    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION



    [0020] In the following detailed description, reference is made to the accompanying drawing figures which form a part hereof, and which show by way of illustration specific embodiments of the invention. It is to be understood by those of ordinary skill in this technological field that other embodiments may be utilized, and structural, electrical, as well as procedural changes may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. Wherever possible, the same reference numbers will be used throughout the drawings to refer to the same or similar parts.

    [0021] As used herein, the suffixes 'module', 'unit' and 'part' are often used for elements in order to facilitate discussion of the disclosure. Therefore, significant meanings or roles are not given to the suffixes themselves and it is understood that the 'module', 'unit' and 'part' can be used together or interchangeably.

    [0022] Various types of terminals may be implemented using the various techniques discussed herein. Examples of such terminals include mobile as well as stationary terminals, such as mobile phones, user equipment, smart phones, DTV, computers, digital broadcast terminals, personal digital assistants, portable multimedia players (PMPs), navigators, and the like. By way of non-limiting example only, further description will be with regard to a mobile terminal 100, and such teachings may apply equally to other types of terminals.

    [0023] FIG. 1 is a block diagram of a mobile terminal 100 in accordance with an embodiment of the present invention. FIG. 1 shows the mobile terminal 100 having a wireless communication unit 110, an A/V (audio/video) input unit 120, a user input unit 130, a sensing unit 140, an output unit 150, a memory 160, an interface unit 170, a controller 180, a power supply unit 190, among other components. Mobile terminal 100 is shown having various components, but it is understood that implementing all of the illustrated components is not a requirement as greater or fewer components may alternatively be implemented.

    [0024] First of all, the wireless communication unit 110 typically includes one or more components which permits wireless communication between the mobile terminal 100 and a wireless communication system or network within which the mobile terminal 100 is located. For instance, the wireless communication unit 110 can include a broadcast receiving module 111, a mobile communication module 112, a wireless internet module 113, a short-range communication module 114, a position-location module 115, and the like.

    [0025] The broadcast receiving module 111 receives a broadcast signal and/or broadcast associated information from an external broadcast managing server via a broadcast channel. The broadcast channel may include a satellite channel and a terrestrial channel. The broadcast managing server generally refers to a server which generates and transmits a broadcast signal and/or broadcast associated information or a server which is provided with a previously generated broadcast signal and/or broadcast associated information and then transmits the provided signal or information to a terminal. The broadcast signal may be implemented as a TV broadcast signal, a radio broadcast signal, and a data broadcast signal, among others. If desired, the broadcast signal may further include a broadcast signal combined with a TV or radio broadcast signal.

    [0026] The broadcast associated information includes information associated with a broadcast channel, a broadcast program, a broadcast service provider, etc. This broadcast associated information can also be provided via a mobile communication network. In this case, the broadcast associated information can be received by the mobile communication module 112.

    [0027] The broadcast associated information can be implemented in various forms. For instance, broadcast associated information may include an electronic program guide (EPG) of digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) and electronic service guide (ESG) of digital video broadcast-handheld (DVB-H).

    [0028] The broadcast receiving module 111 may be configured to receive broadcast signals transmitted from various types of broadcast systems. By nonlimiting example, such broadcasting systems include digital multimedia broadcasting-terrestrial (DMB-T), digital multimedia broadcasting-satellite (DMB-S), digital video broadcast-handheld (DVB-H), the data broadcasting system known as media forward link only (MediaFLO®) and integrated services digital broadcast-terrestrial (ISDB-T). Optionally, the broadcast receiving module 111 can be configured to be suitable for other broadcasting systems as well as the above-identified digital broadcasting systems.

    [0029] The broadcast signal and/or broadcast associated information received by the broadcast receiving module 111 may be stored in a suitable device, such as a memory 160.

    [0030] The mobile communication module 112 transmits/receives wireless signals to/from one or more network entities (e.g., base station, external terminal, server, etc.). Such wireless signals may represent audio, video, and data according to text/multimedia message transceiving, among others.

    [0031] The wireless internet module 113 supports Internet access for the mobile terminal 100. This module may be internally or externally coupled to the mobile terminal 100. In this case, the wireless Internet technology can include WLAN (Wireless LAN) (Wi-Fi), Wibro (Wireless broadband), Wimax (World Interoperability for Microwave Access), HSDPA(High Speed Downlink Packet Access), and the like.

    [0032] The short-range communication module 114 facilitates relatively short-range communications. Suitable technologies for implementing this module include radio frequency identification (RFID), infrared data association (IrDA), ultra-wideband (UWB), as well at the networking technologies commonly referred to as Bluetooth and ZigBee, to name a few.

    [0033] The position-location module 115 identifies or otherwise obtains the location of the mobile terminal 100. If desired, this module may be implemented with a global positioning system (GPS) module.

    [0034] Referring still to FIG. 1, the audio/video (A/V) input unit 120 is shown configured to provide audio or video signal input to the mobile terminal 100. As shown, the A/V input unit 120 includes a camera 121 and a microphone 122. The camera 121 receives and processes image frames of still pictures or video, which are obtained by an image sensor in a video call mode or a photographing mode. Typically, the processed image frames can be displayed on the display 151.

