Title (EN) VIRTUAL JUKEBOX
(FR) CHARGEUR MULTIDISQUE VIRTUEL
Abstract:
(EN) A collection management system, or virtual jukebox, is provided for a collection of recordings that is independent of the physical media upon which the material is recorded. The system forms a part of a network that includes storage media and playback devices, and provides an easy to use system for collection cataloging, archiving, and retrieval. In a preferred embodiment, a collection management system resides on a consumer electronic (CE) device, or a personal or home computer (PC), and the collection includes recordings that are stored on one or more hard drives associated with the CE device or the PC. The collection management system includes a user interface that facilitates the retrieval of recordings for playback from one or more storage devices, based on an individual selection of genre, author, and so on. By storing the recordings on a hard disc drive or other mass storage device with an associated disk operating system, immediate access is available to each recording on the drive, and additional drives can be added to the system as new material is added to the collection.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de gestion de collection, ou chargeur multidisque virtuel, qui permet de stocker une collection d'enregistrements indépendamment des supports physiques sur lesquels ces enregistrements sont effectués. Le système de l'invention fait partie d'un réseau qui comprend des supports mémoire et des dispositifs de lecture, et il constitue un système d'emploi facile permettant le catalogage, l'archivage et la récupération de la collection d'enregistrements. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, un système de gestion de collection réside sur un dispositif électronique d'usage direct, ou sur un ordinateur personnel ou familial, et la collection comprend des enregistrements stockés sur une ou plusieurs unités de disque dur associée(s) au dispositif électronique d'usage direct ou à l'ordinateur personnel. Le système de gestion de collection comprend une interface utilisateur qui facilite la récupération des enregistrements en vue de leur lecture à partir d'un ou plusieurs supports mémoire, en fonction d'une sélection personnalisée basée sur le genre, l'auteur, ou sur d'autres critères. Etant donné que les enregistrements sont stockés sur une unité de disque dur ou sur un autre support mémoire de masse associé au système d'exploitation sur disque, il est possible d'avoir un accès immédiat à chaque enregistrement sur l'unité, et des unités supplémentaires peuvent être ajoutées au système au fur et à mesure que de nouveaux enregistrements viennent enrichir la collection.
