The technical FIELD

Embodiments of the present invention mainly relate to communication networks. More specifically, embodiments of the invention are designed to provide initialization of the terminal in a communication network.

The LEVEL of TECHNOLOGY

Typically, an electronic service guide (ESG Electronic Service Guide) provides an opportunity to inform the terminal about what services are available to end users, and how they can be accessed. The ESG fragments are independently existing elements of the ESG. Usually the ESG fragments include XML documents, but now they can cover a vast array of items, such as, for example, the description of the SDP (session description Protocol), text file or image. The ESG fragments describe one or more aspects of the services or broadcast program that is currently available (or in the future). Such aspects may include, for example, open a text description, schedule, availability in the geographic area, price, method of acquisition, genre, and additional information such as images or preview videos. Audio, video and other types of data, containing fragments of the ESG, may lane shall be given to the various types of networks according to many different protocols. For example, data may be transmitted through a set of networks, usually called "Internet", with the help of the Internet Suite of protocols, such as Internet Protocol (IP) and Protocol user datagram (UDP). Often the information transmitted across the Internet, is intended for an individual user. However, it can be addressed to a group of users that is usually called the group broadcast. Case when information is designed for all users, called the broadcast. Data ESG can be transmitted through a variety of digital wireless networks, including through digital networks, broadband, bi-directional network and/or network broadcast group.

Initialization of the terminal may provide the control parameters in the system broadcast or multicast, as well as the distribution parameters or objects on the terminals in the network. Currently there is no effective system or method for efficient execution of the initialization terminal in a communication network.

For this reason, there is a need for a method and system for initializing a terminal in a communication network.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

In the following description of various embodiments of the invention are references to the attached drawings, which are part of it and are in the form of illustrations showing various embodiments of the present invention. You must understand that can be used in other embodiments of the invention, and may be made of structural and functional changes without deviating from the scope and nature of the invention.

Features of the invention can be used in a wide range of networks and communication protocols. Figure 1 shows an example wireless system 110 connection, which can be used in systems and methods that correspond to the invention. One or more with tevah mobile devices 112, such as a personal digital assistant (PDA), cellular telephone, mobile terminal, personal video recorder, portable TV, personal computer, digital camera, recording digital video camera, portable audio device, portable radio, or a combination of these devices, connected to the provider 112 services for the broadcast network 114 and/or the cellular network 116. The mobile terminal/device 112 may include a device receiving a digital broadband broadcast. Provider 122 may be connected to multiple service providers that can provide your current program content, information or description of services to mobile device 112. Some service providers may include providers of television and/or digital television service providers AM/FM radio, service providers SMS/MMS, providers of Internet content or access to the Internet, but not only them.

One way broadcast data via a data network using IP (IPDC). IPDC is a combination of digital broadcast and Internet Protocol. In such a broadcast network based on IP Protocol, one or more service providers may provide different types of IP services, including online Newspapers, radio and television. These IP services are arranged in one or more of adiabatical in the form of audio, video and/or other data types.

To determine the time and place of appearance of these threads users access electronic service guides (ESG). One of the types of DVB is a digital TV to handheld devices (DVB-H) is a recently developed technology that increases the opportunities and services available for small portable devices such as mobile phones. DVB-H is designed for data transfer to portable devices, battery powered, with a speed of 10 Mbit/s

Transport streams DVB take the user to compressed audio, video and other data through a third-party delivery networks. Standards Expert group on cinematography (MPEG) is a technology whereby encoded in one video, audio and other data is summarized with other programs in the transport streams (TS). The transport stream is packetized stream of fixed-length data packet, including the header. Individual program elements, audio and video are transferred in packets, each of which has a unique packet identifier (PID). In order for the receiving device can detect various elements of a particular program in a transport stream, is a special program information (PSI)included in the transport stream. SIP the mo of this in the transport stream may be included additional service information (SI), representing a set of tables, embedded in a special part of the MPEG syntax. This allows the receiving device to properly handle the data contained in the transport stream.

However, the features of the present invention can be also applied to other traditional digital systems wide mobile digital broadcasting, such as, for example, T-DAB, T/S-DMB, ISDB-T, ATSC, MediaFLO, as well as unconventional, such as 3 GPP MBMS and 3GPP2BCMCS.

