Broadcast and On-line Services: Search, select, and rightful use of content on personal storage systems ("TV-Anytime"); Part 6: Delivery of metadata over a bi-directional network; Sub-part 3: Phase 2 - Exchange of Personal Profile
|Publication Date:||1 December 2012|
The present Phase 2 document extends the scope for data exchange between users and content/service providers. The exchange of such user profiles offers a number of possible benefits to both consumers and service providers. For example, a personalized web-service in which a service provider provides the response of user's request using his consumer profile data in a secure environment, can offer the consumer a personally relevant content.
TV-Anytime Phase 1 and Phase 2 offers an evolutionary range of features which describe PDR (Personal Digital Recorder) usage models that the TV-Anytime standards facilitate.
The features are supported and enabled by the specifications for Metadata (TS 102 822-3-1 , TS 102 822-3-2 , TS 102 822-3-3  and TS 102 822-3-4 ), Content Referencing (TS 102 822-4 ), Rights Management (TS 102 822-5-1  and TS 102 822-5-2 ), Bi-directional Metadata Delivery (TS 102 822-6-1 , TS 102 822-6-2  and the present document) and Protection (TS 102 822-7 ), Interchange Data Format (TS 102 822-8 ) and Remote Programming (TS 102 822-9 ).
These specifications enable search, select, acquire and rightful use of content on local and/or remote personal storage systems from both broadcast and online services.
Although TV-Anytime Phase 1 already provides a rich and varied set of metadata including user preferences and usage history to describe content and usage, the possibilities of exchanging this data were limited (TS 102 822-6-1  and TS 102 822-6-2 ).
The exchange of personal data should be designed to support:
• Providers receiving data from a wide range of PDR devices from different users.
• Service providers receiving detailed and comprehensive user related data.
• Consumers confidence in the services (e.g. billing, tracking, monitoring).
• Consumers searching, selecting and acquiring content of their direct interest such as programmes with additional audio description services for improved access, or local news, or specific travel data.
• Consumers "carrying" their profiles and other personal data.
• Content providers and creators understanding their audiences better.
• Developing a wider range of t-Commerce (particularly PPV) and other network service business models.
• Maximizing the resources of a wide range of user appliances like a set-top-box or a PDA.
The present document describes mechanisms for requesting metadata from, and submitting user's personal profile data to, IP based web services. In the present document, these web services are termed "personalized services". The present document complements TS 102 822-6-1 , which specifies a client initiated means for requesting TV-Anytime metadata from IP-based metadata services and also provides detailed service scenarios.
