Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9949659A1] A frame converting device wherein the frame converting device is used as incorporated with a VCR device for recording and reproduction, the operation mode can be automatically switched interlocked with the recording operation or the reproduction operation of the VCR device is realized. A frame converting device comprises two operation modes, one mode being a recording mode for producing a record signal recorded in a record medium of a recording/reproduction device based on a plurality of frame signals being multiplexed and an identification signal for identifying the frame signal, and the other mode being a reproduction mode for extracting the individual frame signal and the individual identification signal based on the record signal read from the record medium of the recording/reproduction device. The frame converting device is provided with a mode setting unit (301, 311-315) which monitors the operation mode of the recording/reproduction device and sets the operation mode of the frame converting device to the recording mode or the reproduction mode based on the monitored result. An identification signal generating unit (301, 332, 331) generates the identification signal when the mode setting unit (301, 311-315) performs the setting of the recording mode and stops the generation of the identification signal when the mode setting unit (301, 311-315) performs the setting of the reproduction mode.