The broadcast network 114 may include a broadcast IPDC over DVB-H. Through the transmitter 118 broadcast network 114 may broadcast service, such as digital or analog television signal, and the auxiliary content related to the service. The broadcast network may also include radio, television or network wide broadcast IPDC. The broadcast network 114 may also transmit the auxiliary content may include television signal, audio and/or video streams, data streams, video files, audio files, software files and/or video games. When sending IPDC services provider 122 services may transfer the current program content to the user device 112 via the broadcast network 114, and additional information, such as user rights and access to the current program content via sotovoye 116 or by both networks.

Mobile device 112 may communicate with the provider 122 services over the cellular network 116. The network 116 may include a wireless network and the transmitter 120 to the base station. The cellular network may include a cellular data network 2nd/3rd generation global system for mobile communications (GSM), universal mobile telecommunications network (UMTS) or other wireless communication network, such as WLAN.

In one aspect of the invention, the mobile device 112 may include a wireless interface configured to transmit and/or receive digital wireless communication in a cellular network 116. Information received from the mobile device 112 over a wireless network 116 or broadcast network 114 may include information selected by the user (for example, interactive transmission), applications, services, electronic images, audio, video, and/or messages WTAI (wireless telephony). As part of the cellular network 166, one or more base stations (not depicted) can support digital communication with the receiving device 112, while the receiving device is located in the administrative domain of the cellular network 116.

As shown in figure 2, the mobile device 112 may include processor 128 connected to user interface 130, memory 134 and/or other storage device ecran 136. The mobile device may also have a battery 150, a speaker 152 and antenna 154. Part of the user interface 130 may include a keyboard, touch screen, voice interface, four arrow keys, joystick, control glove, mouse, trackball, or other similar device.

Executing the computer instructions, data used by the processor 128, and other components of the mobile device 112 may be stored in computer-readable memory 134. The memory may be implemented as any combination of modules of constant or random access memory devices, optionally including volatile and non-volatile memory. Software 140 may be stored in memory 134 and/or the storage device and provides the processor 128 instructions, allowing the mobile device 112 to perform various functions. Alternatively, some or all of the instructions executed by the computer, mobile device 112 may be implemented in hardware or firmware (not shown).

Mobile device 112 may be configured to receive through a special receiver DVB 141, decode and process digital broadband broadcasting, based on, for example, the standard for digital television broadcasting (DVB), this is AK DVB-H, DVB-T or DVB-MHP.

The mobile device may also be equipped with receivers, digital broadband broadcast other types. In addition, the receiving device 112 may also be configured to receive, decode and process transmissions through the receiver 142 FM/AM radio, transceiver 143 WLAN transceiver 144 telecommunications. In one feature of the invention, the mobile device 112 may receive messages in the form of a data stream in the radio (RDS).

In the example DVB-one DVB transmission speeds of 10 Mbps can contain 200 channels of gear with a bit rate of 50 kbit/s or 50 TV channels with a bit rate of 200 kbit/s Mobile device 112 may be configured to receive, decode and process transmissions based on standard digital TV to handheld devices (DVB-H) or other DVB standards, such as DVB-MHP, satellite DVB (DVB-S), terrestrial DVB (DVB-T) or cable DVB (DVB-C). In a similar way as an alternative for delivering content and information about the availability of additional services can be used other formats of digital transmission, such as ATSC (Committee systems perspective TV), NTSC (national television system Committee), ISDB-T (terrestrial digital broadcasting integrated services), DAB (digital audioimage), DMB (digits is the first multimedia broadcasting), FLO (communication repeaters) or DIRECTV. In addition, digital transmission can be quantized in time, as in DVB-h technology. Quantization of time can reduce the average energy consumption of the mobile terminal and to provide a smooth and seamless transfer. The quantization of time represents the sending data in packets using higher instantaneous bit rate compared to the bit rate needed to transmit the data using the traditional mechanism streaming. In this case, the mobile device 112 may have one or more buffer storage device for storing the decoded quantized time gear before playing. To reduce power consumption power receiver between packets can be disabled.

In one embodiment of the invention, the ESG fragments may be delivered to the terminal user of the service using one or more data streams or channels. In this example, the number of channels (such as IP packet streams) can be used to deliver information ESG to the terminal client.

For example, in the fragment of the ESG to the terminal consumer services can be sent reminders about upcoming events, provided by the service provider, the change in current events, provided provider the services, or updated or current information for a user or group of users.

