Title (EN) BROADCAST CHANNEL SUBSTITUTION METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE SUBSTITUTION DE CANAL DE DIFFUSION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Each of a plurality of households includes a channel substitution unit (110) which receives a normal spectrum of television channel signals and at least one substitute channel signal. The substitution unit of each household (108), upon command from a control arrangement (118), replaces a channel of the normal television channel spectrum with the substitute channel and distributes the resulting spectrum, comprising the original normal spectrum of television channel signals with one substituted channel, over a distribution medium such as an in-house distribution cable (112).
(FR)Dans une multiplicité de foyers, chaque foyer comprend une unité (10) de substitution de canal qui reçoit un spectre normal de signaux de canaux télévisuels et au moins un signal de canal de substitution. L'unité de substitution de chaque foyer (108), en recevant une directive provenant d'un agencement de commande (118), remplace un canal du spectre normal par le canal de substitution et distribue le spectre obtenu, comprenant le spectre original de signaux de canaux télévisuels ainsi qu'un canal substitué, sur un support de distribution tel qu'un cable (112) de distribution interne.
