NVIDIA Introduces Dual-Analog TV Tuner for PCs
Posted on 6-Apr-2006 13:18. | Tags Filed under: News.

NVIDIA Corporation is introducing the NVIDIA DualTV tuner, with two TV tuners on a single card, personal video recording functionality, and support for the Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) operating system.

The NVIDIA DualTV tuner transforms an MCE-equipped PC into a true home entertainment system. With a touch of a mouse button, users can schedule recordings of their favorite TV shows and watch them when they want, record two TV shows simultaneously, or watch one channel while recording another, as well as watch pause, and rewind live or recorded TV shows.

With the emergence of portable media players and ubiquitous broadband availability, NVIDIA DualTV users can watch their programs from almost anywhere, in the home, or on the go over the Internet. Live or recorded shows can be streamed throughout the home to game consoles or Media Center Extenders; and with Orb Networks software, NVIDIA DualTV tuner users can watch live or recorded TV shows from anywhere in the world over the Internet for personal use.

The NVIDIA DualTV tuner comes with the MediaSqueeze technology that allows users to store more of their TV programs on a hard disk, DVD, or portable media player. Users can record live TV shows at a lower bit-rate than normal or "transrate" previously-recorded TV programs into a lower bit-rate to preserve disk space, without significant loss in picture quality according to the company.

The NVIDIA DualTV tuner is available for US$169 from the NVIDIA Store Web site.
