Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system for establishing and maintaining connections and confirming format compatibility between units (40, 46, 50), subunits (56) and content on a network includes a graphical user interface (308) which is utilized to allow a user to establish compatible connections between devices (40, 46, 50, 56) on a network. Within the graphical user interface, the user is presented with selections for compatible source devices (40, 46, 50, 56) to a specified destination device (46, 50, 56), compatible destination devices (46, 50, 56) to a specified source device (40, 46, 50, 56) or available source and destination devices.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système permettant d'établir et de maintenir des connexions ainsi que de confirmer la compatibilité de formats entre les unités (40, 46, 50), les sous-unités (56) et le contenu d'un réseau. Ce système comprend une interface graphique (308) qui permet à l'utilisateur d'établir des connexions compatibles entre les dispositifs (40, 46, 50, 56) d'un réseau. Dans l'interface graphique, l'utilisateur se voit proposer des sélections de dispositifs source compatibles (40, 46, 50, 56) pour un dispositif de destination spécifié (46, 50, 56), de dispositifs de destination compatibles (46, 50, 56) pour un dispositif source spécifié (40, 46, 50, 56), ou à la fois des dispositifs source et de destination disponibles.
