本发明涉及数字多媒体领域,特别是指一种在同一画面中显示多个频道信息的方法、系统、装置及^l顶盒。 The present invention relates to the field of digital multimedia, and particularly to a method of displaying a plurality of channel information, system, device, and ^ l-top boxes on the same screen.

背景技术 Background technique

在互|关网电^见(Internet Protocol Television or Interactive Personal Television, IPTV)和双向数字电视(Digital Television, DTV)中,有一种在同一画面中同时显示多个频道节目的电子节目指南(Electronic Program Guide, EPG)展示手段, 一般将其称为马赛克(Mosaic )。 In mutual | ^ see off electricity network (Internet Protocol Television or Interactive Personal Television, IPTV) and two-way digital TV (Digital Television, DTV), there is a program to display multiple channels electronic program guide (Electronic Program on the same screen Guide, EPG) display means, which is generally known as mosaic (mosaic). 马赛克为用户提供的业务体-睑是:将显示屏幕划分成多个区域,每个区域独立显示一个频道的节目,用户能够在这些区域中观看各频道的节目,通过遥控器选择某个频道对应的区域并点击后,全屏观看相应频道的节目。 Service provides users with mosaic body - eyelid is: The display screen is divided into a plurality of regions, each region independently displaying a program of a channel, the user can view a program of each channel in these regions, corresponding to a channel selected through the remote controller after the area and click, watch full-screen program corresponding channel. 与文字及图片组成的频道节目单相比, 马赛克能够实时展现各频道正在播放的节目情况,向用户提供更加直观和有吸引力的节目预告功能。 Channel lineup with text and picture composition compared to the mosaic program in real time to show the situation is being played on each channel to provide more intuitive and attractive promo functionality to the user.

马赛克的具体实现是:机顶盒同时接收各频道节目的媒体流,对各媒体流进行解码,将显示屏幕划分为多个区域,例如,NxM个区域,每个区域独立显示一个频道的节目,机顶盒将多个频道节目的々某体流的内容合并并同时显示在屏幕上,用户可以通过各区域的小画面观看各频道的节目,用户确定需要观看的节目后,通过遥控器选择该节目的频道对应的区域并点击,机顶盒收到用户输入的该命令后,停止接收该频道以外的其他媒体流,向用户全屏播放该用户所选择的频道的节目。 Mosaic specific implementation is: a set top box program of each channel simultaneously receiving media streams, each media stream is decoded, the display screen is divided into a plurality of regions, e.g., NXM regions, each region independently displaying a channel of a program, the set-top box incorporated in a plurality of fluid flow channels of 々 programs and simultaneously displayed on the screen, the user can view a program of each channel by the small picture of each region, the user needs to determine a program after viewing by remote control to select the program corresponding to the channel area and click on the set-top box receives the commands entered by the user, the other stop receiving media streams outside of the channel, full-screen playback of the user-selected program channel to the user.

现有实现马赛克的方案中,需要机顶盒同时接收多个频道的媒体流,将导致整体实现方案的成本过高,同时机顶盒的实现大大复杂化,下面详细描述原因。 Existing implementations mosaic scheme, the set top box need to receive media streams while a plurality of channels, will result in high overall cost of implementation, while achieving significantly complicate the set-top box, the reasons described in detail below.

在IPTV网络中,实现一个3 x 3的马赛克业务时,机顶盒需要在9个组播端口接收媒体流,并且机顶盒的解码芯片需要同时对收到的9路媒体流进行解码。 In IPTV system, to achieve a 3 X 3 mosaic service, set top boxes need the multicast ports 9 receive media streams, and the need to set-top box decoder chip 9 receiving the media stream decoding path. 如果一个频道需要占用1.2至2.5兆比特/秒(Mbps)的带宽,则一个3x3 的马赛克业务就需要占用的接入带宽为10.8至22.5 Mbps,使得在IPTV网络中实现马赛克业务时需要过多的传输资源。 If a channel needs to occupy 1.2 to 2.5 megabits / second (Mbps) bandwidth is a 3x3 mosaic service requires access bandwidth occupied 10.8 to 22.5 Mbps, so that the excessive time required to achieve a mosaic service in the IPTV network transmission resources. 另外,需要^l顶盒的解码芯片能够同时对多路媒体流进行解码,并且还需要机顶盒对显示屏幕进行区域分割、及对各媒体流的内容合并同时显示在屏幕上,这样,机顶盒实现的复杂度非常高, Further, the need ^ l-top box decoder chip capable of simultaneously multiplexing the media stream decoding, and also require the set top box to a display screen divided into areas, and the content were combined media streams simultaneously displayed on a screen, so that set-top box of complexity is very high,

这将导致机顶盒的成本急剧上升。 This will lead to a sharp rise in the cost of set-top boxes.

在DTV网络中,虽然无论是传输一路媒体流还是同时传输多路媒体流, 其传输带宽都是固定的,4吏得实现马赛克业务并不会额外占用传输资源,但是在DTV网络中实现马赛克业务同样需要机顶盒同时接收多路媒体流,仍然需要机顶盒的解码芯片同时对多路媒体流进行解码,并且还需要机顶盒对显示屏幕进行区域分割、及对各媒体流的内容合并同时显示在屏幕上,这样,机顶盒实现的复杂度仍然非常高,由此导致机顶盒的成本急剧上升。 In the DTV network, although either way the media stream transmission or simultaneous transmission of multiple media streams, its transmission bandwidth is fixed, four officials have to realize mosaic business and does not take up additional transmission resources, but to realize the mosaic in the DTV business network also requires the set top box to simultaneously receive multiple media streams, still we need to set-top box decoder chip simultaneously multiplexed media stream decoding, and also require the set top box to a display screen divided into areas, and the content were combined media streams simultaneously displayed on the screen, in this way, the complexity of the set-top box is still very high, resulting in a sharp rise in the cost of set-top boxes.
