projector, start and stop the projector and set your preferences in range. 演示者管理器组件还允许用户调整演示者模块的设置-例如,重命名演示者模块和演示者模块的网络,指定演示者模块的IP地址(如果需要的话)和/或将演示者模块的设置重置为出厂缺省设置。 Presenter Manager component also allows the user to adjust the settings presenter modules - for example, rename the network Presenter module and presenters modules, designated presenter module IP address (if necessary) and / or set the presenter module reset to factory default settings. 该组件可以与演示者软件分离-例如,它可以在演示者安装⑶上。 This component can be separated from the presenter software - for example, it can be on the presenter ⑶ installation.

[0051] 卸载程序允许用户容易地卸载演示者软件。 [0051] uninstaller allows users to easily uninstall the software presenter.

[0052] 联机帮助文档可以向用户提供对联机帮助的便捷访问。 [0052] The online Help provides easy access to online help to users.

[0053] 现更详细地说明演示者管理器,当用户启动在其计算机上工作的演示者管理器时,例如,可以按如图5所示的正常视图打开窗口。 [0053] The presenter will now be described in more detail Manager, when users start working on their computers presenter manager, for example, you can open the window normal view shown in Figure 5. 在启动之后,演示者管理器可以取得用户当前的无线局域网(WLAN)设置的快照,并使用在当前WLAN中发现的投影机和/或图像提供设备以及使用过(MRU,或“最近使用”)的最后五个图像提供设备来填充投影机列表。 After the start, the presenter manager can obtain the user's current wireless LAN (WLAN) provided a snapshot, and use found in the current WLAN in the projector and / or image providing device and used (MRU, or "most recently used") The last five images provide a list of equipment to fill the projector. 可以按任何适合的方式发现当前WLAN上的投影机。 The projector can be found on the current WLAN in any suitable manner. 发现WLAN上的投影的适合方式包括,但不限于,监视投影机和/或图像提供设备配置为向其发送公告消息或“信标”的WLAN上的多播地址,公告其出现和/或可用性;和/或接收广播或单播信标。 Projection find suitable manner on the WLAN include, but are not limited to, monitor the projector and / or image device configured to provide multicast addresses to send its announcement message or a "beacon" of WLAN on the announcement of the presence and / or availability ; and / or receive broadcast or unicast beacons. 注意,虽然在此例子中包括使用过的最后五个设备,但这只是例子,且可以列出更多或更少(或不列出)最后或先前使用的设备。 Note that although in this example includes the use of over the last five devices, but this is only an example, and can list more or less (or not listed) last or previously used equipment. 下面参考图10提供演示者管理器操作的更多细节。 Referring now to Figure 10 for more details of the operation of the presenter manager.

[0054] 如图5所示,投影机列表可以有三栏:投影机、ID编号和状态。 [0054] Figure 5, the projector can list has three columns: the projector for, ID number and status. 通过缺省,用状态进行主排序,而用投影机名称进行次级排序,虽然如果需要的话也可以使用其他排序方法。 By default, the primary sort by state, but with the projector names secondary sort, although if required, can also use other sorting method. 通过缺省高亮显示列表中第一个可用的投影机;而如果列表中没有可用的投影机,则缺省高亮显示第一个未知投影机。 It displays a list of the first available projector highlighted by default; if not in the list of available projector, the default highlight the first unknown projector. 用户可以通过例如按压上/下箭头键或用鼠标来移动高亮显示条。 Users can, for example up / down arrow keys or the mouse to move the highlight bar is pressed. 虽然所示实施例包括投影机的列表,应理解,在列表中可以包括其他类型的图像显示设备。 Although the embodiment shown includes a list of the projector, it should be understood that the list may include other types of image display apparatus. 其他类型的图像显示设备的例子包括,但不限于,背投显示设备。 Examples of other types of image display devices include, but are not limited to, rear-projection display device.

[0055] 状态栏指示每个投影机是可用的、在使用的,还是未知的,虽然也可以使用其他识别符,或只使用单个识别符。 [0055] The status bar indicates that each projector is available, in use, is unknown, although you can also use other identifiers, or use only a single identifier. 如果投影机在使用,则可以灰显其名称(除非它是用户当前正在使用的投影机)。 If the projector is in use, it can be dimmed name (unless it is a user is currently using the projector). 如果在列表中只有一个可用投影机,则可以通过缺省选择它。 If there is only one available projectors in the list, you can select it by default. 如果投影机是例如使用过的最后五个投影机之一但不在当前WLAN上,则其状态可以是未知。 One of the last five projector If the projector is used, for example, but not on the WLAN, the current status may be unknown.

