ATI delivers HDTV reception on the PC

HDTV broadcasts can be enjoyed now on the PC with the new HDTV WONDER™ announced today by ATI Technologies Inc. North American customers will be able to tune in and watch high-definition television (HDTV) programs on the PC without having to purchase an expensive TV that could cost more than $2,000. HDTV in North America offers up to 5.5 times the pixels as standard TV resolution resulting.

In addition to supporting analog NTSC cable, the HDTV WONDER graphics cards allow consumers to experience the new ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) digital, free-to-air HDTV broadcasts without having to subscribe to cable or satellite subscription services. HDTV WONDER offers the advanced personal video recorder (PVR) enabling consumers to watch, pause and record both analog and HDTV programs. Additionally, HDTV WONDER offers the ability to archive content directly to DVD for personal use.

HDTV WONDER incorporates ATI´s own NXT2004™ VSB/QAM receiver designed to receive off-air DTV signals in a wide variety of signal reception environments. NXT2004 integrates features such as advanced multipath cancellation, tuner control and all-digital carrier recovery circuitry that eliminates the need for any other external components.

Starting this spring, HDTV WONDER will be available as a bundled purchase with selected ALL-IN-WONDER graphics cards and separately on ATI´s website followed by broad distribution in retail stores. Additionally, HDTV WONDER will be offered in Hy-Tek´s Tekpanel 300HD and the Tekpanel 370HD, wide-screen all-in-one multimedia computers for home or office.
