Description

  • Territory of invention
  • The The present invention relates generally to generation and broadcasting of video sequences by television stations and in particular relates to a computerized Compilation of a plurality of video single sequences existing video blocks for broadcasting or transmission through a TV station, according to one particularly preferred aspect of the present invention for computerized Compilation of TV commercials consisting of a plurality of commercials.
  • background the invention
  • A appropriate compilation of broadcast content is for public and private television channels of great economic importance, since only by suitable on the respective target groups compiled Send content can achieve high viewer ratings, which is the budget of a television station. With the further development of Computer Network and Internet technologies will be a significant technological effort to make a suitable compilation of broadcast content. by virtue of the big Data sets stored in the context of video sequences, must be processed and managed, are great technological Challenges. Many solutions concentrate on the generation of user-specific content. Many of these Concern solutions but not the same uniformity of all television viewers Content but of specially tailored to the respective audience Programs or content.
  • US 2004/007 3 924 A1 discloses a method for the production of special to the needs of individuals TV viewers adapted program guides (TV guides). TV viewers can over log in to the server of a TV station and there create a user profile based on individual preferences. Based on This information becomes the content selection at the broadcast of television programs for controlled by the respective television viewer. The broadcasts can be user-specific be broadcast, which is a high technical effort, in particular a suitable infrastructure, preferably with cabling of the individual Households, requires.
  • US 2004/0163 101 A1 discloses a method in which different Commercials can be sent to different viewers to to enable the targeted broadcasting of commercials. For this purpose, the viewing habits of television viewers are tracked, and though by surveillance the interactions of the television viewer, which has an impact on has the compilation of the TV commercials. As an example, it is disclosed that a television viewer prefers a special Western, which then appropriately tailored to this viewing habits promotional mailings in the commercial breaks of the television program entails. WO 01/47156 A2 discloses further details of monitoring viewing habits from television viewers. In particular, a hardware is disclosed for monitoring the viewing habits.
  • US 2003/0158872 A1 discloses a method and system for testing Content before its dissemination. A network connects a central server with a content provider, a service provider, a Producer of content and a retransmission unit. The content are stored in electronic form on the server. Further a kind of application is created which briefly describes the content and possible receiver of content. This form will be in electronic form signed by the content supplier. The contents become common with the forms sent to recipients, which evaluate the content and provide evaluative feedback data that stored or managed together with the content. This System should be primary the creation of programs in large corporate networks, for example TV channels, facilitate and ensure that evaluation results systematically shared with those stored on a central server Content is stored, handled and managed. This system does not, however, concern the composition of content, in particular not in automati sierter way, to a program to be broadcast, in particular also not the automatic compilation of advertising blocks from several TV commercials.
  • Summary the invention
  • task It is the object of the present invention to provide a target group Compilation of video sequences, in particular of advertising blocks, too facilitate. Further aspects of the present invention relate especially the reduction of software and hardware requirements in such a system environment.
  • According to the present invention, there is provided a method of generating a collection of video sequences by selecting from a plurality of video individual sequences over a network. The video sequences are, in particular, video sequences relating to one and the same content, that is to say in Thematically completed video sequences with a clearly defined beginning and end. This also applies to the individual video sequences to be selected, which are in particular thematically self-contained video clips, very particularly preferably TV commercials. The inventive method is performed in a network environment that includes a server that can be selectively connected to a video delivery client, a video evaluation client, and a video evaluation client. For connection or interconnection, according to the invention, customary network technologies, in particular Internet connections, in which a remote client logs into a server via the Internet or another comparable network, are used. According to the invention, the network is thus preferably connected to the server by remote clients. Of course, however, at least parts of the hardware environment can also be arranged in spatial proximity to one another, for example directly in television broadcasters.
