Intervideo Touts Instant On PVR Technology

InterVideo, Inc. announced today that it has added new Personal Video Recorder (PVR) capabilities and DVD burning functionality to its innovative InstantON technology.

InterVideo will be demonstrating the power and versatility of its newly enhanced  software at CeBIT 2004, Booth A42, Hall 22 this week. InterVideo InstantON is  a modular solution that brings the benefits of a consumer electronic (CE) device to a PC, turning it into a cost-effective home entertainment center. A new concept in PC/CE convergence, InstantON delivers TV, radio, music, videos and burning to DVD with the fast, CE-like access and the remote control consumers prefer.

With the new PVR tools that have been added, InstantON can also be used for time-shifting capabilities that allow users to pause and replay live TV and record favorite shows for later viewing. The enhanced capabilities of the DVD burning feature allows users to quickly burn TV programs and videos directly to DVD to be enjoyed in their living room, on their laptop or shared with family and friends.

InterVideo InstantON’s dual-boot configuration allows a single PC to be used for both computing tasks and entertainment. After a brief boot-up in Linux