The ESG fragments may be delivered in the transport object that can transfer information ESG in the container. Thus, the ESG fragments may be placed in a container that can be delivered in its own transport facility. Moreover, the container may contain a header and the payload of the container, where, for example, the container header can give information about the location of each transport object in the container. In one example, the transport object can contain one container or series of containers, each of which contains at least one ESG fragment. Figure 3 shows a diagram of an example of a transport object corresponding to at least one aspect of the present invention. As shown in the example in figure 3, the transport object 300 may include a container that can include the header 310 of the container and the payload 320 of the container. In one example, the header 310 of the container and payload 320 of the container are combined in one container 305, which can be combined into a single transport object 300 such that the header 310 of the container is not required to recombine with information about the location of each container in different transport streams. As an alternative what about the transport options object 300 may contain a number of containers, and the container may contain a number of fragments of the ESG 340. The container header 310 may include information associated with the corresponding ESG fragment, such as, for example, header information 310 of the container and/or the payload 320 of the container.

In the example shown in figure 3, a fragment of the ESG 340 is contained in the payload 320 of the container. The header 310 of the container may contain descriptors for the identification and description of the ESG fragments in the corresponding payload 320 of the container. Thus can be defined such characteristics of the ESG fragment as the position of the ESG fragment in the transport object 300, or the length of each of the included fragment of the ESG 340, but these examples are not limitations. For example, in one embodiment of the invention field indicates where in the payload 320 of the container starts a separate fragment of the ESG, providing, for example, the correction, the start and end points, or the like. In other embodiments, the implementation of separate fragments of the ESG 340 can be associated metadata 350 located near or inside a header 310, descriptors, the ESG fragment 340 or their combinations.

In accordance with a variant embodiment of the invention, the Association of the envelope metadata 3GPP with the ESG fragment 340 may serve as a substitute for or eliminate the need is the use of additional metadata, located in the header 310 and associated with a separate ESG fragment.

Figure 4 shows an example of passing a set of individual transport projects. As shown in figure 4, the transport objects (THAT) of the present invention can be transmitted, for example, in the sessions FLUTE (file delivery unidirectional transmission) or only in the session ALC (asynchronous layered coding). In the example in figure 4 the data on root canal ESG, such as IP address, port number, and the identifier of the transport session (TSI), declared in table notification of IP/MAC table (INT), which can be transmitted, for example, in stream SI/PSI in DVB-H as one of the tables system information DVB-H. Session FLUTE root canal ESG includes a table file delivery (FDT) in the framework of the session and one or more transport objects. These transport objects that can be delivered by a circular ads that contain map match different parts of the ESG and settings access the various ways ESG, in which the ESG data is transmitted. Reference ESG may differ from each other. For example, ESG can be in different languages, have different type or encoding.

Examples of access parameters are, for example, IP addresses, port numbers, TSI, start and end time, etc. So the FLUTE session declares how ESG data is distributed across different sessions. Transportation is bound session objects FLUTE transfer data on compliance, described in the FDT (table, file delivery) of the FLUTE session. Data on compliance with ESG can be delivered in one or more transport objects. Map matching can be implemented by the XML schema in plain ASCII text, structured ASCII text, such as a multipart MIME or MIME headers in the binary code with the numbered types or various other means known in the art. In this example, the ESG data can be delivered in one or more transport objects, which can be, for example, only in the ALC sessions. Data ESG or parts thereof in some embodiments of the invention can be delivered in one or more sessions FLUTE in addition to sessions ALC or instead.

Service cell broadcast allows to distribute rich interactive multimedia content to a wide audience of mobile users. Such services can be transmitted over a variety of network wide broadcasting such as DVB-T, DVB-H, Qualcomm FLO, T-DMB, S-DMB, WLAN, WiMAX, 3GPP/MBMS, 3GPP2/BCMCS and others.

In addition, the network can be combined with interactive services, such as cellular systems, 2G, 2.5G and 3G, WLAN, etc.

