Remote interactive multimedia preview and data collection kiosk system

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #5949411.

A system for previewing movies, videos, music, and other events, has a host data processing network connected via modem with one or more media companies and with one or more remote kiosks to transmit data between the media companies and the kiosks, so that the data can be accessed by users at the remote kiosks. A touch screen and user-friendly graphics encourage use of the system. Video images, graphics and other data received from the media companies are suitably digitized, compressed, and otherwise formatted by the host for use at the kiosk. This enables movies, videos, music and special events to be previewed at strategically located kiosks, and the data can be updated or changed, as desired, from the host.
