SiliconDust USA, Inc.., innovators of the HDHomeRun network attached TV tuner, today announced their expanded lineup of HDHomeRun devices adding two new models for North America and a new device for Europe and Australia: HDHR4-US, HDHR4-CC, HDHR4-DT2.
Initiating phase two of Project:Connect, the company's technology roadmap, HDHR4 devices will introduce hardware transcode support; high quality digital-to-digital conversion of high-bandwidth MPEG2 streams to bandwidth-friendly H.264.
??????????????????????????????"The next generation HDHomeRun devices will do what no other TV tuner has been able to do before," said Theodore Head, President and CEO of SiliconDust USA. "The HDHR4 devices will continue to be multi-tuner and network attached but with the ability to hardware transcode and support virtually any screen on the home network."
HDHR4 devices will function as a live TV Digital Media Server (DMS) to serve content to mobile devices, game consoles, and smart TVs.
"The HDHR4 implements the DLNA DMS Tuner Profile with transcode," said Nicholas Kelsey, Founder and CTO of SiliconDust USA. "Soon you will be watching broadcast and cable television in high definition on all the smart screens in your home."
HDHR4 devices will be available starting mid-2013; development units will be on display at the SiliconDust booth #15427 at the 2013 International CES at the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 8, 2013 through January 11, 2013.
