I-O Data intros SEG Clip

I-O Data has recently launched its latest SEG Clip, the GV-SC310, which connects to PCs via a USB connection and picks up 1Seg TV broadcasts. The tuner then has the ability to send these broadcasts wirelessly, whether live or recorded, to Sony's PSP or to iPhones and iPod touch devices.

Users only need to install a SEG Clip companion app on their portable devices, with the iPhone/iPod software presumably available from the App Store. The recorded programs can also be transferred wirelessly and stored on an iPhone or iPod. Both the iPhone 3G and 3GS are supported along with the second-generation iPod touch. The device can only be paired with Windows PCs.

The SEG Clip USB 1Seg TV Tuner will go on sale in Japan later in August, priced at the equivalent of about $66. A competing product, Softbank's official 1Seg tuner for the iPhone, foregoes the PC compatibility and limits it to live broadcasts. It is self-powered and therefore more portable, but also costlier at about $102. [via Akihabara]
