Title
(EN) INTERACTIVE CABLE NETWORK PROVIDING FAX AND VOICE MAIL
(FR) RESEAU CABLE INTERACTIF FOURNISSANT DES SERVICES DE TELECOPIE ET DE COURRIER VOCAL
Abstract
(EN) A system is provided that enhances the interactivity of multimedia information in a closed cable network such as a hotel system or the like. The system includes a multimedia processing system (102), a telephone system (108'), a video control system (104'), a service operations platform (107), and a plurality of interactive devices (110', 125, 112, 114, 117, 119, 121, 123). This system has the advantage of providing compression and/or transmission algorithms to maximize enhancement of the multimedia information. The system also allows for sending facsimile and voice mail messages on the closed cable system. The system allows for enhanced interactivity with a closed cable system with minimum modification to the existing network.
(FR) On décrit un système augmentant l'interactivité d'informations multimédia dans un réseau en circuit fermé, tel qu'un hôtel ou analogue. Ce système comprend un dispositif (102) de traitement multimédia, un téléphone (108'), une commande vidéo (104'), une plate-forme de soutien logistique, ainsi qu'une pluralité de modules interactifs (110', 125, 112, 114, 117, 119, 121, 123). Ce système présente l'avantage de fournir des algorithmes de compression et/ou de transmission afin de maximiser l'accroissement des informations multimédia. Le système de l'invention permet l'envoi, sur le système en circuit fermé, de télécopies et de messages électroniques vocaux et, grâce à une modification minime du réseau existant, il permet une interactivité accrue avec un système en circuit fermé.
