Description

一种交互式网络电视中电子节目单导航方法及其系统 An interactive electronic program guide television network navigation method and system

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及一种电子节目单导航(Elect ronic Program Guide,EPG)方法及其系统,尤其涉及交互式网络电视(IPTV)系统中的电子节目单导航方法及其系统。 [0001] The present invention relates to an electronic program navigation (Elect ronic Program Guide, EPG) method and system, and particularly to Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) system, electronic program navigation method and system.

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] EPG服务器是IPTV系统的核心模块之一,以提供简单易用、快速、稳定、美观的交互界面为首要目标,为IPTV用户收看电视节目、享受多媒体节目点播以及开展信息服务提供了一个良好的导航机制。 [0002] EPG server is one of the core modules IPTV system to provide easy to use, fast, stable, attractive interface primary goal, watch TV for IPTV users to enjoy multimedia on-demand programming and information services provides a good navigation mechanism. 用户对IPTV整个系统的评价在很大程度上取决于EPG。 User evaluation of the entire IPTV system depends largely on the EPG.

[0003] 在IPTV运营中,搭建IPTV平台的运营商越来越要求IPTV平台能方便接入第三方零售服务提供商(Retail service provider, RSP)的能力,以便为用户引入更丰富的内容和服务,加强IPTV系统的核心竞争力。 [0003] In the IPTV operations, build a platform for IPTV IPTV platform operators are increasingly demanding the ability to easily access third-party retail service provider (Retail service provider, RSP) in order for the user to introduce richer content and services strengthen the core competitiveness of the IPTV system. 参与IPTV平台的这些RSP作为服务提供商为IPTV弓丨入更多的内容和服务,同时还设计和维护自己的EPG界面来展示和运营他们提供的内容。 These RSP involved IPTV platform as a service provider for IPTV bow Shu into more content and services, as well as design and maintain their own interface to show the EPG operators and content they provide.

[0004] 而现有实现IPTV中EPG的基本功能和可选功能的方式是:将所有的EPG内容和用户界面都存储在专用的EPG服务器中;EPG服务器传送这些由HTML格式表示的信息至用户IP机顶盒;用户界面的表示在客户端完成。 [0004] conventional manner and achieve the EPG IPTV basic and optional features are: all of the EPG content and user interface are stored in a dedicated EPG server; EPG server transmits the information represented by the user to the HTML format IP STB; indicating completion of the user interface on the client.

[0005] 这种传统的IPTV运营商设计统一EPG展示所有内容的模式难以支持这种多RSP 设计和维护EPG界面的需求。 [0005] This traditional IPTV operators to design a unified EPG display mode can not support all the content of this multi-RSP design and maintenance requirements EPG interface. 另由于各RSP都有自己的特色内容和服务,也有自己的用户群,所以也急需要提供一种让用户选择RSP,并查看RSP内容和服务的方法。 In addition, because each has its own characteristics RSP content and services, also have their own user base, it is also an urgent need to provide a way for the user to select RSP, RSP and view content and services approach.