[0056] 当不再收到信标且WLAN设置和最后检查时相同,并且连接到该投影机的尝试已失败时,可以从列表中移除该投影机。 [0056] When you no longer receive the beacon and the same WLAN settings and final inspection, and is connected to the projector when attempts have failed, you can remove the projector from the list. 否则,将投影机留在列表中并显示为未知。 Otherwise, leave the projector in the list and displayed as unknown. 然而,用户也可以从列表中手动移除投影机。 However, the user can also manually remove the projector from the list.

[0057] 注意,监听信标和基于信标对列表添加/移除设备时,可能存在问题。 [0057] Note that listens beacons and beacon-based list add / remove a device, there may be a problem. 例如,太短的值可能导致投影机在瞬间进出该列表。 For example, the value is too short may cause the projector at the moment out of the list. 或者,太长的值可能导致不准确的状态。 Alternatively, a value may lead to inaccurate long state. 因此,在一个例子中,监听信标的时间在基于PC的设备上可以设置为约五个信标间隔(即,信标接收之间的时间),而在基于Mac的设备上该值可以设置为约九个信标间隔,以获得所需的性能。 Thus, in one example, listen for beacons on PC-based device can be set to about five beacon interval (ie, the time between beacon reception), and based on the value of the device can be set to Mac about nine beacon interval to obtain the desired properties. 然而,在可选实施例中,相同的监听时间可用于所有设备。 However, in an alternative embodiment, the same monitor time can be used for all devices. 也可以将这些值添加到PC上的注册表及Mac上的首选项文件中,这样,具有不同天线和在不同环境中的用户可以调整这些值来适应他们的需要。 You can also add these values to the registry and preference files on your Mac on a PC, so with different antennas and users in different environments can adjust these values to suit their needs.

[0058] 在一个例子中,可以基于设备是否被成功使用来更新最近或先前使用过的设备的MRU列表。 [0058] In one example, it may be based on whether the device has been successfully used to update the MRU list of recent or previously used equipment. 如果是,则可以将其添加到列表。 If so, you can add it to the list. 此外,如果WLAN相同且没有检测到信标,则设备可以保留在列表中并被指示为未知状态。 In addition, if the same WLAN without detecting a beacon, the device can remain in the list and is indicated as an unknown state. 如果用户试图连接它而它不可用,则显示错误,然后可以从MRU列表中移除该投影机。 If a user tries to connect to it and it is not available, an error, then you can remove the projector from the MRU list.

[0059] 如果选择了可用或未知的投影机,则图中的“投影(P)”按钮可以是缺省按钮。 [0059] If you select a projector is available or unknown, the figure "projection (P)" button is the default button. 如果没有发现投影机或设备,或如果没有已选择的投影机或设备,则可以禁用“投影”按钮。 If you do not find the projector or device, or if there is no projector or device has been selected, you can disable the "projection" button. 注意,在此例中,用户只可以选择可用的或未知的投影机;正在使用的投影机出现在列表中但却被灰显。 Note that in this example, the user can select only the available projectors or unknown; but it is grayed out you are using the projector appears in the list.

[0060] 当用户选择可用的投影机并点击“投影”按钮(或按下回车键)时,刮屏应用启动。 [0060] When the user selects an available projector and click the "projection" button (or press Enter), scraping screen application starts. 当刮屏应用已启动(即,在投影的图像中提供(render)用户的桌面)时,该按钮切换为“停止(P)”,且选定的投影机或设备的状态转变为指示它为在使用中。 When the application is started scraping the screen (that is, to provide (render) the user's desktop in the projected image), the button is switched to "stop (P)", and the selected projector or device status changes to indicate that it is in use. 然而与其他人正在使用的投影机被灰显是不相同的,用户正在使用的投影机并不被灰显。 However, others are using the projector is grayed out is not the same, the user is using the projector are not grayed out.

[0061] 如果点击“投影”按钮和投影图像的出现之间存在延时,则用户可以看到某些表明软件正在对按下按钮做出响应的可视反馈。 [0061] If you click on the "projection" button appears between the delay and the projected image, the user can see some shows that software is to press a button to make a visual feedback responses. 如果延时只有两秒钟,则保持按下“投影”按钮达一秒钟可以向用户给出表明正在进行处理的反馈且可以防止他们再次点击该按钮。 If the delay is only two seconds, then hold down the "projection" button for one second to show that the user is given the ongoing process of feedback and can prevent them from clicking the button again. 如果延时长于两秒,则可以提供某些其他反馈-例如,可以使用屏幕右下角的文本,表明“正在建立无线链接。请等待”。 If the delay is longer than two seconds, you can provide some additional feedback - for example, you can use the lower-right corner of the screen text, "being to establish a wireless link, please wait.."