    [0035] The image frames processed by the camera 121 can be stored in the memory 160 or can be externally transmitted via the wireless communication unit 110. Optionally, two or more cameras 121 can be provided to the mobile terminal 100 according to the environment in which the terminal used to according to user needs.

    [0036] The microphone 122 receives an external audio signal while the portable device is in a particular mode, such as phone call mode, recording mode and voice recognition mode. This audio signal is processed and converted into electric audio data. The processed audio data is transformed into a format transmittable to a mobile communication base station via the mobile communication module 112 in case of a call mode. The microphone 122 typically includes assorted noise removing algorithms to remove noise generated in the course of receiving the external audio signal.

    [0037] The user input unit 130 generates input data responsive to user manipulation of an associated input device or devices. Examples of such devices include a keypad, a dome switch, a touchpad (e.g., static pressure/capacitance), a jog wheel, a jog switch, and the like.

    [0038] The sensing unit 140 provides sensing signals for controlling operations of the mobile terminal 100 using status measurements of various aspects of the mobile terminal. For instance, the sensing unit 140 may detect an open/close status of the mobile terminal 100, relative positioning of components (e.g., a display and keypad) of the mobile terminal 100, a change of position of the mobile terminal 100 or a component of the mobile terminal 100, a presence or absence of user contact with the mobile terminal 100, orientation or acceleration/deceleration of the mobile terminal 100.

    [0039] As an example, consider the mobile terminal 100 being configured as a slide-type mobile terminal. In this configuration, the sensing unit 140 may sense whether a sliding portion of the mobile terminal is open or closed. Other examples include the sensing unit 140 sensing the presence or absence of power provided by the power supply 190, the presence or absence of a coupling or other connection between the interface unit 170 and an external device. If desired, the sensing unit 140 can include a proximity sensor 141.

    [0040] The output unit 150 generates outputs relevant to the senses of sight, hearing, touch and the like. In some cases, the output unit 150 includes the display 151, an audio output module 152, an alarm unit 153, a haptic module 154, a projector module 155, and the like.

    [0041] The display 151 is typically implemented to visually display (output) information associated with the mobile terminal 100. For instance, if the mobile terminal is operating in a phone call mode, the display will generally provide a user interface (UI) or graphical user interface (GUI) which includes information associated with placing, conducting, and terminating a phone call. As another example, if the mobile terminal 100 is in a video call mode or a photographing mode, the display 151 may additionally or alternatively display images which are associated with these modes, the UI or the GUI.

    [0042] The display module 151 may be implemented using known display technologies including, for example, a liquid crystal display (LCD), a thin film transistor-liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD), an organic light-emitting diode display (OLED), a flexible display and a three-dimensional display. The mobile terminal 100 may include one or more of such displays.

    [0043] Some of the above displays can be implemented in a transparent or optical transmissive type, which can be named a transparent display. As a representative example for the transparent display, there is TOLED (transparent OLED) or the like. A rear configuration of the display 151 can be implemented in the optical transmissive type as well. In this configuration, a user is able to see an object in rear of a terminal body via the area occupied by the display 151 of the terminal body.

    [0044] At least two displays 151 can be provided to the mobile terminal 100 in accordance with the implemented configuration of the mobile terminal 100. For instance, a plurality of displays can be arranged on a single face of the mobile terminal 100 in a manner of being spaced apart from each other or being built in one body. Alternatively, a plurality of displays can be arranged on different faces of the mobile terminal 100.

    [0045] In the case where the display 151 and a sensor for detecting a touch action (hereinafter also referred to a 'touch sensor') configures a mutual layer structure (hereinafter also referred to a 'touchscreen'), the user can use the display 151 as an input device as well as an output device. In this case, the touch sensor can be configured as a touch film, a touch sheet, a touchpad or the like.

    [0046] The touch sensor can be configured to convert a pressure applied to a specific portion of the display 151 or a variation of a capacitance generated from a specific portion of the display 151 to an electric input signal. Moreover, it is able to configure the touch sensor to detect a pressure of a touch as well as a touched position or size.

    [0047] If a touch input is made to the touch sensor, signal(s) corresponding to the touch is transferred to a touch controller. The touch controller processes the signal(s) and then transfers the processed signal(s) to the controller 180. Therefore, the controller 180 is able to know whether a prescribed portion of the display 151 is touched.

    [0048] With continued reference to FIG. 1, a proximity sensor (not shown in the drawing) can be provided to an internal area of the mobile terminal 100 enclosed by the touchscreen or proximate to the touchscreen. The proximity sensor is the sensor that detects a presence or non-presence of an object approaching a prescribed detecting surface or an object existing around the proximity sensor using an electromagnetic field strength or infrared ray without mechanical contact. Hence, the proximity sensor has durability longer than that of a contact type sensor and also has utility wider than that of the contact type sensor.

