Title (EN) DELIVERY OF MEDIA CONTENT
(FR) DISTRIBUTION D'UN CONTENU MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract:
(EN) Media content is delivered from a content delivery system (6,9) to a terminal (17) associated with a user. The content delivery system maintains a store (14) of media data to be delivered to the user when a mobile communications device (1) associated with the user transmits a signal (41) indicative that the user is able to receive the media data. During display of the media data by the output device, the device transmits data (59) to the content delivery system responsive to user activity to record delivery of the media data in a user profile (10), indicative that the content has been viewed. The activity data may be detection of movement of the user terminal, eye-tracking, face recognition, or a response to a prompt in the media content. In one embodiment, a mobile communications device (1b) transmits a beacon signal and is detected by a sensor (23) at a location associated with a viewing apparatus (17), and the location of the device is recorded in a data store associated with the monitoring system. The location is compared with locations of other devices (20) requiring data content of a predetermined category, and if the number of communications devices recorded in the store as belonging to a set and having a matching location attains a predetermined threshold, the required data content is sent to the viewing apparatus (17).
(FR) La présente invention porte sur une distribution d'un contenu multimédia. Le contenu multimédia est distribué à partir d'un système de distribution de contenu (6, 9) à un terminal (17) associé à un utilisateur. Le système de distribution de contenu conserve un magasin (14) de données multimédias à distribuer à l'utilisateur lorsqu'un dispositif de communication mobile (1) associé à l'utilisateur transmet un signal (41) indiquant que l'utilisateur est capable de recevoir les données multimédias. Pendant l'affichage des données multimédias par le dispositif de sortie, le dispositif transmet des données (59) au système de distribution de contenu à la suite d'une activité d'utilisateur pour enregistrer une distribution des données multimédias dans un profil d'utilisateur (10), indiquant que le contenu a été regardé. Les données d'activité peuvent être une détection du mouvement du terminal d'utilisateur, un suivi du regard, une reconnaissance faciale ou une réponse à une invite dans le contenu multimédia. Selon un mode de réalisation, un dispositif de communication mobile (1b) transmet un signal de balise et est détecté par un capteur (23) à un emplacement associé à un appareil de visualisation (17) et l'emplacement du dispositif est enregistré dans un magasin de données associé au système de surveillance. L'emplacement est comparé à des emplacements d'autres dispositifs (20) nécessitant un contenu de données d'une catégorie prédéterminée et, si le nombre de dispositifs de communication enregistrés dans le magasin comme appartenant à un ensemble et ayant un emplacement de correspondance atteint un seuil prédéterminé, le contenu de données requis est envoyé à l'appareil de visualisation (17).
