VIDEO PROCESSING

A video processor (5) receives an image signal from a camera (3), and a skin detection signal from a skin detection unit (1). The video processor (5) processes the image data to produce an output video signal (9) for display on a display means (not shown). The video processor (5) is configured to automatically adapt the image signal, for example change the skin color, based on an input signal (7). The input (7) relates to a characteristic of the image being viewed. For example, the input signal (7) may relate to an emotional characteristic of the person being viewed. The emotion of the person being viewed can be detected from the tone of voice of that person (e.g. the average pitch of the voice), or by means of a separate infrared camera, which detects heat from the face of the person being viewed. Based on the input signal (7) representing a characteristic of the object being viewed, the video processor (5) is configured to adapt the image signal accordingly. In one example, the skin color of the person is changed according to the emotion of the person. For example, the skin color of the person could be changed to red when an angry tone is detected, or grey when a calm tone is detected.