    [0049] The proximity sensor can include one or more of a transmissive photoelectric sensor, a direct reflective photoelectric sensor, a mirror reflective photoelectric sensor, a radio frequency oscillation proximity sensor, an electrostatic capacity proximity sensor, a magnetic proximity sensor, an infrared proximity sensor, and the like. When the touchscreen includes the electrostatic capacity proximity sensor, it may also be configured to detect the proximity of a pointer using a variation of electric field according to the proximity of the pointer. In this scenario, the touchscreen (touch sensor) can be classified as a proximity sensor.

    [0050] In the following description, for clarity, an action that a pointer approaches without contacting with the touchscreen to be recognized as located on the touchscreen is referred to as 'proximity touch' while an action that a pointer actually touches the touchscreen may be referred to as a 'contact touch'. The meaning of the position on the touchscreen proximity-touched by the pointer refers to the position of the pointer which vertically opposes the touchscreen when the pointer performs the proximity touch.

    [0051] The proximity sensor detects a proximity touch and a proximity touch pattern (e.g., a proximity touch distance, a proximity touch duration, a proximity touch position, a proximity touch shift state, etc.). In addition, information corresponding to the detected proximity touch action and the detected proximity touch pattern can be outputted to the touchscreen.

    [0052] The audio output module 152 functions in various modes including a call-receiving mode, a call-placing mode, a recording mode, a voice recognition mode, a broadcast reception mode and the like to output audio data which is received from the wireless communication unit 110 or is stored in the memory 160. During operation, the audio output module 152 outputs audio relating to a particular function (e.g., call received, message received, etc.). The audio output module 152 is often implemented using one or more speakers, buzzers, other audio producing devices, and combinations thereof.

    [0053] The alarm unit 153 is output a signal for announcing the occurrence of a particular event associated with the mobile terminal 100. Typical events include a call received event, a message received event and a touch input received event. The alarm unit 153 is able to output a signal for announcing the event occurrence by way of vibration as well as video or audio signal. The video or audio signal can be outputted via the display 151 or the audio output unit 152. Hence, the display 151 or the audio output module 152 can be regarded as a part of the alarm unit 153.

    [0054] The haptic module 154 generates various tactile effects that can be sensed by a user. Vibration is a representative one of the tactile effects generated by the haptic module 154. Strength and pattern of the vibration generated by the haptic module 154 are controllable. For instance, different vibrations can be outputted in a manner of being synthesized together or can be outputted in sequence.

    [0055] The haptic module 154 is able to generate various tactile effects as well as the vibration. For instance, the haptic module 154 generates the effect attributed to the arrangement of pins vertically moving against a contact skin surface, the effect attributed to the injection/suction power of air though an injection/suction hole, the effect attributed to the skim over a skin surface, the effect attributed to the contact with electrode, the effect attributed to the electrostatic force, the effect attributed to the representation of hold/cold sense using an endothermic or exothermic device and the like.

    [0056] The haptic module 154 can be implemented to enable a user to sense the tactile effect through a muscle sense of finger, arm or the like as well as to transfer the tactile effect through a direct contact. Optionally, at least two haptic modules 154 can be provided to the mobile terminal 100 in accordance with the corresponding configuration type of the mobile terminal 100.

    [0057] The projector module 155 is the element for performing an image projector function using the mobile terminal 100. And, the projector module 155 is able to display an image, which is identical to or partially different at least from the image displayed on the display 151, on an external screen or wall according to a control signal of the controller 180.

    [0058] In particular, the projector module 155 can include a light source (not shown in the drawing) generating light (e.g., laser) for projecting an image externally, an image producing element (not shown in the drawing) for producing an image to output externally using the light generated from the light source, and a lens (not shown in the drawing) for enlarging the image for output externally at predetermined focus distance. The projector module 155 can further include a device (not shown in the drawing) for adjusting an image projected direction by mechanically moving the lens or the whole module.

    [0059] The projector module 155 can be classified into a CRT (cathode ray tube) module, an LCD (liquid crystal display) module, a DLP (digital light processing) module or the like according to a device type of a display means. In particular, the DLP module is operated by the mechanism of enabling the light generated from the light source to reflect on a DMD (digital micro-mirror device) chip and can be advantageous for the downsizing of the projector module 151.

    [0060] Preferably, the projector module 155 can be provided in a length direction of a lateral, front or backside direction of the mobile terminal 100. It is understood that the projector module 155 can be provided to any portion of the mobile terminal 100 according to the necessity thereof.

    [0061] The memory unit 160 is generally used to store various types of data to support the processing, control, and storage requirements of the mobile terminal 100. Examples of such data include program instructions for applications operating on the mobile terminal 100, contact data, phonebook data, messages, audio, still pictures, moving pictures, etc. And, a recent use history or a cumulative use frequency of each data (e.g., use frequency for each phonebook, each message or each multimedia) can be stored in the memory unit 160. Moreover, data for various patterns of vibration and/or sound outputted in case of a touch input to the touchscreen can be stored in the memory unit 160.

