Title (EN) VIDEO SYSTEM SHOWING ORIGINAL CHANNEL DURING ZAPPING ON A TV
(FR) SYSTEME VIDEO AFFICHANT UNE CHAINE INITIALE DURANT LE ZAPPING SUR UNE TELEVISION
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a video system which is able to show more than one channel at the same time. If a user, after watching an original channel sufficiently long, zaps to another channel, the original channel is displayed in for example a PIP, together with the new channel in a main picture. After zapping yet to a third channel, the original channel is still displayed in the PIP. In this way, the user can keep track of the original channel while zapping other channels.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système vidéo qui permet de visualiser plus qu'une chaîne simultanément. Si un utilisateur, après visualisation d'une chaîne initiale suffisamment longtemps, zappe vers une autre chaîne, la chaîne initiale sera par exemple affichée en PIP, avec une nouvelle chaîne en image principale. Après zapping vers une troisième chaîne, la chaîne initiale s'affiche toujours en PIP. Ainsi, l'utilisateur peut garder un suivi de la chaîne initiale tout en zappant de chaînes.
