(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR IMPLEMENTING A TIMELINE SCROLLER TO NAVIGATE MEDIA ASSET IDENTIFIERS

Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods are provided herein to ease the process of navigating media asset identifiers. Control circuitry may generate a timeline scroller that does not obscure media asset identifiers for simultaneous display with the media asset identifiers. When a user makes contact with the timeline scroller (e.g., by touching it with a finger on a touch screen device), control circuitry may responsively generate for display an indicator of a time corresponding with the point where the contact is made. Control circuitry may cause this indicator to be updated as a user scrolls along the timeline scroller. Control circuitry may refrain from updating the listings to correspond with the time until the user discontinues making contact with the timeline scroller (e.g., by removing the finger from the touch screen).

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant de faciliter le traitement d'exploration d'identificateurs d'actif multimédia. Des circuits de commande peuvent générer une barre de défilement chronologique qui ne masque pas des identificateurs d'actif multimédia à des fins d'affichage simultané avec les identificateurs d'actif multimédia. Lorsqu'un utilisateur établit un contact avec la barre de défilement chronologique (par exemple, en la touchant d'un doigt sur un dispositif à écran tactile), des circuits de commande peuvent en réponse générer, à des fins d'affichage, un indicateur d'une heure correspondant au point d'établissement du contact. Des circuits de commande peuvent provoquer une mise à jour de cet indicateur lorsqu'un utilisateur effectue un défilement le long de la barre de défilement chronologique. Des circuits de commande permettent d'éviter de mettre à jour les listes pour qu'elles correspondent avec l'heure jusqu'à ce que l'utilisateur interrompe le contact avec la barre de défilement chronologique (par exemple, en retirant le doigt de l'écran tactile).
