Steven Craig Franks
In this thesis, an Interactive Video Data Service (IVDS) is developed. This service provides a mechanism for television viewers to interact with the program they are watching. Possible interactions include purchasing products from home shopping programs and requesting information from advertisers. Within the project, two areas were focused upon: channel simulation and the Repeater Unit. Additionally, the overall system was discussed along with its background.
The purpose of channel simulation was to demonstrate the viability of the unique communication channel model proposed for the IVDS system. This channel was implemented using uni-directional transmissions, without acknowledgments.
The Repeater Unit was designed to be a message processing system, intended to relay messages from system users to the home office. The design entailed both hardware and software. The hardware requirements were for a high level design, while the software required not only design, but implementation.
