  • Patent number: 9288518
    Abstract: The present disclosure is intended to facilitate the transmission of information associated with content being viewed on a public device to a private device. In response to a request from a content reception apparatus, a tablet terminal and a mobile telephone transmit information associated with an action and an application that are coordinatable with the content being displayed to the content reception apparatus. In response to a user operation, the tablet terminal selects a user-specified application from a list of applications displayed on a display of the content reception apparatus and transmits this select information to the content reception apparatus. If a coordination command of an action for coordination with an active application comes from the content reception apparatus, then the mobile telephone executes the received command. The present disclosure is applicable to information processing systems operating the content reception apparatus by using a terminal in wireless communication, for example.
