Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 725: Interactive Video Distribution Systems

This class contains interactive video distribution processes, systems, and elements thereof, which are characterized by point-to-multipoint system configurations, and which are used for the unidirectional distribution or delivery of motion video data resulting from interactions between systems operators (access or service providers) or users (subscribers) and systems elements. These systems include dedicated communications systems, such as television distribution systems, which primarily distribute or deliver motion video data in the manner indicated, but which may, in addition, provide a framework for further, diverse data communications or services in either unidirectional or bidirectional form. Typically, system operators interface with transmitter-side elements or users interface with receiver-side elements in order to facilitate, through interaction with such elements, the dynamic control of data processing or data flow at various points in the systems. This interaction is typically occasional or intermittent in nature.

Subclass 37: OPERATOR INTERFACE
Subclass 39: Electronic program guide
Subclass 44: Content arrangement
Subclass 46: Based on personal preference, profile, or viewing history (e.g., to produce redacted listing)
Subclass 52: Navigational feature
Subclass 53: Searching (e.g., by title or actors name)
Subclass 110: Connection to external network at receiver (e.g., set-top box)
Subclass 142: Having particular storage feature

Class 348: Television

Generating, processing, transmitting or transiently displaying a sequence of images, either locally or remotely, in which the local light variations composing the images may change with time.

Subclass 564: Simultaneously and on same screen (e.g., multiscreen)
Subclass 569: Receiver indicator (e.g., on screen display)
Subclass E7.071: Direct or substantially direct transmission and handling of requests (EPO)
Subclass E5.002: Multimedia set-top circuitry for digital video services (EPO)
Subclass E5.105: Menu-type displays (EPO)
Subclass E5.108: For the reception of a digital modulated video signal (EPO)

Class 715: Data Processing: Presentation Processing Of Document

This class provides for data processing means or steps wherein a) human perceptible elements of electronic information (i.e., text or graphics) are gathered, associated, created, formatted, edited, prepared, or otherwise processed in forming a unified collection of such information storable as a distinct entity, b) a users interaction with a computer system is used to control the presentation of display data; such interaction is interpreted and used by a data processor or computer architecture wherein system level elements of computation or data processing techniques are used prior to use with or in a specific display system, or c) a small program takes over a display screen if there are no keystrokes or mouse movements for a specified duration.

Subclass 721: Indexed control

Class 386: Television Signal Processing For Dynamic Recording Or Reproducing

Apparatus and corresponding processes for processing a sequence of images, in which the light variation composing the images may change with time for dynamic recording or reproducing of the sequence of images. The processing involves the following steps: (a) Receiving a sequence of images from a local (e.g., camera, etc.) or remote source (e.g. broadcasting station, satellite, cable, etc.); (b) Converting the received sequence of images into a form suitable for dynamic storage, which form may or may not be reproduced later; or (c) Converting retrieved information from a dynamic storage medium into a sequence of images.

Subclass E5.001: TELEVISION SIGNAL RECORDING (EPO)
Subclass E5.043: On tape (EPO)
Subclass E9.013: Involving data reduction (EPO)

Class G9B/27.051:


Class G9B/27.002:


Class G9B/27.012:


Class G9B/27.019:


Class 707: Data Processing:Database And File Management Or Data Structures

This is the generic class for data processing apparatus and corresponding methods for the retrieval of data stored in a database or as computer files. It provides for data processing means or steps for generic data, file and directory upkeeping, file naming, and file and database maintenance including integrity consideration, recovery, and versioning. There are three main divisions: 1. database and file accessing; 2. database schema and data structure; 3. file and database maintenance.
