Hybrid Set-Top-Box and IDTVs for IP and DVB reception

With the ISIO product series, TechniSat is introducing IP reception to its multi-tuner IDTVs – providing a fourth content delivery format to the existing DVB-S, DVB-C and DVB-T reception. The MultyVision ISIO IDTVs feature eLED Technology and offer outstanding features and functionality, including DVR (Digital Video Recorder) and multimedia playback from external storage and networked PCs. The IP functionality provides UPnP/DLNA connectivity, HbbTV compatibility and widget support. Furthermore the range provides the TechniFamily feature, an extended EPG and Video On Demand support. TechniSat would like to invite all those interested in this new generation of IDTVs and STBs to Hall 1, Booth A.44 at IBC 2010 in Amsterdam.

Freeview HD in the UK with the HDFV

The HDFV is designed for the reception of the Freeview HD service, offering viewers the opportunity to watch spectacular high definition programming from BBC HD, ITV1 HD and C4HD via their existing TV aerial.

The HDFV offers class-leading functionality including multimedia playback from USB storage devices and networked PCs or Network Attached Storage (NAS) – as well as Digital Video Recorder (DVR) functionality via USB to an external hard disk drive.

Embracing the concept of the connected home, the HDFV can connect to a home network using a fixed connection or wirelessly with the optional TechniSat WLAN Adaptor. Not only does this allow movies, music and pictures to be streamed directly from the PC or NAS to the TV, but ensures access to online services such as BBC iPlayer and ITV Player when they become available.

The HDFV is ‘DVRready’ to enable live pause, timeshift and recording of programmes to external hard disk drives or memory sticks via the USB port. Recordings can also be edited to add bookmarks, copy or delete sections of video or rename. Files can then be transferred to a PC or NAS for storage.

New PC Products launch in 2010

TechniSat is an established manufacturer of high quality DVB-PC products. At IBC 2010, TechniSat will demonstrate two new PC devices for the reception of HD television via a PC or laptop. The first – to launch in August – is the SkyStar USB HD. This product is a DVB-S/DVB-S2 digital receiver that allows the reception of both standard and high definition free to air programming. Its small form factor offers a compact and stylish solution for watching and recording TV on a PC or laptop via USB – it is also compatible with Windows 7.

The second new PC product launching later this year is the SkyStar 2 Express HD. This is a PCI – Express card for the reception of SD and HD television via satellite and is provided with both full and half height brackets.

Each product is provided with DVBViewer TE2 software and EVE v2 software for editing recordings.

Experience 3D TV on the PC with TechniSat PC Products

The SkyStar products can be enabled to view 3D services such as the Astra 3D Promo channel on Astra 23.5º East. A plug-in for DVBViewer TE2 processes the 3D transmission and presents 3D video that can be experienced using red/cyan anaglyph glasses.
