Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MANAGING STREAMING SERVICES
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION DE SERVICES DE DIFFUSION EN CONTINU
Abstract:
(EN) A gateway for location at a user premises is provided. Bother users and user devices are registered with the gateway which is provided by a service provider. Users access services, such as video streaming, on their user devices via the gateway. The gateway allows users to share content. The gateway collects information about the user's patterns of behaviour for the system provider, and can be used to directly obtain feedback from the users.
(FR) L'invention concerne une passerelle destinée à être localisée dans les locaux d'un utilisateur. A la fois les utilisateurs et les dispositifs d'utilisateur sont enregistrés avec la passerelle qui est fournie par un fournisseur de services. Les utilisateurs accèdent à des services, tels qu'une diffusion en continu de vidéo, sur leurs dispositifs d'utilisateur par l'intermédiaire de la passerelle. La passerelle permet aux utilisateurs de partager un contenu. La passerelle collecte des informations concernant des modèles de comportement de l'utilisateur pour le fournisseur de système, et peut être utilisée pour obtenir directement une rétroaction à partir des utilisateurs.