    [0062] The memory 160 may be implemented using any type or combination of suitable volatile and non-volatile memory or storage devices including hard disk, random access memory (RAM), static random access memory (SRAM), electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM), erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM), programmable read-only memory (PROM), read-only memory (ROM), magnetic memory, flash memory, magnetic or optical disk, multimedia card micro type memory, card-type memory (e.g., SD memory, XD memory, etc.), or other similar memory or data storage device. And, the mobile terminal 100 is able to operate in association with a web storage for performing a storage function of the memory 160 on the Internet.

    [0063] The interface unit 170 is often implemented to couple the mobile terminal 100 with external devices. The interface unit 170 receives data from the external devices or is supplied with the power and then transfers the data or power to the respective elements of the mobile terminal 100 or enables data within the mobile terminal 100 to be transferred to the external devices. The interface unit 170 may be configured using a wired/wireless headset port, an external charger port, a wired/wireless data port, a memory card port, a port for coupling to a device having an identity module, audio input/output ports, video input/output ports, an earphone port and/or the like.

    [0064] The identity module is the chip for storing various kinds of information for authenticating a use authority of the mobile terminal 100 and can include User Identify Module (UIM), Subscriber Identity Module (SIM), Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) and/or the like. A device having the identity module (hereinafter called 'identity device') can be manufactured as a smart card. Therefore, the identity device is connectible to the mobile terminal 100 via the corresponding port.

    [0065] When the mobile terminal 110 is connected to an external cradle, the interface unit 170 becomes a passage for supplying the mobile terminal 100 with a power from the cradle or a passage for delivering various command signals inputted from the cradle by a user to the mobile terminal 100. Each of the various command signals inputted from the cradle or the power can operate as a signal enabling the mobile terminal 100 to recognize that it is correctly loaded in the cradle.

    [0066] The controller 180 typically controls the overall operations of the mobile terminal 100. For example, the controller 180 performs the control and processing associated with voice calls, data communications, video calls, etc. The controller 180 may include a multimedia module 181 that provides multimedia playback. The multimedia module 181 may be configured as part of the controller 180, or implemented as a separate component. Moreover, the controller 180 is able to perform a pattern recognizing process for recognizing a writing input and a picture drawing input carried out on the touchscreen as characters or images, respectively.

    [0067] The power supply unit 190 provides power required by the various components for the mobile terminal 100. The power may be internal power, external power, or combinations thereof.

    [0070] FIG. 2 is a front perspective diagram of a mobile terminal according to various embodiments of the present invention. The mobile terminal 100 is shown as a bar type terminal body, but the mobile terminal may alternative be implemented using other configuration such as folder-type, slide-type, rotational-type, swing-type, combinations thereof, and the like. For clarity, further disclosure will primarily relate to a bar-type mobile terminal 100, but such teachings apply equally to other types of mobile terminals.

    [0071] Referring still to FIG. 2, the mobile terminal 100 includes a case (casing, housing, cover, etc.) configuring an exterior thereof. The case is shown divided into a front case 101 and a rear case 102. Various electric/electronic parts are positioned or otherwise located in a space or cavity provided between the front and rear cases 101 and 102. Optionally, at least one middle case can be further provided between the front and rear cases 101 and 102. The cases 101 and 102 may be formed by injection molding of synthetic resin or they can be formed of metal substance such as stainless steel (STS), titanium (Ti) or the like, for example.

    [0072] A display 151, an audio output unit 152, a camera 121, user input units 130/131 and 132, a microphone 122, an interface 180 and the like can be provided to the terminal body, and more particularly, to the front case 101.

    [0073] The display 151 is shown occupying the majority of a main face of the front case 101. The audio output unit 151 and the camera 121 are provided to an area adjacent to one of both end portions of the display 151, while the user input unit 131 and the microphone 122 are provided to another area adjacent to the other end portion of the display 151. The user input unit 132 and the interface 170 can be provided to lateral sides of the front and rear cases 101 and 102.

    [0074] The input unit 130 is manipulated to receive a command for controlling an operation of the terminal 100. The input unit 130 may also include a plurality of manipulating units 131 and 132. The manipulating units 131 and 132 will sometimes be referred to herein as a manipulating portion and they may implement any mechanism of a tactile manner that enables a user to perform a manipulation action by experiencing a tactile feeling.

    [0075] Content inputted by the first or second manipulating unit 131 or 132 can be diversely set. For instance, such a command as start, end, scroll and the like is inputted to the first manipulating unit 131. A command for volume adjustment of sound outputted from the audio output unit 152, a command for switching to a touch recognizing mode of the display 151 or the like can be inputted to the second manipulating unit 132.

    [0076] For clarity and convenience of the following description, a mobile terminal mentioned in the following description is assumed as including at least one of the components shown in FIG. 1. Meanwhile, such a graphic for pointing at a specific object on a display unit or selecting a menu from the display unit as an arrow, a finger and the like is called a pointer or a cursor. Yet, the pointer is frequently used to mean a finger, a stylus pen or the like for a touch manipulation and the like. In order to clearly discriminate the pointer and the cursor from each other in this disclosure, a graphic displayed on a display unit is named a cursor and such a physical means for performing a touch, a proximity touch, a gesture and the like as a finger, a stylus pen and the like is named a pointer.