[0062] 如果用户选择具有“未知”状态的投影机并点击“投影”按钮,则可以提供警告对话框以通知用户当前的网络活动已中断同时程序查找可用的设备或投影机,且用户应关闭任何使用网络上的文件的应用。 [0062] If the user selects with the "unknown" state of the projector and click the "projection" button, you can provide a warning dialog box to notify the user's current network activity has been interrupted while the program is to find an available device or projector, and the user should close applications for use on any network file. 完毕后,关闭对话框并使用可用于指示搜索进度的进度对话框来代替它。 After completion, close the dialog and use to indicate the progress of the search progress dialog to replace it.

[0063] 然后可能发生三种情况之一(在用户选择其状态为未知的投影机或设备时):(1)不能找到投影机或设备(如,它超出范围或已关闭),这会产生如图6所示的警告对话框, (When the user selects its status is unknown projector or device) [0063] and then possibly one of the three happened :( 1) can not find the projector or device (such as it is out of range or turned off), it will produce a warning dialog box shown in Figure 6,

(2)找到投影机但它正在使用中,这会产生如图7所示的警告对话框,或(3)发现可用的投影机,且将用户的桌面的内容(或某些其他选定的文件)投影到屏幕上。 (2) Locate the projector, but it is in use, it will produce a dialog box shown in Figure warnings, or (3) find available projector, and the contents of the user's desktop (or some other selected File) projected onto the screen.

[0064] 可以启用“扫描(S) ”按钮,除非用户当前正在投影。 [0064] to enable the "Scan (S)" button, unless the user is currently being projected. 点击“扫描”按钮也可能会出现一个警告对话框,接下来是上述的进度对话框。 Click the "Scan" button is also a warning dialog box may appear, followed by the above-mentioned progress dialog. 如果找到了多个演示者可用的投影机或设备,也可以将它们显示在列表上。 If you find a projector or equipment available to multiple presenters, they can also be displayed on the list. 如果没有找到多个演示者可用的投影机或设备,则可以用表明没有找到多个演示者可用的投影机或设备的对话框来代替进度对话框。 If you do not find the projector or device multiple presenters available, you can use the show did not find more than one presenter projector or equipment available to replace the progress dialog box.

[0065] 当选定了可用的投影机或设备,或用户正在使用投影机或设备时,可以启用“设置(t)...”按钮。 [0065] When the selected projector or device available, or the user is using a projector or device, you can enable the "Settings (t) ..." button. 点击该按钮将打开设置对话框,这允许用户调整各种设置,例如:演示者名称、网络名称,及IP地址(用户可以选择自动获得IP地址或指定IP地址、网络掩码和网关)。 Click this button to open the Settings dialog box, which allows the user to adjust various settings, such as: the presenter name, network name, and IP address (the user can choose to automatically obtain IP address, or specify the IP address, network mask, and gateway). 也可以将演示者模块的MAC地址作为只读信息提供。 MAC address is also the presenter module can be provided as a read-only information. 在投影时“设置...”按钮仍然可用,但是设置对话框的所有内容都是只读的以便防止中断演示。 When the projector "Settings ..." button is still available, but the setup dialog box all contents are read-only in order to prevent disruption presentation. 也可以提供诊断选项卡,允许用户闪烁投影机上的或图像提供设备上的LED 30来校验正确的链接,和/或恢复出厂设置。 It can also provide diagnostics tab that allows users to flicker on the projector or images provide LED device 30 to verify the correct link, and / or restore the factory settings. 诊断选项卡还可以展示投影机或设备上的LED位置,如在图像提供设备上。 Diagnostics tab can also show the position of the projector or LED on the device, as provided in the image on the device.

[0066] 同时,可以通过设置对话框设置和使用密码。 [0066] At the same time, you can set a password dialog box to set up and use. 用户不一定要设置密码,且没有密码时缺省。 Users do not have to set a password, default and no password. 然而,任何用户都可以选择和改变图像提供设备模块的设置。 However, any user can select and change the image setting equipment modules provided. 如果用户担心其他人改变演示者模块的设置,她/他可以用密码来保护设置。 If you worry about other people changing the settings presenter module, she / he can use a password to protect settings. 为了设置密码,用户点击设置对话框中的按钮,密码对话框出现,该密码对话框允许用户设置和确认密码。 To set a password, the user clicks the button in the Settings dialog box, password dialog box appears, the password dialog box allows the user to set and confirm a password. 如果设置了密码,则下一次用户打开设置对话框时,所有设置和控制都是只读的,且需要有密码才能做出更改。 If you set a password, the next time the user opens the Settings dialog, all settings and controls are read-only, and requires a password to make changes. 如果用户只是更改图像提供设备模块的名称,则用户仍然可以和图像提供设备模块通信。 If you just change the image to provide the name of the device module, the user can still provide equipment modules and image communications. 如果用户在更改名称时正在投影,则投影继续且该名称在列表中更新。 If you change the name when being projected, the projection continues and the name of the update in the list. 如果用户没有在投影,则闪屏可以用新名称更新自身,且该名称也可以在投影机管理器列表中更新。 If the user does not have the projection, the splash screen can update itself with the new name, and the name can also be updated in the projector Manager list.

