TAIPEI, Taiwan – Jan. 16, 2007 - Animation Technologies Inc. (8060,Taiwan), a pioneer in developing industry-first video multimedia solutions sold under the LifeView brand, announced today its collection of Windows Vista Premium Certified TV tuners for desktop and laptop PCs. This collection of Vista compatible TV tuners includes a variety of models for a number of interfaces, ensuring that consumers can find the perfect solution for their TV needs.
LifeView’s collection of Vista Premium Certified tuners includes multi-tuner models such as the FlyTV Express M5 MST-T2A2, a dual hybrid TV tuner that provides laptop users with true PIP viewing of any two TV channels at the same time, digital or analog. Built with dual DVB-T and dual analog TV tuners, the FlyTV Express M5 MST-T2A2 allows users to watch two analog TV channels, two digital TV channels, or both an analog and a digital TV channel simultaneously. Unlike other solutions on the market, the FlyTV Express M5 MST-T2A2 allows users to watch any two digital TV channels simultaneously, even on different transport streams. In Windows Media Center, the FlyTV Express M5 MST-T2A2 enables premium dual-tuner features such as recording one program while watching another, as well as dual program recording.
“Currently, people are worried about whether their peripherals have Vista drivers or not, and are concerned about compatibility,” said Kevin Mai, a LifeView product manager. “We are constantly at work creating drivers to ensure that our customers can continue using our products in Vista. We want to make solutions that simply work in Vista – no compatibility issues.”
