I was thinking of using some kind of meta text strings in my midi file. 
Just like a note on/off event with a location. So, for example, at 
offset xxx I'd have "display charlie.jpg" or something like that. My off 
the wall thought was that I'd just have some text events in a specific 
track and then send the track to the display program.
