The entire range of screen usage is covered and, in addition to TV consumption, the research also includes the use of video, DVDs, Teletext, video games and set-top boxes etc.
The data stored in the Telecontrol device is automatically called up and sent via the phone line overnight. A central computer then evaluates all the data collected and produces statistics for further processing.