    [0077] In particular, a mobile terminal 100 according to the present invention may include a display (151), a memory 160 and a controller 180. The present invention could be easily perform if the display (151) is touchscreen. Hereinafter, the display may be assumed as a touchscreen. The touchscreen displays a video content and may receive various user commands for video content playback, video content editing and the like via pointer(s).

    [0078] The controller 180 controls a progress bar for a video content to be displayed on the touchscreen and may control a 1st time indicator and a 2nd time indicator to be displayed on the progress bar. And, the controller 180 may control a 1st scene at a 1st time corresponding to the 1st time indicator and a 2nd scene at a 2nd time corresponding to the 2nd time indicator to be displayed on the touchscreen as well.

    [0079] A video content of the present invention may include a video content saved in the memory 160 of the mobile terminal or a video contents saved in a remote terminal.

    [0080] In the following description, the assembly relation of the respective components of the mobile terminal is explained in detail based on a flowchart for controlling the mobile terminal.

    [0081] FIG. 3 is a flowchart for a method of controlling a mobile terminal according to one embodiment of the present invention.

    [0082] Referring to FIG. 3, in a video content playing step S301, the controller 180 plays a video content based on a user input and control the touchscreen to display the video content. In particular, the controller 180 plays a video content saved in the memory 160. Alternatively, the controller 180 receives a video content saved in a remote terminal via the wireless communication unit 110 and may then perform a streaming play on the received video content.

    [0083] While the video content is being played back, if both 1st and 2nd pointers are simultaneously touched on the touchscreen [S302], the controller 180 stops playing the video content and may then enter a video editing mode.

    [0084] If the video editing mode is entered, the controller 180 may be able to control a progress bar for the video content and 1st and 2nd time indicators, which are configured to move on the progress bar, to be displayed on the touchscreen together. Furthermore, the controller 180 may control a 1st scene at a 1st time corresponding to the 1st time indicator and a 2nd scene at a 2nd time corresponding to the 2nd time indicator to be displayed on the touchscreen as well.

    [0085] FIG. 4 is a diagram for screen configurations of switching to a video editing mode in the course of playing a video content.

    [0086] Referring to FIG. 4, while a video content played screen is displayed, if a 1st pointer 402 and a 2nd pointer 404 are simultaneously detected from the touchscreen [FIG. 4 (a)], the controller 180 stops playing a video content and then controls a video editing mode to be entered [FIG. 4 (b)]. Once the video editing mode is entered, the controller 180 controls a progress bar 410 to be displayed on the touchscreen and controls a 1st time indicator 412 and a 2nd time indicator 414 to be displayed on the progress bar 410. In doing so, in an initial scene of video editing mode, the 1st and 2nd time indicators 412 and 414 may be displayed at the same position on the progress bar 410 in a manner of being superposed on each other. In case that the 1st and 2nd time indicators 412 and 414 are displayed at the same position on the progress bar 410 in a manner of being superposed on each other, one of the 1st and 2nd time indicators 412 and 414 may not be displayed on the touchscreen in a manner of being blocked by the other. While the 1st and 2nd time indicators 412 and 414 are displayed in a manner of being superposed on each other, if both of the 1st and 2nd pointers 402 and 404 are simultaneously released from the touchscreen, the controller 180 ends the editing mode and controls a current screen to return to the video play screen shown in FIG. 4A. Referring to FIG. 4 (c), after the 1st pointer 402 and the 2nd pointer 404 have been spaced apart from each other, even if both of the 1st and 2nd pointers 402 and 404 are simultaneously released from the touchscreen, the editing mode may continue.

    [0087] Moreover, in the editing mode [cf. FIG. 4 (b) and FIG. 4 (c)], the controller 180 may control a 1st scene 422 at a 1st time corresponding to the 1st time indicator 412 and a 2nd scene 424 at a 2nd time corresponding to the 2nd time indicator 414 to be displayed on the touchscreen as well. Moreover, the controller 180 may control a numerical value 432 of the 1st time and a numerical value 434 of the 2nd time to be further displayed on the touchscreen. If a play button 442 is selected, the controller 180 may be able to play a video between the 1st time of the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time of the 2nd time indicator. If a save button 444 is selected, the controller 180 may control a video between the 1st time of the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time of the 2nd time indicator to be saved in the memory 160.

    [0088] FIG. 4a shows that the video editing mode can be entered by touching the 1st pointer 402 and the 2nd pointer 404 at random points on the touchscreeen, while a video content plays via touchscreen. According to another embodiment of the present invention, if a 1st pointer and a 2nd pointer touch a preset 1st region and a preset 2nd region, respectively, the controller 180 may set an editing mode to be entered.

    [0089] The 1st time indicator and the 2nd time indicator may be able to move on the progress bar. If the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time indicator move, the controller 180 may control the 1st scene and the 2nd scene to be changed to correspond to the moving 1st and 2nd time indicators, respectively.

