Title: (EN) Apparatus and Method for Ordering
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

The present invention relates to an apparatus and a method for ordering an article from a plurality of articles. The apparatus or the method merely has a manageable set of identifiers. These identifiers are added to a given audio/video signal which advertises a particular article and is broadcast. If a person receiving the audio/video signal wishes to purchase the relevant article, this article can be identified by the identifier. Preferably, this identifier is a colored marker. Since the cardinality of the set of identifiers is kept relatively manageable, a plurality of articles is provided with the same identifier, that is to say the same color marker. The apparatus or the method is able to distinguish between articles with the same identifier by comparing the time at which the article was advertised with the time at which the order was received.
