AVerMedia unveils hybrid HDTV ExpressCard tuner

updated 11:35 am EDT, Wed August 1, 2007

AVerTV Hybrid ExpressCard

AVerMedia expanded its notebook TV tuner options on Wednesday and introduced the Hybrid ExpressCard. The card fits into the 54mm slot of many more recent notebooks and gives their owners the opportunity to watch TV no matter where they may be. World analog tuning provides at least basic signals anywhere on Earth; North American residents have the added luxury of HDTV with an additional ATSC tuner for over-the-air shows up to 1080i. Either delivery method can be captured to MPEG-2 with hardware encoding; users of Windows XP Media Center or Vista Home Premium will also see the Hybrid surface as a normal TV tuner for DVR and live viewing functions.

The ExpressCard tuner includes an FM tuner for radio functions and is packed with both a remote and a mini-antenna for improved reception. AVerMedia says the Hybrid is shipping today and sells for $130.
