Description

电子节目指南EPG的显示方法及装置、机顶盒 Electronic Program Guide EPG display method and device, set-top boxes

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及通信领域,具体而言,涉及一种电子节目指南(Electronic programguide,简称为EPG)的显示方法及装置、机顶盒。 [0001] The present invention relates to communication field, specifically, relates to an electronic program guide (Electronic programguide, referred to as EPG) displaying method and apparatus, a set top box.

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] EPG又名电子节目单,通常伴随数字电视信号或数字广播信号传送。 [0002] EPG known as Electronic Program, usually accompanied by a digital television signal or a digital broadcast transmission signal. 主要作用是用户利用EPG提供的菜单,可以选择自己喜欢的组播频道;订购自己喜欢的节目。 The main role is to provide the user using the EPG menu, you can choose your favorite multicast channel; ordering their favorite programs. 还可以查看节目的附加信息,例如对节目内容介绍、演员及导演的介绍等。 You can also view additional program information, such as program content introduction, actor and director of introduction. 同时利用家长控制功能,可以控制孩子的观看权限。 While taking advantage of parental controls, you can control their children's viewing rights. EPG已成为数字电视的重要标志,是观众进入数字电视和交互式网络电视(Internet Protocol Televis1n,简称为IPTV)的门户。 EPG has become an important symbol of digital television, the audience into the digital television and interactive network TV (Internet Protocol Televis1n, referred to as IPTV) portals.

[0003] 到目前为止,数字电视只有两种传输模式,一种是基于广播方式的传播,一种是基于互联网协议(Internet Protocol,简称为IP)的协议模式;就是我们通常说的数字视频广播(Digital Video Broadcast,DVB模式和IPTV模式,两个模式各有优缺点。DVB最大的优点就是高码率,共享较大带宽,是目前主要推广的模式。但DVB是一点对多点的广播方式,用户只是它的一个对象,自己无法控制内容。0TT(0ver The Top)TV通过公共互联网向联网设备(电视、PC、移动终端)传输IP视频和互联网应用融合的服务。IPTV属于典型的OTT (Over The Top)系统业务。IPTV独享带宽,最大的优势就是点对点,非常自由的与用户互动。 [0003] So far, digital TV has only two transmission modes, one is based on the propagation of the broadcast, one is based on the Internet Protocol (Internet Protocol, abbreviated as IP) protocol mode; that is, we usually say that the digital video broadcasting (Digital Video broadcast, DVB and IPTV mode mode, two modes have advantages and disadvantages .DVB biggest advantage is the high rate, a larger share of bandwidth, is the main model for replication, but DVB is a multipoint broadcasting the user is just one of its objects, they can not control the content .0TT (0ver the Top) TV transmission of IP video and Internet application integration services to OTT .IPTV typical of networked devices (TV, PC, mobile terminals) over the public Internet ( Over the Top) systems business .IPTV exclusive bandwidth, the biggest advantage is the point, very free to interact with the user.

[0004] 这两种模式联合起来,DVB广播的高码流弥补IP的低码流,IP的点对点取代广播的一点对多点,变成双模电视,既能够接收广播信号,又能够接收IP协议的流媒体信号。 [0004] The two modes together, DVB broadcast stream to compensate for the high-low IP stream, IP point to point-to-multipoint broadcasting a substituent, becomes dual mode television, both capable of receiving a broadcast signal, but also to receive IP streaming protocol signal. 这样就可以在两个网络上同时享受音频和视频的服务。 So that you can enjoy audio and video service on both networks. 这就是双模机顶盒的基本模式。 This is the basic mode dual-mode set-top box.

[0005] 现有技术下双模机顶盒的DVB模式和OTT模式是独立运行的,当用户观看DVB直播节目与OTT电视直播、电视剧首播或视频点播(Video on Demand,简称为V0D)点播,必须手动进行模式的切换。 [0005] DVB mode and dual-mode mode OTT set-top box is a state of the art operate independently, when the user views a live DVB and OTT live television program, broadcast TV or video on demand (Video on Demand, referred to as V0D) on demand, you must manually switching mode. 与用户紧密交互的EPG电子节目单也采用不同的模板进行显示,显示方式和风格也不尽相同。 In close interaction with the user EPG Electronic Program Guide also use different templates for display, and display styles are not the same. 目前各运行商、机顶盒厂商的EPG,只针对某一个网络或一种机顶盒,缺乏广泛的适用性,在实际应用中有如下问题:EPG内容信息缺乏统一的数据格式,各台、网之间交换EPG时具有很大的复杂性;兼容性差,每个数字电视平台都必须重复设计和开发EPG系统。 At present the operators, set-top box manufacturers EPG, only for one network or one set-top box, the lack of broad applicability, there is a problem in practical application: EPG content information lack of uniform data format exchange between the various units, net EPG time of great complexity; poor compatibility, each digital TV platform must be repeated EPG system design and development.

[0006] 针对相关技术中,EPG只能针对一种网络或者一个机顶盒的显示方式导致的机顶盒适用性差的问题,尚未提出有效的解决方案。 [0006] set-top box for the problem of poor applicability of the related art, EPG only for the kind of network or display a set-top box caused no effective solutions.
