Title (EN) CONTENT VIEWING DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DISPLAYING CONTENT VIEWING OPTIONS THEREON
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE VISUALISATION DE CONTENU ET PROCÉDÉ D'AFFICHAGE D'OPTIONS DE VISUALISATION DE CONTENU SUR CE DISPOSITIF
Abstract:
(EN) A method of displaying a home menu interface on a content viewing device, such as a television, is described. The interface is comprised of two components: a launcher and an accelerator. Each of these components include multiple tiles. One type of launcher tile represents a content source. The user can select this tile and enable a direct link to the content source application. Only after selecting the tile, does the content source application open. An accelerator is associated with a specific content source. An accelerator tile displays content previews or enables easy playback of content provided by the content source. The user can select an accelerator tile and enable a deep link to the content, taking the user straight to the content, bypassing a hierarchy of menu options.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé d'affichage d'interface de menu initial sur un dispositif de visualisation de contenu, tel qu'une télévision. L'interface est constituée de deux composantes : un lanceur et un accélérateur. Chaque composante comprend des pavés multiples. Un type de pavé de lanceur représente une source de contenu. L'utilisateur peut sélectionner ce pavé et activer un lien direct vers l'application de source de contenu. L'application de source de contenu s'ouvre uniquement après la sélection du pavé. Un accélérateur est associé à une source de contenu spécifique. Un pavé d'accélérateur affiche des prévisualisations de contenu ou active une lecture facile d'un contenu fourni par la source de contenu. L'utilisateur peut sélectionner un pavé d'accélérateur et activer un lien profond vers le contenu, amenant ainsi l'utilisateur directement au contenu, en contournant une hiérarchie d'options de menu.