When initializing the terminal connected to the mobile service broadcast can receive parameters or objects configuration channel wide is th broadcast. In one example, the configuration settings received by a terminal may allow the programming of terminal specific provider or service to ensure the service provider can update the settings of the terminal. Together with the initialization of the terminal may perform mutual authentication to accept the terminal data has been verified, and the terminal was authorized to receive the data. This way you can check whether the provider is "right" and whether it can provide the data received by the terminal. Parameters or objects that should be assigned to the terminals, can be distributed across the channel broadcast or by initialization of the terminal. Thus, the provision of the terminal on the broadcast channel different objects or parameters can be performed to manage the configuration of the terminal authentication terminal or service providers, configuration, user rights, connection settings, etc.

In addition, the initialization function of the terminal can be declared in the fragment of an electronic service guide (ESG). The ESG fragment may include various pieces of data, such as, for example, a fragment of a service, piece of content or a fragment of access. To declare an initialization function of the terminal can is t be used any fragment of the ESG, including, for example, a fragment of the service guide fragment access or piece of content.

To initialize the terminal can be implemented by different interfaces. In one example presents the interface to maintain the exchange between the network and the terminal messages initialization and control of the terminal. For example, a bidirectional interaction and network, and the terminal support data exchange for initialization of the terminal. Interface TR-7 is an example of the interface between management subscription OMA BCAST and terminal supporting exchange between the network and the terminal messages initialization and control of the terminal. Such interfaces may be, for example, unidirectional or bidirectional.

In another example, presents an interface that supports the delivery terminal of the initialization messages. For example, initialization messages and the control terminal can be transmitted to the terminal through the broadcast distribution system. The network can support the delivery of messages initialization. Alternatively, the network may not support message delivery initialization. Interface TR-5 is an example of the interface between the distribution/adaptation services OMA BCAST and terminal transmitting to the terminal a message initialize and control the terminal in accordance with this example. Thus, the initialization of the terminal can be declared on interface TR-5, and in the item "BroadcastTransmission" (broadcast) may be a parameter type, such as AccessType (type of access). In addition, the item "BroadcastTransmission can determine access to the session file transfer BCAST. In another example, presents an interface that supports the delivery or exchange of file objects as messages initialization. In one example, the file objects are of type "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml." Interface TR-4 is an example of interrace between distribution/adaptation services OMA BCAST and subscription management OMA BCAST, providing support for the delivery or exchange of file objects as messages initialization. In accordance with this example, the data exchange or data transmitted on interface TR-4, include the initialization messages OMA DM. Also on this interface can be implemented messaging initialization OMA DM as file objects of type "lication/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml".

In one example, the availability or access to the initialization function of the terminal may be provided in the service guide via the session distribution file in which the message initialization of the terminal is transmitted on the appropriate interface, such as interface TR-5. In this example, the initialization messages can be transmitted as a file containing initialization messages. An example of the type of file that contains initialization messages can be "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml" message Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA DM), encoded in the format WAP Binary Extensible Markup Language (WBXML).

In this example, the message OMA DM encoded in WBXML format, can be declared in the service directory. For example, the service guide may contain a fragment of the content, which may include elements, sub-elements and/or attributes to specify characteristics of the service, including message file or initialization parameter.

For example, an attribute or element content type in the file element of the service directory can specify the initialization of the terminal. In this example, the fragment content in the service directory is provided with an element or subelement of the file, which in addition can contain a parameter or an attribute of a content type that includes the message file initialization OMA DM. In this example, the file containing the message initialization OMA DM may have a value of, for example, "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml".

In another example, the piece of content in the service directory can contain a parameter, such as the element FileDescription (file description), where the subcell or parameter contains the message initialization OMA DM. In addition, the file may be located in the subelement or attribute of the element or subelement File Descriptin. For example, the file may have the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml." Also, in another example, the file may be in the subelement or attribute "Content-type" content) of an element or subelement FileDescription (file description).

In addition, a file containing initialization messages OMA DM, can optionally be compressed. In one example, the compression applies to the whole file. In another example, compresses only the selected portion of the file. Compression can be declared and be signaled by setting the corresponding parameter to indicate that the file seatv one example for signaling compression set to "Content-Encoding" encoding content) can be set as "application/gzip".

In another example, the initialization of the terminal can be declared in the fragment of the service guide as a service (the service). A fragment may contain the attribute, such as "type", which can determine the type of service associated with a service reference, and includes a type attribute that describes the type of service Handbook as a service initialization of the terminal.

