In distributing cable television services, the head-end includes a satellite dish antenna for receiving incoming programming. This programming is then passed on to the subscriber. (Cable TV companies may also play videotapes and originate live programming.) Normally, all signals are those that are sent downstream to the subscriber, but some are received upstream such as when a customer requests a pay-per-view program. When a cable company provides Internet access to subscribers, the head-end includes the computer system and databases needed to provide Internet access. The most important component located at the head-end is the cable modem termination system (CMTS), which sends and receives digital cable modem signals on a cable network and is necessary for providing Internet services to cable subscribers.

INFORMATION ON HOW TO EFFECT DRAWING CHANGES 1. Correction of Informalities-37 CFR 1.85 File new drawings with the changes incorporated therein . The application number or the title of the invention, inventor's name, docket number (if any), and the name and telephone number of a person to call if the Office is unable to match the drawings to the proper application, should be placed on the back of each sheet of drawings in accordance with 37 CFR 1 .84(c) . Applicant may delay filing of the new drawings until receipt of the Notice of Allowability (PTOL-37). Extensions of time may be obtained under the provisions of 37 CFR 1 .136. The drawing should be filed as a separate paper with a transmittal letter addressed to the Drawing Review Branch. 2. Tinning of Corrections Applicant is requited to submit acceptable corrected drawings within the three-month shortened statutory period set in the Notice of Allowability (PTOL-37). If a correction is determined to be tmaeeeptable by the OfBoe, applicant must arrange to have acceptable correction resubmitted within the original thrx-month period to avoid the necessity ofobtaining as extension of time and paying the extension fee . Tberefore, applicant should file corrected drawings as soon as possible . Failure to take corrective action within set (or extended) period will result in ABANDONMENT of the Application. 3 Correrions other than InformaMes Noted by the Drawing Review Brwtch on the Form PTO 948 All changes to the drawings,'other than informalities noted by the Drawing Review Branch, MUST be approved by the examines before the application will be allowed No changes will be permitted to be made, other than correction of informalities, unless the examiner has approved the proposed changes. EXHIBIT O AI R ) PATENT Attorney Docket No . 2473 .0001-03 IN THE UNITED STATES PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE ` Group Art Unit : 2614 Serial No . : 081630,590 I Filed : April 10, 1996 l } IJ For: AUDIO AND VIDEO TRANSMISSION) ND RECEIVING SYSTEM j' II Assistant Commissioner of Patents Washington, D.C . 20231 AMENDMENT Examiner: Amanda Le In response to the July 24, 1997 Office Action, please consider the following Remarks : EMARKS I II n the Office Action, the Examiner rejected claims 33 and 34 under 35 U.S .C . I I ; § 102(e) as anticipated by U.S . Patent No . 5,195,092 issued to Wilson et al . The G j Wilson et al . patent discloses an interactive multimedia presentation and communication system. More specifically, Wilson et al teaches an "electronic ~ ; shopping mall" in which a subscriber tunes his television to a particular channel, 4CAN, HFUDESSOH, '00 x s*acr, ft . w. - c20005 .Grow,c .0a- .0*- .000 AABU9, GARAErr, , DuNNEA .L-L.Y. ,i II I; . ~~ 1, lines 19-37. When the shopper chooses to terminate a shopping session, he simply termination script is sent to the subscriber. System resources can then be assigned to a subsequent shopper. See col. 30, lines 19-35 . li y Wilsont al . teaches a system significantly different e from the present Wilson invention . For example, er al . requires that the shopper be connected to the system resources by telephone for the duration of the transaction. This limits both telephone use by the subscriber as well as the availability of system resources to other subscribers . Furthermore, in Wilson et al - the subscriber is required to be physically !! present at the location to which information is transmitted . I 1n contrast, the present invention provides a flexible system in which a user can remotely access information. That is, the user can request transmission of information to a site remote from the requesting site. Additionally, with the present information system that displays multimedia presentations in the form of video i images and accompanying audio on various items selected by the subscriber. See col . hangs up his phone . The hang-up signal is routed to the session server and a telephones a local number, follows log-on instructions given over the telephone. and then uses the touch-tone keypad of his telephone to navigate through an electronic invention the user does not have to be connected by telephone when information is transmitted from the library to the selected remote location . This frees up system resources for use by others and makes the system much more convenient to use than that disclosed in Wilson et al. I-4ECrW, HENDEMN, !VUEdi1.

Patent No, 5,130,792 issued to Tjn~- a., data from a central data facility 10 is transmitted over I telephone network 12 to a receiving unit 16 . Fig . 5 ` . -According to Tindell et 11 The Til]& LCLal . Patent discloses a store and forward video system . of Tindell et . discloses the al a . details of the receiving unit 16, which, according to Tindeli et al ., is at a remote location . The receiving unit 16 receives information from the telephone network and . i ultimately stores the information in a mass storage device 78 . The data is stored in the mass storage device 78 in a compressed format and is stored until the entire requested program is downloaded from the central data facility 10 . According to T indell et al ., the mass storage device 78 is preferably an erasable optical disk or other similar high density storage medium . When a viewer selects the play mode, the control unit 72 causes the data stored in the mass storage device 78 to be transferred through storage interface 76 to data decompression unit 82 . The signal is AID converted and reconstructed and then the composite video signal is output for viewing . As is clear from well et al ., the receiving unit 16 at the user premises contains the mass storage device 78 and stores the compressed programming for viewing after decompression and processing . In contrast, according to the present invention, the compressed data is stored at a local reception system (claim 35) or a local distribution system (claims 39 and 42) . The compressed data is stored at the MEGAN, HENDERSON, ARADO", GA&APTT, 8 DIINNER .L.L.P . 300 1 SNO"Oro», s+wccr, w . ... oc 10005 a0:-on " 000 3 Y local facility and is sent at a real time rate to a subscriber receiving station . Use of a local reception or distribution system is neither taught nor suggested by TiadgIl,Ztal . and such a system considerably simplifies and reduces the cost of the components required at the user end . That is, by storing the requested compressed information I ~I locally, the subscriber does not need to have compressed data storage or decompression circuitry at his location . Rather, a local facility can have these elements and they can be distributed or shared between a plurality of users in a local . ii region. If there are any other fees due in connection with the filing of this h Amendment, please charge the fees to our Deposit Account No. 06-0916 . If a fee is i i' such an extension is requested and the fee should also be charged to our Deposit Account. Respectfully submitted, FINNEGAN, HENDERSON, FARABOW .
