AVerMedia unveiled the AVerTV USB HD DVR – a self-powered USB High Definition video capture device that allows users to connect to a Cable/Satellite Set-Top-Box or HD gaming console and capture High Definition video content to their Windows 7 compatible PC. “HD DVR contains an added bonus by allowing users to play back recorded content saved on their PC or laptop directly to a TV at HD 1080i resolution with HDMI connection. In addition to its recording features, DVR can also be used to convert content from old VCR video tapes into Digital format from S-Video/Composite. With advanced hardware transcoding technology, the DVR saves CPU processing time and hard drive space by transcoding large MPRG-2 video files into H.264 format, which will maintain video quality at a smaller size. DVR includes Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre software program, which offers a built-in recording feature so you can schedule the start and end time of a TV show from an HD Cable/Satellite Set-Top-Box,” Dix says.
