Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAIMS

1. System for telecommunication, 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,
characterized in that, 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.
2. Telecommunication system according to claim

1, characterized in that, said coupling means comprise a Set-Top Unit (Set-Top Unit) and a physical medium
converter, said Set-Top Unit comprises means for
controlling said user apparatus, said means mainly comprising programs for dynamic processes down-loaded from said server apparatus and stored in a RAM memory, and said means for creating communication is a program for a static process recorded in a ROM memory of the Set-Top Unit.
3. Telecommunication system according to claims 1 and 2, characterized in that, said physical medium converter is placed between said Set-Top Unit and said transmission medium.
4. Telecommunication system according to claim

2, characterized in that, said ROM memory further contains a controlprogram for recording into said RAM memory.
5. Telecommunication system according to claim 2, characterized in that, said ROM memory contains further programs for controlling an adjustment unit for a user apparatus, a program for handling calls, a decoding program and a program for remote control.
6. Telecommunication system according to claim 1, characterized in that, said coupling means are
incorporated in said user apparatus.
7. Set-Top Unit apparatus adapted to be used in the telecommunication system according to claims 1-6, comprising means for controlling user apparatus, comprising a RAM-memory for storing programs for dynamic processes and a ROM-memory for storing programs for static processes.
8. Set-Top Unit apparatus according to claim 7 , further comprising a physical medium converter for
creating and performing communication with a server apparatus.
9. Method for telecommunication between a user apparatus and a server apparatus, where information is transmitted and received via a coupling means and through a transmission medium, where transmission of information between said server and said coupling means is regulated in accordance with dynamic processes characterised by supplying said coupling means with programs for dynamic processes and storing said programs in a memory means of said coupling means.
10. Method according to claim 9, characterised by activating relevant static processes in said coupling means for connecting said user apparatus to said server apparatus and supplying information concerning said coupling means to said server apparatus.
11. Method according to one of the preceeding claims 9 - 10, characterised in that said information to be transmitted comprises interactive digital video-audio data.
12. Method for telecommunication, comprising the steps of:
- activating relevant static processes in a coupling means for connecting a user apparatus and a server
apparatus through a transmission medium;

- sending relevant information concerning said coupling means to said server apparatus;
- receiving programs for dynamic processes from said server apparatus at said coupling means and storing said programs in a memeory means thereof; and
- communicating between said server apparatus and said coupling means to regulate a stream of data in accordance with said dynamic processes.
