Title
(EN) THE INFORMATION STATION
(FR) POSTE D'INFORMATIONS
Abstract
(EN) An information station method and apparatus afford containment, presentation and updating of information used passively or in interactive formats whereby computer (10), computer graphics, video (20) and audio and voice sources combine in display for participant's use, programming and integrating to draw from autoserved contained material in properly conditioned and radiation shielded environments and from added information received from external sources. The information station (1) may be incorporated in a self-contained case for specific applications or may exist with extensive resources contained as a hub for multiple and varied display terminal configurations. The terminal design, one with no moving parts, allows the participant touch response (5) and voice response input modes, present state of the art monitor display (3) and optionally higher resolution, and audio and voice coded in a tactile armband or synthesized with speech sound crystal output modulated to trace voice pitch. Information contained in flexible film videodiscs is stored in autochangers (2) and automatically discs feed into videodisc players allowing uninterrupted, multidisc presentations and dual or multiple disc programming.
(FR) Procédé et appareil de poste d'informations permettant de contenir, de présenter et de mettre à jour des informations utilisées passivement ou dans des formats interactifs, dans lesquels des sources informatiques (10), d'infographie, vidéo (20) audio et vocales sont réunies sous forme de visualisation destinée à l'utilisateur, à la programmation et à l'intégration afin de permettre l'extraction de données déjà stockées, délivrées automatiquement dans des environnements correctement conditionnés et protégés des rayonnements, et de données ajoutées reçues de sources extérieures. Le poste d'informations (1) peut être incorporé dans une caisse autonome pour des applications spécifiques ou peut être équipé de ressources étendues intégrées, comme pivot pour des configurations de terminaux de visualisation multiples et variées. La conception du terminal, sans parties mobiles, permet les modes d'entrée de réponse par effleurement (5) et de réponse vocale de l'utilisateur, les écrans de visualisation (3) actuels et facultativement à plus haute résolution, à code audio et vocal dans un bracelet tactile ou avec une sortie à synthétiseur de paroles à cristaux modulée pour suivre la tessiture de la voix. Les données contenues dans des vidéo-disquettes sur films souples sont stockées dans des changeurs automatiques (2), lesdits disques étant amenés automatiquement dans les lecteurs de vidéo disques, ce qui permet des présentations multidisques ininterrompues ainsi que la programmation de deux disques ou multi-disques.
