Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS TO DETECT CONTENT SKIPPING BY A CONSUMER OF A RECORDED PROGRAM
(FR) PROCEDES ET SYSTEME POUR DETECTER UN CONTENU NON LU D'UNE EMISSION ENREGISTREE PAR UN CONSOMMATEUR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus to detect content skipping by a consumer of a recorded program are disclosed. A data logging device (26) stores a plurality of recording times of sections of a recorded program in association with playback times of the recorded program. Playback intervals between sequential pairs of the playback times are compared with corresponding recording intervals between sequential pairs of the recording times to determine if any portion of the recorded program was not played back in real time.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés et un système qui permettent de détecter un contenu non lu d'une émission enregistrée par un consommateur. Un dispositif d'enregistrement de données (26) stocke une pluralité de temps d'enregistrement de sections d'une émission enregistrée associés à des temps de lecture de l'émission enregistrée. Des intervalles de lecture entre des paires séquentielles des temps de lecture sont comparés à des intervalles d'enregistrement correspondants entre des paires séquentielles des temps d'enregistrement afin de déterminer si une quelconque partie de l'émission enregistrée n'a pas été lue en temps réel.