In another example, to ensure the initialization of the terminal in the service directory is a fragment of access. A fragment may contain a subelement of an access type that can contain the element to determine the type of access. For example, if the initialization of the terminal about the manifest interface TR-5, the access type can contain the element "BroadcastTransmission" (broadcast).

In another example, to initialize the terminal declared interface TR-7 - the interface between management subscription OMA BCAST and the terminal. In this example, the access type can contain the element "InteractiveTransmissionScheme" (interactive scheme transfer). In addition, it can determine access to the appropriate server OMA DM.

In addition, the service directory can contain a fragment of the content, which may include elements, sub-elements and attributes to specify messages initialization of the terminal as a file. For example, the file may have the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

In accordance with another feature of the invention, the initialization of the terminal can be declared as access to the service. In accordance with this example, the fragment of the service guide identifies the service of a particular type. Installed type may include any type, including, for example, the main TV interactive or non-interactive type, broadcasting clips, interactive or non-interactive combination of primary and television broadcasting clips, interactive or non-interactive basic radio service, download files, service management software, etc. in Addition, the fragment access service reference associated with the respective Sluzba is, may contain a parameter, such as ApplicationSpec (application settings), to determine the characteristics of the access, which can be used by the application to receive services. The parameter (e.g. parameter ApplicationSpec) may have the value of the file containing the initialization message. In accordance with one example, the file may have the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml." In addition, the fragment access may include a parameter describing the type of access. This parameter can be, for example, the AccessType parameter (type of access). The parameter describing the type of access may vary depending on the type of interface used in the communication network. For example, the type parameter can have the value "BroadcastTransmission" (broadcast), describing the session distribution files (for example, the FLUTE session), if you use the interface TR-5. Alternatively, the type parameter can have the value "InteractiveTransmissionScheme" (interactive map), describing the access to the corresponding service if the interface TR-7.

In addition, the service Handbook to ensure the initialization of the terminal as access to the service may contain content part to specify messages initialization of the terminal as a file. For example, the file may have the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

Figure 5 is a partial block diagram, pokazivaushee is an example of a receiver or terminal in accordance with features of the invention. In this example, the receiver 500 has an input 501. Input 501 may be configured to receive information transmitted in the form of a fragment of the ESG or when the mechanism of transmission of ESG fragments. The ESG fragment may be received through the interface. As shown in figure 5, the interface TR-7 505 may receive ESG, for example, network a bidirectional interaction. In this example, the message exchange initialization of the terminal can be carried out between the network and the receiver 500. Alternatively, ESG can be received through the interface TR-5 506. In this example, the initialization messages the terminal can be delivered to the receiver 500 via the network. The network may also receive information from the receiver 500. ESG can be input via the interface TR-4 507, where the initialization messages in the ESG provided as file objects. For example, file objects can be of type "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

In addition, the receiver 500 may contain analyzer 502 to determine the parameters in the ESG fragment associated with the initialization of the terminal. For example, the analyzer may determine a parameter associated with a file that contains initialization messages OMA DM. In this example, the parser 502 may identify a piece of content in the service directory. In addition, the parser 502 may determine the attribute contained in the movie content, to install couples who TRS, associated with the initialization of the terminal. In accordance with one example, the attribute may be an attribute of the content type in the element that provides a description of the file (for example, the element FileDescription). The element may be, for example, the element that provides the parameters associated with the file. In one example, the file is set to "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

In the alternative, the parameters associated with the file may be signaled inside the band. In this example, the attribute can be used in the table file delivery (FDT)associated with the content type. For example, the parser 502 may determine the attribute in FDT associated with a content type. In this example, the FDT can be used the content type.

In addition, the receiver 500 may include a processor 503 to control the analyzer 502 to determine the corresponding parameter in the ESG fragment that defines the initialization of the terminal. Data corresponding to the initialization terminal are displayed on the output 504. For example, information may be displayed to the user or consumer.

In one example, the initialization of the terminal is determined in the service directory as a service. Service reference guide, which contains information about the initialization of the terminal is received at the input 501 of the receiver, indicating the types of the TR-7 (505), TR-5 (506) or TR-4 (507). In addition, servicedispatcher may include a fragment service, which, in turn, can contain attribute to display the services initialization of the terminal. In one example, the fragment of the service guide contains the attribute "type"which has a value corresponding to the services initialization of the terminal.

