Hauppauge products are on display at the CeBIT technology fair in Hannover, Germany at Hall 23, Booth 51.
The addition of DivX technology to the Hauppauge product line will allow users to record television content in high-quality DivX on their PC and then easily transfer that content to a home theatre. The WinTV line of products enables PC users to watch and record television content, and Hauppauge consumers can now record their favorite TV shows using the high-quality DivX codec. Often called the â€œMP3 of video,â€ DivX is among the world’s most popular video technologies with over 120 million global users. The superior compression and visual quality of DivX video enables users to store and distribute DVD-quality videos at 1/10th the size of MPEG-2, the DVD standard.
Hauppauge will also offer DivX support for the innovative MediaMVP digital media receiver. MediaMVP is a device that connects to a television and receives digital media (music, videos and pictures) from a PC over a home network. The addition of DivX support will allow users to play DivX movies stored on a PC hard drive directly on a television. The MediaMVP also supports the conversion of PAL video to NTSC format, and vice versa, enabling DivX users to convert content recorded into one format for playback in another. To support Hauppauge’s end to end solution for home media delivery, DivX content recorded on the PC will initially be transcoded into MPEG for playback on the MediaMVP. Hauppauge will work with DivXNetworks to obtain official DivX Certification for the MediaMVP in the near future, enabling users to directly decode all versions of DivX video on the device.
â€œDivX is an immensely popular and powerful video compression technology with a significant global brand, and we’re excited to add DivX support to our WinTV and MediaMVP products,â€ said Ken Plotkin, CEO of Hauppauge Computer Works. â€œUsers can now record all their favorite TV shows in DivX on their PCs using WinTV and then easily playback that content on their TV sets with the MediaMVP.â€
â€œHauppauge has a clear and compelling vision of the networked multimedia home, and their products are leading the way to a high-quality, affordable connected consumer experience,â€ said Kevin Hell, chief marketing officer and managing director at DivXNetworks, Inc. â€œThe DivX brand fits perfectly with the Hauppauge product line, and we are excited to enable our users to easily move their DivX videos beyond the PC. We look forward to working with Hauppauge to obtain full DivX Certification for the MediaMVP product in the future.â€
