the installation position of the television 1 based on the device information and the position
information of each speaker 2 stored in the setting storage unit 13.
For example, it is assumed that the viewing position of the user is the optimum viewing position
of the television 1 (for example, the position at the center of the front of the television 1 and the
distance from the television 1 is the screen height of the television 1 × 3).
The setting processing unit 11 sets the frequency characteristic, the transmission delay time, the
volume, and the like for each of the speakers 2 based on the device information and the position
information of each of the speakers 2 so that the optimum viewing position becomes an optimum
sound field. Calculate the value.

the setting storage unit 13 (including the case where the setting value is not set in the new
device), the setting processing unit 11 via the setting transmission unit 12 To transmit the
calculated set value to devices having different set values.
[0037]
The setting transmission unit 12 includes, for example, an infrared transmission unit, and
transmits the setting value of the setting processing unit 11 to the speaker 2.
[0038]
<Flow of Processing of Television System 1000> Next, the flow of processing of the television
system 1000 will be described with reference to FIG.
[0039]
First, in step S11, the collection processing unit 34 of the mobile device 3 receives a search start
trigger.
The search start trigger is notified to the collection processing unit 34 according to a preset
operation, a preset schedule, and the like.

10
In step S12, the collection processing unit 34 causes the movement processing unit 31 to move
within the search range.
In step S13, the device information acquisition unit 342 of the mobile device 3 transmits a read
radio wave.
In step S 14, the device information transmission unit 23 of the speaker 2 acquires device
information from the device information storage unit 24 in response to the read radio wave of
the mobile device 3 and transmits the device information to the mobile device 3.
[0040]
In step S <b> 15, the device information acquisition unit 342 of the mobile device 3 determines
whether device information has been acquired from the speaker 2. If No in step S15, the device
information acquisition unit 342 proceeds with the process to step S24. On the other hand, in the
case of Yes in step S15, in step S16, the position information acquisition unit 341 of the mobile
device 3 acquires current position information.
[0041]
In step S17, the collection processing unit 34 of the mobile device 3 determines whether the
device corresponding to the acquired device information is a new external device, that is, the
acquired device information is not stored in the collected information storage unit 32. Determine
if there is. In the case of Yes in step S17, in step S18, the collection processing unit 34 transmits,
via the device data transmission unit 33, the fact that a new device has been found, and the
acquired device information and position information to the television 1. The process proceeds to
step S23. In step S19, the setting processing unit 11 of the television 1 causes the setting storage
unit 13 to store the device data acquired from the mobile device 3 via the device data receiving
unit 14.
[0042]
10-05-2019
11
On the other hand, if No in step S17, in step S20, the collection processing unit 34 of the mobile
device 3 determines whether the acquired position information and the position information
stored in the collected information storage unit 32 are different, that is, the position Determine if
the information has changed. If No in step S20, the collection processing unit 34 proceeds with
the process to step S23. On the other hand, in the case of Yes in step S20, the collection
processing unit 34 transmits to the television 1 that the position information has been changed
and the acquired device information and position information through the device data
transmission unit 33 in step S21. Then, the process proceeds to step S23. In step S22, the setting
processing unit 11 of the television 1 causes the setting storage unit 13 to store the device data
acquired from the mobile device 3 via the device data receiving unit 14.
[0043]
In step S23, the collection processing unit 34 of the mobile device 3 stores the acquired device
information and position information in the collection information storage unit 32 in association
with a flag indicating that the device has been confirmed. In step S24, the collection processing
unit 34 determines whether the search within the search range in the movement processing unit
31 has ended. If No in step S24, the processing from step S12 to step S24 is repeated.
[0044]
On the other hand, in the case of Yes in step S24, the collection processing unit 34 refers to the
collected information storage unit 32 in step S25, and whether or not there is a device for which
a flag indicating confirmed has not been set, that is, an undiscovered external device Determine if
In the case of No at step S25, the process proceeds to step S28. On the other hand, in the case of
Yes in step S25, in step S26, the collection processing unit 34 transmits to the television 1 via
the device data transmission unit 33 that the device has not been found and the device
information of the device in question. The process proceeds to S28. In step S27, the setting
processing unit 11 of the television 1 causes the setting storage unit 13 to store the device data
acquired from the mobile device 3 via the device data receiving unit 14. In step S28, the
collection processing unit 34 transmits to the television 1 via the device data transmission unit
33 that the search has been completed.
[0045]
10-05-2019
12
When the setting processing unit 11 of the television 1 is notified of the completion of the search
from the mobile device 3 via the device data receiving unit 14 in step S29, the setting
information unit 13 of the speaker 2 is referred to with reference to the setting storage unit 13.
The setting value to be set to each speaker 2 is calculated based on the position information and
the position information. At this time, the speaker 2 in which the flag indicating unconfirmed is
set is excluded from the calculation process of the setting value.
[0046]
In step S30, the setting processing unit 11 determines whether there is a speaker 2 in which the
calculated setting value and the setting value stored in the setting storage unit 13 are different.
In the case of No at step S30, the present process ends. On the other hand, in the case of Yes in
step S30, in step S31, the setting processing unit 11 calculates the setting that is calculated for
the corresponding device, that is, the speaker 2 whose setting value calculated and the setting
value stored in the setting storage unit 13 are different. Send a value Further, in step S32, the
setting processing unit 11 of the television 1 stores the calculated setting value in the setting
storage unit 13. Thereafter, when the setting reflecting unit 22 of the speaker 2 acquires the
setting value from the television 1 via the setting receiving unit 21 in step S33, the setting
reflecting unit 22 reflects the setting value, and the process ends.
[0047]
Thus, in the television system 1000 according to the present embodiment, the television 1
calculates the setting value of each speaker 2 based on the device information and the position
information of the speaker 2 collected by the mobile device 3, and The setting value is reflected
on the speaker 2 by transmission. That is, for example, even if the user changes the installation
location of the speaker 2 due to cleaning or changing the room, the mobile device 3 collects the
changed position information and transmits it to the television 1 and the television 1 The setting
value based on the position information of the speaker 2 after the change is reflected on each
speaker 2. Therefore, the television 1 can automatically form an optimum viewing space
according to the installation place of the speaker 2.
[0048]
10-05-2019
13
Second Embodiment In the first embodiment, the television 1 transmits the setting value to the
speaker 2. However, depending on the installation location of the speaker 2, the speaker 2 may
not normally receive the setting value due to an obstacle or the like. is there. Therefore, in the
present embodiment, a configuration in which the television 1 transmits the setting value to the
speaker 2 via the mobile device 4 will be described.
[0049]
FIG. 3 is a functional block diagram showing the configuration of the television system 1001 of
the present embodiment. The television system 1001 shown in the figure is different from the
television system 1000 shown in FIG. 1 in that a setting reception unit 41, a relay processing unit
42 and a setting transmission unit 43 are newly provided in the mobile apparatus 4. Hereinafter,
the description of the same configuration as that of the first embodiment will be omitted, and a
configuration different from that of the first embodiment will be described.
[0050]
As shown in FIG. 3, the mobile apparatus 4 includes a setting reception unit 41, a relay
processing unit 42, and a setting transmission unit 43 in addition to the configuration of the first

