Catering to users who require simultaneous viewing and recording of digital and analog TV on their PCs, ASUS has introduced the new PCI-express TV card, the ASUS My Cinema – PE9400 Combo.
The PE9400 Combo TV Card is able to support both digital (ATSC/QAM) and analog (NTSC) TV programs formats, and is embedded with a MPEG2 hardware encoder for reduced CPU loading with guaranteed high-quality video output – allowing users to enjoy versatility in an all-in-one PC multimedia package.
With the ASUS My Cinema – PE9400 Combo, users can watch and record high-quality digital and analog TV programs on their PCs simultaneously. This card adopts the brand-new PCI Express x1 interface, which is faster than the default PCI bus (133Mb/s) in transmission speed, and offers up to 500Mb/s or an improvement of almost 3 times over conventional technology. The PE9400 Combo also features less CPU resource requirements through an embedded MPEG2 hardware encoder so that CPU loading can be dramatically reduced. This allows users to surf the Internet and watch TV programs at the same time. What’s more, the PE9400 Combo comes with a built-in hardware noise reduction technology for the best video enjoyment.
Users can watch analog TV with digital TV over the air (or digital TV through a standard coaxial cable) simultaneously. With the built-in PBP (picture beside picture) and PIP (picture in picture) functions, users can also watch either analog TV or digital TV, and record a channel, or record two different channels at the same time.
The ASUS My Cinema – PE9400 Combo provides users with the choice of viewing digital or analog TV programs, schedule recordings, editing home movies, editing and burning DVD/VCDs, listening to FM and MP3 music or sorting videos and photographs. It can also provide a means to monitor the home with the ASUS VideoSecurity Online technology for a home monitoring system.
The full function remote controller offers users instant access to TV viewing, TV recording, EPG viewing, and DVD playing; all in the palm of their hands. Users will never miss a moment of their favorite TV programs anymore with the handy “pausing” of live TV programs.