  • at the method according to the invention On the video delivery client, a plurality of individual video sequences are created provided, in particular suitably produced and further processed, for subsequent transmission to the central server. After suitable preparation, the Video individual sequences are then stored on the central server. The video individual sequences are preferred as immutable Handles units that are not changed on the central server, especially not thematically, or by cutting into another Be reworked video single sequence. This should be done according to a another embodiment but not a minor one shorten or lengths the video individual sequences concern, for example, the targeted Adaptation to free transmission blocks. The video single sequences can thus according to the invention of several provided by different video delivery clients and stored on the server, for example, from different Producers are produced and supplied. It remains useful while the assignment of the video individual sequences to the respective Producers received.
  • The A plurality of video individual sequences are then passed through the video rating client evaluated by a majority of test persons, random or based on appropriate criteria such as age, sex, personal Preferences, hobbies, income and the like. For evaluation, the respective test persons assign at least one Evaluation attribute for every video single sequence. The rating attributes are each one Video single sequence clearly assigned, so that a systematic Evaluation of the application results of the majority of test persons guaranteed is. For evaluation, a test person logs into the server via the network a, looks at the respective video individual sequences and rates these according to predetermined criteria, as explained in more detail below. there can be provided that each subject a predetermined list of video individual sequences, by full or Temporarily viewing the video individual sequences. According to others embodiments the subject can also select video single sequences to to rate these. This selection may be due to random criteria done or menu driven be. For example, could the test subject menu contents presented in graphical or textual form and a selection the video individual sequences through the given menu selection is controlled. Particularly preferred is each test person the same menu content presented so that no different influence on the subjects he follows.
  • Consequently In the valuation valuation attributes are generated, which clearly a respective single video sequence and a respective subject assigned. While the review meeting or at the end of each review session the rating attributes are stored on the server so that these are assigned to the video individual sequences. In addition can while according to another embodiments also receive the assignment to the respective evaluating subject stay.
  • at the method according to the invention is final the creation of the compilation of video sequences by selection of video single sequences from the plurality of video single sequences by a video exploitation client or video usage client that captures the video individual sequences based on the rating attributes stored on the server selects and for the broadcast prepared by a TV station. The selection can be controlled by certain evaluation attributes, so that is controlled by the respective evaluation attributes the same group of video single sequences different compilations of video sequences can be created, which then, for example can be addressed to different target groups. For example, different evaluation attributes different weighting attributes assign what influences the composition of the video sequences.
  • In this way, an efficient and target-group-specific compilation of video sequences is made possible according to the invention. The inventive reduction of the rating to a few evaluation attributes allows a simple and rapid evaluation of the different evaluation results on the central server or a connected client, so that storage space and computing capacity as well as bandwidth can be saved. At the same time, a subjective compilation of video sequences falsifying the target group direction is prevented on the basis of subjective evaluation criteria, which offers considerable added value. Finally, different evaluations of the evaluation attributes with the associated video sequences can also be used to create different compilations for which purpose a different weighting is assigned to the evaluation attributes.
  • According to one another embodiment the video individual sequences by means of video streaming and upload stored the central server. This compression techniques for Compressing video sequences are used, for example JPEG, MPEG or the like. The video individual sequences can in particular also stored in compressed form on the server. According to one another embodiment can be used to upload the video single sequences to the server Authentication may be required while watching the video single sequences to disposal Identify attendees on the video delivery client got to. An upload of the video single sequences then takes place only after successful authentication of the participant.
  • According to one another embodiment the video individual sequences are assigned video sequence attributes, for example, the topic, the deployment client (the producer), the length, the format, the typical target audience, costs and others for evaluation Display relevant data for video sequences.
  • According to one another embodiment the majority of video single sequences unlocked so that different Groups of subjects to evaluate for different groups to access video single sequences. In other words, certain Test persons are deprived of certain video sequences not related to subject attributes, such as age, gender, Education level and the like, fit. The system logs so that this information will be used for subsequent generation of the Compilation of video sequences is accessible.
