Title
(EN) System and method for telecommunication
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a system and method for telecommunication, specifically interactive telecommunication, said system mainly comprising at least one transmission medium; user apparatus connectable to the transmission medium; server apparatus connectable to the transmission medium for exchange of information with the user apparatus; and coupling means for connecting the user apparatus and the transmission medium as desired, whereby said coupling means comprise means for controlling said user apparatus based on information from said server apparatus and for controlling said server apparatus based on information from said user apparatus; and means for creating and for performing communication with said server apparatus and said user apparatus. As a result of the above-mentioned characteristic properties of the system according to the invention, adjustment is achieved on two levels, namely adjustment of said Set-Top Unit to said transmission medium by said physical medium converter and adjustment of the communication between said Set-Top Unit and said server apparatus by programs in said Set-Top Unit originating from said server apparatus.
