  • Patent number: 8819747
    Abstract: A contents receiving system uses a digital broadcast wave or a broadband network to enable a user to suitably view main content, and provide a user with subsidiary content information desired by the user. Each of subsidiary content control receivers A (101), B (102) transmits ID information specific to each of the subsidiary content control receivers A (101), B (102), and a request for acquiring subsidiary content, from a communication control unit (405) to a main content receiving display unit 100. The main content receiving display unit 100 uses a content separation control unit (310) to separate a stream into subsidiary content corresponding to the request. Then, a request information input/transmission control unit (313) transmits the separated subsidiary content and the received ID information to the subsidiary content control receiver in question. The subsidiary content control receiver judges from the ID information that the subsidiary content should be acquired.

  • Publication number: 20120201509
    Abstract: In order to watch existing contents by using different information apparatus, the contents are converted into formats suitable for respective information apparatus to be implemented, but implementation of interaction for bidirectionality is not solved. In order to implement watching the contents in all information receiving apparatus, a playback/capture content processing device, a content conversion unit, a content analysis processing unit extracting an operation object of a remote controller from converted video information, a distribution processing unit, and an interaction analysis/control unit are provided. The interaction analysis/control unit acquires operation information of a remote controller device in an information receiving apparatus side, preserves matching information with the operation object extracted by the content analysis processing unit in real time on a database, and controls content information of the playback/capture content processing device in real time.

  • Publication number: 20090178091
    Abstract: The playback of contents in the course of progressive download is stopped depending on the information of the contents and network environments. Also, contents in the course of the playback of progressive download cannot be fast forwarded. When progressive download is indicated, a contents receiving terminal dynamically allocates resources (bus band, CPU, etc.) used in other stream processing within the receiving terminal and fast downloads a portion not downloaded to avoid the interruption of playing contents. Furthermore, the receiving terminal transmits a required communication band to a home gateway, which performs band control with other communications within a home network to allocate a maximum allocatable communication band to the contents receiving terminal.

  • Publication number: 20080216143
    Abstract: An IP broadcast terminal 30 is connected with a multicast address management device 10 for IP broadcast that holds multicast information via an IP multicast network 40 over which IP broadcast service is provided, and when a user issues a request to change an IP broadcast channel, generates a query message including an IP broadcast channel identifier requested from the IP broadcast terminal 30 to transmits it to the multicast address management device 10 for IP broadcast. The IP broadcast terminal 30 receives a response message showing the correspondence between IP broadcast channel identifiers and multicast addresses from the multicast address management device 10 for IP broadcast, and transmits a video reception request message to a multicast group decided for reception.

  • Publication number: 20080134171
    Abstract: A computer system including plural computers, a management console for installing a program in the computers and a storage subsystem coupled to each computer and management console. The storage subsystem includes a first storage unit shared by the computers and plural second storage units corresponding to the computers. The first storage unit stores a file related to each installed program and an installer program for installing a program. The second storage units each store an install agent and a control file accessed by the install agent. The management console includes an install manager for starting each install agent by switching on power to a corresponding computer. Upon starting, the install agent starts the installer program based on the control file. The installer program reads a related file from the first storage unit, and transfers it to the second storage unit of the corresponding computer, thereby installing the program.