Service reference guide in this example may contain a fragment of access, which may include information related to the initialization of the terminal. A fragment may contain, for example, the type attribute (for example, AccessType), which can show the type of transmission and network access. In one example, service guide received through the interface TR-5 (506), and the type attribute in the fragment access (for example, AccessType) specifies a broadcast transmission. In another example, service guide received through the interface TR-7 (505), and the type attribute in the fragment access (for example, AccessType) indicates an interactive diagram of the transfer.

In addition, the service guide may include a piece of content, which can specify the initialization of the terminal. In this example, service guide received at the input 501 may at the piece of content to include the file that defines the initialization messages of the terminal. In one example, the file is set to "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

The parser 502 receiver 500 may determine the individual parameters or elements, the finding is to be in the service directory. For example, if the initialization of the terminal is declared as a service, the parser 502 may determine the type attribute in the fragment of the service guide received at the input 501. The type attribute may indicate service initialization of the terminal. The analyzer 502 may determine the type attribute in the fragment access service reference. The type attribute in the fragment of access may vary depending on the type of interaction with the network.

For example, if you accepted the service reference, in which the initialization of the terminal is defined through the interface TR-5 (506), the access type may correspond to a broadcast transmission. Alternatively, when the initialization of the terminal is declared via the interface TR-7 (505), the attribute access can match online transfer scheme.

In addition, the receiver may contain a device 508 initialization. Device 508 initialization can handle data in the terminal based on the initialization parameters of the terminal or of the elements identified in the adopted service directory analyzer 502. In one example, the receiver 500 may allow the service provider to update the settings in the receiver based on the initialization parameters of the terminal, received in the service directory. For example, through the interface TR-5 (506) may be accepted service guide, the cat is which contains a fragment of the service-type attribute, pointing to the service initialization terminal fragment of the access type attribute access points to broadcast, and in the fragment of the content file that specifies the initialization messages. The analyzer determines the accepted parameters, elements or files and can use the settings in the receiver 500 based on the parameters received in the file that specifies the initialization messages terminal fragment content. In addition, the receiver can perform the corresponding function on the basis of the initialization file of the terminal, received in the piece of content, or elements or parameters initialization terminal, the received fragment of the service or the fragment access. In another example, the receiver 500 may allow access to the service provider on the basis of the initialization files of the terminal and parameters adopted in the service directory. Also, the service provider may provide access to the program or service associated with the service guide based on the initialization parameters of the terminal or files contained in the service guide. In one alternative embodiment of the invention, the service provider may provide access to the program or service using initialization parameters. In this example, only the portion of the service or program that is executed on the basis of the possibility of using parameters is the moat, giving access, for example, to broadcast and interactive services.

In another example, the initialization of the terminal is declared as access to the service. In this example, the service guide may be received at the input 501 of the receiver 500 via an interface, such as TR-4 (507), TR-5 (506) or the TR-7 (505). The fragment may also contain data about the initialization of the terminal, where the initialization terminal declared as access to the service.

In this example, the service guide may contain a fragment of a service, which, in turn, can contain a type attribute. In addition, the service directory can contain a fragment of access. The fragment may include an element for job application corresponding to the initialization terminal based on the service Handbook. In one example, the element type in the fragment access can be an element AccessType (type of access). In another example, the element type is "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

In addition, service guide in this example can include a snippet of content that may, in turn, contain the file that specifies the initialization of the terminal. In one example, the file is set to "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

Service guide, declaring initialization terminal as access to the service may be made, for example, via the interface TR-5. The analyzer 502 may analyze one of the th reference for definition of parameters, items or files initialization of the terminal. In this example, the service guide contains a fragment of access, which, in turn, contains a type attribute indicating the type of access the broadcast. In another example, service guide received through the interface TR-7 (505), and the attribute of the access type indicates the type of access as an interactive diagram of the transfer.

The settings, items, and files, related or sets the initialization terminal, receive and process. Service reference and associated parameters, elements and files are output through the output 504. The device initialization may perform further processing based on the received settings, items, or files associated with the data about the initialization of the terminal taken in the service directory. For example, the receiver 500 may be authenticated by a separate service provider on the basis of the parameters and initialization files of the terminal, received in the service directory.

