Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING USER POSITION VIA WIRELESS SIGNAL CHARACTERISTICS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR DÉTERMINER LA POSITION D'UN UTILISATEUR AU MOYEN DE CARACTÉRISTIQUES DE SIGNAL SANS FIL
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods are described for presenting a television program to a viewer using a mobile television receiver. The television program is received at the mobile television receiver via a first signal transmitted by a signal source having a limited range. It is determined whether the mobile receiver will exit the limited range of the signal source and, before the mobile receiver exits the limited range of the signal source, an action is facilitated to allow the viewer to continue to view the television program. Actions that may be facilitated include tuning to an alternate source of the television program, obtaining a placeshifted media stream of the television program, recording the television program on a remote video recorder, or simply notifying the viewer that he or she is about to exit the limited range of the signal source.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour présenter un programme télévisé à un téléspectateur au moyen d'un récepteur de télévision mobile. Le programme télévisé est reçu par le récepteur de télévision mobile au moyen d'un premier signal transmis par une source de signaux ayant une portée limitée. On détermine si le récepteur mobile va sortir de la portée limitée de la source de signaux et, avant que le récepteur mobile ne sorte de la portée limitée de la source de signaux, une action est engagée pour permettre au téléspectateur de continuer à regarder le programme télévisé. Les actions qui peuvent être engagées comprennent le réglage sur une autre source du programme télévisé, l'obtention d'un flux multimédia délocalisé du programme télévisé, l'enregistrement du programme télévisé sur un enregistreur vidéo éloigné, ou la simple notification au téléspectateur qu'il ou elle est sur le point de sortir de la portée limitée de la source de signaux.