[0067] 如果用户点击正常视图中的“显示首选项”按钮,则窗口可以扩展且该按钮切换为“隐藏首选项”。 [0067] If the user clicks the normal view "Display Preferences" button, the window can be extended and the button to switch to the "hidden preferences." 例如,扩展的视图可以让用户能够访问特定应用的首选项。 For example, the expansion of view allows the user to access specific applications preferences. “显示/隐藏首选项(e)”按钮可以一直启用,然而,当用户正在投影时,投影期间不能更改的首选项仍然是被禁用的。 "Show / Hide Preferences (e)" button has been enabled, however, when a user is projected preferences can not be changed during the projection it is still disabled. 图8展示演示者管理器的例子扩展窗口。 Figure 8 shows an example of the presenter extended window manager.

[0068] 分辨率滑标可以提供三个或多个刻度(或更少,如果需要的话)。 [0068] Resolution slider scale can provide three or more (or less if required). 下表中的文本可以出现在工具提示中,工具提示出现在每个刻度线上: Text in the following table may appear in a tooltip, tooltips appear in every ticks:

[0070] 滑标头可以缺省任何刻度,如中间刻度。 [0070] slip header may default any scale, such as the middle of the scale. 用户然后可以通过按下Ctrl-R移动输入焦点到分辨率滑块,并使用键盘上的左右箭头键或使用鼠标来前后移动滑块头。 Users can then enter by pressing Ctrl-R to move the focus to the resolution slider and use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard or use the mouse to move the slider head around. 当用户投影时,分辨率滑标上的选择被激活,且当用户停止投影时,可以恢复用户原先的显示分辨率设置(如果不同的话)。 When the user of the projector, select the resolution slider on is activated, and when the user stops the projector, the user can restore the original display resolution settings (if different). 无论何时桌面显示正要改变用户当前的显示设置,当用户点击“投影”按钮时,警告对话框都可以出现。 Whenever a user's current desktop display about change display settings, when the user clicks "projection" button, a warning dialog box may appear. 例如,如果用户的系统处于不支持的分辨率(如,1400 X 5200),或如果用户已更改滑标上的选择并且现在不同于用户的当前显示设置时,警告对话框可以出现。 For example, if the user's system is not supported resolution (eg, 1400 X 5200), if the user has to change the selection on the slider and is now different from the user's current display settings or warning dialog box appears.

[0071] 继续图8,复选框“列出我使用过的最后5个投影机”的缺省状态是选中。 [0071] Continuing with Figure 8, the check box "lists I used the last five projectors," the default state is selected. 如果用户取消选中此框,则使用过的最后5个投影机-不在当前WLAN上且当前未被使用-可以从列表中移除。 If you uncheck this box, we used the last five projectors - not on the current WLAN and is currently not in use - can be removed from the list. 也展示了各种其他缺省的选中的框,它们都可以由用户取消选中。 Also shows various other default checked box, they can uncheck by the user.

[0072] 虽然图5到图8和对应的说明已描述了例子用户界面的部分,但是也可以使用各种其他方法。 [0072] Although FIG. 5 to FIG. 8 and corresponding description has been described an example of a user interface portion, but also a variety of other methods may be used. 例如,也可以提供适用于Mac系统的界面。 For example, it can provide an interface for Mac systems. 可以使用的例子改变有:系统可以对任何应用自动提供包括“显示信息”特性的菜单栏;系统可以利用其他特性,如表对话框,系统可以使用典型控件的不同替代,或系统可以使用鼠标右键特性。 Examples of change can be used are: the system can automatically provide, including "Show Info" feature on the menu bar of any application; the system can take advantage of other features, such as Table dialog box, the system may use a different alternative to the typical controls, or the system can use the right mouse button characteristics.

[0073] 现参考图9,描述了示例快闪屏幕,或闪屏。 [0073] Referring now to FIG. 9, depicts an example of flash screen, or splash screen. 闪屏可以是出现在屏幕右上角(或其他区域)的小的或大的窗口。 Splash screen may be appear in the top right corner of the screen (or other area) small or large windows. 闪屏可以包含一个或多个下面的字段,或其组合: Splash screen may contain one or more of the following fields, or a combination thereof:

[0074] 名称:演示者投影机名称; [0074] Title: Presenter Projector name;

[0075] 唯一ID:演示者唯一ID (可以从MAC地址衍生得到); [0075] unique ID: Presenter unique ID (can be derived from the MAC address);

[0076] WLAN:演示者网络名称; [0076] WLAN: Presenter network name;

[0077] 型号:投影机型号; [0077] Model: Projector Model;

[0078] 版本:1.0.χ.χ(可以为浅灰色); [0078] Edition: 1.0.χ.χ (for light gray);

[0079] IP地址(可以为浅灰色)。 [0079] IP address (may be light gray).