  • According to one another embodiment the test persons for evaluation on a video evaluation client Assessment means provided so that the subjects the evaluation attributes by pressing the actuating means can generate. For this purpose can For example, buttons, mouse clicks, radio buttons, slider or the like serve, which is realized in the form of hardware or on a screen, especially on a touch-sensitive Screen, can be displayed.
  • According to one another embodiment the evaluation attributes by real-time response (RTR) and / or scaled survey of the Generated test persons. In RTR techniques, the subjects rate the video sequences in real time, so this has the offered Question and / or statement catalog (items) without further reflection answer or evaluate, so the risk of different questions or statements that is otherwise the evaluation result distort could. In the scaled survey must the test persons, for example, an electronically presented Answer questionnaire, with different questions different Weightings can be assigned the evaluation attributes are then evaluated by evaluating the answers given, possibly taking into account the assigned weightings are generated, preferably automatically.
  • According to one another embodiment the subjects are assigned test person attributes, such as Age, gender, family status, occupation, level of education, income, Hobbies, interests and / or preferred category of video sequences. In this embodiment may be the generation of the evaluation attributes by the subject attributes For example, another weighting may be used or generated.

  • Full Description of a preferred embodiment
  • The system and method described below is intended to produce a collection of video sequences by selecting video single sequences. The video individual sequences are self-contained in terms of their content, for example, come from the same author or producer, dedicate themselves to the same content, treat the same topic and differ in this respect from other video single sequences. By selecting video individual sequences according to the invention, a targeted compilation of video sequences is thus to be provided, which is to be created specifically for specific target groups, tailored to the needs, viewing habits, etc. of the television viewers.
  • system environment
  • The 1 schematically shows an exemplary system environment in which a central web server 1 via a data connection 11 with a video clip deployment client 10 , via a data connection 21 with a video clip activation client 20 , via a data connection 31 with a video clip rating client 30 and via a data connection 32 with a video clip evaluation client 40 connected is. The web server 1 can for example be realized as an Apache web server, which is protected by a firewall against attacks and permanently mirrored for backup by means of RAID1 backup. The clients 10 . 20 . 30 . 40 can be through browser-based frontends or the like on the web server 1 log in. Internet protocols are thus preferably used for the interaction and the data connections are realized via the Internet. Other examples of networks represent a client accessing the web server via a WAN, a LAN, a wireless network (eg, cellular network), or a classic telephone network.
  • Web Server
  • According to the 2 includes the web server 1 an interface 100 for data exchange via the data connections 11 . 21 . 31 . 41 , A central processor 101 (CPU) controls the on the web server 1 running processes and database structures 3 - 7 , In particular, the CPU controls and manages 101 access to the database 3 for activation, to the database 4 for evaluation and to the database 5 to evaluate the video clips as well as to the database 6 with information about the subjects and the database 7 on which all video sequences are stored. The video sequences may, in particular, be commercials which, according to the invention, are to be compiled computer-assisted to form commercials comprising advertising spots for broadcasting by TV transmitters or the like. According to the 2 is also a process 103 for authentication and a process 102 intended for signaling.
  • According to the 1 The system environment executes processes for providing video clips, activating video clips, evaluating video clips, and evaluating video clips, which processes can be performed individually or interlockingly. These processes will be described below on the basis of 3 to 6 be treated separately for reasons of simplification.
