The level of technology

From WO 01/33852 the known device and method for recording information on the recording medium, where the compressed digital video image recorded on the recording medium in accordance with the standard video encoding, for example, in MPEG2 format. The data stream includes video data and "push" interactive data (i.e. data that is delivered to users, regardless of requested whether they specified data or not), forming together a custom program with advanced capabilities, which provides the user with a video and interactive features or data, such as options with answers to questions or current stock quotes. The data stream is transmitted to the receiving device and includes one or more application information objects representing push interactive data. Prikladnoy the information objects may include objects of different types, including the file table, to provide the user with several interactive applications when rendering video. When receiving a data flow from it extract the individual information objects. Then these information objects retain together with the properties of objects and file table. Thus, push the interactive data is converted to the extracted interactive data, i.e. the application is under control of the user. Note that storing the data stream as a whole, that is, as he admitted, is associated with a number of disadvantages. For example, when the visualization is run the program at a randomly chosen point in time any interactive application will be available only after a pause associated with waiting until it is enabled (re-enabled) in the data stream. Therefore, the information objects retain separately as files that can be available to the user at any time. However, for storing information objects in the form of files requires a pre-defined file format and access system files, suitable for any application when the data flow should be included information file table.

Disclosure of invention

The aim of the invention is the creation of a system for recording and playback of user programs is rich containing encoded digital information in real-time and interactive applications, which can be saved in video and interactive applications contained in the data stream, using a universal format for storing, and which is compatible with pre-existing devices recording and playback operating in accordance with a predetermined recording format.

According to the first aspect of the invention a device for recording information on the recording medium includes: a recorder for recording marks representing the encoded digital image information in real time, in particular video, in accordance with a predetermined recording format; input block for receiving the data stream, forming a custom program with advanced capabilities, and data flow contains information in real time and applied information objects, at least one subset of the application data objects form data to provide the user with at least one interactive application in information visualization in real time; the medium of communication to highlight messages from the data stream, and the message contains application information objects; the parser to create custom control in the information and management tool for storing messages in the message file separately from the real-time information in the form of a message sequence for the program and for storing application control information in the information message file, and the application management information includes access information for accessing the messages in the message file.

According to the second aspect of the invention a device for reading information from the recording media to render a custom program with advanced features includes: means reader to read the labels representing the encoded digital image information in real time, in particular video, in accordance with a predetermined recording format; and a management tool to ensure the user at least one interactive application based on at least a subset of the application data objects with information visualization in real time by extracting the application control information from the message file, and by retrieving messages from the message file on the basis of information access, included in the application control information, and messages contain application information objects, and the message file is stored separately from the information in real time.

According to a third aspect of the invention, the recording medium carries information for the user education program with advanced capabilities, on which the label carrier zapisana track are encoded by the digital image information in real time, in particular video, in accordance with a predetermined recording format, the message file separately from the real-time information, and the file contains messages containing application information objects, with one subset of the application data objects form data to provide the user at least one interactive application with visualization of real-time information, and the information message file containing the application control information including access information for accessing the messages in the message file.

These measures give results, consisting in that the application of information objects stored in a separate file messages. Informational message file has the access information to retrieve the individual application information objects from the message file. Informational message file create by using information from the data stream provided for immediate visualization. The message file and the information file messages available directly to the visualization device for use in a delay of playback and when you need interactive features.

This gives the advantage consisting in the fact that is a system of storing and retrieving application data, which is not what isit from file information put the transmitter in the data stream. There is a possibility of placing a large number of different interactive applications, and random access to them by simply using the message file and the information file of the message.

The invention also is based on the following idea. The inventors have found that the parsing of the data stream and the selection of information objects for storing files for each interactive application requires that the receiver retrieves information from the data stream. Providing memory system messages, which sequentially stores the message and generates access information for quick navigation through the messages, based on the same information that is necessary for immediate playback. Therefore, the memory system based on the transmitted messages, less complex and more versatile than the memory system based on the application files WO 01/33852. In this system, the receiver configured to parse push data to provide separate information objects, which form the data flow program and storing the information objects in a storage device in the form of a set of files, and not as a sequence of messages.

In a variant of the device means syntaxic the who analysis compiled for inclusion in the informational message file for at least one of the following for a single message: the message number, moreover, the number of the message identifies the message in the message sequence; indicator message type; the starting location in the file of messages; message length; the number of consecutive messages. This gives the advantage that any message can be easily retrieved from the message file using the information message file.

