Watch favourite home TV programmes anywhere in the world!
The SAPPHIRE HD 5570 XtendTV card is a single slot PCI-Express graphics card with 1GB of GDDR5 memory and HDMI and DVI outputs – and a built in programmable TV tuner. Connected to a standard TV antenna signal, it will receive and decode all of the local free to air TV and radio stations*. Just as with a regular TV tuner, the user can watch TV on the host PC using Media Center – record, save and playback programs at will.
But XtendTV does more. Installing the FlexiStream software on the PC in which the card is installed enables the PC as a streaming server and users can watch all of their home TV programmes anywhere in the world using the XtendTV client on a remote PC or laptop**.
Based on FlexiTV and Flexistream technologies from Mirics, the SAPPHIRE XtendTV solution uses the Accelerated Parallel Processing (stream processing) capability of the on-board HD 5570 graphics chip smoothly to decode the TV signals and to compress the stream for viewing over the internet.
With SAPPHIRE Xtend TV you are watching programmes on your own PC – streamed to you over the internet on a one-to-one basis – so there are no blocks on the availability of programmes wherever you may be – and no additional licence required.