6 is a partial block diagram showing an example of a transmitter in accordance with features of the invention. In this example, the transmitter 600 has an input 601 to receive data that should be included in the transmitted fragment of the ESG. These data can be received from various sources, for example from a service provider or service broadcast. PDMI is about this transmitter 600 may include a processor 604 for layout or processing of the fragment of the ESG, the corresponding program or service. Figure 6 shows the processor 604 that contains the module 602 initialization terminal and companysee device 603.

However, any of these components may, if desired, be separate from the processor 604.

Module 602 initialization of the terminal may determine the data about the initialization of the terminal associated with the ESG fragment. For example, the service provider may choose to transmit the information service reference to specific terminals or receivers, for example the terminals and receivers, authorized to receive service Handbook. Thus, initialization information of a terminal belonging to an authorized recipient may be transmitted to the transmitter 600 and for inclusion in the service directory to be processed in the module 602 initialization of the terminal.

In addition, the transmitter 600 may include an interface for coordination with the broadcast system or distribution network. For example, the transmitter may include an interface TR-4 (608), TR-5 (607) or the TR-7 (606). In one example, the service reference is passed to a recipient or group of recipients transmitter 600 in which the interaction with the recipient or group of recipients is not provided. In this example, the transmitter can transmit the service interface reference TR-5 (607). In another example, the service right the nick passed to the recipient, this is provided by the interaction with the user. In this example, the service guide may be transmitted on interface TR-7 (606).

In one example, the transmitter 600 processes the service reference, therefore, to include data about the initialization terminal, declared as a service. In this example, companysee device 603 links service Handbook for transmission over the network to a recipient or group of recipients. In accordance with this example, the authentication information is specified in the parameters, elements or initialization files of the terminal included in the service directory. Companysee device 603 may include in the service guide fragment services, which, in turn, contains the attribute type. In this example, the type attribute can have a value that indicates the service initialization of the terminal. In addition companysee device 603 may include in the service guide fragment of access, which, in turn, contains the element type to determine access to the service directory. For example, in a network system in which a service reference and the corresponding program or service may be transmitted to the recipient in such a way that the interaction or input from the recipient does not appear, the type attribute access in the fragment access may indicate shirokanedai the optimum transmission and service guide can be transmitted on interface TR-5 (607). Alternatively, in a system in which interaction or input from the recipient are displayed, the type attribute access in the fragment access may indicate an interactive diagram of the transmission and service guide can be transmitted on interface TR-7 (606).

Also in this example, companysee device 603 may include in the service guide fragment content, which in turn contains the file to specify messages initialization of the terminal. In one example, the file is set to "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml." The service directory can be removed from the transmitter 600 via the 605 and transmitted to the remote terminal.

In another example, the transmitter 600 composes a service reference, in which the initialization of the terminal is declared as access to the service. In this example, the initialization information of the terminal may be received by module 603 initialization of the terminal. One example includes the authentication information received from the service provider to provide the service reference only to authenticated users. Companysee device 603 can assemble the appropriate service Handbook, including, for example, a fragment of a service fragment and the fragment content. The fragment service m which may contain a type attribute, which may indicate the initialization of the terminal or any type of services. A fragment may contain an element that points to associated with the initialization of the terminal application. For example, a fragment may include the element ApplicationSpec (performance). Element, in turn, can have the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

In addition, the fragment may contain a type attribute to define the access to the service directory. For example, the type can be specified as a broadcast or as an interactive broadcasting scheme, respectively.

Piece of content in this example may include the file that defines the initialization of the terminal. In accordance with one example, the file may have the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

7 is a block diagram depicting an example of a transmission service reference associated with the initialization of the terminal. In this example, the service guide or ESG fragment create in step 702. For example, the transmitter may generate an ESG fragment containing the information related to the corresponding program or service and may include the initialization parameters of the terminal or message for a recipient or group of recipients.

The ESG fragment may contain, for example, a fragment of the service, which, in turn, can contain a type attribute, the corresponding services of the ine is alizatio terminal (step 703). In another example, the parameter or attribute can be an integer value of the type parameter in the fragment service; an integer value indicating the initialization of the terminal.

In addition, the ESG fragment may contain a fragment of access to specify how the terminal can access the service. Fragment of access, in turn, may include an element type to determine access to the service guide or ESG fragment (step 704). In accordance with one example, the access type can be specified as a broadcast (for example, when the transmission interface TR-5). Alternatively, the access type can be specified as an interactive diagram of the transmission (for example, when the transmission interface TR-7). In addition, the fragment may contain an element to indicate the application associated with the initialization of the terminal, such as an element ApplicationSpec with the value application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml (step 704).

