Compro Introduces VideoMate TV Ultra PCI Tuner Card
Brings ultimate TV picture quality and remote control convenience to your PC
Taipei, Taiwan – Jan 21, 2004 – Multimedia products and graphics card maker Compro Technology today announced availability of the VideoMate TV Ultra PCI Tuner Card. Featuring 3D Y/C separation, remote controlled computer power up, Power Up Scheduling, and ComproPVR software, VideoMate TV Ultra brings a superior video experience into your life by combining an exceptionally clear picture, powerful remote control functions, and personal digital video recording (DVR) functionality in your PC.
At its introduction VideoMate TV was praised on Internet forums for its high quality picture. VideoMate TV Ultra adds an NEC 3D Y/C separation and noise reduction chip found on expensive, high-end television sets. The 3D Y/C separation chip provides sharper details and more vivid colors compared to standard comb filters found in most TV sets and TV cards. The included Tweak Y/C utility lets users fine tune the Y/C separation function to best match the type of programming they watch, providing better picture quality than high-end TVs. The 3D Y/C separation and video noise reduction functions can also be used when transferring video from videotapes.
Further enhancing the home entertainment PC experience, users can both shut down and power up their PC with the supplied remote control, just a like standard TV and VCR. Power Up Scheduling lets you program your PC to record programs in the future and shut down your PC (ACPI:S5 Soft Off) at night or when you are away from home. At the right time, VideoMate TV starts your PC, records your show and shuts down your PC. Finally, you can throw away that old, tired VCR.
The included ComproPVR software lets users watch and record live TV. It also supports advanced digital video recorder functions, such as DVD-quality MPEG-2 encoding and timeshifting.
By complete integration of hardware and software support, Compro unleashes the convenience of digital technology in your life, bringing you continuous innovation in convenience and video quality.
