I-O Data Vista TV Tuners

I-O Data on Thursday revealed a pair of TV tuners to coincide with the introduction of Windows Vista and its updated Media Center home theater software. Announced in both PCI and USB editions, the GV-MC both play and record analog TV signals in Microsoft's new operating system as well as in Windows XP Media Center Edition. Either version accepts RCA and S-video as a source, I-O Data says; the PCI card's larger size also permits a co-axial plug for direct cable TV video. A quality image is promised with a 10-bit DAC and noise reduction compensating for weak broadcasts.

The tuners are currently slated to appear in Japan during late January at prices of $105 (PCI) and $123 (USB), releasing just before Vista arrives at the end of the same month. An optional infrared remote will work with either GV-MC model for $36. [Via I4U]
