  • Publication number: 20080033800
    Abstract: The multi-media object management system functions to manage the delivery of product placements in a Multi-Media Program. The multi-media object management system controls the retrieval of Object Data that comprises a product representation and the integration of this Object Data into a corresponding selected one of the predetermined Multi-Media Object Locations which are components of the Multi-Media Program This enables advertisers to precisely control product placement on a customized basis thereby to dynamically modify the content of the Multi-Media Program on a centralized basis, a regional basis, or as it is delivered to the individual recipient, using recipient-specific data to define the object preferences of the recipient.

  • Publication number: 20080033802
    Abstract: The present multi-media object management system controls the retrieval of Object Data that comprises an object representation (such as a product) and the integration of this Object Data into a corresponding selected one of the predetermined Multi-Media Object Locations which are components of the Multi-Media Program. This enables advertisers to precisely control product placement on a customized basis thereby to dynamically modify the content of the Multi-Media Program as it is delivered to the individual recipient. There are a number of methods by which the Multi-Media Object Locations can be brokered, with International, National, Regional, Local, and Personal markets being defined, as well as exclusive rights and conditional rights, all available to the purchaser by means of auction, predefined contracts, or other financial arrangements.

  • Publication number: 20080015933
    Abstract: The multi-media object management system functions to manage the delivery of product placements in a Multi-Media Program. The multi-media object management system controls the creation of predetermined Multi-Media Object Locations and associated Object Management Data which are components of the Multi-Media Program. This enables advertisers to precisely control product placement on a customized basis to thereby dynamically modify the content of the Multi-Media Program on a centralized basis, a regional basis, or as it is delivered to the individual recipient. The multi-media object management system produces object-ready content for distribution on removable media or via a network.
