Title
(EN) INTERACTIVE DISTRIBUTED MULTIMEDIA SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME MULTIMÉDIA INTERACTIF DISTRIBUÉ
Abstract
(EN) Systems and methods for providing an interactive multimedia experience are described. For example, a method for providing interactive content includes receiving content data, receiving an indication of a region within a frame of the content data, receiving a scripting event associated with the region, wherein the scripting event specifies an action to be taken responsive to a trigger, receiving a metadata tag or a reference to the metadata tag, the metadata tag associated with the region, and formatting at least a portion of the content data, the indication of the region, the scripting event, and the metadata tag or the reference to the metadata tag in accordance with a file format for transmission.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour la fourniture d'une expérience multimédia interactive. Par exemple, un procédé pour la fourniture d'un contenu interactif consiste à : recevoir des données de contenu ; recevoir une indication d'une région à l'intérieur d'une trame des données de contenu ; recevoir un événement de script associé à la région, l'événement de script spécifiant une action devant être exécutée en réponse à une commande ; recevoir une étiquette de métadonnées ou une référence à l'étiquette de métadonnées, l'étiquette de métadonnées étant associée à la région ; et formater au moins une partie des données de contenu, l'indication de la région, l'événement de script, et l'étiquette de métadonnées ou la référence à l'étiquette de métadonnées, selon un format de fichier pour la transmission.
