El Gato EyeTV Diversity
Tomorrow's opening of the 2006 Apple Expo in Paris is expected to see the introduction of numerous Mac- and iPod-related devices targeted at European customers. Announcing early is EyeTV Hybrid manufacturer El Gato, whose EyeTV Diversity (not pictured) is a USB 2.0 adapter that can play and record over-the-air digital television in the European Digital Video Broadcast - Terrestrial (DVB-T) format. The new 3-band tuner adds dual built-in antennas that improve reception indoors by as much as 50% by internal amplification of weak signals, El Gato says. The EyeTV Diversity includes El Gato's EyeTV 2 software to record and manage incoming video. Further details about the new adapter should follow after its formal demonstration at Apple Expo.