setting value of the speaker 2 transmitted from the setting transmitting unit 12 of the television
1, and outputs the same to the relay processing unit 42.
The relay processing unit 42 refers to the collected information storage unit 32 and acquires the
position information of the speaker 2 as the transmission destination of the setting value. The
relay processing unit 42 moves the own device to the position corresponding to the acquired
position information via the movement processing unit 31. When the own device moves to the
position of the speaker 2 to which the setting value is transmitted, the relay processing unit 42
transmits the setting value to the speaker 2 via the setting transmission unit 43 configured by an
infrared transmission unit or the like.
10-05-2019
14
[0052]
Thereby, the setting reflecting unit 22 of the speaker 2 acquires the setting value from the
mobile device 4 via the setting receiving unit 21 and reflects the setting value.
[0053]
Next, the process flow of the television system 1001 will be described with reference to FIG.
Although the process from step S30 to step S44 is shown in the drawing, the process from step
S11 to step S29 (not shown) which is the process before step S30 is the process from step S11 to
step S29 shown in FIG. It is the same as the processing, and illustration and explanation are
omitted for simplification.
[0054]
In step S30, the setting processing unit 11 determines whether there is a speaker 2 in which the
calculated setting value and the setting value stored in the setting storage unit 13 are different.
In the case of No at step S30, the present process ends. On the other hand, in the case of Yes in
step S30, in step S31, the setting processing unit 11 transmits the setting value for the speaker 2
in which the calculated setting value and the setting value stored in the setting storage unit 13
are different. Do. Further, in step S32, the setting processing unit 11 of the television 1 stores the
calculated setting value in the setting storage unit 13.
[0055]
In step S41, when the relay processing unit 42 of the mobile device 3 acquires the setting value
through the setting receiving unit 41, the relay processing unit 42 refers to the collected
information storage unit 32, and detects the position information of the speaker 2 as the
transmission destination of the setting value. get. In step S42, the relay processing unit 42 moves
the own device to a position corresponding to the acquired position information via the
movement processing unit 31. In step S43, the relay processing unit 42 transmits the setting
value to the speaker 2 via the setting transmission unit 43. In step S44, the setting reflection unit
22 of the speaker 2 reflects the setting value acquired from the mobile device 4 via the setting
reception unit 21. Thus, the present process ends.
10-05-2019
15
[0056]
As described above, according to the present embodiment, the television 1 moves the mobile
device 4 to the vicinity of the speaker 2 and transmits the setting value to the speaker 2 via the
mobile device 4. Therefore, even if the speaker 2 is installed at a place where communication
with the television 1 is affected, the setting value can be reliably reflected on the speaker 2.
Similarly, the mobile device 4 may move to the position of the television 1 when transmitting the
device data of the speaker 2 to the television 1 or receiving setting values from the television 1.
[0057]
In the first and second embodiments, the device information transmission unit 23 and the device
information storage unit 24 of the speaker 2 are configured by an RF tag or the like, and the
device information acquisition unit 342 acquires device information via a read radio wave.

the device information of the speaker 2 is acquired by imaging. In addition, a reference image is
printed on a preset surface (for example, the front or the like) of the speaker 2, and the device
information acquisition unit 342 captures the reference image with a camera or the like, and
acquires the orientation in which the speaker 2 is installed as device information. You may do it.
In addition, the direction of the speaker 2 can be estimated by using a highly directional RF tag.
In that case, by providing a shield or the like so that only the predetermined direction is within
the detectable range, the estimation accuracy of the direction of the speaker 2 is improved.
Furthermore, the direction may be estimated based on the detection strength of the RF tag at a
plurality of locations around the speaker 2.
[0058]
In the first and second embodiments, the speaker 2 has been described as an example of the
external device. However, any device that can be interlocked with the television 1 may be used,
for example, a lighting device. In this case, the setting processing unit 11 of the television 1
calculates, for example, the illuminance or the like suitable for the viewing space as the setting
