Title (EN) TELEPHONE SYSTEM USED FOR THE DISTRIBUTION OF ADVERTISING MESSAGES
(FR) SYSTEME TELEPHONIQUE A DIFFUSION DE MESSAGES PUBLICITAIRES
Abstract:
(EN) Process for the distribution of advertising messages (orally, via computer, or visually by announcers) on a telephone or computer link between two subscribers communicating by means of a system assembly which constitutes a private service centre. Said process is characterised by the fact that first the subscriber composes the services subscription free call number (the so-called 'green' number), then a digital vocal server receives the call and the first series of advertisements is introduced, the subscriber being asked to compose the desired subscriber number, using word over-dialling, as soon as the tone of the second outgoing line, which has then been connected, is heard. The communication is characterised by the fact that the connection is interrupted at short intervals, during which the advertising messages and slogans are interjected on the two lines. All communication between the outgoing and incoming lines is billed to the announcers, which ensures a complete free connection though at said announcers' discretion.
(FR) Ce procédé de diffusion de messages publicitaires (oraux, télématiques ou visuels par les annonceurs) sur une liaison téléphonique ou télématique entre deux abonnés pouvant communiquer au travers d'un ensemble de systèmes constituant un centre serveur privé, est caractérisé en ce que l'abonné compose d'abord le numéro libre appel (dit 'vert') d'abonnement du serveur, ou un serveur vocal numérique réceptionne l'appel, il insère la première série de publicités ou slogans puis invite l'abonné demandeur à composer directement par surnumérotation vocable, le numéro de l'abonné demandé, dès la tonalité de la deuxième ligne sortante ainsi connectée. La communication est caractérisée en ce qu'il consiste à interrompre pendant de courts intervalles de temps ladite liaison, à injecter sur les deux lignes, dans lesdits intervalles, lesdits messages publicitaires ou slogans, et à facturer la communication totale des lignes entrantes et sortantes desdits annonceurs, assurant une gratuité totale de communication sous réserve d'annonceurs.