In a variant of the device means messages are arranged to remove redundant information from the message, the selected block parsing. This gives the advantage consisting in the fact that a reduced amount of information to be remembered.

Additional preferred options recording device or reading the recording media and method according to the invention are presented in the claims.

The implementation of the invention

On figa shows the carrier 11 entries in the form of a disc having the track 9 and the Central hole 10. Track 9, which is a sequence of recorded (subject entry) marks representing the information has a spiral configuration of the coils, forming in fact a parallel track at the information level. The recording medium may be an optically readable disc, called an optical disk that has information level recordable type. Examples of a recordable disc are the CD-ROM, CD-R (write-once) and CD-ROM, CD-RW (rewritable), and a rewritable version of DVD, such as DVD+RW, as well as a rewritable optical disk of high density, use the s lasers, working in the blue region of the spectrum, which is called the disk the blue region of the spectrum (BD). Information is presented on the information level by recording optically detectable marks along the track, such as crystalline or amorphous marks in the material with a phase transition. Track 9 on the media, write-once characterized by the presence of pre-made embossed patterns of the tracks provided in the manufacture clean the recording media. The structure of the track is formed, for example, pre-marked track 14, which allows the head read/write track track while scan. The structure of the track contains information about the position, such as addresses, for indicating the location of items of information, usually called information blocks.

On fig.1b shows the cross section of the carrier 11 with a single entry at line b-b where the transparent substrate 15 provided with a layer 16 entries and the protective layer 17. The protective layer 17 may contain an additional layer of a substrate, such as on the DVD, where the record layer is on a substrate of 0.6 mm, and the additional substrate of 0.6 mm is connected with its rear side. Pre-marked track 14 can be implemented in the form of a recess or elevation of the substrate material 15, or in the form of deviations of the properties of the material environment from the second environment.

The carrier 11 recording is designed to carry information representing the encoded digital video image, type encoded in the standard MPEG2 video recorded in accordance with a predetermined recording format, such as DVD format. For more details about the DVD can be found by referring to the ECMA-267: 120 mm DVD-Read-Only Disc (1997) and related specifications for DVD videos. The recording format BD is described in System Description Blu-Ray Disc Rewritable Format, particularly in Part 3: Audio Visual Specifications, version 1.0, June 2002. Relevant aspects are described below with reference to Fig. 3 and 4. Translation and transport of multimedia data for home platform, hereinafter called the MHP, described in the document on standardization ETSI TS 101.812, while relevant aspects is described below with reference to the drawings.

Figure 2 shows a recording device and/or reading for recording information on the medium 11 account that is a media write-once or rewritable media type, such as CD-R or CD-RW, or DVD+RW or BD. The device is provided with a burner for scanning the track on the recording medium, and the tool includes a drive unit 21 for rotating the carrier 11 of the recording head 22, the positioning block 25 for coarse positioning of the head 22 in the radial direction on the track and the control block 20. The head 2 includes an optical system of a known type to create a beam 24 of the radiation, directed through the optical elements, focused on the spot 23 radiation on the track of the information layer of the recording medium. The beam 24 of the radiation generated by the radiation source, for example a laser diode. Head further comprises (not shown) of the focusing actuator for moving the focus of the beam 24 of the radiation along the optical axis of the specified beam and the actuator tracking for precise positioning of the spot 23 in a radial direction through the center of the track. Executive tracking mechanism may include a coil for radial movement of the optical element, or alternatively, may be set to change the angle of the reflecting element. During the recording of information is the management of radiation to generate optically detectable marks in the recording layer. Labels can be made in any optically readable form, e.g. in the form of areas with a reflection coefficient different from the environment, and it is provided at the recording materials such as a dye, an alloy or a material with a phase transition, or in the form of areas with a direction of magnetization different from the environment that is provided when recording on the magneto-optical material. During the reading of the radiation reflected by the information layer is detected by the detector of the conventional type, for example chetyrehkratnym diode in the head 22 to generate a signal read-out and additional signal detector, including error tracking error signal, the focus control these actuators tracking and focusing. The signal reading is processed by block 30, the processing of reading the usual type including a demodulator, deformatter and output unit, for extracting information. Thus, the extraction tool for reading information includes a drive unit 21, a cylinder 22, the positioning block 25 and block 30 processing read. The device may include block 36 visualization connected with the block 30 processing reading for information visualization in real time, for example on the display screen for rendering video.

