Title: AGGREGATE INFORMATION PRODUCTION AND DISPLAY SYSTEM
Abstract:
A production system (80) for packaging aggregates of mixed media information (e.g. text, images, audio, and video) into addressable packets which are transmitted to receivers over a satellite network, with the information aggregates (44) (IA's) displayed and arranged for use via an associated Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) file (82), or other such displays language file and associated interpreter. The HTML file, when interpreted and displayed, would provide an organized and easy to access presentation of the mixed-media files transmitted over the satellite network, whereby textual and graphic descriptions could be used to describe the file contents and HTML buttons would allow playback (88) and/or viewing (70) of the linked file information. The HTML file might also include a link to communications software (84, 86) for enabling data dialog with a site external to the receiving station. Still other links (88) would allow software stored locally at the receiving station to be accessed and used. A link might also be provided via the internet to external URL addresses (7).
