Hauppauge, the world leading developer and manufacturer of PC TV solutions, today announces the availability of the WinTV-MiniStick-HD; the smallest ever USB2 TV-stick introduced within the company’s DVB-T product line.
The compact stick receives free to air DVB-T channels as well as offering digital video recorder functionality. Once plugged into the USB2 port of a laptop or PC, DVB-T channels can be viewed, recorded or played-back via the TimeShift-function, in a scalable window or in full screen mode.
The latest WinTV v7 HD software includes features such as an inbuilt TV recording scheduler and electronic programme guide in one compact and easy to use application. The software supports high definition H.264 broadcasts when available and allows the user to play high definition videos from a hard drive.
Available immediately with an SRP of £49.99, the WinTV-MiniStick-HD is offered with an IR remote control transmitter, USB extension cable, a portable DVB-T antenna and WinTV v7 HD software. The latest software supports both MPEG standards, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) for DVB-T.
For SD viewing (MPEG-2-format) with WinTV v7 HD software, the connected PC requires a 1.6 GHz processor, Windows XP (SP2) or Windows Vista (32/64bit) system and a free USB-2 port. Reception of HD content (H.264 format) requires a processor in the performance class of an Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GHz.