The device contains a means of processing the records for processing the entered information with the aim of creating a recording signal to drive the head 22, and the tool includes an input block 27, the formatter 28 and a modulator 29. Unit 20 controls the recording and retrieval of information and can be configured to receive commands from a user or from a host computer. The control block 20 is connected through line 26 to control, such as the system bus, to the specified unit 27 is input to the formatter 28 and the modulator 29, block 30, the processing of reading the block 21 and drive unit 25 positioning. The control block 20 includes a control circuit such as a microprocessor, a program memory and control valve circuit to perform the procedures and functions according to the invention, as described below. The control block 20 may also be implemented as a finite state machine in logic circuits.

Unit 27 receives and processes input data stream containing at least one audio or video, for example transport stream of a digital broadcast network, such as MHP, for education custom program with advanced features. The data stream contains program information in real time and applied information objects transmitted in a carousel, as explained below with reference to Fig. 7 and 8. A subset of the application data objects, usually called a module, forms data to provide the user with at least one interactive application in information visualization in real time. The data stream of the selected program is transmitted to the formatter 28 for creating control data and formatting the data, as described below with reference to Fig.9. For computer applications, information can interact with the formatter 28 directly. The formatted data from the output of the formatter 28 is transmitted in block 29 of the modulation, which contains, for example, Kahn is capacity encoder, to create a modulated signal, which actuates the cylinder 22. In addition, block 29 modulation contains a synchronization tool for inclusion in a modulated signal timing sequences. Formatted information, the input unit 29 of the modulation contains address information and is recorded in the corresponding addressable location on the recording medium under the control of the control block 20 in accordance with a predetermined recording format. It should be noted that, in addition to the text made reference to the predefined recording format BD, as an example of the specified format. However, you can also use other, predetermined recording formats, such as DVD+RW.

The device has an application unit 32 for extracting application information objects and application control data under the control of the control block 20 of the files, as described below. The application is presented to the user along with real-time information retrieved through the block 30 are read.

Note that, as shown in figure 2, the device has functions of recording and playback. In an alternative embodiment, the reader only to play has the appropriate elements for extracting information from the recording media and contains scanning elements and pattern reading, but the e has unit 27 input the formatter 28 and a modulator 29.

Record transport streams, such as transport streams MPEG, defined in the system BD. In the system of the BD-RE set the modes to remember MPEG2 transport streams received from the digital broadcast. During the recording stream is analyzed, resulting in receive and memorize the characteristic data out of the main traffic flow. The main reason for storing these characteristic data out of the transport stream is to provide random access to start rendering at the selected point of view and to provide the ability to edit playlists. In the known system the BD characteristic data belong to the image data, and opportunities for individual applications such as MHP is not available.

Note that in systems of records based on the magnetic tape is recorded stream of data as a whole. For example, in the DV system (now used only for applications for portable video cameras developed specifications for recording MPEG2 transport streams on the DV tape. Such specification can be found in:

“Specifications of Consumer-Use Digital VCRs using 6.3 mm magnetic tape,

Part 7: DVB Specifications of Consumer-Use Digital VCR

Part 8: ATV Specifications of Consumer-Use Digital VCR”

by: HD Digital VCR Conference [Blue Book], December 1995.

For example, the system DVHS is designed for use with the aim of remembering (partially the CSOs) MPEG transport streams from digital broadcast programs. The MPEG TS is stored in the same view, taken from a broadcasting station (tape drive). System DVHS described in:

“D-VHS system standard” by Victor Company of Japan, July 2000.

Figure 3 shows the block diagram of the levels while recording BD. Inlet 40 has a transport stream at the output 45 are formatted data, is available for use. The user interface 45, and further processing the formatted data is not standardized. The transport stream can be delivered via digital interface or built-in tuner. The levels in the BD are described in different parts of the document “System Description Blu-Ray Disc Rewritable Format:

the physical layer 44 described in Part 1, which explains the physical characteristics of the record on the disk 11. In the interface between the physical layer and the file system level property has event space logical address;

File system level 43 described in Part 2. In the file system level, database FS displays the files from the application layer 42 in the space of logical addresses from the physical layer 44. In addition, at this level, given some distribution rules to ensure real-time;

the application layer is presented in Part 3, where you set the processing necessary for certain applications, such as remembering MPEG2 transport streams.

Figure 4 p the cauldron video recording according to the recording format BD. The data stream is input 46. In block 47 program selection is the choice of a particular program. The TS packets from other programs are removed. The resulting stream 48 is called "partial transport stream. Programs can also occur in the transmitter of a digital interface. The choice of programs is not required if the transport stream contains only one program. To maintain the correct temporal characteristics of each TS packet to each of the remaining TS packet is added to the time stamp. The time stamp represents the time of receipt of the TS packet. This way you can restore the correct timing of TS packets during playback. In the next block 50 stream packets source with a length of 192 bytes (the packet of the transport stream + time stamp) are Packed into blocks, and these blocks are combined in series to the video file stream. For the next record is created and saved a new file video stream. Flow 48 is also connected to the block 49 parsing video to parse the incoming stream TS and receiving characteristics of the program and transport stream, which are stored in the information ClipInfo file. The ClipInfo file also contains a mapping from the mosaic element presentation in the application at location in the file stream (so-called table data is aracteristics points (CPI)). By definition, the clip consists of a file stream + corresponding ClipInfo file. In the ClipInfo file there are several subdatasheets, namely:

ClipInfo (): the General terms of coding, etc.

SequenceInfo (): part of the stream that have the same temporary basis.

ProgramInfo (): part of the stream with the same information relating to the program

CPI (): entry Point in the thread

ClipMark (): the Location and appearance of the labels.

MakersPrivateData (): Data of a private nature for this streaming file.

Unit 49 parsing video also connected to the block 52 PlayList to create and memorize the PlayList file. The PlayList file consists of several subdatasheets, namely:

User-Appl-Info (): General information, which can be used for the user interface (UI)

PlyItems (): PlayList consists of several PlyItems.

PlayListMarks (): the Location and appearance of the labels.

MakersPrivateData (): Data of a private nature for this streaming file.

Figure 5 shows the structure of the application layer. Level 55 PlayList contains many files PlayList. The PlayList file contains several PlyItem. Each subtable PlyItem applies to the moment of performance start and end view of the clip through the ClipInfo file at the level of 56 videos. The location to start reading in the file ClipStream can be found using the ClipInfo file. The PlayList file may consist of subdatasheets PlyItem that C is at different clips. So you can edit without changing the AV content on the disk.

Figure 6 shows the directory structure for data messages MHP in the MPEG-TS. Method of packaging and data transfer MHP known from the MHP specification. Audiovisual (AV) content is transmitted in multiplex transmission of a transport stream (TS) of MPEG. Additional information is transmitted in a carousel 65, which is multiplexed in the multiplex transmission of MPEG-TS. The first transmission of the application must be terminated before this application can be activated. The application can be updated by assignment of a number for the new version. Important events are transmitted in a carousel. In digital videowoman (DVB-MHP) carousel objects used for data transmission MHP, the data carousel is used for application software environment for digital television (DASE) and digital broadcasting integrated services (ISDB). Differences between them are referring to the transfer and application. Carousel data are more simple. Transfer the data carousel and the carousel objects differ from each other. But for further explanation of this difference is not important as remembering performed independently of the transmission. Below this text is used to explain the carousel object MHP, but the same method can be used for data carousel.

In the top diagram shows the messages 66 for MHP, the so-called message BIOP (BIOP = Protocol Broadcast Inter ORB Protocol with ORB = request Broker objects). These messages have a header 67 and subtitle 68. In the MHP applications there are messages for events directory (Obj-1[Dir]), file events (Obj-1[File]), and flow and event flow (Obj-1[Stream]). These messages contain the data and the attributes of a single object. They are broadcast in the same module 69 (one module can contain multiple messages 66 BIOP). The BIOP message contains:

title 67 [version message length];

subtitle 68 message [information on the transported object, such as the type of object (file, stream, directory)];

the key object [unique identifier in module];

the body of the message [depends on the type of object].

During transmission modules are divided into blocks 70 download data (DDB), which have the same length, except the last DDB module. To each DDB attached to the header 71 DDB, and the header contains the module ID and the block number of the data in the module. Blocks DDB (with header) is transmitted in sections 72, as defined in standard MPEG2 described in IEC13818-1. Header is added 73 section. The header 73 section contains information on the transfer of the sections when the multiplex transmission of MPEG TS. Sections are transmitted in packets 74 TS. Each package 74 TS has a header 75 of the TS packet and, optionally, the header adaptation field of science is the motor and/or addition. The TS packets are multiplexed together with other TS packets of programs in the multiplex transmission. The header 75 of the TS packet contains information on the transfer of the TS packets in the multiplexed transmission of MPEG TS.