[0080] 注意,可以在启动时执行USB测试,检查USB通信的存在。 [0080] Note that you can perform USB test at startup, check the presence of USB communication. 如果没有找到,则可以使用星号来指示。 If not, you can use an asterisk to indicate.

[0081] 演示者闪屏可以在各种操作条件下出现,如当投影机加电时,当Ml连接器是所述来源时、当连接了演示者模块时和/或这些条件的组合。 [0081] presenter splash screen may appear under a variety of operating conditions, such as when the projector is powered on, when the connector is the source of Ml, when connected combinations presenter modules and / or these conditions. 闪屏可以是三十二个字符长来容纳描述符而每个字段为二十个字符,虽然可以使用更小或更大的值。 Splash screen can be thirty-two characters long to accommodate the descriptor and each field is twenty characters, although you can use a smaller or larger value. 同样,如果需要,可以在标题栏区域中包括最新的徽标和配色方案。 Also, if desired, may include new logo and color scheme in the title bar area. 如果需要,字段字符可以是粗体或斜体的。 If necessary, field character may be bold or italic.

[0082] 可以通过闪屏用和上述相同的边框和字体显示各种其他消息。 [0082] and above can use the same border and font display various other messages by the splash screen. 然而,如果需要,灰度和标题栏可以移除。 However, if desired, the gray and the title bar can be removed. 例如,下面的消息可以由服务器生成并显示:验证(如,当图形并非由服务器生成,如果选中了安全框且用户尝试投影时);未发现无线电;WEP不兼容(如,当设备不支持WEP且试图加入支持WEP的SSID时);和/或升级温度计(并非由服务器生成)。 For example, the following message may be generated by the server and display: validation (such as when the graphics are not generated by the server, if you select the security box and when the user attempts projection); No radio; WEP is not compatible (eg, when the device does not support WEP and an attempt at adding support for WEP SSID); and / or upgrade thermometer (not generated by the server).

[0083] 现参考图10,描述用于选择和投影的例子用户界面例程的流程图。 [0083] Referring now to Figure 10, a flow diagram for selecting and projection example of a user interface routine described.

[0084] 首先,框1001表示用户启动管理器子例程(如本文中上述的投影机管理器),它取得用户的当前无线局域网(WLAN)设置的快照。 [0084] First, block 1001 indicates that the user boot manager subroutine (as herein above projector manager), which has made the user's current wireless local area network (WLAN) to set the snapshot. 然后,在框1002中,用户使用过的最后五个投影机或设备,和当前在WLAN上投影机,出现在识别出的可用投影机或设备的列表中。 Then, in block 1002, the user uses the projector over the last five or equipment, and is currently on the WLAN projectors appear in the list of recognized available projector or device. 一个例子列表在本文中前面参考图8展示和描述。 An example of the list earlier in this article shown and described with reference to FIG. 接下来,在框1003,用户确定所需投影机是否在该列表中。 Next, at block 1003, required the user to determine whether the projector is in the list. 此确定可以基于对列表中的名称和ID编号与由所需设备投影(如通过闪屏)的信息之间的比较。 This determination may be based on a comparison between the list of names and ID number and the information from the desired projection equipment (such as through the splash screen) a.

[0085] 如果所需投影机(或其他设备)在列表中,则在框1004,用户可以基于显示在该列表中的信息确定所需投影机或设备是否可用。 [0085] If desired projector (or other device) in the list, then in block 1004, the user can determine the required equipment is available projectors or displays in the list based on the information. 如果所需投影机或设备不可用,则用户可以进入框1005。 If the projector or device you want is not available, the user can proceed to block 1005. 或者,如果它可用,则用户可以进入框1006来高亮显示所需和可用的设备,然后点击“投影”按钮。 Or, if it is available, the user can proceed to block 1006 to highlight the desired and available devices, and then click on the "Projection" button. 然后,可以如在本文中下面参考框1014所述的那样通过设备投影用户的桌面。 You can then reference frame as in the following article that projection device user's desktop through 1014 said.

[0086] 在框1005,用户可以确定所需的投影机是否在使用(例如,另一个用户当前正在发送和投影)。 [0086] In block 1005, the user can determine the required projector is in use (for example, another user is currently sending and projection). 如果否,则设备可能是未知设备,然后用户进入框1007。 If not, the device may be unknown device, then the user proceeds to block 1007. 或者,如果该设备在使用,则用户可以进入框1008。 Alternatively, if the device is in use, the user can proceed to block 1008. 在框1008,投影机在列表中被灰显,且用户不能选择该设备。 At block 1008, the projector is grayed out in the list, and the user can not select it.

