International (ADI) unveils its new DV-280 Digital Video Recorder today at the 2005 Broadband World Forum ushering in a new era of IPTV Without Borders TM
. The DV-280 is revolutionary. Connected to your TV and high-speed Internet line, the DV-280 can:
- Record up to 200 hours of your favorite TV shows without videotapes.
- Burn up to 30 hours of video to a single recordable DVD disc -- never fill up the hard disk!
- Play PC digital media -- digital photos, MP3 music and digital video -- directly from your PC to your TV set.
- Instantly rent top movies with DVD quality with full Pause/Fast Forward/Rewind functionality.
- Rent movies without driving to the store, and without paying late fees.
- Listen to hundreds of Internet radio stations.
- Download music from the Internet from a massive library of thousands of great songs.
To provide Internet-based TV services (IPTV), ADI will deploy the Aeon Digital Network. This network is available to any DV-280 customer with a high speed Internet connection, such as a cable modem or DSL. Just like the DV-280 DVR, the innovative Aeon Digital Network will change the way entertainment is delivered to and viewed in the home.
Until now, IPTV services such as high-quality video on demand have been available only from cable, satellite or telephone service providers. Aeon Digital Network is deployed on the Internet. Anyone with a high speed Internet connection can access this service.
The DIVA DV-280 DVR will be available at retail stores in early September for approximately $299. It will be carried under select OEM brand names.
