Abstract: Program schedules together with other periodically updated information is displayed to subscribers through a cable television system. The information is derived from optical image recordings and electronically generated from digital circuitry for display in synchronized relation to audio and color signals. The optically derived and digitally generated video signals together with color control signals are combined in a video mixer to modulate the output of a cable television transmitter operating on any desired channel.
Abstract: Program schedule information recorded on film is converted into video signals by two video record players for transmission with audio signals through a selected channel to cable television subscribers. The film is incrementally advanced in reverse directions for alternate display of different information recorded on separate frames of the film under control of a sequence controller operating through relays to effect synchronized operation of the video and audio tape players.
Abstract: Television programs schedules and visual time information are displayed by projection of composite images from the frames of a film strip and slides respectively displaced in synchronism on a cyclic basis and unidirectionally advanced at the end of each regular program period under control of a timer. During film frame movement, other visual material may be projected from intermediate slides in synchronism with audio message signals.
