Video phones are known for enabling both video and audio communications between users over a commonly connected telephone line. Video phone systems are a communication terminal equipment simultaneously executing an audio communication and a video communication through a telephone line. In recent years, the technology for video-conferencing has advanced to a level where it has become practical for office and home use. The use of a video phone unit for transmitting a moving picture has been rapidly developing along with the increasing use of digital communication networks. A video telephone combines an image capture device, an image display device, and a codec for coding and decoding the image. The image capture device is usually combined with a signal generator within a video camera. In a video phone unit, the moving picture of one speaker is photographed by a movable television camera before being transmitted to the other speaker. A video telephone system is usually provided with a video signal coder/decoder (CODEC) which encodes an input video signal to obtain a signal or decodes such signal into an image signal. A voice signal CODEC encodes an input voice signal to obtain a signal or decodes such signal into a voice signal. The data coded by the video signal and voice signal CODECs are multiplexed and the data is then transmitted as data to a distant video telephone system. A video telephone is operated, unlike the ordinary telephone set, by receiving its power from an external power source. The video telephone has high power consumption because the video telephone is provided with a monitor, camera and codec which require high speed encoding operations. Some video phones are widely used for home and office buildings for identifying visitors outside the door. When a visitor presses a bell button located at the door, a camera installed outside the door captures an image of the visitor, and the video image is transmitted to the video phone installed inside the house.