[0087] 或者,在框1007,所需投影机具有未知状态,且用户可以高亮显示该投影机以尝试投影图像到其上。 [0087] Alternatively, at block 1007, the desired projector has an unknown state, and the user can highlight the projector to attempt the projected image to it. 然后,在框1009,界面指示是否可以检测到该未知投影机可能联网的其他无线局域网。 Then, at block 1009, the interface indicates whether you can detect other wireless LAN The projector may be networked unknown. 如果是,则在框1010,用警告提醒用户可能存在临时的网络断线。 If so, then at block 1010, with warnings alert you to potential temporary network disconnection. 然后,在框1011,用户界面确定未知投影机是否在范围内。 Then, at block 1011, the user interface to determine whether the unknown in the range of the projector. 如果否,则在框1012,用户界面向用户提供警告,表明所需投影机或者超出范围或者已关闭。 If not, at block 1012, the user interface provides a warning to the user, indicating the desired projector or out of range or turned off. 或者,在框1013,用户界面确定所需投影机是否可用。 Or, at block 1013, the user interface to determine the required projector is available. 如果是,则用户可以进入框1014来投影桌面图像到该设备,然后例如该设备将其投影到屏幕上。 If so, the user can proceed to block 1014 to project your desktop image to the device, and for example, the device will be projected onto a screen. 然后,当用户已完成所需投影时,在框1015,用户可以点击停止投影并关闭应用。 Then, when the user is required to complete the projection, at block 1015, the user can click to stop the projector and close the application. 最后,在框1016中,恢复先前的WLAN设置。 Finally, at block 1016, restoring the previous WLAN settings.

[0088] 从框1013,当所需投影机不可用(如,在使用)时,在框1017,用户界面向用户提供警告,表明所需投影机在使用。 [0088] From block 1013, when the desired projector is not available (such as, in use) when, at block 1017, the user interface provides a warning to the user, indicating the desired projector in use. 从框1012或1017中的任一个,当用户点击“确定”,用户界面返回1002。 From block 1012, or any one of the 1017, when the user clicks "OK", the user interface returns 1002.

[0089] 从框1003,当所需投影机不在列表中时,用户可以进入框1018以选择“扫描”按钮。 [0089] From block 1003, when the projector is not in the list required, the user can proceed to block 1018 to select the "Scan" button. 然后,在框1019,用户界面确定是否已检测到任何其他的无线局域网。 Then, at block 1019, the user interface has been detected to determine whether any other wireless LAN. 如果否,则在框1020,用户界面向用户提供警告,指示没有其他投影机可用。 If not, at block 1020, the user interface provides a warning to the user, indicating that no other projector available. 或者,当已识别其他网络时,在框1021,用户界面向用户提供警告,指示可能有暂时的网络连接丢失。 Alternatively, when other networks have been identified, at block 1021, the user interface provides a warning to the user, indicating that there may be a temporary loss of network connectivity. 在此时,用户可以取消操作以返回框1002。 At this point, the user can cancel the operation to return to block 1002. 或者,如果用户在框1022中选择“确定”,则用户界面扫描具有选定的802.11内部基本服务集(IBSS)的对应模块。 Or, if the user selects the box 1022 "OK", the user interface scanning a selected internal 802.11 Basic Service Set (IBSS) of the corresponding module. 在可选实施例中,可以使用基本服务集(BSS)模式。 In an alternative embodiment, it is possible to use a Basic Service Set (BSS) mode. 接下来,在框1023,用户界面确定是否已检测到任何其他投影机。 Next, at block 1023, the user interface has been detected to determine whether any other projector. 如果否,则从框1020提供警告。 If not, provide a warning from the block 1020. 或者,如果是,则相反在框1024,用户可以在列表中提供其他图像提供设备。 Or, if it is, then the opposite in block 1024, the user can provide other image providing device in the list.

[0090] 上述用户界面可以提供多个用户通过简单易用的界面有效地利用多个投影系统的方式。 [0090] said user interface can provide multiple users to efficiently use patterns through a plurality of projection systems easy to use interface.

[0091] 然而,因为可能偶尔会更新底层软件和/或固件,且不同的设备可以按不同的速率更新,如果确实如此,可以提供更新管理器来支持向后兼容和各种其他特性。 [0091] However, since the underlying may occasionally update the software and / or firmware, and different devices can be updated at different rates, and if it does, can provide update manager to support backward compatibility, and various other features.

[0092] 例如,当新版本的图像提供设备固件变得可用时,用户可以通过更新例程更新其模块的固件。 [0092] For example, when a new version of the image providing device firmware becomes available, the user can update the firmware by updating their module routines. 用户可能从网站上下载自解压的ZIP文件,虽然也可以使用其他方法。 Users can download a self-extracting ZIP file from the site, although you can also use other methods. 下面描述更新例程的一个例子实施例。 The following describes an example embodiment of the update routine.

