(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE FOURNITURE DE CONTENU, DE GESTION ET D'INTERACTIVITE POUR DES DISPOSITIFS CLIENTS
Abstract
(EN)
A system and a method for providing content, management and interactivity for client devices are provided. Digital data based on user specified preferences is automatically obtained and transferred from a wide area network to a media server computer. A system control application provides streaming media services to stream-playing client media player devices, and provides digital media file synchronization services to client storage devices, via a local area network. The digital data is then automatically sent from the computer to a client device using a wired or wireless data transceiver. In one embodiment, the client device is a television. In another embodiment the client device is a portable media playback device.

L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de fourniture de contenu, de gestion et d'interactivité pour des dispositifs clients. Des données numériques fondées sur des préférences spécifiées par des utilisateurs sont automatiquement obtenues et transférées d'un réseau étendu à un ordinateur serveur multimédia. Une application de commande système fournit des services multimédia de diffusion continue à des dispositifs clients comprenant un lecteur multimédia à diffusion continue, et fournit des services de synchronisation de fichier multimédia numérique à des dispositifs clients de stockage par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau local. Les données numériques sont ensuite automatiquement envoyées de l'ordinateur à un dispositif client au moyen d'un émetteur-récepteur de données câblé ou sans fil. Dans un mode de réalisation, le dispositif client est une télévision. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, le dispositif client est un dispositif de lecture multimédia portable.
