Streaming PC TV for iTech and Pinnacle
While developing their HTPC (Home Theater PC) solutions, both iTech and Pinnacle wanted to offer customers more than just the ability to watch TV on their computers. They wanted to give customers control over the stream, allowing them to record and play back at will, and even have the ability to use DVR-type controls (technologies that did not exist for TV at that point).
In our partnerships with both iTech and Pinnacle, Videon drew on our connections with leading semiconductor companies. We built PC add-in cards that integrated the chips, middleware and overall design interface into products that seamlessly integrated HDTV onto a personal PC.
These innovative solutions were some of the first PC upgrade cards that supported time shifted video, a technology that put our customers on the cutting edge of their industry.
