(FR) SYSTEME DE DISTRIBUTION DE CONTENU PERMETTANT DE PRODUIRE DES FLUX DE CONTENU ADAPTES A DIVERS UTILISATEURS ET DE FACILITER LES TRANSACTIONS PAR COMMERCE ELECTRONIQUE A L'AIDE DE METADONNEES DE CONTENU DIFFUSEES
Abstract
(EN)
A content distribution system is provided to facilitate e-commerce transactions for products and services associated with distributed content. A content stream comprising content blocks, reference content blocks and floating reference content blocks uses metadata to identify products and services associated with content blocks. The metadata and floating reference content blocks are used to substitute dynamically selected content for content blocks based on profiles of user(s), the broadcast station, the advertisement spot defined in the stream and content available for substitution. A market server determines optimal matches to support content substitution, and performs brokerage and bidding functions among suppliers of products or services associated with content selected by users.
(FR)
Système de distribution de contenu destiné à faciliter les transactions par commerce électronique pour des produits et des services associés à du contenu distribué. Un flux de contenu comportant des blocs de contenu, des blocs de contenu de référence et des blocs de contenu de référence flottants utilise des métadonnées pour identifier des produits et services associés à des blocs de contenu. Les métadonnées et les blocs de contenu de référence flottants sont utilisés pour remplacer par du contenu dynamiquement sélectionné des blocs de contenu sur la base de profils des utilisateurs, de la station de diffusion, du spot publicitaire défini dans le flux et du contenu disponible pour le remplacement. Un serveur de marché détermine les correspondances optimales pour supporter le remplacement du contenu et effectue des fonctions de courtage et de soumission parmi les fournisseurs de produits ou services associés au contenu sélectionné par des utilisateurs.
