ASUS hub offers HDTV-in for computer displays

updated 04:40 pm EST, Wed February 20, 2008


ASUS has revealed the HDTV Suite-HDMI, a unique media hub that allows PC users to turn their monitors into Full HDTVs. The stand-alone TV box offers HD video up to a 1,920x1,200 resolution -- even higher than full HD, the company notes -- and will up-convert any signals it receives to 1080p. Source input selection is relatively broad as the Suite-HDMI includes both its namesake HDMI as well as RF, DVI/VGA for PCs, S-Video, composite and component. The hub allows flexible peripherals support as well: via HDMI, DVI/VGA and line-out, the Suite-HDMI also permits using a monitor as part of a multimedia center without ever having to turn on the computer also attached to the device.

A full-function remote and on-screen display complete the home theater experience, while a picture-in-picture function allows for simultaneous viewing such as watching sports while browsing the Internet. ASUS also claims their HD-on-PC solution will also provide a sharper and clearer TV picture than traditional video processing thanks to onboard correction for deblocking and flesh tones.

ASUS has made no mention of either a release date or pricing for the device.