In addition, the ESG fragment may contain a fragment of the content, which may include file to set the initialization messages of the terminal (step 705). In one example, the file can be of type "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml", which is the message OMA DM encoded in WBXML format.

In step 706, the ESG fragment is transmitted to the terminal or to the recipient. Thus the terminal or the recipient can receive the th initialization data terminal, such as, for example, parameters, data, or application initialization of the terminal.

Fig is a block diagram depicting an example of a receiver or terminal, receiving initialization data terminal as part of the ESG fragment. In this example, at step 801, the terminal or the receiver receives the ESG fragment. At step 802 the parser in the terminal can analyze the ESG fragment to obtain data associated with the initialization of the terminal. The ESG fragment may contain a fragment of a service, which may contain a parameter, such as the type attribute. This attribute specifies the type of service initialization of the terminal associated with the initialization of the terminal, and can be defined on the terminal (step 803).

In addition, the ESG fragment may include a fragment of access that contains the parameter type. The ESG fragment may contain an element that specifies the application associated with the initialization of the terminal. In one the element is ApplicationSpec with the value "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml."

In addition, the ESG fragment may contain a fragment of the content (step 805), including the file for task messages initialization terminal (step 805). In one example, the file may contain a message about initializing OMA DM. The file can be of type "application/vnd.syncml.dm+wbxml", which is the message OMA DM encoded in WBXML format. In step 806 terminal are accepted and processed which are stated initialization parameters for the terminal.

The technical result is achieved due to that, when transmitting electronic service guide ESG fragments, identifier (ID) values are processed and compared, as well as the version and/or uniform resource identifier (URI) associated with ESG fragments for transmission. ESG fragments are encapsulated into an electronic service guide delivery unit (SGDU) based on processing and comparing values. Similarly, the SGDU can be received in a receiver, data associated with ID values, version and/or URI of the SGDU, and associated ESG fragments can be extracted and compared with already stored values. The SGDU and ESG fragments can be processed in accordance with comparison results.

EFFECT: identification of ESG fragments with small amount of service information.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to digital video broadcasting systems using an electronic service guide (ESG). A device is proposed for handling errors in ESG transmission in a digital video broadcasting system, which includes a service application (SA) component for receiving a request message for file restoration from a communication terminal after transmitting ESG from a service management (SM) component to a terminal and, if the request message for file restoration is an ESG request, providing the SM component with a request message for file restoration and a terminal address; a logic device for compiling ESG for generating ESG within a SM component which interprets the request message and determines whether to resend the ESG to the terminal, and if a decision is made to resend the ESG, the logic device for compiling the ESG sends ESG metadata and terminal address to an interactive server for transmitting ESG within the SM component, and the interactive server sends ESG metadata to the terminal.

EFFECT: design of a video broadcasting system capable of sending a restoration request to a network and receiving a repeatedly transmitted ESG when an error occurs during transmission of the ESG.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to television information media and particularly to configuration of TV-signals and TV-tuners. Proposed is a system/method for automated tuning a TV-signal/tuner in a tuner device (for example a personal computer, personal video recorder, a TV set-top box), which has one or more tuners. Setup identifies the number of tuners in the device, where the tuners are analogue or digital, and the standard supported by each tuner. The geographical are in which the device will receive TV-signals is identified, and tuners supporting that area are identified. Digital tuners are identified as digital in the report when analogue tuners are being interrogated so as to detect acting TV-signals and determine source of any acting TV-signals (for example, an antenna, cable service supplier, TV set-top box).

EFFECT: provision for tuning TV-signals and tuners in media where a large number of different tuner configurations are present in personal computers, for instance which is improved for home entertainment.

SUBSTANCE: mobile terminal for performance of operations with broadcast content comprises controller able to control client application. Client application may perform operations including work in recording mode. In recording mode client application may record content for selected channel and save recorded content in data base. In response to changing channel from selected channel to another channel, client application may initiate time-out of recording for selected channel. Client application may reset time-out of recording for selected channel at each subsequent event of changing channels back to selected channel. However, if time-out of recording expires before its reset at the following event of changing channels back to selected channel, client application may terminate recording of content for selected channel.

EFFECT: reduction of delay related to switching of channels.
