Title
(EN) METHOD OF PRESENTING A SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE PRÉSENTATION D'UNE PROGRAMMATION D'ÉVÉNEMENTS
Abstract
(EN)
A method of presenting a schedule of events on a screen, includes obtaining data representative of events and associated time intervals of availability to a receiver (1,2) of signals corresponding to the events. Events having a time interval of availability within a time range are identified. Fields are displayed within a screen area such that at least one dimension of the screen area indicates a time frame, and a respective field (24-32) is associated with each event having a time interval of availability within the time frame and is caused to occupy a section of the screen area commensurate with the time interval's position within the time frame. The time frame's duration is calculated on the basis of a shortest duration of a time interval of availability of any of the identified events.

Cette invention a pour objet un procédé de présentation d'une programmation d'événements sur un écran, qui consiste à obtenir des données représentatives d'événements et des intervalles de temps associés de la disponibilité à un récepteur (1, 2) des signaux correspondant aux événements. Les événements possédant un intervalle de temps de disponibilité dans une plage de temps sont identifiés. Des champs sont affichés dans une zone d'écran de telle sorte qu'au moins une dimension de la zone d'écran indique une trame temporelle, et un champ respectif (24-32) est associé à chaque événement possédant un intervalle de temps de disponibilité dans la trame temporelle et est amené à occuper une section de la zone d'écran de même mesure que la position de l'intervalle de temps dans la trame temporelle. La durée de la trame temporelle est calculée sur la base de la durée la plus courte d'un intervalle de temps de disponibilité de n'importe lequel des événements identifiés.
