Title (EN) ELECTRONIC PROGRAM GUIDE METHOD AND APPARATUS USING CAPTURED STILL IMAGE OF DIGITAL MULTIMEDIA BROADCASTING
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE GUIDE ELECTRONIQUE DES PROGRAMMES FAISANT APPEL A UNE IMAGE FIXE CAPTUREE D'UNE DIFFUSION MULTIMEDIA
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus is provided for displaying Electronic Program Guide (EPG) so as to allow a user to select a desired program in a digital broadcasting system. A still image generator captures a still image from broadcast data of each received broadcasting program, combines the captured still image with EPG data for the each broadcasting program, and stores combined data in a memory. The captured still image is displayed together with the EPG data. The method and apparatus provides the user with the captured image screen currently being transmitted in a broadcast channel rather than the previously generated fixed image, saving transmission resources of the EPG data and helping the user conveniently select channels.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé et un appareil qui permettent d'afficher un guide électronique des programmes ('Electronic Program Guide' ou EPG) afin de permettre à un utilisateur de choisir un programme désiré dans un système de diffusion numérique. Un générateur d'image fixe capture une image fixe à partir des données de diffusion de chaque programme diffusé reçu, combine l'image fixe capturée avec des données de guide électronique des programmes (EPG) pour chaque programme de diffusion, et stocke les données combinées en mémoire. L'image fixe capturée est affichée avec les données EPG. Le procédé et l'appareil de l'invention, en présentant à l'utilisateur un écran de l'image capturée actuellement transmise sur un canal de diffusion plutôt qu'une image fixe produite au préalable, permettent d'économiser les ressources de transmission des données EPG et de faciliter le choix des canaux par l'utilisateur.
