中文EPG节目分类的方法和装置 Method and apparatus for classifying Chinese EPG program

技术领域 FIELD

本发明是一种中文EPG (Electric Program Guide电子电视节目指南)节目分类的方法和实现所述方法的装置,专门用于对电视节目进行符合中国人习惯的分类,特别涉及一种数字电视的中文EPG节目分类方法和装置。 The present invention is a Chinese EPG (Electric Program Guide electronic TV program guide) program classification method and apparatus for the implementation of the method, specifically for television programs are classified in line with the Chinese people's habits, in particular, it relates to a digital television Chinese EPG program classification method and apparatus.

背景技术 Background technique

中国电视发展至今也有半个多世纪了,从最初单一的新闻,纪实和科教节目到现在丰富多彩,缤纷呈现的娱乐,电影,电视剧等节目,中国的电视节目走出了自己一条独特的电视之路。 Chinese television development so far there are over half a century, the first single from news, documentary and science program now colorful, colorful presentation of entertainment, movies, TV shows and other programs, China's TV program out of his own a unique way of television . 中国电视也随世界的潮流进入数字电视时代。 Chinese TV also with the trend of the world into the digital TV era. 对数字电视用户来说,通过电子电视节目指南(EPG)能够了解到所有频道当前播出节目及7天内的预告节目。 Digital TV users, by electronic television program guide (EPG) can understand all the channels currently broadcast program and 7 days notice program. 假^设共有100个频道,一个频道一天的节目为30条,那么所有频道7天的节目量一共为IOOx 30 X 7 = 21, 000条,观众要寻找自己喜爱的节目,就会在节目列表中,不断的按“翻页”键来搜索自己想看的节目,造成时间和精力的浪费。 False ^ set a total of 100 channels, a channel for the 30 day program, then all channels seven-day program for the total amount IOOx 30 X 7 = 21, 000 strips, visitors to find their favorite programs, will be in the program list , and continue to press "flip" button to search your desired program, resulting in a waste of time and effort. 为了方便观众在如此大量的节目数据中搜索出自己喜爱的电视节目,需对节目进行了分类。 In order to facilitate the audience to search out their favorite TV programs in such a large amount of program data, the need for the program are classified.

由于中国电视的发展历程,完全建立在中国传统文化的基滅之上,符合中国人的传统观念和生活习惯,特别是中国人欣赏艺术的习惯,有明显的中国特色。 As the development of Chinese TV off completely built on the base of traditional Chinese culture, in line with the Chinese people's traditional ideas and habits, especially the habit of the Chinese people to appreciate art, there are obvious Chinese characteristics. 举例来说,中国的观众认为电影和电视剧是完全两个不同的概念,根本无法放在一而欧美人或其他国家的人通常把电视剧和电影放在一认为电影和中国人所说的电视剧没有区别。 For example, China's audience that movies and TV shows are two completely different concepts, but Europe simply can not put a person or people in other countries usually TV shows and movies on a movie and think Chinese people are talking about no TV the difference. 而中国人认为的一种欧美人所说的电视小说是一种冗长的电视剧。 The Chinese people believe that a European and American people said television fiction is a lengthy drama. 中国人看到欧美的一些剧场型的肥皂剧感到莫名其妙,怎么还有观众的笑声呢? Chinese people in Europe and America to see some type of theater soap opera baffled, as well as how the laughter of the audience it? 这到底是电视剧还是戏剧呢? This in the end is the drama or drama it? 在中国没有人将戏剧与音乐放在一起,所以有专门的戏剧节目和音乐节目,而在欧美或其他国家戏剧与音承是密不可分,有些民族甚至认为戏剧与音乐分开是不可想象的。 No Chinese people in the theater and music together, so there is a special program of theater and music programs, while in Europe or other countries theater and sound bearing is inseparable, and some even think that separate national drama and music is unthinkable. 这就是中外民族的文化差别。 This is the cultural difference between Chinese and foreign peoples. 照搬国外的节目分类在中国应用是不适应的,中国必须有自己特色的分类。 Copying foreign programs classification in China is not suited to the application, China must have its own distinctive classification.

公知的EPG节目分类方法是由欧洲DVB-SK Digital Video Broadcasting-Service Information欧洲数字广播电视标准业务信息组)标准组定义的,其不足在于没有考虑到我国特有的节目类型,分类标准不够清楚,没有一种专用的方法和装置帮助使用中文EPG观众在面临众多不同类型的节目时进行检索和节目定位。 Known EPG program classification by the European DVB-SK Digital Video Broadcasting-Service Information European digital broadcast television standard business information group) standard set of definitions, the drawback is that without taking into account our unique program types, classification criteria is not clear enough, no a special method and apparatus using Chinese EPG help viewers to search and locate the program in the face of the many different types of programs.

中国专利1437402A公开了一种节目分类方法,其中头端获取播出的节目,并按事先指定的协议对其进行分类,并加入节目属性和分类标识,头端播出系统对其进行TS封装并播出\在终端对接收数码流进行解复用并根据用户预制的不同方案显示一定的目录结构。 Chinese Patent 1437402A discloses a method for classification of the program, wherein the head end of the acquired broadcast program, according to the protocol specified in advance its classification, and classification identifier and a program attribute added, its head-end broadcast system TS encapsulation and broadcast \ receiving terminal demultiplexes digital stream and displaying certain user directory structure according to different schemes prefabricated. 该专利没有根据中国人观看电视的习惯对电视节目进行分类,生成符合中文习惯和要求的标准格式文件,生成和读取XLM文件,以及生成带有符合中文习惯的节目识别的节目信息表。 The patent does not perform according to the Chinese habit of watching TV on a television program classification, generate a standard format in line with Chinese habits and requirements, generate and read XLM files, and generate program identified in line with the Chinese habit of program information table.

中国专利CN1327684A和欧洲专利EP1434431A1公开了一种基于XML记述EPG的方法。 Chinese patent CN1327684A and European Patent EP1434431A1 discloses a method for XML-based description of the EPG. 但均没有公开所生成的标准格式文件符合中文习惯和节目信息表带有符合中文的节目标识以及根据中国人观看电视的习惯显示节目进行分类的特征。 But did not disclose the standard file format generated in line with Chinese characteristics and habits in line with Chinese program information table with program identification, and are classified according to the Chinese people's habit of watching TV program is displayed.
