Title (EN) CHANNEL DANCER, VIRTUAL CHANNEL SCHEDULER
(FR) CHANNEL DANCER
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method (the 'Channel Dancer') of delivering broadband content that has been personalized for a recipient user is disclosed. By excelling in the personalization of the user's view of broadband content on the Internet and otherwise, the system and method develop 'stickiness' with the user that maximizes the benefits and effectiveness of advertising and related activities. The system preferably comprises a network operations center ('NOC') that receives and packages content, with promotional materials, on virtual channels, a transmission medium that transmits the virtual channels, a broadband ISP with a point-of-presence ('POP') server that receives the virtual channels and routs virtual channels to a user machine, based on request received from client software (the 'client') resident on the user machine and filtering performed by the client based on a personal profile of the user.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé (le « Channel Dancer ») permettant de distribuer un contenu à large bande, qui a été personnalisé pour un utilisateur destinataire. De par l'excellente personnalisation de la visualisation par l'utilisateur du contenu à large bande sur Internet et d'autres réseaux, ce système et procédé permettent de développer une très bonne adaptation par rapport à l'utilisateur, qui optimise l'intérêt et l'efficacité de la publicité et des activités associées. Le système comprend de préférence un centre d'exploitation de réseau (« NOC »), qui reçoit le contenu et le garnit de promotions, sur des chaînes virtuelles, un support de transmission, qui transmet les chaînes virtuelles, et un fournisseur de services Internet (ISP) à large bande, pourvu d'un serveur de point de présence (« POP ») qui reçoit lesdites chaînes virtuelles et les achemine à une machine d'utilisateur, sur la base de requêtes issues d'un logiciel client (le « client ») résidant sur ladite machine d'utilisateur et d'un filtrage réalisé par le client en fonction d'un profil personnel de l'utilisateur.
