Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR RESUMING A MEDIA ASSET
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE REPRISE D'UN ACTIF MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods address shortcomings in conventional systems by resuming a media asset from a logical point. In some aspects, the systems and methods receive a first input at a first time from a user to pause a media asset at a first position and a second input at a second time from the user to resume the media asset. The systems and methods further determine whether a time period between the first and the second time exceeds a threshold time period. In response to determining that the time period does not exceed the threshold time period, the systems and methods generate the media asset for display beginning at the first position. However, in response to determining that the time period exceeds the threshold, the systems and methods generate the media asset for display beginning at a second position preceding the first position.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés visant à combler les lacunes dans des systèmes classiques par la reprise d'un actif multimédia à partir d'un point logique. Selon certains aspects, les systèmes et les procédés reçoivent une première entrée à un premier moment d'un utilisateur pour mettre en pause un actif multimédia à une première position et une seconde entrée à un second moment à partir de l'utilisateur pour reprendre l'actif multimédia. Les systèmes et les procédés déterminent en outre si une période de temps entre le premier et le second moment dépasse une période de temps seuil. En réponse à la détermination du fait que la période de temps ne dépasse pas la période de temps seuil, les systèmes et les procédés génèrent l'actif multimédia pour un affichage commençant à la première position. Cependant, en réponse à la détermination du fait que la période de temps dépasse le seuil, les systèmes et les procédés génèrent l'actif multimédia pour un affichage commençant à une seconde position précédant la première position.
