Abstract

The newest entries for paging products made to deliver alphanumeric messaging have increased screen (LCD-liquid crystal display) sizes which allow for multiline presentation of the received data. As a result, the ability to control the style and type of LCD portrayals is only limited by the capability of the dis- play and its associated display driver circuitry. The intent of this document is to describe a system advan- tage which can be gained in the transfer of priority messaging to the pager user using a new display con- trol capability.

VISUAL PERSUASION DISPLAY PAGER

by William J. Kuznicki

  The newest entries for paging products made to deliver alphanumeric messaging have increased screen (LCD-liquid crystal display) sizes which allow for multiline presentation of the received data. As a result, the ability to control the style and type of LCD portrayals is only limited by the capability of the dis- play and its associated display driver circuitry. The intent of this document is to describe a system advan- tage which can be gained in the transfer of priority messaging to the pager user using a new display con- trol capability.

  Options are available today on Motorola display pagers that modify the normal alert tone cadence or override the silent alert (vibrator) mode with a unique audible alert tone sequence to signify when a priority alert message has been received by the pager. Obvi- ously, when the user is physically able to listen to and recognize the significance of this priority paging event, the paging event can be dealt with in an appro- priate manner. The user should be able to establish a more permanent means of being able to read the mes- sage initially or reread an earlier received message and understand its intended degree of importance without the benefit of having heard its associated audible alert sequence. When the pager has the ability to adjust the normal sized multiline presentation messages to a pri- ority size format, this new style of message delivery and pager user awareness can be offered by the paging service. The details associated with shifting the dis- plays normal font size/style to bring about this visual persuasion messaging are shown below:
