Operation apparatus and image processing system using the apparatus
WO 1997014089 A1
Abstract
An operation apparatus is connected to an image display apparatus for generating image data to be displayed on a display in accordance with a program. The operation apparatus supplies those signals which impart changes to the image data in accordance with the operation of an operator to the image display apparatus. A joystick includes a lever and a disk that turns with the motion of the lever, and the revolution of the disk is detected by a photointerrupter. Pulses from the photointerrupter are counted by a counter which can be reset by a reset signal. The reset signal is applied from a CPU of the image display apparatus to the counter when three buttons are simultaneously pushed or a power source is turned ON.