In the carousel of interest also sent some control messages BIOP. These messages are used to extract modules from MPEG-TS. In the carousel data existing descriptors in the table of service information (SI) is used to extract the modules from the data carousel.

On Fig shows the structure of groups for the carousel. Group 80 contains several modules 69. Information about the modules included in the Module-Info 82. Supergroup 81 contains several groups. Information about the groups included in the Group-Info 83. Thus, the carousel objects or data can contain many modules.

Figure 9 shows the processing flow of the data to highlight messages and information messages. In block 91 program selection, the TS packets of the selected program comes in the demultiplexer 92, while the other threads TS are removed, resulting in a partial stream TS. Then the demultiplexer 92 separates the MPEG TS packets from the programme (DVB) from packages MHP TS, resulting in the filing of a DVB data in block 93 video processing with the function to extract the file video stream, the video information file and PlayList file, as described above in connection sfig. The demultiplexer 92, in addition, takes the MHP data in block 94 messages to highlight messages from the data stream, and these messages contain application information objects, and in block 95 parser to create the application control information. In block parsing packages MHP parsed to collect relevant information in the descriptors SI. Means 20 of the control is arranged for storing messages in the message file, called the application file MHP (separate from the real-time information in the form of a message sequence for the program), and for storing application control information in the information file messages, call information file MHP. Applied management information includes access information for accessing the messages in the message file, as described in detail below. These functions are available in the formatter 28 and/or in the control block 20 as described in connection with figure 2.

In a variant of the block 94 messages redundant information packets, MHP is removed:

deletes information about the packet header TS;

removes the header information section;

removed header information DDB;

removed redundant messages. Messages are redundant when they are transmitted repeatedly. For example, if one message is the third in a module is updated, then the entire module receives a new version, while other messages can still stay unchanged. If there are messages, accessing other programs that are not memorized or information which is not available when playing with a lag, then these messages must be removed, or can be created alternate link, as described in WO01/33852. Other messages are stored in the file MHP-Appl.

Figure 10 shows the structure of the application layer when memorizing data MHP. In addition to the points described with reference to figure 5, memorized information file 101 messages, called MHPInfo(1). Additional files 102 messages, called message MHP, are stored in accordance with the file video stream.

Figure 11 shows the structure of the message file. The message file contains a sequence of messages 111. The first message 112, called the Message(1), is taken from the version of (1) module (1); the second message 113, called the Message(2), is taken from the version of (1) modules (3); message 114, called the Message(3), again taken from the version of (1) module (1). Thus, multiple messages together form a module for the application. All messages from all modules are numbered in the specified file and sequentially concatenated. The order in which they are remembered, it doesn't matter; you can use the ü receipt time. Of messages in the message file in the file MHP-Info is stored access information, for example the message number and the beginning and end of the active period (with reference to the time of submission).

On Fig shows an example of an information message file. In this file called MHP-Info contains a table of records. As part of the file MHP-Info may include:

General information

the name of the application

the required reference data,

the validity period of this application,

the corresponding file MHP-Appl,

the first message object to be read (optional);

Number of objects:

A table having for each entry:

the message number (object) file MHP-App

the message type (object)

the starting location in the file MHP-App [accurate to the byte],

message length (in bytes)

the start of the active period (the time of submission of the programme),

the end of the active period (the time of submission of the programme),

x the following message.

File MHP-Info provides random access to the program. In a variant reader file MHP-Info is read before starting the program. At any time (within the time) it is known that the message is active. Note that in the file MHP-Info may be more than one carousel.

On Fig shows the directory structure for the data is MHP. File 131 MHP-Appl and file 132 MHP-Info remember on BD so that the system version 1 can read the program without data MHP by providing a new subdirectory 130, for example, under the name MHPINFO. Pre-existing version 1.0 of the BD will ignore the contents of the directory MHPINFO. Version of the MHP will be able to recognize the directory MHPINFO. The files in the directory MHPINFO files are Group-4 (as defined in Part-2). They are kept outside the scope LB for collected files.

Although the invention has been mainly described with the consideration variants that use BD for storing application data fit similar options such as DVD+RW with predefined recording format. In addition, note that the version specified in the specified format can standardize a specific location for storing the file of messages and information messages file. Also as a storage medium has been described optical disk, but you can use other media, such as magneto-optical disk or magnetic tape.
