Abstract
(EN)
A system and method for displaying digital media files (566) with compulsory advertisement files is disclosed. In one embodiment, the system includes a user interface (500), a media file decryptor (582), an ad manager (514), an intersplicer (518), and a media player (520). The user interface receives input from a user indicating the selection of media files to be presented. The media file decryptor receives and decrypts the selected media files. The ad manager receives and manages ad files from an ad file source. The intersplicer combines the media files with the ad files by providing control signals to the media player, causing the media player to present the ad files with the selected media files. Various embodiments of the invention facilitate the wide distribution of media content in a way that allows the free use of media properties, on demand, with direct consumer exchange capabilities, while at the same time enabling compensation to copyright holders.

La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant l'affichage de fichiers multimédias comportant des fichiers publicitaires obligatoires. Selon un mode de réalisation, le système comporte une interface utilisateur, un décrypteur de fichiers multimédias, un gestionnaire d'annonces publicitaires, un module d'insertion de séquences, et un module de restitution multimédia. L'utilisateur reçoit l'entrée d'un utilisateur indiquant la sélection de fichiers multimédias à montrer. Le décrypteur de fichiers multimédias reçoit et décrypte les fichiers multimédias sélectionnés. Le gestionnaire d'annonces publicitaires reçoit et gère les fichiers d'annonces publicitaires en provenance d'une source de fichiers d'annonces publicitaires. Pour combiner aux fichiers multimédias les fichiers d'annonces publicitaires, le gestionnaire d'annonces publicitaires opère par signaux de commande adressés au module de restitution multimédia de façon qu'il montre les fichiers d'annonces publicitaires avec les fichiers multimédias sélectionnés. Divers modes de réalisation de l'invention facilitent une large distribution des contenus multimédias d'une façon permettant l'utilisation gratuite des droits multimédias, à la demande, avec possibilité d'échanges directs avec les consommateurs, tout en permettant la rétribution des détenteurs des droits audiovisuels.