    [0090] In particular, if the 1st or 2nd pointer is touched & dragged in at least one of 1st to 3rd regions [S304], the controller 180 may control at least one of the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time indicator to move [S305 to S307].

    [0091] First of all, if the 1st pointer and/or the 2nd pointer is touched and/or dragged on the 1st region and/or the 2nd region, the controller 180 may control the 1st time indicator and/or the 2nd time indicator to move [S305, S306].

    [0092] FIG. 5 is a diagram for screen configurations to describe the progress of a 1st time indicator.

    [0093] Referring to FIG. 5, assume that a part of the touchscreen, on which a 1st scene is displayed, is set to a 1st region 512 [FIG. 5A]. In doing so, referring to FIG. 5 (b) and FIG. 5 (c), if a 1st pointer 502 is touched & dragged on the 1st region 512 in left-to-right direction, the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 522 to move in left-to-right direction. To correspond to the progress of the 1st time indicator 522, the controller 180 may be able to control a 1st time 532 and a 1st scene to be updated.

    [0094] On the contrary, if the 1st pointer 502 is touched & dragged on the 1st region 512 in right-to-left direction in order of FIG. 5 (c) and FIG. 5 (b), The controller 180 may control the 1st time indicator 522 to move in right-to-left direction.

    [0095] FIG. 6 is a diagram for screen configurations to describe the progress of a 2nd time indicator.

    [0096] Referring to FIG. 6, assume that a part of the touchscreen, on which a 2nd scene is displayed, is set to a 2nd region 612 [FIG. 6A]. As mentioned in the foregoing description with reference to FIG. 5, if a 1st pointer 602 (or a 2nd pointer) is touched & dragged on the 2nd region 612, the controller 180 may control a 2nd time indicator 624 to move and may be able to control a 2nd view 632 and a 2nd scene to be updated as well.

    [0097] Although FIG. 5 or FIG. 6 shows that the 1st or 2nd pointer is touched & dragged on one of the 1st region and the 2nd region for example, the 1st pointer and the 2nd pointer may be touched & dragged on the 1st region and the 2nd region, respectively. In doing so, if the 1st pointer and the 2nd pointer are simultaneously touched & dragged on the 1st region and the 2nd region, respectively, the controller 180 may control both of the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time indicator to move. In particular, the controller 180 controls the 1st time indicator to move on the basis of a touch & drag input of the 1st pointer and also controls the 2nd time indicator to move on the basis of a touch & drag input of the 2nd pointer.

    [0098] In doing so, although the 1st pointer or the 2nd pointer is touched & dragged on the 1st region or the 2nd region in the same distance, the controller 180 may control a traveling distance of the 1st time indicator or the 2nd time indicator to vary in accordance with a touch & drag position or a touch & drag trajectory of the pointers.

    [0099] FIG. 7 is a diagram for screen configurations to describe that a traveling distance of a 1st time indicator is differently applied in accordance with a touch & drag position of a 1st pointer.

    [0100] Referring to FIG. 7, if a 1st pointer 702 is touched & dragged on a top portion of a 1st region in left-to-right direction by 'a', the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 712 to move in left-to-right direction by 'd1' [FIG. 7 (a)]. If a 1st pointer 702 is touched & dragged on a middle portion of a 1st region by 'a', the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 712 to move in left-to-right direction by 'd2' [FIG. 7 (b)]. If a 1st pointer 702 is touched & dragged on a bottom portion of a 1st region by 'a', the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 712 to move in left-to-right direction by 'd3' [FIG. 7 (c)].

    [0101] FIG. 8 is a diagram for screen configurations to describe that a traveling distance of a 2nd time indicator is differently applied in accordance with a touch & drag position of a 1st pointer. Like FIG. 7, even if a 1st pointer 802 is touched & dragged by a same distance 'a', the controller 180 may control a traveling distance of a 2nd time indicator 814 to vary in accordance with a touch & drag position.

    [0102] In particular, referring to FIG. 7 and FIG. 8, the controller 180 may control the traveling distances of the 1st and 2nd time indicators to vary by depending on a prescribed position of the 1st region at which the 1st pointer has moved.

    [0103] Moreover, the controller 180 may control a traveling distance of the 1st time indicator to apply differently in accordance with a touch & drag trajectory of the 1st pointer (or the 2nd pointer).

    [0104] FIG. 9 is a diagram for screen configurations to describe that a traveling distance of a 1st time indicator is differently applied in accordance with a touch & drag trajectory.

    [0105] Referring to FIG. 9, if a 1st pointer 902 is touched & dragged along a straight path amounting to a length a', the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 912 to move in left-to-right direction by d1' [FIG. 9 (a)]. After the 1st pointer 902 has been touched & dragged clockwise along a curved path amounting to a length a', the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 912 to move in left-to-right direction by d2' [FIG. 9 (b)].

