Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9955076A1] A device (10) for viewing photographic image through a television set is provided which generally comprises a light source (12) for illuminating the photographic image, a photographic image holder (14), an optical element (16) for focusing the illuminated photographic film image, and either a digital non-linear camera (18) or an analog non-linear camera with an analog to digital converter for capturing the focused photographic image and for creating a digital image, which can be shown on a digital television (24). Additionally, the image viewer can include a digital to analog converter to convert the image to analog such that it can be viewed on an analog television. The digital image can also be sent to a computer or printer. The photographic image can be either a slide, film in a cartridge or a photographic print. The device can further comprise a digital signal processor for improving the quality of the digital image and a video recorder for recording the images for later playback.
