Title: Host device and picture image output device

Abstract: Picture image output processing is performed that takes into consideration the time elapsed from when picture image output demands are made by a user to when the output results are acquired. A host device or information processing device includes a position information memory that stores information based on the respective positional relationships of the host device main body and multiple picture image output devices. A picture image output device selector determines which picture image output device the picture image information is transmitted to using the information based on these positional relationships. The picture image output device also includes position information memory that stores information based on the respective positional relationships of the picture image output device main body and multiple host devices. A picture image output priority determiner determines from which host device the picture image information is received using the information based on these positional relationships.