    [0106] FIG. 10 is a diagram for screen configurations to describe that a traveling distance of a 2nd time indicator is differently applied in accordance with a touch & drag trajectory. As mentioned in the foregoing description with reference to FIG. 9, even if a 1st pointer 1002 (or a 2nd pointer) is touched & dragged by the same distance a', the controller 180 may control a traveling distance of a 2nd time indicator 1014 to apply differently in accordance with a traveling trajectory of the 1st pointer 1002.

    [0107] Referring to FIG. 9 and FIG. 10, even if the 1st pointer (or the 2nd pointer) is touched & dragged on the 1st region or the 2nd region by the same distance, the controller 180 may control a traveling distance of the 1st or 2nd time indicator to apply differently in accordance with a touch & drag trajectory.

    [0108] As mentioned in the foregoing descriptions with reference to FIGs. 7 to 10, by controlling a traveling distance of a 1st or 2nd time indicator to vary in accordance with a touch & drag position or trajectory of a 1st or 2nd pointer, a user may be able to adjust positions of the 1st and 2nd time indicators more precisely.

    [0109] Subsequently, if the 1st or 2nd pointer is touched & dragged on a 3rd region different from each of the 1st region and the 2nd region, the controller 180 may control both of the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time indicator to move simultaneously [S307].

    [0110] FIG. 11 is a diagram for screen configurations to show that both a 1st time indicator and a 2nd time indicator move simultaneously if a 1st pointer is touched & dragged in a 3rd region.

    [0111] Referring to FIG. 11, assume that a space between a 1st time indicator 1114 and a 2nd time indicator 1116 is a 3rd region 1112 [FIG. 11 (a)]. While the 3rd region 1112 is touched, if a 1st pointer 1102 is dragged in left-to-right direction, the controller 180 may be able to control both of the 1st and 2nd time indicators 1114 and 1116 to move simultaneously in the dragged direction of the 1st pointer 1102 [FIG. 11 (b)]. In particular, the controller 180 may control the 1st and 2nd time indicators 1114 and 1116 to move on a progress bar by maintaining an equal space in-between.

    [0112] After the 2nd time indicator 1116 has arrived at an end point of the progress bar, if the 1st pointer 1102 keeps moving in left-to-right direction, the controller 180 may control the 1st time indicator 1114 to move in left-to-right direction only while the 2nd time indicator 1116 is fixed to the end point of the progress bar [FIG. 11 (c)]. In doing so, the space between the 1st time indicator 1114 and the 2nd time indicator 1116 becomes narrower.

    [0113] On the contrary, if the 1st pointer 1102 is dragged in right-to-left direction, the controller 180 may be able to control both of the 1st and 2nd time indicators 1114 and 1116 to move in the right-to-left direction [FIG. 11 (b)]. After the 1st time indicator 1114 has arrived at a start point of the progress bar, if the 1st pointer 1102 keeps moving in right-to-left direction, the controller 180 may control the 2nd time indicator 1116 to move in right-to-left direction only while the 1st time indicator 1114 is fixed to the start point of the progress bar.

    [0114] As mentioned in the foregoing descriptions with reference to FIGs. 5 to 11 so far, if a 1st pointer is touched & dragged on a specific region (e.g., at least one of 1st to 3rd regions) of a touchscreen, a 1st time indicator and a 2nd time indicator may move, by which the present invention may be non-limited.

    [0115] According to another embodiment of the present invention, the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator or a 2nd time indicator to move to a different position by adjusting a numerical value of a 1st or 2nd view.

    [0116] FIG. 12 is a diagram for screen configurations of adjusting a position of a 1st time indicator by adjusting a numerical value of a 1st time.

    [0117] Referring to FIG. 12, if a region 1212, on which a numerical value of a 1st time is displayed, is touched with a 1st pointer [FIG. 12 (a)], the controller 180 may be able to provide a popup window 1222 for adjusting the numerical value of the 1st time [FIG. 12 (b)]. If the numerical value of the 1st time is modified, the controller 180 may control a 1st time indicator 1202 to move to a 1st time of the modified numerical value [FIG. 12 (c)].

    [0118] FIG. 13 is a diagram for screen configurations of adjusting a position of a 2nd time indicator by adjusting a numerical value of a 2nd time.

    [0119] Referring to FIG. 13, as mentioned in the foregoing description with reference to FIG. 12, if a region 1312, on which a numerical value of a 2nd time is displayed, is touched with a 1st pointer (or a 2nd pointer), the numerical value of the 2nd time can be modified via a provided popup window 1322. Thereafter, the controller 180 may control a 2nd time indicator 1304 to move to a 2nd time of the modified numerical value.

    [0120] In doing so, the controller 180 may control the numerical value of the 1st time not to be adjustable into a value after the 2nd time and control the numerical value of the 2nd time not to be adjustable into a value before the 1st time. For instance, if a value after the 2nd time is inputted to the screen for adjusting the numerical value of the 1st time, the controller 180 may control the inputted value to be automatically adjusted into a numerical value of the 2nd time or a numerical value before the 2nd time or control a warning message to be displayed on the touchscreen to indicate that a wrong numerical value of the 1st time has been inputted.