[0093] 具体来说,当用户双击该ZIP文件时,例如,更新例程自解压和图11中的屏幕出现。 [0093] Specifically, when the user double-clicks the ZIP file, for example, the update routine self-extracting and 11 screen appears. 当用户点击“下一步”按钮时,图12中的屏幕出现,该屏幕显示了一个列表,该列表填充有那些已找到的投影机和/或其他设备(缺省地,所有框都可以是取消选中的)。 When the user clicks the "Next" button, the screen appears in Figure 12, the screen shows a list that is filled with those who have found the projector and / or other devices (by default, all the boxes can be canceled selected). 例如,该列表可以填充有当前WLAN上的演示者可用的投影机。 For example, the list can be filled with current presenter WLAN available on the projector. 如果在列表中没有投影机或所需投影机不在列表中,则用户可以点击“扫描”按钮,其操作在前面描述。 If there is no projector or desired projector is not listed in the list, the user can click on the "Scan" button, the operation described in the foregoing. 如果检测到任何其他WLAN,则“扫描”按钮可以产生警告对话框,通知用户当前网络活动可能在搜索过程期间中断。 If you detect any other WLAN, the "Scan" button to generate a warning dialog box that informs the user's current network activity may be interrupted during the search process. 如果用户点击“确定”,则可以出现进度对话框。 If the user clicks "OK", you can progress dialog box appears. 当找到更多演示者可用的投影机时,当找到它们时(即使扫描还在进行),它们可以出现在列表中。 When you find more presenters projectors available, when to find them (even if the scan is still in progress), they can appear in the list. 当扫描完成时,进度对话框关闭。 When the scan is complete, the progress dialog closes. 如果在完成扫描时没有找到更多投影机,则对话框出现,指示没有找到更多演示者可用的投影机。 If you do not find more projectors at the completion of the scan, the dialog box appears, indicating that the presenter does not find more available projector. 然后用户可以检查所需投影机并点击“更新”。 The user can then check the desired projector and click "Update."

[0094] 例如,如果用户选中图12中的“The Boss (老板)”,它具有更新版本的固件,则图13中的警告出现,指示可以安装软件的更新版本。 [0094] For example, if the user selects the figure of 12 "The Boss (Boss)", which has an updated version of the firmware, the figure of 13 warnings, instructions can install an updated version of the software. 当用户随后点击图12中的“更新”(或点击图13中的“确定”)时,图14中的屏幕出现。 When the user then clicks the 12 "Update" (or click on the figure of 13 "OK") when, in Fig. 14 appears. 然后每个演示者模块的状态随着更新例程的进度自动更新(图14)。 Then the state of each presenter module with the progress update routine is automatically updated (Figure 14).

[0095] 更新例程完成投影机的列表的处理并随着进度提供每个状态,如图15所示,其中展示了更新在列表中改变。 [0095] update routine complete with lists of the projector and provided with the progress of each state, as shown in Figure 15, which shows the change in the list of updates. 如果对特定演示者模块的更新顺利进行,则其状态可能通过下面的文本进行循环,例如:已排队(0%完成)、处理中(1-100%完成)、重置(100%完成),及已更新(100%完成)。 If an update to a specific presenter module smoothly, its status may cycle through the following text, for example: Queued (0% complete), processing (1-100% complete), Reset (100% complete). and has been updated (100% complete). 图16展示了状态在列表中改变的另一个例子更新。 Figure 16 shows another example of a state change in the list updated.

[0096] 如果选定的演示者模块在更新例程到达它之前,或当它正被更新时变得不可用(例如,它被关闭或超出范围),则其状态可以变为不可用,且它可以保留在列表中的相同位置。 [0096] If the selected module presenter to reach it before the update routine, or becomes unavailable (for example, it is turned off or out of range) when it is being updated, its status may become unavailable, and It can keep the same position in the list. 然后更新例程可以对它进行尝试,如果它仍然不可用,则更新例程将继续处理下一个演示者模块。 Then update routine can try it, if it is still not available, the update routine will continue with the next presenter module. 当更新例程已不成功地尝试更新某模块达例如三次,则其状态将变为失败。 When the update routine has unsuccessfully tries to update a module, for example up to three times, its status will change to fail.

[0097] 当演示者模块被更新时,下面的消息可以投影到屏幕上:“演示者固件更新正在进行。请稍等”。 [0097] When the presenter module is updated, the following message can be projected onto the screen: "Presenter firmware update is in progress, please wait.."

