Title (EN) A METHOD AND A SYSTEM FOR ENABLING REAL-TIME PARTICIPATION OF A MASS VIEWER AUDIENCE IN AN INTERACTIVE TELEVISION PROGRAM
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME PERMETTANT LA PARTICIPATION EN TEMPS REEL DU PUBLIC DANS UN PROGRAMME TELEVISE INTERACTIF
Abstract:
(EN) A method for enabling real-time participation of a mass viewer audience in an interactive television program broadcasted from a broadcast station and displayed live on at least one television screen is described. The method comprises broadcasting a video signal to all television screens of the viewers watching the interactive program comprising contents of the interactive program that are common to all viewers and that include at least one participation code to be input by the viewers into a communica¬ tion device for enabling the viewers of the interactive program to actively participate in the interactive program; establishing a 2-way communica¬ tion path between the broadcast station and the communication device based on an Internet Protocol (IP), upon inputting a participation code of the at least one participation code into the communication device; receiv¬ ing real-time responses to the interactive program from the participating viewers inputting further codes corresponding to their real-time responses into their communication devices; generating, transmitting and displaying common real-time information on the television screen of all viewers watching the interactive program based on the received real-time re¬ sponses; and generating, transmitting and displaying personal real-time information on the television screen of a specific viewer watching the in¬ teractive program based on the received real-time response of said specific viewer. Further a corresponding system is described.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé permettant la participation en temps réel du public dans un programme télévisé interactif radiodiffusé à partir d'une station de radiodiffusion et diffusé en direct sur au moins un écran de télévision. Ledit procédé consiste à radiodiffuser un signal vidéo à tous les écrans de télévision des téléspectateurs regardant le programme interactif, comprenant le contenu du programme interactif commun à tous les télespectateurs et comprenant au moins un code de participation que les téléspectateurs du programme interactif doivent entrer dans un dispositif de communication pour pouvoir participer activement au programme interactif; à établir une voie de communication bidirectionnelle entre la station de radiodiffusion et le dispositif de communication basée sur un protocole IP, avec l'entrée du code de participation dans le dispositif de communication; à recevoir des réponses en temps réel au programme interactif des téléspectateurs participants entrant d'autres codes correspondant à leurs réponses en temps réel dans leurs dispositifs de communication; à générer, transmettre et afficher des informations communes en temps réel sur l'écran de télévision de tous les téléspectateurs regardant le programme interactif à partir des réponses en temps réel reçues, et à générer, transmettre et afficher des informations personnelles en temps réel sur l'écran de télévision d'un téléspectateur spécifique regardant le programme interactif en fonction de la réponse reçue en temps réel du téléspectateur spécifique. L'invention concerne, de plus, un système correspondant.
