Title (EN) CONTEXTUAL COMMERCE FOR VIEWERS OF VIDEO PROGRAMMING
(FR) CONTEXTUAL COMMERCE FOR VIEWERS OF VIDEO PROGRAMMING COMMERCE CONTEXTUEL POUR TÉLÉSPECTATEURS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for enabling a viewer to watch television in the usual manner, while providing the viewer with an opportunity to indicate interest in products contextually associated with, but not necessarily displayed, in the television programs viewed, are described. Viewer interest might be indicated, for example, by launching a widget from an icon located on the TV video receiver using a handheld remote controller in communication with a set-top box during the program. The program being viewed may then be identified, for example, by the selected channel, the name of the program, the episode, and the time of the selection, or a combination of these indicators. The selections are transmitted by the set-top box to a remote search server, which returns information to the viewer on a portion of the TV video receiver concerning available products contextually related to the program being viewed.
(FR)An apparatus and method for enabling a viewer to watch television in the usual manner, while providing the viewer with an opportunity to indicate interest in products contextually associated with, but not necessarily displayed, in the television programs viewed, are described. Viewer interest might be indicated, for example, by launching a widget from an icon located on the TV video receiver using a handheld remote controller in communication with a set-top box during the program. The program being viewed may then be identified, for example, by the selected channel, the name of the program, the episode, and the time of the selection, or a combination of these indicators. The selections are transmitted by the set-top box to a remote search server, which returns information to the viewer on a portion of the TV video receiver concerning available products contextually related to the program being viewed. La présente invention concerne appareil et un procédé permettant à un téléspectateur de regarder la télévision de la même façon que d'habitude, tout en donnant à ce téléspectateur la possibilité de faire état de son intérêt pour des produits, qui sont contextuellement associés aux émissions de télévision regardées, mais qui ne sont pas nécessairement visibles à l'écran. L'intérêt du téléspectateur peut être indiqué, par exemple en lançant un gadget logiciel, à partir d'une icône située sur l'écran vidéo de la télévision, au moyen d'une télécommande communiquant avec le boîtier adaptateur pendant l'émission. D'après le canal sélectionné, il sera possible d'identifier l'émission regardée, mais aussi le nom de l'émission, l'épisode, et l'heure de la sélection, ou une combinaison de ces indicateurs. Les sélections sont transmises par le boîtier adaptateur à un serveur de recherche à distance, qui renvoie au téléspectateur, sur une partie de l'écran vidéo de la télévision, l'information concernant les produits disponibles contextuellement reliés au programme regardé. ============