    [0121] According to the foregoing descriptions with reference to FIGs. 5 to 13, a progressing bar, a 1st time indicator and a 2nd time indicator are arranged on a top portion of a screen and a 1st scene and a 2nd scene are displayed below them, by which the present invention may be non-limited. Alternatively, a progressing bar, a 1st time indicator and a 2nd time indicator may be displayed in a manner of not being fixed to initially displayed positions but changing their positions in various ways to correspond to a situation.

    [0122] FIG. 14 is a diagram of screen configurations to show that display positions of a progress bar, a 1st time indicator and a 2nd time indicator are changed in accordance with an operating mode of a touchscreen.

    [0123] FIG. 14 (a) is a diagram of screen configuration when a touchscreen operates in landscape mode. Referring to FIG. 14 (a), when a touchscreen operates in landscape mode, the controller 180 may control a progress bar 1402, a 1st time indicator 1404 and a 2nd time indicator 1406 to be displayed on a top portion (or a bottom portion) of a screen. And, the controller 180 may control a 1st scene 1412 and a 2nd scene 1414 to be arranged below the progress bar in a manner of being symmetric to each other with reference to a vertical axis.

    [0124] FIG. 14 (b) is a diagram of screen configuration when a touchscreen operates in portrait mode. Referring to FIG. 14 (b), when a touchscreen operates in portrait mode, the controller 180 may control a progress bar 1402, a 1st time indicator 1404 and a 2nd time indicator 1406 to be displayed on a middle portion of a screen. And, the controller 180 may control a 1st scene 1412 and a 2nd scene 1414 to be arranged in a manner of being symmetric to each other with reference to the progress bar 1402.

    [0125] Subsequently, the controller 180 may control a video between the 1st time of the 1st time indicator and the 2nd time of the 2nd time indicator to be saved in the memory 160 [S308]. In particular, the controller 180 may substitute the original video content with the video between the 1st time and the 2nd time. And, the controller 180 creates a new content different from the original video content and then controls the created new content to be saved as the video between the 1st time and the 2nd time.

    [0126] In this case, a file format of the new content may be at least one of a video file format, a moving graphic image file format (.gif), a vector graphic image file format (.swf) and the like.

    [0127] FIG. 15 is a diagram for screen configuration provided to a user to save a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time.

    [0128] Referring to FIG. 15, if a save button 444 shown in FIG. 4 is selected via a 1st pointer, the controller 180 may control a menu screen shown in Fig. 15 to be displayed. If a user selects a button 'save as original' 1502, the controller 180 may control a video between a 1st view and a 2nd view to be saved by replacing an original content. If a user selects a button 'save with new name' 1504, the controller 180 may control a video between a 1st view and a 2nd view to be saved as a new video content separately from an original content.

    [0129] If a user selects a button 'save as moving picture file' 1506, the controller 180 may control a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time to be saved in the memory 160 by being converted to a moving graphic image (.gif) or a vector graphic image (.swf).

    [0130] Moreover, if a position of a 1st time indicator and a position of a 2nd time indicator are equal to each other on a progress bar (i.e., if a 1st time is equal to a 2nd time), the controller 180 may control a stillcut of the corresponding time to be saved in the memory 160.

    [0131] According to another embodiment of the present invention, the controller 180 may substitute an original video content with a video of a remaining part except a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time. And, the controller 180 may create a new video content different from an original video content and save the new video content as a video of a remaining part except a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time.

    [0132] If a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time is saved, the controller 180 ends the editing mode and may control an output of the touchscreen to return to the video play screen.

    [0133] According to the embodiment mentioned in the foregoing description, a 1st region is defined above a 1st scene, a 2nd region is defined above a 2nd scene, and a 3rd region is defined between a 1st time indicator and a 2nd indicator. This description is just provided to facilitate the description of the present invention but does not intend to put limitation on the present invention. Alternatively, the 1st to 3rd regions may be designated in various ways in addition to the aforementioned positions.

    [0134] For instance, a 1st time indicator displayed position and a 2nd time indicator displayed position may be set to match a 1st region and a 2nd region, respectively. In this case, a user may be able to move a 1st time indicator and/or a 2nd time indicator in a manner of touching & dragging the 1st time indicator or the 2nd time indicator directly.

    [0135] It is not mandatory for the 3rd region to be implemented on the touchscreen. Instead, the step S307 is omitted and positions of the 1st and 2nd time indicators may be controlled to be adjusted via the 1st and 2nd regions only.

    [0136] According to another embodiment of the present invention, the controller 180 controls a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time to be temporarily saved and may then control the video between the 1st time and the 2nd time to be inserted into a desired position.

    [0137] FIG. 16 is a diagram for screen configurations to show that a video between a 1st time and a 2nd time is inserted in a desired position.

    [0138] Referring to FIG. 16, if a space 1602 between a Is time indicator 1604 and a 2nd time indicator 1606 is touched with a 1st pointer for prescribed duration, the controller 180 may control a pop window 1612 to be displayed [FIG. 16 (a)].
