Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR USING A SECOND SCREEN DEVICE FOR INTERACTING WITH A SET TOP BOX TO ENHANCE A USER EXPERIENCE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME UTILISANT UN SECOND DISPOSITIF D'ÉCRAN POUR INTERAGIR AVEC UN BOÎTIER DÉCODEUR AFIN D'AMÉLIORER L'EXPÉRIENCE D'UN UTILISATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for displaying data related to a content displayed through a set top box (22) includes a second screen device (40) generating a content information request signal requesting data corresponding to the content, communicates the content information request signal to the set top box. A data services center aggregates data from a plurality of data sources including at least one social media source to form aggregated related content data. The set top box (22) communicates a content information signal to the second screen device (40) comprising a content identifier. The second screen device (40) generates a request for related data signal corresponding to the content using the content identifier, communicates the request for related data signal through a network, receives aggregated related content data corresponding to the content from a data services center (50) and displays the aggregated related content data on a display (42) associated therewith.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé servant à afficher des données relatives à un contenu affiché par l'intermédiaire d'un boîtier décodeur (22) comportant un second dispositif d'écran (40) générant un signal de requête d'informations de contenu demandant des données correspondant audit contenu, et communiquant ledit signal de requête d'informations de contenu au boîtier décodeur. Un centre de services de données agrège des données provenant d'une pluralité de sources de données comprenant au moins une source de média social pour former des données de contenu associées agrégées. Le boîtier décodeur (22) communique un signal d'informations de contenu contenant un élément d'identification de contenu au second dispositif d'écran (40). Le second dispositif d'écran (40) génère une requête pour un signal de données associé correspondant au contenu à l'aide de l'élément d'identification de contenu, communique ladite requête concernant le signal de données associé par l'intermédiaire du réseau, reçoit, d'un centre de services de données (50), des données de contenu associées agrégées et affiche ces données sur un écran d'affichage (42) associé.