  • Video clip deployment
  • According to the 3 A provider of video clips, such as a producer or dealer, especially commercials, logs on the client 10 via a data connection 11 to the central web server 1 on (step S10). For the purposes of the present application, http scripts are preferably used for these and also all other data connections. When logging in, personal access data can be requested. Furthermore, an authentication of the user can take place. Then, a home page is displayed (S11). The user is guided by a suitable menu selection. According to the 3 new video clips can be created or already stored video clips can be managed. For creating video clips, the process goes to step S12, which first triggers data input (S13). In step S13, any information used for the characterization, activation, evaluation and evaluation of the video clips can be entered, for example title, short description, length, producer, subject, goods or services to be advertised etc. The data entry can be made via a keyboard via a mouse with assigned menu selection or in any other way. If the user wants to set several video clips in the system, a selection of suitable video clips (S14) will be made on the client side, which will then be available on the web server 1 be uploaded. The usual video streaming techniques can be used. To further reduce the required bandwidth, compression techniques may additionally be used, for example JPEG, MPEG or the like. The uploaded video clips are then stored in step S15, in the video clip database 7 of the web server 1 , This process is repeated until all video clips to be uploaded are uploaded to the web server 1 are stored. For the management of existing data records is the step S17, in which existing records can be deleted or changed. For example, as discussed above, the video clip relevant information may be arbitrarily changed, or may be one that has already been filed and stored in the database 7 saved video clip will be replaced by an updated video clip. To manage the video clips, the user can also use them on the client 10 consider. After successful completion of a session, the user logs out of the web server 1 off (S16).
  • Activation / editorial exam the video clips
  • After uploading the video clips, the signaling module signals 102 (see. 2 ) of the Web servers 1 these changes in the video clip database 7 For example, by sending an email, SMS or similar message. Another operator, for example an editor, logs on to the client 20 on the web server 1 one. For login, the entry of personal access data may be required or an authentication may be made (S20). Subsequently, a home page is set up (S21). The user can then see the new in the database 7 Manage stored video clips, create, unlock, which of course also applies to the previously stored video clips (S22). For this purpose, the user has access rights to the video clip database 7 , the evaluation database 5 and the subject database 6 , The release of the newly deposited video clips can be done on the basis of predetermined criteria, such as content, category, length, producer or supplier, price or the like. In step S22, the user can also prevent test persons from accessing the newly deposited video clips. According to another embodiment, the activation of the new on the web server 1 stored video clips automatically. In the latter embodiment, the step of enabling, as described above, may also be omitted.
  • rating of video clips
  • To evaluate the video clips, a test person logs on the client 30 on the web server 1 on (step S30). For logging in, personal access data can be requested and / or the test person can be authenticated. Then, a home page is built up (S31). By suitable menu selection, the subject is guided through the further process. In step S32, the playback of a video clip is started. The subject can view the video clip on the client 30 consider. The transmission of the video data is preferably via video streaming. In this case, compression techniques, such as JPEG, MPEG or the like can be used. The playback of a video clip is aborted in step S33. Until this time, the video clip can be played completely, according to further embodiments, the playback of a video clip can also be canceled at any time, for example by a command of the subject. Subsequently, in step S34, the evaluation of the viewed video clip by the subject. The subject assigns rating attributes, as detailed below, which remain uniquely associated with the video clip in the further process. The rating attributes are in the rating database 4 of the web server 1 stored. The subject may be required to view all the video clips offered on the home page. According to further embodiments, the subject may also select individual video clips for viewing according to any criteria.
  • During a session, the subject is asked to view the video clips provided for selection. The subjective rating of the subject is recorded and stored in the rating database. For evaluation, a real-time response (RTR) according to step S36 and / or a scaled questioning of the subject after the reception of the video clip can also be used. To assess the test person assessment means can be presented, such as checkboxes, radio buttons, scales, menus or the like. All user actions are recorded on the server side and in the database 4 saved. A tracking system prevents multiple evaluations of the same video clip by the same subject.
  • evaluation
  • A user, for example a marketing company or the editors of a TV station, logs on to the client 40 on the web server 1 on (step S40), preferably by entering personal access data and / or authentication. Subsequently, a home page is set up (S41) and the user is guided through a menu. For those in the video clip database 7 stored video clips is taken into account in the evaluation process according to the 5 obtained evaluation attributes created (step S42). This evaluation is carried out by means of predetermined criteria on which the user can influence, for example by entering preferred attributes, as explained below.
