Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR COMMUNICATING INFORMATION
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE COMMUNIQUER DES INFORMATIONS
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for communicating information between a remote location and a user. Information from the remote location or the user is received by the inventive apparatus and processed by configurable circuitry (50) to a form that can be received and used by the intended recipient. The configurable circuitry can be changed manually by a human user (140) or remotely through the receipt of the appropriate signals. Accordingly, the apparatus can be reconfigurable to be able to receive information that is transmitted in different forms from those forms that are receivable before reconfiguration.
(FR)
Procédé et appareil permettant de communiquer des informations entre un site à distance et un utilisateur. Les informations provenant du site à distance ou de l'utilisateur sont reçues par l'appareil selon la présente invention et traitées par un circuit (50) configurable, de manière à prendre une forme qui peut être reçue et utilisée par le destinataire prévu. Ledit circuit configurable peut être modifié manuellement par un utilisateur humain (140) ou à distance grâce à la réception des signaux appropriés. Par conséquent, ledit appareil peut être reconfigurable afin d'être capable de recevoir des informations qui sont transmises sous des formes différentes des formes qui pouvaient être reçues avant la reconfiguration.
