Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR RETRIEVING SEGMENTED MEDIA GUIDANCE DATA
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE RÉCUPÉRATION DE DONNÉES DE GUIDAGE MULTIMÉDIA SEGMENTÉES
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods are presented for reducing network traffic when retrieving media guidance data. For example, a media guidance application receives a first user selection to display a group of media asset identifiers (e.g., video-on-demand listings) and retrieves detailed information from a remote server relating to the media asset identifiers to display to a user. The media guidance application then may receive a user selection to display a second group of media asset identifiers (e.g., purchased media assets). If any of the media asset identifiers are common to both groups, then the media guidance application already obtained the detailed information and the detailed information does not need to be retransmitted in order to be displayed. Thus, the media guidance application only retrieves detailed information for media asset identifiers unique to the second group of media asset identifiers (e.g., they are only on the purchased media asset list).
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour réduire le trafic de réseau lors de la récupération de données de guidage multimédia. Par exemple, une application de guidage multimédia reçoit une première sélection d'utilisateur pour afficher un groupe d'identifiants d'actif multimédia (par exemple, des listes de vidéo à la demande) et récupère des informations détaillées à partir d'un serveur distant concernant les identifiants d'actif multimédia à afficher à un utilisateur. L'application de guidage multimédia peut ensuite recevoir une sélection d'utilisateur pour afficher un second groupe d'identifiants d'actif multimédia (par exemple, des contenus multimédias achetés). Si n'importe lequel des identifiants d'actif multimédia est commun aux deux groupes, alors l'application de guidage multimédia a déjà obtenu les informations détaillées et les informations détaillées n'ont pas besoin pas d'être retransmises afin d'être affichées. Ainsi, l'application de guidage multimédia récupère uniquement des informations détaillées pour des identifiants d'actif multimédia uniques au second groupe d'identifiants d'actif multimédia (par exemple, ils sont uniquement sur la liste d'actif multimédia acheté).