[0098] 当更新例程已处理完选定的演示者模块的列表时,最终屏幕显示更新的结果。 [0098] When the update routine has finished processing the list of selected modules of the presenter, the final display updated results. 图17展示100%成功。 Figure 17 shows a 100% success. 图18展示如果更新中的一个失败时屏幕的样子。 Figure 18 shows the way if a failure to update the screen. 如果用户点击图17或18中的“上一步”按钮,则图12所示的屏幕可以在刷新以反映当前的固件版本和状态之后出现。 If the user clicks 17 or 18 in the "Back" button, the screen shown in Figure 12 may appear after refreshed to reflect the current firmware version and status.

[0099] 投影系统的另一个可选特性是类似有线的安全性。 Another optional feature of [0099] a projection system is similar to a wired security. 如果“启用安全”复选框(位于上述用户界面的首选项部分)未被选中,则所有行为如本说明书的前面部分所述。 If the "Enable security" check box (located at the user interface preferences section) is not selected, then all behavior as described earlier in this specification. 当用户点击首选项对话框中的“启用安全”复选框时,应用、用户及图像提供设备如何交互存在区别。 When the user clicks on the Preferences dialog box "Enable security" check box, applications, users and how they interact with the image providing device there is a difference. 此区别可以考虑提供安全密钥协商(质询/响应)以及数据加密。 This distinction can be considered to provide security for key negotiation (challenge / response) and data encryption.

[0100] 例如,当用户点击“投影”按钮且启用了安全时,通过几个用户界面组件向用户提供质询。 [0100] For example, when a user clicks the "projection" button, and security is enabled, provide the challenge to the user through several user interface components. 一种是通过图像提供(render)服务器和投影机的快闪类型的屏幕(图像提供消息)。 One is provided by the image (render) server and the projector screen flash types (images provide messages). 在此屏幕上,用户看到例如16磅或更大字体的质询码。 On this screen, users see a larger font, such as 16 pounds or challenge code. 与此同时,在膝上型计算机方(在膝上型计算机的情况下),可以出现对话框,要求用户输入“质询码”或他们在屏幕上看到的字符。 At the same time, the laptop party (in the case of a laptop), you can dialog box appears asking the user to enter "challenge code" or what they see on screen character. 当用户输入了正确的代码时,允许进行安全会话。 When the user enters the correct code, allowing for the secure session. 在此,连接中的数据被加密。 Here, the data connection is encrypted. 取决于所需的系统规格和所需的安全水平,可以使用任何类型的加密。 Depending on the required system specifications and safety level required, you can use any type of encryption. 不正确的质询迫使用户再次点击“投影”并重新进行该序列。 Incorrect question forces the user to click on the "projection" again and again to carry out the sequence. 出错消息可以由PC发送到用户,告诉他们质询码失败并提示他们通过按下“投影”再次进行尝试。 Error messages can be sent from the PC to the user, telling them the challenge code fails with them by pressing the "projection" to try again.

[0101] 当启用了安全时,可以添加另一个附加的对话框。 [0101] When security is enabled, you can add another additional dialog. 即,在密钥协商期间(在用户点击“投影”之后),快速对话框可以弹出,表明“正在建立安全通道”。 That is, during the key negotiation (when the user clicks "projection" after), fast dialog box pops up, "being the establishment of safe passage."

[0102] 虽然本公开内容包括具体的实施例,但具体实施例不应视为具有限制意义,因为各种变化都是可能的。 [0102] While the present disclosure includes specific embodiments, specific embodiments are not to be considered in a limiting sense, because various changes are possible. 本发明的主题包括在此公开的各种元素、特性、功能和/或属性的所有新颖和非易见的组合及子组合。 The subject of the invention disclosed herein include various elements, features, functions, and / or all combinations and sub-combinations of new and non-visible attributes. 本申请的权利要求特别指出视为新颖和非易见的特定组合及子组合。 Claims of this application requires particularly pointed regarded as novel and easy to see non-specific combinations and sub-combinations. 这些权利要求可能引用“一”元素或“第一”元素或其等价。 It may refer to "an" element or "a first" element or the equivalent of these claims. 这样的权利要求应被理解为包括一个或多个这样的元素,而不是要求或排除两个或多个这样的元素。 Such claims should be understood to include one or more such elements, neither requiring nor excluding two or more such elements. 特性、功能、元素和/或属性的其他组合及子组合可以通过本发明权利要求的修改或通过在此申请或相关申请中提供新的权利要求来要求其权利。 Modify features, functions, elements, and / or other combinations and sub-combinations of properties can be achieved by the invention as claimed, or by providing new claims in this or a related application in to claim their rights. 这样的权利要求,无论是比原始权利要求范围更宽、更窄、等价或不同,都应视为包括在本公开内容的主题之内。 Such claims, whether broader, narrower, equal, or different than the original claim shall be deemed to include within the subject matter of the present disclosure.
