Beta Program Allows Users to Take the Award Winning Moxi Menu for a Test Drive
KIRKLAND, Wash. — Digeo, Inc., makers of the Emmy®-award winning Moxi digital media recorders (DMR), today announced Moxi TV for PC, a software application enabling PC users who have a TV tuner card and Windows XP to use their personal computer as a DMR. With Moxi TV for PC, users can watch, record and play TV content from their PC. For a limited time, those interested can sign up to for the Moxi TV for PC beta program at www.moxi.com. The beta will be available to beta testers for download at no cost.
Moxi TV for PC offers the same award-winning Moxi Menu and a new, improved version of the user experience found in the popular Moxi television set-top boxes, which are currently delivered through cable operators. It includes many of the Moxi features planned for the highly-anticipated Moxi Multi-Room HD DMR, available soon via retail outlets. As consumers increasingly look to their PC as a complement to their TV watching routine, Moxi TV for PC stands to offer better overall navigation and usability.
“We have always been committed to delivering the best consumer experience and Moxi TV for PC is no exception,” said Mike Fidler, CEO of Digeo. “There is tremendous opportunity to improve the home theater PC experience, and the Moxi TV for PC beta offers a glimpse at the potential for the space. We welcome this chance to provide select consumers a sneak peak of the Moxi experience as we near delivery of solutions for both the PC and the TV.”
Unlike other PVR software applications which have traditionally targeted the technology enthusiast, Moxi TV for PC brings a more mainstream appeal to the category by applying best practices in TV navigation and design. With the popular Moxi Menu, users are able to intuitively explore two weeks of TV programming, watch live TV, schedule recordings and access other multimedia features including music, photos, and DVD viewing. Moxi TV for PC currently supports standard definition recording and works with an expanding list of tuner cards, including the most popular models used today.
Current home theater PC enthusiasts, users of alternative PVR or DVR software applications and others who would enjoy more flexibility in where and when they watch TV are encouraged to participate in the Moxi TV for PC beta program. The Moxi TV for PC beta program will be available to a select group of participants for a limited time only, and candidates will be considered on a first come, first serve basis.
