Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR A MODULAR MEDIA GUIDANCE DASHBOARD APPLICATION
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR APPLICATION DE TABLEAU DE BORD DE GUIDAGE MULTIMÉDIA MODULAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for a modular media guidance dashboard application are provided that present a customizable interactive user interface across multiple media platforms through which personalized media content listings may be delivered. In particular, the modular media guidance dashboard application categorizes listings for media content into a number of different modules that are in turn grouped under a number of different tabs within the dashboard application. The type and layout of the modules and the tabs may be configured by the users as well as by the application. Module content personalization is also permitted and may be automatically customized and updated based on learned user viewing preferences. Furthermore, the format of the dashboard application is adaptable to a variety of devices and platforms for supporting multi-platform access.

La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour application de tableau de bord de guidage multimédia modulaire possédant une interface utilisateur interactive personnalisable dans de multiples plateformes multimédia au moyen desquelles des listes de contenus multimédias personnalisées peuvent être fournies. En particulier, l'application de tableau de bord de guidage multimédia modulaire classe des listes de contenu multimédia dans un certain nombre de modules différents qui sont à leur tour regroupés sous un certain nombre d'onglets différents dans l'application de tableau de bord. Le type et la disposition des modules et des onglets peuvent être configurés par les utilisateurs de même que par l'application. La personnalisation des contenus des modules est également possible et peut être automatiquement adaptée et mise à jour en fonction de préférences de visualisation utilisateur apprises. En outre, le format de l'application de tableau de bord peut être adapté à une multitude de dispositifs et de plateformes afin qu'elle supporte l'accès multiplateformes.
